Fasting Success

Today I broke my 64 hour fast at noon! I felt so great making it to that last hour that I didn't even rush to the lunch room, but stayed at my desk and finished up some work for 10 or 15 minutes before heading in to eat.

Yesterday, near the end of my long fast I did yoga. I have never felt so focused. It was magical. I really do enjoy the side effects of long fasts, clarity, calm, accomplishment. I lost over 5 pounds in two and a half days. Hopefully at least 2 pounds of that will stay off. I know that if I keep to my plan and continue to do these long fasts once per month that I will reach my goal of 135-140 pounds and stay there! I am so excited!

When I broke my fast today, I was a little concerned that I would overeat, since that is an issue with me. But, I am happy to report that I only ate the food I brought for the day and didn't go overboard or eat past feeling full. I had a big salad with spinach, cucumber, cabbage, broccoli coleslaw, chicken, feta, sesame seeds, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, croutons and dressing. I also had a hard boiled egg and a slice of wheat free bread. Then later I had some watermelon, blueberries and cherries with a few squares of chocolate.

I am so happy today!!! Looking forward to continuing on this new path and seeing results!
