Roo2, so true. I feel maintenance is hard. I have actually had some years of success at maintenance, and then some meds worked against me and I think I got this mental thing that said, well I cannot help it because I eat healthy I gain, so why not eat badly. And that is what got me back to 190 when I had stayed in the 140's for years. So this this time if I have to deal with it, which is a possibility, I will stay the low-carb way because that seems the best process for me.
