    Congratulations Brenda!!! It’s so encouraging to see people stay at a consistent weight.
    Do you still do OMAD everyday or do you mix it up?

    Thanks, I don't do OMAD everyday. I'm only doing it 3 or 4 days a week :)

    Thanks everyone <3

    Just an update on what my eating schedule looks like nowadays...

    I'm not counting carbs or calories. I'm keeping my eating window as short as possible because once I start eating it's hard for me to stop. My eating window will be between 4 and 8 hours. Some days I do OMAD only and then I will either have 1 or 2 water only days.

    Last Week...
    Friday............4 HW (Hour Window)
    Saturday.......8 HW
    Sunday.........4 HW
    Monday........OMAD
    Tuesday........8 HW
    Wednesday...6 HW
    Thursday.......Water Only

    @Brendalea69 I can relate, the eating window is my saving grace. At this point, can’t imagine life without this freeing limitation.

    My water fast was yesterday into this morning. Feels good.

    I know what you mean...once I start eating I will graze all the way..munching here and there. Have a wonderful weekend☺

    Wow, Brenda! My last TSH number 7.742, I think. I'm fixing to get checked again.

    As for bone density, I wouldn't worry too much. You'd have other symptoms and wouldn't feel good if it were a problem, I'm thinking.

    Great job Brenda!!! :)

    Thanks Y'all <3

    My bone density test came back normal so that means no osteoporosis :) It still makes me worry and wonder why I would lose height so quickly :#

    Brenda, amazing maintenance allllll this time. Do you pinch yourself to make sure it's not all a dream? I know you give yourself treats, so you sure know when to stop and negate them. I still need to check into the 'Chez Brenda' BnB :) Well done!
