I lost 6lb last week! I think the last two weeks losses are skewed because of my surgery (the first weeks loss may have been higher if not for swelling from surgery and the second week would've been a bit lower) but overall 8lb in 2 weeks is amazing and something I have never achieved before in my life! It's not even as if it can be put down to water loss as I was already calorie counting and lost 6lb in the month before I discovered 5:2
5:2 seems to be agreeing with me. It suits my eating and it is lovely to skip breakfast and thus skip the pressing of the hungry button!
My OH, sister and daughters have all warned me not to lose too much more as become quite gaunt when I hit normal BMI, even the top end of it! I am holding my boobs to account for that though. They don't get much smaller in themselves and they must weigh a bit, but my back gets smaller.
