Weight Loss Wednesday

Posted on: January 29, 2020

As my regular readers know, I gained weight due to menopause and before I could conquer that, my sister passed and I gained   

more during this three years of intense mourning.
In September I turned 54 and had a really tough downhill spiral as , it was the birthday my sister never reached. She passed 6 weeks prior to hers.

The top photo was right before Christmas and my wake up call,

as I saw how chubby my face was.

Don’t get me wrong, I still felt pretty, just not healthy.

While the second photo was a few weeks into doing Intermittent  Fasting My downward spiral lasted all the way through the holidays at which point, I snapped out of it and began doing Intermittent Fasting. 

Dr. Jason Fung is all over YouTube with lengthy explanations of Intermittent Fasting, 

Here is the shortest one I could find,

He also wrote a book Obesity Code that I m listening to on Amazon Audible. 

Facebook as Intermittent Fasting Groups for more information as well. 

You can do anywhere from 16 hours or more. I vary from 16 to 24 hours a day, with my preferred fasting time of 20 hours. I fast daily and do a 24 hour fast every Saturday. The most important thing to understand is that this is not about starvation , but about eating your calories in a shorter time frame to allow body to get into fat burning mode. I have to say it was easier than I ever imagined it would be. 

This Article on how much water we need and why is great! 

 I drink between 80-100 ounces of water.
Best of all my results have been that the afternoon brain fog is gone and I have so much more energy! I have lost some inches , but the scale has stayed the same.  I am not worried about the scale and hardly ever think of weighing myself.

I am 30 days into the journey and have just started working out three days a week on my Pilates machine with Resistance bands. It truly is a full body work out in 20 minutes. I will bump things up after a month on this schedule.

Next Wednesday I will describe my daily food intake.

I bought several lightweight sweaters like the one I am wearing here 

from  Loft Outlet this season.   

I also highly recommend Loft Ponte Leggings.

I still love wearing two necklaces, lol 

The long tassel is by Joan Rivers via QVC 

It is on sale for $38.16 and comes in gold, silver or rose gold.  

My Ruby Pendant is by Samuel B and no longer available,

Here is the current collection of pendants 

Gratitude 

I am grateful for my silly rabbit who is current licking my foot while I type, every day 

she does something new and entertaining and delights me! 

I am grateful for my Full Spectrum Happy Light therapy, using it now 

I am grateful for dear friends and morning text chats.  

I am grateful for Intermittent Fasting and what I see as a new life long journey!  

Please comment, ask questions, your feedback keeps me motivated
