Since week 3 I've had days that I stuck to 800cal and under 50 carbs (BSD) and days that I've had upto 1000cals and under 50 carbs. I've had a few days that went over that on cals and carbs but I don't think over TDEE. I think I'll stick to what I'm doing at the moment. It's very doable and I'm happy with the speed of the weight loss.
In the last 3 weeks I've had a 1lb gain, the next week was just over 2lbs lost and today I'm down just over 2lbs again. Today I weigh 166.2lbs. Really happy about getting under my 12st (168lbs) sticking point.
Start weight: 186 lbs
After week 8: 176.4 lbs
-9.6lbs in 8 weeks on 5:2/4:3
BSD start weight: 178.6 lbs (weight after non-fastday)
After week 2 : 169.6 lbs (just under 3.5 lbs lost this week. 9lbs lost in 2 weeks)
After 3 weeks of a more relaxed BSD : 166.2lbs (3.4lbs in 3 weeks) (ok, can now see how much relaxing the plan has slowed the rate of loss. I should have lost that in a week. I think I need a rethink )
Total weight loss in 13 weeks : 19.8 lbs (1 stone 5.8 lbs)
Cor, it's been all go this end - I haven't known if I've been coming or going just lately with various commitments - so I haven't managed much time on the forum. Have read, but not posted...
Anyways, thought I'd swing past to say very well done! In just the same way that @tracieknits mixes it up so successfully, you are doing a fabulous job experimenting with ways of eating that you can sustain and fit into your lifestyle. Your review of what you've been doing was most interesting on the stats front, wasn't it? Talk about onwards and downwards eh? The wonderful thing is, you are still in a great mindset - however you mix it up.
I've decided we should dispense with the "just" part, Dee....and insert "totally" instead! Henceforth, I shall be referring to you as "TD"....coz there's no "just" about you! Look what you're doing on here! Running the summer challenge....going around awarding stars and encouragement to your fellow challengers, plus losing weight all the time....not bad, I say!! It is a joy to read your posts.....
Unusually for me, I'm going to keep this brief (believe it or not, this is brief for me!) coz it's past midnight. I'll write more tomorrow, but in the meantime, keep doing what you're doing, TD, coz like you, it's totally brilliant!
You should keep in mind that weight will come off more slowly as you get to your goal. I'm not sure what Pernelle's weight was before she lost so many pounds, but at 166, your weight will likely come off more slowly than 2 pounds a week. Sad but true. I'm still just above 200, so 2.5lbs per week is still reasonable for me. But I know that once I lose more, it's going to start slowing down.
In the end, you need to do the plan that you feel you can do without too much hardship
I agree with all you said @Tracieknits, sooo true
