Today the scale verdict is 76kg.
Since I started this is a net loss of 3.4kg, an average of 680g per week, which is just a bit above the lb the majority is experiencing here on the site. Probably this is due to the fact that I have a quite heavy training regime that allows me to loose a bit more even if sometimes I, not counting calories on feed days, exceed my TDEE.
I have taken the six saturday's data and can see the slow descent of weight:
3- 76.5 (friday data. didn' tweight on Saturday)
It seems to me that the weight loss is quite steady apart the first week in which I lost a lot, but that is normal, and an increase last week which I can't really explain.
Important thing is that overall the diet seems to work and the weight is steadlily going down. What I...
Current Trend Weight: 72.7kg (11 stone 6 pounds)
Blood Pressure Readings:- No Data
When I woke up yesterday morning, I felt a bit depressed after some yet more high blood pressure readings and because of that, I decided to take a complete break from taking these readings for now. Because of that, there are no such readings to show in this report which is probably just as well because I would have expected these results to be even higher as a result of yesterday's fasting day.
Anyway, the fact that I was a bit down and depressed yesterday meant that I wasn't really feeling like going through with yesterday's fasting day. Furthermore, I was also feeling a bit hungry yesterday morning, making me realise that I was going to be in for a very difficult day ahead. At that point, I drank some water to quell that 'hunger' and I was fortunate that I had my step class to make my mind off that a bit.
That step class went very well and when I arrived...
Hubby keeps saying he wants to join me but does not feel he can fast all day. At the moment he is having a small breakfast and lunch and the same evening meal as me. I know he needs to cut back further but slowly does it!
This morning my five babies are thriving, mum was out of the maternity house with the chicks so I have set up a broody area so they don't get squished by the bigger birds. I still have two chicks in the broody pen but will today try moving them in with the flock in the hope new mum and babies can have the secure pen. If the other hen hatches her eggs soon it could get tricky!
Our distant farmer neighbour has asked us to clear some weeds as they are compromising his electric fence in places. A job for today, just nettles and a few brambles. Will keep busy and out of the pantry to help me fast!
Have to say I am feeling good just now, no sign of the black cloud. Oh, and yesterday...
I really want to be able to follow 5:2 CALMLY.
In fact, I really felt last week that 5:2 would work for exactly that reason.... That I could be steely and determined on fast days and eat calmly on the feeding days. I have been monitoring calories very rigidly...right up to my 2000. Maybe that is the problem....
