I don't need to lose weight!

I did a very healthy thing today... took some measurements while going through the book Protein Power and found out my 'ideal' weight. And I found out that I'm smack in the middle of that range. Whaddya know? Apparently I don't need to lose weight at all... hello, plateau... but merely burn some of the fat and build more muscle. This did wonders for my self image!!!

If it weren't for YOU...

... I wouldn't have come back. By now, you might be wondering if I gained so much weight back that I've been avoiding y'all, or thinking I flat gave out. Actually, I've been reading. A lot. And much of it to do with going grain-free. So, I tried it, and wow... seriously felt pretty good. I also got very tired of eggs like every morning, and did experience what was probably carb flu. (Withdrawal, ha!) Anyway, I'm not 100% on my game plan from here on out... should I do grains and do complete Trim Healthy Mama or go sans beans, grains, and legumes? I would LOVE to hear all your thoughts!!! Oh, and I pretty much maintained weight at 138 during this whole time (except Christmas. Ahem.) I'm not sure if I put on muscle while losing fat? Maybe.
