It almost does not feel that I have been fasting for this long. I feel much stronger then my previous fast which lead me in the hospital due to the flu.
I drink a lot of water. Yet my urine is still on the dark side. It must have to do with the weight ratio. I drink whenever I feel thirsty, fatigue, faint, or just plain dry mouth. It is usually about 80 ounces per day. The additional fluids feel normal and never feel like I am stuffing myself with liquids. Most of it feels like it absorbs and then a portion expels naturally.
Since fasting I have mentioned that I indulge in pampering myself. It has helped so much in my willpower and the overall feeling. I looked back at an old fast I did eight years ago which was successful to completion and found I pampered myself a lot. Actually any success I have I focused on loving myself. Made a huge difference.
By the way I have already filled on whole binder with recipes from various websites. It has gotten a bit excessive.
I did not sleep last night. But instead of moving around, burning precious energy I decided to lay down just relax. Sometimes I felt anxious and other times I slept for a few minutes. The overall results was when I finally ‘woke’ up I felt refresh. I think this is important to note that even if you feel energize during a fast you should still rest at appropriate times you would when not fasting. Today I have to go to work. I knew I had to go to work yesterday, so I decided it was important to recharge myself.
I feel the need to record every thread of information because for me it makes a difference. The information might not make sense now but five months from now I might realize something. If it was not for my previous fast detail notes I would not realize all the pampering I do during successful fasts. Fasting tends to be a blur from one day to the next. Even when I am alert I forget stuff from one thought to the other.
All this written, I feel writing .2 or .5 regarding my weight is important. It is not a sneeze away from being a full pound lost. I urinate right before my weigh-ins and even an hour after it will still say .2. I feel this information is important to write accurately and not knock off a couple digits because it could mess up the numbers for the next day. Weight lost is already starting to slow down. Every digit matters to me.
