    Success/Struggle: I know that I posted last week but can't find it. It wasn't a very good week so it is okay to have forgotten. This week was better though my weight is up a bit. Usually, my weight is very stable - very little fluctuating. This week I was up 1 1/2 lb one day and then down 2 lb the next. I have no idea why. Maybe it is the scale. 😊

    Success of the week: Extra relaxation. I took off one day so I could have five off in a row.

    Struggle of the week: Scale is "stuck" again. It may be maintenance, but it's not at the level that I would call success.

    Something is wonky with the line spacing now that they've made "improvements" around here. Sorry for all the extra white space in my post. I'll see if I can fix that next week.

    Successes/struggles:
    My DiL is having a tough time with the children so I went up and stayed over a couple of nights, had less exercise and more calories than I had planned. However, weight has stayed just under 50.5 kg all week. So, easily within my maintenance range.
    I’m away on holiday for a fortnight later this month so had hoped to be under 50 kg before flying. Not to worry, the holiday will be fairly active.

    Success of the week: Extra relaxation. I can say for sure I'm maintaining my current weight, and I am within a revised maintenance range I set for myself.

    Struggle of the week: Still not back to my goal, and didn't bike commute this week because of all the giant piles of wet leaves - frosty a couple mornings.

    Successes/struggles of the week: Not a successful week weight-wise, but that's my fault as I ate out at a couple of restaurants with pretty high-sodium/carb foods on Wednesday and Friday and my body didn't have a chance to get rid of the water weight (it usually takes 5-7 days to go back down).

    Success: I got my weight down below 50 kg by the end of last week – ready for my holiday.

    Struggles: None related to food or weight. However, I’m not on holiday – long story see below – which is a shame as I think it would have been good for my mental health. However, if the last 2 years of heartache and grief have taught me anything it’s to go forward, look for the positives and not to dwell on the might-have-beens.

    Here’s the story should you care to read it
    We had a fortnight holiday booked in Lanzarote – in an all-inclusive hotel. However, my boyfriend/partner hates flying and it’s been over two years since we last flew anywhere. We were going abroad 3 or even 4 times a year. He didn’t like it but he did manage to get on the plane. This time he realised that we were probably going to be on a Boeing Max (the plane that had two disastrous accidents a couple of years ago) and it just completely took him out. He was getting more and more anxious, he told me a few weeks ago that he was worried and didn’t know if he could do it.
    So yesterday we made the journey to the airport and booked into the hotel. He was in a real state but was torn about the whole issue. This morning we got up early (5 am) had breakfast and walked up to the airport. We got to the front of the check in queue and he couldn’t go though with it.
    We then had a tedious long cold wait around the airport to catch a return bus. Finally got home about noon. So, I shall be home now not away on holiday. (I didn’t want to go on my own)

    If it were me, I would have kissed him goodbye and got on the plane. He could, if he wanted, rebook on another flight that was with different equipment. Or he could have stayed home and done chores while you relaxed in the islands.
