Do I need a reset?

RE: Do I need a reset?
So, then yes, you were very likely eating above your *suppressed* TDEE as you were making those increases. The good news is, that by now your metabolism is hopefully catching up and that loss has stopped or at least is slowing down. Are you still seeing gains at this time? Also, don't forget that as the breastfeeding slows down or stops you will need to cut back on those extra calories you have added for that...

RE: Do I need a reset?
Apparently half of my reply was lost. I went on to mention that my weight hasn't seemed to stabilize but I'm watching it this week to see. Also, im not sure I'm adding the right amount for breastfeeding. He's almost 8 months old and eats some solids but is still mostly nursing. I guess in the back of my mind I'm fearful that once I starting my cut I still won't lose fat and all this added weight will just stick around. But I am so eager to do this thing right! Thanks for all the help. You surely are an em2wl Angel!

RE: Do I need a reset?
If after eating at 2700 for 6 weeks you are still seeing slow, consistent gains, then you may be eating slightly over your TDEE (or your TDEE may be still functioning at a slightly decreased level...) Either way, it is nothing to stress about at all. Any time at (or above) your TDEE "counts" towards your time spent resetting. Like you said, watch it for another week, and if you continue to see slow gains, then just drop it back by 100 calories and see what happens.

And there is no reason to fear that you will not lose the fat. Once you find your true TDEE, then eating at a small deficit will result in fat loss. You may have to juggle your numbers a bit to find that "sweet spot", but it will happen.
