I did it! I made it to my goal weight on September 1st. So it took me just less than 6 months to lose 32 pounds on the DASH Diet Weight Loss Solution.

I wish I had something brilliant to say. I'm mostly just tickled. And looking forward to maintenance.

So what's next? I'm adding just 100 calories per day right now, to see how that affects my weight. I am looking into adding calories by incorporating chia seeds, and maybe some additional protein into my diet, and things to jazz up the veggies I eat. Nothing fancy, nothing extreme. I eat below the SP recommended range of carbs, but not very low. This works best for me with my blood glucose and keeps my head on straight as far as my priorities for meal planning. Also, I'm working out a lot, because I'm training for a Spartan Sprint 5K obstacle course race.

Any successful maintainers have thoughts to share?

I love chia seeds. My favorite is to mix them into yogurt. Way to go powering on with the mud run training:)
