Ok! on to week 2! this is my third fast and I have just eaten my lunch of ham egg and goats cheese salad.

I hopped onto the scales this morning and at first was dissapointed as I had just lost 1lb - then I remembered I ate like a pig for 5 days and had beautiful home made fried chicken last night so its not all bad and a pound is ok. I thought as it was my first week I may lose more but that pound is more than I have lost in the 3 weeks previous as I had just hit a plateau

Salad with finely chopped olives, ham and goats cheese


Courgette pizza boats topped with olives, goats cheese mushrooms and red onions with spicy butternut squash wedges and salad


highlight - 40 - need chocolate and also having mega hunger pangs - hoping this will calm them down.

Total - 543 - averaging 1,600 - 1,800 calories on a feed day so not concerned about going slightly over today.

Went to my mums for the weekend, I didn't eat like a pig but I am definatley looking forward to my fast day today - which is weird I didn't think I would start looking forward to these days. somebody last night was surprised I was carrying on with 5:2 over Christmas but why wouldn't I? its flexible and it fits in.

couldn't weigh myself in boots today as the machine was out of order AGAIN!?! I did weigh myself at mum's and i'm 7lbs lighter than when I last weighed myself on her scales so its all good :) hopefully I can get to another boots at lunch time to get weighed.

* today is going well so far (3pm) I decided not to eat breakfast and had my lunch at 1.30 - I ate it slowly with a big glass of fizzy water to wash it down and I still feel nice and full.

* im sitting as over on my calories today but i'm not too concerned as I was under my 2k yesterday and plan to be so each day by aiming to eat 1,800 kcals a day.
