    Day 18 second post

    Well I made it through my first FD…… now all I can think about is what I am going to eat tomorrow…….

    @stitchincarol….Congrats on getting everything done and fix some opps…… when I have a lot to do on my computer, I always wait for everyone to be in a deep slumber. When I’ve got stare at a computer screen the peacefulness of the night movitates me. Plus an added bonus, the next day is always free to enjoy!

    @merryapple…. I do enjoy a slice of fresh warm bread. When I make mine I always had to make a loaf for now and one for later……. Now, I make three because my oldest has a back yard farm and if I want eggs from his chicken I have to exchange it for a loaf….. Good exchange I think.

    I hope you all have a fantastic day, evening or night!

    Day 19 NZ NFD 73kg😬

    What did I expect!! I made a round loaf of sourdough and ate exactly one quarter when it came out of the oven 😄 I’m ‘studying’ or at least writing and researching my lecture for tonight ie sitting for hours in front of my laptop… it’s a no brainer that food gets the better of me in this situation… And I’m going out for dinner with the gang afterwards!!
    I’ll be back tomorrow definitely on a FD!!!
    Fabulous news @snowflake51

  • Hello Southern Hemispherites!!

    Morning all

    Weigh in this week was down 1.1 kilos from last week. I’ve been sticking to between 800-1500 calories all week, my stomach isn’t as uncomfortable as it was, but I still feel bloated after eating in the evening. I might try eating half portion in the evening and go to see a doctor if it keeps up after that.

    Happy belated birthday Cinque, I hope you had a good one.

    Have a great day everyone

  • Fat Busting Brits!!

    Evening!
    Well done Typhoo/ Steve on your 1st FD in a while!
    Nana- enjoy your lunch out tomorrow…
    And hope you’ve had a good lunch today Hemmy! And have a lovely few days with Kristy…
    Jean- well done with your boules match, & your FD!
    Dave- hope your weigh in tomorrow is good, are you going to weigh at home, did you say you’ve got to bowl & miss the class?
    Slider- did you do a FD yesterday?
    Have done a liquid FD again today, not felt very energetic though …gave Xena a long walk, did our shopping, a bit of ironing, watered the garden & that’s it!
    Couldn’t decide where we fancied going for afternoon tea, so we’re going to do our own, & sit in the garden with the nice china! Have got to do baking for the firemen tomorrow so will keep some for our tea, & have bought scones…
    Will hopefully keep the fast going until then!

  • Fat Busting Brits!!

    Evening everyone, it’s been a lovely sunny warm day here. We started off doing some much needed weeding in our garden and then sat in the garden and enjoyed a nice BBQ afterwards.
    Off to St Ives for our usual Wednesday lunch with friends but will be one down as they are having a hip replacement operation tomorrow. Looks promising weather-wise for tomorrow so Geraldine will be used. Typhoo Geraldine is the name I’ve given to my recently purchased tricycle to replace my bicycle as my balance is not as good as it was and I wanted to still be able to cycle up to the guided busway near here to catch the bus into St Ives.
    All ready for Katies visit Jean and well done with the boules.
    Enjoy the evening everyone.

    Steve your lucky my metabolic age is 78😱 and I’m 70. Had to reset my scales they stopped logging the results on my phone, not tried them since. I’ll give them a go tomorrow. I’m waiting to get a smart ring but can’t decide which one to get, I’ll see what the Samsung ring looks like and if Oura bring out a new one.

    Day 18 Indianapolis

    @snowflake56 What WONDERFUL news, well deserving of a celebratory meal.

    I brought along my laptop because that huge project had some related editing I was asked to do, and not only did I finish it yesterday evening after the girls were in bed, but I found some fairly large mistakes and corrected them, always a satisfying feeling. Now I get to be grandma without anything hanging over my head.

    Okay, that was a thirty minute delay to burp Baby Mae (now 3 months).

    Clearly, grandma duties are calling!

    Day 18…..Florida……FD

    Sorry about not posting yesterday. It was my scheduled day in the office for the week and there is always so much to do. I’m always worn out by the time I get home.
    I did t do to bad yesterday, at the office we eat lunch together, which me I didn’t break my fast until 12:30. The Coworkers ordered out and I stuck with I brought from home. First time in along time!
    Today, is my first official FD. I think it will go well just need to remember to drink my water. That’s a big one for me…..
    A friend called me last night as she told be she was doing the Dubrow diet anyone ever heard of it? She was telling me about it, it’s pretty much like any IF program but with super restrictive food adherents. I wished her luck but decided to decline her offer to join her. Just sounds too restrictive for me.

    I must be off the day waits for no one, I’ll post later today!

    Hello, fellow fasters. It is now more than 1/2 way through the month and I need to buckle down to get on the wagon and continue going downhill…
    Great news for you, @snowflake56! Wishes for continued good health for your husband!
    @brightonbelle, last night, my sleep was disturbed by an odd pain in my right upper arm. Can’t relate it to any particular physical activity. Had to take some ibuprofen and eventually it went away…I hope your “overstretched” self is feeling better today! Good luck at the dentist; hoping you have good anesthesia! That is always my wish when I need “work”.
    @jaifaim, autocorrect function is amazingly annoying!
    @flourbaby, I love your quote.
    Today, a man who is establishing a fitness business/gym is coming to look at our office building. I have no particular hope or expectation that he will buy it. Recently I have had to hire new front desk people and new medical assistants, so just my luck he may say he wants it, and then they would be out of a job. That would be hard on them….No sense muddling over things I cannot control! I CAN control my eating, though!

  • Fat Busting Brits!!

    My first fast(try saying that quickly)is now complete so this morning I decided to jump on the scales just to see how much weight I need to lose.

    I’m 205lbs which is five pounds less than the last recorded weigh in which was January but I have a metabolic age of 59 which I’m not happy about as I won’t be 58 until the end of this year, I almost threw my thorntons chocolates in the bin lol.

    I have an even 30lbs I would like to lose to be around the 175lbs or 12 and a half stone.

    Thanks everyone for the very warm welcome back messages it’s nice to hear I was missed.

    I did indeed stretch @jaifaim and must have overdone it by about 9pm last night I had to go to bed absolutely shattered and aching and a terrible headache so plan b ease myself in a bit more gently 5- 2 this week and see how it goes

    Absolutely delighted about your news @snowflake56 what a relief

    Off to the dentist now – 1hr 20 min appointment for part 2 of my root canal /crown work 🤞

    Day 18, London, UK, NFD

    Congratulations @snowflake56 and for your DH, the best outcome possible!!! I’m sure it’s such a relief, as much as you try not to worry, you just can’t help it!! I’m sure I lack the coordination to join that line-up!!!

    Thanks @jaifaim, I’m someone who needs defined roles, clear information, things to be as they should!! So when all hell breaks loose – amended info at work, no idea of what’s happening with the house and such weird weather, I think it’s all too much for me to deal with!!! I wish I was more of a free spirit, but just the thought of a free-spirited, fly by the seat of your pants, Bohemian lifestyle gives me heart palpitations!!!🤣🤣🤣 Lists, plans, schedules, forecasts……………. Aah, that’s so much better!!!

    I’m knuckling down for the 2nd half of Jolly June as there are no more birthday’s, no more unavoidable functions, no more work events ………………………… and there are blue skies outside my window!!!!🥳🥳🥳🥳

    Stay strong people!!! We’ve got this!!

    Day 18 – Ireland – CD – 🚫 ✅ 🚶🏽‍♀️ 🌾.
    153.9

    Hi all, things are quiet again here but hopefully everyone is “good” busy.. I did not get my hour walk in yesterday… so many reasons but they don’t matter. Today is a new day and I’ll manage that or an evening cycle today. I’m stuck with the plank at 2 minutes and finding it tough but figure I’m getting stronger somewhere… even if it is the “mind” with the adoption of the habit most days…

    @snowflake56 I’d have been very surprised if you’d managed a FD yesterday! What a huge day for you both and so happy you celebrated. I’m glad my words helped… I use them on myself quite frequently too. But sometimes they don’t work.. you know the way… here’s to a wonderful cancer free future for your DH 💕
    I really like the sound of East-Frisia (sp?)! There’s no doubt our fast paced lives don’t help when it comes to health and welfare and I do love the buzz of the city but I know it’s not ideal.

    @flourbaby so glad the mood lifted… I’m feeling that up/down mood these past few weeks with sinus etc so just keeping one foot in front of the other.. hopefully this week things ease a little for you.
    Bravissimo @metatauta 👏. Great start to the week for you!!!
    And @funshipfreddie 🏹🏹 I felt I was a weekend warrior too even though I didn’t fast… but the choices were much better than any weekend to date I’d say and interspersed with exercise and catch ups.

    Great to have you back @brightonbelle – did you stretch? Your holiday sounded just perfect! Hopefully the vendors will linger for a good while! ☀️

    Hi everyone else! Today I think of @maui and wonder how things are in Hawaii for our lovely friend.
    Ok… busy day, tests for consultants – routine. Work, a walk/cycle, and eating well.

    Day 18, Germany, FD

    Yesterday’s FD didn’t happen, we were in celebratory mood and we had left over mushrooms so we made chicken ragoût.

    I have a busy day today. After ballroom class I have the “hard” sports hour, this afternoon computer lessons and after that we’re off to a kind of bowling and dinner which I’ll leave out today.

    @jaifaim Yes, we’re so relieved and hope the cancer won’t come back again. Your comment did help me to come down a bit, I’m such a worrier. The first team on the video is the best team we have at the sportsclub, our team is not very good but because nobody expects we’re good, it takes the pressure off and we can just have fun together. We get along very well, laugh a lot and we’re mostly with the same group when we’re dancing somewhere. East-Frisians are quite relaxed and friendly people, everything is going at a slow pace overhere.

    Couldn’t believe the news last weekend! My heart and blessings go out to his family.

    Hello all!
    Welcome back Typhoon! We have missed you…
    Had a lovely evening with the boys, then a nice lazy day yesterday, have been really hungry but kept it under control! Swapped FDs about, finally a sunny day today, took my car in for a minor job, then went to the coast to make the most of it! Had a cream tea out & then a bacon & avocado baguette for dinner with salad, hopefully not too bad but I don’t think I’ll lose this week!

  • Which book to purchase?

    Hello! New to this and trying to learn as much as I can! Recently over-indulged in emotional eating with all the upheaval in my life and now have at least 50 pounds to shed. Tried many diets in the past. They work…. temporarily. I’d like to give this a fair chance and hope for better success.
    So sorry to hear of the untimely passing of Dr. Mosley just when I was introduced to his revolutionary idea.
    I was looking on Amazon to purchase the book but I don’t know which is the correct one. Is it the Fast Diet (revised) or the fast 800 diet? A little confused about this, any help would be appreciated!
    Thanks!

  • Fat Busting Brits!!

    Evening everyone, we enjoyed our week away and managed to walk 28 miles in all.
    Welcome back Typhoo and hope that today hasn’t been too difficult for you. I had a fd today and it was hard, even though I have been busy.
    Jean nice to have Katie visit you.
    Hemmy it’s been a lovely day here also.
    Dave good result with the bowls and sounds like you’re on a nice low day also.

    Hurray, the surgeon called, no cancer found, no chemotherapy anymore!!! Thank you all so much for your support esp. @jaifaim who was right, no news is good news!

    @funshipfreddie and @jaifaim It’s at an East-Frisian sportsevent. I joined the line-dance group last year so I didn’t dance there. The most people I danced for with the group were 250. On the first evening we did very well, on the second one we were too convinced of ourselves and half of the group turned in the wrong direction. But we had a lot of fun. On the video is only a very small sequence of the group dancing at 0:28, the lady in front is 90 y.0. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t-djdqsmkXQ

  • Fat Busting Brits!!

    Played Bowls in the sun, makes sick a change. It rained at first but was nice when I played, it was a real nail biter.I ended up having to knock his 2 bowls out and gain one myself, all the rest of the two teams were watching and shouting. I did it so won 21:20. Not had anything to eat apart from a skinny whip biccy 80 calories. Might have beans on toast for tea. May even add scrambled eggs with it.

  • Fat Busting Brits!!

    Good Afternoon FB Brits.. A lovely day again. Xxxx

    We did a good walk then decided to do all the mowing before having lunch .. so feeling tired now.

    Having a sit and cheese and tomato on toast .. so as its late I wont be wanting much later.

    I need to glam up a bit and sort clothes for lunch out tomorrow lol ..

    Kristy here next week Thurs -Sun so that will be nice. I must have a good clean this week as i put myself on holiday when she is here lol.

    Being a typical woman re footie .. I dont care how we won .. but we won lolol

    Dave .. Hope your weather improves soon .. the rain can get very depressing.

    Typoo .. You are very brave going straight into a non food day. I have never been able to do a liquid fast it makes me feel “Light”.

    Sym… Thats s very good price for the windows .. well done… Ohh I lovely cherry scones.. in the restaurant at M&S they are lovely. Big too lolol

    Enjoy the rest of your day everyone..

    A smile makes all the difference . Xxxx

  • Fat Busting Brits!!

    Morning All…
    Usual walk but cows have moved, so back tracked a bit.. dry but started to drizzle when we got back..

    Window man has measured the two windows, about £100 he is quite good value..a week to make so he will come back early July after Katie has gone.

    I decided to get some plants for Steve’s trough at the garden centre..Charlie is with me… we have popped into the cafe and in the dog area, I can’t see what’s on offer… I decided on a cherry scone, damage limitation… mine are 50 cals… this must be 1000 it’s enormous.. so no fast day… still Charlie has helped!!

    Hemmy…
    I don’t like sport.. so reading… TV is awful…

    Steve..
    Yes a good win or is it a scrape through😂
    I don’t like it but did look to see how they are doing…

    Dave..
    You are all making me feel guilty eating… still it’s a non weigh in week while Katie’s here.. maybe not so focused as I know that I will be eating and drinking…

  • The Maintenance Chatbox… come and share your success with us!

    Just a final quickie. Back on May 24th 2024 I and my Other Half spent a delightful meeting with Purple and Mr P in Cambridge and their kind congratulations.
    All four together we celebrated my long, slow journey from 1st February 2013 to a pleasing arrival to 52.3 kilos (8.2 stone). This was helped by a rough ride following a comfortable appendectomy op in July 2023 with complete loss of appetite and living on healthily filled sandwiches and/or carefully-mixed soup. Still not perfect but on the mend.
    Mustn’t grumble. Especially when it began with 13.35 stone (2 stone directly due to 2 years of a quack’s continuation of corticosteroids), i.e. 85.77 kilos, with a doubly lethal BMI 35.2.

  • Fat Busting Brits!!

    I’m glad you’re back typhoo, yes not a great game England but a win. Horrible weather at the moment sick of the rain and cold. Chloe asleep as usual,I think when I take her out she’s sleep walking💤. Not sure what to have to eat today, only had a cuppa so far today and bowling soon so no food until 5pm at the earliest.

  • Fat Busting Brits!!

    Good morning,

    It’s another cloudy morning here and looking like it might rain at any time.

    Fasting today for the first time in quite a while and will be doing a non food day as usual so probably will be just the one fast a week but will see how things go.

    Great to see England get their first win of the tournament not the best performance maybe but three points on the board so onwards and upwards.

    Good luck to all those fasting today and remember it’s only for one day and tomorrow we can eat normally.

  • Dr. Michael Mosley

    I was shocked to hear the news like so many other people who have been so positively influenced by his ground breaking scientific work.
    He was so inspirational, always discovering new things, new ways of presenting them and always easy to follow.
    I thought I could never lose weight, yet through his guidance I am back at my healthy target weight and staying there. For that I owe him much gratitude.
    My sincere condolences to his wife and family and all his friends, his legacy will live on. RIP Michael.

    @jaifaim – funny video! 🤣 Too late, I read about your delicious apple cake. But it’s my turn today. I’ll spare a thought for the Monday fasters as I tuck into my poached eggs, avo & toast later 😋

    Day 17, London UK, NFD,

    This weekend has been non-stop!!! I didn’t get anywhere near completing my project last week as numerous elements were revised on Friday morning, I HATE doing things twice!!

    Anyway, the weather was better over the weekend so my bad mood has lifted and I’m enjoying the blue sky this morning. It makes all the difference!!

    @merryapple, the black satin & turquoise tasselled cowboy gear sounds lovely, any leather chaps to go with it?😲 Also, are your kiwi’s different (fresher?) than ours?? I honestly can’t imagine eating the furry, prickly skin!! I imagine I would be picking bits out of my teeth all day!!! 😁 A ha, I see you’ve mentioned smooth skin, I’m pretty sure ours are still prickly!!🤔 Perhaps it’s just smooth kiwis for actual Kiwis!!🤣🤣

    Welcome back @bert1802, I remember you well as someone who grabbed the 5:2 bull by the horns!!! Sorry you’ve been suffering for a couple of years, life is so full of ups & downs isn’t it? It’s definitely time to put yourself first!!🙏🏼💪🏼🙏🏼

    Oh @missybear, it’s such a difficult decision to make!! There were a few issues with ‘my’ house, but not so bad that I needed to pull out or re-negotiate (although I could have!) after waiting for 3 years to find it, I just want it done & dusted…………….. NOW!!!

    I’m trying my best to swerve all food chatter!! Apples, kedgeree, eggs Benedict, cake!!!🤤🤤🤤

    Good luck to today’s fasters, you’ve got this!!!

    incredibly, the second half of Jolly June begins. It was a sad start to June and the news regarding Michael Mosley affected us all but I suppose our aim is to be jolly well happy at the end of the month so let’s keep that focus. I see that MMS last interview recorded is on the BBC Sounds app. Planked first thing and an hour walk later. Are you with me?

    Welcome home @brightonbelle! So glad you had a wonderful time! Lots to catch up on but we are all keeping the faith and the mojo seems to be sticking around for most of us.
    I had a lovely day yesterday – on the bike in the morning and working in the garden in the afternoon. We tried a new route yeaterday which was quite hilly and coastal and the weather was so much better than forecast. Sun all day ☀️ with a fresh breeze. 125 kms in all and a lovely apple cake and latte at the first coffee stop and a sausage sandwich at the second. Healthy dinner last night and the less than stellar food choice was some sweet and salty popcorn while watching a film. Cycling days start off with breakfast – they have to.. a good bowl of porridge, banana and peanut butter. You hope the calories expended will offset the calories ingested but … I’m not so sure it works that way 😂😂

    @bert1802 I agree your DH sounds adorable (sherbert – love it) and he is a wise man! Only you can know when you get to the best place for you in body and mind. Both equally important 💕

    @funshipfreddie don’t read about my delicious apple cake above 😂😂 it wasn’t huge but was GF and so delicious 😋. Enjoy your day today although every day is a day off for you! Lucky thing! 🦆

    I laughed when I read the article 😂 I have a complicated Irish name and we have a few Siobhan’s in our extended family and some other complex names.. including mine which is not as common and a conundrum for many particularly in France when I lived there…
    For a good laugh and to hear some others Lee Mack’s (UK comedian) short video. 😂😂
    https://youtu.be/PA5scaGG2iY?si=mY0Qa76ga8w1oDRX

    @merryapple I’m laughing, my brunch on Saturday was just the eggs dish and two lattes.. the list was all that I ate on Saturday… I thought it was good for a weekend NFD 😂 I hope you enjoyed your walk up Mt Eden and well done on giving the cake away… I would have had to do the same. 😇

    Yesterday was more carby as was on the bike. The CH4 drama is called “It’s a Sin” if you are looking for it. I thought it was fantastic but I think it would be interesting to hear your thoughts on it if you ever do get to see it as you lived through that period in London.

    Have a really lovely Monday everyone! And:

    No news from the hospital yet. I decided, as @jaifaim said, no news is good news.

    @bert1802 Welcome back, what a rough time you had.

    @merryapple Rotator cuff injuries can take forever to heal. Did you get your whole function back again? My DH fractured his left humerus head 9 weeks ago (he doesn’t leave anything out the last year) and still has to have therapy 3 times a week for 2,5 hours. He can’t bend his shoulder/arm backwards very well but the improvement he makes are impressive.

    @missybear It’s hard to step back from buying a house when you think it’s the one for you.

    @funshipfreddie We’re all line-dancing for the fun of it, our ambitions are quite low. In February we have to perform in front of 2000 people, by that time we all think it will go smoothly and if it doesn’t, who cares.

    Day 17 NZ FD 72.6kg 🏃‍♀️

    It rained and it poured then cleared up in time for a morning walk up Mt Eden!
    @bert1802 That’s so sweet, Sherbert!! Your husband sounds lovely!!!
    @brightonbelle Glad to hear you had a fabulous holiday!!
    @funshipfreddie To add to your apple list, I make Kedgeree with the usual base (cooked rice, sultanas, curry powders etc) with smoked fish, semi cooked boiled egg, almonds, celery, yoghurt and… a grated GrannySmith apple!! YUM!
    @jaifaim That brunch is outrageous!!!😃🤪Go you!!! I’m looking forward to maintenance on this basis!!! The cake was given to me but I passed on to another friend on our walk. I’ll get an edible slice tomorrow!!
    I’m going to see if I can watch Sin on Netflix later. I next worked at St Thomas’ ITU, London but we really didn’t see AIDS patients there. The UK was a little behind the USA because of a time lag and they were mostly treated at St Mary’s, Paddington.
    I hope the Week Day Warriors will be back soon… @leoniraats do keep in touch!! It doesn’t matter if your weight is up or down or static but staying with us does!!

    Steely RESOLVE especially for the Pocket Listers!

    Day 16……Florida…..CD

    Quiet Sunday around these parts….. Thankful for it as I have a long week ahead of me.
    Started my fast at 6:30pm and ended at 10:30a. I was starving, was so good to eat but found myself hungry about an hour later. No headache today so that’s a win!
    Just finished up dinner and started my fast like 4 min ago at 6:30p. So, figured this was a good time, to touch base I with you all. I’m staying on CD’s until Tuesday, figured I’d give my body a little time to adjust before I head into only 500 calories. I ended today, at about 1100 calories.

    @flourbaby and @missybear, my prayers are with you. It’s crazy how everything can be going smoothly then something so small can create some pretty big waves.

    @metatuta, people said the same thing to me when I lost so much weight but those were the same people that commented when I was gaining weight, my face looked bloated and stretched out. Hubby always said, I need to be at a place where I feel most comfortable regardless of how it made others feel. I’m passing that tidbit onto you!

    @merryapple… no apologies necessary…It something that happens when you have a username like Bert. When my hubby and I were dating he called me sherbert, then shortly after we were married he called be Bert. So, that’s how Bert came to be…..

    Okay, well I am off got to start my nightly routine for work tomorrow.

  • Hello Southern Hemispherites!!

    Happy Fathers day everyone.. Xxxx

    Lovely to have the sun shining and no rain today… A long walk with MaryAnn and her spaniel.

    Lazy day.. lawns too wet to mow.. hopefully tomorrow.. Out Tues’s and Friday this week to lunch and shopping.

    I had a bacon sandwich for lunch my favourite at the moment lol These days I seem to have fads with food then get bored with it.. but fortunately not a big appetite at the moment.

    My friends are back from their Scottish holiday…. it rained nearly every day..so fishing was limited. I have 2 lovely pots of honey and some shortbread for my watering.

    Welcome back Typhoo X .. Its not easy trying to keep on track at times..easier in summer though when we get some that is lol.

    Slider…how are you this weekend..

    Dave… Oh beef stew .. bet that smells good.

    Nana .. Is it back to fasting this week.

  • Fat Busting Brits!!

    Afternoon all,

    Yes I’m back again as my weight is yo yoing and I’m not looking to set foot on the scales as I don’t really want to know what they say until I get some fasting in.

    Definitely not fasting today as it’s Fathers day and a few goodies are waiting to be eaten but will probably have the first fast tomorrow.

    Not sure I’ll be voting next month as it’s really difficult to tell the main parties apart and not sure I would trust any of them to run a bath let alone the country.

    It’s a very wet and grey day here in Scotland can someone please put in an order for some sunshine for the next few months.

    Enjoy the weekend everyone.

  • Fat Busting Brits!!

    Jean you have to enjoy life, you can always lose weight another day. I like to hear where the cows are🤣. It’s a nice sunny day today for a change. Beef stew for tea, having a change. Will do it in the ninja using the pressure cooker setting. Will just stick it on for an hour, probably fine in half that but I like to make sure. It’s nice to take Chloe out and not get soaked.

  • The Maintenance Chatbox… come and share your success with us!

    This time I want to thank Carolann, closely followed by Pollypenny in early September 2022, for describing how her studies revealed how fat cells are laid within a child’s first 2 years, just waiting to be filled up. 100% correct. A professional photo shows a 2-or-3-year old toddler with a pretty, big-eyed face and a thick head of dark wavy hair, spoiled completely by obscenely fat arms and legs.

    Genetically, there were variations on both sides, some more or less average in weight and build. My mum was plump from childhood, father put on considerable weight when he gave up athletics. Somehow, I and later my brother were on the fatso line.

    Finally, when it comes to diabetes I’ve been very lucky when it comes to Type 2 or indeed any form of diabetes. Both parents and my brother suffered thereof. I still had to put up with being told off in public for not eating enough bread. If I had, I’d have been fatter still.

    Sorry to see both @flourbaby and @missybear still in house move discombobulation Hope things get resolved

    I’ll continue catching up and hope to be fully present tomorrow 💪

  • Fat Busting Brits!!

    Morning All..
    A good across the fields and riverbank walk, cows in one place so avoided them…they have been near the gate for two days now, they will be soon on the move again. It’s easy that we can spot them.

    Bed changed all washing dry and ironed, airing. Blankets out blowing and sofa blankets in the washer. No rain but expected.. more done than I thought.
    I think I will cut the grass…🤞🏻

    Dave.,
    This weather is so bad.. what a summer!
    The winter was so wet too.. it must stop and calm down at some time..

    I will be fasting Monday it’s well needed… but it will then be iffy as Katie is here, wine flowing and food…
    Back to normal 1st July…
    That’s life!!

    It may seem a wee bit odd that I’ve taken over a week to join you, Pollypenny, Purple and Barata, in sadly remembering Michael as a man of powerful intellect, kindness, bravery, all added by a delightful sense of humour.
    The reason for my delay was first to watch again his 2012 BBC Horizon documentary, Eat, Fast and Live Longer, which I did on Friday. I wanted to check that this was partly featured on Michael’s trip to Chicago. There, he took part in the ongoing study led by Dr Crista A Varady of the University of Illinois at Chicago, focusing on the promising possibilities of following this new approach of the theory of Eat, Fast and Live Longer.
    The programme was broadcast in early August. My ears were well pinned back and eyes wide open since we were due to travel to the same great city in mid-September 2012, first to explore Chicago before hiring a car to head southwards to Amish country and on to the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia (with a mummy and baby bear carefully crossing the road ahead of us) and eventually turning to New York. I joined the Fast Diet on 1st February 2013.

    Day 16 – South Africa 🇿🇦 – FD

    Kicking off Jolly June Part 2 with a fast day 🎯 Father’s Day here too today; not even a card from my ungrateful moggie 😿 And also ‘Youth Day’, commemorating the Soweto uprising of 1976. As it’s a Sunday, tomorrow will be the public holiday. Not much for the youth to celebrate though; unemployment for under 35’s in SA is around 45%!

    @merryapple – I’m now trying NOT to think about apple upside-down cake on my FD. I love anything with apple, whether it’s pie, crumble, turnover, stewed…😋 and now @jaifaim has me thinking about Eggs Benedict.. & lots of other things 🤯

    Michael Mosley’s last interview:
    https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-13531883/Dr-Michael-Mosley-praised-wife-BBC-interview.html

    @jaifaim – I thought this might amuse you…

    Happy S🌞nday!
