Day FIVE:
No wheat, bananas, chips, popcorn, bagels or bread.

The cravings have virtually disappeared, thankfully. I may need to cut back on the applesauce pouches in order to get a weight loss, but I'll see how it goes today.

Practice plan thru September 30:

Alternate Day Fasting - Monday, Wednesday and Friday (ADF M-W-F). Same as Quarter 2 of 2020. Also on eating days trying to keep protein at around 1g/lb body weight. Also I plan on not stepping on a scale until Oct 1st nor tracking carb macro (only protein) This should be fun and relaxing!

Tracking below. First line is days of week, lines below them are hits and misses for the days that week. I'll note if it was 24 or 36hr fast.

X = 24-36hr Fast
O = Eat

Day SIX:
No wheat, bananas, chips, popcorn, bagels or bread.

Still 235

I need to cut back on the applesauce pouches and add some more exercise. I walked some this morning.

I'm not really hungry this morning, I just had a little broth and a tiny bit of chicken. Of course I had THREE applesauce pouches in the middle of the night! Not a good idea. No reason to eat THREE at once. It doesn't seem to trigger cravings though.........I don't end up binging on bread or bagels or anything........

I had Perhaps 1200-1400 calories which is fine.

I went swimming, although it was mostly moving around in the water which was WONDERFUL, but I think I overdid it as the breathing was not so good at night, so I took 2 puffs of the steroid Symbicort. I used to take 4 puffs a day regularly so that's not so bad.

Day 65 of my "It's time to lose some weight" Challenge

The first half of the week was perfect. Now to close it out strong. I now have 2 daughters at home. DD2 (Courtney) moved home temporarily while she looks for a new apartment. All three of us are doing keto and I've found the determination to stick to my tighter plan while they practice their more liberal version of low carb.

Days at or under 20 carbs: 54
Days with good portion control: 57
Days avoiding my "Problem" LC foods: 57

Day SEVEN already? Time goes by fast......

I'm down to 234 today so 1 more pound and that will make a 30 pounds loss (although I'm STILL a bit skeptical of the accuracy of the old scale)

I continue on avoiding my triggery foods
Wheat/bread/bagels/bananas/chips/popcorn/tater tots/regular potatoes (I eat sweet potatoes sometimes)

I'm actually not eating any rice either but that is not usually even available here at home so as long as I don't order any it's not a problem.
