I reached my goal!

I'm very excited and so proud of myself for persevering through a rough Induction( headaches, no energy, extreme irritability with a loss of just 4 lbs)and slow loss! It has taken me 22 weeks to lose 18 pounds, which is actually below the goal I had originally set. I am so glad I stuck with it. I feel so much better in so many ways!

Outstanding!!!
Are you adding a few carbs back into your diet so as not to lose further or are you going for OWL. As I got closer to goal I actually had to decrease my fat/calorie intake to drop those last few pounds. I am very happy at my current weight and actually have to be vigilant about not losing further.
Who wouldda thunk that would ever be a problem! LOL

Avid: I am increasing but I'm very nervous about it. Some days I eat up to 35 grams.. But I just feel like I'm going to have to take it very slowly from here.. I'm still weighing every day, but I'm not tracking my food anymore- well, I do count grams but I just don't record them. I really think I cannot afford to lose more than 1 more pound. I have a curvy body and the 141 I weigh right now is thin. So yes, I am adding carbs slowly.

LOL...You remember!
They fit fine, not snug, not lose, just perfect.
I've pretty much stopped adding back carbs because my weight has been holding very steady and I'm enjoying my woe.
You'll do fine.
