Not gaining is good. Practicing maintenance isn’t a bad thing. Way to make improvements to your plan and push forward. Remember perfectionism can be a powerful nemesis. It’s ok not to be perfect all of the time, and there is no harm in trying to be perfect every time.

That is flattering and pretty scary. What would I do? In the past I would fail. In more recent time I would just not allow my MANY mistakes to stop me.
The goal is for everyone to become their own expert. That is how I want to guide you because I can't tell anyone but me what will definitely work or at least what will work for 230 pounds. I don't even know if I am enough of an expert yet on me to get to some sort of a goal and stay there.

I hope it’s ok to jump in here. I’ve been using MFP since last Christmas, but I’m mostly just a lurker on the boards. I found a small, closed group here that has been very helpful, but it’s not very active right now. I’ve grown to enjoy sharing this experience with others, so I thought I’d introduce myself here.
I’ll be 42 next week, and I’m 6 ft tall.
GW: 194 (for now, anyway... That’s still a few pounds in “overweight” BMI territory, so I may adjust it when I get closer. Even that seemed nearly impossible when I started, but now I’m more than halfway there!)

No numbers from me today. The spreadsheet has to be rebooted with a new starting weight and I am not eating a deficit for at least another week. My weight has continued to climb from water weight which is disappointing. I was kind of hoping those days were behind me. So far I am up around 9 pounds from my post surgical weight.
This whole thing will be like starting anew when I go back in a deficit. I will go through a couple of weeks of water weight loss, my TDEE is different, my rate of loss will be different, and it will take about 6 weeks to get clean numbers again.
