One Month of Intermittent Fasting…

2019-02-16 18.35.33

I started Intermittent fasting the evening of January 13th and it’s already been a month. I wanted to share how my first month of fasting went and what I have lost and learned.

My starting weight was 281.5 and today I am 278, which means I have lost 3.5 pounds in the last month. I also got off my birth control pill the same day I started fasting so I don’t know if maybe since my body is going through changes if its affecting the fasting too but we shall see. I am not planning on stopping fasting in a matter of fact I want to do this for as Long as I can. To be honest I’m also not so consistent with my hours. Theres days where I fast for 14 hours and days where I fast 16 and heck there’s days where I only last 12, 13 or 15 hours…it all depends. So maybe that’s why I’m also not losing as much weight as people tend to say they’re losing…who know.

(I am using the app called LIFE to monitor my hours of fasting)

One thing I have noticed is how less bloated I am and “lighter” I feel though which is amazing. I do get super bloated when I eat something heavy now though. The one thing I don’t like about fasting if how constipated I get from it…its annoying! But other than that it’s been amazing! I just need to be more consistent with my hours and maybe try to eat less during my eating window.

I’ll update again soon.

  1. I am currently doing intermittent fasting as well. I was expecting all of these pounds to miraculously she’d but haven’t seen that either. I am going back to regular eating at the end of February. Please keep us posted on your progress.

    1. I haven’t lost as much as people say you’ll lose but then again I’m not doing 16 hours every day nor am I eating better! But I am losing at least a pound or sometimes more a week and I feel so much better, not as bloated which is great! Are you still doing it or did you give it up? Sorry for late reply..

    1. I did give up fasting for a few weeks due to being sick and a death in the family (Im an emotional eater) but then got back on track a week ago. I try not to skip fasting now because then I end up losing my motivation so the only thing I do that I guess is considered cheating is ending my fast early. Like today for example I ended up my fast at 13 Hours instead of fasting for 14 or more.
