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 137.0 lbs., 14.4 lbs. body fat at 10.5%, 65.5% water mass, 7.1% bone mass, 25" natural waist circumference (narrowest point between ribs and belly button) and 26" abdominal circumference (narrowest point between belly button and hips) with a narrower than normal 1" separation between the two mid-section circumference measurements indicating a somewhat bloated state of being.
My after Fasting Day 1 weigh in is a good three pounds heavier than what it should be at, for whatever reason I gained quite a bit of weight upon my last food day. I failed to exercise upon it and I had bread, and I cut bread out cause it seemed to make me bloat more than normal and that bloat tended to last a day or two longer upon me as well. I put in three hours of exercise tonight to make up for the lack of food day exercise.
The baby possum that was placed on a heating pad in the garage and given a terry cloth to cover it was gone this morning, and there was no sign that it had died or been eaten. Quite possibly the mother came back and put it into her pouch, I'm sure she is a regular and the cats seemed to leave the baby possum alone. If an adult male were to have killed the infant, I doubt they would have ate it or not leave a trace in the process. I doubt the raccoons would have bothered it, and the infant was pretty well covered and frequently enough made the little sucking noise that calls out of mother possum attention.
Both possums and raccoons were around at both feedings, but only in half the numbers that I saw last night. The possums seem to be more at peace and more expectantly spoiled everyday. A couple of them appear to take root at a water dish feeding station and expect me to just leave them be to eat.
