So yeah, that was the water weight/food weight going bye-bye. I figure today and tomorrow I'll drop another 2-3 lbs going into ketosis, and then I'll start actually counting the weight loss as real fat loss once I am down to my previous fasted low-weight of 145 from last week. My September goal was to get to 140 by September 30th, and I'm not sure I'll get there, but I think I'll get pretty close.

Yesterday was a breeze. Day 1 is easy for me. Days 2-4 I am usually a bit hungry. I have learned to just shift my focus to "What can I drink?" instead of my typical "What can I eat?" I have a lot of different flavors of tea and bubbly waters at my office, so I just go to town on liquid, calorie-free flavors all day. Slept in a bit today, but I'll be going for a 1 mile run this evening, and doing body weight exercises (squats, jump squats, lunges, sit-ups, pushups). Feeling good about the next 8 days!

Last night, I had about 1/4 teaspoon of XCT oil when I took my multi-vitamin, because I realized that I may have been getting Vitamin K deficient from doing back-to-back extended fasts. I started bruising really easily, which is an early sign of K deficiency, since K is important for clotting. I always take a multi-vitamin when I fast, but I had (stupidly) forgotten that A, D, E, and K were probably not being absorbed much without any fat since they are fat soluble. So I had about 30 calories worth of fat with my vitamin, which might not be enough for max absorption, but should certainly make a big difference. I plan to repeat that each day that I fast. I don't think that 30 calories will have a negative impact on anything (autophagy, hunger, ketosis, weight loss, etc.). Curious if anyone else is taking a little oil with a multi-vitamin while fasting to increase absorption. If this was a stand-alone fast, I wouldn't bother, but I am basically always either in EF or IF mode, and plan to be until I finish losing weight.

Haaaa I did it. We are so in, this time! Today is day 2. Got all of today also scheduled out of the house. Still no dead kittens breath, but I expect that will come shortly. Gave myself an enema before sleep last night, ugh the smell.

Oddly, I feel like there currently is food in my stomach. As though I'm bloated after a heavy meal. Hope this feeling goes away soon, I hate it.

Today's stats:
Weight - 145.4 (-1.2kg from yesterday)
Glucose - 130 (not sure why this jumped so dramatically after a 24 hour fast)
BP - 144/78
HB - 89

Chest - 122 cm (-1 from yesterday)
Waist - 112 cm (checked several times... Apparently I lot 4 cm's overnight there. This is so weird. I was hoping for 1, not expecting 4 in a day)
Hips - 136 cm (this is +3 to yesterday... I guess I measured in another place, but I couldn't find a spot that was close to yesterday's measurement. Very weird. Have paid more attention so next time I stick to the same spot).
