Thank you everyone for your thoughts and advice. I'm going to try to stick with P3 in mIntenance and see where I go from there. I think the healthy fats once a day like avocado or cheese will be ok, I truly think it's the carbs.
Also - Ishbel - your pics are beautiful, congratulations on both your wedding and your pregnancy! Scotland is truly the most beautiful place I've ever been and you are lucky to have gone there also! Is your husband from Scotland?
