On the plus side: I've now lost 20 lbs. I'll see if that's inched further ahead when I weigh in on Friday. My goal had been 33 lbs total weight loss, so I hope to have reached the weight loss goal by the middle of April. In addition, fasting has become a complete and utter doddle for me. It's like I've reached a kind of zen like state. Even my non-fasting days are a bit easier to manage than before, though I do over-indulge some days.
On the hugely encouraging plus side: A lot of people keep commenting about my weight loss. It is such a boost to my determination. I also have a friend who is fasting now and has lost 12 lbs so far. It's great to have more face-to-face allies to share stories/ideas with! Most still look at me with a bit of surprise and curiosity when I tell them I'm fasting (many say 'oh I could never do that.. I'd get too hungry!' hard to explain how the hunger feel really does start to fade...
3 round caramel wafer thingies (the ones you buy from Aldi / Lidls) on my way to the horses this morning – I know these are about 180 calories each.
Sausage egg & cheese bagel plus TWO hash browns from McDs for brekky
An egg sandwich plus a cupcake and handful of crisps for lunch. Oh, and a strawberry
A packet of wotsits
Half a packet of chewits
Half a bag of haribo starmix
Whoopsadoodle. Anyone want to hazard a guess at how many calories I’ve nommed today?
Today though, done a load of walking and spending of pounds! Sadly not on clothes (waiting till I hit another stone off to go shopping!) Went to the toy shop Smyths as they're having a big reduction on Skylander Giants (£5 reduced from £12) also got 2 of the new Swap Force ones for Sofia as she'd been a good girl and earned 15 "gold pennies" (£15) through helping to tidy up and being good! Did end up spending £48 but it's better than the £90 we would of had to pay if they were at full price!!
We also went to the zoo today where I did my full 10k steps and only got out of puff once! saw some baby meerkats which were a massive bundle of cute! ...
On a positive note, my son in law has started 5;2 this week and my wife announced that she is going to join me.
