p.p.s. as it turns out you guys are better at keeping track of my weights than I am! My 5:2 low was 256.8 and it did indeed occur on August 25th. So I am definitely under that. Not sure how I got the 255 number in my head, wishful thinking I guess. So, yes today has been duly noted in the "healthcare" app on my phone, which is showing a nice down hill graph of the losses. And when I add it to the progress tracker in my 5:2 journal, it shows I am still averaging .74 pounds a week, even with the August spike upward. At this rate I will be at my goal in about 2 years. Which would be a massive improvement over what has happened over the last 2 years!
