Re: Allison's 2019 Check-in

The week was decently successful but I shouldn't have weighed myself this morning 🤢... Not good. I also did 30 minutes of cardio 5 days this week. On a week of having dropped my Prozac from 40 mg to 20 and feeling pretty crabby!

Yes lpearlmom, me too....I am loving this! (and omg I was reading your blog and bought every book you mentioned). You are an inspiration! I am no longer at odds of what to do in the afternoon, which is where my red dots most always happen. I get hungry around 4 but find I'm actually enjoying feeling...

ðŸðŸðŸðŸ 4 days in a row and looking good for 5! Fasted for 19.5 hrs from 1130am yesterday until breakfast this morning. But eating enough in the other hours that I don't get all that hungry. Basically eat a decent size breakfast, have nuts as a mini-meal, have lunch. It strangely works well for me ...

Day 3 also a smashing success with an 18hr fast from 2pm to 8am this morning. I feel a groove coming on. Scale moving down a tiny bit all week. I just finally have an in control feeling.

Another stellar and modest day!

B- Protein bar
L- special k quiche w/cheese on top, cup ðŸ‰
D- handful of mixed nuts

Reading a book about intermittent fasting and have been trying out the 8 hr window of eating and 16 hrs of fasting. Pretty easy because it follows my natural habit of early dinner.

I ate in the middle of the night again which is why I think I failed today. I am slowly getting more sleep; still insomnia but I'm making it ...
