    Same here work and more work! I tried out a Lindy hop class this evening and was good. Yoga on Thursday night too.

    Food is going well with 1500 cals. Liking the food and choices. You can eat quite a bit. I've had what I wanted and comprised as well. Felt ok with it.

    Yes, calorie counting is brilliant! I'm trying to stay below 1,400 in the week now, which is fine. xx

    Only in very small amounts, I'm more or less maintaining now, but in a slightly downward trajectory, lol. How much more do you want to lose? xx

    If I lose a good 3st 7 I'll be at a BMI of 25. Aiming for that and re-evaluate. Would prefer to get lower but see how it is as I have never been at that weight as an adult before.

    Going to stick to 1500 cals and if need to lower will do at 50 cals instalments but hoping the exercise will balance it out for now.

    Wouldn't you be eating about 2000 cals now to maintain?

    If I'd never been overweight, my TDEE would be 1,667, but it's reckoned that you need to eat about 20% less than that once you've lost a significant amount of weight, because your metabolism will never be the same as that of someone who's never been overweight. That's my understanding from reading about the subject, and various programmes I've seen. So maintenance for me would be around 1,400. I'll see how it goes at that level. Getting to a healthy BMI was my goal too, and I'm at something like 23.3 now - so nice to be able to go to the doctor's and not be told I'm overweight, lol. xx

    This maintenance business is new ground and it is interesting. Most of us are in the losing stage rather than maintenance so it's not something people need to think about.

    Definitely worth having a plan for when you get there though! I think my problem is that I'm not prepared to say I've stopped losing, lol. xx

    Always need a plan. Do you think there is going to be some time before the mind catches up?

    Id never heard of the 20% thing! No wonder I put so much on so fast. I new it took time for it to rebalance, but I figured after a year i would have been fine. I definitely need to reevaluate what I am going to do once I lose again.

    This week we have my sons birthday so we have lots of plans for that!
    I lost 140lbs and have put 60lbs back on. Time to get my butt in gear!

    Yes, it's a bugger, isn't it?! This is a snippet from one of the things I've seen that mentioned it (a very good programme from your home country, if I remember correctly, hon?):
