41 weeks: still on track

by Rasa on 08 Jun 2014, 09:37

Weight: 70,5 kg :like:
BMI: 24,7 :like:
Waist: 82 cm :like:

Healthy BMI again! Weight goes down very slowly, but it is going down. Fasting in a more relaxed mode seems to work for me. Normally I fast on Monday and Thursday, but this is not a law. So, for example, on Ascension Day I didn't fast. The feeling of too much suffering causes an opposite reaction in me: I start feasting on non-fastdays. Since I am more relaxed about fasting, my feastdays have almost gone.

Almost. I am still learning and trying. On top of that, I am getting better in 'planning' my feastdays. So today I am going to a beerfestival and will allow myself to enjoy.

I am also trying a more mental approach to food. I am not prohibiting myself to eat chocolate, crisps and so on, but asking myself: do I really want to eat this? And if I want to eat something unhealthy, what do I prefer the most? So not crisps and then chocolate for dessert, but crisps or chocolate. And not a whole bag or bar, but a little bit. Because I only really enjoy the first few bites.

I am still on track, I am waking up fit (needing less sleep), I enjoy seeing my body getting smaller, I make the right choices more often, I feel in control, but it isn't easy...

Vegetarian, fasting on Monday and Thursday
