Saturday 1st thing I weighed 62.0k :victory: (my lowest ever)Weekend non diet and am still 62.0k (YAY) but must be extra careful as I'm off to Plymouth for a long weekend FRI-MON to see my beautiful girls- my daughter and Granddaughters. Past history tells of up to 4kg weight increase with sloooooooow loss (up to 2wks to lose :cry: ) SO MY PLAN IS: MONDAY & WEDNESDAY FAST=300-500kcals :starving: TUESDAY & THURSDAY REDUCE =500-800kcals :neutral: FRIDAY FEED =800-1200kcals :smile: FEAST = Not counting...

12lb in 7 weeks. Slow but sure but I'm not in the proper mind set. I started fast yesterday but lost the plot at lunch time. I just kept eating. Ham and chees roll, sausage roll and crisps. Evening had my 300 cal meal i had prepared the day before but one hour later crisps and cheese...... I have woken up this morning upset and angry with myself. I will sort of fast today , I will have soup 76 cals and 1 ryvita 34 cals but we are going out for dinner tonight with some friends who are coming to stay for weekend.

I do do do want, NEED to do this and I know only I can do it and only I can wreck it but I seem to be on self destruct ( I am crying writing this) I need a kick up the ar***.

Not sure what to write - it has been so long since I posted here! Since the November post, I did go back to fasting until the end of the year. It is a habit that has been so firmly ingrained, the familiarity has become reassuring to me. But what is the point of fasting when on non-fast days, I eat too much?
So very deliberately starting in 2015 I made a special effort not to fast. It was so very hard, but I knew deep down that I needed to address my relationship with food as a priority before it gets completely out of control.

The first thing that happened was that I read this ... t-fat.html and made a start. There is nothing earth shattering about this plan apart from the fact that there is alot less food than I have been eating in this past...

I've been thinking about a discussion in another thread.

There is a vast amount of baking/food preparation in my home and sizeable food stores, @Sassy1. Somehow, I never think of it as 'mine' (as in, a food option from which I should select my day's menu).

A lot of it is stored in boxes and what I can't see, doesn't call to me. If I have something that my DH can't stop eating then I will freeze or dehydrate it: if it's not suited to this then the item is portioned up and distributed to neighbours/family/colleagues/sports club, after he's had an appropriate portion.

I know that I notionally have the freedom to eat anything that I want and this might help me not to experience a sense of deprivation or restriction. Most of the time I choose not to eat items...
