What about them? Sorry, just not sure of the question.

I eat them because they are cheap and I'm trying to cut down on my meat consumption. When I make tacos, I usually make some blacks beans to put in them as well. I make soup with beans. Homemade refried beans. Black beans in my barley salad. I don't usually eat them on fast days, though.

I am slow and just saw Sum38's post. YUM.

I love your menu. Eggs are my issue since losing weight. I burp this awful something after I eat them so I'd have to find something to replace them with. Maybe I'll try egg beaters again. Didn't think about that

Oh no! Eggs are my staple breakfast on the weekend, I would be sad to have that issue. I'm sure you'll find something.

I don't like breakfast, but I tolerate hard boiled eggs, plus they keep me full for awhile, so I eat them in the mornings.

Now it is my fruit smoothie protein shake time.

I started the 5:2 last week and have lost a pound, which is fantastic because I have been stuck like glue. I fast Sundays and Wednesdays generally. It wasn't as hard as I thought it would be. I also did the intermittent fasting which helped before too. I just have to have enough energy for working out, so I have to plan the fast days carefully. I do like it, I think I can do this for maintenance once I hit goal which is hopefully quite soon!

Sassyblonde yay! A pound is fantastic! I lost a ton of bloat last week, which was my first week and I feel very optimistic about this diet.

I did have a few bad days here, but I am determined to fast today.

I am rare; I don't get shaky and weak on my fast days like others. I can carry on my normal workouts. As a matter of fact, the workout take my hunger away.

Sassyblonde what made you choose 5:2?

Sum, I read another post and I thought what the heck. I was stuck and starting to slip not tracking everything I ate..and I felt like I wanted to recommit. I am the point now where it would be easy to stop and maintain. The last pounds are so hard and so it would be easy to just call it all good now..not what I want but what I would settle for. So I was heading that direction and needed to see a change to reignite my desire. I also am now blogging for my personal trainer so I am re-committed to goin all the way.

Sassyblonde. You are so close to goal! This will take you there for sure. I still have 15-20 more pounds, and I am hoping that this lifestyle will be the magical thing for me.

Today is my fast day; the witching hour is here and now I would like to eat...but I won't give in

Sum and Sassy ... keep doing what you're doing. I am happy for both of you

I am struggling ... Today I ate 3090 calories. My calorie intake is supposed to be 1338 according to MFP. I doubled that plus 414 calories more.

Gonna try to eat properly tomorrow

Love2b150...tomorrow is another day :-) I ended up fasting as I couldn't exercise and thought I may as well get it done. hopefully I can workout tomorrow. Sum, it that last hour it two before bedtime that gets me! Which is right now...chewing gum, chugging water trying to Make it! I found this Protein packet that you mix with water..5 grams protein and 5 grams of fiber..30 calories that really really helps when I am starting to feel it, they are by Kellogs. I can't find them in the store anymore so I am going to Amazon.

Oh, Rennie! Hugs! I have been there a million and one times. -- Today is a new day, make it into a fast day to cut your cycle. That always helps me.

I will fast with you if that would help!

I will have a hard boiled egg for bfast, with some green tea (Green tea power!), skip lunch and have 300cals worth salmon filet, and 130 calorie salad for dinner.

Sassy, I'm hoping to do better today but it's still early and I don't have as much confidence as I had before.

Sum I wish I had signed on before church or directly after. So far today, I have had 2 grapefruits, probably 1.5 cups of watermelon and a little cream cheese frosting after frosting the cake (it's gone now). I have two cups of green tea waiting with 3 bottles of water beside me.

weigh in today 167 up 2.6 from yesterday
