    You lost that water weight gain fast, just like many of us told you. That's how it works. Isn't it awesome?!

    The Friday before last I had a great weigh-in, then I enjoyed margaritas and lined the glass with margarita salt goodness, had some salted "hint of lime" tortilla chips, and my weigh in the next day was up nearly four pounds. The water weight clung to me like a child with separation anxiety issues until Tuesday. By Wednesday, all if it was gone, by Friday I was down 3.8 pounds--for a total of over 7 pounds in less than 3 or 4 days, lol. :-D

    Yes, our bodies do act amazingly fast! We should pat it sometimes and tell it how awesome it is.

    Yep, he'll be back down in no time :-)

    My worse temporary weight gain was when I went hunting for a couple of days and ate a lot each day of salty food. Between not going to the bathroom much, water gained from the salt, the extra food in me, and the extra water retained due to swelling from walking many miles, I gained something like 10-lbs in 3-days. I think I lost it all in the next 3-4 days.

    (OMAD Day 004) *201.20* [-43.80 lbs] *1,608 CALS* 44g Carbs 24 HOUR FAST
    A little overnight loss and still moving back down closer to my pre-vacation weight. I will stick to the 24 hour OMAD plan today again until I completely stall out. I am still losing even though higher calorie intake but I don't expect that to continue. Not pictured in the photo are the (2) Oatmega bars I had as part of the meal as well.

    I am going to make my way to the gym today just to start getting acclimated. I will focus only on weight exercises and steer clear of the treadmill and other cardio machines. I want to focus on increasing my overall body strength while still losing the stored body fat.

    I feel really good with a lot of energy reserves in the tank so an extended fast would not be a problem at all at this time. I feel one coming on very soon and I am actually look forward to it.

    (OMAD Day 005) *200.40* [-44.60 lbs] 44g Carbs 24 HOUR FAST *1,687 CALS*
    A nice continued loss and back down to pre-vacation weight. I am having breakfast today as my meal and then will be back to 1:00PM as my norm tomorrow and then after that. What is not pictured in the meal are the (2) Oatmega bars I had. Clearly knocking those down to (2) bars can see me in the yellow of the keto meter but I have not been able to get back down to red again. Amazing that I was red for nearly 75 days in a row but now to get back in I still have some work to do. I know one good zero carb day or an extended fast to do the trick and then should stay in the red so long as I stay under or at 50 grams of carbs. I'm not too concerned with that as I am still moving back down.

    I’m going to use this forum I started to re-focus my efforts in 2018. I managed to stay around my low plus 10 lbs so it has not been all doom and gloom since I stopped posting. I just feel I’m now ready to continue on my journey to reach the next leg down towards my goal weight of 175.00. I’m ready now to recommit to a more focused Intermittent fasting cycle and log my progress here. See ya tomorrow!

    ROUND #001 (2017 EOY Re-set/Re-sync)
    ✅ 12/29 9:00P > 12:00A (03 HRS)
    ✅ 12/30 12:00A > 12:00A (24 HRS)
    ✅ 12/31 12:00A > 1:00P (13 HRS)
    RESULT: 40 HOURS 210.60

    I started my refocus on the last few days of 2017 in order to get a head start leading into the new year. I have modified my original OMAD plan to include a more extended Intermittent fast that goes from 23 hours of a typical OMAD plan to a full 38 Hours IF followed by one or MAYBE two meals consisting of a more KETO mix of foods with a greater focus on protein intake and near elimination of carbs.

    ROUND #002 (New Year/Rose Bowl)
    ✅ 12/31 5:00P > 12:00A (07 HRS)
    ✅ 01/01 12:00A > 12:00A (24 HRS)
    ✅ 01/02 12:00A > 1:00P (13 HRS)
    TOTAL: 44 HOURS* 207.00

    This round was a little more difficult to maneuver as I was dealing with New Years Eve plus a trip to the Rose Bowl. In the end I prevailed and due to red eye flights I had to extend my fast to a full 44 Hours which is longer than I wanted. I ended the fast by refueling with a nice 12 Oz Sirloin followed by 2 6 Oz burgers with cheese later in the day.
