    You PASSED!! That must feel amazing! I knew you would with all that studying you were doing. It always feels good to get refocused!! April goals coming up!

    You're so sweet. It did feel amazing...still does. My hands were shaking for about 45 minutes after I passed. It was really tough and I'm so glad it's over.

    Way to go! I've noticed at the end of the day when I'm hungriest and I've got something stressful to do at work, that I sometimes have to eat cause I just can't get the work done if I don't so I know what your talking about. Had one of those days yesterday.

    Hey guys. I've been in the throes of tax season crunch time the past week. Between studying for my exam and taxes, I either haven't had the opportunity or haven't had the energy to socialize and follow everyone's OMAD journeys. After April 18, things should get back to normal pretty quickly.

    My weight has been up and down within the same 6 pound range for over a month. I've found myself to be unusually hungry all day at work the last week. Not sure why but I've stuck to OMAD anyway. Not an easy task lately but I'm not going to let my old habits run my life again... so I just do what I have to do.

    One of these days, I'm going to catch up on all of your threads. Miss chatting with my fellow OMADers. Oh, and welcome to the newbies. TTYL

    You've done really well. Some of my most difficult times are when I'm stressed at work and really need to concentrate.

    Morning morning!
    This needs to be quick...
    I'm at 262 this morning. Haven't seen that number on the scale in 12 years!

    New development... I'm dating again. Haven't dated in about 5 years. A long time to go without romantic affection of any kind. I'm cautiously optimistic and glowing. Girls... he's 6'4", olive-skinned, muscular, miraculously finds me completely irresistable, lives a mile away, is in uniform every day, SMART, polite... do I need to go on? Lol It's like I'm living in a dream, or romantic comedy. So foreign to me but I'm not complaining a bit. Even if it doesn't last, I'm savoring every moment.

    Gotta run...tax hell awaits for a bit longer. Miss you guys. Until next time...

    <3 I'm so happy when good things happen to good people!

    Congrats on your weight loss.

    I know they say that weight is just a number but I'm sure its giving you the confidence you need to attract these things into your life :) You deserve it, but just deserving things doesn't get us things. Sometimes we need the added confidence to believe we deserve these things to have them.

    Hope you have many fun dates :) You deserve it :)

    I hadn't even thought of it that way. You're right! And thank you. :)

    Aww, shucks. :blush: I think you're right. My confidence has been slowing increasing with the weight loss, then got another boost when I passed that wicked test. This gentleman (we'll call him X--his first initial) has increased it 10-fold. I've been walking around with a stupid grin on my face for a few days.

    I haven't told him that I only eat once a day, but he drinks Coke a couple times a day, so he has no healthy/unhealthy legs to stand on. I don't think he'll criticize OMAD, but it's nice to have some ammunition anyway.

    I had to defend OMAD on Sunday to my aunt that is a long-term Weight Watchers fan. She said, "That's not a healthy way to lose weight. Does your doctor know you're doing that?" insert eyeroll here.

    To the other ladies...thank you for being happy for me. I appreciate the support and encouragement. You guys rock.

    I'm going to update my profile pic to one I took last night for X. My face is really slimming down you guys! I love it.

    TTYL!

    Eyeroll here too! I don't intend to tell my family. When we have our family reunion in July, I'll just say I'm not hungry in the evenings anymore.
