Six Months Into LC's

I've been watching carbs for the past 6.5 months. I did not do an induction and I don't follow either Atkins or South Beach. I do eat carbs but not those from the high glycemic index. I drink Silk milk, 2 carb per slice bread and eat a lot of either eggs or egg beaters. To date I've lost 42 pounds and have ate very well with the occasional chips and salsa at my fav Mexican place. I don't have a goal weight but I want to take off at least another 25 pounds which will put me under 200 pounds. I haven't been under two under pounds since the eight grade which was many years ago. I will continue to eat like I have been and when I am at a weight I feel good with just add things like fruit to go into maintenance. I've recently been walking one mile per day which hasn't made a big difference at the scales, however the dog loves it. I am looking for suggestions on conversion to maintenance and my weight loss in general, so please chime in.

Hi Bill - welcome. Looks like you're doing a great job and you have a good grasp of what you're doing. Your weight loss speaks for itself - about 7 pounds a month is great.

You might want to check out this sub-forum for Maintenance - I'm sure there's a lot of relevant information.

The Maintain Lane - Low Carb Friends
Don't worry about momentary cheats or stumbles, focus on succeeding in the long run. Always keep your eye on the target and if you stumble, get back up and stay in the race.

What we weigh is the result of a meal, a day, a week, a month, a year of choices...

Psssst...Nothing tastes as good as ketosis feels!

Love that you found what works for you! I think your plan to add some things back is good. Test them out and see how your body reacts. I would recommend checking out the maintenance thread too! Good job on the weight loss!!
