So despite yesterday being a feed day, I still dropped. I feel the goal of 8st 8 is achievable (probably not 8st 6 though). If I hit 8st 8 then I am on target with the weight loss predicter provided in this forum.
If you read my blog yesterday, you will know I got up to attend a course very early. I suffered all day with dizziness. Of course, I worked so late that I could not get my brain to shut down and didn't fall asleep until after midnight but was back awake for another course at 6am this morning. I feel foggy and dizzy and am dreading my run later.
The course had a lovely pastry breaky with lots ham and cheese croissants and cheese scones. So I took them all and stored them for Sat morning before my run and have stuck to coffee since 6am.
Its now 12pm and I wanted to attempt another liquid fast today. However, I feel so dizzy and I have hunger pangs coming and going. If I didn't have to run later then I would persevere but I don't think it would be clever to run with...
Now, I think that's because my joint problems are influencing my NEAT as it's becoming a noticeable production to do even simple things like take or replace an item on a shelf and I don't pick up post or things on the floor that I'd previously have done without even registering. I don't carry laundry baskets or rubbish bins arounds (much to my inconvenience and irritation). If I go to a supermarket, I have to use a trolley rather than a basket and ask other shoppers or assistants to reach for various items for me. I'm even in the embarrassing position of having to ask people to open some doors for me (I can open a door that I can lean on but can't pull a door open). I'm sure that all of this adds up.
It's also possible that I have some systemic swelling that isn't outlandishly noticeable in any one place but is more generalised.
I've had to scale back on my beloved paddling/kayaking - it's...
I am feeling a lot more comfortable on the 5:2 lately. My last weight loss has given me confidence that it will work. I've been doing it for 4 months. Some months I haven't lost weight. It was a big thing to drop under 75kg. Now I know I just have to be patient and carry on, fast by fast.
The fasts are easier too. Missing breakfast and having miso soup around 3pm and then eating a more or less normal dinner, minus carbs, minus wine, minus desserts.....well, not that normal! .... is manageable and I can keep it up indefinitely. I have started to really appreciate that hollow feeling, that lightness.
One thing I have changed. I'm not going to weigh every week. I don't lose weight that fast and it's depressing and discouraging to get on the scales and see the weights not shifting, going up, going...
If i dont blog tomorrow hope everyone has a good weekend
