I've lost another 1.3kg in the last week - and am so pleased as I thought it would start to slow a bit now. However, when I look back at my last week - although my feast days have been a bit out of control - my fast days have been good and I've upped my exercise levels considerably. My Charity Bike Ride is now less than 5 weeks away and I am doing some hard cycling sessions everyday so really my weight loss shouldn't be a surprise
I am a day later recording my stats this week as had to move the normal Monday fast day to Tuesday - as got guests.
Only 2.7kgs away from my first target weight and I really feel I can achieve this before I go on the charity ride - if I stick to the 5:2.
Its been an OK weekend, some snacking at work on Saturday and a yummy Saturday dinner of parsnip and shallot tart tatin (sounds strange I know but was delicious) and strawberry tart, both made by my hubby who always cooks on Saturdays.
Today also OK including my weekly mini-binge of two packs of McCoys crisps and a crunchie bar.
Crisps are my weakness. My achilles heel. I just can't get enough. I have had several days when I have eaten literally NOTHING else in a day. Just crisps at breakfast time, lunch time and dinner time. I can't count the number of times I've eaten a 6-pack, 10-pack or 12-pack in one go. Mt record was a jumbo 16-pack multi-pack eaten in one go. My binging on crisps started as a child and has haunted my my whole life. I decided to join Slimming World when, on the way back from a trip to the supermarket I'd eaten a whole 6-pack before I even got home, on the bus. And it wasn't the first time either. I was at a Slimming World...

Would like to do another one this week, but not possible so 16:8 all the way now until next Tuesday.
First time I have done a proper 5:2 for about a month so feeling happier about myself.
QA; starting with 5:2 Can I fast from 8pm to 8pm on my fast day?Either with 500 c or maybe without. Then on my feast day start with dinner at 8pm and roll over to my feast day the next day. I have read all blogs about times and fasting ;either fast day all day through bedtime or feast day through bed time. Is there an advantage to the 24 hr fast I propose cause you go through night and completely through next day till dinner at 8..
