Day 5 of a planned 5 day fast

WOOSH! Three pound loss in one day :)

Finally got the biggest drop ever. Also my lowest weight ever. The last time I was 175lbs. I was 3 inches shorter and I was in Jr. High School.

Interesting day yesterday. I was having one of those days where 'nothing was going the way I wanted' and a 'bunch of people came at me at one time' demanding things I could not deliver, and I decided to feel sorry for myself.

Normally this would have been a 1-2 'Bag of Cheetos' moment (300 calories 26 carbs). However, when on a fast I don't break the fast, so I decided to have one of my Keurig flavored coffees (70 calories 11 carbs).

After I drank it, I was really upset at myself because Thursday is normally my biggest weight loss day (it is day 4 of my fast - this is why I always say that, for me, fasting less than 3 days is like having s#x without an org##m :))

Anyway, I went into Fat Secret to put in the calories and carbs (the carbs are the problem, I was suppose to be <5 for the day). My carbs were up to 27 carbs! Now I was really upset. Then I saw that most of those carbs were from what I 'planned' to drink later that night. So all I had to do was delete that and then I was back to 12 carbs. Yay!

I get home and check my glucose level and I was down to 73 (yay!). I get on the scale and I was 176lbs. I have had my weight go up overnight before so I took that with a 'grain of salt' (water water everywhere!).

My goal this weekend is <20 carbs. I hope to not gain any weight this weekend but I will not be surprised if my body decides to rebel for another month no matter what I do.

Have a great day everyone! ...and please, please be kind to yourself :) The fact we can obsess about weight together is a blessing... or a curse... I'm not sure :)

@mrsroboto - Thanks! Unexpected at my current weight. I wont be surprised if it takes me until September to get back to this number again. My body has never held on to a huge drop without 'recovery'.

Good morning, whooosh! I love it when I can delete what I haven't eaten to keep carbs low. Congratulations!

Well you never know, this could be the time the recovery isn’t necessary. ❤️ I’m discovering new things about my body everyday, it’s almost scary. Just when I think I’ve figured it out, it changes things up on me! LOL

@jenjabba - Thank you! So embarrassed I sat there for like 5 minutes bummed out before I realized that 'Wait! I'm fasting! I don't HAVE to consume ANYTHING!" I keep forgetting I have the CHOICE to simply not consume any food or carbs, period.

@mrsroboto - I sooo hope that is the case! But, you know, so I don't get bummed out if I stall or gain, I'm being 'pessimistic' :)

I get it, I get it! Gotta keep the expectations reasonable!

Wow - well done.

@nikeit - Thanks! Basically I cannot 'control' my eating (I have little to no 'self control') but I am able to 'not eat' (I 'surrender' to the fact that I cannot even 'attempt' to control my eating). I know that sounds weird. Did not know it was true for me until I tried it.

Awesome drop and well earned!

You need a sign - “Caution - fasting in progress - proceed at your own risk” maybe that will keep people from making unreasonable demands!!!

@cynthiasoto - Haha! The ironic thing is that by day three I get into this 'calm zone' (this is a known byproduct f fasting) where things don't affect me as much, and I am calmer than normal. However, they were REALLY hitting me hard yesterday. Yet, the ONLY thing I did was drink 11 carbs I should not have :)
