Maintaining weight through a set minimum weight of 130.0 lbs., under 130.0 lbs. during my daily weigh time shall turn the next day into a food day.
When it requires more than three fasting days to drop my weight under the set maintenance weight, I will adjust what I eat to reduce the weight drift.
Likewise, I shall adjust what I eat to avoid upwards weight drift whenever my Fasting Day 1 weigh in weight fails to be below is now normal 132.0 lbs..
Favorite beverage: A bottle of water with fruit punch flavored zipfizz, a teaspoon of creatine and greens powder, lemon juice, local honey, and nutmeg.
Zipfizz is an energy powder that is high in electrolytes and vitamins, creatine powder helps muscles tear down at a slower rate while retaining higher muscle hydration, greens powder is nutritional, lemon juice and honey are known for both health and weight loss, nutmeg, cinnamon, and turmeric are excellent herbs reputed to assist flexibility. Sage is good for memory and mental health. Avoiding hot spicy herbs is wise as they can irritate the bladder making urination painful.
Thoughts on maintenance weight: Seems like I have a goldilocks zone that pivots around 131.0 to 131.5 lbs. as a set maintenance weight. When my weight goes over my muscles buff up with the most noticeable gains being in my chest, upper arms, and hips while maintaining a nice waist. When i drop under my mid-section drops weight the fastest but although I continue to have a good figure my chest pays the price as my ribcage pokes through. Ideal goldilocks zone = BMI 18.2 last fasting day, 18.8 food day. Since I've dropped my set maintenance weight to 130.0 lbs., I'll have to wait to see what happens.

I've created a fun and easy to do at home youtube exercise video thread in the exercise section of mpa at: https://www.myproana...rkout-routines/.
Morning stats came in at a height of 5'11", weight of 142.7 lbs., 18.0 lbs. body fat at 12.6%, 64.0% water mass, 7.2% bone mass, 28" natural waist circumference (narrowest point between ribs and belly button) and 28" abdominal circumference (narrowest point between belly button and hips) with a much narrower than normal 0" separation between the two mid-section circumference measurements and a 0.1% higher than normal bone mass percentage, both taken together indicate an extremely bloated state of being.
Some days just don't go as all planned, and today was one of those days. I woke extremely bloated, to put it mildly I spent a good twenty minutes or so doing nothing but belching to reduce the amount of bloat in my body from gas pressure alone. It seemed to take me three times of pretty much completely emptying the pressure until the situation became alleviated. Even then the morning scale weight was several pounds too heavy, the highest I've seen it in a long time coming in at 142.7 lbs. and almost reaching a 20 BMI but stopping short at 19.9.
In the garage lay a baby possum, around six weeks old, eyes sealed shut and no mother possum to be found. I picked it up, checked it out, and tried to keep it warm. Put it on a heating pad in the garage and gave it a terry cloth to wrap itself in while waiting to see if the mother possum comes back and accepts it. Chances are high that it will be dead in the morning, but if not I'll have to get formula and see if it will eat. The cats seem to be leaving it alone, but I don't know if the same will be said if other possums wander into it.
I failed to exercise tonight, more due to time getting away from me than anything else. Perhaps the night off will wind up being a bit better for me than had I exercised given that my leg muscles are yet a little sore. Hopefully I'll make it up tomorrow by placing in a good three hours. It rained a bit today but that was closer to midday. Early in the day I fought against developing another cold, the nasal/allergy relief tabs seemed to have worked well, though I did take a few of them where one 24 hour tablet used to suffice.
Lots of possums and raccoons at both feedings tonight, and they kind of were scattered about species wise. A raccoon here, a possum there. I kind of liked the mix of looking around and seeing everyone all about. Once again, most of the dry cat food dishes from first feeding were still full come second. I can't really blame the cat food as my cat Ashley has taken a liking to it and seems to want to eat some of it everyday despite having more extravagant cat food inside.
