Re: Della's Monthly Check In

Down 5 more pounds for my August weigh in. It’s funny, I always feel like I’m going to gain weight every time I weigh in. Glad this is not the case.

Re: Della's Monthly Check In

Thanks! To be honest, I’m not even being a super healthy eater or anything. I usually have a breakfast sandwich and a coffee in the morning. Skip lunch but drink tons of water/crystal light, drink wine after work with a light dinner (chicken breast and veggies mostly). If I’m starving in the middle ...

Re: Della's Monthly Check In

June weigh in and I’m only down 2 lbs but I’m still pretty stoked about being down a total of 30 for 2019! I slacked a little this month but ready to get back on track for June. I’d really like to lose an additional 20 this year. Still doing vanilla No S and fasting one meal a couple days a week.

Re: Della's Monthly Check In

May check in and I’m down 4 more pounds for a total of 28 lbs lost since January. 2 lbs away from my annual goal of 30 lbs! Feels SO good to finally be under 200. It’ll be nice to switch my focus to a healthy BMI!

Skipping Dinner

I realize that a lot of people may be super against this, but has anyone on here every done intermittent fasting? I was considering skipping dinner once a week to see if it makes a big difference on my monthly weigh ins. Thoughts?

It's been a few weeks since my last update. I've been on habit for the most part and finally had the courage to weigh myself before going to the gym today (224) and now that I have that out of the way, I will start doing that once a month. Hopefully that is the biggest number I will ever see.
