    Hi Kirby- I understand about not eating enough. I worked so hard to lose. I don’t want to lose more but I sure don’t want to gain either.

    I also tend to try to save plenty of calories to snack at night, then work out and get some more and can’t snack that much. I am forcing the issue now at eating more but here I am 7:30 pm and with the after dinner biking I just did for 50 minutes burning at least 200 calories I still have 800 left to eat. Just to used to running at a deficit.

    I’ll get there though. Wishing you all the best on your journey.

    Success(es)/struggle(s) of the week:
    Stress has made it a struggle to eat enough to maintain. Especially since hiking and the gym are my main stress relief! I'm happy with the weight I lost, but don't want to go any lower.

    Success/Struggles: I'm going up and down on my daily weigh-ins more than I'm used to, but I'm back to the middle of my maintenance range this week. My husband's going in for minor surgery tomorrow, and I think it's water retention from stress. We've also been watching "The Great British Baking Show" together in the evenings, and that's not making it easy to avoid evening snacking :)

    Wishing everyone a successful week!

    @mph323 - the bolded made me laugh out loud. I’m in the UK and a big fan of the Great British Bake-Off. I have to time when I watch it so I’m not tempted! Glad the series (and now the Xmas specials) are over!
