I'm down 2 more pounds. I met my FitBit goal from a year ago. I'm really happy about that. I'm focusing on 5 more pounds. But mainly I want 20 to be my next goal.

Has anyone ever tried eating all their calories in one meal and then not eaten for the rest of the day? I guess itís another form of intermittent fasting called OMAD. I ate around 1000 calories for lunch and then just 160 calories for dinner. I donít think I can do it constantly but today it worked out fine.

Iíve read people do it when they are going out to eat for dinner or something and want to indulge but donít want to go over their calorie budget. So they just skip eating all day.

I would have trouble with OMAD. I did 5:2 IF for a while, but the two "fasting" days were actually just VLC (very low calorie) days of ~600 calories. I still spread that across meals, eating a banana for breakfast, an 80 cal pouch of tuna or chicken with plain salad for lunch and then had about 350 left for dinner.

I tend to make up for overages rather than plan for them. I have been doing that too often lately. I have still managed to stay in my maintenance range but have been on thin ice lately. I stayed close to goal today and did about 100 minutes of cardio this morning and didn't log it, so I am really coming in well below goal. I am hoping for 157 in the morning.

I've done that before when I was younger. Now it's hard for me to do intermittent fasting. I've tried. I don't last more than a couple of days. My issue is I don't sleep at night straight through. I'll sleep for 3 hours, up for 2 and then sleep a couple more, up again, etc. I get really hungry at night.

I haven't weighed myself for almost a month,but I know I have gained.I have overeaten for the fourth day in a row and I ate chocolate three times today and cake too,really disappointing.I am not going to worry about it and I enjoyed what I ate.I am starting seriously this weekend planning meals for an anti cancer diet which I will start next wednesday when the shop of mainly vegetables and salad stuff gets delivered to me.

157 again. I am good with that. I want to trend lower slowly.

My new FitBit seems to be broken. I was relying on it to get my daily steps in. There's no display. I suppose I'll try rebooting it from the windows app and see if that helps. Or worse case, I reset it. So strange. Good news is I did over my steps yesterday!
