Monday was our first light day and it went really well! Thursday will be our second light day and we feel ready. I am lucky to have a partner doing this plan with me! For the most part, both my BF and I have struggled with our weight since our High School days.
I am 44 years old, turning 45 in May. My guy will be 50 at the end of the summer. I live in the Northeastern, USA. I am a 5 feet 4 inch female. I weigh 212 and would like to get down to 175 for now. Probably more if this works! For now, don't want to bite off more than I can chew. Honestly would like to get to the 199 mark in time for my birthday. My BF is 6 feet tall and is about 280 or so. The heaviest he has ever been. He is already down a few pounds by doing 5:2 and paying closer attention to what he is eating.
I bought the book and it arrived a few days ago. Still getting through it. Have been eating pretty healthy for the most part for the past five years. No soda, no red meat. Poultry and fish, meatless like beans, etc. lots of healthy grains, fruits and veggies.
But I do enjoy my pasta, pizza, Mexican food, Chinese take out, as well as a once a month burger or steak!
Had a pretty decent health scare in 2015. In the past five years I lost some weight, put some back. Down from my all time heaviest of 240. Ugh. Need to find something that works for life. Hoping this is it!
Looking forward to learning more about this WOE and getting to know some of you.
