edited December 2016 in Goal: Maintaining Weight
Hi everyone!!!

Throughout my weightloss endeavour I took part in the monthly weightloss challenge. That used to give me a place where I can report back the positives and negatives of my week. And since hitting maintenance I miss all that. It was nice to share the good and bad.

The aim of this thread is to have a weekly weigh-in check for some accountability or support. I don't know if anybody would like to join me here. But I wanted to start something similar for the maintainers.

    Nice idea! Sure I'll be a couple lbs up but still in range so it'll be interesting to see where I'll be end of January.

    So lowest recorded or average weight of each week?

    Great!! I'll be posting my first filled form on the morning of 2nd January. I only in weigh myself once a week. But daily weighers can take their weekly average.

    I'm a daily weigher but only 'count' my Thursday weigh-ins, so I'll be posting my updates on Thursdays :)

    eta: OP-I've been in maintenance for almost 4 years now but I just started a short weight loss period last week, to lose a few vanity pounds. Do you mind if I still participate since I consider myself still in maintenance?

    @crzycatlady1 no not at all. I think we need long term maintainers for inspiration too. Also, I'm sure that some of us at some point would also like to lose some more weight for vanity whilst still being in maintenance weight range.

    It's total vanity lol-we may be going on a road trip for a week at the end of February and we'll be spending a lot of time in pools :p

    I would love to join once I get BACK to maintenance.. I flunked it the first time never having been there before.. But well on the way back to GW so will def come back when I get back to maintenance again - great idea to continue the support, specially when you make that transition from loss to maintenance and don't know what you're doing LOL..

    I'll join. I'm pretty new to maintenance. I have found it to be more difficult than expected. I actually went about 7 pounds below my original goal. I think having a group like this might help.

    Name: Kathryn
    SW:195
    CW:128
    GW: was 135
    Total Weight lost: 67 lbs
    Time it took to lose: 10 months to original goal + lost for about 5 months after reaching that goal.
    How long in maintenance: 5 months ?
    Maintenance weight range: 126 - 130

    It is nice (?) to know I am not alone in continuing to lose once hitting maintenance. Have finally hit my happy place.

    Here's my contribution:

    GW: 175# then 165# & finally 160#
    SW: 196#
    CW: 160#
    Weight Lost: 36#
    Time it took: 5 months
    Time in Maintenance: 1 month
    Desired range: 158-162#

    I will report my progress at end of Jan 2017.

    I think that weekly reports are too frequent but, if there's anything meaningful to report in the interim, I will.
