    Very impressive - fresh yummy tomatoes are a huge weakness of mine! I'm not sure I would have been as strong as you... :)

    I felt hungry yesterday at 5PM. I had to leave the kitchen, knew my power was waning. Mornings are easy. Tomatoes yesterday, fritters today.

    Nice daily totals! You're doing great! Have fun with those fritters :)

    Great drop. I usually go out on a walk when I get hungry- hunger vanishes. I haven't been able to walk last couple days and definitely harder to fight the hunger. You're being strong and you goal is just within reach. Nice job :)

    When I started this fast, I didn't know how long I would do it. I had no goal. Last night I realized that the goal of this fast is to help my knees, to move towards point they were in mid-May, when I had a business trip to Germany, and I was able to walk for 2-3 hours without problems. Fasting for 3 days has helped. Left knee - swelling gone - now no pain. Right knee - swelling down a bit - but it still hurts when I walk.

    My short-term goal now is to be able to walk for 2-3 hours by the last week of September, when I will be in Barcelona, my fav city in the whole world!!

    I'm betting the extra weight has been a big cause of the recent problems. In mid-May, I weighed ~186. When I wrecked my right knee (September 2015), I weighed 172. My new long-term goal is 165, for the health of my knees. I think this is a reasonable goal, since most of my life, until I was 50, I weighed 152-155.

    I have no goal for the length of this fast. I'm now doing it for my right knee, and I will just see how much healing this can accomplish.

    Proud of you! I'm on my 72 hour weekly fast (might go 96 hours...it was a rough weekend LOL) and it does wonders for you! I don't know HOW you did all that food prep while fasting! Amazing!

    Lol, starting to feel dizzy when I bend over to cut herbs (going to make pesto for the freezer) or to take a picture of the eclipse on our sunroom floor. Partial eclipse images created by sun filtered through wisteria leaves on the arbor outside the sunroom door.
