Well I think I am there.  No weight loss in Sept.  This is a first month since surgery where I have not lost any weight.  I wanted to get to my ultimate goal of 130, but I think my body has said this is enough.   I am kind of tired of the weight loss mindset.  I figured I have worked hard to get where I am and I don't think 4 pounds is going to make a difference in my life.  I want to feel satisfied and enjoy all the things that I can now do.  The problem is I don't really know much about maintaining a healthy weight.  I'm thinking if I keep eating the way I am I will stay at this weight.   I still weigh my food, but can eat more now than before.    I would love to hear from others  who are now at this stage of their WLS journey.

I'll get back with you in six months.  In six months, I'm going to be in maintenance, I think.  :)

I'm a rookie and one with a pouch. Doesn't make one difference since we all end up in that final permanent stage. You seem to be in good control of your nutrition. I'm thinking, keep on with weighing/logging your daily food intake and enjoy your new figure.
I'll return in seven-eight months. Wonder what I'll have to share then.
