    Reflections: it’s certainly not been easy to lose just a couple of pounds, but I’m - in general - more in control of my eating/tracking again! A week of cooler weather saw a drop. Hot weather next week, but eventually Fall will be here!

    More fatigued than usual- my doc took sept off, but I’ll see him first week Oct. I’m making a list :)

    This is by far the best I have ever done with maintenance in my entire life!!!!

    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 of the week: My average weight for the week is finally back within my range again, with two weigh-ins in the mid-111's! I haven't done anything differently, so it might be that it dropped with the onset of cooler weather recently.

    Success/Struggle: Getting close to the bottom of goal range. Nothing to fret about but something to keep my eye on. My weight doesn't move much so I have a small weight range. I'm surprise that the weight isn't going up since I have been eating more and doing less yardwork. We got much needed rain this weekend!

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

    Maintenance range: narrow 75kg (+/- 1kg); wide 75kg (+/- 2.5kg)

    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 January 2021: 76.06 kg
    Average weight recorded for February 2021: 76.91 kg
    Average weight recorded for March 2021: 75.38 kg
    Average weight recorded for April 2021: 74.90 kg
    Average weight recorded for May 2021: 75.02 kg
    Average weight recorded for June 2021: 75.36 kg
    Average weight recorded for July 2021: 76.41 kg
    Average weight recorded for August 2021: 75.96 kg

    Weight / seven day rolling average:
    7 September: 77.0 kg (168 lb) / rolling 7-day average 76.79 kg
    14 September: 77.7 kg (171 lb) / rolling 7-day average 77.36 kg
    21 September: 77.7kg (172 lb) / rolling 7-day average 77.91 kg
    28 September:

    Average weight recorded for September 2021 currently: 77.35 kg

    Reflection: My weight seems to be all over the place at present, but the trend is definitely up, and hovering above my wider maintenance range. As well as my diet not being great, my sleep has been a bit interrupted and although I am working out most days, I haven't been walking. It's also a stressful time of year at work with the beginning of the academic year. I'm still comfortably within normal bmi so have decided not to beat myself up about this, but to get through the next few weeks and see where I am. I am really noticing and enjoying the muscles I've devloped over the last few months and my abs are quite defined, so this is not simply a slide.

    Reflection: I am starting to trend up which is concerning. I am aware I have been eating more calories and have tried to compensate with more exercise but it is not yielding the results. I will be more diligent in getting at least 5 freggies every day, 8 glasses of water or more, consistent exercise and leave the potato chips at the store!

    Reflection: It looks like I am maintaining at about 78kg at present. It's not quite where I want to be but I'm not going to try to do anything about this until I am back in Scotland next month. I am exercising regularly (thanks to BodyFit by Amy!) and my basic diet is good. What I need to do is to cut back on chocolate and wine and that will happen once I am back in Scotland and not being plied with goodies by my husband.

    Success/Struggle: I forgot to do my weekly update here yesterday. Sort of what it looked like all last week. I plan my day every day and then stuff happens. I missed two of my exercise videos last week. That isn't good. I didn't always logged what I ate until the next day. I hope I remembered everything. I don't feel it is a losing focus thing but more just a crazy schedule thing. This week isn't looking much better but I'll keep trying.
