I Ate The Damn Cake And Lost 21 Pounds

Today is a good day. No, a GREAT day.

This morning, I stepped on the scale and was amazed and ecstatic to see that I am officially 21 POUNDS LIGHTER since beginning my Intermittent Fasting journey at the end of January 2018. See the difference?

I've talked before about how I found IF and started my weight loss journey if you want to check it out.

The day I started IF, I weighed in at 149.8 lbs, the heaviest I'd ever been in my life. Today, I am 128.8 lbs. I haven't been close to this for almost a decade. I never thought I'd get back to 130 lbs, much less BELOW it!




And I did it without depriving myself, without sacrificing my favorite foods and without ever once feeling guilty about anything I ate.

Sure, I probably could've reached this milestone sooner had I been a bit stricter with myself, but that kind of defeats the purpose of what IF is all about.


Dr. Jason Fung, who's books on Intermittent Fasting can be found on the Resources page, says  “Don’t try to fit Life into Intermittent Fasting (IF); instead fit Intermittent Fasting into your Life." 

Once I started IF, I realized how true and FREEING this advice is. IF isn't about deprivation or restrictions. In fact, the opposite is true.

In one of my IF Facebook groups, a fellow member explained this lifestyle better than I ever could. She said, "We DO NOT sit on the sidelines like hungry wallflowers, watching everyone else drink and eat while we feel miserable and left out. That’s not a good life. That’s a Diet. We don’t diet. Life is *supposed* to be a balance of fasting and feasting and when it’s time to celebrate-we FEAST. We eat the damn cake."

Words can't describe how much I LOVE what she wrote and believe in her words. "We eat the damn cake." Yes. We. Do!!

If you'd like to know more about Intermittent Fasting, leave a comment or shoot me an email! I also highly recommend checking out the IF section of our Resources page. I'd love to help you on your journey.

To eating the damn cake,

Carly

Carly Everywhere I look I see people struggling with weight loss and unsure of what program to follow to lose weight. I see a lot of people convinced that they must count calories/macros/points to lose weight. When I tell them they can let that go and simply count time, they don’t trust me. People are terrified of letting go of calorie counting or points counting or otherwise trust that fat loss with IF is dif
