Hi I am Anna from Virginia. I have been struggling with my eating habits and weight for over a year now. I started overeating because of depression and loneliness. A year before I was 110 pounds, happy with a lot of confidence and comfortable in my own skin. I’m over 160 - 163 pounds right now and i’m hoping to get back on shape.
I am doing this because I feel sad and don’t want to see myself this way. I want to be comfortable and have more confidence.
Long Term and Short Term Goals:
Long term goals for me is to get to 110 pounds in the next 6 months.
Short term goals right now are to accomplish my planned goals one day at a time to achieve the bigger picture.
Some struggles I have faced in the past
I used to plan to start my weight loss journey the first of every month or or all Mondays, but then ill give up too soon because of depression and at that time food gives me the comfort i want. I’m really working to not seek food for comfort.
My game plan
I am not new to fasting, i have done OMAD and short term fasts before. I have never tried long term fasts, so i have decided to do rolling 72 hour fasts (Fast 71 hours, Refeed 1 hour, Repeat) for the next 10 weeks.
How do I feel right now?
I feel pretty excited to start my journey.
How will I feel once I achieve my goal?
I will be happy if i reach my goal weight. It will definitely boost my confidence too.
I am strong with a lot of will power and discipline. I am determined to achieve my goal.
