Posts Tagged ‘Day 35: Juice Fasting’

The end of day thirty-five and the start of day thirty-six…  Week 5 completed!!
Morning weight:  313lbs.
No weight change since yesterday.  I am still down “60/67”.  As in, 60lbs down from my fasting start weight: 373lbs, and 67lbs down from my highest weight ever (two days before I started the fast): 380lbs.  Today’s loss is the second time in one week (just five days) in which I’ve had a plateau.
As expected, the plateaus had to start happening more frequently…  The question is: what is the reason?  That’s hard to guess-ti-mate.  It could be because I had the colonoscopy yesterday and I celebrated with a banana / strawberry smoothie.  It could be the meds from the colonoscopy artificially reduced my weight by increasing my water loss for the two days.  It could be that I didn’t go for my swims the last two days – so fewer calories burned.  Or, it could just be it was time for a plateau.  There is really no way to tell.  All I can do is wait to see if the weight loss starts again or if the plateau holds for another day.  I can say my tummy is still not “right” and I didn’t have my daily “BM”.  So I won’t be surprised if my weight goes UP tomorrow morning.  I guess that too is to be expected.  LOL
Today, my wife went to the supermarket and bought me a medium size watermelon to break my fast with tomorrow after noon.  Alternatively, I can juice it and try for a few more days to see how it goes.  The week coming up looks pretty quiet, so I am torn about continuing or not.  At the moment, I’m leaning towards continuing day-by-day and see how it goes.  This is what makes plateaus hard.  If I was still dropping weight every day, the decision to continue would be easy (well, easier) —  I’d just keep going.  I guess I’ll just have to see how I feel in the morning.  Decisions, decisions…
