Weighed 456 this morning. Down 8 from yesterday, and 14 from Tuesday. About half of what I gained since the last fast ended. I picked up some more lancets, alcohol wipes and test strips (was down to my last 3), along with a prescription. I was sorely tempted to buy something, but stuck with a […]
I got through the first fast day. Definite temptations, but stuck with water and pink salt. I was napping in front of the television by 11p so I turned in early. I woke several times but probably slept okay overall, and the first few hours were probably pretty solid. Down six pounds from yesterday. Honey […]
if it were just the peeing, I wouldn’t mind so much. But the Sap Tap in my right leg has been weeping water all day. I’m glad the water is exiting, but it’s going to be soggy next few days. My sock is drenched. 20 hours in. The diuretic dose seems to have opened the […]
Yeah. I gained 30 pounds in one week. Monday last week started off well. Blood work and urine test. Well into day six of my fast. And then the light headedness hit. My appetite has been unmanaged since then. Had I managed to stick to the recovery-meal-only I’d initially intended, I’d likely be in the […]
Yeah. Once out, especially if you slip, it can be tough to get back into it. Eating was pretty good today until about 6:30p. Then, granola bars. grrr.
So, I ended the latest fast at 5.5 days. I had blood work done Monday morning, in advance of my doctor appointment Wednesday. I was feeling very lightheaded after the seven vials were drawn, to the point that I drove home instead of to work.
Felt a migraine coming on before bed; tried to avoid drugs, slept with an ice pack. Fitful sleep again. Still very light sensitive when I woke up, so broke down and took some Excedrin migraine. On a fast, so didn’t take with food. Feeling it a bit in the stomach. My wife just asked if it […]
Well into day 3, about 65 hours in. Weight today: 444.6, close to the lowest weight of my previous fast. Feeling good about that, but expecting the losses to slow soon; they usually do. I have gotten around 20 pounds on 5-7 day fasts, so if that happens again I’l probably average 2-3 pounds a […]
I’m well into day 2. I’m using midnight Tuesday as the start time. I had a few Costco parmesan crisps just before, which was very low carb but too much protein to let slide as a fat fast. but for a satisfying crunchy guilt-free thing, a couple of crisps are great for eating days. I […]
just a quick update. not quite to 24 hours, but have made it safely so far through work. no snacks, no slips. My blood sugar at 7:15 was 89, which I have to be happy about. Anything under 100 makes me happy. Day’s not over yet, but on to tomorrow.
