Another 2 pounds down! That brings me down to 228, or 40 pounds less than when I started on March 25th!
I am happy to see that after a semi-stall at the holidays that I am back to my previous 1 pound per week rate of weight loss. Some might find that too slow, but at 52 years old with a desk job, I’m very happy to see this progress! Turning this ol’ ship around, one pound at a time!
In addition, I just measured another half inch off of my waist, for a total of 6 inches so far! I am happy to report that my waist to hip ratio is now in the low-risk range. I’ve still got quite a bit of ground to cover to get my BMI to that point, but I’ll celebrate any victory I can along the way!
Intermittent fasting is going well. I have been using the 16/8 model successfully these last 3 weeks, and it fits into my daily schedule perfectly. I have never been one to be very hungry when I first get up in the morning, and so now that I am fat-adapted, a cup of coffee followed by plenty of water works fine for me until lunch. From there, it is just a normal eating schedule, just making sure to eat LCHF / Keto and to only eat when I am hungry (not bored or stressed).
Overall, like the rest of this lifestyle so far, this is very do-able for me!

Please also note: I am not a doctor or nutritionist. While this LCHF and ketogenic diet experiment has worked well for me so far, your mileage may vary. This diet needs to be balanced correctly, in order to avoid potential side effects. It is always a good idea to discuss any major health decisions with your doctor before getting started.
