Who knew that such a lovely waist was waiting for you?! Massive congratulations - for all on here know just how determined you have had to be.....not just twice, but 7 days a week! You are a thrilling advert for 5:2, many thanks for sharing your story...it is inspirational and gives the rest of us such hope!
Will look forward to the wedding photo in due course....
You are TOTALLY AWESOME! Well done indeed!
We would love to include your story in the success stories section. Please do let me or Moogie know if you're happy for us to post it there!
I hope your sister is doing well, too.
Thanks especially to those asking after my sister. She's travelling okay, still managing on her own kidneys, and is hoping to for a while longer so long as her lupus doesn't flare up again. The annoying news is that us siblings all got tested against her and we all have this one genetic marker that my sister has built up antibodies to, so it highly increases the chance of rejection and she'd need a major blood transfusion to even attempt it. So it looks like I'm not going to be able to give her this kidney that I've been keeping nice and safe for her...her hubby is now the preferred donor, despite having less markers in common.
Well, I'm off to find the maintainers tent - this next bit of the journey is going to be interesting...fitting into the dress! I like having goals to work to, so I guess that's my next one. So you'll definitely be seeing me around - I'd miss all you guys!
Food journaling was a big thing for me, and estimating my calorie intake on the app. While I rarely weighed food, it kept me mindful. And looking back, the calorie deficit that 5:2 provided in a week correlated quite closely with my loss. 5:2 provided the tool so that I didn't feel like I was dieting everyday, so I never got tired or bored of dieting.
I'm so pleased you have gained the energy you lost without realising the slowly creeping weight. It makes such a difference to our quality of and outlook in life.
Best wishes to your sis, Lupus is very tough, a dear friend is 25 years in, but my, her passionate and loving character shines through every single day.
So, what plans for the dress ............ over to Fashionista thread?
