Hi! Thought I'd post a little update as I'm quite far along in my fast now.
A patch of what I think is eczema on my ankle does look somewhat improved, but is still very visible. Face and back of hands look pretty much the same, but thankfully nothing has got worse during the fast. Sometimes I think the back of my right hand looks a bit better as it appears to sometimes have small patches of normal colored skin, but then as soon as it gets a bit colder it returns to how it was and I'm left wondering if I imagined it.
I have no desire to eat at present. In fact, the thought of eating kind of turns my stomach. Tongue is still very coated. I don't feel any symptoms that feel like my body is telling me to stop.
This might possibly go under the "way too much information" banner, but I actually had a large solid bowel movement on day 35. Wasn't expecting that, as nothing has moved since about day 2!
Weight loss has been about 6lbs a week for the last couple of weeks. As of day 35, I was down 38lbs. I haven't weighed myself since.
I'm kind of looking at stopping at around day 45, as even though I have a physical repulsion to the idea of eating at the moment, I don't want to cause danger to myself by going too long. I'll see what I feel like at that point.
Hope all other fasters are doing well too.
