10 Week Challenge!
Hello everyone :) another serial dieter here! Giving 5:2 a go from tomorrow as am finding too hard to stick to doing the same thing every day.
I tried to do this before and didn't make it through my first fast so hoping to be more successful this time!
I've got 10 weeks to go before I go on holiday to America and would like to lose 7-10 pounds by then and get back into size 10 skinny jeans!
Also need to beat my problems with binge eating and obsessive dieting :sigh:
So as well as being strict on my fast days my goals will be to make mainly healthy choices on my 'normal' days, avoid bingeing and roughly stick to my TDEE of 1700 calories though I won't be counting them properly for now.
Plan for tomorrow:
WW tomato soup and alpen bar
Small tin spaghetti hoops
Total 501 calories
Wish me luck!:cool:
Good luck! Drink lots of water and you'll be fine. First ones the hardest :)
Starting weight 10 stone 5.8
Goal weight 9 stone 9
10.8 pounds to go in 10 weeks!
First fast day almost over and I've dug out the cookery books I've never allowed myself to use because I have been on a diet for at least 10 years. This is the first time I'll be able to eat normally guilt-free, which is pretty amazing.
Having said that I'm not going to go mad and am going to plan my meals in advance.
Pretty hungry, looking forward to bed time though it's not been too bad so far...
Feels like Christmas Eve waiting for morning so I can have a nice bowl of fruit and fibre mmm! How sad :-P
Fasted weight 10 stone 4. Am using the true weight app which says my true weight is now 10 stone 5.5 :)
Have enjoyed my food today and kept a rough track to make sure I don't go over 1700.
2 hours of stinky revision to do tonight :'-(
Well done! Why is the weight on your app different to your actual weight? are you sticking with set days for fast days or just going with the flow?
I think it takes an average so that you don't get upset with fluctuations - someone on 5:2 recommended it so thought I'd give it a go as I'm an obsessive weigher...

Just watched the documentary and it has given me more motivation to carry on :)
I think Im going to go with Mondays and thursdays too, bit of a detox around my boozy weekends lol!
Caught a cold but dosed up on painkillers and ready for my second fast today.
Planning on getting through the workday on a slim a soup and an options hot Choc and coming home to a fishcake and maybe a few beans...
Had lovely indulgent 3 course meal last night made by the bf, I nearly told him about 5:2 last night but I resisted!
This was last nights pudding - amaretto and pecan semifreddo, you'd think it was from a restaurant! And there's about 4 more portions in the freezer! Thanks god for 5:2 :-)
Someone brought biccies in today and I nearly sacrificed my beans for one but thank god I resisted! Got through on one slim a soup, one hot chocolate and a beechams hot drink. Bit lightheaded but not hungry. Was a lot easier than fast number 1. Let's hope they carry on getting easier!
Fasted weight 10 stone 4.2 so up from last time...but my true weight on the app is down to 10 stone 5.1 so 0.7 pounds lost so far...can live with that :)
Lots of exam cram to do tonight before my resit tomorrow :'-(
Scoffed a sharing bag of minstrels and too many biccies today...tried to limit damage by going for an hours power walk burning 320 cals and will be doing a fair bit of walking tomorrow...albeit round the shops ;-)
Felt really Ill by the end of yesterday's fast so think I had a treat day to make up for it...but tomorrow I will make healthy choices :) booked in for a hair appointment tomorrow after my exam and doing my nails tonight so I feel better about myself. Wish it wasn't so hot but cest la vie!
