    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 recorded from June: 145.6

    Average weight Week of...
    June 24-30: 145.5
    July 1-7: 148.6
    July 8-14: 147.0
    July 15-21: 145.3
    July 22-28: 145.2
    July 29- August 4:

    Success of the week: This is really starting to look like maintenance, and it's right at my revised goal weight and smack in the middle of my revised goal range. I'm actually even smack in the middle of my ORIGINAL maintenance range. I would still like to get back to my original goal. It's just a couple pounds lower, but those two pounds have proven difficult. I'm not beating myself up about it, and I'm fine with the revised goals because they make it easier for me to feel successful where I am.

    Struggle of the week: Tacos. I had to run to another city to do some errands, and I met my ex for tacos. One of the specials was calamari. Calamari taco? Hell yeah. I also got an adobada and treated myself to a strawberry-jalapeno margarita. My ex got chips and guac to share. The only bummer is this particular taco shop isn't as good as it used to be, so I didn't enjoy my lunch as much as I should. Also my shoulder is still keeping me from bike commuting. I bet if I got in that hour per day on the bike, those last two pounds would vanish from my mass and go somewhere else.

    :

    Success(es)/struggle(s) of the week:Weight up slightly from last week. I guess this is my normal 131-132 well within my range. I still would like to see 130 although considering I was 330+ a few years ago, a family member told me I should be proud of want I have accomplished. Sometimes I feel like I have to keep pushing myself so I don't go back to that weight. Does anyone else ever feel that way?

    Yes, i certainly do. Lost around 75lbs, 230 ish at my heaviest. It's definitely feels like it, and I'm almost 3 years into maintenance. Looks like you are doing a great job though, congratulations!

    Name Lesley
    Age: 68
    Height: 155 cm (5’ 1”)
    Total weight lost: 22.5 kg (approx. 50 lb)
    Time it took to lose: 9 months
    How long in maintenance: 3 months
    Maintenance weight range: 48 – 51 kg (106 – 112 lbs)
    Average weight recorded from 2018: max 72.5 kg in July, 56 kg in Dec

    Average weight recorded from January: 54.7 kg
    Average weight recorded from February: 53.3 kg
    Average weight recorded from March: 51.7 kg
    Average weight recorded from April: 50.2 kg (110.7 lb)
    Average weight recorded from May: 49.9 kg (110 lb)
    Average weight recorded from June: 48.7 kg (107 lb)

    July 1: 49.5 kg
    July 8: 48.1 kg (106 lb)
    July 13: 47.8 kg (105 lb)
    July 22: 49.1 kg (108 lb)
    July 29: 48.2 kg (106 lb)

    Success(es)/struggles of the week: I was out and about on Tuesday and Wednesday, involving travelling about 6 hours each day (mostly being driven by someone else) and “picnic” lunches, lots of bread and pastry. And cake! Two days quietly at home then a day out on Saturday with a meal out in the evening. As a result my weight has fluctuated wildly all week, down to 47.7 and back up to 48.2 this morning.
    I’ve got Libra on my phone now so I can see the graph and the trend which is now at 48.3 but going down again. Like @pkweier I worry about gaining weight but I also need to stop losing weight. This is so difficult!

    Total weight lost: about 50lbs
    Time it took to lose: on and off 3 years. First 30 in 4 months and then gradually reduced goal weight
    How long in maintenance: Since May 2017
    Maintenance weight range: 115-120

    Week of 7 July: 116.25
    Week of 13 July: 116.5
    Week of 20 July: 115.5
    Week of 27 July: 117.75

    Successes/struggles: all struggle this week, which is ironic as I’m off work and thought I’d find it easier but turns out without routine and, crucially, childcare, I don’t do so well! Limited exercise, lots of mindless eating and here I am! Still within range but it’s the behaviours rather than the number that bothers me. Anyway, I now have some childcare again and have got a good long run in this morning to clear my head. Going to focus on the behaviours not the scale over the next few days and trust the process.

    Wishing you all a great week x

    Success(es)/struggle(s) of the week: I have not done any strength excercises in two weeks and it's showing on the scale. We are going camping this weekend (not a fan) and it's going to be tough to keep on track. I haven't been consistent with my food diary either. For me, timely logging my food its key otherwise working from memory it's never accurate. I hope you guys have a good week.

    Funny if you look at my absolute weights it looks like I'm dropping weight quickly, down from 116 to 112?!?! That's 4lbs! But if you look at my trendweight, you can see that I am really staying in the low 114 to high 113lb range. Funny, lol.

    July 22-28: 145.2
    July 29- August 4: 144.6 (weighing in early as I won't be by a scale on 4 August)

    Success of the week: Even though my July average is up from June, I think I am firmly back in maintenance, and it's looking like I may be able to retire my "revised goal weight and range" and settle back in where I originally intended. I had a big spike in early June, but it's coming back down.

    Struggle of the week: Melons and figs. Watermelon and cantaloupe from Hermiston are in. I've been indulging. My fig trees are producing delicious treats. Mmmmm.
