This forum helped so much in the early days, when fast days were hard. Now they are just a part of life. I'd prefer it if I could eat whatever I fancied on every day of the week, but doing this 2 days a week is something that works for me, at least at the moment.
Losing the weight has been great. I've taken up (slow) running, which I wouldn't have done before as too much strain on joints, and of course that has helped keep the weight off.
Clothes shopping is infinitely easier. If you told me to go and buy a dress to wear out tonight, I could go and get one this afternoon. Before, it would take alot more hunting to find something flattering. I have two bikinis now! And it must be said a slightly wrinkly tummy, but hey....
But most of all, I just feel better. It looks like me in the mirror. I can nip upstairs, and walk quickly up hills, and bend over.
So if you are in the early stages of this way of eating, I'd encourage you to keep going!
