    Success/Struggle: My weight was going back down at the beginning last week but then we received some meal kits (Green Chef). They were very good but though I didn't actually count calories, I know they were high. I have one more tomorrow and that is Vegetable Beef Soup so shouldn't be too bad.

    Biggest struggle: This month my choice of foods is more and more carbs, especially bread. I also notice in myself a general “taking it for granted” attitude that I am thin so I can eat whatever.

    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 recorded from January 2022: 151.8
    Average weight recorded from February 2022: 152.9


    Average weight Week of...

    Feb 28 - Mar 6 ................. 152.5
    Mar 7 - 13 ......................... 151.2
    Mar 14 - 20 ....................... 151.1
    Mar 21 - 27 ....................... 150.3
    Mar 28 - Apr 6 .................



    Success of the week: My average weight is practically back to my ideal maintenance range. It has been in my absolute maintenance range all month, but I will probably end the month with a monthly average still above the ideal range. That's OK. The trend is still good.


    Struggle of the week: It looks like I will fall short of my quarterly mileage goal.

    Name: missperfectpitch
    Height: 5'4"
    Total weight lost: About 43 pounds
    Time it took to lose: 1 year and 2 months
    How long in maintenance: I hit my goal weight in the beginning of January 2018, but officially started maintenance in mid-March 2018 after figuring out my calories for a couple of months.
    Maintenance weight range: 108-112.5

    Average weight recorded for 2018: 109.8
    Average weight recorded for 2019: 111.2
    Average weight recorded for 2020: 111.6
    Average weight recorded for 2021: 112.5

    Average weight recorded for June: 113.1
    Average weight recorded for July: 113.8
    Average weight recorded for August: 113.6
    Average weight recorded for September: 113
    Average weight recorded for October: 112.6
    Average weight recorded for November:112.7
    Average weight recorded for December: 112.2
    Average weight recorded for January: 111.9
    Average weight recorded for February: 112.3

    Week ending:
    Mar 5: 111.5 (trending 111.8)
    Mar 12: 111.3 (trending 111.6)
    Mar 19: 111.8 (trending 111.7)
    Mar 26: 111.4 (trending 111.6)

    Successes/struggles of the week: Ended the week in the mid 111's, which isn't bad, though I'd still ideally like to get back down to the mid 110's again. I've been pretty unmotivated for the past several months with my workouts and getting my steps in (just managing to do both, but not putting in much effort into either). Doing the bare minimum, but hoping that I'll get motivated again.

    Struggles/Successes
    • Sunday was Mother’s Day in UK, and my family were also celebrating the 25th birthday of my grandson. I took a pass day, and had a small uptick.
    My weight dropped back down again today.
    • I had begun to get lax with my fat intake, so have been monitoring that to keep within 2% of my daily fat goal.
    • I have restarted some activities which were curtailed during lockdown, so have changed my exercise schedule to fit in with those. (I am a volunteer leader for several groups for a lifelong learning charity)
