    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 145 - 150
    Absolutely 143-153

    (Updated goals up a few pounds versus the last couple years, 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 2021 (12 months): 153.4

    Average weight recorded from December 2021: 150.4


    Average weight Week of...

    Dec 27 - Jan 2 ................. 152.0
    Jan 3 - 9 ........................... 151.2
    Jan 10 - 16 .......................
    Jan 17 - 23 .......................
    Jan 24 - 30 ......................
    Jan 31 - Feb 6 ..................


    Success of the week: It seems my morning bike commute is a little tiny bit faster. I still won't get to see the sunrise until after about mid-February, although I'll start to see twilight soon. But then in mid-March the sun will rise an hour earlier when we do that stupid thing with the clock, and then I won't see sunrise again on my bike commute until mid-April.

    Struggle of the week: Lost a friend that I've known for over 40 years. His wake is today; I did not travel to the other side of the continent, but I did send a bunch of stories.

    Successes/struggles of the week: My weight was all over the place this week, hitting a low of 109.8 at the beginning of the week, to a high of 113.2 at the end of the week, after a couple of days of nice takeout dinners plus ramen, sushi, and pho all in one day. Still averaged out to about the same as the past two weeks. My boyfriend and I braved the cold and went on a hike yesterday, so I got a good amount of steps in then.

    Successes/struggles of the week: Finally getting past weekend high water fluctuations. Joined a cheap gym for the single digit or snowy/icy days for running and it’s been working well! I can only go after the kids are asleep, but it’s close and makes getting in and out quick and easy. Feeling good!

    Struggle/Success: I record my weight once a week on Monday though I weigh myself daily. Glad last Thursday wasn't weigh-in day. I was up to 117. The next day it was 115. It's like the stock market with daily fluctuations. Actually, the higher number helped me to really focus on eating right. The Christmas season got me into some bad habits.
