I had hip surgery in December and gained an unreal twenty to thirty pounds with (self) medicated pain management and the inability to move.
In an attempt to lose weight I had given up drinking but it seemed to have made barely a dent.
I got back on the scale this morning after a few weeks and found my weight has not changed despite me not eating at night. I tell you ladies and gentlemen, when you hit 50 your body becomes the stupidity machine.
Thus I am returning to fasting with something radical, simply because I am really really pissed off at my body. I am fasting every other day. I guess that would be the 5-2 method. I have been trying the 20 hour method but that is NOT working as stated above, so I am doing it hard-core.
If family wishes to go out and eat or do a funch (fun lunch- my five year olds favorite kind of meal) I will eat but avoid carbs and TRY to stay within a 1500 calorie limit.
Oh yeah, on feast days I plan to stick to 1500 calories. Take that Stupidity Machine!
Did I mention I gave up drinking until I reach a blessed and sacred 199 pds.
