As of today, I'm pretty much at the weight I started the challenge at which I'm not thrilled about of course, but I'm ok with. A) it is certainly better than having gained and B) I think I'm learning what I need to do and am working towards a healthy WOE that will work for me. I will do one final check in on Monday since that's my official WI day.

Thanks so much @Pilchards for running this and I will happily join in the next one, if someone is willing to take it on!
I've lost 6lb all of which since xmas but about 4 latterly. Will go for something more difficult next time thanks for running yen challenge .
Thanks for hosting the Easter challenge

My goal was about research not weight loss but managed to lose 2kg over the time.. Not eating nearly as much as i used to till the easter hot cross buns arrived.. but we waiting till just 2 weeks ago.. anyway.. last packet bought today.
I am drinking so much more water these days. Just tap water chilled.. At least 1.5 litres a day.. compared with 1/2 a litre before. i think it helps And I havent drunk wine or cider for 6 weeks.

And my 5 day vegetarianism is really helping too. More plant based food, less red meat, chicken and fish. It must be all contributing

re research got some good knowledge in my head.. lates is this detailed study http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4250148/
I've completely failed this one. Returned from holiday 11st 5.5, weight today 11st 5.5. Thank you for running it @Pilchards I know things would have been even worse without it! I'm definitely far from happy at this weight - clothes I was wearing very happily just weeks ago now feel tight & make me look like a sack of potatoes. Will re-start 5/2 with renewed optimism on Tuesday next week. Happy Easter all.
Here are my results
weight: 56.5 kg
lost total during challenge: 6.8 kg
BMI now : 22.07

Julia aka Pilchards.
I failed :( We ended up having a lovely evening with neighbours on the Thursday night and that set off a weekend of eating and drinking, incl celebrating my birthday. The scales weren't kind this morning, and I've got another work lunch planned for today...
The relatively new pants are tight which will be my greatest incentive for getting back to where I'd like to be (at least 2 kg lighter and a BMI in the low 21s). I won't fill in my tracker till Friday, and will continue to fill this in every Friday. I'm worried that menopause won't make it any easier...
I feel your pain @Wmr309 - menopause makes it doubly hard to lose the weight. I think we sometimes need to shake our systems up a bit and take them by surprise. I have just followed a vegan regime for the Lenten period and it has made a big difference to my weight. Thought it might be something you could try. Juliana Rivers has a great Facebook group called the 5 day vegetarian which has lots of good ideas. We do lots of entertaining both at home and in restaurants and I actually haven't found it too hard. Are you going to join up for @ADFnFuel's next challenge?
Sorry to have been absent lately. After my initial loss my weight has stayed the same. However I did stay off the refined sugar for the whole of lent. Pretty proud of that. I will now look at the next challenge and try to be more focused.

Not sure what I will do next. I feel I've shaken up my system quite a bit lately by eating everything and in much larger quantities than I've done for a while. Just back from my work lunch and the (hot) chips I ate are causing me belly pain. I'm not coeliac but have definitely developed an intolerance to certain foods. I'm going to do more menu planning over the next month in order to feel more nourished and not wanting snacks in between. I'll have more vegetarian meals than vegan but I like eggs and cheese too much to give them up. Perhaps I should stop drinking alcohol during the week (on top of the non-alcoholic fasting days). I only glanced at the ADFnFuel challenge proposal but didn't give it too much thought yet. Thanks for your suggestions @Pilchards
