Jinks - Thank you so much for the welcome!! It is nice to see that someone else is just beginning and that you like it and it sounds like wonderful results....8lbs. is amazing!! Good for you!! Congrats!! Hopefully I will start seeing some better results soon. I am only 2 1/2 weeks in so I am just trying to find my way with what to eat on those days and being better on my "feast' days. Sometimes I get the mentality the day before a fast that I need to eat everything not pinned down, because I can't tomorrow. I need to get that out of my head so that I can be successful!!

Thanks again for the welcome!!

Sorry I'm late but welcome Aisling and Penny! I'm new to intermittent fasting also (about 6 weeks in) and I love it. The control that comes with it is refreshing. I like the freedom I have with this lifestyle. Instead of worrying everyday about counting calories we only really have to do it two days a week. Once your tummy shrinks down you don't eat as much on the other days. It seems to be working for me. I have lost about 8 lbs or so since I started. But the way I feel is a much better measure!

Looking forward to being your SP friend emoticon

Thank you so much Queen and Tammae. Tammae all your advice on my Spark Page and the information I have read you shared on here is inspiring and makes me feel like I can actually finally do this. Tomorrow will be my first Fast Day. I work 2 jobs tomorrow, so hopefully it won't be a problem. I hope and pray this does for me as it has both of you and help me get out of a bad place and some pretty unhealthy habits!!

Thank you again for the warm welcome and all the advice and help!!

You inspire me!!

I second everything Tammae said. Fasting totally changed my relationship with food, even on my non-fasting days. It's just incredible.

Penny... left you a note on chat. I am so grateful to have found this diet. Not only did I lose weight but my appetite became smaller... sometimes I still overeat but it is NOTHING like I did before fasting. I used to binge on foods... sweets in particular. I can't explain it but after my first fast I felt more in control of my demon appetite. Best wishes to you. Let us know how your fasts go!

Just recently heard about this way of eating and started doing a bit of research on it yesterday. I am thinking I am going to give it a shot and was glad to see a team that follows the diet. I want to go through and read threads and see if I can learn a bit more about it and get some meal ideas for Fast Days. I am a very fussy eater so it's hard for me to diet, so I am hoping this can work for me. Have you all been fairly successful with this way of eating?

Looking forward to learning more and becoming a member of your team. emoticon

Thank you,
Penny

Hi everyone! I am starting the 5:2 diet tomorrow. I tried this about a year ago & did pretty well. Not sure why I stopped, but I am needing something a bit different. I have been doing really well & have lost 31 lb.'s, but I can feel myself sliding, so I need to mix it up & I've decided that this is it. I've been re-reading all of the information & getting myself prepared for my first fast day tomorrow. I'm excited to see that there is a group for this & hoping for encouragement (as well as give it). Yay! Excited for something new.
