I am new to the program. I do not understand why you fasted for 11 days. That is not healthy!!!

@Lashburn - I thought the same until I tried it. Take a look at this: The Stages of Fasting: What Happens To Your Body When You Fast? https://bit.ly/2FRr5jx

@Lashburn, since you're new I just want to let you know that the community here actively tries to not make discouraging comments about other people's diets. You'll see lots of people trying lots of different things that you may or may not agree with, depending on where they're at in life and their relationship with food. Adefwebserver actually had a great post yesterday about what he learned about himself and his relationship with food during the course of his fast, and if you focus on how you don't agree with how someone else is dieting, you're going to miss a lot of really good stuff.

So cool you finished your fast. Think of all the great things your body is doing, giving it time to repair. Look forward to your checking back in!

Our bodies don't always make sense in the moment, but give it a little time and it'll come around. Enjoy your vacation!

@Toumina, @Steven Anthony, @Becc@ - Thank you for the support. Also, I plan to hit the resort gym each day. Our flight doesn't leave until tonight so I am off on a 5 mile run :)

Same. Fast all day, drink water, walk for miles, lose .2! I think our bodies are wired with a delayed timer switch! But you did outstanding with this extended fast. And the mental milestones you've reached far exceed the scale numbers. Now enjoy that vacation with glee & gratitude!

@MillaLite - Haha that makes me feel better. Weird thing, so I ate oatmeal to break my fast (I know horrible choice for a number of reasons). Afterwards I was like "eating is over rated". I now have food in my stomach that has to be digested. I feel a blood sugar spike that I will later have to pay for. Worst thing is that I now feel real hunger again. I swear if not for the vacation (and multiple planned dinners with friends while we are there) I would just restart the water only fast. If I can't feel the emotional pleasure of eating a Double-Quarter Pounder with cheese (this would put me in the hospital if I tried it right after my fast) why am I back to eating again?? :) Oh well I am just venting. I plan to list weights then go for a 5 mile run after it warms up a bit...

Be mindful of what you are eating, but don’t over think it. You are on vacation, so enjoy !πŸŒ΄πŸŒžπŸ–

@Highland Heather - Mindfulness is very important, I agree. I tried to be mindful with me first meal this morning. It made the small meal better, but I have a lot of room for improvement because I still gulped down the remaining food because once I started eating the feeling of hunger set in. When that happens, my reaction is "Must feel full right now!" If I were more mindful, I would see that I am actually not about to starve and that this feeling of hunger will pass.
