Just catching up - sounds like everyone is doing great. I'm trying to get outta my rut. I just read Pam's post, and I have to add my 2 cents. I definitely experience a "starvation mode" if I cut my calories too low. I lose a few pounds and then my weight will stabilize. If I eat less, my body just adjusts to needing less. There's nothing more frustrating than eating less and GAINING weight! I do much better with a moderate restriction most days, with some low cal days (less than 1000) and some high cal days thrown in about every 2 weeks. I am in perimenopause, which is interesting and I don't know whether to wish it would end soon or be glad that I still have to worry about all the complications.
