Hey All! So, life in Maintenance has been tricky. Just when you think things are going good, you get comfortable and it all changes. I guess that's why this is a Life Change, right. I'm trying to get things all figured out. I can't eat whatever I want, and that has been hard because this part of the diet is not as strict as the Low Calorie round. In Phase 2, it was very very clear what you could and couldn't eat in order to maximize your weight loss. In Phase 3 (or maintenance), you have to calculate your BMR, eat from a long list of foods, and just work at stabilizing. Your one tool is a steak day. You do that when you have gained more than two pounds. Sounds easy, right? It should be. But that is where I'm stuck. I'm in a little bit of a twilight zone right now.
I know that I don't want to mess up the work I've done. So the best thing is to get a handle and not let it get away from me.
I'm sitting at 2.3 pounds above my lowest weight.
I should have done a steak day today and I didn't.
So that's where it's at, and I'm trying to get a game plan in place to fix it.
HERE is where I"m going for all my support! If you are doing this diet, at any Phase, this is where to go for help and answers. It's the best support I've found!
