So this is the last fast day of my trial period and I must say that I’m pleased with the way things are going. I’ve just weighed myself and find I’ve lost 14 pounds (1 stone) or just over 6 kgs in four weeks. That puts me well on track to losing the 52 lbs that is my target.
Some pros and cons of the fasting system – cons first: When fasting I think about food a lot. I tend to feel cold in the afternoons. On the days I can ‘eat what I want’ I snack too much (this is how I got fat in the first place).
Pros: The fasting is not as hard as I thought it would be. I feel very energized on my fast days. I’m feeling mentally positive because I’m succeeding in my slimming program.
Where next? Things are going to start picking up in work. From now until Christmas I’m going to be very busy. I think I’ll stick with the 3 fast days per week system until the end of October and reassess how the weight loss is going from there.
