End? of Mini Fast

So I have woken up today just before 9am. It is the weekend and usually I like to lie in a little, but whenever you are on a fast, and because I am so hungry, I tend to wake up earlier than usual. Which is good, as I can be lazy at times.
Did my usual weigh ins and have found I am 10st 4.4lbs (144.4lbs). That's an exact 2lb loss since yesterday, and a 3.4lbs loss in 2 days. Has immediately made me wonder if I should be continuing the fast instead of breaking it today as I am doing so well.
Yesterday evening we went to my sister-in-law's for a barbeque. It was raining so it was quite funny how they had the barbecue right next to their kitchen door! I reminded them that I am not eating after 5pm (as per my diet two weeks ago where I stopped eating all foods after 5pm) and they were amazed that I am able to do something like that. They kept asking don't I get hungry etc. They didn't force me to eat which was nice.
No one commented on how much weight I have lost (nearly 7lbs) which I am glad about as I purposely tied all my hair back so that it made my face look bigger! That way people will not start worrying about me just yet!
And oh, what an absolutely crap performance by England in their match against Algeria - 0-0. What a waste of time! I am not a football (soccer) fan really, but usually watch England matches, and then ultimately feel really disappointed as they manage to get themselves kicked out in all the tournaments!
Anyway, that aside, I had all my juice yesterday (was about 0.5 litres) as I sipped it in the evening at the barbecue to keep me from eating. It wasn't that tough because I kept thinking "I'm going to break my fast in a couple of hours and then I can eat". But I have done so well! I haven't been this weight for about seven months I think.
Today I am going to start off with juicing some leftover strawberries and blueberries. I also have apple, so on the way back from the gathering I might pick up some fruit to juice for tomorrow. That will be a mission, going to my parents. I rang my mum last night and she was saying to me "are you still starving yourself, you know that's really bad for you, don't try to be like the others" (my sister-in-law is naturally quite trim), which made me laugh. I said to her "you know I am 10 and a half stone mum? I need to be losing weight!" Then she said "okay, but don't go beyond 10 stone!". For an asian girl I am considered quite tall (5ft 4in/5ft 5in). And my mum always gets protective of me if I start losing weight as my husband again (it's the family gene) is quite trim also - noticeably so - and at the moment I weigh more than him! That cannot remain to happen!
Must get going now, as am going to a birthday party today and need to buy a present! I must learn to stop being so last minute! Also, I am oil pulling with sesame seed oil whilst I am typing this - so time to spit that out! I know they say you shouldn't do anything else when you are oil pulling, but I can't just stand around in the bathroom for 20 minutes doing nothing but swishing oil my mouth!
Until tomorrow...let's see how I do with juicing/eating today...
