After bouncing back and forth and coming to a stall, I decided to take a ten day maintenance break. After nine months, I was just a little tired and going over my calorie limit more often. I'm on day four and not so stressed about every detail. I changed my settings from losing 2 pounds a week (which I wasn't doing anyway) to .5 pounds a week loss, which upped my calories from 1200 to 1590. It's crazy that 390 calories can make such a difference. I'm so much more relaxed, even thought I'm still measuring and weighing my food. I'm eating back half my exercise calories as well. And...I'm down .8 pounds. This is a new low for me.
I did a maintenance break last October and it was so helpful and really jump started my body into losing mode again. I'm 35.2 pounds away from my goal weight and almost 70 pounds down. Just looking at those numbers, I'm almost 66% of the way there! I have a big trip planned in May and I'm hoping to be down another 10 pounds by then.

To add to the yogurt discussion, I’m not a fan. I think it’s a texture issue. But I use Greek yogurt sweetened with stevia in a Hungry Girl yogurt bowl recipe that is really good. The texture is not an issue because it’s mixed up with a bunch of different stuff.
