Last day IF, tomorrow EF from FastingMama's log

How timely to find and join this fasting site just as I was looking for accountability/community for my extended fast tomorrow when the kids go back to school.

All summer my EFs have turned into daily IFs because I will make one of my kids a snack/lunch, etc and then decide to join them with a cheese stick or hard salami.  Then I get so annoyed with myself and just eat the rest of the day.  

It is SO hard for me to cook for my large family every day and smell the cooking food and then not eat it.  I am coming into this EF a little frustrated with myself that I have actually gained weight this summer even with no breakfast/lunch and IF'ing usually around 16:8 days.  Some 72 hour fasts, many 40 hour fasts.


So 9/5/2017 I will embark on my longest EF to date.  No end date scheduled yet.  I want to experience autophagy, this supposed euphoria, freedom from eating, etc.  I want my body to heal from my Hashimoto's and lose some BF in the process.
