Ok so I have been on this diet since 7 August 2013.That was the day after the Horizon programme, Eat, Fast and Live Longer. It has changed the way I eat and probably the way I think about weight, food, health and life in general.
I am over 20 libs lighter - having reached my goal in January - I revised my goal down a few lbs as I fluctuate up and down. So I'd rather my target weight is at the top of the fluctuation, rather than the bottom as it was.
I didn't appear to lose weight for weeks. But I felt thinner and I kept going with the 2 fasting days religiously. People started to comment on my weight loss "have you been losing weight?' Well, d'uh, only about a stone and a half - have you only just noticed?
There must have been a point where my weight shifted from some place to another on my body - which made it more noticeable that I'd lost it. But the scales still stubbornly stayed put. At 9st 9lbs.
Until yesterday - woo hooo now I am 9st 7lbs....or at least I was - yesterday.
Today I was 9st 9lb again. Grrrrrrr.
So this week I am going to weigh myself every day, do the fast - maybe a 4:3 if I can fit it in - and just see what's going on. Really more as a scientific experiment on myself.
And because next week we go on a wee holiday for 5 days. No fasting and lots of drinking so have to have a few lbs in the bank spare so I can put on with impunity.
I'm not getting obsessed do you think?
