Another quick update, as I don’t feel like writing too much. I’m back down to 132.8, which is about the seventh time I’ve been near this mark. Frustrating, however according to Dr. Krista Varady, metabolism slows down when 10% of one’s mass has been lost. I continue to imagine that one of these days I will break that barrier and the weight loss will resume. While eating normally five days a week and restricting calories two is easy to accomplish, I feel that the month I did water only fasting days wreaked havoc on my self-control. I am having to re-learn the art of small bites and eating slowly. Hopefully it will come back quickly.
As I mentioned on a previous post, I am recording everything 5:2 related on Excel. This includes a worksheet for the calories of many different foods, a worksheet for all my fasting day menus, a worksheet for all recorded weigh in results along with a corresponding graph of such, a worksheet for my current BMI and a worksheet for pictures I have taken every month (front view and side view). The last worksheet is not pretty. The reason I’m letting you know that all of this is on Excel is so when I post my last two fasting day menus, you will see how I track my calories.
Here is what I ate last Thursday and last Monday:
If you noticed, I’ve reduced the calories for one egg from 75 to 70. This new calorie data is from the egg carton itself.
Anyway, I am toying with the idea of resuming two posts per week. It will 1) keep me more accountable during my feed days, and 2) will allow me to recall details that I might otherwise leave out due to faulty memory issues.
Thank you for stopping by and thank you all for the encouraging comments. If you haven’t commented, please do. Just a note is nice.
