I started out aiming to do a water only fast... honestly I could just not go without my coffee!! So I am on Day four drinking coffee with a splash of milk all day. I am 5'7" and started at 212lbs. Today I am 208lbs. Not bad... I did have to go to the doc yesterday because on day 2 I started with the white tongue and majorly swollen and painful lymph nodes in my neck. She gave me Antibiotics
, but I don't know that I should take them... I had prepared the week before the fast eating mostly veggies and about 650 calories a day. I have had no trouble with hunger but am worried today will be a hard one. I will be patiently waiting in the hospital waiting room for updates on my partner who will be in surgery. Stress eating... I really hope I can stay strong and not do it!!
I have fasted before up to 30 days and I really hope to make it at least that long this time around. We'll see. I was 275lbs at my highest and my ultimate goal is to just be "normal" on the bmi charts!! I see a few of you are a day ahead of me... love reading your posts!!
