Posts Tagged ‘56/63’

The end of day thirty-one and the start of day thirty-two…
Morning weight:  317lbs.
I am now down “56/63”.  As in, 56lbs down from my fasting start weight: 373lbs, and 63lbs down from my highest weight ever (two days before I started the fast): 380lbs.  Today’s loss is a 1lb loss, down from 318lbs yesterday.
I started this fasting on Friday, 27 July 2018.  Today is Monday, 27 August 2018.  At noon today, I completed a full calendar month of veggie-juice / fruit juice fasting.  I don’t remember if any of my prior 30 day fasts were on thirty day months or if this is a “first” because of the 31 days in July.  Either way, I’m proud of the accomplishment and I’m looking forward to finishing and moving on to the next stage – the lifestyle change and continuing to get healthier.
I gave blood today.  I should get the results sometime Wednesday or Thursday.  I also met with my urologist.  He says it’s confirmed I have a 6mm non-obstructive stone in my left kidney.  He recommends blasting it and trying to shortcut it getting bigger or it trying to come out on it’s own.  He said it’s possible to pass it, but it would be extremely painful.  I said, “Let’s get it done!”  He will try to have it scheduled for next week.  Fingers crossed…  I gave a urine sample while I was at the urologist.  I got the automated results and all tests came back normal and successful.  (So the fasting isn’t affecting my urine.)  This was a bit of a surprise as I have tested positive for blood in my urine for almost 15-20 years.  Trace amounts most of the time, but still positive.  I guess whatever was causing the bleeding has fixed itself for a while.  The urologist also said to stop my aspirin regimen in advance of the procedure next week.  He wants to make sure the aspirin has cleared my system.  I asked about possible clotting and he said he felt it is only a minor risk.  If I go into AFib, the lithotripsy procedure will be canceled.
Last night I watched the movie: “Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead” for a little inspiration.  It worked.  I’m psyched up to make it through the rest of this week.  Again, I have a colonoscopy on Thursday, so the current plan is to continue the fast through Friday and break fast on Saturday, 1 October.
