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, 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 is 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 134.9 lbs., 13.1 lbs. body fat at 9.7%, 66.1% water mass, 7.1% bone mass, 24.5" natural waist circumference (narrowest point between ribs and belly button) and 26.5" abdominal circumference (narrowest point between belly button and hips) with a normal 2" separation between the two mid-section circumference measurements.
My after Fasting Day 2 image in the mirror looked good at 134.9 lbs. after I finally got rid of all the bloating. Though 134.9 lbs. is higher than I'd prefer, the extra weight looks like it went on chest girth and makes me look a bit more stocky. This morning's weight was the same as my weight was at last period, only this time I'll be fasting at least an extra day longer as I have a lot of running around to do tomorrow. I tried to set up the new cat greenhouse but the directions were confusing, the heat was unbearable, my index finger on my right hand got a small cut on it as well as a minor bruise, and my right knee became unbearable to work upon. The knee is what caused me to abandon the effort for the day. Given that I have lots of running around to do, I likely won't give the greenhouse another shot for a day or two. I hate the backyard being a mess, and it does seem to bother the raccoons a bit as they are very reluctant to approach the house. I put in around a half hour of exercise tonight as my right knee needed more time to recover.
Only small numbers of raccoons and possums tonight, likely do to trying to set up the new greenhouse (they really don't enjoy new construction). My regular mother with the five kits were around at second feeding, as well as a possum. I can't get my cat Ashley to come in at the moment, he is on the roof watching the night sky (always a star gazer).
