Wow. I cannot believe it I am already 4 week in. Usually by now on other diets I am secretly thinking to myself – “is this worth it?” – But not this time. I am in love with this new way of life, even though the past 2 weeks the scales have not shown good numbers.
The fasting is getting easier, but some days are easier than others.
Last week was a gain of 500g – and I know your all asking yourself if I have had a decent bowel movement – lol TMI? — Well since you asked “I did a little thank you” and the weekly results are in: (more…)
My third week has been the best so far. I have slept better, not needing to eat until late afternoon and think I am starting to find what pattern works for me.
I feel so much better for it, and I am finding myself more and more in love with this way of life. I have never been on a diet before where I was proud to tell people that I was on a new diet. I have tried many different diets in the past, and it is always a well kept secret from all my friends and family as I don’t like knowing as I always fail. “not this time – so sir”
This week was the week that my husband registered this web address for me to start my blog, and it was not until the weekend that I started playing around trying to navigate my way through this unfamiliar world of blogging.
I also weighed in and to my surprise I had actually put back on the 500g that I lost last week. So I am back to the 3kg loss that I had in my first week.
The choice is yours – you choose how you would like to eat. So if you can manage to only eat 1200 calories on your non fast days then you can, however this would not be considered a 5:2 diet, it is more like an extreme 7 day a week calorie restrictions diet of only 1000 calories a day.
How? – I hear you ask. I have tried to break it down for you below, by showing it to you in a mathematical equation. (more…)
Now that this blog is up and running I will try to get posts done to catch up for the last few weeks for my Journal entries.
So my second week was definitely better than my first. I have started to listen to my body signals more and I am actually understanding that hunger passes and is not something that comes on and stays with you all day. Just having a drink and waiting around 10-15mins and it subsides.
This weeks weigh in at the end of the week was a loss of 500g.
