Starting again

by siamsa on 14 Aug 2017, 07:30

I've not been on here for a couple of years, what's happened? Where is everyone?! I'm sure this site used to be bigger somehow..

Anyway the 5:2 was really good last time I tried it, I got down to 9 stone for my wedding as I'd hoped, but in the 3 years since then I've slowly crept up and up and I've been just over 10 stone for a few months now. I've religiously typed everything I eat into MFP for the last month, sticking to their restrictive suggestion of 1200 calories a day and I've put on another half lb.

I'm refusing to give in and buy new jeans, so here I am again. First target, to fit the jeans comfortably.....

So today is the first fast day in 2 years. I've got my coffee and I'll not eat again until dinner because if i eat anything I'll just want more! Wish me luck....

Yes, it is terribly dead here, especially lately. I think that people either just have all the information they need or have stopped this WOE. It is a shame. But stick around. It seems to go in waves. I think you'll get a better response, if you actually post on the forum and not just the blog. Also, we have a "Labor Day" challenge going on, that you'd still be welcome to join!

Thanks for the comment, cblasz.
Maybe this WOE is so successful that everyone's lost the weight and got on with their lives! I can hope :-)
I'll have a look around the forums, thank you for the tip!
