It's the great thing about this way of life (it's not a diet) is the discovery that I can be hungry and that's fine. In fact it's better then fine, because I operate much better at work when I am not stuffed. I am thinking that I might try to eat what I used to eat as an experiment. If anyone's looking at this have you tried it?
She also advised using a walking stick when it's painful. A walking stick!! Need to avoid stairs too. A walking stick!! Physio gave me an exercise to help strengthen my quads but my goodness is it painful - eye wateringly so. She said if I don't, eventually my knee will start giving way which will lead to falls & broken bits & pieces.
Consequently this has affected my exercising. Getting into the gym is now a challenge. Bearing in mind the physical terrorist advised to avoid stairs where possible, I need to go up 2 flights to get to gym reception, go down 2 flights to changing rooms, back up 2 flights to the gym room, down 2 flights...
started the 5:2 back in mid jan. So far have lost just over 9 kgs and about 3 inches off waistline-most impressive thing though is a remarkable drop in cholesterol. 7.0 before the diet and now 5.6 in 10 weeks. Really happy with that-so going from borderline needing medication to more or less normal (for Uk).I shall continue and try and get it below 4.0. progress may be slower though as the weight loss slows down?
Tomorrow morning I do the long drive home and I will be fasting. I managed it on Wednesday so know I can do it tomorrow. Bring it on as they say.
