    I've gotten off the wagon this last week and it seems if I get off for more than a couple days, it is a little hard getting back. I can go 1 or two days at 16:8 and it doesn't seem to effect me much but longer and I have to get my brain re-wired or something.

    That's interesting - I am going to have to remind myself of that when I go to my next eat-and-drink-fest conference in Sept. I know I need to stick to one meal a day when I am there - and in fact, that's exactly how I used to deal with them, I've just not been doing it for the past couple of years.

    This is so mental, I remember when it was second nature, now I can't OMAD to save my life. Saturday and Sunday were both rough, I had lunch with my parents Saturday with the plan being to skip dinner, didn't work. Then yesterday I made it until 5 PM for my first meal, but then kept eating until about 10:00. It's a new day, and it is easier at work so let's see how today goes!

    So you had a 5 hour eating window yesterday - I think that's pretty good... Weekends are definitely harder for me, I tend to allow myself a longer eating window. I don't always use it, but I don't count it as not doing OMAD if I eat for a little longer.

    OMAD has been going well this week. No numbers yet because my old scale finally died, and my new one is 5 lbs higher. Once I get back down to 215 on the new one, I will start putting numbers up, but is a mental block for me to be at 220 again...
    Good workouts going on and OMAD is clicking again, I love the simplicity once your body adjusts.

    Awesome news! (Sucks about the scale though! :))

    There sure is a mental part of this. I'v I get out of sink, I struggle a little to get back into it also. I think eating very low carb salad type meals for lunch (or just a scoop of whey protein powder in a drink) is a good way to go tell getting back into OMAD.

    It was mentally hard, but since last Monday I have done very well with OMAD, and it is already simple again.
  • minigrrllminigrrll Member Posts: 1,590 Member Member Posts: 1,590 Member
    Great news!!

    This is a nice reminder to me that one week in does not mean I'm in total control and will never go back to gaining. Life is about to change for me as a big move approaches and summer vacation, la la land, ends. Back to work. It really does take mental energy. Congratulations on grappling with it and finding your mojo. B)

    So this was my progress with OMAD…then I went to Disney. I sort of maintain there (12 days), at least I didn’t go overboard. I found it very difficult to start OMAD again when I got back. In the midst of all of that, I also got a new scale which reads (correctly) 5 lbs higher than my old scale.
    Post Disney, no OMAD looked like this.
    7 July 17 – 215.6 (old Scale)
    11 July 17 – 220 (New Scale)
    I started OMAD again, and joined a 10 day challenge on MFP which gave me some really good insight.

    7/12- 219.6 - OMAD Yesterday
    7/13- 218.2 - OMAD Yesterday
    7/14- 218.6 - Loose OMAD, had a few snacks before my meal - Good workout
    7/15- 216.0
    7/16- 217
    7/17- 216.4
    7/18- 215.6-OMAD yesterday
    7/19- 217- OMAD, with late night snack - Yesterday
    7/20- 217- OMAD with late night snack – Yesterday
    Now I know that weighing daily will fluctuate, but look at the days I had a strict OMAD, and the days my window was a little too long, or I snacked before bed! I was hesitant to post this, but decided the data was worth sharing for the ones who are trying OMAD, or still a little skeptical. I also workout (Freeweights, heavy) 3 times a week.

    You were right to post it, it's great information!

    I have found the same thing with my weight. there is a difference when you do strict OMAD than when you veer off a bit. I will be on vacation next week, but I will surely get back to strict OMAD upon return.
  • minigrrllminigrrll Member Posts: 1,590 Member Member Posts: 1,590 Member
    Very interesting data indeed...

    I did this same thing twice last year. I was good tell spring break then got off track (210 at beginning of spring break). I gained back 10-lbs (220). Went back to OMAD and lost the 10 plus 5 more (to 205). Then I had a lot of gout issues and other things and I went up to 215. Since then I've gotten down to 205 once again and am about 207 right now. I've maintained a long time now without gaining and I believe the difference this time compared to the last two times was this time if I was eating lunch or breakfast, I would keep it low carb. Dinner all was allowed. That routine has allowed me to maintain for a very long time when I gained when I wasn't doing that.

    Great data to show. A week at Disney threw me off too!
