nope, sorry 255 would be a tie for a new low. So Ruth you can see you are not the only one who re-loses slowly! I hit the 255 on August 24th. Then gained 9 over the course of the next week (the first week of being empty nesters, think emotions might have played a role?). So it has taken me 4 weeks (how is that for optimism, knowing I will hit 255 this week?) to lose it back. Today is a non-fasting day, tomorrow should be my 3rd fasting day this week, so hopefully by Sunday morning I will break through. My first big goal is to get below 252. That is what I weighed at my last doc visit before the birth of my kids (for both oddly enough). Maybe by Halloween I will be in the 40's. We shall see.
Yesterday's fast was very easy. EXCEPT when I was making DH's dinner. I made him sweet potato fritters, which he had with beans and some homemade salsa. So the part that was hard...I actually burned the first batch of the fritters, badly enough that I had to pitch them. But the insides were still good, it was very hard for me to throw away the fritters knowing that the insides were still good, weird. So I scraped it out of them and threw that back in the frying pan, so I wouldn't try to stuff it into my mouth on the way to the trash. I had one small bite of it to make sure it didn't have the burn taste, and that was it. The rest of my intake was all the coffees and teas with their HWC and coconut milk.
Currently, I am sticking to doing 3 "fasts" a week. I like doing them as essentially fat fasts, just drinking iced coffees and teas with the cream and coconut milk. Basically has been 75% fat (because so far, I have always had a few bites of some veggie). I also then am working to do just 1 meal on 3 of the non-fast days, but not really paying much attention to its calories, just eating a "healthy" meal. Tonight is going to be fish and a huge salad. If I feel so inclined, I may do one of the mug desserts, but I usually don't bother in the end. The 7th day of the week I just eat to hunger, and allow treats if needed. That usually ends up being 2 meals and maybe a bit of chocolate. I do allow wine or wine spritzers on my non-fasting days, though I don't always drink it.
Since my problems stem around portion control, it is easier if I just eat less often.
