slow and steady by Sallyo on 10 Jun 2013, 03:40
It's weigh in day. 2 weeks ago I managed to get below 75kg. Then last week I was back up to 75kg. But no grams, so that was the 2nd lowest weight. 74.6kg is my lowest weight. Today it was 74.8kg. So there is a new 2nd lowest. My waist is holding at 92cm, which means I have lost 9cm off my waist. Not bad.

Yes,it is disappointing not to be losing weight every week like some people. But, I am not prepared to count calories on non fast days. I may lose weight quicker, but I'd put it on quicker too, because it wouldn't be sustainable for me. That is the key idea for me. Sustainable. This has to be a way of eating that I can stick to.

I have to think of the big picure. It has taken me 20 years, from age 40 to age 60 to put on all this weight. I used to be quite a normal weight. I can take a year or two to get back to that. It's winter, I am not putting weight back on.

So that's my little pep talk to myself. I can do it, one day at a time, one fast at a time. Slowly and steady.
