I created a Weight Range Maintenance Chart
in order to make my maintenance weight goals clearly visible.
This is my Current Chart.
Here is a scale photo of my current weight.
I have been successfully maintaining a very large weight-loss for many years. You can find my history in the ABOUT ME section which contains a great many links to detailed weight and calorie charts.
I reached my goal weight of 115 pounds in January 2006, and since that time I’ve been making ongoing, consistent, diligent efforts to maintain my weight near that number.
I work to keep my weight within a certain number range, rather than at an individual “goal weight” number.
I find this necessary because my body has frequent large weight bounces due to salt/water/waste issues.
Despite my best efforts, during any one-month period, my daily weight tends to bounce back and forth inside a 5 to 8 pound range.
For the past 12 years, I’ve been able to keep these bounces between 115 and 135 pounds.
On occasion however, my weight has BRIEFLY been as much as 10 pounds below and 5 pounds above that basic bounce range.
The yearly weight chart posted here shows my very lowest yearly weight during each of the past 12 years.
In order to demonstrate that the increases in these yearly lowest weights were NOT due to periods of inattention or a lack of effort, I’m also posting a corresponding yearly calorie chart showing my average daily calories during each of these passing years.
I’ll be writing more about this issue in an further article on the subject of Biological Adaptation to Weight Loss and Maintenance.
My current Weight Range Maintenance Chart shown at the top of this article is a modification and simplification of this previous chart.
During my 12 year maintenance period, although I’ve kept the Basic weight-range maintenance chart format, I’ve made several modifications to it.
