GOAL: Increase strength/endurance/balance...build muscle, lose inches, and lose 9 more #...Strengthen my back and legs.


A friend (KADYDIDI) from our quilting guild introduced me to SP. I joined in August 2008, but didn't get around to doing this page until January 2009 when I signed up for the New You Bootcamp Challenge with my second daughter. I have struggled with weight issues for a while (since before the birth of my youngest-now 33). I want to get healthy, which includes losing some weight to help out my arthritis in my back, knees, and feet. I herniated 3 discs in my lower back causing some nerve damage in February 2010 and am still trying to rebuild my strength. I thank the Lord that I can finally walk right after 2 years! I was eating clean, but hit a plateau-so, I switched to slow carb (4HB) and have lost another 28.5 lbs. as of 2/4/13. I am currently following the plan life style.

If you try any variation of intermittent fasting I hope you find success. Sitting at a plateau sucks!!

Mary, thanks for the comment on my Wk 152 blog post. The intermittent fasting that I have done is where I don't eat until noon and then take in all of my days calories before 8-9 pm. I got the idea from a guy that had some anecdotal research on his training clients that showed that when they ate first thing in the morning they became very hungry a few hours later. Turns out that other research turned up the same thing in a lot of people. I can go without eating until the early afternoon pretty easily on most days so I don't find it difficult.

Your friend's system is a good one also with the only downside that your body eventually figures out that you are going to be low in calories every other day. One way around that is to flip a coin when you wake up, heads means full amount of calories, tails means reduced calories. Over the long term this will even out to 50% for each, but in the short term your body has no idea what it's going to get each day! Could get reduced calories for 3 days in a row then full calories for 2 days... All up to random chance.

Thanks for the comment on my blog post. I have toyed with the idea of giving up my free day, but I have put that thought away. I spend all week looking forward to Saturday and eating without guilt! If I didn't have that to look forward to I would be living a bleak existence!
