So. Been a bit up and down since my first official weigh in (actually two weeks ago, I was guessing before then!). Lost six pounds last week and was sceptical. Seems I was right to be, though was hoping in the meantime... since I put on 2.5 lbs over weekend, despite sticking to my TDEE.
What I need to do then, as you've all rightly said on my moany threads, is to give myself a good hard talking to. In reality, in two weeks of fasting, I've actually lost 3.4lbs, which is not bad at all, given I am hypothyroid. An average of 1.7lbs a week is an average I'd be very happy with, and I'd actually settle for one. This is progress, just not as fast as my delusional weigh in last week suggested!
The fast days have been fine. Some are harder than others but with 3-4 weeks of fasting now under my belt, they are manageable and predictable. Have settled into eating only in the evenings, surviving on tea and coffee with a splash of milk and stevia during the day. And my TDEE on non fast days is just over 1900 cals so I am finding learning about how to stick to that very helpful. I know it will have to go down, but logging my food on MFP is really helping me see I CAN have treats, just not as many as I was used to in the 'Old Days' of stuffing my face thoughtlessly! Overall then, all good so far!
