Hi everyone. So I've done water fasting before and I've found that i really enjoyed it.
The last fast I did was 90 days, in groups of 30, giving myself a week in between. At first i didn't set out to do it, I actually had surgery and couldn't eat and I noticed I felt so much better not eating. I lost weight, My skin cleared up I stopped having back pain, migraines and my IBS felt as if it were cured. So I kept going.
The past few years though, I've gone back to a really unhealthy life style. I lost my job, moved state and started drinking a bottle of vodka every 1-2days and just eating pure junk food. At 5'2 I've gained up to 250lbs, I'm having trouble breathing when I walk and my back and knees are constantly in pain. So far, these past 2 weeks I've started eating raw. I've lost a lot just from that, I'm feeling a little better but I'm finding I'm tired a lot. I drank twice during the last week and I'm a little disappointed in myself.
I'm hoping what I will get out of this fast is a new outlook on life and food. I'm hoping it will help me change my lifestyle and hopefully it will help me stop drinking alcohol. I'd like to do a 120day fast. In periods of 30days at a time. I'm on day 2 and I figured it would be a good idea to post my experiences as I go along. Not sure if I've posted this in the right place though, but i will keep updates on how I feel, the symptoms I'm dealing with and my weight and measurements. A friend also gave me keto sticks, not sure if i should use them? No idea why she gave them to me to be honest.
Day 1. 243lbs, Waist 115cm/45inch, Chest 130cm/51inch.
Feeling hungry, stomachs rumbling but I'm still full of energy.
Day 2. 239lbs, Waist 114cm/45inch, Chest 130cm/51inch
I went for an 8km/5mile walk this morning. I was tired when i got back, i slept until late. I'm no longer getting stomach cramps, I'm getting a little acid re flux though, but that's happened before. I may not update every day, but i will try to update weekly. I'm keeping a daily journal in hopes it shows how my body reacts each day.
Day 3. 237lbs, Waist 114cm, Chest 130cm
I did 21,000steps today, i felt really good and full of energy. Sadly my foot is now in a lot of pain. Not sure if it's the fast or if it's my old injuries playing up again.
Day 4. 235.2lbs, Waist 108cm Chest 129.5cm
Feel okay today, A little tired, foot is still really sore. I've only done about 11,000steps, i'm thinking i should really be resting my foot. I couldn't sleep until 6am. I've been feeling really restless at nights and it's bothering me a little. I would like to know if i should be on any supliments and which ones I should be on.
Day 5. 233.2lbs, Waist 110cm, Chest 128cm
Feeling really good. I took Ibuprofin for my foot and it's all better now. I didn't really want to take anything for it but it was getting pretty bad. I had a small headache when i woke up but i think it's from not drinking enough.
Day 6. 231lbs, Waist 109cm, Chest 127cm
Walked 10km and felt fine. I think the only real issue I'm having is that I'm still have trouble sleeping. I have a lot of engery but at the same time i have periods where my mind is very clouded.
I'm not used to this site, so i'm going to try to start a blog and I will continue to update there! I should hopefully be able to make it public if anyones interested on what's happening.
