My Weight Loss Journey Update.

May, 2018 to Sept, 2018 :


I embarked on my weight loss journey in May, 2018.


Once I started, I became obsessed, and lost around 40 pounds in less than 6 months.


However, I overdid it, as a result of which my metabolism got affected, and my body hurt.

Oct, 2018 to Feb, 2019 :


After my dad passed away in Oct, 2018, I started eating a lot of junk food, due to the increased stress.


I stuck to fasting throughout this phase, and hence, increased only a couple of pounds.

March, 2019 to the Present :


Due to examinations, I shifted from OMAD to 16:8 fasting, in March, 2019.


However, yet again, due to the stress, I didn’t follow a particularly healthy diet.


As a result, during the past 9 months, I’ve gained around 10 pounds.


The weight gain is mainly due to the unhealthy eating, and not the longer eating hours.


I’m glad that I didn’t gain all the 40 pounds that I lost, but I am currently working on losing these 10 pounds as well.

Fasting, exercise and logging meals :


One thing I have stuck to, right from June, 2018, is intermittent fasting.


I make it a point to listen to my body, and vary the fasting hours accordingly. On some days, I feel hungry after 12 hours of fasting, and on others, I don’t feel hungry even after fasting for 22 hours.


Exercise has also become a vital part of my life. I do not exercise daily, although I try my best to do so, as it helps with my anxiety, and motivates me to stay on track.


I try to log my meals as much as possible, although, to be honest, I have not been doing it regularly this year.

Listen to your body :


Whatever exercise routine or diet you follow, make sure to listen to your body.


Also, make changes which you are sure to stick to for a lifetime.


Do not exert yourself too much, and give your body the rest and cheat meals it requires.


Mental health is also vital for a happy body and a happy life.


Don’t be too hard on yourself. You’ll reach your goal sooner than you know it!
