I did get the chance to weigh myself this morning around 5AM. On Friday I was 156.8 but today I was 155 exactly. In just 10 pounds Iíll be a normal BMI for my height. I had a burger today and Iím not sure on the calories but I was just going to have soup for dinner and I should be fine.

Pretty much right at goal, though I might have under logged dinner due to eating family style (with the family) so I didn't weigh things out. The other wild card is exercise this morning. 45 minutes of full on cardio that the machine pegged at over 500 plus 30 minutes of circuit training that was more toward strength training than cardio. I took 475 total. Worst case might be a wash instead of a deficit. I will weigh in the morning. I am not too stressed about it, though a nasty surprise is not out of the question if I am retaining water. I think I will be 158 or 159.

Surprised in a nice way this morning - 157. I am not kidding myself about being able to slack off though. I want to see a few low 150s before I believe I have it back under control.

I am at 169 pounds. What are the reasons for this? Before I can determine this, there are a few things that I need to do. I need to work on discapline. I need to more consistently log here my calories consumed and burned every day. I need to more accurately move over to the next day my overages and days that I am short my target, and make up for them. About once a week on average I am short by at least 300 calories. Not good. Lazy. I need to start my meals earlier in the morning, and make sure I meet my targets. This may require snacking if necessary, something I have not done in some time. What can I snack on that is inexpensive?

Once I have done the above for at least a week or two, then I will reassess my situation. I may be overestimating the calories consumed when I have to guess the amount. I may need to adjust my determination of calories burned, or attempt to determine the calories burned on those exercise machines.

I attended yoga class again today and I enjoyed it again,though some of the positions are tough....I had tea at the cafe after...it feels good to do some form of movement with my body...and I am learning to pay attention and improve my inner awareness too.
I still have to improve my diet.

I had a string cheese for a snack at work at 10. That had 80 calories. I also had a large thermos of diet Lipton green tea. For lunch I had a mini Stouffers cheese lasagna at 340. Then I went to McDonaldís and got a 6 piece nugget and small fry which was 500 calories. Dinner will be 4oz of a Cornish hen. Thats 220 calories. Thatís only 1,140 calories for the day. Iím too stressed about the cat and my dentist appointment and work to really care about reaching my calorie goal.

It seems my forever changing baseline caloroes probably helped to make my weight yo-yo. I started losing some weight when I stopped using MFP calories. When I used my watch, that caused some problems with weight too. However, when I performed better, the calories indicated by the watch went down. When this figure was too high, I frequently adjusted downward. I imagine this helped for better assessment of calories. When I went to MET, my calories burned went down a bit. I also think moving my base down to 2200 helped in the weight loss. As I have said before, I need to be more discaplined and consistent with my calories consumed and burned, and meeting my targets. I need to stick with this approach. I do not know how to determine calories burned on the machines at the fitness center. This is a difficukt to determine variable. However, I have not begun to use the machines to any significant extent.

@Tucson - How big is your maintenance range? What is the bottom and what is the top? Even though I obsess every bit as much as you, it's a lot easier to play with the numbers when you have a big range.
