Intermittent Fasting- Month Two Update

May 22, 2019
From the girl with no scale, here is my month two Intermittent Fasting update...and it really isn't that exciting-sadly.  I am using intermittent fasting for weight loss, but that's because I had surgery and couldn't work out.  A lot of folks are using intermittent fasting for bodybuilding, or they want to see immediate intermittent fasting results.  It just doesn't work that way.  If you continue to read beyond this point, you are agreeing to my updated privacy policy, found here, and this post contains commissioned links.

this is my first month of fasting

If you have read me before, you may know that six months ago I had a prophylactic mastectomy.  All is well and I feel human again, but for a long time, I wasn't able to workout.  The most that I could do was walk, and throw in ALLLLL of the Christmas cookies, and I felt awful.  My clothes didn't fit, and that just makes me not happy.

Anywhoo, my friend Carolina (Mama Instincts) had lost about 20 lbs doing intermittent fasting for weight loss, and I was inspired.  Meal planning on my own wasn't working.  It was creating so much stress to make separate meals for the whole family, that I gave it up quickly.  Intermittent fasting seemed to be my lazy way out.  By the way, I do the intermittent fasting 16/8 plan.


To read more about my one month update, that is here.

The good news is that with Intermittent Fasting for weight loss the gain stopped.  


The bad news is that I haven't noticed a significant change.  


And mind you, I am doing this pretty much 7 days a week.  There are very few days where I break my fast early.

Here are the changes that I have noticed:

Excuse the super instagram-y thing.  This was the only recent body pic I could find


1. If I eat later than our usual meal time, I am hungry earlier the next morning.  Those days make it really hard to break my fast on time.  Its brutal.

2. I eat less overall.  Our silly family motto is "we like to eat", so this one is huge for me.  Portion control when you want to eat all of the things is really the worst.  HA!  It makes it easier that I feel full, and really just don't want to eat more.

3.  I have more muscle tone. But you guys, my workouts are ramped up.  When I first started my 16/8 fasting, I was doing the elliptical five days a week (30 minutes), with no arms (boob surgery issues).  I am now still doing 5 days a week, but I have thrown in reformer pilates 3-4 days a week too. 

I am not a quitter.  I am going to keep doing this fasting thing to see what happens.  It might be because I needed to lose less weight, and that is the freaking notorious weight that seems impossible to get rid of.  It might be because I am old AF now, and that's fun.

So, I will attempt to keep you posted.  Maybe soon, it will be all sunshine and rainbows?  I can eat an entire pan of brownies, and still sleep at night from the sugar rush, and not gain an ounce.  It could happen, right?

Have you tried fasting?  I would love to share your results!
