    I received my second of a two-shot series of shingles vaccines on Tuesday. By Tuesday night I became very ill. Almost passed out in the night on my way back to bed from the restroom, went down and hit my head. Laid on the floor for a while and then finally made my way back to bed. I called in sick on Wednesday which according to my colleges has never happened before and I have worked at the same company for 21 years. Diet wise I could not take in enough calories for a few days and while I did exercise through Tuesday night after that it was out of the question. Finally feeling some better this morning. Not sure if I will exercise today or not.

    Yeah those shingles shots are absolutely the worst!!!! I had terrible reactions (fever and migraines etc) with both of them. The first was so bad I ****almost*** did not want the second. However with the second I was prepared and when it hit me in the middle of the night I had meds around. Hope you are feeling better soon. For me 4 days and all done.

    @erjones11 That is awful! I had the shingles vaccines last year and they were very painful, but nothing like your experience. Just take care and I hope you feel better soon.

    Height: 5'4"
    Total weight lost: About 43 pounds
    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
    Average weight recorded from March: 110.6
    Average weight recorded from April: 110.0

    Average weight recorded for August: 111.9
    Average weight recorded for September: 112.6
    Average weight recorded for Oct: 112.2

    Week of..
    Nov 2: 111.7 (trend 112.0)
    Nov 9: 111 (trend 111.6)
    Nov 16: 111.4 (trend (111.5)
    Nov 23: 110.7 (trend 111.1)
    Nov 30:

    Success(es)/struggle(s) of the week: Still continuing to trend downwards back into the middle of my range! Of course, with the holidays, holiday parties, lots of baking, and a week-long vacation thrown in over the next month, I'm unlikely to keep trending downwards. I'm hoping to get back to 109.5-110, which is where I'm most comfortable at, though I'll still be satisfied with staying in the 110.5 range over the next few weeks.

    @erjones11 I hope you're feeling better now - that's a pretty terrible reaction! I just had my first yesterday and have only had a bit of soreness. Give yourself enough time to fully recover and don't push back into things too quickly!

    Thank you Kgirl. Yes very painful. I am glad yours was not like mine. I learned my sister had a similar reaction as me on her second dose as well. Genetics

    Hi I'm new here. But not new to maintenance. I hope this time I actually do just that this time...

    Age: 40 (until December 3rd)
    Sex: Female
    Height: 5'11"
    Total weight lost: 16 pounds
    Time it took to lose: 2ish months
    How long in maintenance: Couple weeks
    Goal Weight: 150 (Hit November 8th)
    Maintenance weight range: 147 - 153


    Average weight recorded for September: 160.1
    Average weight recorded for October: 154.0

    Week of...
    November 3: 150.8 (Trend Weight: 151.3)
    November 10: 148.8 (Trend: 150.2)
    November 17: 148.8 (Trend: 149.3)
    November 24: 148.4 (Trend: 148.7)


    Successes: Was able to enjoy a brewery and fried food yesterday and still lose a tad bit of weight. I've got my Thanksgiving meal plan worked out and food bought. Going to try and dry brine the turkey for the first time. I'll let you know how that goes. Not logging this Thursday or next Tuesday (my birthday) so we'll also see how that goes...

    Struggles: From now until vacation I have 12 work days left. My coworkers are going to learn how obnoxious I get when I'm excited about something! Lol

    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 recorded from July: 146.5
    Average weight recorded from August: 145.8
    Average weight recorded from September:143.2
    Average weight recorded from October: 142.3

    Average weight Week of...
    October 28 - November 3: 143.8
    November 4 = 10: 145.1
    November 11 - 17: 144.7
    November 18 - 24: 144.6
    November 25 - December 1:

    Success of the week: I seem to have been able to stop the slow gain that started near the beginning of October. My daily weight never got out of my maintenance range, but I was getting close. I actually had started to see it come off the peak last week; this week was really just maintaining pretty well.

    Struggle of the week: As steady as I've been, I still seem to be just a little over the goal I have for my average weight. Holiday week coming up may be a challenge. If I can hold steady, even a little higher than I like, that should be ok for the coming week.

    November 17th: 159.7 (trend 161.8)
    November 24th: 160.1 (trend 161.5)

    Success(es)/struggle(s) of the week: A relatively uneventful week. Still some calorie rollercoastering, but generally things are okay. Having a holiday meal at work this week shouldn't make much of a difference - we generally don't have time to sit down for long, and I can stick to the healthier stuff.

    Have a great week, everyone!

    @lesdarts180, just wanted to send ((( <3))) to you and your family.

    I was in your position 2 1/2 years ago and know what the uncertainty is like.

    I hope the diagnosis goes well, h.

    November 26: 145.7 (Trend:146.4)

    Welcome to November!


    Successes: Trend line going the other way. I'm still trying to find out where my low weight / maint range should be. I know I'm close to where I want to be but we'll see where I settle in. I'm thinking of trying 140 - 145 and see how I feel through out the day and during my running. Starting to get push ups and situps / planks integrated into my morning and evening routine. I want to eventually get to being able to knock out 100 / 100 twice a day.

    Struggles: Finding time to run with 10 hour day shift while getting a proper amount of sleep to be prepared for a full active day at work. Think I might try to do 5 runs over 4 days with one 2 a day to get through the 5 runs I have a week
