I am doing the Intermittent Fasting on the 16:8 schedule except yesterday it was closer to 12:12 since I was at a friends home and also in a meeting. I still did well with my calories though. I am 67 years old and the weight has not been coming off as quickly as I would like (6.8 lbs in 2 weeks) BUT I have cut my diabetes medicine in half already and my numbers have not been this good for decades. I have not measured yet because I am waiting 1 month between measurements, but I can tell by my clothes that I am losing inches. I average a little under 1200 calories a day and am slowing working up on exercise minutes since I have issues with my feet. I need to lose about 150 lbs. I have been eating clean and healthy and using SlimFast shakes. I took cake to my friends' house for her birthday yesterday and was not even tempted. I am aiming for this to be a whole-life change of thinking and eating and not just a diet.
With God's help and so many supportive people, I will reach my goal!
