    June 2nd: 161.1
    June 8th: 161.8
    June 16th: 159.9
    June 22nd: 161

    Success(es)/struggle(s) of the week: Things have been so busy I forgot to write this last weekend. Everything is going well (except being, obviously, busy) and the anomalous dip bounced back up as predicted.

    Starting vacation on Thursday and will be gone for a bit more than a couple of weeks, with lots of driving and fun foods to eat (I won't be turning down lobster in Maine.) I'm going in well under range and expect to be around the bottom of it afterward. My main concern is finding ways to not lose too much progress with my strength training...I'm going to try to be creative with bodyweight exercises.

    Have a great week everyone!

    Success/struggles of the week: Was traveling to see old friends. Finally home for the rest of the summer. Although my weight has been constant, I have been eating too much sugar and I am craving it each day so my goal for this week is to mostly avoid eating sugar (like cookies and ice cream). I also want to increase my exercise for the rest of summer.

    Success/struggles of the week: Hello all! Looks like its time for me to join maintenance. I'm starting to up my calories to slow down my admittedly fast weight loss (Thanks multiple 100 mile months since march). I'm going to have to get from 2k calories a day to somewhere around 3100 calories with my current level of activity. I know I can eat that much as I obviously was eating that before I started recording. Anybody who wants to add me and keep me accountable to continue logging/checking in please do!

    June 30:

    Successes/struggles: Technically spent the last two weeks in a deficit trying to get back within my maintenance range, so it was a bit of a struggle to stay within my lower than normal calorie goal. The plus side was that I killed all of my workouts, but with that came some pretty extreme hunger, so I was feeling sluggish at the end of most days.

    Time it took to lose: 1 year and 2 months
    How long in maintenance: I hit my goal weight in the beginning of January 2018, but officially started maintenance in mid-March 2018 after figuring out my calories for a couple of months.
    Maintenance weight range: 108-111.5
    Average weight recorded from 2018 (12 months): 109.8

    Average weight recorded from January: 111
    Average weight recorded from February: 110.8

    June 22: 112.4 (trend 111.6)
    June 29: 111.9 (trend 111.8)

    Success(es)/struggle(s) of the week: I'm catching up on two weeks' worth of data as I was away last week. I've been doing planned surplus weeks with banked calories for the past couple of weeks, and it definitely shows as both my average weights and trending weights have crept up and are now outside the high end of my maintenance range. I'm trying not to be too concerned with it, as I know it's likely a combination of eating out at restaurants/high sodium meals quite often in addition to the surplus/extra food. I also kept my activity level up last week and got in 3 days with over 20k steps. I've got two more weeks that I plan to eat at a surplus (quick vacation for the 4th weekend, then a couple of meals out the following week), and then I plan to go into a couple of deficit weeks with fewer meals out after that.

    Average in 2019 so far: 153.5
    <153? Not yet, but closer!


    Successes:
    Got creeping wt graph to turn downwards - finally!

    Successful in dropping average calories in June to 180 fewer per day than in May!!

    Continuing to adjust to maintenance -
    10 day average is down 0.84lb since Jan 1!

    Practicing leaving food on plate has helped.

    Challenges:
    stopped exercising about 12 days ago when I came down with this cold. Thought I was better, did more, and now it’s worse again. (I’m immunosuppressed.) so, I’m concerned that my weight loss has been due to lack of exercise. I must admit I love feeling leaner, but know strength & health must come first.

    If weight goes back to 154-155 when I get back to exercising, I will adjust my maintenance range up.

    Trends are looking much better. Glad that my gradual changes are working.

    Things I need to improve in July:
    Continue to do what I need to do to get 7+ hours of sleep✅

    Continue to Keep calorie average under 1900 ✅

    Get back to gym once chest clears. Begin with some easy walks & stretches at home.

    Be Careful: Limit eating out, especially.

    I hope you all are doing well.

    💕

    Success(es)/struggle(s) of the week: Weight is up which I expected ate out Thurs/Fri takes a couple of days for that to come off. My daughter went and got their marriage license now just waiting on a date. They will be getting married by a JP they sent out invitations to a party to celebrate for Aug 10 although getting married before then when is the question. I'm a planner and not knowing what is going on is driving me crazy.

    HEAVIEST weight: 175.4 in early 2013.
    Total Weight lost: 30 pounds
    Time it took to lose: ~6 months
    How long in maintenance: Since July 2018 -- but with some fluctuation outside of goal range.
    Maintenance weight range: 142 - 148 (and not sure that's the right answer)

    Average weight recorded from 2017 (12 months): 163.8
    Average weight recorded from 2018 (12 months): 150.7

    Average weight recorded from January: 148.4
    Average weight recorded from February: 146.3
    Average weight recorded from March: 143.2
    Average weight recorded from April: 143.0
    Average weight recorded from May: 144.1

    Average weight Week of...
    May 27-June 2: 145.7
    June 3-9: 145.8
    June 10-16: On the RIVER
    June 17-23: Only a couple days of weights since I got back -- but I'm doing well at 143.2 scale weight.
    June 24-30: 145.5

    Success of the week: I didn't see it as a success until I filled in this data for this challenge. My scale weight is UP higher than it's been since last October, but my average weight seems to be holding the same as the rest of the month.


    Struggle of the week: It looks like I'm still going the wrong direction. Time to fix that!

    Average weight recorded from March: 51.7 kg
    Average weight recorded from April: 50.2 kg (110.7 lb)

    June 23: 48.3 kg (106.5 lb)
    June 30: 49.5 kg (109 lb)

    Success(es)/struggle(s) of the week: We were away for 5 nights (5 hotel breakfasts and 3-course dinners), with a long coach journey there on Sunday and back on Friday. I weighed 50.5 kg on Saturday morning but lost 1 kg by this morning. I expect the rest to go quite quickly. My proper weigh-in day is Monday so I will report in again tomorrow – in the July thread. We did a lot of walking and I used the hotel pool for a 30 minute swim 4 evenings.
    I recently bought a new phone and I should be able to add a few more apps – I’m thinking I might try a weight trend app. What do people recommend for an android phone? I usually weigh every day when I’m at home but of course can’t weigh on holiday but I would like to see the overall pattern and averages and trend.

    Good luck everyone and see you in July!
