following: LCHF: Low carb, High fat / Ketogenic Diet
performance: losing 0.6 lb a week
My weight loss journey started Aug. 15, 2013. That day I weighed in at 249.6. I panicked. And immediately joined to Atkins. My weight loss there was super slow, it took me 3 months to lose my first 11 lbs. Then for 3 more months I lost nothing. Around this time I found low carb, high fat by www.dietdoctor.com/lchf. And it was similar to Atkins so I blended the two.
On Jan. 30th I started intermittent fasting, and I lost right away 1.6 lbs. I was hooked. I have since that time lost 12.4 lbs so on my feast days I eat low carb, high fat. And on my fasted days I have water, diet pop, coffee w/ heavy cream, and sugar free popsicles and jello. My calories are under 400. Technically a fast is straight water, mine is modified to help me get through the fast. It works.
It's taken me 9 months to lose 33.4 lbs. My weight loss journey is going to be a long one. I need patience, and persistence.
My Mini Goals are:
198 lbs * get below 200 IN PROGRESS
Wear size 12 jeans
160 lbs * lets hubs see me nude
Lose the pooch (belly)
Get into size 10 jeans
UPDATE: 10/26/2014: I quit all artificial sweeteners. That was tough. I do not fast with diet soda, or jello or popsicles as they contain sucralose or aspartame. I quit those Sept. 9th cold turkey. I was stuck at 213 for months. But since I quit those I am now 208.. I'm super excited. I'm getting close to breaking into One-derland. I am fasting still every Sunday but I also do 2 fat fast each month to help me get down.
Thanks for stopping by and reading about me. If you are into fasting, or intermittent fasting and you are dropping weight please do write to me. Seems like its a small circle of people who frequently fast.
Take care! And wish you much success.
