The difference is not the decorator but the recursive function call. 
Consider

Case 1:

@deco
def f():
   ...
   f() # calls the decorated function
   ...
f()

Case 2:

def f()
    ...
    f() # calls the undecorated function
    ...
g = deco(f)
g()


The function call f() will invoke whatever the global name f is bound to a 
the time of invocation. So

Case 3:

def f()
    ...
    f() # calls the decorated function
    ...
f = deco(f)
f()

In your code change 

fib1 = isOddMy(fib)

to

fib = isOddMy(fib)

and the without@ version will produce the same output as the with@ version.
