No. Any exercise is really casual. I walk a few miles every evening with my wife. That's the only consistent exercise.Was there weight training involved sorry if i didn't catch that?

Just started a 16:8 fasting routine too (and no alcohol), lost 3 lbs in less than a week already. Not snacking in the evenings has been helping with sleep as well. I’m not counting calories and all that but this first step has helped me to clarify where I can tighten up my diet if I choose to. I’ve quit dieting many times before when life and stress have gotten in the way, so I am trying to ease into it as a deliberate, consistent habit sustained for the long term. Maybe I’ll be more flexible once Thanksgiving and Christmas roll around, but it’s like with lifting weights, do it as often that you reasonably can so when something inevitably interferes you have reserves of progress for some flexibility.I'm getting back into a 16:8 fasting schedule. I'll drink some black coffee or green tea during the fast, but nothing with calories. Feeling good, more energetic and on it at work. I do miss putting cream in my coffee though, but I think it is worth skipping it at least sometimes.
Eventually, I'd like to start doing OMAD once a day, going complete days without food (will try to coordinate this with Orthodox calendar), and potentially even multi-day fasts. I find 16:8 fasting quite easy, even a 20:4 type fasting isn't too bad, but OMAD and all-day fasting are a bit difficult for me. I am going to try to look at them more as a spiritual struggle and less of a beneficial physical thing, and see how that changes it.
