Posts Tagged ‘62/69’

The end of day thirty-six and the start of day thirty-seven…
Morning weight:  311lbs.
I am now down “62/69”.  As in, 62lbs down from my fasting start weight: 373lbs, and 69lbs down from my highest weight ever (two days before I started the fast): 380lbs.  Today’s loss is a 2lbs loss, down from 313lbs yesterday.

Scale: 313lbs (Yesterday)

The image (above) shows me standing on the scale as described in a previous post with my heels and big toes together at “0” on the scale.   This is how I measured the 380lbs when I began the juice fast.  It does have a different weight than with my toes at other positions, but I felt it allowed me to more accurately repeat the weigh-in process to get a consistent measurement.  This differs from the earlier photo which showed my big toes at the “8” and “4” positions (at the forward edge of the black pads) due to a change in the scale getting moved.  I started at “0” and now am back to placement at “0”.
I got a fairly good night’s sleep, but I have been very tired and sore most of the day (back, shoulders and chest).  I’m not sure why.  Maybe I pushed too hard yesterday – only one day after the colonoscopy.  I feel like I’ve been in a boxing match and got pounded on.  I passed two grains (kidney stones) this afternoon, so the soreness might also be from them.  Otherwise, I am back to having a daily “BM”, so that’s a good thing, too.
I had a discussion with my wife about breaking the fast.  She says if I want to go on, she will support me, but she doesn’t want me to go indefinitely.  She’d prefer if I would stop after one more week.  I said I would prefer to try for two more weeks as that would make an even fifty day fast.  She says she feels that would be pushing it too far and she is concerned about my health.  I said I have a doctor’s appointment at the end of this month and we can get a opinion from her (my primary care physician), then.  In the mean time, I’ll be seeing my urologist for my kidney stones and getting a blood workup for my cardiologist.  Hil asked me how I feel “in myself”.  I said except for today’s tiredness, I feel like I’m ten years younger.  I then admitted I am thinking about food a LOT more the last few days.  She replied she knows because I’m talking about food a lot more, too.  (Me thinks the final curtain draws near folks…)
So, Hil went to the market and bought me another batch of veggies to make more juice.  Tomorrow, I will be busy with that:  veggie juice prep and ginger / mint tea prep.  Day by day and see how I feel next Thursday / Friday…  This will be our first Labor Day without a BBQ in many years…  😦
