This weightloss journey

by Karenm on 26 Sep 2013, 22:21

I started dieting after one of my sisters refused gastric surgery last year and instead she opted for healthy eating and exercise. (She lost a stone then put it and more back on. She started slimming world last week and lost 6lb!)

I used MFP and list 43lb before finding 5:2
It was actually two GPs who mentioned it to my husband and I was very sceptical. I've bought some kindle 5:2 books and started last Sunday.

Hasn't been hard so far. Lost 2lb last week, which isn't likely to be water as I'd lost 6lb in the previous 5 weeks.

The reason for coming to 5:2 is to learn a new way of eating I can work into my life which is sustainable long term. I want to have an occasional treat without the associated guilt!

Fingers crossed this works for me!

It's catching and it's free!
