Day 1 of a planned 2 days of β€˜water fasting’
Blood sugar 98 mg/dL

Yesterday I ate *EPIC proportions of food*. I had a blast. I’m good for the rest of the month 😊

I know my journal is constantly filled with bitching and moaning so it may appear that all my fasting is not actually working. It *is working* 😊

It allows me to continue lifting weights without getting fat (What Every Weightlifter Should Know About Glycogen) 😊

I need glycogen in my muscles to lift heavy, and the way I get that glycogen *in* my muscles is to consume carbs. For an insulin resistant person such as myself, consuming a ton of carbs will make me fat (note: I have 9 months of solid data posted on this site, plus my results from yesterday, to back this up).

So, I β€˜water fast’ and β€˜no solid food fast’ to *balance out* the gains and to allow myself to continue to lift weights. Yesterday, I was able to hit the WEIGHTS and πŸ‹πŸΎ lift heavy 😊

Now, I start the fast again 😊

😎 Life is Good! Have a great day everyone!

@liv001 - Thank you for the kind words! I will admit that the shot is a bit 'blurry' so it makes me 'look' a bit better than the other shots that were 'clearer' Haha! Also, I left my shirt on because I'm 10 pounds above my BMI weight and my 'abs have gone into hiding' :)

@Keilin_4 - Yeah, without my current lifestyle I would be very obese. Since I turned 50 years old, loosing weight and gaining muscle have gotten WAY harder. I wish I had adopted this lifestyle back when I was in my 30's... oh well :)

@Kaylinrenee -- sorry to hear that! people misunderstand fasting

@kaylinrenee - Look back on my journals from 9 months ago. They attacked me so hard there would be nearly 100 'comments' on my posts. However, I was 49 years old, about to turn 50 years old, so my 'Motivation' was very strong. I DID NOT want to continue to be fat all my life. I was inspired by guys like @Phil who showed that the way you deal with 'bullying behavior' is to simply stand up to it. So, I simply told them that I would be an F'ING IDIOT to listen to them :) - - Now that I have --RESULTS-- they know I am 'laughing' at anything they say to me :) - - In the end, it is up to *us* (the person being criticized) to not listen to this TOTALLY POINTLESS criticism of our eating choices. So, ultimately it is on us... Also, I have been motivated to help others like me. At te CORE of all this is that 90%= of te people like me will NOT lose weight and will die an early death. Period. If I can help some of them, this is what I must do. But, I can only help them by showing them results. Proof, FACTS not OPINIONS. Good Luck!

Wow!!! Amazing!!!! I totally get what you do. As a woman who went 50 came, carbs killed me. Every holiday season I give in and end up going up 5-7 lbs. The bullies, you just have to ignore. I have seen them attack, for as many years as I am on here. Need to get into a fasting mode one of these days soon.

Great work! It's so nice to see when people figure out their individual needs, what works best for their own body. Because we're all very different.
