Doing a 10 pound "tweak" having gained that since I did my first round of IP this time last year. Happy to report I lost 4 of those pounds in one week - YAY!! And down 2% bodyfat!! :carrot:

I know some people were saying it's harder to restart, and I'm sure it can be, but for me the biggest motivator is not wanting to kick myself out of ketosis!!

It was Thanksgiving weekend in Canada this weekend too, and that was a challenge, but I just kept thinking KETOSIS, KETOSIS, KETOSIS. That's the magic word for me every day!

Great job, you will have the extra weight off in no time. It is good to hear that some people don't gain much once in maintenance.

I have a 5 pound limit, every time I gain 5 pounds I go back on for a week or two. I'm amazed at how fast you can gain 5 pounds. :-( I've done it in one week and then it's taken 2-3 to get if off. I wish I understood why you can gain it so fast but it takes 2-3 times as long to get off. . . I guess if I knew that secret I'd be a billionaire!
