Weak, But Motivated

Hello, day 4. I feel weak, but motivated. I saw 164.5 on the scale this morning, bringing me to -8.5 for three days of fasting. That's amazing. I am feeling better about continuing to day 5. After all, I have done three days .. I am over the hump.
Thoughts/effects of fasting now: I am noticing how lethargic I am about little things. Picking up the labtop seemed like a major task. Yesterday, I did not walk. Heck, I felt too lazy to go get water. I find that it goes in spurts, and also, that I feel it most pronounced when I actually sit or lay down. Once I do that, I notice how happy I'd be to just keep sitting or laying. Last, as I mentioned to begin with, weight loss is my primary (perhaps only) motivation. However, although I was skeptical, I do see where this becomes a very introspective, and emotionally introspective time for folks, almost zenful. For me, this has come in the form of facing problems. Namely, the difficulties that I am having at work. When you are not fasting, you make due, and continue to work at things just because you always have. When you are fasting, you need to pick and choose the MOST important things that deserve your energy. This process has fortified my resolve that my office is just not the right environment for me, and that even if I temporarily have to demote, I can see progress in just leaving.
That said, however, I am at work today.. so until evening!:)
