First Fast

by vickiej on 25 Apr 2013, 09:08

I woke up excited! I cant wait to embrace this way of eating. So today have sort of planned my day as much as I can. I am on annual leave so not sure if that makes things easier or not. So I have had 2 coffees so far and have used some of my 500 cals for milk as I feel one change at a time. Eventually I will try black coffee. I am going to have 2 meals, lunch at 1pm then dinner about 6pm. I have my friends dog staying so my prior arranged visit to costa has become a walk in the park with a very supportive friend.
I told my husband, and whilst he is scepital, which I cant say I blame him! I have tried so many eating plans. But this one is going to work. I am going to do this! And I read somewhere if you are finding it hard to fast just focus on tomorrow when I can eat and I am sure appreciate my food more.
I find this blog really helpful and the forums are excellent. So I may come back later and let you know what my first fast brings.
At the minute tummy rumbling but ignoring it and drinking plenty :smile:

If it doesn't challenge you then it doesn't change you :)

Good luck vickiej, I think it's a good idea to start in annual leave time because you can spend time planning, there are so many recipe ideas here and advice about absolutely everything and any question that may cross your mind. Spending time on this forum has helped me incredibly.

Hi I'm on my fourth day, today I decided to go all day & save all my calories for dinner.The good thing about it is I'm now picking up my grand children after school & we are going out for tea so I'm really pleased it will work out with having 500 cals. spare..... black tea& coffee going down a treat though plus plenty water..... good luck. :grin:

Thanks for your comments. Gemini i agree totally about the planning, and i now know i will be able to do this at work! But everything is in the planning! Ruthie i think thats a great idea, i find the longer i go without food the easier it becomes. So today i am on my 2nd fast and going to just eat at supper time :) good luck to both of you! Just about to read your blog Gemini! i really find this blog and whole site inspiring!
