Back to the real world. I had a wonderful 4 week European trip! Amazing and lots of food. My first night home I had gained 9 lbs! But it turned out to be a lot of water retention. My legs were swelled up from 24 hours of flights. So by the next morning I had dropped 5 lbs! wow and my legs looked normal. My stomachs been funny this first week home and haven't felt up to fasting/repairing. So today is my first fast in about 6 weeks. I want to lose those 5 lbs and get back to where I was before vacation.

Also, now that it is summer time, my 13 year old daughter is home and might notice that I'm not eating. I don't want her to worry about weight, so I'm trying to hide this diet from her.

I'm in the dumps because my vacation is over and I need to distract myself. Plan to go watch the hubby in a Kitesurfing race for cancer today. Just feeling sorry for myself. Get over it already!

Here's to a successful repair day.

Weight: 8st 10.5

Still no further weight loss but thats ok. Today was a mess. I woke up at 6am with the dogs in pain from neutering and held off til 12pm to eat. Funny - no crashing today and I'd say that was due to the lack of carbs the day before or emphasis on protein. Carbs are the devil for me I've decided

12pm: 2 boiled eggs & small amount of cashews (170 cals)
4pm: crackers & goats cheese (300 cals)
7pm: chinese takeaway - fried rice, prawn crackers, shredded crispy chilli beef

I'd say it was about 2500 cals althogether witht that fatty takeaway. Feel horribly bloats and know I will pay on the scales. I hope I don't crash again. From tomorrow- the carbs are gone except those that come naturally from veggies etc

The day is a 2/10 as no loss, ate crap and felt crap quite a lot.

Started 5:2 yesterday with a Fast day and was surprised how easy I found it! Maybe it is all that positive energy spurring me on!?
Had a black coffee mid morning; half a carton of very yummy pea & asparagus soup for lunch which I took my time to eat so I could savour every mouthful. Dinner was beans on toast on granary bread which I also truly enjoyed.
Wednesday is a good fast day as I take my daughter swimming straight after work so keep myself busy!
I really felt quite smug feeling that rumbly tumbly (to quote Pooh bear) and this morning my tummy felt ridiculously flatter - probably psychological, but still it felt good!
Did a 2nd fast day today and have even managed a swim.
I don't plan to do consecutive days from next week as Monday and Wednesday will work best for me, but this week it was the only way as I have quite a social weekend coming up...
Friends coming for dinner tomorrow night so hope to not go overboard!
Looking forward to weighing in on Monday, so fingers crossed!...

Ate almost 2000 calories yesterday and felt so full and bloated at the end of the day, however woke this morning to find that I hadn't put on any weight.

I've had two weeks break but my weight went up to 129.8 on Saturday, now two days later it's 127.8. It was such a rush this morning to wake and realise I had done it, I had completed a 40 hour fast. I'm stoked! I want to ride this feeling all day. Can't wait to do my next one. I have a watermelon waiting for me in the fridge for when true hunger sets in, but for now, onwards and downwards ( on the scale).
