    190 at your height sounds about right to me. Congrats! How long have you maintained now?

    That is awesome! 2.5 years. That's no yo-yo.

    You are thin but you look great. Do you still get amazed when you do things that reminds you of the weight you've lost such as buying 'thin-cut clothes?

    To a good degree, yes, although I have in some ways moved on.

    I'm looking forward to that day when I can do the same.

    How else did it change your life? Apart from feeling thinner I mean.

    Losing weight has given me so much confidence in myself. I know I can do anything I set my mind to so I've decided to continue working into my 70's and I just began thinking about starting a home business. I notice things that would have bothered me in the past is just a passing thought now. My stress level is low and the inner peace I feel is amazing and has given me a new perspective on life. As others on OMAD have said....sleep is better, energy is high, and my attitude has changed.

    Take care, my friend....I appreciate you. I watched a couple of your videos last night and I learn something each time I watch them. You are a wise man.

    Thank you for the reply. This is what I am hoping to achieve. I'm hoping to get more confidence. I'm plagued with self doubt in my life and I'm working hard to get rid of it. It's my main 2017 goal. I think losing the weight would definitely help.

    Wow 2.5 years in maintenance is amazing, I'm so inspired!!!

    What's the difference between the months you lose 8-10 lbs and the months you gain weight? Is it not abiding by the one meal rule? Or eating more at that meal? Just curious. Thanks!
  • rayrhoads22rayrhoads22 Posts: 9Member Member Posts: 9Member Member
    Also this will sound weird but how are you looking physically now? More muscle? Less fat? Fitter? Etc?
  • blambo61blambo61 Posts: 4,372Member Member Posts: 4,372Member Member
    I haven't lost 8-10 lbs a month in a long time (if ever). I haven't ever done the one plate rule and that is probably why. I lose better with no cheat days and low carbs.
  • rayrhoads22rayrhoads22 Posts: 9Member Member Posts: 9Member Member
    Oh, I was asking "ArguablySamson," his thread last year showed 8-9 lb loss from aug to sept I think. Then 6 lbs gain one month. I'm just interested in what's different. Thankssss!
  • arguablysamsonarguablysamson Posts: 1,534Member Member Posts: 1,534Member Member
    Weight will fluctuate. That should never be a surprise. I can drop and lose some 15 or 20 lbs up or down in very short time, and you will be able to as well. The bear has the answers: cycling...eating more and eating less...all in good time! It's fun and it's living!
  • SavedByGrace26356SavedByGrace26356 Posts: 544Member Member Posts: 544Member Member
    I'm going through the gaining losing cycle right now. One day I'm up a few pounds and then lose again. Eating the same. Not stressing though because I know the weight loss will continue eventually. I've studied your posts and videos Joe and almost know them by heart. I know what to expect and have no worries.

    I love eating OMAD :)

    Updated. Mind you all, I now right in the middle of my bulk-a-thon, which I plan to carry out for the next six months...while maintaining fairly lean body mass, of course. Separate post to follow.
