    Struggling to find motivation after hitting goal weight.

    Motivation? Do you have a picture of yourself six months and 55 pounds heavier? That might work.

    Just so you know, even though you already did, it ain't easy, but you can do it if you keep your focus. It's not motivation, it's focus. Let's do this!

    It's been hard to take a walk with the foot or so of snow we got. This morning it's zero degrees out to add to the misery.

    Closer to MR (maintenance Range)✅
    Stronger & more endurance ✅

    Struggles: Still too much salt. Not doing well when I eat out. Working on it.

    Labs are very good to excellent, but I can see some are edging in the wrong direction. A healthy diet seems to be essential for my good health. Still some trouble falling asleep this week

    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

    February 23rd:

    Successes: I think I'm finally leveling out! Now, I'm leveling out 3lbs lighter than I orginally wanted to, but I'm ok with that. I'll see how the next month goes and see if I need to widen my range. Feeling a bit better after a nasty week of sinus problems.

    Struggles: Last Sunday I changed my goal to gain .5lbs week. I thought maybe seeing the higher goal would help me mentally get closer to the calories I need to eat. I did get closer, but no where near the 'gain' number.

    Here is to a great week!

    Success(es)/struggle(s) of the week: Slowly losing what ever the spike was from last week. Still not where I want to be will be watching again this week. I'm hoping by the end of the month I will be mid range in my goal weight range. Have a great week.

    Week of
    February 2: 149.8 (Trend: 146.7)
    February 9: 145.5 (Trend: 146.6)

    Struggles: Straight legged my left knee on a run and think changing my gait too much to accommodate it has made my quad very sore. Looks like a few days off are in order. It’s taper time for LA Marathon anyways; so perfect time for extra rest.

    Successes: Made sure last weeks +6 lb swing remained just that, a swing and not the beginning of a longer pattern upwards. Took the whole week but trend is back where it was before. A couple more days and hopefully it’ll catch up to maintain or loss instead of projected gain.

    Age: 51
    Height: 6'
    Total weight lost: ~60 lbs
    Time it took to lose: 8 months
    How long in maintenance: Since ~ December 2018
    Maintenance weight range: 163-168

    Average weight recorded for 2019: 162.8
    Average weight recorded for December 2019: 162.6
    Average weight recorded for January 2020: 162.2

    Week of...
    January 2nd: 159.4 (trend 161.3)
    January 9th: 158.9 (trend 161.6)

    Successes: As predicted, salty Super Bowl snacks and my wife's birthday dinner led to a big bounce at the beginning of the week that was shed pretty quickly. I'm going to up my calories a little bit this coming week (on a daily, consistent basis, rather than some of these roller-coaster weeks lately) to get back to the bottom of my range. Fit in cardio every day and have been active in general. I'm thinking I need to cut back on my cardio a couple of times a week to have sufficient time to do more strength training, though.

    Have a great week, everyone!

    Success(es)/struggle(s) of the week: Had another big drop this week. I did have a moment of weakness yesterday and allowed myself to have another donut and a more than one serving of apple crumble that me and my partner was supposed to share. Back on track for the next 4 days as my partner is away but we have plans on going to a Japanese buffet on Friday that just opened not far away from our place. I should be able to stick as close to my goal as possible.

    Success(es)/struggle(s) of the week: All on plan this week and feeling good. Started logging on MFP to see what my macro ratios look like. Just had 3x vodka sodas on saturday at a DJ party (wheras i'd normally have a few more wines than that as well as alcohol on friday and sunday, which i avoided).

    Success(es)/struggle(s) of the week: Another low weight this weekend. I'm a little frustrated by it since I like to be at least 113, but I do tend to have my lowest weights on Saturday and Sunday and my highest weights on Wednesday and Thursday. And Wednesday's weigh in was 114.6. Maybe I need to start having Wednesday as my check in day. Lol. I guess I just need to make sure I hit my calorie goal every day.  I did buy girl scout cookies yesterday so that should help. Lol.
  • mtaratootmtaratoot Posts: 2,447Member Member Posts: 2,447Member Member
    @kgirlhart - at least you aren't underweight at your lower than desired weight. Girl scout cookies; yeah. And avocados. I very briefly had concerns that I'd go below my goal range, but that was fleeting. Some of THIS would help, too....

    Success(es)/struggle(s) of the week:

    Success: now I have a fitbit I have been monitoring the quality of my sleep and making changes to improve it further (primarily: going to bed even earlier). Ironically, my sleep doesn't feel better even though fitbit tells me my quality of sleep has improved. I haven't been waking refreshed or with energy, rather I seem to be spending more time in bed without feeling better for it.

    Struggles:
    Have slipped into some emotional eating this week. Thought I had slayed that dragon last year, but the minute the stress ratchets up (stuff outside of my control), I find myself eating extra food even when I've already eaten more than enough. I also went a bit overboard with sugar-free chocolate. Nothing as bad as binges of the past, but when one serving size is 2-3 squares of chocolate and I ended up eating more like four or five serves...

    On target. I plan meals regularly but last week had several situations that weren't on the plan. I still logged my food and I'm happy to report that I pretty much stayed within my calorie goal which translated into staying at my goal weight.
