    Struggle/Success: Cyclical eating! This past week has been a blowout for me so much so that I didn't want to weigh or post today (sigh). Did not keep steps up, missed so many days of yoga. The weather is changing, days shortening, heading out of summer :-(

    @figurethefat
    But please note that you DID post! Hooray!!

    We all respond to weather changes differently. I’m sorry that it’s not a season you enjoy as much. I’m the opposite - love when summer ends as I don’t do well with heat.

    I wonder if there’s something g each of us can do yo make our less-enjoyed season be a happier time for us?

    Average weight Week ending...
    March 6: 163.8
    March 13: 160.2 !!!

    Success: Logged everyday, including last weekend to which I 100% owe the drop in poundage this week. It's making me think that maybe I should keep this up and think about intentionally eating at a 250 calorie deficit to drop another 10 pounds.
    Struggles: Resisting the temptation to rest on my laurels and indulge myself - especially after an intense workout.

    Name: Orphia
    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.

    Name: Charlotte
    Age: 57
    Height: 5'11" (180cm)

    Maintenance range: 75kg (+/- 2.5 kg) - but we'll see, maybe a bit lower.

    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 mostly within maintenance range (74.82 - 77.86 kg) for the first 10 months, then >79 kg in August and September
    Average weight October 2017 - March 2018: 80.90 kg
    April 2018-April 2020: no data

    23 March:

    Average weight recorded for March 2021 currently: 75.58 kg

    Successes: This is definitely moving towards where I want to be. I am hoping to have my monthly average below 75.5 kg by the end of the month.

    Reflection: The challenge will be to maintain this. And I'd still like to shift a bit more of that lower belly bulge!

    Another roller-coaster week. My son was taken to hospital last Tuesday after a fall and he is still there. Hoping to have him home soon but he will be virtually bed-bound and very weak. I’m afraid we don’t have much more time with him.

    Lesley, i am so sorry. I hope you can find ways to cherish the time you still have together and then to say goodbye well.
