    Successes/Struggles: Easy week. Finally had a chance to go hiking Saturday. It felt to so good to get out into the mountains. I won't hike by myself but because of Covid, it is difficult to get someone to go with. Went with my son in different cars, wore masks, and stayed 6 ft a part. Everyone else on the trail wore masks also. It was great.

    Success/Struggles:

    I think I'm really starting to feel the struggles of COVID now. I'm also having a lot of stress from school. It's been a 2 year journey to lose 70lbs total, so having this backslide is a bit discouraging.

    Successes:
    I’m maintaining weight right where I want it – after a summer with a lot of holidays and other eating out opportunities. I’ve maintained a good level of activity and exercise – cycling, walking, Youtube videos – in spite of not going to the gym since early March.

    Struggles:
    Cycling and walking has been less attractive as the weather has been wet and windy. England is just going back into “lockdown” again so the gym will close again just as I thought swimming would be an option when the weather was too wet for cycling. The government has given us an end date in early December but the reality could well be that the restrictions last well into the New Year.

    Good luck and stay safe.

    Name: Charlotte
    Age: 56
    Height: 5'11" (180cm)
    Maintenance range: 75kg (+/- 2.5 kg)

    Weight lost: 86kg to 80 kg (January-August 2012); 85 kg to 69 kg (October 2014 - March 2016); 88kg to present weight (May 2020 - now)
    maintained (i.e. was below 77.5 kg, and mostly below 75 kg) from February 2015-July 2017; was then put on a medication and gained 2 kg in a month; went on sabbatical (away from scales; lots of conference meals); hit (peri-)menopause and lost track of things except to note that I was steadily gaining and back to 85/86 kg.
    Lost to 81 kg at Easter 2020 (top of normal bmi for me), but then gained back to 88 kg in April/May (Easter egg binge; lock down closed the pool...).
    Average weight October 2014 - September 2015: 75.72 kg
    Average weight October 2015 - September 2016: 72.33 kg
    Average weight October 2016 - September 2017: 76.82 kg - monthly average at top of maintenance range (77 - 77.5 kg) for the first 10 months, then 79 kg in August and September
    Average weight October 2017 - March 2018: 80.90 kg

    Average weight recorded for November currently: 77.13 kg

    Still losing, with 2.5 kg to go, but now in my maintenance range. Since I have lost and gained before (see above) I really want to plan for maintenance this time, so thought I would join this thread now. (I hope that is OK.)
    After maintaining for a while at 75 kg, I may adjust my maintenance weight down to 72 kg (+/- 2.5), but I want to wait for a few months before making that decision.

    Success: Halloween didn't derail me even though I ate 2 cupcakes, 3 Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, a small Hershey bar, and super salty chicken w/rice soup.

    Struggles: My pouchy belly. I don't know why but I thought being at 123 pounds that I would have a flat belly--but that is far from the truth! I'd like to work on that but I'm not really sure how to go about doing it without exercising on the floor (which is just a no-go in my book) or going to a gym (which not only make me unhappy, I couldn't go back to my gym now even if I wanted to because of Covid.

    @Kaitie9399 - I have the same issue and have a bad neck so don't like crunches and sit ups. I found this and have been trying them:

    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/Struggles: Well, for going on a 6 day all inclusive vacation and not weighing for 2 weeks, I'll take a 0.3lb gain. Usually it's more like 4lbs. We had fun, but the weather was very rainy, more rain than we've ever seen in that area. I didn't come back with much of a tan 😢. Time to get back to my normal routine!

    Hope everyone has a great week.

    Success/Struggles: I missed this thread last week, but I found it today. Thanks for setting it up @beulah81!
    Last week my Sunday weight was low, but the rest of the days it was up and the trend is good so I'm not worried.  It was back to 113 this weekend which is about where I want it.  I've started a new job and it is a larger office with more people.  I was s little worried that there would be food temptations but so far it has been ok. There were donuts one day but I was able to work one in and one day a lady brought pumpkin bars. They were actually more tempting than the donuts but she also left copies of the recipe in the break room so I was able to figure out the calorie count. They were only 185 cals so I am thinking about making some over the holidays when the kids are here and I can share them.  Logging my food really helps me to know what I have room for and what I don't and I can see where I need to adjust if I want something I wasn't planning on.

    Yesterday I finally ran my Half Marathon that got postponed from the spring.  It went really well. I was a little disappointed because 4 of us missed a turn and ended up running 13.5 miles. But even so I had a PR, was first overall female masters and 2 female overall.  I was really proud of it. I'm planning to take this week as a recovery week so I may end up with more calories in than out this week,  but I am on the low end of my range so as long as I don't go crazy it will be ok.

    Success of the week: I think I finally hit the high weight on my journey through October and am slowly getting back to the middle of my range or maybe lower. Even more a success - I think if I have to raise my maintenance range just a bit, I probably will be ok with that.

    Struggle of the week: I think we've all been under a lot of stress. I know I have.

    Success for this week: Keeping myself recording my calories and plugging along with my health goals

    Struggles for this week: Eating out SO much this week. We're working on the house to it's easy to just go grab Chick-fil-a (3 times this week!!) or Taco Bell because we were just to tired to cook--but at least the scale stayed put and I really do watch house many calories I'm eating.

    Good luck next week everyone!

    Successes/Struggles:
    Now that we are in lockdown again there will be no eating out, not even a coffee and cake. I’m in a “bubble” with my mum but apart from that I’m not supposed to meet anyone indoors, and it’s too cold to meet outdoors for long. Sitting with a takeaway coffee on a park bench doesn’t appeal.
    I’m focusing on getting outdoors for exercise, cycling and walking – and gardening.

    Hang on in there, stay safe.

    Successes/Struggles: Forgot to log 2 days last week. That is both a success and struggle. Success: I didn't gain or lose. Struggle: Forgetting to log in the past meant losing my focus. It would be a couple days and then more and more missed days and before long I would be gaining again. This is just a hint to beware.

    Still losing, with 2.5 kg to go, but now in my maintenance range. Since I have lost and gained before (see above) I really want to plan for maintenance this time, so thought I would join this thread now. (I hope that is OK.)
    After maintaining for a while at 75 kg, I may adjust my maintenance weight down to 72 kg (+/- 2.5), but I want to wait for a few months before making that decision.

    Comment on this week:
    Today's weight is above my maintenance range, and I am not sure what is going on. Last week I was comfortably below 77 kg (weighing after exercise), but this week I have been a bit above). I am still eating at a deficit which is meant to have me losing 1 kg per month, though for the past two months I have actually lost ca. 1.5 kg per month. I ate bove this two weekends ago: is this a delayed response by my body? It is also possible that my body is adjusting to my upping my rowing for a November challenge. Over the weekend I rowed 13km and walked 9km, which was quite a lot, though my practice is to eat back my exercise calories. Tuesday is my rest day and the day I weigh without exercising. I might be down again tomorrow after my rest day. We'll see...

    On the plus side, my averages are still in my maintenance range, albeit towards the top.
