Well done on the losses everyone!
Just went out for my first run since November and man it felt great! I have recurring runners knee and am doing everything I can to avoid it this time, so am starting out really slow. Planned on doing 1km but didn't realise my Garmin was set in miles - so I actually did 1.6km. Oh well, that can be my starting distance, it's still nice and short. Praying that my knee holds up because I absolutely love running!

Omg...lol! I thought I'd try on my size 12 jeans that I couldn't button up (see pic page 1) after reading about your jeans @PinkPink and..... They fit!! Sure there's still a little muffin, lol, but they do up! And I can even fit my thumb in, haha. Pretty stoked with this after only a 9 days. Wowsers trousers! Eeeep.

Well done to everyone! I'm just cruising along. I haven't weighed myself as I don't have scales so may venture into the skinny clothes draw and see how I fare!
Does anyone know if the 5:2 would be suitable while breastfeeding? I'm guessing maybe the fasting days would effect supply? Would love to hear if anyone has done it and it's been ok.
Have a great Friday!

Whats everyones eating plan for the weekend?

my coffee early on and that sustained me until 11am when I felt hungry. So I had a herbal tea and hung out until about 1pm to have my boiled egg with plenty of pepper. It sounds weird, but I sat down at the table, sliced the egg, and ate it slowly with a knife and fork and really enjoyed it. I think my biggest problem is scarfing food down without truely savouring it.
Plenty of soda water and another tea got me through the arvo
Anyway I had the chicken curry meal probably at 4.30pm which was really yummy! I think spicey food also makes you feel fuller so I was fine until bedtime.
I think my fast days will have to be planned when I have a busy day or when Im at work because the day goes a lot quicker. I was at home all day yesterday with the kids and it was
hard not to think about food even though I wasn't necessarily hungry.
At no stage did I feel woozy or light headed and after the chicken curry, I could have gone for a walk and been fine.
Ok so now apparently I can have 1600 calories on my non fast days but I'm just going to do what you do @Marigold and just make good choices without focussing on calories.
Going to tuck into porridge for brekky this morning

Sounds like you breezed through your first fast day @PinkPink, well done! It makes me feel a bit less scared for my first one on Monday!
Yesterday I ate:
Breakfast - 1/2 cup of porridge and milk and a cup of tea.
Morning tea - two rice cakes with WW cottage cheese, tomato and cucumber
Lunch - veggie stew
Afternoon tea - Celery sticks and a coffee.
Dinner - Frittata
I'm having green tea and water throughout the day and I also had a coke zero.
I think I did well considering I did some baking!

Eating slowly does give your brain and stomach a chance to realise you've had enough so there's definitely something in it.
I'm definitely guilty of eating like it's a race, which started when bub was new and I might only get 10 minutes to grab a bite before the onslaught of baby wrangling started again.
