The only things I've done is log what I eat, keeping protein up as high as possible and carbs not over 50%, not worrying about fat since I eat lean meat and fried foods are very rare. I'm not anti-carb, it's just the easiest place for me to cut calories and not feel like I'm "missing out" on foods I like. I either weigh or measure everything. I know how much all my cups, bowls and mugs hold to make the measuring easier. Most of my calories are healthy ones, but not all. I do allow myself 150-250 "junk" calories, a good portion of that is my daily coffee. The rest is a small dessert (2 oreos, Fudgesicle, mini ice cream sandwich, stuff like that). I exercise when I can, ideally this would be 1 hour 3x a week, I was doing well at that and need to get back on that horse. Medical issues have been setting me back lately, I haven't gained any weight back, but haven't lost either and I feel bigger around the middle without the gym time. It's OK though, at this point I feel comfortable in my clothes. 135 would be bikini time, and if I end up staying where I'm at, I think that would be all right too. It's certainly better than where I was, and I feel like myself again for the first time in yers.
