Target achieved!!

I :heart: 5:2

I'm 54.9 kg as of this morning. Thrilled to bits. I've lost 19.7% of my body weight and am now healthy on all measurements. I'm still aiming to replace more of my body fat with muscle and need to firm up the flab round my middle. I will allow up to 2kg more weight loss as a buffer zone, but I'm happy with my size now :cool:

Thank you Dr Michael Mosley!

Tantalisingly close...

I started at 68.4 kilos this year. My target is to get to a healthy BMI with 55 kg.

This morning (after yesterday's fast), I'm 60.8 - getting so close now and it really looks feasible for me to get below 60kg, which I had previously given up any aspirations to, as it just didn't seem possible with exclusion diets or simple calorie counting.

By doing my BMR and understanding TDEE properly though, I now have a much better grasp of what my body really needs - a lot less than I thought! - and the fasting has helped so much as I don't snack any more and I feel full when I have had enough.

Loving that it has also re-inspired my cooking and got me on a rocket booster to writing my next cookbook!
