    Well I've managed nearly 11 weeks and by Friday will hope to have reached 3 1/2 stones, but I've had my fill of water, lettuce and pickled cabbage!

    So, fingers crossed I can embrace food again with a little less gusto and eat more sensibly. I'm going to 5:2 which I have done before and managed to maintain my weight, hopefully by eating less on the 5 days I will keep losing, little by little.

    I managed to keep my weight off for a year last time and blamed ill health as the reason for putting the weight back on, in reality it was me being a pig, gradually over eating and letting go. Never again!

    Thank you.

    Be better if I could rotate the pics, the originals are the right way round!

    Yes, I have some products to use up for my lunches.

    That's a fabulous achievement, well done. I'm only just starting out so it's stories like yours that make me realise that it's possible. Congratulations and I wish you well. X

    Well done lee. Nice to see someone who started at the same time who made it to the end :) You look so different. I've only got a few more weeks left myself. Good luck with maintenance. Xx

    Excellent. Please let us know how you get on on 5:2. I'm still at a loss about where I'm going to go from here. If someone had told me back in January I'd be this size by now i'd have been delighted but now I don't know what to do. I can't be trusted on 5:2. I wouldn't do the down days.

    Have to agree the thought of being able to eat but having to keep control is daunting.

    I have 5:2'd before and can manage the 2 days, need to keep track on the 5 days and am sure I will be able to maintain at least.

    Good luck x

    I just said that was it for me. To be honest other than picking up food packs every 2 weeks and the odd text message that was it. I had more help from the forum!

    Well I've eaten food and had some real ale.

    Everything tastes fantastic and I am trying to slow down my eating pace and savour everything I eat. Sticking to my calorie goal so far.

    Loads higher. Had 1700 today, out for meals tomorrow and Sunday but have already chosen my healthier option choices.

    Going to be 5:2ing with Monday and Wednesday as my strict days, aiming for 2300 calories the other days which means I should lose around 1lb a week. I will be happy to maintain but any losses will be embraced!

    My calories are high due to me still being heavy I think!

    Please come back and let us know how your getting on with it. What's working or maybe what's not. It's all a learning curve. X

    1st week over and I've put 1.4lbs on.

    Happy with that, hoping not to put anymore on this week as my body should be used to carbs again now.

    5:2 was OK on Monday but really tough yesterday, had a really early night. Looking forward to my sardines on toast for breakfast now.
