Intermittent Fasting June 19th

by Dave on June 19, 2009

Is the plateau broken ?

Just completed my weigh in for this week and I have lost 1lb ( 0.5 kilos).

Current Weight is 84 kilos approx 185lbs .

After 2 weeks of staying the same, This week the scales have moved down.

As I mentioned in my post earlier in the week This was the first time I have experienced a plateau since I became a retired dieter and started using intermittent fasting for weight loss.

My weight loss has slowed down now, but I expected this, and if you are looking to lose weight long term, then you should too. The fast weight loss at the start is a great motivator, but you do have to remember as you lose the weight, the rate you lose at will slow down.

I will say though , when I lose body fat now, even when it is only 1lb, I can notice the difference.

I do not expect to lose more than 1lb ( 0.5 kilos) per week now, but I am happy with this. We do have to remember that to lose 1lb I need to cut approx 3,500 calories per week from my diet. As my body weight has reduced , I am using less calories than previously, so to lose more than this would now be very difficult.

I have been a retired dieter for almost 6 months now, and the weight loss for that time is 46lbs , so I am only 10lbs off my 12 month target.  When you hit a plateau like I did, it is good to remember your original goals. This will stop you getting  disheartened by a couple of weeks where the scales don’t move.  It may take me the rest of the year to lose that 10lbs, or it my take 10 weeks. What I do know is I won’t lose it quick, but when I look at what I have achieved over the last months I can be patient.
