For those that know me, or read my blog, you would know that I was fasting 2 times a week. Before my fasting, I weighed 290lbs. When I was weighed after fasting back in early May 2023, I now weigh 273lbs which is a 17lb difference. While I am proud of myself, I want to lose more weight. With that being said, I am deciding on fasting from 2 days a week to 3 days a week. Obviously, I will still eat 4 days a week, but my days of fasting will be Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. This is obviously a 50% increase in the number of days, but I am hoping to lose an average of 2.5lbs a week. I still do not have a scale, so I can not see my progress, but I will hope to continue one, and make it work out.
If I find that I can not fast 3 times a week, I will go back to twice a week. However, I am able to tell myself no, and can hold off on eating. If I notice any adverse effects, I will move back to twice a week. This sounds drastic, but don’t think of it as me not eating 3 times a week, but I am eating 4 times a week.
