My Window to Health

The window in our dining area...
I officially "began" (again) on the 6th.  With fifteen days behind me, I'm looking ahead to meeting health and weight loss goals - with a deadline of June 1.

I haven't officially identified my "program" here, but perhaps it's time to unveil it.  I'm still learning the ins and outs, rationale and science behind Intermittent Fasting (or Feeding, as some call it).  There are several variations of Intermittent Fasting, but the one I'm following involves about 19 hours withOUT food and a window of 5 hours each day during which I eat.

It's the "window" concept that works for me.  I usually "open my window" around 1:30 when husband and I eat our main meal.  If I find myself still hungry at 4:30 or 5:00, I have a snack.  Then the window closes until the next day.

Really, I've not been hungry.  It's been mentally easier for me than some "diets".  And I have dropped a few pounds already!  Some people have made a lifetime of eating this way.  I'm not sure how long I'll continue it after I reach my goal.  For right now, I'm living well and learning much.


  1. I love the pic of your dining room and your title to this post. Perfect. Well I am thankful that you are on this journey with me, for ever long you are, it is a blessing sweet dear sister!!

  2. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, so going without can make you sluggish and headachy.Plus your metabolism can start to slow down. Why not only eat between 7 am and 4 pm or 5, nothing after 6 o'clock. THat usually cuts about 500+ calories out of everyone's diet. Keep walking too. Let us know how it all goes !

  3. Cool Rebecca! I love reading all these inspirational blogs. Love your dining rm photo and titlw too as Angela mentioned. Fasting rocks!-Melissa Jones

  5. You are encouraging me to stay strong during my own journey to develop more fruit, the one of self-control that is. I look forward to visiting often.
