My progress, by Doodle
18 Mar 2013, 07:31
Well, I am one week in and I have lost 3lb. (Have to say I weigh far too often, so I know the weight fell off early in the week, but didn't go back up on my eating days, so that's encouraging.)
I know the first week or so will show larger losses until things settle down, but I'm not complaining!
So, fast number 3 starting now and I am trying missing breakfast for the first time today. I'll see how I go. I'm a bit anxious about it, but if it's too difficult, I'll have something - I will try to be stress free!
I am so glad I found this site. Full of supportive people and all the information I could need! :grin:

Well, today the scales say I have stayed the same (although sneaky looks at the scales showed a loss which has now disappeared). I put it down to preparations for Passover and I have done a lot of cooking (and eating!) this weekend, so I'm not too worried. I will have my fast days on Wednesday and then Friday or Saturday to fit in with the festival. This is the one time of year when I usually put on weight, so to stay the same will be my aim.

I am so pleased with myself! I weigh the same today as I did a week ago, and at this time of year, that's a complete miracle! I am fasting today as well, so I feel in control and ready to move forward :smile:

In the Progress discussion (I think--sorry, no time today to find it) someone posted a long term (6 mo. I think) chart of their weight loss with daily weigh-ins. It was lots of little up-down zigzags with definite diagonal downward trend from the top left corner to the bottom right corner. It was tremendously heartening and convinced me to post my weight daily. I think it is actually more accurate and motivating than weekly weigh-ins, especially for 1 to 4 pounds on a regular basis. Seeing that visual of an overall downward trend is awesome!

Thank you, everyone. Bordergirl, I have read that and agree it is great seeing the zig zags going down. I do actually weigh everyday (always have!) so I have a similar zig zag in my head, but I'm posting weekly results on this thread to be my personal record. I am quite positive about this plan.

I'm kind of curious about this weighing every day lark, but I'm a bit nervous about doing it. I'm usually a strict once a week girl, same time, same place.
Im not sure how I'd feel if the scale went up.
I suppose I could give it a for a couple of weeks and use the App that was talked about on the original thread. I'm going to go off and see if I can find it.
