Well, I'm still fumbling through transition, not doing too badly though. It's hard not to get excited about upping the carbs and calories and adding new foods, and then overdoing it. I'm hanging in there though. I've had a few slip ups, one involving peanut butter - so good, so many calories, so hard to stop eating! Same with the higher sugar fruit. But although I've gone higher in calories than I would like, I'm still eating at a deficit, so I shouldn't have gained any. I don't have a weigh-in until Friday (my appointments are 2 weeks apart now, and I don't have a scales at home), so we'll see how it goes! I am wondering if I will add any water weight because of the increase in carbs, but I've been doing it gradually, so hopefully not.

Hi Catlady!

You're doing so well.

Just a thought, why don't you start an exercise program to counter the additional calories and higher carb/fat foods? Perhaps adding 30 minutes of brisk walking at a slight incline 3-4 x week?

Just a suggestion. Exercise is a great way to manage maitenance when we're adding in new foods.

Hi,
I haven't checked the posts in a week or so and just saw that you made your goal. Congratulations! You really seemed to work this program and are an inspiration. Keep plugging away at it and keep posting.

Thanks Barb and thanks Sue for the suggestion, that's a good idea! More exercise certainly never hurts!

Today I had my weigh-in after my two week transition period, and I lost two more pounds of fat, but gained 3 pounds of water. Of course, that was to be expected since I'm adding carbs back. It's a bit disheartening to see the number go up, but I know that I actually accomplished what I wanted, which was to continue to lose fat (or at least maintain) while adding back the carbs and the water weight that inevitably includes. It makes me glad I went a little under my goal weight, because I really don't want to go above 150.

Now I just have to continue what I've been doing for the next couple of weeks, and then I will have my wellness appointment where they take blood and check everything, as well as hook me up to the machine that tells you how many calories to consume in maintenance. I'm not sure how I feel about that, I'm a little skeptical as to how such a thing would work, but I'm keeping an open mind. :-) Regardless, I will take whatever number they give me, and use trial and error to determine how much I'm able to eat without gaining. That's been my main philosophy with this weight loss program - keep an open mind, but do my research and think for myself as well.

Sounds like you have a good plan. I am very curious about that test and the machine. I look forward to hearing how it works for you.
