    This looks like a good thread for me, Some of the monthly weights are a best guess.

    Name: Rob
    Age: 67
    Height: 5' 7"
    Total weight lost: 195 total, 155 since starting my lastest diet in May 2019
    Time it took to lose: Its been over 10 years since my 360 high, I was at 320 in May of last year when I began my current diet.
    How long in maintenance: Just starting now.
    Maintenance weight range: 160s or maybe upper 150s, not sure yet
    Average weight recorded from 2018: 320, a guess
    Average weight recorded for 2019:

    Average weight recorded from January: 225, a guess
    Average weight recorded from February: 215
    Average weight recorded from March: 200, a guess
    Average weight recorded from April: 190, a guess
    Average weight recorded from May: 180, a guess
    Average weight recorded for June: 170, a guess
    Average weight recorded for July:
    Average weight recorded for August
    Average weight recorded for September
    Average weight recorded for Oct
    Average weight recorded for Nov
    Average weight recorded for Dec


    Week of..
    July 5 169
    July 12 167
    July 19 165
    July 26

    Success/Struggles: Right now figuring out how to successfully transition to maintenance. I am at 16% body fat and think I have probably lost enough weight.

    Welcome to the threads man! Congrats on getting to maintenance. Hope to see you with us for a long time.

    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
    Average weight recorded from February 2020: 144.2
    Average weight recorded from March 2020: 145.9
    Average weight recorded from April 2020: 148.5
    Average weight recorded from May 2020: 149.2
    Average weight recorded from June 2020: 147.3

    Average weight Week of...
    June 29 - July 5 ..... 146.7
    July 6 - 12 .............. 146.9
    July 13 - 19 .............. 146.5
    July 20 - 26 .............. 145.4
    July 27 - August 2 .....

    Success of the week: I am now really close to the middle of my maintenance range again. I'd like to get closer to the bottom, but this is fine. I am increasing the distance of my runs. I had a great success with my "new" vertical smoker. Still eating lots of fresh cucumbers (lemon cucumbers and the regular green slicing kind) every day from the garden, and I have started to get some ripe figs.

    Struggle of the week: I didn't get in a hike because I was a wimp in the 95-degree heat. And, like @GregInORL I have been made aware how much I've been relying on the data provided by my watch!

    July 12 172.8
    July 19 172.7
    July 26: 174.2

    Success: Continued to hit all my fitness and logging goals. Had a bit of a carb fest yesterday, leading to the highest weight recorded all week, but still under goal weight.

    Struggles: My physician took me off blood pressure medicine about 7 weeks ago (after a fainting spell because my blood pressure was too low!). I've been monitoring it since and this week it started creeping up and I was getting tension headaches. This morning it was just fine, but I need to keep an eye on it. Blood pressure might always be an issue for me, no matter what shape I am in. :(

    @mtaratoot and @GregInORL I haven't had any problems with my garmin watch, just the app and website. I have just uploaded my runs from the watch to the Strava website and I can look at the data there. And it is still on the watch and all the data will sync shen rhey get their issues resolved.
  • mtaratootmtaratoot Member Posts: 3,595 Member Member Posts: 3,595 Member
    Yeah, I am thinking about signing up for Strava to access my data. I'll give it a few more days.

    There's no way that it's Strava that mounted the DDoS attack on Garmin, right?

    Name Lesley
    Age: 69
    Height: 155 cm (5’ 1”)
    Total weight lost: 22.5 kg (approx. 50 lb)
    Time it took to lose: 9 months
    How long in maintenance: 14 months
    Maintenance weight range: 48 – 51 kg (106 – 112 lbs)

    Average weight recorded from 2018: max 72.5 kg in July, 56 kg in Dec
    Average weight 2019: 49.8 kg – reached goal weight in April, average since then 48.7 kg

    Average weight recorded in December 2019: 48.6 kg (107 lb)
    Average weight recorded for January: 49.8 kg (110 lb)
    Average weight recorded for February: 51.2 kg (113 lb)
    Average weight recorded for March: 50.6 kg (112 lb)
    Average weight recorded for April: 50.1 kg (110.5 lb)
    Average weight recorded for May: 49.1 kg (108 lb)
    Average weight recorded for June: 48.4 kg (107 lb)

    July 6th: 48.1 kg (trend 48.3 kg)
    July 13th: 48.3 kg (trend 48.5 kg)
    July 20th: 48.0 kg (trend 48.4 kg)
    July 27th: 48.8 kg (trend 48.3 kg)

    Successes/struggles:
    We went away in the motorhome again last week – similar routines as last time – lots of walking but no bike rides, no cardio routines, some food treats. The weigh-in on Saturday (first morning at home) was only 48.2 kg. However, family came visiting over the weekend, so more food, less exercise, etc. So this morning the scale was up. However, this week is a quiet one again.

    It was really good seeing all the grandchildren – haven’t seen them since February. Also, it was my son’s birthday on Saturday. He got very emotional – it’s his first birthday since his diagnosis, and all these occasions are very difficult for him. He has been having treatment (chemo) all through the lockdown, but his mental health is suffering, not helped by “shielding”.

    We are lucky that none of us has suffered from the virus these last few months. My daughter thinks she caught it but she wasn't badly affected, and the rest of us have been fine. I try to count my blessings and not worry too much about the future.

    July 12 158.09 💚
    July 19 157.89 💚
    July 26 157.84 💚

    Successes: Walking/hiking more than I have since beginning of weight loss journey 1/2/2016.
    Struggles: I tracked all food eaten - as usual - but ate way way way over maintenance . Usually I can figure out why & prevent it. Wasn’t able to today.

    So, I’m going to “white knuckle” it the next 3 days. That’s how long it takes me (cold turkey) to overcome appetite increase due to sugar/salt/refined carbs. I’m going to give myself a different reward for each of the 3 days - to enable me to overcome powerful addictive feelings. I rarely use rewards, but I feel like I need to do so this time to shift my behavior.

    July 7: 151.1
    July 14: 148.8
    July 21: N/A (VACATION!)
    July 28: 150.9

    Success/Struggles: So first time I’ve wandered off the reservation while in maintenance, so to speak. Was out of town on vacation for about 10 days. Ate pretty much anything I wanted and had enough adult beverages for the year! Was in a new part of the country I’d never been so I tried EVERYTHING! Only exercised once the whole week and spent like 4 days in the car, but good news is I only gained 3.4 lbs the whole time. I was shocked! I’ve already dropped one of those pounds, too. So even if you go crazy and totally abandon yourself for 10 days, the damage is minimal and quickly resolved! I imagine by the end of the week I’ll be back to my “range” and no worse for wear!

    Height: 169 cm (5'7")
    Total weight lost: 55.4 kg (122 lbs)
    Time it took to lose: 11 months
    How long in maintenance: 6 months (06/01/20)
    Maintenance weight range: 63-66 kg (139-145.5lbs)

    Monthly Averages:
    Jan 2020 average = 64.9 kgs (143.1 lbs)
    Feb 2020 average = 65.1 kgs (143.5 lbs)

    July 19 - 63.3 kgs (139.6 lbs)
    July 26 - 65.6 kgs (144.6 lbs)

    Successes/challenges: Week has been fine, nothing to report. But weight up 5lbs? I don't know how my body so easily goes from the bottom of my range up to the top of it in one week. The only thing I did differently is one less fasting day (I do intermittent fasting, and because my weight was on the low side last week, I dropped from 3 x42hr fasts to 2x42 hr fasts to prevent losing more weight). This is why I have to be so vigilant!

  • speyerjspeyerj Member Posts: 888 Member Member Posts: 888 Member
    @Luciicul - not sure what the weather is like by you, but we are having a heat wave in the Pacific NW and it's making me retain water like nobody's business. I'm up 3.2 pounds since Thursday.
