Threw up in the morning some bile. Like a cup of bile. Had to break fast. So did with some cantaloupe and a few marcone almonds. Feeling good, maybe just keep going? Officially 4 lbs down.

I am fasting 20 days, hoping to lose 20 lbs.

38 hours in...all I can think about is popcorn. 

Drinking my water, coke zero, and sparkling water.

Hubbys birthday is on the 4th, not sure what I'm gonna do!! Suggestions? Should I just eat under 500, or what??

.8 lbs down. 19.2 to go.

Started Tuesday, 4/17/2018 - 235.4 lbs.

I have been wanting to do this for so long. Hitting my "__" birthday on April 7th made ME commit to starting this.  I don't want to spend another year looking this way; hating to get dressed in the morning; feeling like everyone is looking at my size constantly, hearing some ugly remarks from my husband every now and then.  Even though I know it is true.  Fat is not pretty.  It was making me feel to tired to walk outside at lunchtime, making me stay in and spend less time going to events. I have been on every diet known to man and women.  Could not seem to get past 10 lbs.  So time for a change and what better time than the Spring!

So Day 1 which was a work day I was surprised that I did not get hungry.  I was so busy that I just kept drinking my water and hot green tea.  When my lunch hour came I just spent the time reading sites on fasting and some ebooks to keep my mind occupied.

Wednesday, April 18, 2018 - 233 lbs.

It was nice to see some water loss in lbs.  Always a motivator.  My husband woke up not feeling well and we ended up going to the ER at 1:30 AM, his pressure was high, it was more anxiety than anything else. Got home at 4:00 AM.  Tried to sleep but he snored for the next 2 hours.  When I woke up I weighed myself and noticed a couple of pounds down so that was enough to keep me motivated.  Usually I would have been stressed out and would eat something fattening to get through the feelings of being stressed.  But for some reason I had a hot cup of green tea and packed my water thermos for work.  Had another busy day and my energy was great all day, I even worked an hour of overtime.  But at about 6:00 p.m. I felt myself getting really tired and on the drive home I was feeling weak.  I kept sipping on water and told myself that I better go to bed the moment I get in the house.  That is what I did.  I slept about 10 hours.  I think going to the ER zonked me out.

Thursday, April 19, 2018 - 230 lbs.

Slept like a log.  Felt calm when I woke up.  I find I have more time in the mornings since I don't have to cook breakfast.  Had a great day at work.  I brought my keto stix in and I was in small ketosis at noon which is usually my lunch time.  I was so excited to see this.  By 2:00 PM the keto stix read 4.0 moderate so I was starting to burn fat today.  So excited!!  Drank my water all day wih a cup of green tea here and there.  Did some reading about coconut oil.  Adding a teaspoon to your tea to burn more fat.  I figure I am burning fat on my own just staying on course.  Glad to have a site like this one to be able to journal what I am doing without a lot of negativity about fasting. Fasting is so awesome.  So glad that I am strong enough to do this. Came home and the family had pizza.  Thank God they ate before I got home.  There was no temptation.  Oh and did I  mention my office had a meeting this afternoon and they set out cookies, brownies, sodas, spring water bottles. So glad I saw my ketosis reading.  It kept me motivated.


Spent some time reading up on what to do when I am finished fasting.  I hope to make it 30 days but I will take it one day at a time.  My first goal was to try for one week and see how I feel.  I have a lot of weight to lose, 100 lbs.  I figure I should weigh about 135 lbs. I have read where people lose 30 to 50 lbs. in 30 days.  I have not had any bad reactions so far (knock on wood).  I have never been sickly, just obese.  Which in itself is a sickness.  Well off to read more on healthy ways to eat after long fasts.  I can't believe it is almost 8:00 PM and I am not hungry.  WOW!

Friday, April 20, 2018 - 229.6 lbs.

Crazy busy day at work.  Made it through drinking, water, green tea all day. I find myself working through lunch having so much energy.

Broke the fast and ate the dinner my daughter made of salmon cake, some tuna, red wine.  I figured from this point on I will start Intermittent fasting or OMAD (one meal a day).  Now that I have taught myself control over food, I will continue on with fasting during the day and eating a meal at night.

The water fast has really changed the way I think of eating. I have lost some weight, gained strength in my approach to food.  Slept well. Had many dreams.

Saturday, April 21, 2018 - 229.2 lbs.

Woke up feeling good. Did a keto stix check and I am still showing pink (small). Which means I am still burning fat.  So made a grocery list today of everything you could think of that goes in to salads. I googled salads and saw so many beautiful ones that I made a healthier list.  I put brussel sprouts, broccoli, spring mix salad, beets, sweet potatoes, blueberries, strawberries, etc.

So I will fast now with a 22:2 hour window. Which is fasting 22 hours out of the day and allow myself a window of 2 hour eating.  It may end up being 1 hour.

I know on my job this coming week is Staff Week which means each day they have some type of junk food day going on.  I feel that I will be able to keep up with my fasting during work hours.  It helps me to save money too.  When they have their events during the day I will go outside for a walk and get some sun.  Planning ahead for things that pop up.

Weighed myself pre-fast, I was 180.5.

For some reason I find dry fasting easier than water/salt fast.

I think its because I don't have to worry about putting anything in my body and also I don't piss out all my electrolytes.

First day I had really great energy.

I slept for about 4 hours and woke up early in the morning at about 4 AM to take a pee. I put on some binaural beats and drifted away until I had work at 8AM.

Keto sticks showed I was in ketosis after about 30 hours.

I weighed myself at about 30 hours and I was 178.5

I'm at work now at 45 and a half hours. Day is going well. I work a computer job so not to much strenuous shit going on. Thank god for that.

Feeling like a million bucks, excited to see that scale move!

Will follow with updates.

Day 8 night I was so tired. I tried to sleep but couldn’t. I was up until 11:30 which is only about and hour extra.
I had an okay morning I felt so tired again. I ended my fast at 2 pm. I was feeling tired and not great so I stopped. I broke with a bun less burger a bar next door and a side cole slaw. I may have had some dark chocolate from the candy dish at work too... :(

For dinner I had eggs, kale and goat cheese.

After dinner maybe around 9pm I got so dizzy I couldn’t stand. I wear a Fitbit. My heart rate went up to 107. I sat and watched a show with my husband. After the show I got dizzy brushing my teeth. I slept fine.

So far this morning I feel fine.

Morning weight: 116.4
Breakfast morning weight: 117.4

This is officially my longest fast. I’ve done two 5 day and one 7 day before. With many 1-2 in between as I wanted. I’ve been fasting since the beginning of August.

Work was insanely busy. I couldn’t eat if I wanted. I didn’t take a lunch break and I stayed late. Luckily I have a desk job.

I feel fine. My husband is making tacos for the kids and I don’t want any. I’m tired and I want to rest as much as possible tonight.

Morning weight: 117.4

Also my lowest weight. I’ve never dipped below 120.

Day 6 was fine. I wanted to break but it was probably boredom because work was slow. I went for a walk. I’ve dreamt of eggs. Eggs with goat cheese and tomato. Eggs with spinach an other veggies. I wrote my cravings down. I’ll revisit those when I break.

Day 7 perfect. Work was insanely busy I went for a walk to avoid it for a bit. The smell of the bar next door made me disgusted as did another Italian place that fries practically everything. People walking out were obese. More motivation. Very high energy and productive all day. No cravings. I made my family dinner, and blueberry muffins with coconut flour for breakfast. I love staying busy and cooking while I fast.

Weight day 6: 120
Weight day 7: 118.6

Today was super easy. The only issue was social. My coworker asked if I would get lunch with her since he car was in the shop. I told her she can order wherever and I’ll go get it but I wasn’t too hungry yet and I didn’t know what I wanted. She ended up ordering delivery. She had onion rings and what looked like a steak sandwich. I didn’t ask because I didn’t want her to ask what I ended up getting.

Other than that no issues. I felt so energized and fantastic all day. I had tons of energy to make my kids dinner after work too.

This morning’s weight was disappointing 1.1 loss. Weight was 121. I’m going to blame the miso soup but also recognize there are so many other benefits! Including saving money not ordering lunch. I have $30 burning a hole in my wallet right now. I don’t know what to buy for myself. :)
