In a few days it will be a month since I started the 5:2 way of eating. I have shed 5.7 kg, which I believe is pretty close to a stone - I like the image that evokes, dropping stones by the wayside on my road to a healthier, much lighter me! My waist circumference is 5 cm less than when I started, and I can definitely feel the difference in my clothes. I have also noticed how much more comfortable I am in my weekly yoga class!

I have found it delightfully easy to adjust to this new way of eating. Had some headaches when I first started but now I feel just fantastic and have a lot more energy. On fast days I skip breakfast and lunch and usually have the same dinner as the rest of the family, so it's minimum fuss. On feed days I eat pretty much what I like, including the odd chocolate and cake (in reasonable amounts though).

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 ...
