Just me again, @collaroygal.
August gave good progress toward getting back to being in maintenance. I decided to try to get down below 200 during April after holding the same weight for a year, I think. It was just an uncomfortable weight. Clothes just a bit too tight, that sort of feeling. It’s a long story and I’m sure I’ve told it before.
Anyway, my last week’s worth of weigh-ins show I’m under 200, and I’m thinking about what sort of margin I need to get to. Maybe 197, or 195. 12 pounds in 17 or 18 weeks isn’t a fast rate of loss. I did a few two week experiments in there that didn’t result in any loss, like doing two weeks of OMAD and two weeks with fewer than three days fasting a week. I really needed to do either my three 40-ish hour fasts or a 65/70 hour fast followed by one 40 hour fast.
I had my semi-annual GP visit and he gave me his usual, “you’re bad for business, get outta here!” summary.
