Hooray a new thread!
Thanks everyone for the welcome back. And congratulations Marci on surpassing your goal! What an accomplishment!
Have been holding steady through my first two weeks back on maintenence. Highest I've peaked is 175, which was after I ate a stir fry with soy sauce, so I think the salt got me. With water and a low-ish carb day I get back down to 173. I'm tracking everything, staying right around 1600 calories, keeping my macros at 30% protein, 20% carbs, 40% fat in line with the recommendations for an endomorphic body type (naturally broad, packs in fat around the abdomen).
This article was really helpful to me in understanding how to set my macros: http://www.ftsnutrition.com/macro-ratios/#.VZWch_lViko
Seems to be working so far! Still need to figure out how to get the exercise in.
Happy belated Canada Day to our Canadian folks, and happy 4th to the US! Anyone planning some good food for the holiday? I'm making a blueberry pie and some homemade ice cream (keeping my portion to just a taste...12 egg yolks this recipe calls for! yikes!).
Have a great weekend everyone.
