Mark, what do you mean by cycling carb intake? I don't think I'm familiar with that term.
Doc, interesting link -- I enjoyed reading about post-workout muscle twitching. That happens to me a lot.
Progress: My boyfriend came home today! And, compared to the last time he was home (when I was at the most successful point in my weight loss -- after which I gained practically 3 lbs and then started this thread) I'm down 0.8 lbs! So the damage control I've implemented with your tips has certainly helped.
Angela, I'm particularly liking the appetite tips. I'm not feeling any huge ramifications, like the total disinterest in food that the author's Web site talks about, but my sugar cravings are mostly gone, too. I can feel hungry without feeling compelled to eat every fatty food in sight.
6 lbs to go!
