Thanks for the words of encouragement!
After my previous fast, I came to learn that my body can't eat the way I used to. It's just a reality- I havent eaten really poorly in a longtime- Mac D's would be like poison to me now-
I do take under consideration the starvation instinct to hold on to the fat- I't could very well be a factor in my 'brick wall' realistically I may have to accept 209 this time around and continue from there. As of late, I have been more physically active, but nothing that will tear down my muscles so that they dont require the protein. I'm hoping that my increased activity will boost my metabolism and therfore get me back on a downward trend.
If I do start anareobics, I will need to put proteins in my body for my muscles to feed on, So I do need to locate that 'delicate' balance that will get the downward trend happening.
I have faith that the answer is out there somewhere in the meantime, I'm really in no big rush to get out among the poor eaters again. I will take it easy with whole foods, a couple of days at a time and see how my body reacts.
