New here and posted in the welcome forum. I found em2wl over the weekend. So glad I found this site. I will have a couple of questions later but here's the background:

August 28, 2012 I decided to make changes. I was pushing 300#.

Began reducing intake but didn't count calories. Instead, I followed a 40/30/30 plan my mom has used successfully. I didn't get very hungry but I lost about 65# and stalled in 2015.

Late 2015 I opted to cut calories and went to 1900 then 1775/ day. Starved to death? Yes but I dropped 33# and hit goal. I worked out 5 day on strength and did cardio for 30 min. I couldnt sustain it and gained weight w/out explanation. Then, I binged a few times. I've almost regained the 33.

Time for a change. I have 5 full weels of documented steady weight eating 2220 calories. I bumped it up to 2320 this week. Scales are showing it but I am sleeping better already. My current trainer supports this and although she's not familiar with em2wl, this is what she has been teaching pretty much. She explains it a little differently but it's similar concepts. Once I found the Quick Start summary, she said 'she's my nutritional twin.'

From the Starter Kit link, I programmed my stats:

Male
219#
43 years
69" tall
3-5x's workout per week (plus a hikes when cooler)
I chose 'body recomp/maintenance' as Goal.

Did I make the right choice on the Goal selection?
