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: 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.

Weight Log: 15 - Welcome to the yo-yo

Latest recorded weight: 177.5 kg - 391.3 lb - 27 stone and 13.3 lb - BMI: 54.8 Left and right and up and down. I’ll be honest, I am so pessimistic every time I weight myself. Being harsh on myself feels natural. Yet whenever I think I’ve fucked things up, I’ve not. Back to where I was 1st September and I feel like now big social commitments/stresses are done and dusted, I can really re-focus on me again.

Weight Log: 14 - Some form of permanently exhausted pigeon

Latest recorded weight: 178.5 kg - 393.5 lb - 28 stone and 1.5 lb - BMI: 55.1 A couples of days late. As the title suggests, this post is a few days late. I feel like some form of permanently exhausted pigeon right now and its really messing me up. On top of being exhausted in general, I’ve had to cut down my intermittent fasting from 18 hours to 17 hours as I was starting to feel dizzy deep into fasting.

Weight Log: 13 - Just another weight update

Latest recorded weight: 177.5 kg - 391.3 lb - 27 stone and 13.3 lb - BMI: 54.8 No real update this time. Just want to say one thing, Happy Birthday Dad. You should have turned 61 today but you will be forever 59. Miss you. I’ll be having a proper Redington drink in honour later today. Normal update on 15th September.
