Hello I’m Sean
I weight 221.5 (254 on July 9)
I’m 5’ 11.5”
I’ve struggled losingweight in Summer for 3-4 months and then gain the other 8-9months. 200 to 250 to 230 to 250. Since 2016 when I reach 250 k know I’m obese and usually do something.
My goal is 200 to start with short term goal to get out of Obese BMI (212) I will then review how I look and feel to determine if I want to go lower toward “normal” BMI. my ultimate goal: sto stay in 200 area. Forever. Settle with for a year and not gain this Nov to June.
My current OMAD is 6/7pm to 7/8pm
I just started OMAD and got I single meal 23/1 for first time on Tuesday 10/2. I’ve been intermittent fasting since July 9 and have IF before in 2016 and 2017. Did 16/8 and moved to 18/6 for quite some time. Eating during day. Thinking I’m consuming calories when I use them. Always last meal at 3pm so by the time I went to bed. I was entering fasting state. I’ve decided to make most of the fasting by trying to fast during day while burning carlories in the hopes that my body will start using the fat for energy. I’m struggling a bit with the change of time to eat. But my will power is stronger and I will do this for at least a period of time to determine which timing is best for me.
I’m good with just black coffee/ teas (herbal or black) and water only. I’ve not consumed any calories in my 23 fast windows so far.
I’m hoping that the lifestyle will root, and it staves any aging/ potential health issues.
I use MFP to track calories and macros and Wholesome for detailed nutrition info. So I know exactly how many calories consumed and Fitbit lets me know activity and calories out.

Hey there shrinking people! My name is Karen and I've been doing OMAD for about a month. I'm 5'7", my start weight was 353, my current weight is 309, and my first milestone goal is 250. Ultimately I want to get down to 150, but it's a little too far off in the future for me to see that as a realistic goal. My doc started talking about bariatric surgery and I'm not a fan, so my weight loss journey started.
For the past year I've been cleaning up my food choices, and about 6 months ago I started doing Keto. Then I learned about intermittent fasting, and it wasn't long after that when OMAD evolved. I eat in the early evenings after work. I like it, it fits well with my lifestyle.
I rely on the calorie deficit of the OMAD, and choose foods to meet nutritional goals. Pie, chocolate, and wine happen, still at a calorie deficit, so I'm cool about it. I walk my dog 7 days a week, 4 miles, it takes about an hour, sometimes a little less. I ride my bike on weekends. And once I get down to 250, which is technically the maximum weight specification for my bike, I'll join a group of cyclists and clock some real miles.
OMAD has been really eye opening in terms of what my body needs vs. what I've been taught my body needs. I have more energy and mental acuity and I drink less coffee. Go figure!
I've benefited by learning from other people's challenges, so I hope this group will be an excellent resource for more fine tuning of what is already proving to work well for me.

I started OMAD probably 18 months ago and lost about 13 lbs. Which was close to my goal. I stopped omad, but I face the challenge of trying to consume the correct amount of calories over 3 meals to lose a little more weight. Plus the weight is creeping back up. To lose weight I need to eat 1200 calories. Trying to eat 400 calorie meals is difficult.
... goal weight range 140-145
...the time of your OMAD 6-7
...and your OMAD start date. 10/12/18
I love food which is another challenge and I am an emotional eater. The no snacking especially at night will be very helpful.
