    Successes/struggles:
    I expect my weight to bounce up and down for a few days, I’ll give it a week or two before I assess the Christmas effect.
    I had a very quiet Christmas and it’s looking like a very quiet start to 2021. We are in “tier 3” now so very limited socialising, cafes and restaurants take-away only, etc etc.

    Roll on 2021 - surely must be better than 2020?

    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 weighed in at 75.0kg two days ago, much to my surprise. Given our Christmas celebrations, I am please that I have bascialyl maintained this week. I am going to continue eating at a deficit until my monthly average weight is coming in below 75.5kg, but that should be next month.

    My weight chart is starting to look like a maintenance chart. though:

    Age: 53
    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.

    Successes/Struggles:
    I haven't run for 2 weeks Must remedy that. Get caught in a vicious circle of being depressed because I don't run so I don't run.
    Been doing my physio exercises more, though.
