I feel I have to stop eating biscuits, factory made ones that is, as I do not know when to stop. I am also picking too much, anything really, bits of cheese, dried fruit. I am not helping myself so this has to stop. I am an intelligent, practical and strong person and I have grabbed control of my life before, I can do so again.

I found a recipe for an anti-inflammatory soup made with carrots, onions, garlic, cinnamon and cumin from The Plan. I calculated the numbers via MFP, but I think this might be on the generous side as I made 4-5 portions, although I counted it as 3 just to be on the safe side (and I'm quite greedy with soup).
Inexplicably, my waist is still 26" yet my hands and face are still puffy. Have not weighed as I made myself a pledge not to until Valentine's Day. However I might change that to this Sunday so I know what my weight is before I head off to California.
In the last week, my sleep hours have reduced by about an hour according to my Jawbone. Steps have also dropped by half. Oh dear. I need to do something about this. However I have a bit of a strange week, so not sure how it will pan out.
would love to hear from anyone else with ME/CFS who is doing the fasting diet and hear about what is working for you.
CW=267.4 down 3 since yesterday and equal to last week's low

Net Carbs = 21g/17%
Sleep = 6:59 87% sinuses kept waking me up
Steps= 3657 only had fitbit on for part of the day.
So yesterday was remarkably easy. It was my first "fast" day this week. I get about 100 calories in the morning from the Cod Liver Oil and the half and half in my coffee and tea, then use the rest of my calories when I get home from work. I did a great job of not nibbling while I was cooking, and did not go back and look for anything after dinner...I did think about it though. But I was not hungry, I just wanted something.
My weight dropped 3 pounds. I am shocked as it regularly goes up and down a pound or so a day but I have not had a down shift that big in a very long time. Yesterday when I saw the number on the scale I was a tad bit disheartened because I saw I was gaining a pound a day on my up days over the weekend...
