I'm praying for a loss tomorrow but SOOO scared I'm gonna be same or up.

I log my food online and here's my stats for what I ate today:
Total Calories-1,237
Carbs-8
Fat-99
Protein-74

It also says that if I ate this way everyday I'd lose 5.3 pounds in 5 weeks. I'm assuming that is based on calories?

Calories in/Calories out math I'd say.

I'm starting an egg fast today. So far, I've only had 2 eggs fried in bacon grease. I'm getting ready to go fry up a couple more. I just don't feel hungry though! lol Eggs keep me feeling full almost all day.

4/24 249.6

Will check in tomorrow.

Take care,

Tami

I love how we're all doing the egg fast together!

Yesterday I weighed in before the fast and was 163 pounds. Now I know that a bit of that was water weight because I overdosed on peanut butter the day before. :blush: I KNOW that I must part with my PB...but I will miss it so! Yesterday I had a total of 14 eggs and around 2 Tbsp of mayo. Today, after 1 day egg fast, I weighed in at 161.4. I think the water weight is gone. Tomorrow's weigh in will hopefully be below 160.

As of today, my current total is 6 eggs. I'll probably get to 12-13.

This egg fast is really helping me gain perspective on my eating habits, and realizing that is doesn't take much food to satisfy me. I have not felt any hunger because eggs are very satisfying. Now I was VERY tempted yesterday when I cooked juicy hamburgers to forget the fast, but I'm glad I stuck with it!
Happy egging ladies!

I'm only up to 3 eggs. I don't know if I can eat that many more eggs. I'm not sick of them, I'm just not hungry.

The suggestions in first post say at least 6 a day but other posts say those are just guidelines and many folks have done their own thing.

I'm doing eggs only, other than some fat to cook them in or a little mustard, mayo and vinegar for deviled eggs. UI'm really wanting some cheese BUT also want to see if this will kick me out of my stall. I was down this morning but only to my previous pre-period weight. I will consider it a REAL loss if I go lower than that.


Happy egging y'all!

Good afternoon y'all. How's eveyone hanging in there? Tired of eggs yet?

I'm enjoying them. Although I'm not very hungry today. I do have a question.

Has anyone had a headache or other issues with the fast. I've never done a fast before. I have a headache today and thought maybe caffeine was the issue as I had more green tea than usual. But others suggested that caffeine will help with the pain so just wondering if this could be a detox symptom and if anyone else had experienced such side effects?

I'm only doing 3 days. Day one has been rough. Eggs aren't my fave anyway. I've had 3 hard boiled eggs, 2 fried, and 2 more hard boiled ones chopped up with a little mayo and salt on them. And more MiO flavored water of course. I'm not really hungry, and I do have a headache. But I've had a headache everyday for a week or so now due to some hormone replacement that I have just begun.

Started today at 150.8....Up!!! Wahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!

6 eggs in so far.

My eggs froze overnight! I hate......HATE! .....my fridge! Salvaged what I could for breakfast and lunch! Making new hardboiled right now so I will be ready tomorrow morning!

Question? Is there anything bad that happens when eggs freeze? in the shell that is. Never thought to look it up before.

Didn't get a headache from them last time...will see this time....Caffeine usually helps headaches...some headache meds include it. It is when you get off of it that the headaches come from it

I managed 6 eggs today. The last 3 I cooked in butter and then added a pat of butter on top with some salt and they were delicious! I've never put butter on top of my eggs before but that may be my new favorite!

Day 1 down. Hopefully I will see something good on the scale tomorrow morning!

I'm feeling unusually tired today myself. I have felt like I needed a nap since late this afternoon.

Day one- Wednesday 25th May

I weighed in 81.9 kgs. I need to loose atleast 5 lbs in these 7 days to reach my target to get out of the 80's and into 70's. I hope to be 79 kg by 1st June.

Had 3 eggs sunny side up fried in ghee and one cup tea with some cream for b/fast.

I am thinking to do Jillians 30 day shred level one for 5 days and then 2 days off. Not able to go to the gym as dh coming late from work. He usually takes care of the kids when i go to the gym.

Will update at the night on the whole day so i get a record of all my food.

Good luck

Aqsa

down 0.4

Little disappointed. Might be b/c I was up until after 2 watching storms.

Yesterday:
5 hard boiled eggs (2 w/ mayo)
4 fried eggs

Honestly, I had hoped for a bit more.

Good morning y'all!

I'm down a total of 1.8 for a new low of 132.4. I was honestly hoping for a larger drop but some is better than none.
