Hi all,
thought I'd share my experience.

Been doing 5:2 for best part of 3 months now and have lost around 12lbs in that time. While this hasn't been as fast as I was initially hoping for, it has been a pretty steady progression - and I think I need to learn a bit more restraint on my 'feast' days!

I've found an android app called Libra which I use to track my weight (it draws a trend line on your progress) and this really helps as when my weight goes up over the course of 2-3 'feast' days it reminds me that the general trend is downwards and that I will lose it again on my fast days.
(if someone can tell me how to include an image I'll post a screenshot of the trend to show you what I mean..)

I find the fasting quite easy now and like the fact I don't have to worry too much on my 'feast' days - seems to be working for me.. :smile:

Popped back up to the 155 range this morning (10/30/2017), but feels like this is the ceiling instead of the floor this time, which is encouraging. Besides, my monthly cycles appeared today, so must allow...

I'm currently shifting a lot of my mindset and methods this week, so I'm jumping off the weeks and switching to days. This is, after all, a whole life kind of thing, right? Besides, I don't like having...

Good luck, @moderatemeals! I think you'll love this way of life!
Losing 1.6 pounds is hardly a plateau! You are not going to keep losing at the same rate as the beginning. You should be very happy with 1 pound a week!
Thanks for the comment, cblasz.
Maybe this WOE is so successful that everyone's lost the weight and got on with their lives! I can hope ...

Yes, it is terribly dead here, especially lately. I think that people either just have all the information they need or have stopped this WOE. It is a shame. But stick around. It seems to go in waves....
