Hi, all! I haven't posted in a while. I decided to try 5:2 or 4:3 and on those days, stick to OMAD. I love OMAD, it wasn't a hardship most of the time, and I enjoy the taste of food much better when...

Journaling is probably doing some good. Studies have shown that people who keep gratitude journals actually increase their happiness over time. You're not giving up, so that's a positive in itself.

That is the wisest weight loss statement I've read in a long time. Obviously, I totally agree with it. For instance, I find that I get full faster and stay full longer if I have some combination of...

I love when I'm truly hungry before a meal (not starving, but hungry). Not only am I able to better identify what I truly want to eat, but I enjoy the food so much more. The power of habit is SO...

I do the same amount of exercise (maybe even more) at maintenance as I did while losing. In fact, I have seen a slow creep upward over the past 1 1/2 years or so, and I think at least part of it is...

To me, this is key to IF: Being sure that your meals are enjoyable. I find that when I focus TOO much on health over taste, it's a sure way for me to perma-snack between meals. If I eat something...

I sweat plenty, but I'm only on my TD at home (because I work there half the time), so it's not an issue. But I still use a fan (and open the window during the fall) because I don't like being hot.
