THANK YOU SO MUCH for your response. You are a life saver. I have been eating around a 1/2 cup of food but i thought that I Courtney had said to keep it at 1/4 cup...which I thought was unreasonable.
I have basically the same philosophy as you do regarding maintenance...I am 5'7". When I first had surgery my goal weight was 150. I just naturally got down to 132...which was low even by my standards. I weighed 135 when I was in my 30's. As time when on I stablized at 135 and I was happy. I mostly watched my portion sizes and tried to get as much protein as possible. I really didn't count calories, protein grams, etc. I don't weigh often but I said that if I got to 140 that I was in the 'danger zone'. Well, I've made it to 140 so I've got to get back on track. What bothers me the the most is what and how I am eating. Some of those bad eating behaviors are creeping back in....and that is the cause of the problem.. the # on the scale is just the symptom!
thanks for the details around the calories, protein, etc. That will help me a BUNCH.
BTW...I voted for your son's essay. It was really good. Good luck with the scholarship.
