Hi – I did the 5:2 about 4 years ago and it was amazing for me, I went down to what I weighed when I was 18 .. I’m a middle aged mum now! I felt great and fit and very proud of myself. I maintained my weight mostly for around 2 years but now all the weight has gone back on again and most of my clothes don’t fit! I’m intending to start tomorrow- but am worried that I won’t be as successful as before. I just thought I’d see if anyone else had experienced this and any tips most welcome. I think my main problem is that when I did it before I was walking my daughter to school everyday and mostly up hill and now I don’t walk her to school so hard to get exercise in everyday.

DancingMum, you can do it! You know you can. As for exercise: park at the back of the lot; take the stairs; instead of eating lunch, go for a walk [eat an apple if you must]. Keep us posted with your successes and questions.

I started the fast diet earlier this year but then had a crazy summer which involved a lot of moving around and I didn’t keep it up. Now I’ve gained the half stone I’d lost and I really want to get back on track! So I’m also starting again 🙂 I need to lose a stone and a half for my health, but if I could lose 2 stone I’d feel amazing! Hoping the community on here will be motivation for me 👍🏻 X
Get back on the horse, penelope, and do the Fasting. It works and we are here for you.
DancingMum, how is the Fast going?
We are Fasting today: Curried Tomato Omelette with banana for breakfast. Fish Cakes for dinner, with 2 vegetable sides.
Hi Penelope- I’ve realised that my life has changed quite a bit over this last year, Mum has been unwell so driving a lot to see/help her, eldest leaving home to go to uni, and I think I need to really re-boot somehow and fit the exercise in – I have to confess I’ve only done the fasting half heartedly, quite hard at Christmas… but I did it before and resisted snacks, wine etc and kept it to weekends to have a treat. It’s willpower that I need:) I like the sound of curried omelette fasting _me .. it’s about being organised and having good recipes to fall back on – thanks for your encouragement 😊
