    Time it took to lose: 4 months
    How long in maintenance: 2 week
    Maintenance weight range: 150-155 (rough guess at the moment)

    Week of July 2: 159.2 lbs
    Week of July 9: 160.4 (158.6 7 Day avg)
    Week of July 16: (Goal 2200 daily average cal)
    Week of July 23: (Goal 2300 daily average cal)
    Week of July 30: (Goal 2400 daily average cal)

    Weekly successes and struggles:I'm ahead of my calorie goal. I was eating around 2300-2400 this last week. Had a big flux up today because I covered a first shift on my day off (I'm third shift) and I'm not as "regular" at the moment. Back to normal schedule this week so hopefully things get a bit more regular in that department.

    Took a day, but after a 3 lb up flux, I had the opposite 3lb down tick. Trying to get to 2500 calories as my trend is still going down, but I'm struggling a bit. I want to continue eating mostly my own food because eating out and from the employee grill constantly is what got me to my biggest weights. Getting another 500 on top of that seems like so much but I know it's just getting used to it.

    Success(es)/struggle(s) of the week: I had a very good meal planning week, stuck to my plan.. but I had a lot of unnecessary nighttime snacking.. so that needs to get under control! Was a little bummed to see the 1lb jump this morning from yesterday's weigh-in, but I know I was within goal yesterday, so probably just some water I’m holding on to. I have 1 more week until my husband gets back from his 10-week training program, so one last week to really stick to my plan. Things always get a little off track when he’s around!

    I’m weighing in a couple of days early as I’m away in the motorhome for a few days now.
    Success(es)/struggles of the week: My weight has been below 48 kg all week, but I hope I have caught the downward trend. On Wednesday morning the scale was at 47.3 so I decided to have a rest day – no gym, no cardio workouts, I didn’t even do my abs and planks. However, I spent a good 3 hours in the garden – fighting with the ivy and brambles that are taking over the fences and hedges. Stretching up, bending low, pulling, raking, using a selection of hand and powered tools and taking heavy bags of stuff to the tip! So not much of rest really!
    Well, I’ll be eating more while I’m away, so perhaps next week I’ll be back over 48 kg.

    July 14th: 160.6

    Success(es)/struggle(s) of the week: I've just returned from a couple of weeks on vacation, in which I didn't have scales of any sort, logged everything (albeit SWAGish), and had the goal of gaining a couple of pounds to get closer to the bottom of my range. I figured that being a bit more sedentary coupled with lots of opportunities to eat good food would make this easy. Sooo, I stepped on the scale this morning with bated breath and found that I am...down half a pound since my last weigh-in. :lol: This, coupled with the fact that I didn't do any resistance training while away, is sure to be reflected in my next lifting session. My goal for the next few weeks will be to up calories a bit, keep protein intake where it ought to be (which was definitely less than it should have been while traveling), and make some muscle.

    Have a great week everyone!

    Success of the week: Lost some of what I had gained and am back in the maintenance range I initially set and well within the expanded range.

    Struggle of the week: Oregon Country Fair August 12-14. There's so much amazing food out there.... I actually didn't weigh from August 12-15, so we'll see next week what damage I did. Spoiler: I gained less than a pound over that five days of massive eating!

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

    Weekly successes and struggles: I've been sticking to around 2500 daily calories and my 7 day average maintained the same. I think I'll stay at this caloric level for another week and continue to monitor. Just based on math I expect my 7 day will drop a bit. This is the first time I'm comparing averages. I'll keep trying to look at that to not let daily fluctuations drive my decisions.
