performance: gaining 2.9 lb a week

Hey Everyone

I'm Kelly. 45 year old English /Turkish. I am happily married with 2 great kids.
In 2014, I upped the profile of health and fitness in my life whilst working less and generally getting a better work-life balance. I used 5:2 to lose weight. It suited me! I reached my original target (68kg) in December 2014.
Since then I have been getting more and more into real / natural foods and in late summer 2015 stepped over to eating real foods only.... now I find myself free from calorie counting and fasting and restricting. I eat more intuitively. Sometimes my weight creeps up a bit. Sometimes it goes down a bit but I enjoy cooking and eating and my brain is free from the worries and stresses of the eternal dieting cycle. Long may it continue! I am enjoying the ride!
I wish everyone success with their journey!

Don't carry your mistakes around with you. Instead, place them under your feet and use them as stepping stones.

Anybody from the UK?
Thanks for the top tip, Riocaz.
Unfortunately, I am not in the UK but that will be on my shopping list for when I go back!

Hi MizzyH
I'm British Smile and totally emphathise with the 'cups issue' - in my house, we have many sized cups and I know which ones I'd like to measure some foods with but I'm sure they're not the regulatory ones that the recipes refer to.
I am also a fan of 5:2 although I am doing ADF at the moment as I have a mini goal that I want to get to for 6th May and things were going slowly for me on 5:2..... but will revert to 5:2 when I get closer to my goal.
I don't live in Blighty. I am also a Turkish citizen and live in Turkey but I consider myself 90% English. Would love to connect with you Smile

Zumba Challenge
Hi Fatpolice
An average is:
High impact zumba burns 110 calories per 10 minutes with a technique score of 85% plus. Medium impact zumba burns 100 calories per 10 minutes with a technique score of 85% plus.
I got these figures from Nintendo Wii's Zumba Core game.
