    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:
    Ideally 142 - 148
    Absolutely 140-150

    (and STILL not sure those are the right answers)

    Average weight recorded from 2018 (12 months): 150.7
    Average weight recorded from 2019 (12 months): 144.8

    Success of the week: My mass is a whole pound closer to maintenance range; only about three pounds to go. Then another five pounds to get to the middle of that range closer to actual goal weight.


    Struggle of the week: May was another month in the wrong direction.

    Struggles: It's the end of our academic year, exam boards, with a lot of complex calculations because of lockdown over the last year and a bit. I was up until the middle of the night checking spreadsheets, so was not surprised to be up at my weigh in this morning. However, my weight does seem to be drifting up bit so I need to take action to drift down again! I'm still in my wider maintenance range, but would really like to keep under 75.5 kg.

    Height: 176 cm
    Heaviest weight: 98.9 kg
    Total Weight lost: 35 kg
    Time it took to lose: 12 months
    How long in maintenance: Since April 2016 - but gained 10 kg March-May 2020 after massive trauma combined with COVID-19.
    Maintenance weight range: 65-75 kg (not sure what’s the right answer - been up and down in there numerous times in my life, apart from going way over 2010-2015).
    I’d like to lose a bit to get back to 70 kg, but I’m still happy at around 75 kg.

    I’m experimenting with seeing how my satiety levels are in relation to the types of foods I eat. Trying to eat more whole foods, which I’ve been getting pretty good at, and less sugar, and it’s going quite well.
    Weekly averages checking day for me is Sunday.

    Up a pound, probably thanks to eating pasta a few days (still under my calorie limit). Mmm, pasta.

    Successes/struggles of the week: My weight jumped up over the top of my range this past week, likely a combination of eating a lot of restaurant food (bbq, pizza, lots of desserts), as well as some stress this week. I'm bumping my daily steps goal up yet again and will also again add in extra calories to my estimates when logging restaurant food.

    I did have some successes this week in my workouts though. I hit the milestone of lifting 200 lbs in barbell glute bridges this week, and also progressed to 100 lbs for deadlifts.

    Went from 113 to 115 in one day. It is interesting that a one day bump of two lbs. is less worrisome than a gradually several ounces daily gain over a couple of weeks. I do weigh myself daily to help to keep the focus so I know what is normal for me.

    Reflection: My monthly average is slightly up, so I probably need to have a think about what I am eating, especially at lunch time. I haven't been tracking for the last week or so; I think I need to go back to doing that with mfp set to lose 1kg/month. The plus side is that I am enjoying exercise and if there is an upwards trend it is very slight. This still feels like a good place to be.
