I just want to log on here and record where Im at. I can see by my signature I first logged on in 2009 at 14 stone 7lbs. WOW that was such a difficult sad time in my life. I dint reach my goal then or a few years later either but I have now. Im 10 stone 8 today. The last few years I have been mainly using the 5:2 method turning to the 20:4 the last 6 weeks which has let me let go of 5lbs but have seen massive non scale victories including high energy, positive mood, clear skin, appetite control, balanced hormones and general happiness. I am hoping that I have found a way to live now that suits me and my appetite and hope I can reset my metabolism to heal as I was living on a very restrictive 1200 calories or less a day before now just to maintain. Fasting resets the metabolism if you do it long enough, people suggest a year so Im aiming for that as I do not want to be counting calories for the rest of my life. Fasting also creates something called autophagy which is really exciting as far as my health goes. I don't restrict any foods now at all and its completely liberating. I restrict the time I eat for though and this has worked wonders for me. I just wish I had heard of this way of life soon. Better late than never though eh. I would also like to set a new goal for myself at 9 stone 12lbs and use this thread/website to record my journey a little. If you haven't heard of delay don't deny - check it out !

Grace! I look forward to following your journey. I'm posting in the member diary section. I've found the Obesity Code by Dr Jason Fung and videos by him, dietdoctor and Dr Berg useful. The science re resetting metabolism is really exciting.

I've shed 9 stone and regained 8 stone, shed 40lbs last year on a vlcd and regained it.

Congratulations on your progress. Good luck with the next bit.

Another quick update, sitting at 10 stone 5 which is a loss of 3lbs since July, Its now February. This might sound like slow progress but its probably the first winter I haven't gained weight or been in a battle with myself over food. More importantly although there has been little movement on the scales I have dropped a dress size and am now buying a size 10. My body recomposition is far more important that the number on the scale, (a phrase I though I would never say.) Im still doing 20/4 and not restricting what I eat at all in that window and I am still experiencing all the Non Scale victories listed above such as high energy, clear skin, balanced mood etc. It is also the first winter I have not felt totally overwhelmed with feelings of season affective disorder. Ive noticed Im a little less energetic but haven't slumped into a very low mood, which would normally be the case at this time of year. Im going to continue with this way of life as i don't think I have ever felt so balanced, strong and happy with my body and how I look.
