Today's actual 120.2
Trending 119.3

I've thought this so many times before and been wrong; so, I've hesitated to say anything. But, I'm wondering if my body is returning to its pre-pelvic fracture center of 125 lbs. Time will tell.

I SO want to believe that my body is healing and rebuilding. Carb tolerance appears to be improving. Or, it may simply be that in December 2017 I bumbled onto an incredibly important particular for my body and am learning how to use it to the body's advantage.

Old Rock Day Scale Weight Statistics:

118.0 lbs. average
114.8 lbs. minimum
121.2 lbs. maximum

(121.2 lbs. - 114.8 lbs.) / 118.0 lbs. = 5.42% which is considered a healthy range of fluctuation given it is within 6.0% or +/- 3.0%

Who would have thought I'd blow this challenge on the very last week by .4 ounces. Disappointing, but so it goes. It's what I get for having company and eating salty restaurant food for 3 days!

Gotta be honest and get back on track. I had one day of eating on plan before succumbing to sugar's siren call yesterday. Working for at least a 2-day streak starting today:). JSTETSER's latest challenge is helping me with some additional accountability.

Waffling on whether to hold my center for the next challenge or increase it by going with the long term challenge average. Giving some thought to what I'd like to learn and what will serve that effort.

Until I went and reviewed the data, I wasn't sure if my sense of things was correct. My sense was spot on.

This challenge saw the greatest fluctuations in scale weight since the inflammatory flare of summer 2017. Last summer's inexplicable upward trend spanned 2 different challenges. So, combined, those fluctuations were a bit higher.

Since the sideways trend emerged in December 2014, the only challenge that has seen greater scale weight fluctuations than this one was the pronounced inflammatory flare of summer 2016.

By summer 2017, I recognized the inflammatory flare as it emerged and jumped on it quickly. In summer 2016, I did not understand what was being experienced.

I'm not sure about this most recent experience. I have many thoughts about it and it will likely take some time to tease the situation out, assuming that is possible, since we still do not fully understand what occurred in summer 2018.

Things appear to be settling down; but, a few days does not make a trend. I was contemplating increasing my center weight for the next challenge. Thinking I may leave it alone.

Week 8 : Wed 12/25/2019 - Tue 12/31/2019 -- 118.9 lbs. (Actual 120.2 lbs.)
Week 9 : Wed 01/01/2020 - Tue 01/07/2020 -- 119.1 lbs. (Actual 118.0 lbs.)

During the week the highest scale weight seen in 18 months occurred. Today's weight is 3.2 lbs. lower, despite the greatest calorie differential in nearly a year. This week's calorie differential is the greatest, since the nutritional tweaks instituted in March 2019.

Residual swelling remains in the eye and facial lymph nodes. It appears that it's going to take months to resolve (and not days as expected by the docs) just like it did in the summer of 2016. Despite that setback, there may be be some improvements afoot.

Wishful thinking? Perhaps. But, that's my story and I'm sticking to it! emoticon

I keep thinking that this slight upward trend is from poor eating, and it might be - but I have been diligent the past few days to eat well and the trend still is showing a slight uptick. Nothing to worry about of course, it is small. But also remembered that I tried to go off my RA meds over the holidays and I wonder now if inflammation is impacting me. I don't want to take the meds and have been trying to get by with some essential oils instead but the pain has been apparent and so I resumed the medication over the weekend. I need to continue eating well and see what happens.

Week 1 : Wed 11/06/2019 - 125.8
Week 2 : Wed 11/13/2019 - 125.7

Yes, indeed, Stephanie! Progress NOT Perfection.

It's been more a curiosity for me to see if my body fit the supposed 'norm' for healthy weight fluctuation. My body does not. However, that is not at all surprising either because I am NOT healthy.

So, given the depth of the health challenges, I think I've done an absolutely EXCELLENT job of maintaining! And, quite frankly, am surprised by how well I have done.

I like to say that I've never dieted because I've never followed a calorie restrictive program. The process for me has been about learning what does and does not support my physical health and well-being (physical, mental, emotional, spiritual).

Of course, I did learn that when I'm not present in the moment, it can be easy for me to either under eat or over eat. I do not seem to share many of the challenges that many experience with weight loss / weight maintenance. Sugar does not appeal to me. I am not an emotional eater. I am not a stress eater. In fact, I am more likely to under eat when experiencing stress. I abhor the feeling of being full. I do not snack. I do not eat after dinner. Allowing 12 hours between dinner and breakfast has, for the most part, been a common lifelong practice.

What led to the obesity for me was lack of awareness and ignorance. Given what I've learned and put into practice and remaining far more aware, the weight came off.

In fact, it was not even a desire to lose weight that launched my journey. It was an effort to reduce unbearable stress. So, BAPEARMAN & I began walking routinely. Who ever would have thought that a simple commitment to walk with a friend would have led to the journey I've lived over the past 6+ years. Incredible! I will, forever, be thankful to BAPEARMAN and that fateful request to join her in walking, after I'd posted the grades at semester's end in June 2013.

Today's actual 118.8
Trending 118.9

This has been an incredibly interesting year for me. Another year of marked health challenges and operating under severe activity restrictions. And, with the activity restriction came tighter weight fluctuation.

Following the pelvic fracture in 2015, I was under severe activity restriction for essentially 2 years. Although, those restrictions did begin to ease after 18 months. It was during 2016 that I saw the weight fluctuate 8.2 lbs. or 6.8%.

Until this year, that had been the tightest weight fluctuation I'd experienced since the sideways trend emerged in December 2014 which was 6 months after declaring goal reached at 144 lbs. in June 2014.

This year the weight fluctuated over a range of 7.4 lbs. or 6.4%. So, a bit better than 2016; but, still not the idealized 6.0% or +/- 3.0% that we use for the weight maintenance challenges. A statistic said to represent a range wide enough to account for routine fluid fluctuation and not impact health.

Today, marks 5 years since that sideways trend emerged. And, I have yet to succeed in meeting that +/- 3.0% range.

Does that make me a failure as a maintainer? I don't think so. Quite frankly, I consider myself an excellent maintainer.

Am I healthy? No.

Am I doing my best? Yes.

Onward!

Today's actual 119.6
Trending 118.9

Coincidentally, and not at all surprised, the increased weight is occurring with the increased fatigue. This is what occurred in Summer 2018. December's monthly average of the scale weights is right in there with the scale weight averages that occurred in Summer 2018, when I lost the exercise tolerance.

There may be other factors at play here as well: lack of running water for nearly 2 weeks, restaurant food versus home-cooked meals, etc.

Oh my, I didn't even realize I hadn't logged for this week - thanks for the head's up Jeanne! That is what being on vacation but still working does, during the holidays with company over and trying to still get workouts in, etc - just makes me confused! Haha but got it logged so all is well! I definitely splurged and indulged recently but the past few days I have been back on track with my focus on produce and some lean protein.

Residual swelling remains in the eye and facial lymph nodes. Pain is emerging in the joints which I sense is related to restaurant food. With no running water for over a week, we've eaten out more than we typically do. Despite making the best choices that I can, the food quality is outside my control.

At home we're eating organic, non-GMO, pastured, 100% grass-fed & grass-finished beef, wild fish, etc. This is not the type of fare available at our local restaurants. So, it appears that my body is beginning to feel the effects.

For decades (learned this lesson in my early 20s), I've been well aware that the conditions under which the food I consume (both plant & animal) is grown/reared impacts my body. Doing the best I can given the situation and feeling like I'm managing it well.

Trending 120.71

Only .9 up from my pre-trip weight. Not too shabby after 4 days of earing too much trail mix (mostly raisins) and pistachio nuts in the evenings.
I ate wisely and moderately the rest of the time, and will resume tracking today.
