    Success(es)/struggle(s) of the week: I cheated on my keto lifestyle on Sunday. The peach pie wasn't worth it being kicked out of ketosis. Anyways, I restarted yesterday with intermittent fasting and worked out with weights for an hour. Hopefully I will be back in ketosis soon.

    Thank you for setting this up! I am only one month into maintenance, so this will be a great tool for me.

    Week of July 23: (Goal 2300 daily average cal)
    Week of July 30: (Goal 2400 daily average cal)

    Weekly successes and struggles: I've upped my calories to over 2000 calories. With my current activity level (high 4-5 runs a week, 2 gym visits) my current maintenance level is probably in the range of 3000. As you can see above I'm going to try and slowly raise my intake as long as I'm able to maintain my current activity level. Trying not to be scared of the increases. I know if im diligent the math will be manageable. I've switched from low calorie bread to more delicious varieties!

    Success(es)/struggle(s) of the week: I did my weekly weigh-in a few days early, I know I have some not-so-great eating plans this evening and tomorrow (however I did drag myself to the gym at 5:30am today to make sure I got a good work out in, to help out with my eating plans), so I knew my Friday weigh-in would be up due to water gain etc not a true gain, so I just went ahead and used todays weight 😊 I’m happy with it, I was trending up a bit the last 2 weeks, glad to see things back on the lower end of my maintenance range.

    Happy 4th of July everyone!

    Successes/Struggles: Monthly visitor showed up early, wasn't expecting her until next week. Bloating, aided by the fact that I had 3 cheat days in a row due to work event. (I work remotely, twice a year they fly in all the employees for 3 days of working together and socializing)

    Success(es)/struggles of the week: My last check in at the end of June was immediately after returning from a week away in a hotel. My “official” weigh- in on Monday July 1st was still high but the weight has been dropping off since and now, midweek I’m back to 48.5 kg.
    It is hard to get used to these fluctuations, 2 kg between Saturday morning and Thursday morning is a drop of 4.4 lb for those working in lbs. I know in my head it’s mostly water (and other digestive tract contents) but it is really difficult to stop that knee jerk expletive!
    This maintenance business is really difficult.
    Good luck to you all.

    Successes/Struggles: *Whew* the bloat finally passed. Back to normal.

    I'm really struggling to stay within my calorie goals, I don't know if they are just unreasonable. It seems like I did not struggle so much in the past and I'm not sure what changed, except that I'm watching more closely. Maybe that is it. I'm not going super over, so that is good.

    Successes/Struggles: Back into maintenance range. Feeling good with no major challenges/issues at the moment. Have a 2-week vacation coming up at the end of the month, so would like to be at the low end of maintenance going into it. Going to Alaska (not a cruise), so should be an active vacation and not be too challenging to come back without gaining much. Biggest challenge will be the two VERY LONG travel days (getting to Alaska from Indiana is not an easy task!).

    Success(es)/struggle(s) of the week:
    At a place with fancy breakfasts ...I’ve had yogurt parfait each morning & loving it. (A huge change for me.)

    Ate out the first 2 nights. Decided I’d rather cook. So, we are! Tasty & easier to track & better macros/sodium.

    Began walking again after lingering illness on July 4. Building up the minutes fairly rapidly. Soon, back to the gym!

    Struggles: None atm.
    Feeling pretty good about things.

    The turning point was realizing I love weighing 153 or less. Making progress towards that!

    My habits seem to be working. Fingers crossed.

    Success(es)/struggles of the week: My weight dipped below 48 kg this week – an over-correction from last week – and I didn’t like the look of it. I caught sight of myself in the hall mirror coming down the stairs in short shorts and my legs were too skinny – all bony round the knees. I can’t believe I’m saying this but I need to gain a bit. I’ve struggled with my weight my whole adult life, mostly keeping it under control with frequent yo-yo-ing. Now I’m having to plan strategies for gaining a little weight but trying to make sure it is muscle, not flab. I think it’s called “recomp” here on mfp and involves including more protein.
    I think @jan110144 had a similar experience recently? Of course, we are a similar age and that very skinny look is not good on mature folk – it can make you look ill. Similarly, it is even more important as you age to keep strong so you can continue to do all the activities you enjoy.
    However, I’m away in the motorhome again at the end of the week so that will be another challenge to add to the mix!

    This is an amazing thing to me. Never in my wildest imagination did I ever think I would hear myself saying I need to gain weight! I seem to be leveling out now. My weight does not fluctuate much, so my "yo-yoing" tends to be within a very small 1-2 pound range. Enjoy your motorhome trip!

    Success(es)/struggle(s) of the week: I am finally having early morning walks three times a week (about 7 km each) and working out with weights three times a week. It may be the reason I lost a bit of weight. I may need to add more calories to my maintenance if I keep working out like this. I feel good and I am eating a bit more carbs here and there such as sweet potatoes, etc. I also made Keto icecream and it was delish. I will try more flavors. Good luck to all the members this week!

    Success(es)/struggle(s) of the week:
    I initially put a stone on to come back up from 8 stone to 9 stone as I had been ill and the lose of a stone made me feel weak. Now back to 9 stone but the struggle is maintenance at the moment. Holiday season and social events are proving difficult, though upping the exercise to try to balance out.
