    @readyornot1234 - wow - your commitment is so impressive and inspiring! I love your goal of staying active into your 100’s - I want to be that person too!

    In the past couple months I have learned more about maintenance than I ever heard in 50 years. It’s a shame the diet industry makes millions talking about losing weight with precious little time spent talking about maintenance. I have an official maintenance break planned for the end of the year, so although I’ve had weeks go by holding steady, I’ve never technically said, “ok, maintenance time.”

    @pamjsa - based on everything I’ve heard, go by what you’re comfortable with. What I’ve been hearing most people do is a 5 to 10 pound range, although personally, 10 pounds seems like a big range. I think I’d want to make sure things don’t get out of control. I did hear someone on a podcast say that she stopped weighing herself, this was after she’d been at her goal weight awhile. Instead, she looks at her body every day to see if anything looks different, and uses how her clothes fit instead of the scale. She felt it was a better indicator of how she was doing, than a number on the scale. I’m nowhere near that, but I thought it was a intriguing approach.

    Trying to up my protein to 178g a day as my trainer said 1-1.5 grams per pound and I’m 178lbs. It’s proving challenging to do without having a way higher number of carbs since most of my vegetarian protein go to choices are not carb free, and I can only eat egg whites so many times a day. This will be a work in progress. Protein shakes may need to become a way of life.

    Wow, that is a lot of protein! I aim for 90+g and that's difficult even though I'm a meat eater.
