    @MadisonMolly2017 - I love all the green!
  • mtaratootmtaratoot Member Posts: 2,861 Member Member Posts: 2,861 Member

    I am SUPPOSED TO BE in maintenance with a goal weight of 143 pounds and an allowable goal range of 140-150 pounds and an IDEAL goal range of 142 - 148. I fluctuate wildly day-to-day, and try to stay fairly steady month-to-month. I often succeed, and sometimes I am not exactly where I want to be. I will update here once per week and report my ten-day average weight.

    May 23: 2019: 144.3 - At goal; Ultimate final weight and bottom of IDEAL goal range. I was around my lowest average weight on my entire journey. Those were good days. Oddly, this average weight is exactly the same as the day before I left for Roatan and the day I got back. Interesting!

    February 23: Did not weigh; I was on a fabulous dive trip on Roatan off the coast of Honduras. Was near my ideal weight when I left and when I returned; I strive to get back to that weight, and I'd love to go do some warm water diving again.
    March 23: Ten-day average 147.0 - Near the top of IDEAL goal range.
    April 23: Ten-day average 148.5 - Over the top of my IDEAL goal range; almost top of absolute goal range.
    May 23: Ten-day average 148.9 - Still not less than a month ago, but close; Over the top of IDEAL goal range; almost top of absolute goal range. But - daily scale weight is down over 3.5 pounds in the last four days and today's is back inside my ideal range. Not by much, but yay!

    I still don't weigh less than a month ago, but at least it is less than a half pound difference. As mentioned, I'm also at a scale weight inside my ideal goal range, so I can be glad about that. I am up just shy of two pounds from two months ago, about 4.5 pounds from a quarter ago and a year ago - same exact average. I weigh every day and track trends, and yesterday was the first day that the Trendweight app told me my weekly trend was going down again. The projection is pointing in the right direction.

    I am SUPPOSED TO BE in maintenance with a goal weight of 143 pounds and an allowable goal range of 140-150 pounds and an IDEAL goal range of 142 - 148. I fluctuate wildly day-to-day, and try to stay fairly steady month-to-month. I often succeed, and sometimes I am not exactly where I want to be. I will update here once per week and report my ten-day average weight.

    May 30: 2019: 144.8 - Just a couple pounds over my goal, but still in the middle of my IDEAL goal range.

    February 30: 144.3 OK, there's no such thing as February 30. I was on a fabulous dive trip on Roatan off the coast of Honduras and away from my scale from February 21 through March 2. Either could stand in, but March 2 makes more sense. It's the mathematical equivalent to February 30 in a leap year. Funny thing - my ten day average was exactly the same for both entries. This was near my ideal weight. I strive to get back to that weight, and I'd love to go do some warm water diving again. Close to my goal and in the bottom third of my IDEAL goal range.

    March 30: Ten-day average 146.3 - In the top third of IDEAL goal range.

    April 30: Ten-day average 149.1 - Over the top of my IDEAL goal range; almost top of absolute goal range.

    May 30: Ten-day average 148.9 - Finally! Less than a month ago! I am still just over the top of IDEAL goal range and about just as close to the top of my absolute goal range. As a bonus, 10-day average is exactly the same as a week ago, and scale weight is down almost half a pound since then. My scale went UP six pounds in two days between Sunday and Tuesday because I allowed myself a food fest at a barbecue for Memorial Day. I knew that would go up, and it's coming back fairly well. When will I get back to goal? I hope some time soon. No more feasts any time soon. But there's going to be lots of ripe fruit in the back yard.

    Maybe June will be kinder to me. Or maybe I'll be kinder to myself in June.
