I'm flat lined out in the 116's. I'd prefer to be 116 or lower. 13-116 is my BEST weight So, I need to lose about a pound.

It could take me a couple of months to lose AND sustain the loss... so I'll be doing that work. 

GRAPHS, because, I use my data as a key tool for weight maintenance. 

Stepping back and looking. I'm pretty happy. I feel okay. I won't always feel my BEST, but that's okay. It's good enough. My maintenance plan is sustainable. Sustainability is the best I can hope for, along with my health. I'm very fortunate.
