Fasting being flexible may be what helps me the most. Also it feels like there is no falling off the wagon guilt. When you fast you are allowed to feast. (With in reason...)
I am finding that I feel much better in a fasted state then in the fed state. Physically but more importantly mentally.
Good luck with your upcoming challenges yoyo.

ITA! Thanks for your words of wisdom. I just want to eat without over thinking my meal.

I have been doing this WOE for a week and I have lost almost 4 pounds. I said I wasn't going to weigh because I have 2 sets of scales (one in my trailer and one in my home, I work away from home). I weighed last on the trailer scales 2 weeks ago and in that time I have lost 3.6 pounds. I will take that. I did not do much that first week as far as weight loss went so it has to be the IF.

All right Pam that is great news.
Been slacking on my window. Scale shows it but more importantly I feel very bloated.

Hi, folks,

Thanks, Lin. Simplicity is one of the best features of OMAD.

Congrats, Pam! I'm glad you are getting such great feedback on the scale.

Ubee, have you considered adding structure to your new window? It might help tighten up the loose edges.

I am having no trouble sticking with OMAD, but I've been eating out (or take-in) most days (activities out and house guest). I am also hoping to figure out a trip we can take while my daughter has a short break between school and coop. The scale readings have been choppy, probably due to higher carbs than usual. If my weight goes up a bit, so be it. I may do a stint of keto when things calm down again if I need to lose some excess, but my experience is that OMAD limits the weight gain in periods like this (e.g. a couple pounds over the holiday season or vacation instead of 5 - 10 pounds).

I won't detail what I've been eating lately as it would sound too much like food porn, lol.

yoyo, you hit the nail on the head. I had just gotten it figured out that I do need more structure.
I just want to also add that I love this WOE so we can relax on occasions and not panic as the scales jumps around. That it is part of this WOE, the fed state and the fasted state.
I am going to alternate between OMAD and a 6 hour window where I eat at 11am and then another meal before 5. No snacking as for me that is just impulse eating. I am really trying to listen to my body. Some days I am hardly hungry and others I want a little more. Yesterday was OMAD and I feel so much better this morning. The scale is back down and that gross bloated feeling is gone also.
How is everyone else doing?
