I'm confused as to what you mean in going easy? Like, are you saying that I should not exercise? Because I've been running, playing tennis, and dancing for years. Are you saying that I should not be doing them? Lifting weights is admittedly new, but I'm not a heavy lifter by any stretch of the imagination. And when I run, I usually go for 2-4 miles. I'm not running marathons.

I've always been a big guy but not this fat. Gained weight after I got out of the Marines by just living too hard and not looking after myself. Lost weight a couple of times but after a couple years, fell back into the same trap and ended up wearing the same spare tires again. I wasn't losing in a way that was a solid life-style change for me. That and I'm boredom eater that sleeps very little. ;-) Not a good combination.
I'm losing a few pounds using a LCHF diet methodology (over the last 10 weeks) but it's coming off sporadically not steadily and I know this isn't a sustainable eating method for me. I still need carbs in my diet to 'feel OK'. So after reading some of the other groups on MFP, I stumbled across the OMAD methodology and this fits in with my already established meal eating habits. I'm up at 5:30, graze throughout the day on fiber bars, nuts, carrots, etc, eat one meal in the evening, then munch on junk throughout the night till I hit the rack again at 1:00 or so. I can wrap my head around the idea of eating all my daily calories in a single, short window each day so here I go with OMAD. I don't usually get cravings and can follow rules which makes me think this may be the answer that was in front of me the whole time if I had just listened to what I've learned about myself and applied some common sense.
Just wanted to introduce myself and put a little pressure on to stick it out and get results by knowing other folks will be watching. ;-)
