    So this is it, 2014 & I'm 32 & still overweight.
    I've tried it all but nothing has stuck, yoyo should be my middle name! It stops now. I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia last year which along with my PCOS goes some way to explain my state of mind (& body) these last few years. I find exercising regularly quite difficult due to the pain my body feels on a normal day but no excuses as yoga & meditation are slowly starting to help

    Just after Christmas I was chatting to my Dad about how my weight had started really upsetting me, I was 17st 9lb the heaviest I've ever been, I hate buying size 20 clothes :-( He had just read an article about intermittent fasting and was planning on doing it himself to shift a bit of Christmas weight. I looked into it and thought it sounded like a good plan for me too.
    So since January the 6th I've been sticking to 500cals on Mon, Wed & Thurs and eating smaller healthier portions on the other days. I refuse to call them feast days as my personality just doesn't suit that lol!!

    I use MFP to track my food & exercise, I love lists so counting cals appeals to me. Strange I know!

    Anyway 2 weeks down & I'm loving it & plan to keep it up so I thought to help my accountability I'd start my diary on here as I know how much it helps.

    So far I've lost 16lb & hoping that another lb or 2 have come off when I weigh in tomorrow.

    Fingers crossed!

    Just weighed in & another lb off, I'm happy with that! Clothes are feeling a bit looser too which is great :)
    Woke up feeling exhausted & achy so going to give my body a chance & rest a little this morning. Starting to learn how to deal with this Fibro now.

    Fast day today so food planned is
    Chicken & Leek Soup - 96
    Slow cooker Lemon Chicken & Cous Cous - 408 Black Coffee x 2 - 4 Total - 508

    The lemon chicken is last nights leftovers, delicious too! So no cooking today, very lazy.

    Ok today was a fail!
    Ended up helping out a friend, all day on no food with a fair bit of work meant I caved BUT while they had chicken, chips & gravy I did manage to resist & have a healthier roast chicken breast with potatoes. However these were mashed with butter & milk I'm guessing by the delicious taste!!

    Roughly 1,170 cals EEK!!

    Making tomorrow a less calorific day than planned to make up for it. Although I did do a fair amount of exercise today which should help. I hope!!

    Roll on tomorrow :)
