@JakkiJ: Sure, just take a note of your measurements and weight now and report on the changes at next month's weigh-in!
I started 5:2 at the beginning of September, no weight loss for the first two weeks so started 4:3 and 16:8. It's working really well now and I have gone down from 67K to 64.4K in six weeks.I have lost 4 inches from my tummy (measured around the navel) and an inch from my waist & bust. Amazing stuff! This diet works. :victory:
hi everyone!

not sure if I am too late to report?
started back in July, at 9 st 13 lbs, weighed myself this morning and I am now 9 5 lbs, so well pleased! very slow but that's ok with me!!

I don't take measurements but I do know I have lost in inches as trousers feel much much looser lol, got to get a tape measure lol!!

yes this WOL does work and I never ever feel like I am on a diet :-)
Hi Caro, i didnt submit any weigh in September as only joined 3 Sept and i thought it was only for those doing Progress Tracking
I can only tell you i started 5:2 on 21 Aug....seemed to put on,take off a pound or two for several weeks...didnt really start losing properly til week beginning 27 Sept,since when have lost 15 doubt a lot of that was water,but nevertheless very pleased.
Not sure if this data is for you,is it just those who Progress Track on here? :?:
PS ..Got weighed today,last day of October,and have lost another a total of 16 lb! Cant wait to lose two more pound which will take me down into a lower stone number!
:grin: :clap: :clap: :lol:
That's a fantastic loss CandiceMarie! Keep up the good work and by the time we meet up next month there'll be even less of you! x

Vary fast days but usually monday and thursday. Really pleased with results so far,but intend to start taking vit/min supplement and evening primrose oil as I want to ensure that I am not missing out on anything important. Main side effects are increased problems with temperature regulation and sleep, but as these are symptoms of ME I am prepared to endure them as it will obviously be easier to move a lighter body around.
Hi Chingola, i too am a sufferer of this horrible disease,but these days i would say i am between 60- 75% recovered,compared to how ill i was and how limited in what i could do some years ago
Sorry you have had increased probs with poor sleeping patterns havent worsened in the ten weeks ive been on this
I have never had a prob with temp regulation,so thats one symptom i can be grateful not to have!
I agree being lighter has got to help us!
I found reflexology helped me a great deal..i had weekly sessions for about two years and over that time,most of the joint pains and muscle sensitivity disappeared and mostly have never returned,so i wd highly recommend anyone with ME/ fibromyalgia to try it
Take care and happy fast and repairing!
