I know there is a fair bit of debate about whether exercise means weight loss, but I think weight loss should be secondary to exercise anyway. Walking is a great way to improve mental health, sometimes I set off in a state of outrage about something or other, but by the time I've stomped through the countryside I feel a lot better in my mind. And I have "buns of steel" from all the uphill bits so something must be working out right! I've done my fair share of town walking as well - I award points for curtains and lampshades
Managed to stay quite a bit under TDEE yesterday and today is the second Fast day of the week, I'm prepared with sparkling...
I told my husband, and whilst he is scepital, which I cant say I blame him! I have tried so many eating plans. But this one is going to work. I am going to do this! And I read somewhere if you are finding it hard to fast just focus on tomorrow when I can eat and I am sure appreciate my food more.

At the minute tummy rumbling but ignoring it and drinking...

Because I had saved all of my 500 calories for the evening, I was then able to have some instant soup (comprising of 50 calories) and a piece of fruit. To keep my fluid levels up, I had some green tea and water throughout the day. That went quite well, and I followed that up with two non-fasting days where I ate more sensibly. However, I finished my evening meal on the second of those two non-fasting days a bit earlier than normal because since the following day was another fasting day, I then began a complete 24 hour fast which would mean that I would go through a whole 24 hours without consuming any calories, and only some green tea and water.
