Lifetime Weight Watcher Experiments With Intermittent Fasting


As someone who has spent decades following the dietary mandate to always begin the day with breakfast, skipping it is a very big deal.

I’m a creature of habit and a “good girl” who tends to do what she is told.

I’ve been lectured on the importance of breakfast since I was a kid and had it reinforced as a lifetime Weight Watcher.

For the past several months I’ve been playing around with intermittent fasting (IF).  Have you heard of it?

Instead of focusing on “what to eat,” intermittent fasting (IF) focuses on “when to eat.” So, it’s really more of an an “eating pattern” than “diet” plan.

Many studies show that fasting can have powerful effects on your body and brain, and may even help you live longer. For example, here’s a Washington Post article on the link between fasting and breast cancer recurrence that really got my attention.


My real name is Debra (Debbie Sue). Sarah is a nickname given to me in high school. My husband has always called me that so here in Florida It's all I am known by. I was born and raised in Illinois. My son and I moved to Colorado in 1982. I taught school for 17 years. Then I ran a homeschooling/preschool/daycare until 2006 when I moved to Florida after my son, Bobby died suddenly. He was almost 26. Danny and I live and work at a state park here. I miss the mountains and climate of Colorado. I miss snow and the four seasons. I miss Bobby.
