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 140.1 lbs., 16.2 lbs. body fat at 11.6%, 64.7% water mass, 7.2% bone mass, 27.5" natural waist circumference (narrowest point between ribs and belly button) and 28.5" abdominal circumference (narrowest point between belly button and hips) with a narrower than normal 1" separation between the two mid-section circumference measurements and a 0.1% higher than normal bone mass, both taken together indicating a bloated state of being.
With an after food day weigh in of 140.1 lbs., which is 0.9 lbs. lighter than last period's, I was rather surprised that my weight didn't come in much higher as I felt the early taken food day was a heavy food day. I suffered from some gas production resulting in small bouts of belching and burping but in terms of what I usually suffer after a food day, that wasn't so much or so bad. I think I need to continue steaming and having vegetables on my food days alongside anything else that I eat. I don't think I have to really give up anything. I put in two and a half hours of exercise tonight, and that helps make up for the one hour I got in upon the food day. As such, I'm shooting for two hours of daily exercise for this session. My right knee continue to be a problem as its kneecap feels like it is a bit out of position so that the knee itself doesn't hinge as it should.
First feeding was met by a raccoon waiting at the sliding glass patio door, and when I stepped out the raccoon instantly rushed up to me to assist in my setting down the food dishes that I held in hand. I have yet to set out second feeding, and shall do that after I post. I only saw that one raccoon so far tonight. That one raccoon does drive home the notion that I am so very much essential in the lives of both the raccoons and the possums that have grown used to the food that I provide for them.
