So, after a bunch of false starts, today is the day. I've made it this far into the day without eating the last few days, but I feel something different in my mind today. I think I'm ready now.
What made it especially hard was being PMS-y the last few days. Extremely PMS-y. I still haven't gotten my period so hopefully those feelings won't come back to sabotage me.
So far today I've had a 16 oz bottle of kombucha, and right now i'm working on a 17oz bottle of water with green powder mixed in. yum.
I havent weighed myself in a while, and I dont have a scale in my apartment, but my weight has been pretty steady at 148 for the past few months, so I'm going to use that as my starting weight. my ULTIMATE goal weight is 120. getting down to 125 (-23lbs) in 30 days would be amazing. Because I'm not hugely overweight - my BMI will be in normal range once i'm under 140 - and because I generally have a slow metabolism (I recently juice fasted for a week with no rigorous exercise but tons of walking and my weight loss was negligible), i'm certainly not expecting to lose a pound a day, and I'm not completely optimistic that i'll lose the projected 23 pounds in 30 days. We'll see. I just need some kind of dramatic budge in the scale!
I havent been able to make myself go to Bikram lately!! UGH!! i know that once i start i'll be addicted again, it's just hard to get yourself going to those first classes. just like the first few days of a fast! i'm going to drink tons of water and go tonight tonight tonight
i think the fact that i've finally started the fast will provide the impetus for me to get going to bikram. I know that i need to burn calories and keep my metabolism up if I want this fast to be weight loss effective and not just completely frustrating and disheartening.
