    Hello fasters,

    Checking in on floors:

    (731 floors total) 120 – 36 = 84 FTG (floors to go)

    ⚡️

    Strengthening at the end only. Unable to do sprints because all the treadmills were occupied. I missed doing those sprints!

    ✔️

    I had hoped to start with the next virtual mountain in October. Oops.

    @ fast for life
    “Loss to date: 43.25 lbs
    total loss for september 4.25 lbs”

    Great steady pace!

    Will October be another 4.25 lbs for you?

    i do hope others will join us in tracking progress this month.

    Hello fasters,

    Checking in on floors:

    (731 floors total) 84 – 36 = 48 FTG (floors to go)

    ⚡️

    Strengthening at the end with my sprints this time. No one else on the treadmills! Amazing how sometimes the workout area is overcrowded and same time on the next day: empty.

    ✔️

    Following up with the next virtual mountain soon.

    Have patience with the 4:3. Although it’s been 6 weeks, you seem to be doing the right fasting strategy.

    Your exercise strategy may need adjusting.

    “I go to the gym 3x week. Body shape and spinning ”

    Consider HIIT (High Intensive Interval Training) at the end of your workouts or more frequently. If the body shaping involves weights, then do slow repetitions and increase the weights for muscle growth.

    I recommend the Tabata method for results and time compression.

    http://greatist.com/fitness/complete-guide-interval-training-infographic

    Track your workout progress and let us know how you’re progressing.

    What is your target goal for October?

    Hi Rocky I would love to loose 4lb or more this month as last 2 weeks I’ve lost nothing..my weight goes up and down. I also do body shape 3 x week and once a week spinning. My gym days fall on non fast days..shall change them so my fasting and going to the gym. I also do long fast where I just have one meal that the evening. What shall I do guys ? Need your opinion.

    @tina321
    ” I would love to loose 4lb or more this month ”

    Good target to go for.

    ” also do body shape 3 x week and once a week spinning. My gym days fall on non fast days..shall change them so my fasting and going to the gym.”

    This makes sense. Here’s what MM recommends:

    “There is good evidence that people who exercise in the fasted state burn more fat. In one study men who exercised before breakfast burnt more fat than those who exercised afterwards. Exercise can also be a useful distraction if you begin feeling peckish. Don’t, however, attempt to do a lot of endurance training on a fasting day and if you feel uncomfortable, stop.”

    Stay with the rest of your fasting strategy.

    Check in weekly?

    Thanks Rocky will do..

    Hey guys.after 2 weeks i’m finally loosing weight according to my scales.. I’ve made few changes..first I’m changing my fast day to my gym day. Hopefully will kick start metabolism. Today I got nice complement from college at gym. She said your looking slimmer.. I thought yes finally some one noticed that I’m loosing weight. Well good luck will let you know how next week goes.

    @tina321
    ” I thought yes finally some one noticed that I’m loosing weight. Well good luck will let you know how next week goes.”

    Yes, great to get acknowledgement!

    We will also be checking in over the weekend.

    I’m on a plateau for my weight, however my trend still directs me on my path.

    I was on a weight plateau for a month but lost 7 inches.

    @annette52
    “I was on a weight plateau for a month but lost 7 inches.”

    Yes, I find that my clothes are fitting better. I use my clothes as measurement.

    Still, I do have a target to hit.

    Hey guys

    If I do the fast diet 3 days on the trot is that good or bad ? Last couple of weeks have been up and down for me. Sometimes I go over my calorie. 2 weeks ago I was diagnosed with infection in my right shoulder which will stop me from doing body shape and aerobics. My doctor recommend 3 months rest.. no use of my right arm. Which is a bummer. I feel so venerable now I think I might mess up my diet. Please help guys. I having lost any weight in since 2 weeks which make s it worse.

    Starting weight 75 kg 24 August 2013

    My aim is to loose 500he a week. Having lost any since 2 weeks.

    Hi, fellow fasters, I am quite pleased with my progress. Started August 12, 2013 at 250 lbs, now at 231 lbs. Doing 45 min walking at least 4 times a week and light weight lifting. My problem is my wife is also doing this. She lost quite a bit of weight( how much is a state secret, LOL) the first 5 weeks or so, now she has gained 3 lbs over the last 3 weeks and is not doing anything differently. She is very frustrated. Any suggestions?

    You continue steady progress and hope that you recover well soon.

    My workouts have been minimal this week and will report after this fasting weekend.

    It helps me to stay accountable on this thread.

    Anyone else doing floor climbing or tracking their workouts?

    ⚫️ Goal for this month: 180 lb

    Starting Weight: 188 lb

    Tracking Weight: 184.6 lb

    Feed, Fast, HIIT: 5:2, strengthening, stairs & sprints, less activity this week. More distractions, however, stopped lunchtime on feed days & gained more time.

    I also noticed that this trend chart estimates that based on my progress it would take 8 more months to hit my target weight.

    It helps me rethink being on a plateau.

    There’s a lot of interest in getting results quickly.

    Hi all,
    Just started.
    Weight 17 .9lb, enjoying so far……wish me luck:)

    thank you for the well wishes rocky, im feeling much better but still hanging onto a nasty cough,
    my plateau lasted 3 1/2 months, i dropped 3 dress sizes during that time so i now welcome them!

    welcome Optomist, good luck, having a place to share your journey will help keep you motivated, and its good to be able to look back on progress,

    weigh in day tomorrow for me, bring it on! x

    Hi hardjudge and welcome
    sorry i didnt reply before now,
    “now she has gained 3 lbs over the last 3 weeks and is not doing anything differently. She is very frustrated. Any suggestions?”

    maybe keep a record of her non fast days, keep within recommended daily cals, there is a calculator under the *how* section, x

    @ fast for life
    ” im feeling much better but still hanging onto a nasty cough,…weigh in day tomorrow for me, bring it on! ”

    Glad that you’re recovering and eager to continue.

    I’ve slowed my exercise regimen this week. I’ve had business concerns and life getting in the way.

    Essentially, I didn’t want to work out.

    The weather changing may be another excuse for me. Rekindling the motivation is where I need to start.

    Glad everyone is here for mutual support.

    Counting down motivates me to complete successfully.

    As of this moment, there are 6 days, 15 hours, and 35 minutes until the end of this October.

    Stay hungry, be foolish, risk often intelligently, and finish well.

    This has not changed since I started, although I went lower in weight briefly.

    Hi Rocky, how long has your weight stayed the same, how close are you to target?
    i would imagine you are converting fat to muscle, and the fat loss is being hidden by the muscle gain, just my thoughts looking at the amout of exercise your doing. x

    @ fast for life
    “how long has your weight stayed the same, how close are you to target?”

    Lowered my weight by 3 pounds, and now back up to my starting weight for the month.

    My clothes fit well, just doing more 6:1 and my cardio is not as frequent.

    I’m targeting for November to reach my target.
