    On the second fast day, i was at work so i bought a smoothie which was a bit over 200 cals and had a salad roll for dinner. I think the bread may have taken me a smidge over 500 cals but i'm not too concerned so long as i stay around that number. I drink a few cups of green tea throughout the days as well which are zero calories.

    On non-fast days you just eat as normal. I'm just trying to eat relatively healthy. I cut dairy out of my diet a while ago, I'm avoiding most processed stuff, and not doing much else special. I took the kids to the movies yesterday and we had a bit of a pig out on popcorn and soft drink so you can still have a junk if you want.

    I do my fast days separately. I think that's much easier than trying to do 2 in a row. Restricting calories twice a week is easier than restricting and counting everyday which i guess is why it works so well.
    Sorry to jump in to the thread, but are you also exercising @HarvestMoon?

    About 25-30 kgs all up. There are success stories out there for people who only want to drop a few kgs though. I think it can work for pretty much anyone. Men are meant to lose weight much quicker as well.... so unfair!

    Well done! You deserve a great result for all your commitment!

    Realised I never said what I'd like to achieve. And an actionable and measurable goal is far more likely to be achieved!

    I am ~72/73 kg at the moment. I think I've lost a kg or so through all the walking I've been doing the last 2/3 weeks.

    I would like to be 65kgs. It's a challenge for me but an achievable one. At this weight my clothes look good, I'm a size 10-12 (mostly a 10) Even better would be 60kgs but I don't want to make it too hard and discourage myself.

    I don't want to do a diet, count calories, etc. I know I'll get too obsessive and I want a sustainable change that ticks away in the background rather than something I have to apply conscious effort and decision-making to each day.

    Today I haven't had anything sugary or even sweet. Feeling really good and extremely balanced! There's a lot to be said for the roller coaster that sugar puts our system through!

    Tonight is chicken, veggie and quinoa soup from h/m stock.

    ~ 6km of waking today.
