Yeah, after the last two weeks having fairly big drops, this week was much less dramatic - despite still fasting four days. Did I indulge a bit more last weekend being Easter? Maybe a little, I did have some mixed nuts which are a favourite of mine. Or could it be monthly weight gain coming around again? Whatever the reason, I'll take the loss and just keep doing what I'm doing.
So this week I'm down just .4 kg or .88 lb. bringing my total loss since 12th March to 6.3 kg or 13.89 lb. I was hoping for another big number, but it is what it is.
I fasted Monday and Tuesday, ate just one meal Wednesday evening with an Atkins bar and a couple tablespoons no-added-sugar peanut butter for dessert, then fasted again Thursday and Friday. I will be especially careful to eat light this weekend and hopefully see better results next weekend.
I've had a recommendation to try cutting out caffeine to help with weight loss ... that one may be tough because on fasting days I drink a lot of tea and some Pepsi Max (never have liked coffee). I feel like these are the last vices I have and it would be tough to give them up. I could switch to caffeine free Diet Pepsi but I don't like it as well as the Pepsi Max. I find I tend to get dry, scratchy throat sometimes during the day and water alone doesn't seem to relieve it, I need the bubbles in the fizzy drinks sometimes. That and it's so bloody cold in the office where I work - year round - and with cooler weather approaching sometimes a hot mug of tea is desperately needed. We'll see - I'll go another week on the same routine and if I don't see a better result, it may be something to consider.
As far as activities, I've walked half hour to an hour every day, and we'll have another big walk this weekend - that and lots of yard chores should keep me busy. That's it for now, hope you all had a great week.
