    Well I have tried every diet under the sun and failed at all of them. I can be great on diets but I am an emotional eater and when I am stressed or anxious or just had a really crap day I eat. I am hoping that by only having to fast 2 days of the week I wont feel as deprived as I would normally. I have read the book and read lots of threads on here and I feel really motivated.

    I will weigh in tomorrow morning.

    Thanks Carrie and Mandy x

    I have had 1 small banana at breakfast and a black coffee

    Lunch 1 tin of WW soup and 1 dry ryvita

    Tea was WW ready meal and 100 g raw mushrooms dry fried with garlic.

    I have had water and diet drinks too. It hasn't been as bad as I thought it would be but I have felt hungry. Mandy does it get easier as in you don't feel as hungry or do you just get used to being hungry ?

    You're doing really well. I think you stop analysing everything and just get on with it after the first week or so, you also find out what works best for you. I find I'm better going as long as I possibly can, I usually manage until about 3 and have ham or a yogurt, then eat a normalish meal at 7. My husband skips breakfast and splits his cals between lunch and tea.
    Promise yourself you'll give it a couple of weeks, then decide if it's for you.
    Keep up the good work and remember that you can have what you want tomorrow without feeling guilty :)

    Thank you Mandy I've just caved in and had a coffee with a splash of skimmed milk. I am a coffee addict and I've found it really hard to only have one black one this morning. I've got a really bad head and I suspect its with not having enough coffee today. Do you normally count anything on non fast days ? I am aiming to just be sensible and see how it goes I have done lots of diets and not counting feels weird. You've done really well Mandy .

    Doing great so far! Almond milk is great instead of milk as the unsweetened one has only 3cals per 25mls. Yummy! Great day so far! Xxx

    Almond milk is going on my shopping list, thanks for the tip Carrie :)
    I really miss tea, I try to save a few calories for milk but it doesn't go far!
    I use MFP and try to stay under 2000 calories per feast day on average.
    I'll be going to bed soon, I always have early nights on fast days. I'm always frozen too!
    You've done really well today x

    Hello everyone. I have been eating pretty well on my non fast days not over indulging at all. It technically should be a fast day today but we are taking the kids out tonight to a restaurant. ( my hubby promised them ) I am on a works night out tomorrow so I cant fast then ... looks like I will be having one fast day this week I will have to try better next week. However I have lost 2.5 lbs already :D

    I have ordered the fast recipe book of Amazon for some Fast day ideas . Have a good day all.
