Oh @Fern - such good news that everyone has been able to help you see things a bit more clearly. I am so pleased!

The way I look at it, is that I pretty much have over 40 years of serious comfort eating to bring under control.....so that is not going to happen overnight. I have accepted that some days it will be easier....& others it will be flippin' hard! What I am of course holding out for is a gradual reduction in the hard days...plus an increase in the easier ones....

5:2 has been an absolute revelation to me. It has worked its magic slowly & surely. Once you overcome the fear of hunger...& come to realise that it's really not that bad....everything else falls into place.

Having this forum to come to has been an enormous support too. Just knowing you are never alone really helps. I do hope we can help you get back in the swing of things!

Very best of luck, Fern!
