I guess I just joined this forum and threw myself into the first thread I saw which was the Weekly Challenge - totally lacking decorum!!
About me - I'm a 40yo woman living in Sydney. I hit 70kg 6 years ago when I quit smoking. That was 10kg on top of what I was weighing before as a pack-a-day smoker.
I then cleaned up my act, changing my diet drastically from a KFC/Mcdonalds etc diet to a mainly vegetarian diet thanks to influence of my new husband, for whom I'd quit smoking. I turned to a pescatarian diet, and later I stopped eating dairy -thanks to the influence of my sister in law.
During that time ~2012 I read about IF on bodybuilding sites and I gave it a go a couple of times, but It seemed really difficult, so I didn't pursue it.
I have now reached a weight which is ok - but, because I'm finding it awesome to be lighter and to be able to fit into nice clothes, that I have wanted to set myself the goal of reaching a size 6. In fact I've been chasing this goal for the last 4 years since I got down to 58kg - seem a bit shallow - but what the hell
Since that time I've basically gone up and down over and over and never staying at the lower weight.
6 weeks into a 4:3 diet and I've lost 3kg with which I'm so happy - the most progress in a long time!
So hello everyone , and thank you for the support you have given me so far
