So, I’m on holiday at the moment (two weeks after everyone else) and I’ve decided to start the BSD upon my return home – no point spoiling the last couple of days. I did the 5:2 about three years ago and lost three stones but the weight has gradually been creeping up and I have just over a stone to lose. As an incentive I’m going away diving at the end of February – just over 5 weeks time, so I’m hoping that I’ll be able to get somewhere near my goal by then. I’ll post all my starting weights and measurements on Saturday morning. In the meantime, all inappropriate and tempting food at home was cleared out before going away and a delivery of BSD suitable ingredients has been arranged for Saturday morning, so there should be no excuses.
