Started OMAD 12 days ago. Absolute OMAD non stop since.
weight myself today (and freaked)
322lbs (if the machine is correct)
my Heigh: 5.2''
age: 49, menopausal
No apparent health issues besides obesity
OMAD: 23:1 (technically its less than 1h window because I eat in less than 30 min and I close the window.I eat my plate and thats it I have my drink take my vitamins)
Vitamins: resveratrol, omega 3, vit d3, vit K, magnesium, marine phytoplancton, chlorella.

I have been eating one meal a day, I eat protein (meat, fish chiken) and veggies (zuccini, salads, rice, or pasta), I end my meal with a bisket or mini cake with some organic cacao drink with coconut oil and xylitol or else a piece of chocolate.

So far, the meals are good, just one day I didnt eat too much because I feel full very quickly on my OMAD meal. I have managed quite well to sustain my fasting hours

For the first two weeks I have felt great, I feel more energized and love the fasting feeling. (I am just pissed off today cause I weight myself and didnt expect those 322lbs. I was expecting 30 lbs less I gained those kilos after a 3 months super strict Paleo type diet, 2 years ago. That got me real bitchy with no carbs, so I yoyoed back up the weight again.

Main issues: sedentary life AND very slugghish colon. I do colonics now and then they have been a real blessing in my life. I currently do colonics My last one 10 days ago just as I started OMAD. A colonic is a water irrigation thru the intestines to cleanse and remove fecal matter. In my case its a must. need to do it.

My meals tend to be all organic, bio.

My fasting time: I drink water,coffee (back with No sweetners nothing), green tea (kukicha tea, love it)

My emotions are good I work on myself on all levels, pray, meditate, love myself and specially forgive myself for all this weight gain...

Weight has been an ongoing issue all my life. If I stop eating cut calories I drop weight but food been associated to my mother (she over fed me to compensate stuff when I was a child, then she died when I was 9, perhaps I have some remaining trauma from her death )

    Sounds like you are off to a great start!

    Remember to get 30 minutes of sunlight each day. And ACV.
  • barbheartbarbheart Posts: 433Member Member Posts: 433Member Member
    What is ACV? (I am Spanish from Spain)
  • tlblanksfittlblanksfit Posts: 1,573Member, Premium Member Posts: 1,573Member, Premium Member
    Welcome to the group. ACV is Apple Cider Vinegar.

    Thank you ladies! Apple cider yes I do take!!! I just had it on my salad... for my OMAD today I had a rice+tomatoe+advocado+lettuce organic salad plus 1,5 chicken hamburger (organic) plus a cake (more like a big biscuit and a bit of chocolate and a chaga drink (Chaga, the mushroom)

    I also did 2 miles with leslie sansone 1 mile video (2 times prior to my meal). I went to the sun 30 min and moved much more through my morning than usually...

    Need to "retrain" myself to keep moving...
    tks for your encouragements!!!!

    Hi guys,

    I weight myself on day 10 of my OMAD and its where I started from 322lbs. Weight myself today on day 14 and I was at 319. So cool dropping down...
    I tried today Joe´s dish based on scrambled eggs, beans, cheese and a salad. All is organic/bio except the beans.
    I also started doing fitness walk (leslie sansone 1 mile, I did 2 miles not all in a row but 1 mile and an hour later another mile) its gentle...
    But yesterday I fell hurt my knee... healed it and today I am fine but no walking for a few days then back to gentle walking.

    Mood is super high, super positive, balanced, stable...
    highly motivated. I love my fast state... really peaceful, clear, pure
    love it
    Hunger feelings are minimum sometimes I get them before going to bed (my meal is 2pm) but I drink water or green tea and I manage.
    My range of movement is increading my stretches are far wider...

    What a pretty meal and you sound like you're very happy with keeping OMAD basic, as it should be (and exactly where I'm heading after a brief love affair with calorie counting, lol) and you're enjoying the peace that comes with it. :)

    I can relate to being sedentary. I lived in a camper for years, everything was within reaching distance! Now, I use a fitness tracker watch - there are lots of different ones - that I've set to remind me to move if I've been sitting for an hour straight. It really helps me break my habit of just sitting.
  • barbheartbarbheart Posts: 433Member Member Posts: 433Member Member
    Tks for your experience Hestia yes... I am making an effort in mindfulness of movement !!! so I gain 2 things I get to move and I get to improve my levels of mindfulness or else present awareness AND body awareness! Been much more active since I made the decision to be so!... the power of conscious choice!!! it always brings us back to our selves... our inner power

    That's my exact situation too - I'll be 50 next June and there is no way I'm going to be fat!!

    Good luck - this a an awesome group...

    Btw, back in May my partner and I visited Spain. We spent about a week in Madrid (I was at a conference - he was gallivanting around) and then we drove down to the south coast (stopped at Ronda for a night ) and then took the ferry over to Morocco) - was a fabulous trip... Lovely countryside (I'd only ever been to Barcelona before - which is obviously awesome too!!) and food and people.
