I got a new scale in May - the Renpho. It links to your phone (everyone in the household with their own phone can make their own account) and it does some body analysis too so it tells you your % body fat, visceral fat, muscle, bone mass etc. I don't know how accurate all the other stuff is but it's fun. I fluctuate a lot but the trend line is good. Down 1.35 kg (just a hair shy of 3lb) over past 7 weeks.

Well I have not managed to keep up my alternate day fasting this week. Basically, when I do it,on alternate days I can only eat apples, as many of them as I want, which is usually between four and six of them. I’m also allowed as much coffee and tea as I want, with skimmed milk and I’m allowed one glass of wine as well. I’m going to start again next week as I do prefer to be slimmer. Just feel so much better and happier too. X

Very interesting approach, Scotbird. It does keep things simple. I can't count calories for the life of me but I can count apples. Except I'm allergic to them unless they're cooked. I can also count slices of apple pie. Lol.

Trend is also down for me. I have been increasing my fasting window by at least 2 hours most days (from 12 Hours overnight fast) and this seems to be helping. I may have to try a version of alternate day fasting before I don a bathing suit.

I haven’t been posting because I was just hovering around 128 and it seems that may be about as low as I can tolerate. Then I bought a multi pack of Naked smoothies and gained 3 lbs. Fruit sugar or not, I gain weight, so lesson learned. I also gained weight on a sugar free cheesecake I made for DH. Gave them up and I am back to 128.4 today. I keep chocolate almonds as my sweet snack and that works better than other “sins” for me.

I am an advocate of intermittent fasting as Heidi describes. I want to try to shrink my eating hours further but eat more food during those hours, ie I may only eat between 10:30 and 5. It seems like I can eat a lot more food doing this and be satisfied and not gain weight. I have used this method for restaurant eating and it works for me so I want to try it on a daily basis. I am so used to eating small meals but then I am always hungry before bed again.

Got a 10 class pass so will go through that before deciding what to try next in addition to my 4-5 yoga classes a week. TT

TrmTab that’s great well done! I always get a class pass to make myself go to Pilates. The one I’m using now is 33 classes of Pilates Reformer. It has to be used within 6 months. I’ve still got 10 classes left and have to use them by 14th August so I’m going twice this week. I hate the class itself but always feel a lotbetter afterwards. My weigh in this week is up 1. Keep trying everyone. It’s really difficult to eat less and move more but I think it’s worth it. I always feel much better when my weight is about 10lbs less than it is right now.
