I completed a half-hearted attempt at 5:2 back in 2013 when I was 14st 11lbs. I’m now 16st and 40 year old.
I’ve recently came off antidepressants which I think contributed to a stone weight gain in the past 6 months. I like to drink a good few beers on a weekend but have also maintained a decent level of fitness by running and playing football.
Aiming to get under 14 stone for the first time in 10 years and eventually get down to 13st.
I think by posting on here, it’ll make me more accountable whether anyone reads my posts or not. I’ll be posting updates on a Friday after weigh in with my first fast day coming up tomorrow.
Good luck, hopefully you’ll soon get back into the swing of it!

Weigh in this morning – 7lbs lost. Down to 15st 7lbs.
2 fast days around 500 cals with a 5 mile walk on the first one. I don’t eat anything until 5pm and don’t find it a problem at all. Rarely feel hungry.
My waist was 44 inches last week but will take this measurement on a monthly basis.
Overall feeling much better after a week and excited to lose this weight that wouldn’t shift.
My final target is 13st with a short term target of 14st.

Stayed the same at 15st 7lbs this week. Really struggled with my fast day on Monday as I was working from home but no bother on Thursday.
Had a bad weekend binge drinking / eating so I’m happy not to put weight on – still a 7lb loss over 2 weeks. Gonna put that behind me and carry on in a better fashion.
Jeans starting to feel looser today but won’t measure my waist until next month.
