(fasting food, water intake only)
Weight: 256.2

Yesterday was day 3 of the fast.

Head felt a little light all day.  Mostly low on energy and foggy.  Although had a burst of energy and clarity at the end of the day playing a card game with my wife.

The day went fine.  I had some times where I was hungry, but just drank more water.  The hunger seemed to subside within minutes typically.  The only time I venture into the kitchen is to refill my water jug and I try not to make eye contact with the food.  When my wife and kids came home I avoided the kitchen area even more since I knew they'd be getting a snack.  Went to a car club meeting tonight and brought a bottle of water.  I knew it was going to be a bit of a struggle as they have pizza, salad, and pop available.  The pizza and salad dressing smelled so delicious.  I just did my best to keep talking with people and kept sipping on my water.  The desire to eat wasn't overwhelming due to hunger, but rather just a strong craving.  My tummy grumbled a bit and my mouth salivated a little, but it subsided after about 30 minutes when everyone was done munching. 

Went to bed around 9:30pm, which is earlier than usual.  Woke up at 4am and I was wide awake.  Checked on a few things and then tried going back to sleep.  Tossed and turned for the next couple hours and finally just got up.

Feeling decent right now as I'm typing.  Day 3 wasn't as hard as I expected.  Hopefully that doesn't mean that day 4 will be the bad one.....

Progress as of today: 10.3 lbs lost so far, only 81.2 lbs to go!

good for you being around the smell of pizza and not eating it . Strong smells are so hard to resist.

Innerpeace on 01/29/2014:
Great job on your mission!

Umpqua on 01/29/2014:
Kudos to you for sticking to your plan. That's some serious willpower!

Yesterday was day 2 of the fast.  It started alright, but ended quite tough.  

The morning and early afternoon were met with some dull headaches, a minor feeling of dissiness, and a general lack of energy.  I expected it and kept up on my water intake, so things were progressing as planned.  Since I work alone, it's pretty easy to keep away from temptations during the day.

I kind of sat around all day getting work done and watching some Youtube.  I stayed away from the kitchen when my kids / wife got home, but when I smelled the food cooking for dinner I started having major cravings / tummy rumblings.  I drank more water, but food was stuck in my thoughts.  Mainly the thought of a giant juicy hamburger with melty cheese sliding down the sides.  Made it through dinner time and just before bedtime, my oldest daughter comes walking over to see what I'm doing and she's holding a peeled mini-orange (can't remember their name right now).  Just the smell of that was enough to make me want to quit right then and there.  I "shooed" here away and told here to come back when she was done eating.

My demeanor has been a little more grumpy and I've generally had a shorter temper.  Now onto day 3, which is where I've broken before because it's usually the worst.  I've made it 3 full days before (72 hours), but never over.  Supposedly things start to become a little easier after day 3 or 4, but don't know if I'll see that or not.

Off to work and water.....

Yesterday was day 1 of the fast.  Only food intake was small amount of grape juice and a small piece of a cracker (communion at church).

The day went pretty smooth.  I was just sitting around with the family most of the day relaxing.  I drank plenty of water and didn't feel too hungry.  I wasn't really tempted to eat anything and ended the day feeling more "in control".

Woke up this morning feeling alright.  I have a small headache right now and will see how today goes.

Good luck with your fast. I always seem to get nausea if I don't eat for long periods of time.

Regarding food, I've been out of control for the past few months.  I can control my food intake during the day, but then usually lose it at night.  

For various reasons I've decided I need to get in control of my eating today.  I didn't really plan it out, but have decided to give up food for a little bit.  It may be a day, a couple days, or more.  I just need to stop shoveling junk into my mouth.

Yesterday no pop again, but plenty of junk eaten.  Headaches have deminished the past couple days.  Starting to think about regulating what I eat, but know that Christmas vacation is going to be filled with eating.

Made it through 2 days without any pop.  Today has been another day without pop, but with a large amount of food.  Larger amounts of food have been how I've been trying to cope with the pop withdrawl.  I've had a few strong headaches over the past couple days.

Yesterday I ate a lot, but made it through the day without a pop.  Part way through today, I've eaten a lot, but will try to make it through the day without a pop.....

Yesterday went much better than the past month.  I took in a decent amount of water and stayed away from the pop / candy.  My wife and I sat down to watch a movie and I really wanted some popcorn, but resisted.  Starting off today with a jug-o-water and some Fiber One w/milk.

Took the family roller skating last night 

8am - Fiber One w/ milk, multi-vitamins 

11am - homemade fruit smoothie with my girls - banana, peach, apple

supercheese on 07/02/2013:
congrats on the no popcorn. its a weakness for me. Have a good one!

OhioRaven on 07/02/2013:
How much water ? Since I started drinking the crap out of water, I haven't had the urge for a Mt. Dew at all.

graindart on 07/02/2013:
Somewhere around 100oz daily. I'll up the intake if I'm outside, hot, or exercising.

Transformation on 07/03/2013:
Great job on resisting the popcorn! Good for you!
