Anyone else trying to lose weight or get healthier?

I'm about a month into a program of eating 5 days a week and fasting for 2.

I've done this before -- and everything else for that matter -- but this is what works for me. I'm able to stay on it for extended periods of time and when I have slip ups this is the regimen I can return to.

Love to hear what anyone else is doing and share the motivation to stay on track.

PS Eggs are excellent high protein food!

I actually am doing Weight Watchers this Spring/Summer! I’ve lost about 45 pounds! And eggs are zero points 😉

Motivation??? NO CLUE. No idea how I was able to stick to it so far or even start up for that matter. Something just clicked in my brain. I am, unfortunately, “falling off” I think, probably from a combo of things. Suddenly more hungry and craving high fat and sugary things. Kind of plateaued some, too. Very stressed all spring and summer from work but especially these last few weeks from working 50-60 hours a week. Too many “splurge” days last few weeks. Also I really think it’s seasonal?? Has just started to feel like fall and I really get the sense my body wants to fatten up for the winter ...

Curious: So how well does it work for you? Weight loss amount? Energy levels? Sugar with drawl? Is this intermediate fasting like I've been hearing good things about?

I seriously need to start. I've started several times and failed. But the good news is you can't succeed unless you start some where. Eating disorders suck!
So I'm getting ready to start with the help of Contrave. I've actually had the prescription for months and have not filled it because I read some bad reviews but I also read good ones. So I think I'm going to make a start date within the next two weeks. I can't start while I'm helping take care of a elderly person right now because I hear it can make you nauseous to the point of not being able to function. That can't be good. But I've also heard opposite , I've just been to scared to start.

I need to lose weight. I was always skinny, but menopause has been brutal. I also stopped smoking and that has not helped with the weight. I've never dieted before so am unsure how to approach this issue. I have always had an enormous sweet tooth. The fasting is intriguing. Giving up meat is a thought too. Vegan is not an option as I love eggs & need honey for allergies & eating.
