    I'm definitely in a phase of not posting so often - I got out of the habit of coming on here over xmas and just can't seem to remember. I'm also super busy at work and just life in general (it's summer, so makes sense) so that doesn't help...

    Hiya everyone...just checking in. I've been doing ok...eating 90% the same food as my son (legumes, veggies and protein) for my dinners. House is still void of any snacks, which is super helpful! I'm only down 1.7 from my last weigh in on here. Getting a lil 'bored' with the more bland menu...hard for me to eat other forbidden foods at the dinner table though...you know...just feel a lil guilty lol. I'll post a few meals I've had last few days. Son is having a cheat day tomorrow and I may join him :# we'll seeeeeee....He's down 7.5 pounds in two weeks. He has Britt's shake for breakfast and I pack night before dinner left overs for his lunch and then we have dinner. So he's eating a good quantity of the 'right' foods.
    The white stuff with the peas mixed in is cauliflower mash and there's also red lentils on one of the plates.
    Hope everyone is doing fantastic <3

    You and your son are both doing great!!! I had to have a Splurge day each week just for my own sanity, I really think it helped me get through the long week knowing it was coming :)

    Very inspiring Kat! Good job on the loss for both you and your son.

    I'm trying to make my meals as flavoursome as possible, which means for the most part, buying takeaways!

    Your meals look great, and I am happy that the shake is working well for your son!
    Nice losses for both of you :)

    Hey Kat, thinking about you too!
  • katjustkatkatjustkat Posts: 569Member Member Posts: 569Member Member
    Hi Guys ! Sorry I disappeared. I got busy and didn't check back in. It got hard doing the one meal a day because I was eating what was on my son's diet and it wasn't rewarding enough for me on the one meal only...So I started eating his type of foods breakfast, lunch and dinner. (lean protein, low carb veggies and legumes). I'm down 5.4 more pounds from where I left off here. I have a free eating day ( I don't go crazy...haha) on Saturdays and that makes the 'I can't have it now' foods taste so good during that Saturday window. I'll come back to the one meal a day at some point as I still think it's the best ever eating regimen. I hope everyone is getting super results! I'm gonna go catch up on your progresses...I bet I'm gonna be....wow wow wow! <3<3<3

    Congrats on the loss and if that way of eating is easier for you and it's working then thats all that matters :)

    yep, use whatever tools that work for you! You really can't argue much with success.

    Nice loss, Kat! I was away, too - how are you?
  • katjustkatkatjustkat Posts: 569Member Member Posts: 569Member Member
    Starting again today. Didn't make much progress all this time...gahhhhh! I'm happiest on OMAD. I'll post daily weigh ins even though I fluctuate a lot. Fifty pound weight loss goal. Simple, straight forward OMAD. No cheat days unless I can't get around an occasional monthly family breakfast. Fingers crossed and...lips buttoned up.

    Welcome back Kat! I know you will do great. I have recently done a restart as well, so we are in this thing together.

    I hope it goes better this time for both of you <3

    Thank you Tracey and Brenda :) Tracey your profile picture looks really good! And Brenda you're looking good too & you really did find your perfect eating plan! I'm happy to be committing on the board...it'll keep it more real for me. I tried a couple times and I just let it fade out but there's not reason for me to do that. I really like OMAD for lots of reasons especially the cut and dry aspect of it...no thinking required...what's better than that. I'm eating my meal at 5pm. I got pretty hungry around 3:30 but luckily I got through it by talking with my sister on the phone. I'll start taking meal pictures again on Monday. Helps me to figure out what to have for dinner. I cook healthy meals anyways so my meals should be pretty decent with a lil yum on that plate as a reward. Saturdays will be a pizza or pasta type meal out...stuff I no longer have in the house. ILast week I started the C25K app and I'm liking it so far...it's jazzing up my normal walk. Yay! Nice to 'see' you all again and thank you for the 'welcome back' :O)
  • katjustkatkatjustkat Posts: 569Member Member Posts: 569Member Member
    Had a good day. Did my c25k and got 18,400 steps total today. Got hungry again around 3pm and managed to get through till my 5pm feeeeeed time. I knew we would eat something indulgent since it's our one day/ one meal splurge. Went to Kane's and had their chicken strips and fries. Had a great loss overnight but def will put some back on this week since it's water. Hope everyone had a successful day! :)
    Need to lose 50 pounds (start on Sept 21):
    Sept 22: -1.8
