18th Fast Day

I’ve been dreading this fast day for the past few days, I think the novelty of the diet is wearing off and I’m getting a bit bored of it but I need to push through. Not so much that I would stop, I don’t really start and stop things especially because it’s working but I really needed to motivate myself to do it today. Saying that I found it particularly easy today which is weird because I was so not into it, I just tended to not feel hungry which was lucky really.

Lunch: Potato Waffle and Spaghetti Hoops – 214 calories
Dinner: Chinese, garlic & honey chicken and noodles – 280 calories
Snack: Shape yogurt – 53 calories
Total: 547 calories

Okay so I did go over my calories today, which is a bit disappointing. The noodles were more calories than I realised and I didn’t have time to go out and get lower calorie ones. I could have done without the yogurt but I really needed something sweet so I just couldn’t help it. But I guess 50 calories more isn’t the end of the world.


17th Fast Day

I’ve been so busy today I’ve hardly had time to think about food. Although in the few times I had nothing to do, I have been hungry. I’ve lost another 3 pounds, so now we’re up to 12 pounds! I love the progress I’m making and how I have figured out how I can eat a few meals a day without going too much over 500 calories because I do constantly crave food. I don’t think I’ll ever not be hungry at all but I can live with that.

Lunch: Thins with chicken and cucumber – 150 calories
Snack: 2 satsumas – 40 calories
Snack: Apple crumble shape yogurt – 53 calories (!!!)
Dinner: Haddock with a herby crust and salad – 200 calories
Snack: Shape Yogurt – 60 calories
Total: 503 calories

I had my normal lunch at around 12pm, the satsumas pretty much straight after, I found out the crumble shape yogurts are only 53 calories which is great, and I had one of those at 4.30pm, then dinner at around 6.30pm, I switched cod to haddock and at only 100 calories a piece, it was amazing. Another yogurt at around 8.30pm and thats it. I did feel hungry after and had to fight the urge to want something else but you know it’s always a struggle in the evening.
