The end of day thirty-nine and the start of day forty…
Morning weight:  320lbs.
I am now down “53/60”.  As in, 53lbs down from my fasting start weight: 373lbs, and 60lbs down from my highest weight ever (two days before I started the fast): 380lbs.  Today’s weight is a 2lbs decrease from yesterday’s 322lbs.
Once again the ferocious hunger monster was roaring today and I was sorely tempted to go out and stuff my face.  Doubt has started to creep back into my head and is whispering:  “Butter pop-corn, ribs, pizza, coconut cream pie…”  All I needed was a reason to leave the house.  Well, none came up, so I just stayed at home miserable and thinking about food.  While I was swimming, all I could think about was getting home and making veggie broth with my veggie juice roughage.  (I did and it was delicious!)
Seriously, as mentioned yesterday, the first three days of “fluid” fasting (as opposed to smoothies and blends) is the desire for solid food in your stomach.  I don’t mean “solid” like steak or pizza.  I mean other than that, as in non-chewed – which is what I had.  Two days ago I had a blend, so yesterday and today I’ve had to pay the price.  Hopefully, tomorrow won’t be soooo bad, or I’m afraid this stops at 40 days and it won’t be pretty.  Day to day…
As of this evening, my short term goal is tomorrow noon (end of 40 days).  My medium term goal is Friday noon (42 days- 6 weeks!).  And long term goal is however long it takes to get to 310lbs.  My best guess is five more days, if I can continue 2lbs a day losses for five more days (that would be Sunday or Monday noon).  Obviously, it would be longer if I hit a plateau or only drop a pound a day.
The looming question is: what’s next?  After the break fast period, that is…  What’s next?  For me, I think I’ll have to progressively transfer over to a “nutritarian” diet.  I know meat products are bad for me and I know I am addicted to them and I’m fairly certain that I will go “ape” if I completely stop eating them.   Some things just be that way…
So my first steps after the fast will be small and steady steps to continue losing weight by eating healthier and working out more.  My local pool will be closing whenever the weather turns in October, so I’ll have to either start working out at home or join the nearby Planet Fitness until the pool reopens in May of 2019.  And, once again, I’m getting ahead of myself…  LOL
