    {{{ :) Waving Hi and sending more thanks to you Joe! :) }}}

    While walking today, I saw someone who I see on my walks on a regular basis. They stopped me and told me "you're looking really good--I see a huge change in you, you look so much slimmer". Then I saw a family member who sees me on a regular basis, and she told me for the FIRST TIME (again, I see here almost daily), that she sees a big difference in me AND the way I look and she's going to "miss" the "big me". :# I too am seeing a difference in my appearance. My double-chin is almost 90% gone, and even though I still have a long road to travel (44 more pounds), I just want to thank you again for all that you do here on OMAD to help folk like me.

    Lastly, you posted something to someone that I want to thank you for as well (I'm going to post it on my journal and it's sooooo important to know and REMEMBER, that maybe it ought to be a "sticky" here it is:

    Joe-ism 101

    ***********************
    Everybody plateaus. And some plateaus are long. You are not alone in that. And the reason you feel the difficulty is because you have little to lose and your losses will necessarily be slow. You need to give yourself six solid weeks at it. You will lose if you keep yourself in a fasted state with a sizable deficit and train your body to draw on your reserves rather than what you eat. Don't be waiting around for confirmation bias, though. You will psych yourself out.

    I really like this 'Do's and Don't' video! We are so lucky to have Joe to help us. I have learned more from him than anyone else. I like how he adds the psychological aspect of weight loss into his teachings which really resonate with me. Thank you so much Joe!!
