In week 2: so happy!
I posted this at the very tail end of the long thread, so I thought I'd repost. I'm so glad to see a few folks a active here! And great work y'all!
I'm thrilled to be joining you folks. I'm one week in to a 5:2. I love fasting (always have!), and feeling great. I had a baby 7 months ago and can't shake the 25 extra pounds.
I plan to eat well most non-fast days, with occasional splurges. I have a terrible time finding time to exercise though. Do you think I will lose weight? Many folks imply that IF is only good for maintenance. I'll try to do some body weight strength work at least 2-3 times a week.
What do you folks think of doing 19/5 on top of the 5:2? I have to get the scale to move and it just won't, despite some real improvements in portion control! I know my set point is now 173 and my body will do anything to stay there.
Thanks in advance for your support.
Today, I'm feeling:
My goal used to be 150. I got too close, so I moved it. Yay for unattainable potential!
