Still 17 stone ! mightily relieved actually!! We ate out all the time during the last 10 days in Malta, but we also did quite a bit of easy walking (for me). I am up against lymphodema and arthritis, as well as high blood pressure, so I need to carry on being very aware of what goes in my mouth, because I really do love food!! I will go back on the 5:2 diet this week, coupled with generally keeping a written record of what I eat. Good luck to everyone else...this has to be the very long haul for me!!
