I'm new to fasting but having tried other "diets", plans etc when my dad saw an article about fasting & it's benefits in a newspaper the other week I thought it sounded interesting so looked into it. I'm doing 4:3 fast mon, wed, fri but still logging my cals on up days so I can keep control somewhat! I don't like to call them feast days as I want to still be thinking healthy and a feast to me is a banquet lol!! I have a lot of weight to lose but this time I'm not stressed about it at all, DD haven't worried me so far luckily.
Anyway it was my first weigh in this morning and I'd list 16lb according to my scales, I thought maybe they were broken so got out my old manual ones & they said the same. Still disbelieving I went out & used a friends. Still 16lb down.
I realise it's week 1 & so my first loss is always a bit higher than normal & a fair bit could be water weight right??
I really don't understand! Great bit of motivation but I aim for 1-2lb a week, off slowly & steadily suits me just fine or I just pile it on just as quickly!!
Is this normal for fasting??
