    Current Weight (28-day average):
    189.4

    Weekly change in 28-day average:
    -2.1

    Cumulative change (Month/Quarter/Year):
    0/0/-7.7

    This week's successes:
    • Accurate logging.
    • Maintaining meeting my step goal, added 100 more steps/day = 6,000 goal (current goal streak at 177 days).
    • Strength training 3x, other workouts 2x
    • Things have been reasonably better for macros.

    This week's challenges:
    • Mental health issues, while a bit more stable than the prior week, continue to be a huge challenge.

    I'm thankful I've figured out using IF as a tool, as I'm pretty sure that's the only reason I've continued to make such good progress.

    Weekly change in 28-day average:
    -1.3

    Cumulative change (Month/Quarter/Year):
    -1.8/-1.0/-5.6

    This week's successes:
    • Accurate logging.
    • Maintaining meeting my step goal, added 100 more steps/day = 5,900 goal (current goal streak at 170 days).
    • Strength training 3x, other workouts 3x

    This week's challenges:
    • More inconsistencies in macros.
    • Mental health issues have increased, to full crisis at the end of last week. Scaled back last med change, but still finding equilibrium. Not in full crisis since then, though, thankfully.

    It's been a ride. Hopefully will get back to some semblance of normal-ish/predictable levels.

    Original post:
    I'm not sure I have 52 pounds of fat that I want/need to lose at this point, but I'm close enough that I'm going to call myself "in."

    Starting weight: 197.1 pounds
    (HSW: 252, MFP restart: 242.7)
    5'1" F

    Goal: 21.5% body fat
    (currently estimated at 140-145)

    Current weight: 197.1
    Total challenge weight lost: 0.0

    This week's successes: Getting back into deficit after a maintenance break.
    This week's challenges: Extremely low motivation (for life-ing in general -- not out of the norm, as I battle physical and mental health issues on an ongoing basis).

    A heads up: I will likely go faster than 1 pound/week for the first 4-ish months, then looking to tighten up and go into a slow loss followed by a recomp phase. I'll likely make 52 pounds of weight loss on the scale with some skin loss (hopefully), along with lean mass having to do with the support of the fat stores I have. I am aiming to maintain/increase muscle mass and bone density, so that may throw off the scale results. I do hope to reach my goal body fat percentage by the year's end, whatever scale weight that puts me at.

    Starting weight: 190
    Current weight: 179.0
    Week 27 Total weight lost: 11.0

    This week's successes: Entered the second half of the 52/52 challenge. I will use this as a marker to start a new string of weight losses to keep pace with the 52 pounds in 52 weeks (1 pound per week) goal.

    This week's challenges: .Oh boy, I have really sabotaged my 52 pounds in 52 weeks effort the past few weeks. I am afraid I’ve let myself get so far off the 52/52 curve that I will not be able to recover. However, I will continue to hang around with this forum for the motivation and inspiration you all give me.

    11 lbs are a lot! Keep on going!

    Highest weight: 250 (07/11/18)
    Challenge starting weight: 192 (07/01/20)
    Goal weight: 150
    Current weight: 188.8 (07/05/2020)
    Total weight lost: -61.2
    Challenge weight loss: -3.2

    This week's successes: I stayed in my calorie range since I restarted on 7/1/20. I had gained 25 pounds during COVID and every week I avoided weighing in because I knew that I was trying to dig myself out of a huge hole. I decided to restart. So far it seems to have helped me get back on track.
    This week's failures: Well, I restarted mid-week and I had a lot of binge eating during the first part of the week.

    Total weight lost: 4.2
    This week's successes: I did not quit the challenge.

    Total weight lost: 11 lbs
    This week's successes: I have been exercising every day. Eating healthy.
    This week's challenges: craving sweets and pizza. After my bloodwork the end of July I think I will treat myself to something that is off my list to eat like a piece of cake.

    Current Weight (28-day average):

    Weekly change in 28-day average:
    -1.0

    Cumulative change (Month/Quarter/Year):
    -1.0/-1.0/-8.7

    This week's successes:
    • Accurate logging.
    • Maintaining meeting my step goal, added 100 more steps/day = 6,100 goal (current goal streak at 183 days).
    • Strength training 3x
    • Diligence allowed me to be close to a net even for deficit despite a binge.

    This week's challenges:
    • Mental health issues now compounded by sleep issues
    • Binged on Sunday
    • Feeling stuck in maintenance now.... again.

    Really feeling like an Eeyore, but don't have the energy to fake it right now. Sorry to be a downer. I'm sure part of it is cyclical, so we'll see how things shake out.

    5'1" F

    Goal: 21.5% body fat
    (currently estimated at 140-145)

    Current weight: 197.1
    Total challenge weight lost: 0.0

    This week's successes: Getting back into deficit after a maintenance break.
    This week's challenges: Extremely low motivation (for life-ing in general -- not out of the norm, as I battle physical and mental health issues on an ongoing basis).

    A heads up: I will likely go faster than 1 pound/week for the first 4-ish months, then looking to tighten up and go into a slow loss followed by a recomp phase. I'll likely make 52 pounds of weight loss on the scale with some skin loss (hopefully), along with lean mass having to do with the support of the fat stores I have. I am aiming to maintain/increase muscle mass and bone density, so that may throw off the scale results. I do hope to reach my goal body fat percentage by the year's end, whatever scale weight that puts me at.

    You are not stuck! You have accomplished so much!

    I appreciate the sentiment that I believe is behind your post, but I do know the difference between deficit/maintenance/surplus. Unfortunately, today saw me landing in surplus territory, even when averages over a week... The average weight has been playing catch-up, so it seems a bit like I'm losing, though I'm not right now.

    Hopefully it's a cycle thing and not a new med thing, because the new med is actually sort of helpful this time. Time will tell, in either case.
