So last night we had Americana come to town which is pretty cool for little new Plymouth. I was a bit of a bogan in my teenage years so I love to be amongst the smell of burning rubber and the noise that deafens you for the rest of the night especially with 800 hot rods rolling through our small “city”.
We grabbed some dinner at Sushi Ninja which is my favourite place ever, it’s the only place I can eat out and stay true low carb, everyone says to me but sushi has rice, well yes it does but real Japanese food doesn’t have to. So I had tuna tataki with wasabi mayo, chiku-mayo which is like the yummiest thing on earth, they call it a fish “cake” but is kind of like calamari with heaps of grilled mayo and just to die for, and then my beloved edamame beans which are very satisfying and a great compliment to dinner. So I ate at 6pm and lasted all night till 12 when I started getting seriously hungry but the wow thing for me is just to even last that long without eating, I used to only go 3 hours and be screaming for food, just another wonderful benefit of low carb.
I did weigh myself this morning I can’t help it, but I shouldn’t have because when it reads not so good it does frustrate me. Maybe I’ll take some of the advice Marc from gave Beastie girl and to throw out the scale….don’t know if I can actually do that tho.

Well here goes, my first post...
so I've been doing so well with my weightloss, losing about 1kg a week consistency, having lost a total of 16kg which is wonderful, however it has slowed or stopped, so yesterday I did my first 24 hour fast, I had dinner at 6.30pm Sunday night and didn't have anything to eat until 6.30pm last night. I had read a lot of blogs and articles which talk about how fasting can break you from a stall/plateau and "reset" your hunger which I think I needed.

I won't lie it wasn't easy I was sooo hungry, even being in deep ketosis I was still hungry but it wasn't the type of hunger where you think you might pass out, it was just a deep knawing hunger which was on and off, quite weird. I had my dinner and was soo hungry I ended up eating a bit too much and then had that horrible full feeling. However today has been good,I haven't felt like I needed to "catchup" on my calorie intake which is great. I haven't weighed myself again, I've decided to wait until the weekend and I guess I won't take too much notice since at this stage I have added weight training and the scale might not give me the reading I want. Patience is not one of my traits ;)
