    Name: Kathryn
    Height: 5'3.5"
    Total Weight lost: ~73 lbs (I dropped about 13 lbs below original goal)
    Time it took to lose: 10 months (to original goal of 135)
    How long in maintenance: I called maintenance in July 2016, but I have continued to slowly lose so I'm not really sure.
    Maintenance weight range: 120 - 125 lbs

    Average weight recorded from January: 127.1
    Average weight recorded from February: 126.5
    Average weight recorded from March: 126.2
    Average weight recorded from April: 124.9
    Average weight recorded from May: 124.9
    Average weight recorded from June: 122.8
    Average weight recorded from July: 122.1
    Average weight recorded from August: 122.5


    Week of...
    4th September: 121.2 scale/ 122.1 trend
    11th September: 119.6 scale/ 121.9 trend
    18th September: 121.2 scale/ 121.6 trend
    25th September:

    Success/struggles of the week: I had several days last week a little under range, but my trend has stayed in range and the weight was up a bit since the weekend. It is still kind of hard to get my mindset away from losing. I know that my weight being up a little this week from last week is just normal fluctuations, but it is hard to stop wanting to see it always going down. I do think I am right where I need to be though.

    Does anyone know why sometimes your comment has to be approved before it is posted? That happened to me last week when I posted in this thread and happened again this morning. I assume that it will eventually post, just curious about why it would need to be approved first.

    Success/struggles of the week:

    Success: I’ve finally got more of a handle on maintenance and figured out the range I want to/am able to maintain.

    Struggles: Meeting my protein goals. Lately I’ve been craving bread hardcore. I don’t generally carb restrict but I’ve noticed my intake getting higher and higher and my cravings getting stronger and stronger.

    I've read that there are certain numbers that trigger an approval. Not sure why, but I think "1 1 9" is one of them.

    Thanks! That's weird, but I guess as long as it eventually posts.

    19th September:

    I' m changing my weigh-ins to Tuesdays because it's more suitable.

    Success/struggles of the week:
    - I lost my Fitbit charger and only found it the night before. However I think that I was active enough, at least it felt like I was or my body could be fibbing.
    - I eat like a pig during the week. I didn't care. But by Friday I mentally and physically felt ready to start. So I didn't wait until Monday to begin my mindful and sensible eating.
    - I'm averaging way to high and must bring my average down. I am scared of gaining back too much weight. And I'm actually happy with the way I look and feel so I'd like to keep it this way.

    September 11: 113.3
    September 19: 112.8

    Struggles: I am struggling to controls the lickers bites and nibbles.
    Successes: I did my long run on Sunday, but it was split in two (outside then home on treadmill due to child care needs so that was pretty weird. Even though I am supposed to drop the mileage this week, I think I will do the sMe long run salsa week just to see that it can be done. I am changing weigh in to mid week or maybe Friday as I seem I have a build up of water/ glucose on mondays due o the longer runs.
    Upcoming week plan: stick to the running training schedule and push myself in the mornings during the weight session. Keep an eye on my nibbles. No sliding back to old habits.

    @macchiatto in happy scale, on you summary page, trend weight should be on the top at the left. However, you might have to configure that in settings.

    @macchiatto there is a wheel in the top section of your summary page. Hit that and you can turn on trend weight there.

    Similar question, but for Libra app, is there a way to see monthly average weight on it? It shows current trend, but i can't seem to see monthly average.

    Libra-There is a database log in the top right corner. It shows a running trend but I'm not sure of the time frame. It doesn't seem to change even when you change the setting for smoothing days.

    For this thread. I add together the weights listed for the month and divide by the number of logins listed. Either 4 or 5. This is the old fashioned way of calculating a mathematical "average' (which is slightly different from a trend or rolling average.)

    Thank you, Lori. For a couple of months i did the same to figure out the average, but i weigh every day, so not feeling like adding 30 numbers anymore I don't think libra calculates that

    For this thread, I don't add up 30 weights, just the 4-5 that I log in this thread each week.
