Hello!

Last week's fasting helped break the stall (gain) I was on. It put me back into ketosis and the weight I had gained with "lazy keto" starting dropping again. I am thrilled to be back on the losing side as far as the scale goes - I had never stopped losing inches; but I still want to win that battle with the scale. That damned scale. Funny how a number there affects my self worth.

I am 12 hours deep into my second 48 hour fast. It seems much easier this time and not so daunting. I am better prepared, though. I already know what I am fixing for the family tonight when I can't eat; plus, I already know what I have to break the fast. I have planned a pork roast to break the fast tomorrow night. It will be soooo tasty.

So, fasting. I didn't really like it, but the benefits are bringing me right back again this week. I already noticed an improvement in my loose skin. Crazy, I know; but it is true. It is measurable, too. My kids were shaming me over my baggy pants, so I had to get "new" pants on Saturday (I am a thrift shop person so that I can manage all the sizes I have been through on this journey). Victories all around!

Here is to the next round of baggy pants shaming!! Bring it on!

Weight plateau again this week. It happens. I know it does; but it doesn't make it any easier when you are going through it.

Victories:
1.) Eating more calories than I have in the past 2-1/2 years (unless I was cheating and gaining lbs!!) and not gaining weight. My monthly average was over 1800 calories per day and that included three 24+ hour fasts.
2.) Feeling great, sleeping better, moods are not all over the place anymore.
3.) Not hungry!
4.) Inches are still going down. You know it is working when you are forced to buy new undergarments! :)

Challenges:
1.) It is so hard to eat out! I went to places over the weekend where I just couldn't eat what they had - carbs, carbs everywhere and not a clean fat to eat!
2.) Knee pain - I stressed my knee and now I am struggling with fluid retention. I will talk to the trainer and see if he can help me. I stopped going to the gym and have been settling on walking instead. I don't know if that is helping or hindering at this point.

Resolution:
1.) Get back into the gym this week after consulting with the trainer.
2.) If gym workouts re-start weight loss - wahoo! If not, wait two weeks and go back to fasting 1-2 days per week.

This is such a process. Keep hanging in there FS!
