This is the first time I have posted anything on this site, but am looking for inspiration. Last year I lost over a stone following the 5:2 diet. It was easy to do, but this year has been a washout. This summer I have been going through a rough time and have eaten my way to putting back half of what I lost. I have Sjogren's Syndrome and osteoathritis and it is easy to feel sorry for yourself when you have little energy to shop or cook. It becomes whatever is to hand. I know I have around another two stone to go to get below obese, but it feels like climbing mountains. Today I went back on the diet, fingers crossed I can stick to it this time.
