I am a 6’2” male weighing 264 at the start of my fast. By day five I was 247.5. I am on a day six of my fast. I am a bit discouraged today. According to my scale this morning I did not lose any weight the previous day. I am still 247.5 pounds. Also I am having all kinds of alarmist thoughts and I feel a bit nauseous today. My mood is gloomy.
I am also working and there is some stress from that direction. I have been coming to work all trough my fast (even on weekends) and I have been staying overtime.
I did not designate a specific day on which I will quit my fast, but I was thinking of fasting at least three weeks.
I am determined to see this trough. If Christian Bale can go down to 130 pounds by eating apples, drinking coffee and smoking cigarettes, than I could become a bit less obese by fasting few weeks.
Originally my plan was to fast for only three days to cleanse my body for a little bit, but after three days is when more serious fat burning occurs and after 11 days is when ketosis occurs. The reason why I started fasting was because I was suffering from anxiety and heartburn and I thought that fasting would help me with those. But now I would also like to come down to the healthier weight, because my weight is probably the root of all my physical and mental problems. The way that I was going, something drastic had to be done, so now I am fasting.
I am determined to keep fasting. No way am I going back to my old self. Still I do feel a bit down.
