    Ah, your post resonates so much with me. I gained 4 stone with each of my two children. Sounds to me like when you’re in the zone, you know exactly how to lose, what an accomplishment. It’s nice to reward yourself at each milestone too. Good luck, you got this!

    " I adjusted my kcal down to 800."

    Per day?

    That's dangerously low. Is this under doctor's supervision?
  • miskellyamiskellya Posts: 7Member Member Posts: 7Member Member
    The blood sugar diet / Fast 800 is based on intermittent fasting. It’s not suitable for anyone who has had eating disorders in the past but not vastly different (IMO) to VLCD such as Cambridge or Exante in terms of calorie deficit. I believe 8 weeks is the maximum length advises without a break. It’s been shown to be highly effective in reversing the effects of type 2 diabetes - which I don’t have so not applicable to me. It’s becoming quite mainstream I think - although weight loss techniques do always seem to go in and out of favour. I didn’t have or need any medical supervision as I didn’t have any prior health issues or side effects.

    I would say MFP has been the life changing factor for me. The rules of weigh myself every day, log everything, stick to calorie goal - be that 1200 or 800 kcal per day. I plan to do a couple of 800 days per week going forward as my maintenance. I just turned 40 last week so for a couple of weeks I’ve just been going with the flow and have not been monitoring at all. But as of Tuesday all celebrations are over and I will crack on again!

    Congratulations! Your journey sounds quite similar to mine, also 5'7'', 198lbs starting on 1st Jan this year, and goal is 138, I am currently at 158 on 1200/day :) it's great to read inspirational stories like yours, congratulations again and thank you for sharing.

    Way to go! I am also on 1200 cal diet, although I don't weigh my food, I mostly estimate. I am 10lbs away from my goal weight. 5'2, current weight 130.
    I also eat junk sometimes but stay on my cal goals no matter what. I don't share my diary because I am embarassed that I ate 5 tacos for lunch some days or that I ate 10 kisses at night when I am at work.
    Anyways, I can't reduce my calorie less than 1200 so I switch my work out to 1 hour cardio 3-4x a week max 5x a week then weight train after.
