    Yes, I’m going well, thanks Dawn, how’s life been going for you? I’m 5 weeks in to a rapid 800 start and so far so good. It’s been a while for me too. Zippers ready for Christmas Eve!!

    Sounds like it’s going well shoegirl, I bet you’re having good results after 5 weeks.I had a lovely holiday recently which recharged my batteries but the photos confirmed my mid section does not handle carbs well:/ Am trying to go extra low carb for the next few weeks (lower than I usually do on Fast800) to help that zip go up by Christmas Eve!

    That sounds like a good plan. I’m hoping to stay on 800 per day for another 3 weeks (until the beginning of December) then maybe ease a little depending on how many cms I’ve lost. Like you I find the waistline goal makes more sense than the scales.

    This is a great thread to have bumped back to the top of the list, thanks Dawn. Good to have a reminder it isn’t all about what reading is on the scales.
    Have a non-scales goal to work towards is very motivating and I’m sure if you stay focused, you’ll get the zipper on that gilet closed by Christmas eve.
    Showgirl, well done on five weeks back on the Fast 800 … getting back to basics occasionally is a good move. Helps to us the refamiliarise ourselves with portion control …. something I think many of us find sliding in maintenance.
    Best wishes to you both…. hope you both achieve your personal pre-Christmas goals.

    Hi SunnyB, thanks for your positive words of encouragement! How are you going? Any tips for when I move into the second stage of the program and start adding more food together with fasting days? I’m worried that the weight will jump back on!

    Hi Shoegirl, moving out of the 800 is daunting, but just take it slowly and continue to avoid the high carb and processed foods and you’ll do fine. Increase your intake slowing over a couple of weeks, keeping an eye on the scales, but also listening to your body and checking garment fit …. a non-scales gauge.

    Over the eight weeks, your body will have adjusted to needing less food in both quantity and carbs, so don’t be scared to trust it. If you make your food choices using the BSD principles, you shouldn’t go far wrong.
