I'm here! I've been doing 5:2 since on/around 23 June and am down 7 pounds from that time. At one point, I was down 8 but have been stuck between 7-8 pounds down total for the past three weeks. I have seen lower numbers but keep bouncing back up into this range, which is clearly a happy weight for my stubborn body.

Seven more to go to be at my original goal of 135 pounds (which, sadly, is still top end of the stupid BMI for me...) and hoping I'll make it there by my birthday in November. :)

And FYE, M2G and Supersweetums all look fabulous in your new photos!

No scales on vacay. Did decent til 2 days ago and um, not good since then. Walking and hiking but... Well, as I said. I DEFINITELY do better on a routine.

High guys! Everyone with new pictures!

Looking good!

I've heard back from two girls and they are still doing it so I'm encouraging them to be a little more active still waiting for a few more

A problem some are having is not being able to sign in on their mobile apps

HERE IS A TRICK I USE...

Every time I log out on my iPhone it does the Denies permission to view the 5:2 group.

Alex has told me its because the groups don't work on the apps.

BUT....what I do is. Go to my "conversations" and click on the original invite to the group and it takes me to the full web version... And as soon as I do that I go back to the app and voila it's working again... Weird I know but it's the only way to do it for me...

What a PITA! I hope Alex gets that fixed soon.

I heard you had to enter through a browser.

Full confession: I have not stepped on the scale since starting 5:2, I am afraid. :/ Right now am fighting giardia so not eating at all, yesterday had one mouthful of plain boiled potato. It has been 6 days of this :(.

Thanks Laura for reaching out to me! I started doing the 5:2 in July, dropped 7 pounds, my scheduled got crazy and I haven't been posting. I also couldn't access the group on my ipad, but I just tried Laura's tip and it truly works!! Glad to see everyone doing well and I will get on here and post. I truly thank Georgia for even introducing this to me thru her posts. I would have never tried it.

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.

        I had surgery Oct 29. Lost 35#. Plateau now. But seeing what clothes fit now is encouraging.
