    I'm new to maintenance. I didn't log monthly totals.

    Starting weight: 222
    Current weight: 127
    How long maintaining: 1 month

    Successes struggles: weight went up 5lbs in the last month when I increased calories and I only upped a little, I'm hoping it'll go back down as I hadn't been eating more than 100 exercise calories back. All I can think of is it's glycogen. I've been discouraged and not in the mood to work out as hard because of this. I'm a little nervous about Thanksgiving as I've planned to enjoy it and not worry about calories but don't want to gain more weight.

    Maintenance does that. When you first increase calories you will retain more water and have more waist in your system. Don’t give up on your exercise you need what made you lose successful help you maintain. Easing in to maintenance by slowly increasing calories helped me figure things out.

    Name: missperfectpitch
    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 from May: 109.9
    Average weight recorded for June: 111.2
    Average weight recorded for July: 111.9
    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: 111.6 (trend 111.4)

    Success(es)/struggle(s) of the week: A bit of a bump up in my weight, but that was not unexpected this week with eating out Wednesday night, Thanksgiving on Thursday, and monthly hormonal water retention. The next several weeks will be more of the same with birthday week, holiday parties week, a vacation week + Christmas, then New Year's. I've already planned out those weeks to be surplus weeks and banked calories for them, but I'm still planning to keep my exercise and steps up to try to stay within my range.

    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 recorded from November: 144.4

    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: 144.9

    Success of the week: My November weight trend has been amazingly consistent even though it's up a pound from November 1. October wasn't a good month, so at least November didn't bring another BIG gain; just a small one. I'm still in the middle of my range, but I've had some crazy days when the scale was way up (or down). I need to remind myself that despite this small gain, I am actually maintaining pretty well. Not ideal, but pretty good.

    Struggle of the week: I ended November on a high weight. Oh well. My trending weight was actually pretty flat all month, but it's higher in my range than I want. But still in range.
