Current Weight: 75KGs
Overweight kid. Overweight Teen. I think my highest weight was around 88, but I can't remember exactly. Lowest weight is 63.5kgs.
I lost the difference about 5 years ago (Thanks to a year or so of being depressed. A Silver Lining I'm all to happy to consider) but since then, have been watching it slowly creep back on despite trying to not over eat, and intermittently trying to diet to get it back down, but only managing to slow the trend rather than stop it.
My UserName is BracketCreep for a reason. Not because I'm a creep! But because pretty soon I'll be creeping into the Overweight BMI bracket again if I don't find a better solution.
Strategy: 5:2 or 4:3 depending on my normal days. If I think the normal day is a bit too high, I'll add the extra fast day.
I'll probably just eat a weight watchers or other microwaveable, calorie controlled meal as the main meal on fast days as they're pretty decent and allow some room for dessert as a 'reward'. Probably not the healthiest way to go about it, but I'll adjust to something more wholesome once I'm used to fasting regularly.
March 13 - Fast Day I
During the Day:
3 x Cups of Tea w/milk and Sugar (~120)
1 x Weight Watchers Beef Cannelloni microwave meal (255 Cal)
1 x Vanilla Cupcake (160Cal)
1 x Tea (~40)
It wasn't so bad. I found the tea to take the edge of the hunger and be quite sustaining. It helps to have work to do.
March 14 - Normal Day
Was aiming for 2100 but had a surprise dinner at my friends, which bumped the total up a bit higher than I was aiming for.
Total cals: 2400
I'll make today (March 15) another fasting day. Didn't sleep well last night though, so am very acidy this morning, which is making the hunger seem worse than usual.
