    Trying a fresh!

    So, been doing SW 'properly' from home since January this year.
    I've pretty much been around 11st4 since having kids and occasionally seen that creep up towards 12, I do two weeks of SW to bring it back then give up again!
    Since joining minis I have happily lost nearly a stone but now I have been wobbling around struggling to reach the stone and then get to my target of 10st..

    I've got a couple of health issues that don't help:
    Severely inflamed back around L5 vertebrae for the last two years since beginning running, but perhaps not properly(?) which is being investigated and currently waiting for the next appt which is with a spinal surgeon- so all this stops me from doing exercise as I had been doing (!)

    Secondly, the pain I'm in means in taking cocodamol which is know for constipation side effects so I'm also on drugs to conquer that! Joy

    Thirdly, I had an IUD fitted just over a month ago so I am now battling the early side effects of that - mega bloating and pain and having read up on it it seems some women do gain weight.. Pah!

    So, I feel like I have the odds stacked up against me right now!

    I've decided time for a change of diary, and some super refocussing on shifting what is currently the last 6.5lb

    Last WI I was 146.5lb which had been a STS since the week before..

    I find it fine - I think it's more a change of habit than anything really.

    Have you read the book? I got mine for my kindle for only a couple of quid and it really helps you to understand the science behind it. I think, like most things, if you don't fully understand something, it can be difficult to follow.

    I find hunger comes in waves, I just drink plenty of water or keep myself busy with exercise/activities instead. After the first couple of weeks they just became a way of life for me, I got used to them.

    I think the trick is definitely to plan meals well. It's really important to make every calorie count.

    On my fast days I tend to have breakfast mid-morning - hold off for as long as I can. It's normally some oats and fruit, sometimes with yoghurt too.
    Lunch is almost always a form of protein with low calorie salads.

    The longer you do it, the smarter you get at it!

    I've recorded quite a few of my food diaries on fast days in my food diary on minimins - the link is in my signature if you want to take a look

    I too combine SW with fasting, although I've chosen not to eat at all on fast days, I tend to drink black coffee, water, diet soft drinks and herbal/fruit teas.
    When I'm 'hungry' I have a drink and distract myself with something
    Within 5-10 mins I'm fine again

    Good luck

    Just needed a completely fresh start! In a mental way too! Lol

    It was ok, I ended up on 600 cal and was a bit quiet and went to bed early in the evening.. Will try again on wed, and I am hoping a couple of weeks of this might just boost the sw!
