2nd week weigh in

Hi all

Well managed my second week, only blip I ate out with friends and couldn't resist the free dessert!! I figure that I need a treat now and again. Pleased to say that I managed to shift another 1lb, so that's 5.5 so far. If I lose next week I will be under 11 stone for the first time in ages!

I also took delivery of our new cross trainer today, so looking forward to using that, especially when the weather is bad.

I was wondering about those of you who follow the 5:2 diet, what do you eat on your fast days? Just how do you manage on so few calories? Thanks in advance for any info.

Best wishes

Deborah xx

Hello and well done for losing your weight keep it up I am jus in my second hope I will lose something.


Well done on your loss. I find having treats like that now and then stops me craving them.

I got my cross trainer last week, was a nightmare putting it together but love it now it works. Hope you enjoy yours too.

I dont do the 5:2 diet i calorie count so cant help with that im afraid but i would think protein would make you feel fuller. Ainsley harriot cous cous packets are yummy and only about 160cals, so that might help


Hi and thanks for your reply. I was thinking of trying the 5:2 diet, but find that if I get too hungry it triggers either a massive headache or a migraine so I have decided it's not for me, so I am carrying on with the calorie counting. We are putting the cross trainer together tomorrow, or rather I will probably assist my hubby, he's great with the practical stuff, and I can't wait to start using it.

Best wishes x


No problem. I dont think i could do the 5:2 diet as work 12 hour shifts and on my days off i dont want to have to struggle with hunger. Calorie counting has been a godsend. Have fun with the cross trainer :-)
