Belt don't lie.

by juliusi on 19 Apr 2013, 07:08

Ok so today after my 11th fast I jump on the scale eager to receive some good news from my friend (lately, most of the time enemy) down there on the floor and what is the response: 75.3Kg a new PB and almost below the 24 BMI mark (for what is worth).
I know that the number is a consequence of my fasting and running yesterday, but tomorrow is my official weigh in day when I will have finished my 5th week on 5:2 and will then draw the conclusions, but so far so good and I can look at tomorrow with great hopes.
More than the scale what is giving my really good signs is the belt I use with my jeans. I started from -3 hole on it and can easily go into -1 (there aren't any more left), but I am using the second. I am just doing like Bubka when doing the pole vault and attempting his world record. He was advancing just one centimeter at the time and therefore getting the most of it (above all money), by improving little by little.
So do I. I move one notch at the time and leave to myself more joys for the next days.
Now three days of feeding. I hope to keep things under control even if I have two runs planned that should help me as usual.
Only 1.3kg to my target and over a month to reach it.
Good, good, good.
Ciao, ciao,
