    Hi guys, sorry for being MIA - I love y'all I just got sick of being so focused on my diet and food - still OMADing - no gain or loss so all is well....it's a crazy week, had a near death experience last Friday (there was a pickup in front of my on the freeway, and their truck bed cover flew off and came through my windshield and a giant metal bar came through a few inches from my head) and then what i thought was a gallbladder attack almost sent me to the ER but an ultrasound later, turns out I just have a big ole' kidney stone AND a complex cyst on my kidney which now needs a CT etc.....

    It's just crazy and I haven't had time to focus on food and eating but no gain so I'll take it :)

    Thank God you are OK Steph, I know that had to be a frightening experience. I understand the need for a break and wish you well with the kidney stone and cyst. It's awesome that you are maintaining well.

    OMG! Thank goodness you are A-OK! <3 Hope the Docs will help you with your kidney stone issues...my Mom had that and she had to go for an op. Good luck <3
    I know what you mean as my weight is not moving either.

    Glad you're ok Steph, that's very scary <3

    I've been dealing with kidney stones for over 6 months, and been to the hospital 3 times for pain 🙁

    I hope that cyst turns out to be nothing to worry about. ((Hugs))

    HI GUYSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS :) Just checking in :)

    Holidays showed me gaining a cpl pounds which is to be expected :) Since I've been maintaining so successfully, I'm gonna go ahead and try to lose the last 20 vanity pounds :) Goal is 140 by May 7th (Ced and Emmy's bday LOL).

    That's about 1.4 pounds a week which is AGGRESSIVE at this weight but I think it's doable.

    I've been on a 3 day a week full fasting schedule...I fast Monday and Thurs and then either Tues or Weds depending on which day works better that week. My eating day during the week I OMAD. Then I've been basically 16:8 Fri-Sun free eating in that window :)

    I know this sounds so extreme LMAO but I've just figured out by now that full fasting works better for me...I'm an all or nothing gal apparently LMAO

    Gonna go catch up with everyone but I'm sure I'll be around more often while I'm losing :)

    <3

    Awesome job maintaining during this crazy time. It is not extreme if it is working for you and you are able to sustain it. The last 20 pounds may come off slower, but they will come off with consistency which you have proven to have. Way to go, you are doing great!

    Yeah it's fairly sustainable for a loss schedule but it probably wouldn't be for maintenance LMAO

    I'm pushing hard til May and then I'll go back on a more relaxed schedule, even if I have to lose slower after that....having an end in sight makes my day-to-day easier :)

    Happy to see you back 😊
    I cannot even do one water fasting day anymore let alone 3 in one week, but I know you will do great. Good luck with your fasting plan 💜

    Well it helps that I never got out of the habit - I've been doing a least one full 48 hour fast each week no matter what (even the weeks of Christmas and Thanksgiving) because I know the moment I let it be optional, I'll fall out of the habit because then it's not a real lifestyle ya know? :)

    I got out of the habit of weekly fasting and now can't seem to get a handle on them. I have no problem with my 3-day monthly fast but fasting outside of that has been tough for me. But, I believe if I stick with OMAD, I will not need them.

    Truth!!!! I find a heavier calorie weekend just helps me not feel deprived, and if I don't start eating I could honestly fast for a week 🤣🤣🤣

    It's weds night, I've been fasting since Sunday night and I haven't had a single craving so I made the executive decision to just ride it til Friday and give myself an extra weight drop boost 🥰🥰🥰 but then last Tuesday I just COULDN'T for whatever reason so I had an omad 🤷🤷🤷 I just do what's comfortable and easy 🤣😘
