Before the 17th September 2012 I looked like this. Waist 108 cm, hips 110 cm
My vanity has prevented me from giving my real weight, (I had no scales) I logged 95kg, the last known weight I choose to remember. I have logged 107kg, but I did lose some of that - I swear it's true...
Thank goodness the stripes made me look thin - O dear!

After 7 months I look like this (21st April 2013) Waist 96 cm, hips 105 cm

I have been doing 5:2 for 5 days now and I have just found this site. I cannot believe that you can keep track of everything and blog all in one place. Amazing.

I have lost 1.9kg in total so far and am loving the program/way of life. Probably like a lot of people, I have tried a million diets and of recent years, nothing including gym work outs and low calorie meals have been able to shift even a kilo. If anything I was putting on even though I was doing everything they tell you works.

A friend and her husband came over last weekend and they had been doing 5:2 for 2.5 weeks. She had lost 2.8kg and he 8kg. Absolutely amazing, I was inspired by their progress. They told me the name of the book and from there I was glued for a couple of hours, reading. Fully determined, I started the very next day.

I weighed myself this morning on new scales and found that my actual weight was 83.3kg. More than I thought. Makes me more determined than ever to make this work. Thanks to Vicki for the link...

For anyone with a daft sense of humour I thought I'd start Nog's Blogs, never considered doing one before so no idea what I'm doing, but that's never stopped me in life, so here we go ....... a barmy way of looking at life without going 'off topic' or 'hi-jacking' someone elses thread :like:

Read these blogs at your own risk :confused:

Seeing as we've started to discuss Mankinis and there was a request for a picky of yours truly wearing said item :bugeyes: here we go ....... :heart:

Don't splutter on your cornflakes missus ...

Day 101, Fast 33 today. A third of this WOE fasting.....and one hundred days completed. Not a bad batting average overall in three months. Over that time I have tried this WOE every which way (5:2, 4:3, 6:1, 16:8, ADF, 24 hour zero fast, 36 hr liquid fast). I don't have a favourite, what I do is select a way that suits my mood and lifestyle at the time. It's time to record what I have learned as I feel I need a good kick in the butt for the next phase:

I started this for health reasons. I won't know the full results of that until I have my medical next week. However my BP is back in the normal range and my BMI is now healthy rather than overweight. :grin:

The different ways of fasting are a good set of tools to have depending on what is going on in your life. It keeps it fresh and novel to keep mixing it up. :grin: ...
