Fasting to a New Me 16lbs gone forever.
Hello all. I have just started fasting today, this is my very first down day so I thought I'd start a diary here for my own sake to see where I have been. I am not new to weight loss as you will be able to see from my profile. I've been about here for years! Still weigh much the same though :-(
I have read plenty about this way of eating and think it may work well for me. I am going to go the 4:3 route to see how it goes and plan to make my DDs Monday Wednesday and Friday, weighing in on a Saturday morning. I really can't decide whether or not to count my UDs in any way, calories or whatever. The thought of just eating what I fancy is a terrifying one but it does work for other people and is of course much more doable than counting everything, especially in the long term.
I am going to stick to meal replacement shakes for the first 2 weeks, as recommended in various places. Makes it easier to be precise at the beginning anyway. I have committed to 3 weeks of this regime totally 100%, then I have friends coming to visit, I have promised them to stick to it until they are over no matter what and then reassess then.
DAY ONE!! Weight 213 pounds
(I am a serial weigher so am going to try really hard to stay off the scales until Saturday morning)
