Not all of the pounds I gained during my stressed out binge but a loss for which I am grateful.
It has allowed me to learn something about my sleep pattern. I have been monitoring my sleep closely and when I do eat a lot at night especially carbs I sleep like a log. Last night I got 7 hours 56 minutes (according to Fitbit Flex) of good sleep. When I don't eat a lot at night I sleep about 5 hours, wake up for 2, then go back to sleep for about 1 or 2 more hours. Interesting and does make sense as I do wake up hungry some nights.
So this will now enable me to organise my day better. It may be that I need to eat the majority of my food at night but without starving myself during the day. I do not wish to get stupidly hungry come 5pm!
So after one month of attempting Diet Chef (I did not stick to the plan at all) I have lost 2.25 lbs and I am happy with that - 0.5 lbs a week is a cracker for me and will do :D I've learnt patience ;)
Here's to month 2 and the run up to Christmas :D
