I think I am going back to logging my food again. Medifast has a good foodlogger that already has all its meals in a dropdown menu so I use that rather than Sparkpeople when I am on the Medifast plan. I have done quite a bit of logging in the past, just for curiosity's sake, but it isn't really necessary because all the Medifast meals are about equal in nutrition. It's the Lean and Green meal that I prepare myself, along with fats, condiments, and an optional snack that can really alter my stats. I find I lose best when my carbs are around 80 and calories around 900. I think in general I stay closer to 95 g carbs and 1000-1100 calories per day if I am not paying much attention to my condiments and snack. I really want to break through that 200 pound barrier back into the 190's. I am staying off the scale until Sunday, logging my food and watching my carbs better, and I am taking a few days off exercising as well to see if that changes anything. Frankly, I am starting to get to a point where I am pretty desperate to get back down 20 more pounds.
