Ooh La La, I wouldn't worry about it too much you've made quite the accomplishment already. I will advise to try to follow stabilization to a "T" as much as you can. I've been trying to follow it but have strayed away more times then I care to admit. I have gotten back to the weight I was when I started stabilization but that is because I cheated a bit. Okay I am lying--I cheated a lot!!! (Isn't that terrible, I don't feel that sorry about it either. : p)
When I wasn't cheating I lost about 3 lbs. When I started cheating like eating alot of popcorn and a candy bar instead of a cup of popcorn, that's when my problems began.
I've had a few slip ups and I know I will have to find some sort of balance. However, I feel I will figure it out. I used to worry about the weight coming back but not so much anymore. I feel like by worrying about it coming back, is like opening a door and welcoming it come back. It's like you are mentally setting yourself up to fail. So instead yes I might have the candy bar twice but its going to be a month or two before I eat it again. Plus when I eat I try to look for healthier choices and watch the portions. Pkus I know the consequences for my misdeeds-more water, more exercise etc.
I know I am all over the place with my thoughts at this moment, but I've heard my center say you could still loose several pounds during stabilization but I've also read you could also see some weight fluctuations (it said so on the food sheets where you add food in.) If you see fluctuations, maybe that is your body getting used to the new foods.
I am happy with myself at:
