Yes, I fell off the wagon, but only for 3 weeks. I'm now back on board, 15 pounds heavier plus an inch wider around the waistline. Because of the increased circumference, I can't blame carb induced water weight. But, that's okay. As I approach my goal weight, I need to know my limits. After reaching goal, I'm not going completely off the diet. For a maintenance plan, I intend to do further tinkering with carb cycles so that I can get the best of both worlds while keeping a good balance overall.
