today was weigh in day and i have only lost one pound in 5 days. that brings me to a total of 16 pound. i really thought i would be closer to 20 pound. yeah yeah i know dont get to caught up in the numbers it is how you feel. but i thought i would lose a total of 30 pounds by the end of this fast and now i am looking at being lucky to lose 20. when i first saw the numbers i was not happy but then i thought this is probably not a bad thing. i know the only true way to lose weight and maintain it is a long slow steady process. bascially you have to eat less adn move more. if i lost a lot of weight by fasting it would probably not all stay off and also i would be temptd to see it as a quick fix. i really wanted a good start to my long term goal and i feel i have that. i wouldve liked the 30 pounds dont get me wrong and i wanted that shock value of losing a quick 30 pounds "oh my god you have lost soooo much weight" type thing. but i am motivated to keep losign and to change my lifestyle. so that is not too shabby at all.
i have decided to write myself a program for post fast for the next 30 days. this is going to be a diet and exercise program - something for me to stick to. i think this will work better for me than just eating random. also if i know what is expected each day i am better at completing it. also i am going to take measurements and retake each week. as long as these go down regardless of scales i should be on track.
i have being havign some thoughts lately on what is my ideal weight. to be honest i really dont know. i know what i weighed when i was really thin but i dont think this is realistic in maintaining it. i also know what i was when i was too big but i dont really have a number to put to where i want to be for the rest of my life. so i am going to have to go by jean's. i had a pair of jeans that i always felt great in. i threw them out becasue i havent been able to wear them comfortable for four years. but now i need to find a pair of these jeans. then when i can wear these and feel good thats my goal weight whatever the scale says.
