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 142.0 lbs., 17.5 lbs. body fat at 12.3%, 66.7% water mass, 7.2% bone mass, 28.5" natural waist circumference (narrowest point between ribs and belly button) and 28.5" 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, both taken together indicating an extremely bloated state of being.
At an after food day weight of 142.0 lbs. I felt the weigh in could have been way worse as I was nowhere near my usual and goal end of fasting day weights. As expected, I was once more sick, the food struggled to get through my digestive system and though acid reflux and even burping was kept low in frequency for after a food day, upon many occasions I had to exercise my stomach muscles and create abdominal pressure to rotate over completely different areas of my intestines to release pent up and building gasses and to allow the food to pass through. It is simply amazing that my stools are pretty much normal and I never seem to suffer from constipation. That said, it still feels like I have acidic explosions going on throughout my digestive tract and that does cause heart burn and sometimes oxygen depletion making me dizzy and lightheaded, fatigued, and somewhat attacked in the areas that momentarily deplete. I'm thinking about going back to steaming food again in order to see if that helps, as I don't really fancy the notion of only consuming non-solids.
I put in two and a halt to three hours of exercise tonight, matching last night's performance. It isn't that I wanted to exercise, but rather that I wanted to watch an hour long program followed by a movie of which I did both nights. I need to go to the stores again to restock. I also need food to give steaming another try. I really like steamed food, but haven't done that in quite awhile. I'm also a bit tired of pizza, and its a good time to switch over as my pizza toppings are gone.
I didn't see anyone at first feeding, though all the dishes that were out emptied by second feeding. At second feeding was one raccoon and one possum. The raccoon approached me before second feeding was set out and reached out and held my hand, which usually translates as the raccoon wants its presence to be acknowledged and would appreciate something good to eat. I gave the raccoon a sugar cookie, which it liked, as it shunned the dry cat food and little marshmallow dishes. By the time I set out the better food of sliced up almond oat bars and apple pie, the raccoon had already left. The possum came next and wanted to eat all the apple pie that it could find.
