I started the 5:2 diet last Monday weighing in at 12st6lb. Have tried every diet under the sun, you name it I've tried it. I've been 13st at my heaviest and 9st at my lightest (those were the days). After my first week of fasting I've lost 6lbs which I was extremely pleased about so was feeling quite slim in my size 14 trousers which I no longer have to tie a hair band round the buttons (please tell me I'm not the only one who does this). Unfortunately my trousers had other ideas as when I bent over to grab a file from the cabinet, I together with the rest of the office heard an almighty rip and now my ass is hanging out of my trousers (thank god that 1. I've got proper knickers on today not my usual thong and 2. I'm wearing a long top).
Enough is enough I will NOT spend another summer covering up my flabby bits and pretending that I'm happy the way I am whilst looking enviously at every thin girl that goes past and wishing that I had had the willpower to stick to a diet instead of munching my way through a packet of biscuits and telling myself I'll start again tomorrow.
If this doesn't give me the kick up the ass that I need I don't know what will.
I WILL BE THIN
