I completed my first fast of week 3 yesterday and although got through it , from mid afternoon until evening felt light headed and fatigued . I don't mind feeling hungry but it's those symptoms that worry me as the ability to work and drive concern me . I would also like to go the Gym but it just doesn't seem possible yet on a fast day !
I don't mind persevering but would be reassuring if I knew it was all pa for the course and others have had similar experience ?

The Girls Weekend really messed with the nice momentum I was feeling since starting. I came back with the expected weight gain, but kept on having UP days. So I basically had an UP week these past seven days :bugeyes: I will restart tomorrow and do 4:3 (Sat, Mon, Wed) until I get to at least 130. I'm afraid to weigh now. When I weighed on Tuesday I was up to 134. I haven't logged that anywhere. All my apps on the iPad and IPhone keep sending my annoying notifications reminding me that I haven't recorded my weight in a few days! Well I KNOW THAT! Can't you see I'm in denial!
On a good note, DH has lost 5 lbs! That more than makes up for my bump in the road.
He's happy about that and is all on board to do 4:3. Also, my daughter has lost 3 lbs. Yay!

Well, I did it! Really was scared that my stomach would be upset with two flights on a day of fasting/repairing. Just another myth! See I can do it. Why do I doubt so much? What I'm learning: my body isn't some fragile thing that has to eat every few hours. Everytime I think I can't do it, I do! I thought I couldn't fast while visiting my sister, I thought I couldn't fast when flying and I thought I couldn't fast while exercising! I've done all of these things and very well too! And the best of all, I really like how I feel! I have more energy and feel in control of myself. (even though I pigged out at a party).

I will reach my goal weight! I have no doubt! Tomorrow morning I'll see how much I slid back while on vacation - but I'm not worried! I can lose the weight again.

Strange that my kids didn't even notice that I wasn't eating while flying half way across the US.

Fasted that is. Not quite so easy but kept out of the house away from temptation and managed to last until my evening meal. I feel I could eat more but will not allow myself as I am within my 500cals. Currently drinking more water, it is weird but the more water I drink the more I want to drink. It means two nightly trips to the loo but I know it is good to be properly hydrated.
So, I had a glass of wine with dinner last night and enjoyed it. I refused the evening chocolate though. Although I cannot call myself alcohol free I am happy with an occasional glass of something. It is much better than the regular drinks. Moderation in all things.
I am tired this evening but feeling happy and looking forward to breakfast tomorrow.
Next fast is Thursday

Still so many sweets, nuts and candy around the house but holidays are over and that kind of eating is over too. Tomorrow will be my second fast day. I joined the Valentine Challenge and hope to be in the 140s by Feb 14th.So thankful for all the encouragement here on the forum.
