    Still losing, now with around 1 kg to go, and in my maintenance range since late October. Since I have lost and gained before (see above) I really want to plan for maintenance this time; hence joining this thread. After maintaining for a while at 75 kg, I may adjust my maintenance weight down to 72 kg (+/- 2.5), but I want to reach 75kg and maintain for a few months before making that decision.

    Comment on this week:
    Still hovering around 76kg... I am really looking forward to being able to say that I am hovering around 75.5 kg!
    I am not surprised my weigh-in this week up a bit, as we ate takeaway on Thursday and Friday: my first non-home cooked meals since I travelled back to Germany at the end of June. We ate well over the weekend too. I would still like to be below 75.5kg before Christmas. We'll see...

    Success(es)/struggle(s) of the week: Well, my weight is still up a bit, unfortunately. I did have a few meals from restaurants which probably didn't help with that. On the other hand, this week has been a pretty good workout week. I've basically been putting minimal effort into most workouts and have maybe one good workout day here and there, but I had three good workout days this week.
  • OrphiaOrphia Member Posts: 7,014 Member Member Posts: 7,014 Member
    @kristen8000 Yes, I figure that if you're confident you can lose it again, you can eat a bit more at Christmas. That's how we got where we longterm maintainers are. That's also something the beginners need to learn how to do. :smile:

    @mtaratoot Haha, yes, I've been cooking nice food, which is good, and can be bad when it comes to the scale. :smile:

    Height: 176 cm
    Heaviest weight: 98.9 kg
    Total Weight lost: 35 kg
    Time it took to lose: 12 months
    How long in maintenance: Since April 2016 - but gained 10 kg March-May 2020 after massive trauma combined with COVID-19.
    Maintenance weight range: 65-75 kg (not sure what’s the right answer - been up and down in there numerous times in my life, apart from going way over 2010-2015).
    I’d like to lose a bit to get back to 70 kg, but I’m still happy at around 75 kg.

    I’m experimenting with seeing how my satiety levels are in relation to the types of foods I eat. Trying to eat more whole foods, which I’ve been getting pretty good at, and less sugar, and it’s going quite well.

    Weekly averages checking day for me is Sunday.

    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

    December 28 - Jan 3 .........



    Success of the week: Even though I am cooking some really delicious food, am returning a little focus on moderating my weight back to where it should be. I also have realized I can give myself permission to luff for the next eleven days so my focus will be more of a "soft focus," and I can have a little joy in my crazy life.

    Struggle of the week: I am cooking some really delicious food. And AFTER I made fresh whole wheat buttermilk biscuits yesterday, I found my neighbors had left me a really tasty cake on my porch. Don't worry. It won't bother me for much longer.

    Success/Struggles: Weight was good again this week.  My hip is feeling better and I am running again.  I am taking it kind of easy though and I have reduced my mileage from what it was. I got out for a "long" run today. It was just 6.5 miles, but it felt good and it was a beautiful day.  I am planning to enjoy the holiday and not worry too much about what I eat. We'll see how the scale responds next weekend,  but since I am at the low end of my range I'm not concerned about it.

    Dec 28th:

    Successes/struggles:
    I don’t know where this morning’s spike came from – my weight has been 48.5 or less for two weeks now. However, I expect it will be short-lived and anyway, I’m at the bottom of my maintenance range so no worries.

    We are lucky to be in an area denoted “tier 2” so we can eat out and go shopping and meet one or two others outdoors. I met with my daughter and her kids today at a garden centre for an hour or two. But January isn’t looking good.
    Best wishes to all, stay safe.

    Still losing, now with around 1 kg to go, and in my maintenance range since late October. Since I have lost and gained before (see above) I really want to plan for maintenance this time; hence joining this thread. After maintaining for a while at 75 kg, I may adjust my maintenance weight down to 72 kg (+/- 2.5), but I want to reach 75kg and maintain for a few months before making that decision.

    Comment on this week:
    I had one weigh-in at 75.2kg this week, which is tantalisingly close to my 75kg goal! If it were not for Christmas between now and my next weigh-in, I would say that I would have a chance of reaching (as in weighing-in at) my goal weight by the end of the year. As it is, it seems a little unlikely, but I really think that I should get there in January.

    Total Weight lost: 35 kg
    Time it took to lose: 12 months
    How long in maintenance: Since April 2016 - but gained 10 kg March-May 2020 after massive trauma combined with COVID-19.
    Maintenance weight range: 65-75 kg (not sure what’s the right answer - been up and down in there numerous times in my life, apart from going way over 2010-2015).
    I’d like to lose a bit to get back to 70 kg, but I’m still happy at around 75 kg.

    I’m experimenting with seeing how my satiety levels are in relation to the types of foods I eat. Trying to eat more whole foods, which I’ve been getting pretty good at, and less sugar, and it’s going quite well.

    Weekly averages checking day for me is Sunday.

    Successes/Struggles:
    Same as last week – doing my exercises to help my hip. Just did another 3 km walk/run, and my hip feels stronger.
    Feeling more positive about things, and I know the holiday season increase of water weight, extra food, etc will pass.

    Success(es)/struggle(s) of the week: My weight is still a bit on the high side, though still within range, from all the food I've eaten the past couple of days. I plan to go all out for New Year's as well, so my weight might go up a bit more. After next week, I'll tamp down a bit on the indulgences and start cooking more stuff myself again instead of ordering out so much.

    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

    Height: 5'11"
    Total weight lost: 20 pounds
    Time it took to lose: 2 months
    How long in maintenance: 1 year and 2 months!
    Starting Weight: 164.8 (September 3rd, 2019)
    Goal Weight: 150 (Hit November 8th, 2019)
    Maintenance weight range: 147 - 153

    Average weight recorded for September: 160.1
    Average weight recorded for October: 154.0

    December 27th: 149.3 (Trend Weight: 149.3)

    Successes/Struggles: Well, I made my goal of staying under 150 until the end of the year. 2020 was an interesting year to choose to maintain my weight, but I did it! My averages have been below 150 for more than a year, I only missed 2 Sunday weigh ins all year and never saw even close to 153 on the scale. Even though 2020 brought many changes and uncertainties, I surprised myself. Most of the year I spent under my maintenance range. I'm calling that success!

    I hope everyone has a great 2021! See you all back here next Sunday!

    Hope everyone has a great week!

    Success of the week: Made the best batch of whole wheat buttermilk biscuits I've made in a long, long time. Experimented with sourdough and made a nice, sour batch of baguettes with crispy crust. The starter came when I tried to proof some really OLD yeast, and it smelled like butyric acid and I just fed it and let it grow for a week. Now I'm hooked.

    Struggle of the week: Biscuits, sourdough baguettes, and fresh whole wheat caraway rye. Good stuff but.... Come on 2021!
