    Hi! My name is Kristen. And I struggle to maintain my weight. I have had great success losing/gaining, but I'm hoping this group helps me be more accountable. I weigh only 1x week on Sundays, so that's when I'll check in. My 2 goals in 2020 are to not let the scale go above 153 and weigh in EVERY Sunday for the WHOLE YEAR. This seems easy to most, but I get lazy and make excuses why I don't need to weigh in and then all of a sudden everything in my closet has shrunk. LOL

    Successes: There was a real in person 5K to run!!! And even in July I ran 45 seconds off my PR! We're going to smash those PRs in the fall!!! Weight is up a little into my maintenance range. Might try to only cut a bit for marathon season.

    Average weight Week of...

    Success of the week: Even though my average weight is up a bit this week, the trend is still down, and I'm still on track to get it back to the middle or lower end of my maintenance range. My average weight in June was moderating back down from May and from April. Soon I'll be back to where I was in March which was where I prefer to be.

    Struggle of the week: Nothing that I really recall.

    Successes: I’m maintaining!
    Increasing my exercise level by about 7%. Split my late afternoon walk/hike into 2 exercise times (AM & a little before sunset) to
    limit UV exposure & the negative impact of high heat. Also gives me TWO hits of endorphins to handle stress etc.

    Struggles: None that are exercise, food, or scale related.
    STILL waiting for some important lab test results...
    I pro-actively decreased the work stress. I realized some of it came from my choosing to overwork. Stopped that.

    Successes/challenges:
    I'm made improvements in sleep (my body is now often naturally waking up right before my alarm does!), have been great with exercise and was doing well with my eating up until the weekend.

    On the weekend had a struggle, being badly influenced by my partner, who doesn't eat the same as I do. While I stuck to the right foods, I ended up snacking between meals and not fasting for as long as I usually would overnight. We also ate way more dark chocolate than should have. It's okay to do once in a while, but it also reminds me why I have struggled for so many decades - when you share your life with someone, end up compromised.

    Success: I ran my first 1/2 marathon on Saturday with a 10:27 pace. More proud of that accomplishment than losing weight. Of course, I could not have finished at that pace without the weight loss.

    Struggles: I ate more carbs than normal the week before the race and it shows on the scale. I don't think I ate over maintenance, but I am also still trying to figure out how many calories keeps me in maintenance.

    Success/Struggles: Enjoyed my 4th of July weekend immensely! Pretty much didn’t log for 2 days, which is the first time I’ve done that in almost 5 months. But, that being said, I’m literally up only 1 ½ pounds after all of that. Back on track yesterday so I should see that drop off in a day or two tops I’m guessing. Got back to running yesterday (it had been like a week or more) and knocked out 3 miles which was nice. Weight training is going well (nothing massive, just something light). Fitting into my old medium sized shirts again!
