Starting weight...196
Goal weight.........125-130
Today's weight....192

3 years ago I started out at about the same weight and lost 69 pounds, but during the COVID-19 pandemic I gained back all the weight that I lost so I'm going back to what I did in 2016/2017. I will be doing Low Carb 6 days and High Carb 1 day. OMAD will not be forced but if it happens then great πŸ˜ŠπŸ’œ

    Brenda, we are both in the same boat. We did it before and can do it again. We know what to do, let's do it!

    Thanks everyone <3

    Yesterday morning I threw my back out and I was in quite a bit of pain πŸ˜” I was going to start walking on my treadmill but that will have to wait until my back is feeling better.

    OMAD-TUESDAY

    Sorry to hear about your back. Take the time to get better. OMAD is enough for now. You’ve got this.

    Thanks girls πŸ’œ I have had my back go out a few times and just today I found out that I have been treating my pain all wrong. I've been using heat instead of ice so as if today I'm still very sore. I started using ice tonight and it felt so much better on my back than the heat was doing. So hopefully the pain is better soon πŸ™

    I'm going to try to do OMAD everyday with no splurge days. I will probably throw in a TMAD day though if my weight hits a plateau. I weigh everyday just to see how I'm losing but I will only be posting my weekly losses on here. The first week is always the biggest weight loss and since I didn't start until Monday I only had a 5 pound loss which is awesome and very motivating for me 😊

    Starting Weight...194
    Week 1.................189
    59 pounds to go 😊

    In just my county in NH we've had a total of 60951Β cases so far and we are having between 500 and 900 plus cases daily. We have a total of 971 Deaths so far πŸ˜₯ Our school district is doing in school learning with only 3 days of remote learning because someone tested positive in the school. I will be so happy when this finally gets under control, hopefully soon πŸ™

    Brenda you are killing it with the weight loss!!!!

    Yeah --it is horrible here, and our district is still all remote but our city is a lot worse than some others in our state. I am so ready for us to get back to normal......
