Still in the 160s!

Wow! This morning I am STILL in the 160s! Two days in a row, 168.4! So far so good! I am doing my long fast tomorrow so that should help to keep me below the 170 mark. I finally felt like I could update my before and after picture. I was waiting until I was in the 160s before I changed it. Wow! I can hardly believe the transformation! Amazing when you see it like this.

I look like a completely different person! It feels great. I am happy with how I look right now and confident that I can reach my goal of losing another 30 pounds or so.

Tonight we are having our favourite greek food at The Greek Islands restaurant. I am looking forward to celebrating tonight with my wonderful hubby. Tomorrow it is back to pottery class where we are working on teapots.

Fasting has also helped me feel better this week. I was feeling a bit sick and in the past when I get sick, I am out for the count. Usually in bed for 3-5 days and REALLY sick. I never understood how people could just push through a cold and work and continue on with their daily activities because I was always so dead to the world. But, since I have begun fasting, I have not been sick like that even once. I have had a few sore throats that have lasted a couple of days and then gone away. I have been able to continue on with my daily activities and not ended up in bed.

I really believe that intermittent fasting has played a role in that. I am no scientist but it seems logical to me that if you are not using up your body's resources on constant digestion then it has more energy to fight off illness. I think that is also why I no longer get any pimples. I seem to heal quicker and easier. Anyway, from my experience, intermittent fasting has done more for me than help me lose weight. I has improved my life in many ways.


  1. You look AWESOME! Isn't it amazing how much younger people look when they lose weight? It even holds true with you.

    I am so proud of you!

    I think you're right about the IF and sickness. I should visit you everyday because you spur me to get back on track with IF.

    Bless you!

  2. Unbelievable! You look GREAT!! You've always been very pretty but you look nice and trim. Thanks for the inspiration! Lisa

  3. You look FABULOUS! Even in the the Halloween pics that you posted you can really see a big change! Keep it up! You are a great inspiration.

  4. You do look terrific! Your success has inspired me to try Fast-5 again and stick with it this time. Congrats!

  5. You are drop dead gorgeous now!!! Pretty before, but a knockout now!!! You go girl! I am your biggest fan (no pun intended). I can relate to feeling healthier now that I practice i-fasting. I look and feel younger. People seem shocked when I tell them my age. The neat thing is that I am at a place where I like how I look in photographs now. I posted a weigh in a few moments ago...go see :) Love ya!!! I am only 5 lbs away from a weight loss be in the 120's. I haven't seen the 120's since high school. Thanks again for your support sweet girl.

  8. Hi,

    You look amazing, I have just been contemplating either doing a liquid diet or IF.
    Having dabbled in IF a while ago, when I lost weight and felt amazing. But your blog and posts have made me decided to really go the IF way and try and consistently do it. Thank you for your wonderful blog, it really helps to inspire and encourage. Please keep posting.
