Many of you will remember me here from a few years ago. Fasting got me well into the healthy BMI as my weight was rising through menopause. Roll forward two years in California, portion sizes too large and living too near to Napa Valley.... Fasting was half assed at best, and I gave it up for a while as it was too stressful on my adrenals.
I have returned to the UK with a waist to height ratio of 0.50 when just two years ago it was 0.40. Whilst my body shape has changed post menopause, that still roughly translates to 3 dress sizes larger which I managed to ignore living in the sunshine wearing sweatpants most of the time and vanity sized clothes. I have hidden it well and continue to do so, but I am concerned about health issues and fasting is a great way of improving health markers.
So that was then and this is now, and I'm determined to get back. I'm not weighing myself as it is a miserable way to live, but I do have 20 pairs of jeans in the cupboard that don't fit me ranging from UK size 6 to 10.......
I know how to eat real foods, but I'm having to relearn portion control and staying in check on non-fast days, so I'm back to diligently recording on MFP.
Thanks for reading and I will check in regularly with my progress.
