Hi @L_Melina_Hunt! Awesome! How tall are you?
I’ve been on this forum a couple of years now. I lost and got down to 160’s I believe (would have to go digging) and then went through end of year holidays (year before last) and lost my way with too much distraction and stress. So I’m back up but now going back down again and really would like to keep myself moderated and find a goal weight by February of next year. But if it takes a little longer I’m ok with that too.
My primary goal of this fast is to kick under 200 and fit into some clothes. I got rid of some things last time my weight was down but need to be serious about getting rid of EVERYTHING that is too large on me this time. I think I need to start actually measuring my clothes - not just go by what size it says as they are all so different. I’m fooling myself with something that says 16 when it actually stretches to an 18. You just gave me an idea. Maybe I measure and rip tags out and put in custom tags.
I just did an awesome hour long meditation and as part of it I pictured myself in my new body and what I’m wearing and what I look like. Dang I’m sexy and cute. But even better I’m flexible like I used to be and full of energy.
My end all be all is around 145. I’m 5’6.
Need to work on what the refeed is going to look like as this is a long fast for me. And probably should keep it within a 4-6 hour window so as not to lose momentum and transition into some intermittent plan to stick to through the end of the year. Some short fast cycling mixed in.
Because this is such a long challenge for myself I do have some boxed organic bone broth around for emergency - but hopefully I don’t open that for another 36 days.
Right now I’m just playing a game with my head telling myself it’s the first day every day.
Feeling a bit nauseous today. Good for 15-20 minutes and then feeling like I’m going to lose my water lunch. Didn’t feel anything during the meditation so will be doing that a couple more times today. I expect to be feeling better by the weekend.
ATM I’m wanting to just feel well enough to go get a hair cut this afternoon and perhaps a pedicure. Hair is below my neck and longest it’s been in a couple of years. Thinking some pampering will help pull me out of the funk.
