    After two days of post-vacation OMAD, I am down another pound and a half. Although I was happy with a two-pound loss after more than two weeks of vacation -- shoot, who doesn't usually gain weight on vacation? -- I also felt I was retaining water from salty foods. (In Bavaria, nearly every meal included sauerkraut. It's not as salty as the sauerkraut here, but salty enough, I'm sure. Plus lots of potato dumplings and cheese, airplane food on the way home...you get the picture.)

    Sure enough, some of that water came off after a return to OMAD, making my vacation loss close to four pounds. Just goes to show that even a modified form of OMAD, such as the one I tried to stick to during my trip, can help keep gains in check or, coupled with moderate exercise, even generate a loss. I'm within spitting distance of maintenance range and only three pounds from my feel-best weight.

    That's amazing! Of course, I don't make it a habit to bike 5 hours a day on vaca either LMAOOOOO

    Nice job dear, and I'm SO GLAD you not only had a blast, but made progress, and kicked that scale's butt!

    In addition to the salty foods, I was also, in the wake of my accident, taking a type of anti-inflammatory that can cause fluid retention. I didn't think I was taking it long enough -- just five days-- to cause that particular side effect, but perhaps it did, because this morning I was down another pound. That brings me into the upper edge of my maintenance range and just under three pounds to my feel-best weight. Vacation-modified OMAD, coupled with a return to true OMAD the past three days, did the trick.
