Hi! I'm new here but figure this place is the best forum for my diary. I'm doing some sort of calorie cycling, starting on Wednesday. I'm not sure of the specifics yet, but I'm definitely going to include some form of fasting as I've done it before and it really helps to regulate my appetite. My ultimate goal is to lose 50lbs but my interim goal is to lose 28lbs (2 stone) by my 40th birthday in 11 weeks time. I know this is a big ask, but I'm going to try. Here are my minimum goals: 1. 15000 steps every day 2. strength exercises 3 x weekly 3. create a calorie deficit over the week by eating healthily, exercising more and fasting at least one day a week. I'm going to weigh in on a Monday so this week will be a short week.
