Are these figures correct?

11 days without drink and I have not stopped eating.

I think its boredom.
11 days for me, too.

However..

I'm intermittent fasting during the week, not eating anything until I get home from work, when I have my tea, just drinking water, black coffee, green tea, mint tea etc, throughout the day.

Saturdays I eat, and drink what I want when I want (non alcoholic) within reason.

Lost nearly half a stone in 11 days :shock:

Rice cakes, they are 20 odd calories each, take a bit of effort to chew on and (for me at least) work when the 'nibbles' set in.

Like SL I've lost 6lb since new year by going dry and dropping the pizzas (none of the IF stuff though).

You're just doing one meal a day? That's good going! How many calories are you managing to get down in that one meal though?

Not sure to be honest, probably not enough though.

It's hard work in the beginning, but the random high you get when the hunger subsides at around 1pm/2pm, really is quite something.

I know... currently I'm doing 18/6 intermittent fasting but a couple of years back I did a full 5 day fast on nothing but water, an occasional black coffee, and electrolytes. Day 1 was the hardest. By day 3 I was actually feeling quite good and energetic. I walked about 6 miles to work - and then another 6 back again later, aswell as doing some exercise at home. I didn't feel lethargic at all. I'll be honest - the main reason I did it was that my missus told me I'd never be able to manage it when I mentioned it once. I'm a sucker for reverse psychology.

Had beers last night. Social scene at the football was too much for me and I caved.

Useless ****er.

wasn't you going to try and attempt a year?!

Did it taste nice? I am dreading west ham on Sunday, hoping to get there just before kick off and leave just after the final whistle.

15 days almost completed. Feeling good. Sleep not as deep this week.

Ran up a bloody steep trail yesterday morning. Had to stop twice but a few weeks ago my heart would have been exploding out of my chest.

Been tempted a couple of times but not been near any bars or anything.

Nearly two weeks, made easier by the fact, that I haven't even fancied a drink.

Good work, wolfie!

I said I wanted to do a year, but I'm definitely going to take it month by month.

I'd not set any particular timescale. Just wanted to stop for a bit.

Not really no. Ate far too much crap yesterday as well in the aftermath.

4 cans of Goose Island IPA whilst watching the match last night.

Beautiful stuff.

Me three, though I didn't dream I was pissed (I don't often remember my dreams) though more chance to dream would be nice, unlike S-H my sleep as been very poor and broken for a while. No booze though since the 30th and going strong, no ready meals or pizza either, my biggest sin this year has been a 2 finger chocolate orange kit-kat whilst watching the game on Sunday(was the last one left)

I am on perma-graze on the old biscuits and other snacks at the moment, but still look slimmer and have bags more energy.

Am drinking loads of tea, too.

I'm having some really vivid and random dreams, last night my house was being haunted by the very angry, Lou Ferrigno version of the Hulk..
