It's 4:20pm on this hot and humid day on Maui. So far, I have only consumed water and green tea throughout the day. I learned from the first fast day that I CANNOT split my calories into 3 meals. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner that day was a boiled egg and a small sausage. I figured that just eating protein would keep me fuller. It worked fine until after my dinner. I had dinner at 5:30. At 7:00pm, I felt like I was starving! There was no way I would have been able to sleep with my stomach grumbling the way it was. I gave in and had a snack before bed.

I read some blogs about combining your calories in one meal. I figure I'd try it out. So far, so good for me. Yes, I'm hungry. Yes, I keep looking at the clock to check how much more time until dinner. Looking forward to dinner is certainly an understatement right now =) I just think that this way is better for me.

Good luck, @moderatemeals! I think you'll love this way of life!
Losing 1.6 pounds is hardly a plateau! You are not going to keep losing at the same rate as the beginning. You should be very happy with 1 pound a week!
Thanks for the comment, cblasz.
Maybe this WOE is so successful that everyone's lost the weight and got on with their lives! I can hope ...

Yes, it is terribly dead here, especially lately. I think that people either just have all the information they need or have stopped this WOE. It is a shame. But stick around. It seems to go in waves....
