I’ve put on weight every month for the last 36 months or so. Every month I’ve weighed the most I’ve ever weighed. I’m getting tired of it. This last Monday I started a “diet”. It’s loosely called intermittent fasting, though that term means different things for different people. For me it means I only eat during a 4 hour period in a day. That’s a 20 hour fast. I chose to eat only between 4pm and 8pm. Practically speaking I generally don’t eat until 5 or 5:30 when my family eats. I also find myself cheating a little in the evening, and snacking between 8 and 9. But if I start late, I don’t mind ending late.
I haven’t had real hunger during the day yet, it’s been really really comfortable.
I whipped up a WordPress plugin to help me track how I’m doing. This chart will be updated every day:
Total Weight Lost 12 lbs. in 42 days.
So far I’m losing a pound a day. I have no idea how long this will go on so easily, we’ll see. At this rate I should be down 25lbs by WCUS. We’ll see if anyone notices.
