For the last few weeks, I have stuck with my intermittent fasting routine. I have been able to limit my meal to just once a day...usually between 5-8pm. I had started doing this 2 months ago but I always consumed heavy cream with decaf tea in the morning. Even though I know that it is allowed, I felt like I was cheating and not really fasting for an extended time period. 

So about 3 weeks ago, I stopped the heavy cream completely. I stuck with eating just once a day - low carb, low sodium and vegetarian. It wasn't too bad until I started to get fed up of eating the same things. Tik tok came to rescue when I found many creative ways to make vegetarian options. 

This morning I randomly decided to check my weight. I was surprised at the 10 pounds I had lost since the last time I checked. When I was obsessing over it, nothing happened. But it seems like my body likes this new fasting and diet routine. 

Two more weeks to get my 3 month check up. Then I get to find out if I travel home. I am feeling optimistic.
