Not being someone who shouts from the rooftops I feel, however, that I must share my joy at finally reaching my target weight this morning. I had hoped to make it by my birthday and did, JUST, as it is tomorrow (28th)
For anyone who might be interested, my statistics from starting 5:2 are below.
I add this in the hope that if anyone is struggling at the moment and need a little bit of encouragement then read on. A few times I was a bit downhearted due to poor weight loss and thought about packing it in but since joining this forum in February I have been encouraged by all their stories and achievements.
My challenge now is to ‘maintain. And not slip back to old habits. I plan to do 6:1 to see how that goes with the occasional 5:2 if my weight starts to creep up.
A special thank you to Michael and Mimi, who, without their inspired ideas, I am sure this would not have been possible.
Good luck everyone in reaching your own personal goals. Keep this wonderful support and enthusiasm going.
Started 5:2 on Tuesday 14 August. : 41 weeks = 78 fasts (one week off for Christmas and Easter!)
Weight – 15st 13lbs (101.16kg / 223lbs); BMI – 33.03; Waist – 38″ trousers; Cholesterol – 6.3; Blood Pressure – 149/120 Body fat = 27%
Reached target weight on Monday 27 May :
Weight – 11st 7lbs (73.03kg / 161lbs); BMI –23.84; Waist – 32″ trousers; Body fat = 19%; Cholesterol – 3.4; Blood Pressure – 117/79
Wow! Congratulations. I have more modest goals than you, and hope to live up to your example.

You rock! Great inspiration to read your stats. Thanks for sharing them!
Congratulations, a job well done.
Does anyone know, apart from weight loss, if you get similar health benefits/results in other diets.
