8/1 Weightloss Wednesday: Operation OMAD

It’s time for Weightloss Wednesday!  As of this morning I am 234.6 lbs and my weight has gone crazy up and down by more than 5 lbs in the last 2 weeks.  I’m not used to seeing it vary that much in a few days.  I know some of that is water but still it’s a lot more than normal.

I like to do little experiments from time to time and see how they affect my body.  I talked last time how I’ve cut out tea to see if the tannins are causing my elevated blood pressure.  In addition to that, I think August is going to be OMAD month as I commit to eating just one meal a day to see what happens.

This isn’t coming out of nowhere.  I have been eating one meal a day on most of the days I work for a while and enjoy it but try to eat 3 meals on my days off as well as the occasional snack.  There are a couple reasons why I want to make the change.  First of all, I just want to see if I can do it.  While keto has helped me no be hungry often, I still do occasionally get hungry and want to see if that is something I can manipulate.

Second, I feel like there are times when I eat because I’ve run out of other things to do, especially on my days off.  I’ll be sitting here working on my blog or watching TV and just start running through all the things in the kitchen I could eat.  It is actually quite annoying and I’d like to see if I can break that habit.

Third, I want to lose about 40 lbs.  I know that’s not happening this month but I sure would like to move the needle a bit.  These 35 lbs that have kind of crept on over the last year annoy the living Hell out of me and I’m ready for them to go away.  My pants I bought when I was 200 lbs are…let’s just say snug.

So that’s my goal for August and I will definitely keep you guys apprised of how things are going.

In the meantime, let me know how you guys are doing on your health journey in the comments below!
