Well I survived my first fast! I felt so energised yesterday, and I slept amazingly well. There were points in the day that my tummy did rumble but I felt so proud of my self control and empowered to continue! I really think that planning what I was going to eat was beneficial. I am so thankful for the forum as everyones advice really helped! Looking forward to my next fast and the rest of my weightloss journey. Have chosen Mondays and Thursdays as my fast days and if anything crops up I will just adjust those :heart:

Weight 9st 7lbs

So yesterday was my second non fast day and it was easy to stick below by TDEE because now I am sick. My little boyis only getting over his sickness and I have gotten a nasty throat infection. This makes it hard to eat and I'm no too hungry anyway. I felt really awful yesterday. My fast day isn't til Monday at this point but I am limited to eating slithery slimy food as every feels like razor blades going down. I just tried to eat somne grapefruit but it stung me so badly that I couldn't. Obviuosly I'm not exercising either as my emp goes very high. So no exercise til next weekend to give myself a chance to recover. Also presume starving an infection is a good idea next week.

My day yesterday looked like this:

Lunch: Chicken wrap (500cals)
Dinner: Noodles (300 cals)
Snacks: 2 ice lollies & 2 squares of lindt (120 & 120)

Totals Cals 1040. I actually ate more than I thought. The noodles were very high considering the amount. I can only estimate the wrap as it...

I'm fat. Not big, heavy, chubby or jolly. Fat. FAT. Carrying too much weight, mostly around the middle. According to a popular newspaper I am going to keel over any minute now of a heart attack, breast cancer or something else equally unpleasant. I've dieted. Lots. Once I dieted down to 9 stone. I looked fabulous. For what felt like 10 minutes. Now I am middle aged and fat. I also have high cholesterol and a parent with diabetes. So I've decided to take the slow and steady path and after years of yo yo dieting try the 5:2 diet.

I weighed 14 stone 10 at my fattest. I lost 7lb of that on a standard diet at the start of the year (yes, yes, I was one of those people that started a new year diet, how terribly predictable). Then I fell off the diet fell onto the weight. Last weigh in (before today) was 14 stone 4lb. So on Feb 3rd I started the 5:2 diet. I fasted Monday (no breakfast, 200 cal salad for lunch, some fruit and a piece of fish for dinner). I went over the 500 cals...

I did my second fast day on Friday and it was much easier. It was a very busy day, I was away from home for over 12 hours including travelling time. I carried with me a small shaker with protein powder, to which I could have added water if hunger got too much, but it was not necessary. It was so liberating as other times I was always worrying about what to eat on that day, carrying food with me.
