Short History: F/47/UK Lifelong weight issues. Heaviest weight 230, lightest 150 (I'm 5ft 8) I went from 230 to 150 in 2010. I weighed 150 for less than 1 day on my wedding day (so that was cool!) then a 5 day honeymoon in New York showed me gaining 12 pounds.

For the past 6 years I've been battling to hang on to the weight loss with moderate success. I immediately put about 10 pounds on, then slowly crept up until the start of this year saw me at 190. I dieted down to 181 when I started to see the signs of things slipping out of my control I decided to give the 5:2 diet another go. I had tried it briefly in 2013, and had moderate success, but given up too soon.

I've steadily been losing fat since then. I hit 168 2 weeks ago which for me is a weight I haven't seen for about 4 years, so in itself that's a huge success.

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....
