First blog, first week! Wow what a week.

I bought the book at the airport last week and read it within 24 hours. The next day I was ready to start! No time like the present.

I too was a bit fed up with the same old diets, weight watchers, slimming world, Atkins, high protein, low carbs. I started each with a gusto and then soon went downhill, they were never sustainable.

I like 4:3 as I know I'm a few days away from a bottle of wine and a few chocs, this time without guilt.

I'm doing 4:3 as I have a long weekend around a pool, in the sun in a few weeks and I want to be a size smaller.

The big news is, since this time last week I have lost 7.5lbs.

I have fasted 3 days but let me tell you on Saturday I was out dining in a Thai restaurant, had too much wine and polished off a creme egg and a bag of hula hoops on the way home. I also ate well other non fast days.

I know the results will slow down, but I feel I will stick to this, I'm not a slave to the same old diet week in week out....

I have just started IF again after a long gap. Finding 18.8 more doable at the moment, with similar rate of weight loss. Only time will tell if this will be more successful long term. Good luck Wolfie....

Good to see you back @Bobshouse - very sorry to hear of your loss and like @Sallyo says - be kind to yourself. Sending you best wishes.
