Starting again tomorrow!   13 y  
It's been a long while since I posted. I'm sure that it's not hard to guess why.
Well, I haven’t been posting because I haven’t been fasting. I decided that I would just try to eat healthy and exercise. So, I started exercising a lot, and wouldn’t ya know it...I haven’t lost any weight. My clothes are fitting better, which I know is supposed to make me feel better. What is it about the number on the scale that makes me feel like a failure? I want to lose weight, so I am going to give water fasting another go. We’ll see what happens. I am going to post beginning stats tomorrow morning. Prayers and good vibes are appreciated, I know that I will need them. Emails are g ...   read more

Contemplating the EOD Fasting Method...   13 y  
This idea of fasting Every Other Day is something that I have been thinking about. Is this the way to keep one's metabolism from becoming sluggish?
Well, I walked/jogged on the treadmill; three miles in 56 minutes. I feel great now, having showered. I got pretty sweaty. I am wondering about target heart rate, I will have to research this. My heart monitor on my treadmill has me wondering what my heart rate should be. I am also contemplating the idea of EOD fasting again. I thought about this after the 7 day fast I went on, and failed miserably. I think that this method of fasting, or one similar to it, is the way to keep metabolism from taking a big dive. After all, my metabolism has always seemed a little sluggish anyway! I lik ...   read more

The Bloat is over!   13 y  
Feeling more like myself, I'm not as bloated as I have been for the past 5 (or so) days.
Starting Weight: 185.5 Today’s Weight: 179.0 Yippee! I think that things are getting back to normal. I’m still way behind as far as my weekly goals go, but oh well. I am still hoping to lose at least a total of 20 pound for the month of March, and I think that is still a possibility. I’m thinking that I will lay off the cardio for the week and just try to do some Pilates and Callanetics, maybe some light strength training. More Later, starry   visit the page

Lost a total of 5.5 pounds so far.   13 y  
The results so far aren't as glowing as I would have hoped, but at least it's something.
Well, I’ve been on the go most of the day. Nothing really new to report except that I weighed myself this morning and I’m down to 180. I’m hoping that since I’m almost done with my period that the weight will come off faster. More later, starry   visit the page

I ate something!   13 y  
I slipped, cheated, failed; whatever you want to call it, it happened. Where do I go from here?
Well, I ate 1.5 breadsticks and one piece of sausage off a slice of pizza. This is was Day 9 for me, but I didn’t complete it. I got some upsetting news about a family member, and my family was eating pizza. I just felt like, there’s so many more important things in life than obsessing about weight. So, I ate...not a lot because I know better. Eating more than what I did would have given me a bad stomach pains. Now, I am regretful. The last time this happened, I just said screw it and started eating normally, right then. But I don’t want to do that. So, instead of saying that I’m on Day ...   read more

Pampering myself, sort of.   13 y  
I can't afford to go to a spa, but I can pretend.
Well, I decided that I needed to do a little self-improvement. I guess that it’s a little superficial, o.k. it’s a lot superficial. I bought some hair dye, and some new styling products. So, I dyed my hair and put Queen Helene Mint Julep mask on my face in an attempt to clear up these zits that I keep getting!! I also bought some Crest White Strips (a splurge!). So I was in the tub with my hair dye-ing, mask on my face and white strips on my teeth. I looked ”quite the sight”, I’m sure. It was nice to work on the things that I can change to make myself feel better. I feel really relaxed ...   read more

Keeping the faith.   13 y  
Sometimes faith is all we have.
No time to exercise tonight, even if I wanted to. I went shopping and stopped for a drink with a few friends (Diet Coke)lol! It was nice as I have not been out of the house lately. There ended up being a lot of people there. I was a little self conscious though, partially because I have Social Anxiety Disorder. I didn’t dress up because I was just expecting to pick up a few things from Target when I got the call that a friend that I hadn’t seen in a year was going to be up at the local ”hole in the wall”. I went anyway though, which is good for me. I cooked again earlier this evening. I ...   read more

I'm discouraged!!!   13 y  
I know that the weight will come off if I persist...but I'm discouraged.
O.K. I’m trying not to get depressed about only losing 4 pounds in a week. I mean, 4 pounds is something. It’s better than mothing or even just a couple pounds. I really want to lose at least 20 pounds this month. I’m starting to wonder if it’s going to be possible. I still want to exercise too, because I want to exercise after the fast. I wanted to get started on the habit of exercise, as it will be an important part of maintaining ANY weight loss. If I just fast for a month or so and then I start exercising, it’s going to be hard to stay motivated, for me anyway. I really think tha ...   read more

O.K., I am discouraged.   13 y  
I must press on, that's all I can do; but I am disappointed.
I’m really disappointed. I didn’t even really want to post, but I need to make a plan, and to do this I need to think about the situation. There’s so many variables at work here, it’s hard to narrow it down. But if I don’t try to figure out the various reasons why the Fast isn’t living up to my expectations, then I can’t be pro-active and decide how I’m going to work to be successful. Variables: *Possibly not drinking enough water, because it feels as though my body is holding onto water. *I exercised all week, so maybe I shouldn’t be exercising on the fast. *I started my pe ...   read more

Weigh In and Stats   13 y  
Sometimes you just know when you haven't lost very much weight.
Start Weight: 185.5 Todays Weight: 181 Waist was: 34 now: 33 Hips was: 42 now: 40.5 Bust was: 42 now: 41 Thigh was: 24 now: 22.5 Bicep was: 14 now: 13 calf was: 15 now: 15   visit the page

Looking forward/scared about the weigh-in tomorrow.   13 y  
Should I weigh-in or give it another week?
I know that I am both excited and apprehensive about weighing myself tomorrow. I don’t even know if I feel like I have lost any weight, since I have ”period bloat”. Maybe the period bloat would disguise any weight loss that has occured. I could just do measurements, but if I’m bloated that won’t make much a difference anyway. I’m winding down Week One here and I don’t feel that much different really. I don’t want to get discouraged as I have quite a bit of time left. I know the coming week will be more difficult because my family is already prodding me to eat. Nobody really ”gets” fasti ...   read more

What day is this? I don't even know...:o)   13 y  
Is this my sixth day or my seventh? The days are blurring together.
My skin looks like HELL! I haven’t had this many breakouts since I was a teenager. I’m not used to zits, so this is a little un-nerving! I wonder if this is a de-tox symptom, or if it’s something in my environment. Is it from makeup, soap, sweat? I cooked a big lunch today. I really didn’t have the desire to eat any of it. I am pretty nonchalant about food today. The desire to eat comes and goes. I’m not too tired today, which is good. I am very curious to weigh/measure myself. I’m wondering if I have lost weight and if I have, I hope that I have reached my goal. We’ll see. More l ...   read more
