I wonder if my body has changed and that won't happen. I do notice a little excess skin that I didn't have when I last lost weight and reached goal. In any case, I've done this on a fairly but not severely low carbohydrate diet that also limits fat to a degree.
Congrats! Keep up the good work--I'm sure you'll reach your goal.
And I hear 'ya about the excess skin--the price we pay for our past "sins", I guess.
