    My first fast day yesterday was a breeze. Felt like I was cheating as I didn't really feel hungry most of the day and had a good big salad for lunch and decent dinner.

    Today is my birthday so I'm going to treat myself with cake and wine and fast again tomorrow. Looking forward to jumping on the scales on Saturday, fingers crossed I've dropped a little weight 😊

    I have maintained that loss, yes it's great. I haven't gained any weight since January, just haven't really lost anymore.
    I generally feel heaps better, all my bloods have improved considerably, I'm hardly sick, I feel like exercising now.

    My first fasting day is going well! Although I'm about to walk to Coles with the kids so that will be a test.

    I've had one coffee and just water so far. Planning to have a cranberry and pomegranate tea when the kids have their lunch and then a Chobani yoghurt pouch (125 calories) at about 3pm when I usually get hangry 😉

    Then soup for diner and maybe a diet mousse and another tea a bit later on. Will see how I feel. So far so good though!

    I am a little concerned I won't see results because I have an underactive thyroid and am not on medication. I'm worried it will cause me to lose motivation, but will cross that bridge when I get to it I suppose.

    How much weight did you have to lose overall when you initially fasted?

    True, it is not a fast in the sense that you have nothing on the fasting days. You restrict calories to 500 on 2 day per week of your choosing and eat normally (around 2000 cal) the other 5 days. Here is the website if you would like more info www.thefastdiet.co.uk
