I completed my first fast day today & found it alarmingly easy. I decided to fast on Tuesday & Thursday as I'd be busy at work & hopefully wouldn't be bothered about food too much. That was certainly the case today, no time to think of eating! Managed to drink lots of water or black coffee though.

Dinner was pretty boring, just steamed veg with some cheese sauce. Total lack of planning. I must make more effort with the planning or I'll be in trouble. I rarely plan dinner until just before & I don't think I can afford to do that now.

I was ready an article today by someone who isn't a 5:2 fan. he wrote about starving yourself to the point of near collapse & not being able to concentrate. I wonder if he has actually tried it as I didn't feel like that at all.

I'm pleased with my first day & I'd like each fast day to be as easy.

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....
