This is it!
I'm so going to do this! Been struggling to lose 10lb-14lbs and although it doesn't sound a lot it's getting me down! I'm fed up with my jeans feeling tight and I refuse to go up another size. I just want to be a comfortable size 10 to 12 in time for summer. So I've been trying to eat a paleo/clean eating lifestyle but had the tendency to fall off the wagon so I hope that by combining this with fasting I will a) speed up my weight loss and b) try to get out of the binging/guilt trip.
I'm going to fast Monday, Wednesday and Friday and try to eat clean the other days and keep my calories to 2000 but I'm not going to beat myself up if I eat the odd "bad" food and I'm not going to let it signal a binge. I'm also going to weigh in daily but I'll only put my weekly weight and measurements on here.
So stats are:
Chest: 38 in
Wish me luck!
Hi & welcome!!
My mum only had a stone to lose & she did it fasting although she did 5;2 & she looks amazing & at 72 is comfortably a 12 again x
Thanks Lexie, that's good to hear! I just saw in the paper that George osbourne has lost 20lbs on the 5:2 diet!
Well today has been good, went gym this morning and burnt 600cals then had bbq with family, weighed and measured everything and came in at 498. Feeling a little bit headachy but good!!
Have been going through my hairy bikers diet book and planned out the weeks meals, feeling positive :)
The HD books are amazing, the second one is on offer at £4.99 in the book people if you don't have it x
Ooh thanks I might have to get that!
First one is still my favourite though x

Smoked salmon and scrambled eggs for breakfast, Brie, chilli chutney and salad pitta for lunch and a banana. Hairy bikers one pot spicy pork and rice for dinner with tortilla chips and ice cream for pus. Also snacked on an apple and a Jaffa cake bar. 1720cals total for day.
Went gym with hubby this morning and did a weights session.
Feeling achy from the gym today but feel good I haven't gorged, tried on some summer clothes today which were not nearly as snug as I remember so that made me happy! Ooh and got my second assignment back today (I'm doing a degree with open uni) and got 86% so feeling. Very happy!!!
Sounds like a great day. I also did my degree through the OU - hard work but totally worth it!
I have both the Hairy Bikers books, but the daft thing is I have never really looked at them, but thanks for the reminder :)
Yeah have a look through them, I'm pretty sure all of the receipes are under 500 cals and generous portions too!
What degree did you do dietninja? I'm doing aa100 at the mo hoping to get a BA in english literature and language.
Life sciences. I enjoyed it but such hard work!

Fast day today, had black coffee then lunch of two fried eggs in top if tomatoes, broccoli and red onion on a slice of red onion was yummy!
This evening had stir fried veg with zero noodles and chilli powder, very strange texture but did the job!
Had a lecture tonight so going to be late to bed and already dreaming about my breakfast think I'm going to have avocado, scrambled eggs and olives... Sounds weird but I love it! Ooh or maybe chorizo scrambled eggs decisions decisions!!!
Well done on your fast!
Ooh I love chorizo! Also on an up day and may have to get some in :)
