    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.

    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 recorded from March 2021: 153.0

    Average weight Week of...
    March 29 - April 4 ..... 153.3
    April 5 - 11 ................
    April 12 - 18 ..............
    April 19 - 25 ..............
    April 26 - May 2 .........

    Success of the week: Realizing that I really have stopped the slow gain from October through February and started working my way back down. Two pounds in March is a healthy rate to get back in my maintenance range.

    Struggle of the week: Two words: Potato chips.

    @GregInORL - I'm so impressed! I can't imagine packing that much running in one week's time. I'm happy when I get 20 miles in.

    Success: Stayed at goal. Ate a small pizza myself. My son and wife came over and with my husband, we ordered pizza and ate it on the deck. We are all fully vaccinated except my son who had his second shot but is in his two week waiting period to be "fully." I have to have gluten free pizza so it was all for me. :)

    Struggle: I was very hungry one afternoon and had some tortilla chips. It worked. I felt much better so it was real hunger, not "I want to eat" feeling. It is a struggle for me to tell the difference.

    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...).

    Struggles: 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...

    Successes/struggles of the week: I had a pretty low-calorie week for the majority of the week, and managed to save enough calories to order Chinese food on Thursday, sushi yesterday, and some French food with desserts today. The weather has been rainy lately, so unfortunately, I didn't fit in a hike this week and just had to get my daily steps in by walking inside my place.

    Successes:
    I am taking the next step to make maintenance easier.
    I did NOT over-react when scale went up a bit.
    I am giving myself the time to figure this out.

    Struggles: ya know - all the stuff we are all going through
    + an ocular migraine & fatigue: better now!

    I re-learned that when I am in pain or sick, I EAT. That mostly accounts for the uptick this week.
    Theories I have: uncomfortable so I eat, think I need food to be more energetic, mis-directed self-care. Luckily I’m rarely in pain or sick, but I have added this as an area to problem-solve down the road. Ticking them off, one by one, never giving up.

    We are warriors. Really.❤️ If you are on MFP, you are a strong fighter. Have a great week.

    Colder weather is here, which, combined with Easter chocolate has meant some gains.
    Still logging, of course, as knowing the trend is useful.

    MadisonMolly, I like your use of the term, "mouth hunger". I get that especially after I start eating when tired, and then it can be hard to stop.

    Successes/struggles:

    Weight-wise I’m OK, the scale has been over 48 kg all week. Spiked at 48.9 on Friday but has come down since then. I’m home now for a while – exhausted by the emotional turmoil of the last few weeks an the frequent travelling up and down the motorway.
