I'm pleased with this week's results, three pounds lost. Only four more pounds to go to reach my 10%. But I do plan to keep going to get into the 160's range.
This week, I did a water only fast for two days and three nights. Previously, my longest water fast was one day and two nights.
The only negative side effect to the fasting is that I lost my usual tolerance to cold. I "had" to turn my heat up to 68, from the usual 61 or 62. I decided I wasn't going to be hungry AND cold, it was going to be one or the other. Wearing more clothes did not help. I was already wearing long underwear top and bottom, jeans, undershirt, sweatshirt, zippered hoodie, knit cap, and two pair of socks.
I did not experience any headaches, dizziness, or lack of energy. I exercised as usual, light weights and a stair stepper.
I did notice that my sense of smell was greatly increased.
Many say that fasting increases focus, but I did not experience that. I also noticed that I was physically flighty, quickly getting out of my chair for little reasons like the neighbor's dog barking, and feeling an increased need to frequently pace around the house and stretch my legs.
