    I am in maintenance with a goal weight of 143 pounds and an allowable goal range of 140-150 pounds. I've was gaining slowly from October 1 until mid-November. My average weight peaked November 13, and it's been bouncing around since then; pretty flat but a little above goal.

    I am going to update once per week and report my ten-day average weight.

    December 28, 2018: Ten-day average 151.4

    September 28: Ten-day average 141.8
    October 28: Ten-day average 143.3
    November 28: Ten-day average 143.9
    December 28: Ten-day average 145.0

    Even though my weight has been pretty flat, my average weights were lower this time last month as well as two and three months ago. I'm still lower than a year ago by a fair bit.

    I am in maintenance with a goal weight of 143 pounds and an allowable goal range of 140-150 pounds. I've was gaining slowly from October 1 until mid-November. My average weight peaked November 13, and it's been bouncing around since then; pretty flat but a little above goal.

    I am going to update once per week and report my ten-day average weight.

    December 28, 2018: Ten-day average 151.4

    September 28: Ten-day average 141.8
    October 28: Ten-day average 143.3
    November 28: Ten-day average 143.9
    December 28: Ten-day average 145.0

    Even though my weight has been pretty flat, my average weights were lower this time last month as well as two and three months ago. I'm still lower than a year ago by a fair bit.

    My best time to lose weight is now until mid April. Going for it!

    With the decreased daylight length, is it possible you just aren't getting in as much routine movement? That could be a thing. Some of my bouncing around has been from WHAT I have been eating perhaps as much as how much. I splurged on a special plate the other day, but I didn't realize how damn salty that ham would be. Packed on some bloat, and it's kind of come back off. Sometimes it's also how much. Yesterday was an example, but I let it happen and don't feel I have to beat myself up about it.

    I am also giving myself some slack because that closer look at my average weight and one of my weighted moving average weights DID peak two weeks before Thanksgiving. The TrendWeight website seems to use a slightly different scale factor, and it suggests I'm actually up 0.2 pounds since November 13, but I think that is an insignificant amount not worth mentioning. So in the Season of Too Much Food (and comfort food no less), I'm still maintaining.

    It can't hurt to tighten back down if you feel you need to. Just be kind to yourself, and observe how your body responds.

    With the decreased daylight length, is it possible you just aren't getting in as much routine movement? That could be a thing. Some of my bouncing around has been from WHAT I have been eating perhaps as much as how much. I splurged on a special plate the other day, but I didn't realize how damn salty that ham would be. Packed on some bloat, and it's kind of come back off. Sometimes it's also how much. Yesterday was an example, but I let it happen and don't feel I have to beat myself up about it.

    I am also giving myself some slack because that closer look at my average weight and one of my weighted moving average weights DID peak two weeks before Thanksgiving. The TrendWeight website seems to use a slightly different scale factor, and it suggests I'm actually up 0.2 pounds since November 13, but I think that is an insignificant amount not worth mentioning. So in the Season of Too Much Food (and comfort food no less), I'm still maintaining.

    It can't hurt to tighten back down if you feel you need to. Just be kind to yourself, and observe how your body responds.

    Thank you again @mtaratoot
    Invaluable to have your sage advice at this time. Usually I’m smooth sailing, but travel (and eating out) seem to be my Achilles heel.

    I looked back at my data!!
    After reading your posts

    In the past 6 months, my avg monthly wts have been in the range 155.5 (Nov) and 157.9 (Dec) 2.4lb range

    If I go from May to now (since I declared maintenance April 25):
    My range over 8 months (monthly avg wts) was
    154.3 - 157.9. 3.6 lb range

    I’ll be okay.

    Both of these are HUGE wins for me.
    I will get my wt back down - it’s not that much of an increase

    THANK YOU!!

    I am in maintenance with a goal weight of 143 pounds and an allowable goal range of 140-150 pounds. I've been gaining slowly from October 1. I update once per week and report my ten-day average weight.

    January 4, 2019: Ten-day average 150.7

    October 4: Ten-day average 140.8
    November 4: Ten-day average 143.8
    December 4: Ten-day average 144.7
    January 4: Ten-day average 145.3


    Even though my weight has been pretty flat, my average weights were lower this time last month as well as two and three months ago. I'm still lower than a year ago by a fair bit.

    @MadisonMolly2017 I find this much simpler format so much easier to understand, and I'm tickled now that I see how well you've been doing since January 2016. You'll get back to your goal; it's that time of year.

    I'm pleased to report my SCALE weight has been less than one month ago three of the last four days. That's not as big of a thing since I've been UP since October. My ten-day average is still over what it was a month ago, but not b much. I hope that my Saturday update will show progress.

    @mtaratoot

    Thank you

    Here’s how I look At it

    My true goal is to keep the 71-73 lbs off,(155 -157) lbs) for the rest of my life.

    my immediate goal is to lose ~ 3-5lbs. And that becomes a critical goal because keeping the few pounds off IS how I will keep the 73-75.

    Everyday, I’ve kept an average of 73lbs off.

    That’s a miracle.

    So yup I’m committed to getting solidly back to 157.

    What is your plan to get to a number you will be more pleased with.

    Maddie

    January 4, 2019: Ten-day average 149.6

    October 4: Ten-day average 140.4
    November 4: Ten-day average 145.0
    December 4: Ten-day average 144.9
    January 11: Ten-day average 144.4


    Finally! After a slow, steady increase the last quarter of 2019, I'm heading back towards goal, and I'm almost there. By scale, I've lost 3.2 pounds in January, and by my ten day average almost a pound. Yay! My average weight is lower than one, two, and 12 months ago. My average weight three months ago was in a short period that it was at my lowest EVER. I may or may not get back there as it was actually below my goal range, but it felt good to be so successful. I look forward to reporting next week that I am below all three of these measures. Feels good to be back!

    I’m happy because actual weight is the same today 159.8 as a week ago after a fast, steep climb to 163.

    I like this format.

    I also like monthly averages!

    Congratulations @mtaratoot
    You have worked hard for
    this!!

    Thanks @MadisonMolly2017. And as you are well aware, we both will have to CONTINUE to work hard to maintain where we've come. My fourth quarter 2019 is evidence of this. I am looking forward to see what 2020 brings. I am optimistic I can make those fluctuations a little smaller, and I am REALLY hoping I can avoid the fourth quarter gain that I've experienced in 2018 and 2019. If I do have a gain, I am hoping it's smaller than 2019 which was smaller than 2018.

    Maybe some day in a few years I will be able to say, "I think I've got this licked." Of course once I lick it, I will think it tastes awesome and then eat it.πŸ˜’
