    @Nicoles0305 I just eat until I'm not hungry or up to my maintenance calories, whichever is less. It is hard to eat up to the higher calorie level at first.

    It’s a struggle! I supplement with a lot of whey. Here’s what I had on the 168 day. (I was really active and ate about 2,200 calories. On a more normal 1700-ish calorie day I get closer to 120-130.) I can open my diary up too.

    Breakfast:
    Optimum nutrition vanilla whey - 24g
    Pb fit - 8g
    Rx bar - 12g

    Lunch:
    Cauliflower white bean tahini soup - 20g
    Crispy baked tofu - 9g

    Dinner:
    Mushroom stroganoff - 15g
    Seitan - 15g

    Snacks:
    Plain Icelandic yogurt - 19g
    Flax - 2g
    Berries - 1g
    Whey - 24g
    Kirkland chocolate peanut protein bar - 10g
    Halo top - 7g
    Dark chocolate - 0.8g
    Popcorn - 0.7g

    Wow, you get more in one meal than I do in a whole day. I guess I need to be more intentional.

    Good day yesterday, and my weekly calorie average is below maintenance, so I feel back in control. Sunday is soup day (my goal is to make a different soup every Sunday for a year—we’ll see), so I’m trying to decide…. In January, it was minestrone, mulligatawny, Morrocan harira, and creamy chicken tortilla. Come to think of it, I might have to repeat a few! 😁

    2/07 - 179.2, 179.5
    I settled on Vegged-out Pumpkin and Back Bean Soup last night. I subbed out one can of black beans for a can of cannellinis, and added half a cup each of green beans and corn. Delish, very low calorie, and very satisfying. I’m enjoying my “soup of the week” routine!

    2/08 - 178.8, 179.3
    Creeping back down. Now to keep it up. I did snarf some Triscuits last night when I got home from doggy school—skipped dinner and I was hungry. Today all planned. Reading your posts keeps me inspired—thank you!


    2/09 - 178.6, 179.1
    Another good day yesterday, and I have today’s menu all planned. My “exercise” will be pulling everything out of the walk-in mess, er, closet in my office to set up a new 5-shelf unit I got and then organize everything. I know that sounds thrilling—but it is because I have not had enough shelves and the jumble scares me every time I open the door! Ha!

    2/10 - 178.6, 178.9
    I keep reminding myself that a no-gain day is a good day, and slow weight loss lasts. 🙂 I’ve been catching up on a bunch of to-dos the past few days. Got my new shelves up and the mess off the floor in my office closet—yay! And I’ve been blocking some knitted items I finished a few months ago but never blocked, including this lace scarf. I’ve also been on a hat kick, aiming for “monthly hats” plus a few others. Here’s my Valentine hat for February. 🧶

    2/11 - 177.6, 178.5
    Finally! I actually went quite a bit over my calorie goal yesterday, but my weekly average is below, and I’ve found that sometimes a one-day increase pushes a loss, as long as I don’t get carried away. Back on track today.

    2/12 - 178.6, 178.5
    Okie dokie.
