    I understand about the desire to go a little lower. I am thinking I would be better under 150 but am happy to be under 155 and willing to go real slow any further lower. I am working on recomp, lots of walks, strong cardio 3 to 4 days and weights 3 days. Feeling healthy!

    I can’t believe how your experience mirrors mine. Although I am one inch taller and older than you, the amount of time it took to lose, the amount of time in maintenance, our current weight and our struggle/success at the moment are the same. I can’t believe it. I just started doing hills on the treadmill and I am looking for ways to build up my strength as I do well with cardio 6 days per week. I have Multiple Sclerosis so I can’t do as much as I would like but my head is in the right place and I feel pretty strong despite everything. Thank you for your post. Beacon8

    Success(es)/struggle(s) of the week: Up a little this week. Was out a few days this week. Went a saw Come Away in NYC excellent play, then Friday saw Menopause at our local theater. I choose wisely and brought some home I know from past experience the salt in the meal makes me "gain". Have a great week everyone.

    Success(es)/struggle(s) of the week: An expected jump in the scale after a salty meal eating out. Still, there were some of the mini-cycles of high- and low-calorie days lately that have characterized the last few weeks. There's a temptation that comes with, "hey, I know that I can eat all of the food tonight because I've been able to get back on track right afterwards" that's a slippery slope.

    @mtaratoot I appreciate the reality check. I think some of my frustration stemmed not just from the number of days I exercised, but also from having to push myself much harder than usual to get in what I did. I think it may be time to mix things up, exercise-wise, to help with that.

    Have a great week, everyone!
