Not having a great day. I weighed myself - even though I knew I should wait until Friday - and after a week of eating a thousand times better than normal and after another fasting day I'm only down 200 grams. Blergh.
I'm going to keep going, but I'm losing the initial first week motivation/enthusiasm. This sucks.
I'm rather guilty of weighing myself just about every day and my weight fluctuates massively each day. I guess that's why it's recommended to weigh yourself no more than once a week.
On the upside 200gms is still a loss and any loss is an awesome loss! Slower weightloss=less chance of loose skin too, so there are definite upsides.

You're so right! I know it logically, but I'm just struggling with the fact I'm ready to be skinny now and I don't see why it can't happen instantly :P haha
Omg. Yes. I would love to be skinny right now too.
Before we went away, DH and had a concerted effort at this diet/lifestyle.
Weight loss was slow, but we went on a 5 week holiday and ate, drank and decreased our usual physical activity.
I put only 1 kilo on in that time.
I firmly believe that while the weight comes off slowly, it also comes back on slowly if you come off fast days for a period of time.
That's the great thing about 5:2 I think, I can really see it as a long term lifestyle change that I can stick to because it doesn't have too many restrictions.
I saw this idea on Instagram and thought I'd share. I have two jars, one is filled with gems and each one represents 500 grams of weight, so I then transfer them to the empty jar as the weight comes off. I love it because I look at it every day and it motivates me to get more gems across
