Fasting in Texas

I am writing this post today from my best friend's house in Austin Texas. They say everything's BIGGER in Texas! Well that is certianly true from what I have seen during my visit so far. We have had some wonderful food since I have been here but I have stayed true to my lifestyle and kept up the fasting routine.

Yesterday I had yummy lasagna that my friend made which was very good. Then we went shopping and I bought some new clothes to replace a few of my items that are way too big now. (I actually bought a size SMALL top and another one in MEDIUM!!! Wow! I used to wear an XL. Things really are bigger in Texas...(I think the small is a fluke but it still felt great!) So great to have to say, "Do you have this in a smaller size?"

Since we were shopping I lost track of the time and missed my afternoon snack by over an hour and so my eating window had closed. I could have cheated and just ate anyway but I stayed true and fasted until lunch today. It felt great! I was a bit more hungry than usual in the evening but it faded away when I put my mind to something else.

This morning when I woke up I felt great and wasn't hungry at all. We went and got manicures and pedicures before lunch and then I broke my fast at noon. I started with a salad and then took a break until we made it to a restaurant downtown for lunch around 2pm.

The restaurant was great. An outdoor place with picinic tables and people with their dogs, a children's playground and a ping pong table among other outdoor games. Really nice. The food was great! I ate my fill and will be full for the rest of the evening I am sure. The weather has been beautiful 20 degrees plus! (70 for those Americans!)

Such a great feeling that no matter where I am or what I am doing this lifestyle can easily be adapted or shaped to fit me and my environment. That is the way that I will be successful. Diets that require special food or specific measurements is too difficult to adapt when you are not in your regular environment. Fast 5 is certainly the way to go for me!

PS. Mini Eggs are bigger in Texas too!


  1. You are doing so great!! Yay on the smaller tops!! I look forward to your posts each week. (((hugs)))

  2. And are we not the sweetest people ever?! Even our ♥'s are Big here!

    Glad your doing so well!

    I'm on day 5 of eating this way again and fasting dinner/breakfast! It's way easier then waiting and eating at 5pm for me!

    Yay on the downsizing!!!
