    At goal & now beyond... 5:2 officially rocks!

    After losing 7st 6lbs cal counting I'm struggling to keep it off & am currently a stone higher than my lowest & just can't get back down to my lowest weight. I've decided to try 5:2 to shift this stone. My mum has been very successful in her 70s to lose a stone she's been trying to shift for years & looks amazing so I'm gonna try & follow her lead.

    I'm going to fast Mondays & Wednesdays. Did try briefly this time last year but hubby says I was horrible to live with but I'm at work Monday til 8pm & he works away Wednesday night.

    My fast days will be 500cals & my non fast days will be around 1500, tdee is over 1900 but I daren't eat that many.

    So onwards & downwards

    First non fast day & I aimed for 1500, went over very slightly but I have been hungry. I just worked out my daily allowance the way KB recommended & my up days should be 1480 so I was about right. I got on the scales this morning (I know but I'm a serial weigher I've weighed just about every day for about two & a half years) & it showed me being 2lb down which I'm sure won't still be there tomorrow but official weigh in is Thursday after my second down day. Was chatting to my mum today who has been 5:2ing about a year (she got to goal then did one fast a week to keep it off) & she said how this is the only diet where she's felt in control & at 72 & lots of diets that's a positive sign for me to think this can work because the thought of having to eat 1200 cals a day for the rest of my life to stay at target weight is so depressing!

    So fast day 2 tomorrow which may be harder as I have a day off but have plenty of housework to do to keep me busy!!!!

    Woohoo scales this morning 12:3:2 which has made me realise I can fast today even though I'm home alone. That's over 4lb lost although I'd gained 6lb in 10 days & it always comes off quickly if I gained it quickly

    Mwah x Dd going fine I'm hungry but not starving although realised taking a friend to the cash & carry was a step too far, nearly skidded on my dribble lol! Food for today 1300 - tin ww chicken potato & leek soup - 97 cals 1615 - 250g grilled mushrooms - 40 cals 1800 - 2 coley portions, cauli, broccoli, carrot & 6 sprouts - 276 cals So a very low day at 413 cals so may have something to nibble on about 8ish if I'm hungry.

    Oh believe me I did, I think what I did could be described as inhaling it not eating it. Rest of day all planned with my soup & a pitta bread for lunch & spag bol for tea.

    Had a good up day, as planned but with the addition of a bag of snackajacks when on my way home from the shops after work, I got the munchies. Am out for a meal with a friend tomorrow lunchtime so may have an up up day tomorrow & may have my tdee & am even considering a fast on Saturday depending on what the hubby & son want to do when I finish work at 115. Maybe sounds daft but I'm scared of 4 up days before I have another down. Wish I wasn't out tomorrow to be honest but where we are going there's no way I can fast
