I recently made changes to my Weight Range Maintenance Plan.
Previously the top black "Unacceptable" area was 126 lbs and over,
(now the "Unacceptable" area is 130 lbs and over);
and the red "LoseWeight" area was 125-120,
(now the "LoseWeight" area is 129-126 lbs)
The use of a visual image is an effective way to set specific goal-weight-range numbers into my mind and heart. I tell about how I created this graphic, and why, in a previous article, "Setting A Goal Range".
See that article to see the original chart and the maintenance weights that I originally set for myself.
Over time I've adjusted the graphic to reflect my current realities. See "Change in my Weight Range Maintenance Plan" for my previous changes to these numbers and the reason for making them.
During this entire past year, despite consistent and continual ongoing low-calorie eating, together with keeping accurate daily records of my food intake in the computer food journal DietPower, my weight has refused to drop down to my former maintenance levels.
My body will not allow me to be as active here in my late 60s, and it also appears to need a great deal LESS food than it did in past years. Therefore I am again changing my Weight Range Maintenance Plan to reflect my current reality.
See "Records: My Past 8 Years" for a detailed understanding of the relationship between my food-intake and my body-weight. I am still keeping these type of records, and one of these days, I will do another post with updated information.
