Thank you for your encouragement everyone. I broke my fast yesterday. I felt very dizzy leaning over the laundry basket, decided I was a dizzy-enough broad already, so ate around 3PM. Those 5* days felt wonderful!
I like how I feel when fasting. Everything works better. I'll start again today. My plan for the next two weeks is fast 4-5 days, eat for 1-2 days in between, start again. Then off to Spain two weeks from today.
* Actually I think that was a 4-day fast. I'm going with the thought that it is only a fast if there is no food all day. Midnight-to-midnight. Our hormones, our genes, are tuned to expect food during daylight, so they probably don't go into fasting mode until the first full day without food. There were only 4 days that satisfied this criterion for me, Wed, Thurs, Fri, Sat. So maybe 4 FD -> 1 OMAD -> 4 FD -> 1 OMAD etc. will be my current practice.
