    @shans34, Thank you, It really does feel great. I will never be skinny, either, I feel the same as you. I'd be happy around 140, but I've set 130 as a goal for extra play room. :)

    @mikseyniha, thank you!

    @1MADGIRL, lol, thanks for the onderland welcome! I hope to never visit the two-hundred range ever again!

    Post vacation meal... a hearty serving of chicken noodle casserole, a generous salad of mixed greens, tomato, cucumber, onion, and an ounce of sharp shredded cheese with homemade honey mustard vinegarette dressing, and topped off with a banana, vanilla greek yogurt and peanut butter smoothie with chia seeds. I do not know how many calories because my mother-in-law made this for us to eat today because she correctly assumed we'd have jet lag, she was right! She doesn't use no fat nor low fat for her meals, so I am assuming a good calorie count. :-)

    I'm in "Onderland" now!!! I'm sure it would've been more, but we really made our last night there a night of super indulgence! We drank all day and had a big ole meal at a local Italian restaurant with dessert to boot! I had so much fun in London and truly do credit the walking over 13k steps a day, on average, as well as my conditioning from eating one meal a day for so long, for helping me stay on track. We drank alcohol everyday, and I enjoyed things like steak and ale pie with mashed potatoes, burgers and chicken sandwiches with chips (fries) or onion rings, sugar in my coffees (too strong over there to go black, lol), lasagna, spaghetti bolognese, salads, fish n chips, roasts, etc.

    I never once felt like I was on a diet while on vacation, I felt like a normal person who only eats when they're hungry. I'm sure there are foods I didn't fit in while on vacation, but so what? I couldn't be expected to sample everything. However, I did try Marmite--it was disgusting!! LOL

    @arguablysamson... OMAD has saved me from myself and given me a life I never thought possible. Thanks so much for sharing your story and getting this way of life out there so people like me could happen along it. Nothing I've done before has ever worked like this, I constantly struggled no matter what kind of plan I was on. OMAD has taken away the constant obsession I had over food.

    I do not do low carb or low fat, I have a quite a balanced diet on my plate and if some days I lack in a macronutrient, I naturally make up for it on another day. I don't over exert myself with exercises. I don't feel a need to fast any longer than I normally do on a daily basis which is about 23 hours, give or take. I don't feel deprived. I don't have sugar addiction anymore. I don't have heartburn anymore. My rheumatoid arthritis flare ups have been reduced significantly, same with osteoarthritis. I have energy and now my sleep pattern is back and without having to take any nighttime OTC sleep aids!

    OMAD isn't a diet to me, it's a way of life. I know I'm still very early on in my OMAD journey, but I've been faithful and, even have included days of indulgence, everything just feels right. It seems so easy. I know I will come across weeks of little to no weight loss, I may even gain, but it won't change the fact of how much better I feel on OMAD. So, once again, thanks for getting your story out there!

    I am touched, very touched! :-)

    Here's my BIG CONGRATS extended to you! I know exactly how seeing that "1.." on the scale is. And you'll continue to expand yourself and your results!

    Really enjoyed my dinner today, even though I overcooked my pork chops--going to be a grandma today, more than likely, so mind wasn't all on the cooking. :-)

    Anyhoo, along with the chops I had a golden, twice baked potato with applewood smoked bacon, butter, sour cream, sharp cheddar cheese, and jalapeños, as well as a nice mixed green salad with the rest of the 1 oz. of cheese I didn't use on potato, an onion, and my homemade honey mustard vinegarrette salad dressing. Drank a nice banana, blueberry, peanut butter, and vanilla greek yogurt smoothie, and am now enjoying a cup of coffee with a bit of creamer. Didn't eat back as many calories as I wanted to, but I tried. Just too full! lol

    @Shans34, yes ma'am I am. I was hoping to be 50 first before becoming a grandma, but my son is still rebellious at the ripe ole' age of 22! lolol My daughter-in-law's water broke this morning, she was only 4cm dilated so it's probably going to be a long day for them. I'm so excited that I can hardly stand it. :smiley:
