Fasting Logs

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)

Well. I am feeling like shit. But then again, today is day 4, which means tomorrow is the last potential bad day, and then we're sailing. I'm high strung, emotionally. I was reading a book yesterday and kept crying for no reason during the exposition. Realizing it was not a good day to deal with other people, I mostly kept to myself, in my room. I was hoping today would be better, and while emotionally it is, physically I feel like crap.

I still have bowel movements. They reek. I know I need to drop my coffee but right now it's all that's keeping me feeling human. So... Tomorrow will be no coffee?

I mostly just wanna crawl back under the covers and hide until tomorrow.

Weight - 144.1 (-0.4kg from yesterday)
Glucose - 104
BP - 129/81
HB - 87

Three spots entirely unchanged from yesterday.

Yesterday... Yesterday was a very bad day. It started out just fine, but then I hit the horribleness of fasting. I was tired, no energy, brain fog, etc. I think I slept in most of the day, until some of the family came to visit in the evening and I had no choice but to greet them and be social. Also had a huge fight with my sister, who claims looking at me and my dad is enough to know everything about fasting. I told her that's ignorant and she started yelling at me and moving her neck and all that. Ugh. I gave her a smile and left the table, and we haven't talked since. She's convinced my mom I call her names. I'm not in the mood to deal with this crap.

Since I had slept so much in the afternoon, it was hard to fall asleep at night, so I ended being in bed from 9pm-1am just reading. That was fun. I wish I could afford to do that every day.

Woke up about an hour ago today. So far I'm feeling sharp and focused. If this fast will follow the same general shift of the big fasts I used to do in 2008 (I also fasted earlier this year, but I don't remember having days like yesterday there), then my hard days are always either day 2 or 3, and then either 4 or 5, and then smooth sailing. Though I'm really hoping yesterday was the end of it. I need to function and study for exams and hand in assignments and stuff.

Didn't do an enema yesterday, seeing I had a lot of bowel movements all through my waking hours.

Stats from this morning:
Weight - 144.5 kg (-0.9kg form yesterday)
Glucose - 107 (still too high)
BP - 124/74 (yay! perfect!)
HB - 93 (too high I think)

Measurements from this morning:
Chest - 122 cm
Waist - 111 cm (-1 from yesterday, -5 in total of two days. Still weird. Still amazing for me to see)
Hips - 135 cm (-1 from yesterday)

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).
It was a rough night, with the effects of the magnesium flush. I woke up at 10:30 today, which is about four hours later than usual, but it's fine... Changed the plans for today up a bit, but I'll be out of the house most of the day.

Starting stats:
Weight - 146.5 kg
Glucose - 100
BP - 141/87
HR - 89
neck - 44
chest - 123
waist - 116
hips - 133
bicep - 48
wrist - 20
thigh - 85
shin - 56
ankle - 31

I'll be monitoring chest/waist/hips daily, the rest weekly. Measurements are in cm. Good luck to me.
