Intermittent Fasting

Ripped from my blog post “Weight Log: 10 - 125 days of Intermittent fasting” Let us start with the basics, what the heck is intermittent fasting? Intermittent fasting (IF) is an eating pattern that cycles between periods of fasting and eating. It doesn’t specify which foods you should eat but rather when you should eat them. In this respect, it’s not a diet in the conventional sense but more accurately described as an eating pattern.

Weight Log: 17.5 - Booster blowout

Latest recorded weight: 176.6 kg - 389.3 lb - 27 stone and 11.3 lb - BMI: 54.5 17th November I had my booster an oh lordy that was… an event. I had a rare adverse reaction to it and ended up in A&E then having 8 days off work. Better now and booster bolstered so all good. With all that you get a half post. Shocked at my loss considering I was bed bound for nearly a week but yeah I’ll take a win.


Weight Log: 17 - My diet is trash

Latest recorded weight: 178.7 kg - 394 lb - 28 stone and 2 lb - BMI: 55.2 Absolute trash. You can already tell what went wrong. I let my focus on eating slip and I fell off the diet wagon. With my metabolism being so wrecked thanks to elevated cortisol levels, I fall hard when I fall off the diet. I’ll get back on it, I always do. Blogging about this twice a month has been a journey in understanding my own behaviours and patterns.

Weight Log: 16 - Some much needed time off

Latest recorded weight: 178.5 kg - 393.5 lb - 28 stone and 1.5 lb - BMI: 55.1 A pattern emerging. Up and down, up and down. Bit of a pattern emerging here huh? Granted I’ve not really made and changes or pushes to break the plateau. Spoke with my clinical psychologist from the weight management clinic and she is very happy with where I am so next appointment will be in a year.
