Hi! My name is Heather and I'm going to start OMAD on Monday, January 4. I have been on MFP for 1228 days. I lost 75 lbs in the first year by calorie counting, dabbled with IF and Intermittent fasting then have been maintaining, slowly gaining about 20 lbs since. I exercise daily, that is my passion. It sounds crazy but I am very fit at 5'5 and but 230 lbs.
I love to run and bike and weight lift. I have recently gotten into tabata and I love that too. I love to set a goal and push myself and feel proud and accomplished when I complete that goal, but I just can't seem to control my eating. I am an emotional eater and it frustrates me that I can push myself for a 2 hour bike ride but I can't resist one stupid cookie that turns into 6!! So I'm going to use OMAD to teach myself and my brain that food is fuel and nothing else. It's not a coping mechanism, it's not a celebration or a reward, it is to fuel my body.
I would like to lose at least 40 lbs by June 1 and then I am going to start training for a half marathon. I'm not running in an actual race, but I want to run the distance from my husband work to home Labor Day weekend, and that is 13 miles. I need to lose weight so that the running that I love does not hurt my body so much. I only do short distances now of 3-4 miles. I have dealt with running injuries and I know that is because I am carrying all this weight around.
After Labor Day I will continue with weight loss to hope to finish the year at my goal weight of 150 lbs. My range would be 150-160, I think. I am very muscular under all this excess fat and even to look at me now you would never know that I am 230 lbs because of my build. I wear a size 15/16 jeans and a womens XL shirt. I don't look like a 230 lb woman so my goal is to get to a comfortable size 9/10 jeans and have legs lean and muscular enough to wear shorts so I'm guessing my goal weight for now.
So that is me and my plan. I open to friend requests if anyone wants to add me.
Monday, January 4 it begins!!

Hello, I am trying to decide if OMAD would be good for me. I definitely like to delay eating; as it seems like once I start I just continue even if I'm not hungry.
At 143# today; would like to be in the 128-133 range. I love to exercise, I do some triathlons (just sprint/olympic and would like to do a 1/2IM some day) so do a lot of two a day workouts and work full time. Do any of you here do two a days and still able to do the OMAD program? I don't do two a days every day, probably just 3 days/week then singles three to four days a week. Rest day just depending how I feel sometimes that is couple times a week; sometimes not for two weeks. When I was doing crossfit I was able to maintain my ideal weight, but I always felt sore or injured (even after two years) so I have given that up and just doing regular strength training couple times a week (I count that as a workout). And I have a horrible sweet tooth. I know that is a big component.

U can call me Linds
My weight as off the 1st was 171.4 lbs
Pass struggles are eating out if boredom, stress induced eating, and an awful sweet tooth that rears it ugly head every time I look at food.
OMAD will take place between 4pm and 8pm.
I would like to be around 130-135. I always seem to hit a plateau around 150-145, then I give up and get right back to the bad habits again.
OMAD would work great for me cause I already fast for most of the day til I get home and it is constant eating and snacking til I go to bed, not to mention I am hugely addicted to pop and sugar loaded drinks.
So tonight my meal was salsa chicken, rice, refried beans and some mini peanut butter cups.
Tomorrow I will start my own thread and own up to changing my eating habits.
There will be more to follow...
Thank you and have a great night everyone!
