Nice going :-)

Holidays and countless social events has seen me maintain my 23lb loss but not lose any more despite still fasting. I'd like to lose another 7lbs ideally.

I am going to stick with the 5:2 for the health benefit and tinker with my calorie intake on other days to maintain a fairly constant weight.... hopefully :-)

Yeah that's sort of what I do. I'm pretty happy with my weight now, still fast twice a week but eat loads the rest of the time :-)
