Im loving the diet and the results. Today was a fast day and I just logged my diet for day in myfitnesspal and I’m over by 150 calories!! 200 of thos calories were 2 protein shakes and a almond milk coffee but im worried ive wasted my whole day of fasting to go over caliries. I do 10000 steps plus a day and fo F45 training everyday. Today was weights so I had the protein to keep the muscles. Please advise. Thanks. V.
Call it a light eating day, still an excellent day for losing weight and for your long term health. Congratulate yourself on a good day! Not a wasted day at all.
150 cal less next fast day and you’ll be rocking it!

So I have been continuing eating for 3 days and 4 times, all binge eatings. I feel hot and bloated. I have not been walking for a while because I feel lazy. I need to do extended water fast and resume walking probably in the evening hours as the sun will goes down. Today is day 1 of my water fasting. I am determined to be strong and go through it!

Day 2 of extended fasting. I took a long walk last night. I more and more find that walking does not do much on body therefore on weight loss, but I am still doing it for mental clearity. I does not weigh myself now because after I know the weighing, I either get discouraged or satisfied and start to binge eating. I don’t know why I woke up late today. I was not very tired last night after walking. I feel good when my stomach is rumbling, instead of bloating after each binge eating. Tonight I will have another long walk. And I will stay strong and prepare for the future to come.

Day 3 of extended fasting. I took a long walk last night. I weighed myself and was a little frustrated, but I did not cave in. I cannot fall into sleep, maybe because I had drunk coffee yesterday morning. It has been long time since the last time I drank coffee. I am fasting for spiritual reason and weight issue. I can feel a little euphoria at this early morning. That is a good thing. I will be strong and go through this fasting and there are so much that I want to do.

Yesterday I broke my fast and ate a large meal at night. I feel very bloated and thinking about ways to get those things I ate out of my system. I did went for a long walk last night. Today is day 1 of my extended water fasting. I am determined to be strong and go through it.
16 May 21
Yesterday I broke the fast again with some cheese, crackers, vegetable and fruit. So today is day 1 of my extended water fasting again. I will be strong and go through it.

End of day 1 of extended water fasting. I have so many starting of day 1 that I am so embarrassed to post that again. Yes I had 4 consecutive days of eating, 3 of them large meals ending yesterday. I have not taken the walk these several days. It is always not easy to resume after stop walking. It is so true that it only takes 5 minutes self talk to fight off the urge to eat. It is the mindset and reprogramming.

End of day 2 of extended water fasting. I feel my energy level was somewhat low when I got up from bed this morning. I still did not go for a walk today. My toothache which has been persistent for about 1 week is gone. I have been procrastinating getting things done for so long that frightens me.
20 May 21
End of day 3 of extended water fasting. I have better energy than yesterday. I still need to get back to my routine of walking. I still need to do the thing I am supposed to do and no more procrastination. I would very much like to have feedback from other forum members.

Day 1 of fasting. I caved and had a large meal yesterday at midnight. So I was back to day 1 again. Today I almost broke my fast several times, but after some struggling, I stayed on track. I think about have a shorter walk than before.
22 May 21
Day 1 in. Again I broke the fast and had a large meal yesterday at midnight. So again I was back to day 1. Today is easier than yesterday. Not much struggle. Maybe because I was sipping coffee, tea and salted water all along. Today I took several short walks.
23 May 21
Day 2 in. Today I had more struggling than yesterday. It is level 4 of 10. And I did some short walks.
24 May 21
Day 3 in. The struggle came between 3 to 8 pm. Last night I couldn’t fall into sleep until 4:30 am and slept about 3 hours. I had several short walks, totalling about 60 minutes.
I used to be able to do 7 day fast. But now I have been only doing 3 day fast. Every time I hit 3 day, I begin to eat a large meal. After I eat, I regret and panic. It will take days of fasting for the weight I put on bacause of my eating to come off. What did you do when you almost want to cave in every time?
25 May 21
Starting of day 2 of fasting. So I broke my last fasting with a large meal. All the negative feelings came out right after eating. Start all over again. For some reason, I cannot go further than 3 days. I hope this time I can go pass that day. I did couple of short walks, about 1 hour in total.

Day 2 of water fasting. Today I am afraid I will break my fast, but after some struggling, I stayed on track. I did about 1/2 hour of walk, which is much less than before, due to lack of motivation. What really motivate you to exercise every day?
12 Jun 21
Day 3 of water fasting. I have taken a lot of fish oil, which makes me feel full. Tomorrow I will face a social dining. Usually I give in and break the fast. Hopefully I can resist this trigger tomorrow.

Start day 3 of fasting. I had episodes of weakness in an indoor gathering, maybe because it was hot and there is no air conditioning or fan inside. I did about 1 hour of walk under the sun.
15 Jun 21
Start day 4 of fasting. Yesterday I was afraid I would break the fast, but after some struggling, I stayed on track. One of the motivations is I am with 2 fasting groups.
16 Jun 21
Start day 5 of fasting. I am afraid I have alread broken the fast. Because I started munching on one piece of lotus seed, then another one, until I had 200g of them. I also had chicken flavored soup. Over all, yesterday I had food cravings that I was not able to stop. I wish tomorrow I will still see the weight loss on the scale.
I have tried to reach out 2 fasting groups which I joined, which keep me motivated.

Begin day 2 of fasting. Yesterday early morning and afternoon I broke the fast with two large meals. I felt very bloated. So last fast was only for 4 days. Start all over again.Yesterday I don’t know why I felt so tired.I slept early and woke up early morning and fell back into sleep. As soon as I started to do things, I am good to go. I walked about 6 hours today and I got blisters on the feet.

Start day 3 of water fasting. So I have been continuing eating for 13 days, all large meals. I felt hot and bloated during those days. And I gained 8 pounds, 13 pounds away from my lowest weight. I feel a total different person, a lot of fat piled up on me. I am so glad that I am back on track. Today I had 2 walks, total 110 minutes. I was on my feet almost all day while on day 2 of fasting, which I thought was impossible as I was very nervous during these 2 weeks and the stress is going to get much more as time goes. I really need to know that if I keep on stress eating, I gain weight at a speedy 2#/day. And I lose 10 month of hard fasting time and the reason I am fasting.

Begin day 3 of fasting. So I have been continuing eating for 5 days, all large meals. In the last 3 days I had been eating all day mindlessly. It was so much eating activities that my teeth filling came off. That scares me and stops me from compulsive and stress eating. I can feel my face was stuffed. My legs become bigger. I gained 19 pounds from my lowest weight.I am so glad that I am back on track again. Today I had 2 walks, total 150 minutes. I had a light working day while on day 2 of fasting, which I thought was impossible as I was very tired last week despite eating large meal before. The stress is going to get much more as time goes. I really need to know that if I keep on stress eating, I gain weight at a speedy 2#/day. And I lose 10 month of hard fasting time and the reason I am fasting which is religious and self confidence and peace of mind.
