So, I accidentally fasted today. I'm just now starting to get hungry. I had my usual dinner last night and woke up not so hungry. Funny thing is, I do this quite often. I have a pretty active job/life, but to go 16 hours before getting hungry just naturally occurs sometimes now. I remember a time when I couldn't go 4 hours without thinking about food.

The cravings almost seem diminished. I can't tell if this is all mental, if I'm just busy enough at work so I don't need the distraction of food, or what... anything to be worried about?

I know on my days off, I'm pretty active, but it's all play and fun stuff. I'm always relaxed and take full advantage of my downtime. But while resting, I'm still not focusing on food and can go any entire day without getting hungry and then eat a filling meal at the end. maybe I've just been doing IF all along, but I've just learned to listen to my body...

I'm not starving myself, trust me... and 90% of the time, I'll get all my vitamins and macros in. Just some days I'll only require 900 calories to fuel the engine.

I envy people like you! I take one bite and then 'get stupid'. You're doing fine!

I'll post my backstory in a few days when I get more time. Not much to envy... just years of developing discipline that is now - I guess - on autopilot. It takes a LONG time and lots of trials to undo bad habits, but it takes even more courage to continue to stay the course than to just go 100% then quit within the first year because you aren't seeing the desired/anticipated outcome. Set small goals over a longer time and they're easier to achieve and add up quicker. "I wanna lose 15# in 3 months" is much easier and more realistic than "I wanna lose 60# in 6 months." It takes longer, but it's healthier and developed sustainability for after the goal has been reached! Never give up... EVER!

Awww... again, another past for another time, but I'm like the "weight loss guru" at work. When people are chit-chatting at work, I'll hear "oh, go talk to Chris" and I'll know someone has a fitness or nutrition question heading my way lol. I've used this metaphor before: I'm not trying to make anyone envious by posting this or trying to brag by telling you where I'm at... it's kinda like seeing a sports legend on TV as a kid: A goal. A motivator. Something to strive for. Do your training, put in the time and effort and - like you'll hear Rosio saying all the time: "I did it - anyone can do it!" I'm definitely here to help, encourage, advise, and get people to their goal and NOT here for the validation! I'm very comfy with who I am. Now it's just a matter of getting everyone else across the finish line!
