we can do it Tipperary! So much to enjoy and live forI'm the same with my weight loss plan and am doing it also due to all the family health issues. My parents and my younger brother and sister all have type 2 diabetes. I had 2 aunt's who both died of heart attacks at the exact age I am. I want to be able to walk comfortabley and not think of pain or unfitness. I want to go on holiday (when we are allowed) and be able to walk or climb or swim as much as I want. And if I can get that from a bit of willpower I will. I don't want to be miserable and hungry in order to lose weight but a bit of selfcontrol won't do me any harm.
Yes it is great when that appetite reduction kicks in and anything over 12 hours is good fast wise so your well over that.. still time for a whoosh fingers crossed. your doing great!regarding the much reduced appetite. I forgot to have my dinner last night and ended up eating it at 10pm, much later than usual so didn't do my usual fast for 16 hours if I eat at my usual 12-1300.
I had a midweek weigh in and it shows sts but as I say it's rare I eat that late unless I'm working. Not going to worry about it just having a cuppa and heading out with my dog soon.
Yep, that's the one. It was really interesting to watch. I would love to find a GP here that would support a keto diet and properly analyse my cholesterol and thyroid issues rather than to tell me to stop eating eggs and take statins.@tipperary was the netflix thing perhaps The Magic Pill? it's no longer on Netflix as it's contract ended but it's on youtube. The Doctor mentioned I think is Tim Noakes and you're right he lives in SA
Why is it so difficult to find yoghurt that ISN'T fat free? seriously at my local co-op it's all either low fat or zero and same when I look online at tesco.
Why don't you try Keto Diet. Believe me girls I was trying almost all diets. This is the only one that really works. Try it for yourselfHello
I've been around years ago but lost my log in details, typical serial dieter really. I managed to lose lots a long time ago with a VLC and my body just doesn't seem to respond to slimming world etc because I think they are too free with carbs.
Whenever I've tried losing weight the only thing that seems to work is lower carb so I'm going to try mostly following the fast 800, However I need to accept I'm in this for the long haul so if I need a break now and then that's fine just aim not to regain. I've also signed up for a dog walk fundraiser that will run for March so that's something to get me active. Keeping a diary also seemed to help so... here we are lol.
I've cut myself a lot of slack the past couple of years, having gone through a marriage breakup and now all this covid stuff ongoing but I think it's time for me to start to take care of myself and create a healthier future. I have 2 kids, a dog and work so life is a bit busy! I'm 45 and feel so old and unfit at times I want that to change.
I will weigh in properly and measure everything tomorrow, would like to have as much motivation as possible going forwards so if the scales aren't doing it the inches might. I probably need to lose about 65lb's to be properly healthy but for now I'm going to take it in small chunks. Any loss means I'm healthier than I am right now after all.
I don't mind my progress being slow, so long as I'm doing something, even 2 or 3lbs a month is going to mount up isn't it?
I actually love ADHD, my daughter definitely has it and looking at how alike we respond to things I am sure I am too. Son may or may not be. I actually have come to embrace it rather than seeing it as negative. That's a good idea to make things the kids will eat and freeze them.My son has adhd too and if he doesn't eat the bananas I made banana bread and freeze it. It keeps it out of my mouth lol
