Hi All

This is my 3rd time attempting omad. Decided to stop all the excuses and really make an effort. But i would not be about double the weight I should be if not eating was an easy option for me. I know omad ia not starving myself why is this so hard ugh ugh..... please support me and lets see if 3rs time is a charm.

Ughhhhhh...

    Some people have hard times starting and others sticking with it...I know myself...I start very well and fully comitted by the time I hit my 3 months doing any type of diet or lifestyle change I break down..So let´s see how I cope with this 3 month stuff..

    What keeps me going for the first months and maybe this can help you is that I make a decision such as OMAD and I do not review the decision. its done!...done deal, no returning back to choosing any other option...

    Next I will need to invent another solution for when my 3 month sabotaging mark kicks in! but that´s another story...

    Best of lucks to you!!!

    Thankyou to barbheart minigrrl and wsandy and tblanksfit.

    It really helps to have this community and your support. Xoxoxo barbheart totaly understand the self undoing maybe rather than weight numbers or pictures use the money you would have spent on extra food or even half of it for 3 months...weekend away anyone?

    Ruby, you started one of OMAD's best threads ever http://community.myfitnesspal.com/en/discussion/10493491/show-us-your-meals-or-describe-them#latest

    Don't despair. OMAD is hard. You know it, I know it. That's not talked about much in this group, but when you're having a hard time with it, PM me. I get it and I'm willing to have a fully honest conversation about it.

    Thanks i will be posting there daily ;)

    If you ever have a bad day, don't worry about it. I've had mine. Just get back at it the next day. I can gain 3-lbs in a splurge day but it is food weight and a couple of days back on OMAD and you will be back where you started. I see people who slip one day and react very negatively and think all is lost. If that happens, don't sweat it and just get back at it! You will succeed as long as you keep trying!

    Sunday morrning... found a new plate set for omad... nom nom nom haha ordered 4 of them...

    100 days really trying to focus on this because 100 days will help with new habbits and new habbits will be a way of life... after failing twice before starting at 100 days seems resonable ans not scary enough for me to freak out... not yet anyway..

    I love the idea of breaking it down into 100-day chunks! Seems so much more manageable. Best of luck!
