Week 144…after 227 fasts..
We have still been ill this week but improving…managed to do our 2 fasts…being quite thoughtful as we know we will be upping the food over Christmas…
We are going away to visit our daughter on the 28th Dec, to Louisiana, a big surprise as she and the grandchildren don’t know we are coming..son in law is keeping it a secret hoping it will hold till we get there..
We have changed a bit around foodwise these last few weeks and I have been in charge of breakfasts, hubby has joined me in having fruit, fresh, tinned or frozen, a mixed bowl…it definitely has given him a kick start..unless it’s being ill too!!
I have lost 1 lb…loosing to date 26 lbs
Hubby lost 4 lbs….loosing to date 16 lbs
Our body is so very strange…I will never understand it….we will continue as we are so pleased of this way of life..
The conclusion on our third year…
This time last year, I am 1 lb up….hubby is 3 lb down…a positive result.
We both wish everyone a Happy Christmas and a Happy New Year…our first weigh in will be 25th January after holidays…

Wow, what an achievement Symba! Congratulations!Have you guys ever been tempted to fast more than 2 days a week? I’m on holidays at the moment , which can make easier and more difficult. Easier in that I can have as much water etc without having to worry about frequent bathroom visits when working. More difficult in that were tend to go out and socialise more. When I am working, I fast 5 days a week as I am so busy , I get distracted and don’t think about hunger, food etc. on the weekends, we have a very active social life, so I basically party all weekend (within reason , don’t eat fried chips etc). This has resulted in me losing a maximum of 1.7 kg in a week and a minimum of 200g. I have monthly weigh ins and blood pressure checks with my dr. My blood pressure has gone way down to a healthy level and I have gone down 2 dress sizes. My BMI is 24.6 and I would like it to go down to 22.5 ish. 8 kg to go !
Thank you … we do two or three fasts a week, as it’s a way of life for us and we feel that is enough.
It’s the feasting and fasting which is Michael Mosleys way of doing 5.2 but we all tweet it to suit ourselves..
You have done very well yourself good luck to your goal.
Thanks Symba so do you have much further to go to reach your goal ? It is certainly easier when your partner is travelling the same road ! X
I am at goal but would like another 7 lbs off of it happens, hubby too would like another 7 lbs off.. just going away on holiday for three weeks so by the time we are back it will be a lot more but that’s life… too many holidays get in the way…
Back on the 19th.. fasting and more focussed I think ..

Agreed but you also need to enjoy life by having holidays . You can always get back on the horse !

Week 145…after 230 fasts..
First week fasting of the year..with three fasts completed.
We have had two weeks Christmas and then a three week holiday in America visiting family, so five weeks off fasting. It really shows when the finger is off the button.
We were away with friends at Christmas holidays and then with the family so had to fall in with very different meals than we usually eat…catching up with my daughter over far too many wines which went down like a dream..counted the bottles over three weeks 16 bottles of red wine between us definitely an ouch!…good it’s only once a year visit…the beer was awful to drink so hubby was saved.
We are trying to fit three fasts in each week from now till the end of February …see how we go…off the alcohol too..
I have put on 6 lbs…loosing to date 20 lbs
Hubby put on 1 lb…loosing to date…15 lbs
Hubby needs a gold star at putting 1 lb on over a 5 week period…he has put me to shame.
I need a very good push to get the holiday weight lost…still holidays is a must for us, and visiting family are very special times…hope my holiday weight is gone by the end of February.

Week 146…after 233 fasts..
We are getting rid of the jet lag now and getting back in the swing of fasting…we managed 3 fasts this week and hoping to continue to the end of the month..
This week has been very cold and possibly had a bit more food than usual just couldnt face salads…I have made a batch of vegetable soup and I have portioned it up for the freezer, now looking towards making some mushroom soup and maybe tomato. Very good on the calories.
I have lost 1 lb…loosing to date 21 lbs
Hubby stayed the same….loosing to date 15 lbs
The doctor has told hubby he needs to do some excerise and loose more weight…so hopefully that will give us the push to be more focused..

Week 147..after 236 fasts…
We had a bit of a bad weekend, bottle of red wine, two lots of puddings with our main meals..we really must watch what we are eating at a weekend, we do slip a bit…we had a friend visiting in the week who had to cancel twice due to the weather, leaving us extra food, cakes and biscuits to eat…still we pushed on with three good fasts, very thoughtful week on the food on NFDs.
I have stayed the same….maintaining at 21 lbs off
Hubby stayed the same….maintaining at 15 lbs off
I feel we have had a good week, pulled back on the excesses of the weekend…I am happy we have maintained.
We have wedding anniversary and a special birthday for hubby who is 70 this week…. We have a lunch and evening meal out today…then going away for two days in a hotel for his birthday….all food again…..hoping to maintain again next week
The line will then be drawn for a couple of months, thoughtful on food we are eating….before my special birthday at the end of April.

149 weeks… after 242 fasts…
I didn’t log last week…as we were away for a weekend break…
We are doing 5 days, 2 x 500 and 3 x 800 if we can with a normal weekend….we are managing it ok up to now…we have been doing 5.2 over three years and I think we need a shake up and more thoughtful eating…see how we go…
All exciting for us we have bought a three year old Dalmatian called Charlie he definitely is getting my steps up to 14,000 a day…..hoping over time it will help with weight or at least toning…..Charlie will join us on 5.2 ( maybe not quite 5.2 but lower calories 😂) he has about 11 lbs to loose, maybe a two week weigh in for him…he will join the list next week.
I have maintained…loosing to date 21 lbs
Hubby has lost 2 lbs…loosing to date….17 lbs to date
Keeping on our shorter calorie week…

Great to still read your posts. Like you both we continue to fast regularly. We still aim for twice a week. Last year we fasted 90+ times this year aiming for 100. What is great about it is firstly it stabilisés weight gain. Plus it gives one a wonderful feeling of control over oneself. Well done and keep it up.
I’m finishing off my book then sending it to a friend to proofread. I’ll let you know what happens after that.
Lovely to hear from you…I am glad you are both pushing on with this lovely way of life…we have possibly let go a bit and not so focussed but maintaining well. ..a couple of holidays have got in the way a bit and of course Christmas. We are trying to really think what we are eating and cutting back on the naughties..
We have now got Charlie the dalmation and he is keeping us on our toes…more walking especially for me…we have had him a week and he definitely has changed our life in a good way.
Good safe flying to you both and pop by again and let me know about your book..

Week 155… after 252 fasts
We had a week at home then a week away visiting family..managing to fast while away but unfortunately a few meals out, biscuits and cakes while family was around us…I seem to have not logged into the thread for two weeks I don’t know how that happened..just being away I think.
Charlie dog has been ill with an upset tummy..so his weight has gone down, I will log it but next weigh in will show his proper weight..
I have gained 1 lb…..loosing to date 21 lbs
Hubby stayed the same…loosing to date 17 lbs
Charlie the dog 1 kg….loosing to date 6 lbs
Really must put some effort in to loose some weight, we have a few weeks before we go away again.
I think Charlie is looking very good maybe another pound to loose..Vet needs more off but I don’t want him too scraggy looking…

Pushing on this week not doing much..I went out for lunch mid week…

Hubby has started doing one dog walk with me and I think it’s helping loosing the weight…he has a high heart rate and he soon starts burning as mine is so slow, I never get in the burning mode..I am very pleased with him…it’s hard for him walking as he has many health problems ..

Week 158…after 258 fasts..
I have had a quick week away to Houston to visit my daughter as a birthday surprise for me. My hubby was left at home looking after Charlie the dog. So a week without fasting for both of us. We have managed to get straight back on board this last week.
I have put 1 lb on…loosing to date 21lbs
Hubby has put 2 lbs on…loosing to date 18 lbs
I am quite pleased with the results this week, as I expected more weight gain…hubby let off the leash doing his own thing not too bad too..
We are going away for a holiday in the caravan for three weeks, the next weigh in day will be the first Friday in June..we will continue to fast as usual but we are on holiday so maintaining would be nice.
