    Hi, I am new to the 5:2 diet. Been really struggling to lose the baby weight for over a year now. Really need to lose 3 stone.

    I have started my fast day today will update with my diary later. Weighed in today as 88kg.

    So i have 33 calories left, any ideas what I could use these on? I have also done 20 mins jogging on the treadmill burning 234 calories. I usually tru to get to 30 mins but just didn't have the energy to get that far today.

    I was going to do kettlebells but felt really unwell in the evening and the class had also been cancelled.

    todays diary is my fast day which i have had to edit as we went to my husbabds parents for a bbq so i had one crumpet and a smear of chocolate spread for breakfast, nothing for lunch and a small 40g piece of steak with salad and a slice of Mediterranean bread. I believe this all comes in at roughly 500 calories.

    Hi and welcome! I just wanted to post that for some reason your tables don't appear to display properly on my phone using the minimins app. I wondered if other people were struggling with this as well? It's rare that I use a computer at home these days, but when I did log on I could see them fine!

    Hi thanks for letting me know. I generally copy and paste my diary from my fitness pal. Maybe it would be easier if i just type it from now on.

    Right so I failed all this miserably last year so now I am back to give it another try. I'm now on my second week of fasting, although I tend to go a little over the 500 calories by a little. Weighing in Saturday. Going to work in stones this time top as I'm weighing in with my neighbor. My last fast days were Saturday and Sunday and my 2nd week fast day is Thursday and Saturday. I will update what I had later as I've got to sort my little girls dinner out now.

    Well done Tipsy. The first week is exciting isn't it? I lost 6 lb this week. I don't expect the same next though! I'm fasting Monday and Wednesday's. I've just asked to join the Easter challenge but it's so quiet, hardly inspiring. :-/

    Well done! Did you do two back to back fasts on 3rd and 4th? Were they hard? Is that what you usually do?

    Tispy Well-Known Member

    The first week it's exciting! I want really expecting much of a loss. My fast days will usually be Thursday and Saturday but I like the fact I can change the days if needed. I've had a look at the Easter challenge but it does seem a very quite group.

    Yeah I did them back to back those days. I mainly did it to kick start myself. I did struggle as I never managed to stay exactly on 500 calories but it does seem to be working ok when I go over a little.

    Lunch: Tesco hoisin duck sushi taster pack 108 calories

    Dinner: Bisto cottage pie ready meal 318 calories

    426 calories in total. I may edit later if I decide to eat anything else

    So I ended Saturday at 495 calories. I had 3 cracker breads and 5g reduced fat hummus. Today has been a normal eating day but I feel like I have over eaten and feel bloated and uncomfortable. I think I may do a fast day tomorrow to make up for today

    I am doing a fast day again today as I felt so horribly bloated after over indulging yesterday. So this week is more of a 4:3 week as I will be keeping my original fast days of Thursday and Saturday. So far today I have had just 2 glasses of water and also drinking a coke zero now as i helps curb my appetite. I want to see how long I can go for before eating a meal so I may have something for lunch or a may just do one meal today. Will see how I go :)

    So today has gone well. I had a soup and some crackers at 2pm totaling 114 calories and I ate some leftover home made balti that I portioned out to be roughly 400 calories. Today has gone well although i feel very peckish this evening. Going to have some water to see if that helps
