    Hi! My name is Kristen. And I struggle to maintain my weight. I had an amazing 2020, weight maintenance wise, and I'm hoping to keep up with it in 2021.

    Age: 42
    Sex: Female
    Height: 5'11"
    Total weight lost: 20 pounds
    Time it took to lose: 2 months
    How long in maintenance: 1 year and 3 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
    Average weight recorded for November: 149.2
    Average weight recorded for December: 146.4
    Average weight recorded for January: 145.4
    Average weight recorded for February: 143.4
    Average weight recorded for March:

    Average weight recorded for 2020: 146 😁

    Week of...
    January 3rd: 151.2 (Trend: 150.5)

    Successes/Struggles: It's time to make some changes and get that number down a bit. Had a great December (even if it came with the normal Covid-19 restriction challenges). But that also came with some pretty uncontrolled eating and drinking!

    I'm proud of my results from 2020. Can't remember a time when I stayed in the 140s for an entire year!

    New goal for the near future, get down to 147 by February 27th!

    Hope everyone has a great week!

    Success(es)/struggle(s) of the week: Some reflections on this past year of maintenance - overall, my average weight for 2020 was 111.6 lb, up from 111.2 lb for 2019. Not a huge variation, but I did struggle in 2020 with maintaining (which I hadn't really had an issue with since mid-2018 when I first entered maintenance). The weirdness of 2020 definitely messed with things quite a bit, as I started working from home indefinitely in the middle of March and continue to do so now. I ate at basically the same calorie level, though perhaps a bit more with starting to do a lot more takeout v. home-cooked meals to support restaurants, but my activity level was slightly less than it used to be (not going into the office meant more time lying around on the sofa while working instead of standing up for a good part of the day, not walking up and down several flights of stairs and a hilly road every day while going into the office, less fidgeting, etc.). I also have not been very motivated when doing workouts this past year, so I was usually not putting in 100% effort into workouts. All small things, but they are things that do add up over time, and I did start to gain some weight during the spring/summer as a result.

    I've since made some modifications of increasing my daily step goal from 11k (my usual) ->13k, adding in a 20 minute "stairs workout" inside my apartment building once or twice a week, and adding an extra hundred or so calories into my calorie estimates for takeout meals. I managed to get back down to a better place in my maintenance range by November, though I did see a weight increase in December with my birthday and holidays etc., though this is true every year. I'm going to see where my weight is over the next couple of months to see whether I'll want to make an additional small adjustment - I prefer to be right in the middle of my range (~110-110.5), and my average is a bit higher than that right now.

    Success/Struggles: My weight is still up a bit from the holidays,  but still on the lower end of my range so it is good and nothing I am concerned about. It has started to come back down from where it was a day or two after Christmas and I would really like it to stay above 113. I say I have been maintaining since December 2017, but looking back I see that I have actually lost about 5 pounds since then so I guess I have been slowly losing these last 3 years. I would like to stay where I am so this year I am going to make an effort not to let my trend go any lower than 113.

    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...).

    26 Janary:

    Average weight recorded for January 2021 currently: 75.98 kg

    I have been in my maintenance range since late October, and hit my goal weight of 75kg just after Christmas, rather to my surprise. I plan to maintain for a while at 75 kg, and then perhaps adjust my maintenance weight down to 72 kg (+/- 2.5 kg).

    Successes/struggles: I need to start exercising again; I have not done anything since Christmas Eve except some long walks. It will be easier once we take the Christmas tree and decorations down and I have my inside exercise space back! I have also not been tracking my food for the last couple of weeks, but just trying to eat sensibly, watch portion sizes and not over-indulge in Christmas chocolates. That seems to have worked as my weight has stayed pretty stable over the holiday period.

    Struggle/Success: Getting through the holidays was a big relief. I am maintaining but I do want to push down to the 54-55kg range rather than 56-57 and what better time than the New Year. With regards to yoga I've got two sets to chose from - one longer, one shorter so there's no "excuse." If I can't fit in the longer routine which is best, I can just opt for the shorter and still feel like I've knocked it off.
