I never intended to share my before and after photos, so the ones I took were only for myself to see the progress, aka completely naked haha.
I now regret not taking proper pictures with underwear or clothes on too, that could show the changes more accurately.
The reason why I haven’t shared my pictures earlier is because I’ve seen several people on here that have expressed symptoms of eating disorders, and I’m very scared that my body or my pictures might trigger someone to loose weight for the wrong reasons. My before and after photos doesn’t differ a ton in weight, but my body composition is completely different with the changes in body fat percentage.
I’ve never been overweight but I gained weight very rapid and unhealthfully within a few months through my extreme conditioned binging behaviour and depression.
Therefore, the main reason for my fasting journey hasn’t been weight loss, but to regain my physical and mental health by resetting healthy behaviours around food. My weight went back to my body’s “normal” weight range after my fast (the settling point weight I’ve had for most of my teen years and early adulthood).
I’ve come a long way on resetting a good relationship with food, but there’s still work to do on the mental parts. My goal is to build a healthy mind and body from here.
I started my fast at 66 kg, but these before pictures were taken four days into my fast so I probably weighed a slightly less than that in these photos.
After my 30 day fast I had a few days of refeed and went on a 6 day fast again. So these following (blurry and crappy) pictures were taken after 30+6 days of water fasting at a weight of 53 kg.
A total loss of 13 kg or 28 pounds.
