    Age: 51
    Height: 6'
    Total weight lost: ~55 lbs
    Time it took to lose: 8 months
    How long in maintenance: Since ~ December 2018
    Maintenance weight range: 165-170

    Average weight recorded for December:165.8
    Average weight recorded for January: 167.3
    Average weight recorded for February: 167.2

    Average weight recorded for June: 160.9
    Average weight recorded for July: 160.5
    Average weight recorded for August: 160.9

    Week of...
    September 1st:162.3 (trend 161.7)
    September 8th: 160.4 (trend 161.3)
    September 15th: 160.4 (trend 161.3)

    Success(es)/struggle(s) of the week: While I'd prefer that the trend be visibly higher, I suspect that it's understated due to being a bit dehydrated over the last several days. Still aiming to move up to the bottom of range in a month or so (though Libra's telling me it'll happen in time for New Year's Eve :p ). There were some challenges on the sleep and strength training front, but hopefully this week will be an easier one.

    Have a great week, everyone!

    Success(es)/struggle(s) of the week:
    Successes: Got through my first trail run. An outlier high weight (timing can really effect this especially with night shifts and trying to do stuff during the day.) really drove up the average but i suspect it's going down as a whole.


    Struggles: Had some GI issues during the run so it didnt work out as well as I hoped.

    Success(es)/struggle(s) of the week: Weight up slightly which frankly I am a little bit surprised about. I have up my walking averaging over 5.5 miles a day which is all on top of my normal daily normal steps that I don't count at all. I was given a extra duty at work which has me up and moving every 30 minutes so I'm not sitting like I used to. We will see what this next week brings. I will have to be extra watchful as 3 meals out this coming week. Have a great week my friends.

    @pkweier - looks like you are smack in the middle of your maintenance range. Enjoy the meals out! You've been really successful. Congrats on getting a work assignment that includes moving more!

    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: 142 - 148 (and not sure that's the right answer)

    Average weight recorded from 2017 (12 months): 163.8
    Average weight recorded from 2018 (12 months): 150.7

    Average weight recorded from January: 148.4

    Average weight recorded from May: 144.1

    Average weight recorded from July: 146.5
    Average weight recorded from August: 145.8

    Average weight Week of...
    September 2 - 8: 145.3
    September 9 - 15: 144.0
    September 16 - 22: 142.7
    September 23 - 29:
    September 30 - October 6:

    Success of the week: I have had a slow, steady decline back to my goal weight, and I have certainly stayed in range. Weekly average is just below goal, but still in range. My ten-day average is still a little higher still; it's moderating. But even more than this, I had a bit of an epiphany this week. I was at work, and I had eaten a small lunch. Not too long after that, I really wanted to eat. A lot. But I also recognized I wasn't actually hungry. I was sated. But let me tell you I sure wanted to eat. There was some junk food out in the common area, so it would have been easy. I actually did have a taste, but that's ok. The real success was recognizing what was going on in my head, to observe it, and move on. Is this a watershed moment? The next weeks and months will tell.

    Struggle of the week: Not physical health or weight related, but the storms we've been having took out several of my large sunflowers, and all the tomatoes are going to rot. And that thing I wrote above about wanting to EAT ALL THE FOOD.

    @pkweier
    First of all congratulations on your significant weight loss and Maintenance accomplishments!!

    I calculate your September monthly average as 132.1 (lower or equal to the previous 6 months.) Amazing!!

    You are so inspiring!

    My maintenance weight might be “finding me.” We’ll see! Watching carefully. I keep creeping up verrry slightly...
    Hoping by 6-month mark of Oct 25, I’ve definitely stopped it & sloping down slowly. Taking a very long view, ie, rest of my life.

    Sept 22: 156.6 Trend: 156.1
    Sept 29:

    Success(es): My average weight for September is less than August’s. Finally. First time since Feb 2019.

    It took cooler temps, more water, and reduced calories 😉 and less weight lifting.
    🙁

    So the heat is back & I’m heading back to the workouts. We’ll see what happens.

    Struggles: fatigue, shin splints, ankle swelling, aching feet, fingers, hip. All sudden & inexplicable...

    Thoughts: Once I get solidly back to 155, I will shift my maintenance Range to 155-157. If I can’t get back to 155 with the weightlifting, I’ll figure it out.

    Have a great week!

    September 22nd: 160.4 (trend 161.1)

    Success(es)/struggle(s) of the week: I think this is the first time that I've been so consistent from week to week; annoyingly, it's when I'm trying to get back up to range. Several times this week I've found myself trying to catch up on calories before bed after a long day at work. It's the opposite challenge that many face at work - I end up getting a lot more steps with fewer opportunities to sit and eat. I've only gotten in two days of strength training in the last couple of weeks as well. On the bright side, my bank balance has appreciated the overtime.

    Have a great week, everyone!

    Sept 16 th, on holiday, no scales
    Sept 23rd, still on holiday.
    We fly home tomorrow, the two weeks away have been great. We have been out cycling every day except one, and been to the beach or pool every day except one when it rained. There were two occasions when it was too windy to go in the sea, (the sea was rough and it's a quiet beach without lifeguards). Apart from those days I've managed about 45 minutes swimming each day on top of a couple of hours cycling. So I've had lots of exercise to balance the food and drink intake. However, week 2 included our two birthdays, so we had extra treats and the cake and ice creams have become regular treats in the last few days.
    I was underweight by a pound or two before I went away, so I'm not worrying about the weigh in next week, just enjoying the last day.

    Successes:


    Struggles: Clothes. I have no shirts I can work out in any more. I mean it's a good problem to have I guess, but man it still stinks. Might have to try to buy my first size small, though I worry about feeling exposed in tight shirts. I dont know my real size anymore. j4ahlm8m1285.jpg Shirt on the right is a medium. Is it too big?

    I ran into (pun intended) this problem as well. My solution was the thrift store. I was a little amazed to find lots of high quality running- or workout-type apparel there for pennies on the dollar, which allowed me to see what sizes work best.
