With Princess Dieter's blog "Two Years to Happy Weight After" posting about her Intermittent Fasting and how she is just peeling off the pounds...and her links...I see the light!
I researched Short Term Intermittent Fasting at Lean Gains, The Life and Fast-5 . I had always heard the rule no eating after a a certain hour or limit your carbs early in the day and lesser at night...This is actually a plan that I can do with little change. Actually, it works right into my schedule.

I am doing it with my 23 yr old daughter who is also overweight needing to lose 60 lb. She had a baby last May, and I think she will shed that weight gain off quickly because she is young and it is maternity weight gain. The great thing about after having a baby, if you diet and exercise right after it, the weight loss is always amazing. I hope it is that way a year later. Considering this IF is geared to attack the stubborn fat...hey We are very optimistic!
We started on Netflix and tried a sadistic version and laughing and groaning through it. Finally I convinced her to go to YouTube where this skinny man was kind and slow. LOL It was a total jelly roll on the floor, but we felt it even though some positions we could barely get off the ground with... and a good laugh before breakfast was good for our soul!
Edit in a year later: Like did we even keep to this? It really helped at first and then somewhere I lost the structure. So far I have sabotaged myself into only losing the initial 50 lbs. I need to do better. (May 14, 2012) It is like it is mental. I can do this!
