How are you doing? It should be day 13 for you, which is 1 day away from 2 whole weeks, and 2 days from being half way to your goal. Don't give up. You are doing great! I thought about ending mine early, but my boyfriend told me to just to do it one more day and then reevaluate. I am so grateful that he told me that, because I am finally in the 120's. I would never have been if he hadn't done that for me.
Oh, and I wanted to let you know that for my first fast, my weight loss was substantial at first, and then it slowly tapered off by the end. So at first I was losing 2 lbs a day, then 1lb, then by half way, it was just a 1/2lb, and then by the end it was 1/4lb. So don't get discouraged if you aren't seeing the weight loss that you did at the beginning. I think my largest weigh in was ~200lbs.
But, after I lost the weight, I gained ~2-5lbs just from having substances in my digestive system. Then about 4-6 weeks later, I started dropping again, and I ended up dropping another 40lbs. Now, my main thing was that I REFUSED to go back to eating the way I used to eat, because it was THAT food that made me fat. (What is the definition of insanity? Doing the same thing over and over again expecting a different outcome each time.)
So I had done a mainly raw diet, which can be extreme to some people. But today I only eat fish, fruits and vegetables. The only grains I eat are gluten-free grains such as quinoa and millet, which are awesome. The only reason I started gaining the weight back was because of my excessive wine drinking (empty calories), cheeses (oh how I will miss those), and chocolate. Dave Ramsey once said, "If you want to be rich, watch how a rich person spends; if you want to be thin, watch how a thin person eats." I also learned, "If you want to be be thin, watch how a thing person eats, and then compare it to how a fat person eats." Really. If you go to a party or to a restaurant, be diligent about finding a large person and a small person. Watch and compare. It's astounding. Anyway, I need to copy this and put it into my blog...lol.
Hope you are doing well!
