Hello again! An update.
Happy Holidays, JBs!

I have a laptop again (thanks Santa!), which is going to make it so much easier to post here! (I've been reading on my phone, but it's hard to post that way). Also, now that the learning curve at my new job is starting to flatten out, I'm ready to be in weight loss mode again. :up:

I've been doing rotations, but they have been very loose. As a result, I haven't lost anything over the past couple months, and recently I added back a few pounds over the holidays... I'll know how much is true gain after I've done a few really good rotations, but it is less than ten, so not too much damage.

I'm totally OK with it though. Even though this break slowed down my progress, I think I really needed it. The plus side is, I didn't regain much despite some stress and pressure from the new job (of the positive kind when you're just learning so much that it hurts your brain a little!), and now I'm feeling refreshed and physically and mentally ready to start phase II. :)

Welcome back, Calichris. It is good to see you.

I'm so pleased to see you again, CaliChris. I'm sure you're in for a rousing :welcome: back to an online home from home. :)

ETA: Such a relief to see that the new job is stretching you but not exceeding your resources. And I hope that you've enjoyed your maintenance period, consolidating your losses and adjusting to them. :)

Hello Christina!

I hope the new job is going well. And, congratulations on practically maintaining during the change over! I think for many bodies spending time in maintenance on the way to goal is a very good thing - kind of resets, stabilizes, and sets you up for a fresh start.
