    you are totally in charge of your body and mind and that is great.....wow.....that is a long fast......I need to attempt to see if I can do a 72 hour one......

    Ya know, I'm just an all or nothing gal....If I'm gonna eat, I'm gonna eat as much as I want of what I want and if I've decided to fast, once I start it's easy until I break the fast LOL

    I will say, I supplemented with electrolytes (the Mio Vitamins orange vanilla is amazing, I highly recommend) but even so, I went to the store today at aboooooooooooout maybe 108 hours fasted and I did struggle a lil LOL - to be fair I was couponing so it was pretty extensive but still....

    I probably won't be doing it again soon but it was a fun and useful experiment :)

    AND for results? 1.5 pounds down :) 159.2

    FINALLY out of the 160s, seemingly took forever LOL

    1.5 doesn't seem like a lot for that much effort but I'm so darn close to my goal weight that my body doesn't wanna let go of that much at once....I'm working on being more patient about it, but it's a work in progress LOLOLOL

    Speaking of Mio, forgot to tell y'all that Ced got me a soda stream for my b-day in Oct and it's FREAKING AMAZING. I love it so much, cause I DIG carbonation!!! And then I can flavor it to my strength level :) I mean it might be considered dirty fasting because the Mio has like 2.5 cals but meh, I need the flavor :)

    Hope everyone had a successful week!!! I'm goin' to check on y'all now :)

    Either the exercise or the long-a** fast did something good because I only rebounded to 166.6 which is a FULL THREE POUNDS less than my rebound the week before which is encouraging for THIS week's loss :)

    On the down side, I feel like crap today - I can smell, taste, and breathe so don't think it's COVID related....just had like a 40 degree drop basically overnight this week so probably just a head cold - still annoying AF LOL

    Have a super week guys!!!

    OMG you are still a rockstar dear!!! That is a super long fast and great results too. I don't have a soda stream but I have heard great things about them!

    hope you are feeling better!!!!

    Guysss!!! I was right, something set me up for success this week 😁😁 157.8 so another 1.4 loss 😍

    I wasn't feeling good Monday and thus didn't have an appetite but I did have somewhere around 300 cals in vitamins, emergen-c, and a few bites of Salami lol

    Tuesday I had a low Cal omad and halo Top, and then just fasted weds/Thurs (I probably wouldn't have fasted Wednesday except that I normally fast Monday and I didn't really this week and I wanted to have at least two days fully fasted)

    Soooooooooooooooooo conclusions:
    -the long fast broke my plateau
    -exercise is helping (and actually I'm looking better already too lol)
    -keeping my weekends just a TICHE lower let's me have 2 regular omad days during the week, which is completely sustainable for my loss schedule

    All good stuff guys!!!! And work was DYNAMITE this week too 😁😍

    Cheers and Ciao y'all 😘

    GUYSSSSSSSSSSSS so I wanted a new scale - Ordered one and went through a giant hullabaloo with it not getting delivered on time blah blah blah....long story short, I got it for freeeeee because they done f-ed up LMAO

    It reads body weight AND body fat percentage and syncs with an app - I feel VERY tech savvy B)B)

    Trending nicely for a loss this week so farrrr :) Shooting for 156.X which would be at least a one pound loss :)

    Happy Tues guys!!

    Just checking in team 😁

    Down to 157 even this week so only a 0.8 pound loss HOWEVER I had really big losses the last 2 weeks so I expected it to slow down a lil (could have been a full pound so I felt better though, huh? Lmao)

    Tracy - I made the recipe for the soup and it was SO GOOD!!!! The recipe was missing some stuff? Like it said milk in the description but there's only half and half listed in the ingredients? Anyway I ended up using 1 cup 2% milk, 1 cup half and half, and 1 14.5 oz can of chicken broth (don't judge me, the only bone broth I had made was pork lmao).

    Here's some pics of that AND a few of my OMADs/meals over the past couple weeks:

    SOUPPPPPPPPPPP

    BLT on this Keto bread I got because it was free in my coupon world and it's actually decent bread LOL

    Steph, I forgot to edit the instructions after changing the ingredients. The original recipe called for 1 cup milk and 1 cup cream. I modified it to 2 cups half and half since it is a combination of milk and cream. I am glad you like it. Your other meals look super good.

    Air fryer!!!! So crispy so fast 😁😁😁 I'd have done the chicken tendies in there too but not enough room 😂

    Guysssssssssssssssssssss -_-

    So I weighed in at 157.8 today *sigh* - that's a 0.8 pound GAIN and basically erased LAST week's work....I did exactly the same thing as I have been the last month (Fast Mon, small OMAD Tues, fast weds/thurs) but alas, no dice.

    I did 2 REALLY BIG workouts Monday and Tues (well big for ME lol) and I've had a REALLY stressful couple of days so I'm HOPING it's just stress and water weight from teh exercise.

    It still FEELS like 2 weeks wasted...I'm like 99% sure it only feels this dramatic because I'm ready to MURDER one of my lenders and have been through the WRINGER this morning...stress makes everything feel amplified *sigh*

    HOWEVER...I know I didn't overeat so it HAS to be fake weight and I'm sure I'll probably get a whoosh in the next few weeks. It is week 5 in my "back on the losing train" phase so perhaps this is my first plateau and I just need to push through...

    Not giving up by ANY means (despite my woe is me attitude above LMAO) - Run the play, trust the process <3

    Can't wait to see how everyone else did this weeeeeeeeeeeeeeek so UPDATE ME Y'ALL!!!!

    Girls your meals never disappoint :) I am not a mushy pea girl though I like them in Asian food pretty much, but even those looked good, in all that gravy goodness :) I am sure you will get a big loss soon, you continue to be a rock star with your weigh loss :)......

    H'ok so - I tried to keep my cals a little more in line this weekend (around 9k for the weekend). Weigh in this morn is 165.4 which is about 2.4 LOWER than my Monday weigh in last week so that bodes well!! Last weeks was 1 pound UP from prev and I didnt show a loss so I'm hoping this is a good sign LMAO

    If I can get to 155 this week, that'd average out to 0.9 pounds a week for the last 3 weeks which I WOULD TAKE :)

    Here's some food porn from the weekend:

    Friday I had some brats to break the fast and then a buffalo chicken salad for dinner:

    Sat I had a Salmon Caesar salad and then Meatloaf with asparagus and cheesy mashed with more homemade gravy (I have a gravy problem LMAO)

    Sun I had Turkey sausage with penne and meat sauce with some spinach sunk in there for nutrition LOL

    Between your fasting and water drinking, that 155 goal is in the bag.
