Conversation via posts I had with Linda in my journal this morning that I thought would be appropriate to share here as well:

How do you mean "changes" in my body?

The big change was dropping all the weight... And I did workout even at the very beginning of this journey. I started slowly and increased as I felt able to. Didn't wanna kill myself. I figured baby steps at first was better than NO steps, eh? I did my stationary bike and walked. Don't remember the number of miles I walked back then...

I've been walking 4 miles in the am for the last several years now well before the butt crack of dawn and manage throughout the day to add another 6+ miles on school days. When Imma at home I only manage another 2 or 3 miles... so not too shabby but I do MORE pedalin' on days I don't go to school. Sometimes that can be as much as 5-6 hrs and Imma not sweating bullets but I HATE to sit idle on my ass and it alleviates the pain from my varicose veins. During school days, I try to pedal at least 2 hrs in the am before school...

I think the most amazing change in my body was at my core when I started doing those planks. It really has changed how my core looks. I have definition there that wasn't there before I did those planks. Don't know how long it took to have that change there.

But I ain't much for parading in front of the mirror and ogling myself, KWIM? I've been doing planks since June 2016, push-ups since Jan 2017 and wall sits since April 2017. They are all documented in my gym log.

I do weight training on the alternating days (odds days) with the PPWs on even days... also documented in my gym log. I started slowly with those back in late 2013.

To be honest with you, if I didn't do my 4 mile walk, those PPWs and the weight training first thing in the AM, I wouldn't do 'em at all!

I don't like to exercise, BUT I know how important it is for my over-all continued good health. I ain't doing it to lose weight b/c exercising doesn't really burn that many kcals... and I ain't aiming to lose any more weight.period!

During Spring Break of April 2014, I broke my leg and wasn't able to walk or pedal my stationary bike for 3 months. I did however continue my weight training since that didn't involve being on my feet.

My orthopedic surgeon told me that I could easily gain 20-30 lbs or more during this episode since that's about average for people that aren't ambulatory. I was grateful that I only gained 3 lbs! Which took me several months to lose.

As for OMAD, I started that on 5 July 2013 (My Independence Day from "Fat Jo" and carbs). I was determined to "eat only when hungry" as prescribed by Dr. A.

I wasn't a breakfast eater and hadn't been since jr hs. I figured the LONGER I waited to eat, the less I would eat. B/c once I start to eat, I can EAT all flippin' day LONG! It's a very rare day indeed if I eat twice... eating OMAD really works for me b/c it takes care of a lot of my food related issues.

Wanted to add this to my gym log:

WOL Front:
Today is officially 4 years 9 months in maintenance = 1732 days! Woot! Woot!

100% OP with eating properly and exercising daily added bonus of no problems with cravings or temptations!

Two reasons (of many) that I totally 💚 love my WOL:
1) It's GREAT for my continued good HEALTH!
2) I feel EMPOWERED b/c I CONTROL my food and my food doesn't CONTROL me!
