Ktcymru Fasting for Freedom!
So this is it, 2014 & I'm 32 & still overweight.
I've tried it all but nothing has stuck, yoyo should be my middle name! It stops now. I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia last year which along with my PCOS goes some way to explain my state of mind (& body) these last few years. I find exercising regularly quite difficult due to the pain my body feels on a normal day but no excuses as yoga & meditation are slowly starting to help
Just after Christmas I was chatting to my Dad about how my weight had started really upsetting me, I was 17st 9lb the heaviest I've ever been, I hate buying size 20 clothes :-( He had just read an article about intermittent fasting and was planning on doing it himself to shift a bit of Christmas weight. I looked into it and thought it sounded like a good plan for me too.
So since January the 6th I've been sticking to 500cals on Mon, Wed & Thurs and eating smaller healthier portions on the other days. I refuse to call them feast days as my personality just doesn't suit that lol!!
I use MFP to track my food & exercise, I love lists so counting cals appeals to me. Strange I know!
Anyway 2 weeks down & I'm loving it & plan to keep it up so I thought to help my accountability I'd start my diary on here as I know how much it helps.
So far I've lost 16lb & hoping that another lb or 2 have come off when I weigh in tomorrow.
