Days since inception: 1406 Current Fasting Period Points: 2 Longest Point Streak: 7 Total Food Days: 361 Total Fasting Points: 1045
Average Exercise During Current Session: exercise time keeps being erratic, I got in a good couple hours of exercise yesterday.
First Recorded Weight (lbs.): 163.5 Total Days since Recording Weight: 1376 Current Weight (lbs.): 137.1 Total Weight lost (lbs.): 26.4
Weight lost during current session (lbs.): -0.2 Most weight lost during a session (lbs.): 5.1 Points of that session: 3 Current BMI: 19.1
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 137.1 lbs., 14.4 lbs. body fat at 10.5%, 65.5% water mass, 7.1% bone mass, 26" natural waist circumference (narrowest point between ribs and belly button) and 28" abdominal circumference (narrowest point between belly button and hips) with a normal 2" separation between the two mid-section circumference measurements.
Some sort of bloating situation going on as my mid-section measurements increased during the last day of fasting while my weight went down. The slow upward creeping of weight likely is tied a bit to some sort of constipation type of problem, which likely isn't a good omen of things to come. Regardless of all that, the desire to take the day as a food day proved too strong and I gave in to take it as a food day. I had meat balls, corn nuts, gummy candy, imitation crab meat, rice crispy bars, and some slices of salami. Once more I put in two hours of evening exercise.
Hardly nobody showed until second feeding, though there was a different possum that showed, one before second feeding and the other after. The raccoons came pretty much at the same time and some of them were my regulars while others clearly were not and ran at first sight of me. The regulars didn't lift an eye and remained unabated. This tells me that the recent lack of regulars showing up at their scheduled times has a lot to do with their gathering together in different areas during mating season, and how the smaller kit families seem to steer clear of those groups and return after they have broken up or have left the area.
