Just a single bite... chocolate cake, cheese cake, Cinnamon Roll, etc. And that was enough to stave off a Sweet Tooth Attack. For lunch I'd have one of the Chicken/Veggie Wraps, touted at 154 calories, and the bite of cake may have pushed that to 165... It worked out well.

I haven't been on the scale in several days... Tomorrow morning I'll see what has happened in the past 4-5 days. I haven't been pushing nearly as hard as I did before the New Year, but still exercising and eating small.

Well it's not like I'm starving myself, just keeping to a maximum of 600 calories on the fasting day. Sounds like you're not far off that yourself on some days? But it is still difficult occasionally, and I find I get colder on the fasting days, and definitely more irritable. I'm normally a real pussycat, but for some reason on the fast days I'm like a bear with a sore head . So that's why, once I reach my 11 stone 7 pounds target (73kg) I will try going to one day fasting per week, which reduces the pressure a tad.

Let us know how tomorrow's weighing ceremony goes.
