Hips - 39 ins loss of 0.25
Fat % 31.3 loss of 0.7%
I'm reasonably pleased with that, espcecially having read the thread regarding the average weight loss on this woe. At this rate I should theoretically be down to my target weight just in time for our holiday in Scotland in May. On my second fast day this week I saved all my calories for one meal in the evening. I never thought I would be able to do this, but it worked really well and may well do this on both fast days next week.
In addition as I'm doing the GNR this year (deferred from last year) I'll soon be embarking on a proper training plan for that. At the moment I'm doing 6-10 miles a week over 3 sessions on my treadmill, and may be one or two HIIT sessions on the t/m as well. I'm currently checking out training plans, and will probably start seriously in March....
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...
Had a rotten day today - nothing of any interest but rain and nothing to do and feeling low. Decided to say Fxxk it and ate what I liked. Still not breakfast or alcohol but had crispy duck for lunch then egg and chips, chocolate pudding and ice-cream for dinner. I had toad-in-the-hole for dinner last night and feel as though I have completely lost the plot. Tomorrow is a fast day after which I am going to start using My Fitness Pal again and trying to make sure I stay more or less within my TDEE when not fasting. Right here we go again.
