Day 43 in total, but day 9 of the renewed fast after 6 days break (intermezzo)
So... I've come a long way at this point - Am down to 155lbs, looking amazing - ideal weight for me is prob 145lbs, which seems quite thin looking at me at the moment - Haven't weighed that since my 20's and I'm going to be 38 next month so we'll see - Not really aiming for that, would be nice though - at any rate I know from experience that when I resume eating a good 5lbs at least will come back on right away - what I've found with the longer fasts though is that I do get 10 off or more and keep it off - long enough and big enough changes do lock in. Short fasts are great little experiences, detoxes etc and renew one - not do effective for any long term change in the body weight though.
I am feeling great - the 6 days of eating was a good thing in retrospect as it allowed me to renew my energy. I've felt great ever since and even during - one thing I noticed this fast which was completely new for me - was that even when I had that short break and ate for a few days - I didn't ever come down off the fast - I guess it must have been because I was so deep in it, and I didn't eat a lot - a few of those days were just a sushi roll once around early evening - so wouldn't have been much of an interruption - anyway, it's been 9 days of the renewed fast and I'm back up in energy, no struggles or issues, continuing on with a white tongue, detoxing - have broken through a new threshold - also the break seemed to push me past the sort of halt on the scales at 160lbs - starting it up again quickly brought on a transformation and that wall disappeared - now down to 150lbs and a very noticible change in how I look. Am looking another 7 years younger already in these last 5 or 6 days of the fast - feeling the way I want to feel, lighter - more flexibility coming in my Yoga easily, a lot has fallen away - overweight, stagnant, toxicity - still detoxing though, that's for sure - not juicing much at all these days, might have one or two juices a week - just don't really want them. Mostly live on cups of tea and mineral water with a little lemon essential oil. Cravings have pretty much disappeared in the sense of the desire for flavors even, my cravings now are more for a really top cup of tea - went out and bought tea leaves instead of tea bags and am going old school again - so much better - wonder now what was I thinking, seems I had completely forgotten the difference in quality.
Emotions seem to be the #1 trigger for cravings and fasting being a challenge - if dramas arise and one gets upset then there is this want to soothe the disturbances with flavor and food. I recognize this for what it is and know it will pass now when it does arise. Not sure how long I'll go for, really just being - day to day, no need to stop - feeling good so I'm continuing on, it's plain from my tongue that I am still detoxing and deriving benefit from the break in digestion. I'll just report in the log book from time to time and keep track of how it all goes :) Guess this is now officially my longest fast - I know I'll have to break in before Christmas as my siblings are coming from overseas then and will want to partake in meals with them at that time of being together - it's 29th Nov now, so that seems quite a long way off still at this point. My sister is not much of a supporter of my fasts, I do intend to be eating light and have embarked upon the new lifestyle of day on day off intermittent fasting.... Should be able to slip that by her without too much issue lol.
They're only here 5 days anyway - will be so good to see them as it's been a very long time.
Full moon today, might attempt some planting in the garden although it's a kind of heat wave day and might get too hot for me!
