Waist: 82 cm
Healthy BMI again! Weight goes down very slowly, but it is going down. Fasting in a more relaxed mode seems to work for me. Normally I fast on Monday and Thursday, but this is not a law. So, for example, on Ascension Day I didn't fast. The feeling of too much suffering causes an opposite reaction in me: I start feasting on non-fastdays.

So now I am aged 65, weighing in at 22st, and a waist measurement of 50ins, still feeling fit, but knowing I can't be, my hobbies are photography, playing bridge, and going to the theatre, all quite sedentary.

Fasting today for Mr LJ and me - soup is the word of the day
Try not to get too excited! Have a great day especially if Fasting in the Gale X
