WOE: Maintenence - 5:2 (as of 3/1/14)
Start Date: 7/7/13 - JUDDD
When DH told me I needed to stop losing this morning (starting a DD), I decided to move into semi-maintenence. As in, I still have 3 lb to go in my mind, but I'll relax my WOE so he feels better about it.
I'm starting 4:3 - I'll stick with it till the last 3 lb are gone, then move to 5:2 to officially maintain.

Because of that, today turned into a second UD.
I'm excited about the predictability of 4:3. MWF DD, T,Th,Sat,Sun UD
Woo hoo!

I realize that I can change up my calories just a bit and still have the same weekly intake:
current 1950+350 = avg. 1150/day
New: 1800+350 = avg. 1180/day

I did 4:3 for my first month after calling goal and then transitioned to 5:2 in April.

Did you lose anything during that 4:3 month?

Does she have a long way to go? In some ways, itís easier for me, because my husband doesnít eat at all on his down days, so it doesnít really make any difference to him whether I eat reduced calories or normal levels on those days. If youíre eating together, it has to be harder to eat a full meal with someone else who isnít.

My weight this morning, after three consecutive up days was 116.2, the same as it was last Monday after a down day. We’ll see how it goes this week with five consecutive up days!

Yes, more slowly than with EOD, but I still lost.

She does have a while to go, but I spoke with her last night and she said she is fine with it. We shall see.

Itís important to find something that works for both of you: so you can support and encourage her without wasting away .

Thoughts raised by this:

People have said to me, 'Oh, how can you sit with us while you are not eating, and we are? It must be so hard!"

But really, I think it is the other way around.

My Honey and Kids don't mind me sitting with them refraining while they eat. We talk, etc. But almost everyone else I have done this with, gets VERY uncomfortable. My mother-in-law almost flipped out. It was causing such an issue during her visit that I started eating tiny bits to keep the peace. (Would not do this with friends or acquaintances, but mother-in-laws on a visit are a different category!)

I think it makes some people feel like gluttons, or that you are reproaching the in some way. Or maybe they are projecting what they feel their discomfort would be. An interesting phenomenon.

I'm trying out 5:2 to maintain. Fingers crossed it works for me. If not, I'll back down to 4:3. I've done 5:2 for a week and the numbers are good.

MrsAndi- how long are you going to give the 5:2 before deciding if it works for you? I am almost to the point where I will be switching to 4;3, and I was thinking I would check my averages after a month. But that's just a guess on my part.

I was thinking of maybe two months to see how 5:2 works out. I was losing a bit less than a pound a week alternating days, so my guess would be that I’d lose very slightly on 5:2, but with day to day fluctuations, that would be hard to see over just a week or two.

I often wonder about this...totally fasting on DDs around others. I know my DH would have a fit. I love to eat my 500 or so calories on DDs, so it isn't an issue.

Yes, I find a lot of people are uncomfortable when I don't eat and DW will not tolerate going to a restaraunt if I won't eat. I have no problem sitting with others while they eat. None.

I have to admit, I have a hard time doing this. I really feel good about being able to take just a small portion of something and just eating that. Also seems to stop people from making remarks about, "why aren't you eating?".

After two weeks of 5:2 my weight today is Ĺ lb less than at the start. Too small a difference to say if it’s really moving at all, but I’ll keep on the same pattern for a few more weeks and see what it looks like then.

I think this might sometimes reflect cultural/family history.

My mother's family used the expression, "Sitting there, like Death at a Feast" - and as Death is usually skeletal, I wonder if it sparks those connotations for some people. On the flip side, lots of adults have memories of their mothers saying they'd 'eat later' or 'I'm not hungry now, you have mine' when they were children and not fully aware until later that adults were going without meals so that the children could always have some food.

Plus, for some, there's possibly the memory of being sent to bed without supper as a punishment or seeing other family members punished by withholding food?

Culturally, there are lots of stories of errant women (sigh) being punished by being unable to leave the house, and being both shunned by the family and denied food (being starved to death in some versions of these stories). The families ate around these women, affecting to be oblivious to the fact that they weren't served and had no food.

Doubtless, some of it does make others feel uncomfortable about their food choices and it might be threatening the usual dynamic of family/friends and upending usual roles within it. It's unusual historically to be so food secure that we can choose not to eat without it threatening our wellbeing - and I think it's hard to accept that in some societies.

I still seem to be losing on 5:2 (Just under 3 pounds so far this month). Iíll stay with it for a bit longer to give the trend time to show more clearly through the noise and decide whether to try 6:1. I think it probably depends on the frequency of interruptions. Thereís not much going on at this time of year, so quite a long spell of staying on plan. Through the summer thereíll be more visitors & holidays, so keeping a slight downward trend in between will be useful.

One would think there should be a downward trend with 5:2, but I for one don't see it. I don't count UDs so some may just be high enough to offset the 2 DDs. I don't know.

Iím not counting up days either. Youíd think that at some point your body would decide to get hungry enough to stop you losing any more. Maybe it will happen soon? I suppose this is why I started 5:2 before I reached the mustnít lose any more weight .

I need to stay around the same size, though. I have a lot of clothes at this size.

Hmmm. I’m down 1.5 lb in the last two weeks. 3 lb in the last four weeks (three of those weeks were on 5:2). 113.8 this morning (after a down day). That’s a new low.

I’m going to do another week of 5:2 then, if it’s still going the same way, I’ll try 6:1 for a month. I’m taking advantage of the quiet season to do some experimentation. Over the summer things will be busier and I’m sure I’ll need to do 5:2 or alternate day in between the disruptions.

I did some measurements this morning too: waist 25", hips 36".

That reads like a good, realistic plan for the Down Season (so to speak).

Is that your natural waist (i.e., smallest abdominal point which is what we tend to measure for women in the UK) or the measurement taken round the top of your hip bones/supra-iliac bones?

My natural waist is 25" (in the morning, anyway ); the supra-iliac waist is 28" and my hips are 37".

The stickies at the top of the forum explain it. It's just an eating schedule (hence, alternate day fasting) and you can choose how to eat within it, whether it's low carb, ketogenic, South Beach, and various other programmes.

I’m not quite sure how to assess the weight loss for February! Last day of Jan to last day of Feb was 3.7 lb, 1st Feb to 1st Mar was 2.2 lb. 2 or 3 pounds down, anyway, doing 5:2.

Jan 120.2
— alternate days
Feb 116.8
— 5:2
Mar 114.6

I think I’ll go ahead and take advantage of the quiet season to try 6:1. If I decide I want to lose another pound or two later, I can always go back to alternate days or 4:3 for a while later on.

i always love reading this thread, so i thought i'd tell you my plan to give another spin on maintenance...

i'm going to try to do this, to ease my body into getting to eat more (always a plus!):

since JUDDD consists of 7 up days and 7 down days in a two week period, i'm going to do 8 up days, with 6 down days within a two week period; then move to 9 up days, with 5 down days; then 10 up days, with 4 down days; then if i'm super lucky 11 up days/3 down days (that ain't gonna happen! though i can dream, can't i?)

my JUDDD plan is a little weird in that i work at an average calorie expenditure for the week. i.e. if i eat overeat on a down day, by 50 calories, i subtract that from my up day, to keep things on schedule (making it a 550 down day, followed by a 2150 up day).

this is going a wee bit little slower than strictly doing 4:3 or 5:2. i'm super paranoid of gaining weight.

i still would love to lose 10 more pounds, but at 52 my face is starting to show some lines. that's going to be what stops me, i'm afraid. not that i'm vain or anything. lol
