I worry about this, too. My calories now are pretty low - about 1200/day. If I eat to maintain according to the calculator, that's 1800 per day. That's a 50% increase!! I'm afraid that increasing my calories like that will be very triggering for me to go off plan. I am going to very gradually add calories back in - like 100 per month. I may lose more doing that until I get comfortable with it, but that wouldn't be the end of the world - hehe. I can always gain it back if I want to! lol

HW: 225, lost 75lbs in 2011 LW: 150
Losing again starting from 210 5/9/2017

No words of widsom. After years of reflection and dieting, I still don't have this thing figured out.
