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...
5:2 seems to be agreeing with me. It suits my eating and it is lovely to skip breakfast and thus skip the pressing of the hungry button!
My OH, sister and daughters have all warned me not to lose too much more as become quite gaunt when I hit normal BMI, even the top end of it! I am holding my boobs to account for that though. They don't get much smaller in themselves and they must weigh a bit, but my back gets smaller.
I am new to this site, but been doing the 5:2 for three weeks, just embarking on my fourth week. I was really please and had lost 5lb however hopping on the scales this morning shows a gain of 5lb plus an extra 1pound!!! How can that be...I was so disappointed and I have done nothing different this last week. So I have moved my fast day to tomorrow when I am in a better frame of mind. I am so desperate to loose the weight and don't know where I am going wrong. I though I had cracked it but obviously not!!! please help......
So in consequence today I've only had 1000 cals as recommended by the super Carorees and tomorrow I shall stick with 1687, then Friday a proper fast day of 420 cals. Hoping this will get me into the 74kgs where I've not been for many a year.
