Well just weighed in for week 2 and didn't have any loss which is disappointing. :frown:

I didn't gain though so I suppose that is a plus. I guess this means I will have to start counting calories on my non-fast days, which I was hoping I wouldn't have to!

I've worked out that for me to lose 1kg per week my calories should be 1400 per day, so if I only have 500 each fast day and 1800 on non-fast days, then that averages out to 1400 per day over the course of one week. :geek: I'll try that this week and see what happens. 1800 cals for the day sounds ok. Has anyone else tried this sort of approach? I'd be keen to hear from you! :smile:

Sad as my Mum died last Sunday. Decided to give myself a break so haven't fasted this week. Still lost a lb though. I feel I am definitely eating less at mealtimes and eating more mindfully instead of shovelling food into my mouth. Will probably fast again Monday and Thursday this week and see how that goes.

Third day fast is over on Friday and then it’s was the weekend. I do not plan to fast weekends as I am around the family and they want me to cook and do motherly things.

I did manage to walk home from the event on Friday, even taking a longer route so that I had 1 hour walk in total. I then kept myself busy and ate. I was starving so long walks while fasting is not a viable option for now. I do a short walk in the mornings and leave evenings free to do other things. I hope that it will change eventually when the body is more used to the fasting business.

We have the boat out now so there will be days where I will be picked up for a trip on it before I head home, those days will be take out days. I must say spending the day out in the fresh air and sun is really tiring. I was not starving or anything, I actually bought a salad for my lunch. Coming home means I ate and went to bed early. The day was spent by moving and using my body. I am not much of an eater at home, I tend to lose weight a...

Such a long time with no blog so it's time for a catch up.
It was my birthday on Friday - 62.
I haven't lost any weight since last summer and I'm ok with that, but I hope I do lose more when this summer comes.
I wore my new red dress to the party on Saturday. It was bought with local currency and is quite a posh dress. I even bought some lipstick to wear with it as it was the kind of dress that made you think 'lipstick'. Everyone complimented me on my appearance and I think it was the weight loss as well as the red dress. I don't wear stockings so I wore black leggings under neath which looked a bit odd, but so what! I reckon when I get to 62 I can wear what I like to my own party.
I have been fasting nearly 18 months and it is hardly an issue any more. I just do it. I have learned some tricks. I think it's good to have nothing all day and then have a more or less normal evening meal, early but no wine or heavy carbs.
The house renovations which were in full swing when I started fasting...
