I'm Monica
My weight is 121.5 kg
Height 170 cm
My goal range is 65 kg 70 kg
The window of OMAD 16 20
I am starting today OMAD 31.07

Didn't use to keep IF or OMAD before , I hope it will be nice and I know the first 14 days will be difficult , but I plan to overcome these difficulties
I work in shifts one week during the morning till 7 to 15 , another week from 10 to 18 , but I think I will manage with my window chosen
I have a sedentary work, that is IT , my workouts usually consist of walking either alone, or with my dog or with my husband
I have a history chapter full of diets and yoyo , but I hope now it will work
I plan to have menus oriented versus low carb, not keto, but low carb and high protein
I will also try to have some pictures in the next days of my meal

Water and coffee will be the main fasting beverages, tea I like, but not so much
As I am at the beginning , I am a little afraid of splurge days , but we will see after the 14 days of starting OMAD

Thanks for being here in my journey!

    Thank you Tracey!

    Day2 120.2 kg
    Lost 1.3 kg just by starting OMAD, I know I should go to the scale weekly but just for the beginning I don't think I will have patience to see :)
    At start probably its water loss , but it is a loss

    I will write also here my August goals just to have them in mind

    For me in August I should keep what I started yesterday 31.07, that is OMAD, starting this way of life and keep going
    I want to lose minimum 4 kg this month
    And I want to enjoy this new style with photos of my meals and a nice attitude
    And I want to relax more and be more Zen

    Going to work, wishing you a nice day!

    Thanks Britt!!
    So today less headache, a little hunger but I managed to keep the window 16 - 17
    I am still eating very quick due to hunger, I should eat slower, but I hope this will come in time
    Today low carb pizza made with oat bran and ham , gouda cheese and tomato juice
    Beverages water, coffee with some cream which was not a good idea , tomorrow without cream


    A good day also today!

    Thanks Jason , I posted also there but I wanted to have them also here just to not forget them!
    Question about Apple Vinegar, it matters if it is taken before meals ? Or it does not matter ? Yesterday and today I forgot about it and drink it just after the window
