"By the way, a nice bonus after a night of drinking is that it effectively rids you of water retention. You may experience the "whoosh" effect, which I've talked about in my two-part series about water retention. That in itself can be motivating for folks who've been experiencing a plateau in their weight loss."
In any event, I'm pleased at my results so far and look forward to seeing how I will look in another two months - just in time for Memorial Day at the Jersey Shore.
Here they are - Pics from my IF journey over the past two months. I started in mid January and took the last pics this morning. All in all, only two months so far, but I can see some results already. Looking back at how soft I was just a short while ago has had a bonus. The fire's been lit! I have been improving and I have a fresh motivation to keep it up.

My abs are still hidden under a nice insulating layer of fat, but I'm sure that will be the last to go. Only two months of IF and I'm down to 116 lbs from 128 - and, while I have no reliable bodyfat measurements - I've definitely lost fat and gained some lean mass.) I still have quite a ways to go to get lean, but this is a marathon, not a sprint!
