Posts Tagged ‘24/31’

The end of day sixteen and the start of day seventeen…
Morning weight:  349lbs.
I’ve broken under 350lbs!  The scale is bouncing between 349 and 346, so I am being conservative.  I am now down “24/31”.  As in, 24lbs down from my fasting start weight: 373lbs, and 31lbs down from my highest weight ever (two days before I started the fast): 380lbs.  Today’s loss is a 1lb loss, down from 350lbs yesterday.
Today I did some research:  3,500 kcals equals 1 pound of weight.  To lose 1 pound in a week (which is considered the “safe” rate of loss), you need to have a calorie deficit of 500 per day (average).  For me, this means about a 60-90 dog walk per day, based on 200 kcals per 30 minutes (600 kcals).  For me to continuously lose a pound a day, I have to have that much (3,500 kcals) burned in excess to what I am drinking (in veggie juice and fruit juice calories).  And this is why it is so difficult to lose weight…
Having made it through the weekend, my immediate goal is to make up another batch of veggie juice (tomorrow) to make it through to Friday noon which will then complete three(3) weeks.  Ideally, I’ll drop another 3 to 5lbs by then, which will put me in the 345lbs range.  That’s only 21 days!  LOL  My four(4) longest fasts have all been 30 day fasts.  That seems an eternity from standing at only 16 days…  So I’ll focus on tomorrow and getting to Friday (instead).
