Happy Thanksgiving everyone! I'm headed to Florida to see my family. It'll be nice to get a little sun and some extra exercise!

Happy Thanksgiving! I have lost 3 pounds this month. :lol: First time in over a year! :grin: I still do 4-3 but I switched to eating windows on my non fast days and this seams to have worked! So now I'm doing 16/8 Sa,T,W,F and 4-3 M,TH, S. I don't count calories (hate it) but with an eating window along with 4-3 it is working for me this month (we will see how the holidays goes). I love how flexible this lifestyle it!

I'm in Pennsylvania. I don't really remember how I stumbled upon 5:2, but I do remember seeing DR Moseley's show on PBS. I've tried IF before, but never had the patience to make it a way of life. I'm at the point now where I'm very fit from 2 years of boot camp workouts, but still not liking the number on the scale. 30-40 lbs off would suit me nicely, but I'm not in a hurry. I feel strong and healthy and just need this layer of fat gone. I'm actually leaning more toward 4:3 or even ADF to get myself in the groove. It has been slow....only 2 lbs in 3 weeks, but I'm headed in the right direction.

Let's keep up with each other here and check in with our progress, questions or concerns. I love an active forum!

Yah want quicker results !?

Try the 16:8 regime , or even better the 20/4 !

I seem to recall losing around 12lb in the first 14 days of so ... and around 2lb a week after that ...

very impressive, Canoegal!! I am up a little, but hopefully when I get back to my normal habits next week, it'll go away quickly!

Hi, so, who is up for Superbowl Sunday? I don't even like football (but I sort of understand it after all these years) and I must be the ONLY one not interested in the commercials - though lots are waiting for Lady Gaga - BUT, we had a relatively dry January and I was looking forward to Sunday for a couple of drinks and chicken wings and then some !! Sort of sampled the alcohol a bit early - anyway, it should be a good day and a chance to relax and enjoy and not worry about cals, carbs or anything !!!

What are you all planning??? I KNOW you are planning something !!!

I'm a South African living in the US, and even after 19 years, still not interested in football or the commercials. However, I have to say, I religiously followed FSU's football when my offspring went to college there. She recently graduated, I'm still a FSU football fan, without watching the games, if that makes sense :)

I'll be tuning in on Sunday for Lady Gaga though, I do like her and her music. And perhaps I'll have an adult beverage as well, since I've been real good not drinking in the week for the last 3-ish weeks.

I honestly think I'd rather have a colonoscopy than watch the superbowl. Even my husband isn't interested. He says he used to enjoy football, but now all he sees is people getting concussions.

I am a football fan and a Patriots fan, so I am excited for the Super Bowl. I will be going to a party and hopefully not overdoing it too much on food/drink. Going to try to get a walk in today at least! I like the commercials, but not into Lady Gaga, which is good, because that will give me a break from the TV! I also run a little box pool at work, so that's fun too!
