Day 3 of planned 3 days of eating

Can't wait to get back on the 5 day fast tomorrow. However, I almost cancelled it. After a 1 hour run in the hot sun, my weight dropped down to 171! This is a 9 pound drop in one week. If I was even 172 this morning I would feel I need to allow my body to "rest" and "restore". However, today I "only" have a 6 pound drop for the week. Still a lot, but I have had that before and been fine when I continued to fast.

I finally got the courage to change my goal weight from 170 to 164 (normal BMI).

Bought a new scale on Amazon that should get here Monday. I decided I wanted to have other things to measure other than just my weight.

My wife @PrincessValerie decided to start tracking her meals on Fat Secret, so we are now a Keto/Fat Secret/Fasting (Intermittent/Extended) household! :)
174.0 lb Lost so far: 33.0 lb.    Still to go: 10.0 lb.    Diet followed reasonably well.

@baskington - Once I hit my goal weight, I need something to track. This scale has so many 'numbers' it supposedly tracks (https://amzn.to/2JM5x8b) I am just hoping to see one move in the desired direction each day :)

@jengetfit123 - I drank so much water yesterday I went from 171 back up to 174 :)

@VAM49 - I asked her to join 6 months ago and she said no :( She agreed to create an account last week because, she decided to start Keto and wanted to see other's diets (you can't see a person's diet without an account). Then yesterday she decided to start using it for tracking.

when you say 5 day fast you eat no food for 5 days?

That much of a drop would be scary, but I know nothing of such things. Oh, wait, yes I do, when I gave birth to my babies. Does that count? So looking forward to hear how you and your wife, @PrincessValerie are working together for improved health. Go team _____!!! You need a team name! 😊 You're doing great. So maintenance is next for you?

Great, we are going to see her soon. That is wonderful that both of you are working together, it's hard for me because I am by my own here

@Peggymcm - Yes :) However, it took me months to work up to it. When you normally diet you are trying to get your body to burn stored fat. When fasting you are simply forcing your body to do that all day. However, I STILL take in carbs through the liquids I drink. My body will use the carbs for energy, and if I am not careful, and consume too many carbs, it will store them as fat.

Nice drop - some will be water weight - do you take plenty of salt? 
22 Jul 18 by member: minitata
@minitata - I am willing to call 'mostly water weight' :) Yes plenty of salt today (my 'Hi-Lyte Electrolyte Concentrate' is SUPER salty)
