Starting Weight: 153.4 lbs

Today's Weight: 143.2 lbs

Total Lost: 10.2 lbs

Woohoo!!! Down ten pounds! 1.8 lbs since yesterday. Granted, five of that was all the food I ate last weekend, but still!! The gym parking lot was so packed last night that I gave up and went home and went for a 1 mile run with my husband instead. 9:38, which is a good time for me! Took a BCAA pill afterwards otherwise I get sore for days and my legs take forever to recover. I was so slow on the first half, which is uphill, but we flew through the second half. I actually kind of miss running more than 1 mile, but I feel like 1 mile is a good distance when fasting. Long walks are nice, too. I've been sleeping better than expected. Maybe your body eventually gets used to longer fasts and starts sleeping better? Not sure, but I hope that is the case. Long day at work coming up today, but going to have a chill weekend.

Today's challenge is going to be that I am going to a political MeetUp tonight, and there is specifically going to be vegan food (I guess the organizer is also vegan) and it kills me to not eat vegan food at events because it's so rare that it's available (other than stuff like chips/salsa). Anyway, I will have my excuse prepared and whip it out as necessary to explain why I am not eating and drinking. I am kind of bummed, to be honest, though, because I've been looking forward to this meeting half just for the food! And since this will be a new group of people (who I am excited to form some friendships with), I feel like not participating in the eating/drinking will make me weird/stand out, but oh well. What can you do. My goals are more important.

Happy Day 5 to everyone who is still participating! I absolutely love having this site to come to each day. Super grateful for everyone's positivity and the community we are building here.

Another emotional day yesterday. I really wish that bit would already pass, since it's keeping me from being productive as I need to be.

Yesterday was hard too. I wasn't hungry, but I kept wanting to vomit because of the dead kittens breath. I don't understand why it gets so bad. I also STILL have bowel movements, so I'm currently probably sitting with the last mug of coffee I'll have during this fast. I just needed something to get rid of the breath that even brushing my teeth didn't work.

I'll probably swap for hot water with lemon/ginger. A few pieces of that, that I don't eat, end up going a long way.

My mom yesterday asked me to break my fast a few days ahead of the Rosh Ha Shana dinner because it would break her heart to see me just sitting there not eating. I told her I'd think about it. It's still two and a half weeks away. I figure, if I break my fast before then, it won't be a problem, but if I'll still be fasting, I wouldn't want to break it over something like that. Maybe I could ask or make vegetable soup and just drink the broth of it like soup so it looks like I'm actively participating or something.

My dad noted that the weight loss is already visible on me. I'm not sure why, because 3-4kg is really nothing to write home about when you have about 70kg to lose, and while the waist measurements are indeed impressive, it's not even the tip of the iceberg in terms of what needs to go.

Anyway, enough rambling for now.

Weight - 135.6kg (-0.7 from yesterday)
Glucose - 101
BP - 131/79
HB - 90

Chest - 121 cm (-1)
Waist - 110 (-1)
Hips - 134 (-1)
