    Just setting this up for Sunday. Hope everyone had a great January!

    Hi! My name is Kristen. And I struggle to maintain my weight. I have had great success losing/gaining, but I'm hoping this group helps me be more accountable. I weigh only 1x week on Sundays, so that's when I'll check in. My 2 goals in 2020 are to not let the scale go above 153 and weigh in EVERY Sunday for the WHOLE YEAR. This seems easy to most, but I get lazy and make excuses why I don't need to weigh in and then all of a sudden everything in my closet has shrunk. LOL

    Success(es)/struggle(s) of the week: YIKES!! Where did that spike come from. I was 134 on Friday morning. I know I did not eat over 10,000 calories since Friday. Saturday was not feeling the best all I had was a turkey burger. Will see what it says not week.

    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 2019 (12 months): 144.8

    Average weight recorded from December 2019: 145.0
    Average weight recorded from January 2020: 143.7

    Success(es)/struggle(s) of the week: Weight's finally down again this week, I also started my TOM this week so that would explain the weight/water retention. I also should be back on track with my training now I'm back working the earlier shift. Had a treat meal on Friday and woke up the lightest I've ever been. I would like to think that my body responds very well to refeeds.

    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 from 2018 (12 months): 109.8

    Success(es)/struggle(s) of the week: Sometimes the little successes help to put things in perspective. Although my weight is still on the higher end of my maintenance range, I noticed the other day that I've got an over 1000 day streak on MFP. The daily weight fluctuations get to me sometimes, but I've managed to come here and stay accountable for almost 3 years, and have come a long way since back before I started here and before I figured out that I didn't have to be miserable in order to lose weight.

    Well done sticking with the program, getting to your goal range, and staying there. It's not easy. And well done with the feedback from your streak that you ARE sticking to it! And YAY for figuring out that you don't have to be miserable! Seems like you've got things dialed. I can guarantee you are NOT the only person here who dislikes the fluctuations, and yet you recognize that it's just part of the program.

    Here's to your next thousand days!

    Thank you!! Yes, the worst part of maintenance for me is the mental game that the fluctuations like to play!

    Success(es)/struggle(s) of the week: Weight is a little low this week, so I will be focusing on making sure I hit my calorie goal every day.  I got up to 2497 calories today so that should help. My goal is 2200 using TDEE.

    Is there a way to combine the two February check in threads? I guess for now I will post in both.

    Week of...
    January 2nd: 159.4 (trend 161.3)

    Successes: I stayed very active throughout the week and made it to the gym daily. Started the day at a lower weight after banking up calories during the week for the Super Bowl snacks. I'm sure tomorrow will read much higher, but it's just a momentary blip. It was interesting to listen to co-workers talk about starting a weight-loss challenge and having a happy moment realizing that I'm perfectly good at my current weight.

    @mtaratoot Fiddling with the Garmin settings has improved the calorie burn accuracy a bit, but it's still short by about 400 or so calories. I'm too lazy to mess with it more at the moment and am just going by what my usual TDEE has been over the last year or so.

    Successes: Had a few high days this week, but yesterday was really low, basically forced myself to eat 1200-ish calories of healthy food.

    Struggles: Saturday was a result of me overdoing it Friday. Work happy hour, more beer than I usually drink, fried food and a tailgate at work for the Super Bowl. Didn't over eat, just ate things that resulted in me being miserable yesterday. Have some sort of sinus issues that aren't helping either.

    Here is to a better week!

    February 24th:
    Successes/struggles: Nearly 3 weeks since the op, and I’m making progress. I’m clocking up about 5,000 steps a day, doing my recovery exercises and some seated exercises from Utube videos. I’m trying not to worry about putting on weight as I know I need to eat properly, and I’m still dependent on my boyfriend (who can’t cook from scratch) and eating out. I’m not allowed to stand for long and obviously can’t lift anything heavier than a half-filled kettle, so shopping and cooking for myself are not possible yet. I tell myself that in 5 weeks I can’t put on more than about 2.5 kg (or 5.5 lbs) and once I can get back to my usual activity levels that will go without too much difficulty.
    I see the surgeon and the physio at the end of Feb (6 weeks after the op) so waiting for the sign off then. Hoping to get back to normal by the end of March.

    @Jimb376mfp Hope you are doing well. I had spinal fusion (lower back) 25 years ago, takes a while to get moving again. Best wishes.

    I'm in a pretty good place with my eating and exercise, am maybe being a bit slack with sleep (staying up a bit later than ideal, but not "too late") so I just have to make sure I don't backslide.

    I'm considering whether to see a physio as my knee has been reacting a bit to the HIIT routine that I started doing about 4 weeks ago. Nothing serious, but I don't want to do myself an injury.
