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

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

    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 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
    Average weight 22 May - 31 December 2020: 80.83 kg

    Average weight recorded for May 2020 (22.-31.5.2020): 87.15 kg
    Average weight recorded for June 2020: 85.31 kg
    Average weight recorded for July 2020: 83.12 kg
    Average weight recorded for August 2020: 81.07 kg
    Average weight recorded for September 2020: 79.59 kg
    Average weight recorded for October 2020: 77.81 kg
    Average weight recorded for November 2020: 76.67 kg
    Average weight recorded for December 2020: 75.93 kg
    Average weight recorded for January 2021: 76.06 kg
    Average weight recorded for February 2021: 76.91 kg

    Weight / seven day rolling average:
    2 March: 76.0 kg (168 lb) / rolling 7-day average 76.37 kg
    9 March: 75.5 kg (166 lb) / rolling 7-day average 75.80 kg
    16 March: 75.2 kg (166 lb) / rolling 7-day average 75.20 kg
    23 March: 74.5 kg (164 lb) / rolling 7-day average 75.21 kg
    30 March: 74.7 kg (164 lb) / rolling 7-day average 75.09 kg

    Average weight recorded for March 2021 currently: 75.38 kg

    Successes: Hovering just above 75 kg which is where I was hoping to be. I am going to try to lose anout 0.5 kg and maintain with my trending weight a bit below 75 kg.

    Struggles: Nothing particular: the challenge next week will be that we are out of Lent so I shall be drinking wine again and eating chocolate. Easter eggs were my downfall last year, so I will be thinking about my chocolate limits.

    Reflection: I have continuted my good routine of exercise combining BodyFit by Amy Athletic Club and rowing. April is focusing on abs. Still some lower belly bulge to lose...

    HEAVIEST weight: 175.4 in early 2013.
    Total Weight lost: 30 pounds
    Time it took to lose: ~6 months
    How long in maintenance: Since July 2018 -- but with some fluctuation outside of goal range.
    Maintenance weight range:
    Ideally 142 - 148
    Absolutely 140-150

    (and STILL not sure those are the right answers)


    Average weight recorded from 2017 (12 months): 163.8
    Average weight recorded from 2018 (12 months): 150.7
    Average weight recorded from 2019 (12 months): 144.8
    Average weight recorded from 2020 (12 months): 147.1

    Average weight recorded from December 2020: 150.9
    Average weight recorded from January 2021: 154.1 (!!!)
    Average weight recorded from February 2021: 154.8 (!!!)

    Average weight Week of...
    March 1 - 7 ............... 153.3
    March 15 - 21 ............. 153.5
    March 22 - 24 ............. 152.7
    March 25 - 28 ............. 152.2
    March 29 - April 4 ....... 153.3

    Success of the week: Even with several days of letting myself eat over maintenance, I ended the month without gaining an ounce, so to speak.

    Struggle of the week: Still a few pounds above the top of my maintenance range, and that elusive ultimate goal weight is ten pounds away.
