I've Started!

by Little Boo on 12 Feb 2014, 07:18

It's been 12 days since I commenced on the 5:2 diet. I feel quite positive at the moment but There is a long way to go and I am hoping that this blog will help keep me motivated.
My official 'weigh in' is done on a Saturday morning on my Wii. But I must admit to a sneaky mounting of the bathroom scales in between times, although I do try to resist! :razz:

The first week I lost 5lb and I didn't find it difficult. My non fasting days are usually around 17-1800 cals and I try not to think about it too much. The only thing I have given up, is alcohol, we used to have wine every day while I prepared the dinner . My husband still indulges, but on a Tuesday and Thursday; my fasting days, he does as I do and this includes only having 500 'Ish cals.

I purposely chose Tuesday and Thursday as my fasting days because I am usually busy playing golf.

So far my fasting day foods have included the Hairy Dieters Pasty, Frittata, Home made soups, salmon, roast Mediterranean veg (using fry light), rice cakes and a pepper steak with lots of salad. :grin:

That's me for now, I don't want to bore to much on my first dalliance with this blog!

On going dieter, but started 5:2 1st Feb 2014.
Won't make my Solstice Challenge #45 - target 11st 12lb / 75.5kg. Too distracted!
