    Very good! Didn't realize you did all that buildup. You should be good! I'm at about 40-45 min 3xweek right now and am building up to an hour 3xweek. I am running hard though up hills right now when I run. Good luck!
    Thanks, you're running much harder than I.
    I keep a slow pace and no hills. For now, just trying to establish a base of fitness

    Awesome results! Congratulations! I am not consistent with any exercise routine as of now but plan to incorporate brisk walk and occasional cardio workouts at home. Motivated by your workouts :)

    Thanks, where I started was way up there so I needed to lose the equivalent of a full sized man. I'm going to have an incredible before/after pic when I get to the end. B)

    Pleased with the results this week although I think I will make some tweaks.
    Need to eat a little more on my eating days and back off on the exercise intensity on fasting days.
    Tried to jog for an hour yesterday in 85 degree heat after about 68 hours with no food.
    I made it about 45 minutes but got overheated and walked home. Not enough in the tank for that kind of stuff.
    But I had a feast last night and today will try again to see how it goes, this time with fuel in the tank.

    wow man you've lost 138 lbs, that's insane, great progress!

    do you mind if I use your template to track progress? I may open a thread for a log since the number of weeks are starting to blur in my mind, the only thing I don't understand is what do you mean by "partial fasting", great job anyway

    I just noticed that I've had a duplicate WK 34 for sometime now. Correcting it now.

    thanks! go ahead and use that template if you choose. no problem.

    I did an 11 day water fast starting on a Saturday. Since I report my weekly weight on Sunday the 11 day fast impacted 3 weeks. Where I denoted "Partial fasting" it means that within that week were some water fasting days. Just trying to account for the skewing of the numbers caused by the fast. I know if I don't leave some notes that down the road I won't remember what was going on at the time.

    I've got a nice weekly rhythm going. I'm packing it in on my five eating days, still only once per day but maybe 15% more than my normal OMAD. Then on my two fasting days only water and black coffee so there is a clear distinction between feasting and fasting. Then I'm now running 5 days a week but adjusting duration and intensity around the eating/fasting schedule. In any case, I couldn't be any happier at this point. Heading out to get some new clothes, again!

    That's FANTASTIC! To lose 5# a week this far into the journey is amazing!
  • mikseynihamikseyniha Member Posts: 442 Member Member Posts: 442 Member
    Thats such a wonderful loss! Seeing your progress, I am getting tempted to include a couple of fasting days in my schedule. I am fasting tomorrow though, just to empty my system of all the glucose I put on in today's carb loaded meal. Congratulations on your loss!

    5lb loss in a week is ridiculous! tempted to jump in the 5/2 train haha

    when you do your no food day, the following day do you move your meal to eat earlier so is not 48 hours fast, or you keep the same hours for your meals regardless?

    I think so too, although I have stepped it up recently in terms of fasting and exercise, so I think that plays a big part.

    My no food day is actually two consecutive days so each week I have essentially a 3 day fast.
    As long as I have control over when I eat, which is most days, it falls between 5-7 PM.
    I'm eating Saturday thru Wednesday, so from Wednesday at 7 to Saturday at 5 comes the roughly three day fast.
    The first week I did this I felt like I didn't have enough to eat, so for the past two weeks I've been having bigger meals, feeling good and the weight is flying off.

    I do this exact same thing..last week I did a 96 hour (Mon Tues weds) but that was the exception... Today and tomorrow are my fasting days and we'll see if I get anywhere close to last week's... Amazing loss btw, keep it up!

    When do exercise and when do you eat? I've thought about the following schedule but I doubt I could do it. I imagine it is similar to what your doing.

    It varies, right now these are my exercise days
    Tuesday - Exercise at 5pm, eat at 7pm
    Thursday - Exercise at 5pm, fasting
    Friday - Exercise at 5pm, fasting
    Saturday - Exercise at 11am, eat at 5pm
    Sunday - Exercise at 6:30 am, eat at 5pm

    I've tried to schedule most of the exercise on the weekend or days when I'm fasting.

    You don't eat from Tues 7pm tell sat at 5pm and get in 3 exercise periods while fasted? I don't think I could come close to doing that.

    no I eat on Wednesday but do not exercise, so I go from Wed at 7 till Sat at 5, so yes there are three exercises in between meals. However by the third run on Saturday I don't push it very hard, nothing high intensity whatsoever, just a steady 40-45 minute run.
    I love to run while fasted, I get a high from it, it's hard to explain.
