    Average weight Week of...
    June 29 - July 5 ....... 146.7


    Success of the week: Even though my average weight is up a bit this week, the trend is still down, and I'm still on track to get it back to the middle or lower end of my maintenance range. My average weight in June was moderating back down from May and from April. Soon I'll be back to where I was in March which was where I prefer to be.

    Struggle of the week: Nothing that I really recall.

    Success/Struggles: Enjoyed my 4th of July weekend immensely! Pretty much didn’t log for 2 days, which is the first time I’ve done that in almost 5 months. But, that being said, I’m literally up only 1 ½ pounds after all of that. Back on track yesterday so I should see that drop off in a day or two tops I’m guessing. Got back to running yesterday (it had been like a week or more) and knocked out 3 miles which was nice. Weight training is going well (nothing massive, just something light). Fitting into my old medium sized shirts again!

    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

    Successes/Struggles: Did a bunch of digging and mulching yesterday, our back yard make over is almost complete. Very sore today, but it's nice to see progress. Everything else is pretty much same old, same old. Still working at home, doing minimal errands. Coronavirus is spiking like crazy all over our state. I think I'll stay put for a while.

    Hope everyone had a great week.

    Successes: experimenting with tofu more, found it cheap at the international market! Want to try it in the air fryer too.

    Struggles: while my weight is within the range I set, seeing it creep up does make me think I’m going to just beeline to my starting weight tomorrow. Logically I know that’s not true but it is a feeling. Just trying to acknowledge the feeling, and acknowledge the logical response. This is a long term journey

    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.

    Success(es)/struggle(s) of the week: I'm still sitting just above the high end of my range, which I'm not happy about. I bumped up my daily steps goal again, and with some walks outside, I managed to get my weekly steps over 90k again. I've added a bit of fresh fruit into my diet but hope to be able to add more fruits and vegetables. It's a struggle between trying to eat healthier and cook more and trying to support local restaurants and ordering takeout. The restaurant food is keeping my weight high, likely due to a combination of lots of sodium and carbs, and I also might be underestimating calories a bit, so I'm going to try to cut down to maybe only 1 takeout meal per week and do more cooking.

    July 27 - August 2 .....

    Success of the week: Even though my average weight is up a bit this week (0.2 from last week, 0.9 from two weeks ago), the TrendWeight website still shows me slowly losing, and my average weight is down about a half pound from three weeks ago. I started running a few weeks ago, and this week enjoyed it and set some best times and a farthest distance.

    Struggle of the week: I still struggle with admitting to myself that I am actually maintaining my weight because it's fluctuating up and down just a few pounds over what I have deemed "ideal." I need to step back and look at the big picture because when I do that, I see that I'm actually closer to that elusive "ideal" weight than I was two years ago when I started maintenance and almost exactly the same as it was one year ago. I have certainly fluctuated both up AND down since then; it's just what happens, and that is to be expected.

    Success: Dropped the water weight that was the result of running a half marathon - if you eat a lot of carbs, drink a lot of electrolytes and put your body under stress, you will retain water. I'm happy to have realized that and didn't freak out or alter my plan. I stayed the course and trusted that it would right itself over the course of the week.

    Struggles: Kind of gave up logging yesterday. I had another couple over for wine and cheese on my deck - my first attempt at a socially distanced social gathering. It was wonderful. But I mindlessly ate cheese, crackers and charcuterie and really had no idea how much I ate. Lesson learned: make a plate for myself in advance, weighing quantities before and after. I already had separate cheese plates for each couple - to prevent cross contamination - so making a cheese plate just for myself wouldn't be a stretch. At any rate, no damage done. I appear to have stayed within my calories over the course of the week.
