Hpe Karin is ok, weather in her neck of the woods has been a bit violent.
OK, so today is the official weigh in for the 5:2 forum, so I go along...this morning I was 262.0.
That is after a 5 day food fest over memorial day weekend, and the last 3 days in which I could not seem to manage to get under the 500 calories on any of the 2 days. All that to say, I am pleased, to say the least.
It is the lowest I have been in a while, it is 3.8 pounds lower than the first of last month, and it is 12 pounds since I started 5:2 eight and a half weeks ago! My waist is 3" smaller than when I started.
I haven't done the full set of measurements since I started, I will do them for the next weigh in.
One of my first goals is to get my waist less than half of my height (this is some kind of measure that means a lower heart disease risk), and I am now 5.5" away from that goal!
So I will say it again, I am LOVING this WOE/WOL. I am losing while feeling the most "normal" I have felt since I was pregnant. Very Happy.
