It is actually great that you've stabilized for now. I know you want to get 20 more pounds off, but realize that what you've done so far is pretty much impossible to do for 99+% of people. This prolonged caloric deficit also makes your body's hormones go haywire. So it is a really great idea to stay at maintenance for a while to let them normalize; this will allow you to be able to see results more easily with your deficit diet when the time comes. Congrats again on this amazing feat, and don't worry about the current weight plateau.

If you are curious why this is, this is likely your stomach shrinking a bit from its previous somewhat more distended state. One important signal for hunger and satiety (among several) is "mechanical" - as you - literally - fill up you stomach it sends the brain signals that cause reduction of the feeling of hunger. Now that your stomach has shrunk a bit, it takes less food to get the stomach to send the signal.
Speaking of signals to the brain vis-à-vis satiety, it's been noted in the lab that chewing well also sends satiety signals to the brain - so chew your food well like we were taught as children... certain digestive enzymes are also produced in saliva, particularly those that break down protein so the more you chew the more you're going to digest well.

Glassynails FAT weight as of 4 minutes ago is ---> 213.8 (6ft) . Am on a new mission to get back towards 200lbs (and under hopefully). Eating light, eliminating or cutting back on sweets and no soda. Seltzer water is my friend.

Great, and what I'd give to be 6 feet tall.

Believe me, I'd had enough. Chicken adobo with rice, a buttered biscuit, cranberry sauce, asparagus, salad and a piece of pumpkin pie with hand whipped cream. Polished off the leftovers tonight. :)

Nice. The thing that strikes me the most about your weight-loss journey is your consistency (and that you have a clear mind-set about what you're doing). I respect that.

It occurs to me that the successful study of the guitar is similar.

Thank you, Lawler. I know that the weight loss has slowed down, but I will keep on keepin' on. At least 20 more pounds. I'm still too heavy for my height.
