That's fantastic and so inspirational. Thanks for sharing. I'm 54 and just getting started with MFP and intermittent fasting (I need to lose 80-90 pounds). I'm trying out the 9 AM to 5 PM window. Curious: did you do it 7 days a week the same time frame or ever shift to 10 to 6 or 11 to 7? Did you keep tracking on MFP? Wondering if you kept to a certain calorie limit or if just the IF worked for you. Thanks and congratulations!!

Congrats you look great. I too lost weight which was not easy with my medications etc. Then I had a bad 6 months, regained some. I am back on the IF and intend to stay there this time. I have found it's the only way for me as a life long eating plan, a change of lifestyle. And it's so easy. I think also I rushed OMAD, I started at 16.8 then was doing 18/19 fast windows. This time I will take it slower. We are all different. Best Wushes

Well done...Advice please
I stopped losing weight even though I kept the same routine
Was 275 pounds, and lost 2 pounds per week for 6 weeks...then 1 pound for a couple of weeks
And then for 4 weeks I remained EXACTLY the same. Lost zero.
In the last week, I lost 2 pounds again..back to normal.... ???
In that month where I didn't lose anything, I kept the nearly exact routine...1500 calories. 30 min walk.
I did drink more wine on a couple of occasions...maybe 2 bottles over that month...but still...my calories have always been in control.
So just asking if it's normal...Did you experience this?
I have had a bypass, and easily gained weight after that. Maybe my motabalism isn't stable ?
Does it happen to healthy people too?

@NikonPal Tell all. I'm fascinated with your success story.
I ate it all back the first time. Rebound weight gain with friends. Started over and it took me 2.5 years to undo what I did. The second time out of the chute was much harder than the first go around.
Lessons learned going forward. What are your takeaways for long term weight stability. I'm bent on finding permanent weight stability. The weight loss process takes focus and consistency but maintenance does, too. I don't do cheat meals or cheat days or cheat months. I ask myself, how much progress are you willing to give up. I cannot go through all of that again.

@NikonPal Today, I drove 100 miles to the nearest garage for truck repairs but I thought about you on the way home. Your words are meaningful for me.
I gave all my larger clothes away. I don't want a backup plan in my closets. I'm with you all the way. Once you've been down this road a couple of times, it finally sinks in. There's no going back.
Doing what we've always done will get us what we've always gotten. Report back, visit more often. We need your anchor when the storms hit.
