    Wow...Ramadan style? Amazing! I can never do that...I just need some liquid now and then. Good luck with your weigh-in :)

    The cravings were just running away from me. It has worked as intended.

    I decided to stop yesterday and rehydrated. Well, fluid is now unrestricted. However, I'm not craving it so much...

    Thought it was important to weigh after a day of hydration for an accurate accounting.

    During my feeding/hydration window, I was taking in 2L of water, just not distributed throughout the day.

    I've decided drinking fluid can be an addiction, just like food. We often hear about people drinking too much and flushing electrolytes/retaining water. Had a doctor tell me that sipping on water all day is inferior to drinking larger amounts in a sitting (outside of a meal).

    Why do we need this constant stimulation?

    Anyway. I'm down to my lowest weight since 2003, 219 lbs. My urine is light colored, too light really - so hydrated.

    I believe dry fasting, with proper preparation - can be a plateau buster.

    Next week will be interesting, on the scale side.

    This makes me nervous. However, seems to be true for me, at least.

    Congrats on your weight loss! Lowest weight since 2003? Amazing. I am not too good with dry fasting. I found that green tea is my best friend during fasting :) Don't think I can go down to my lowest weight as I was 45kg. I will be happy if I reach my GW of 50kg. Its a long way to go for me...nearly 12kg more to loose. Fingers cross! Happy Thursday! :)

    Congrats on being at your lowest weight in 15 years :) I cannot do dry fasting because my UT would not be very happy with me but if it works for you then thats awesome, KUTGW :)

    I really like drinking different teas, as well.

    12kg isn’t so bad, you can see the finish line. 😎

    45kg, yeah, 50kg is better. 😀

    Dry fasting is absolutely unnecessary, but I like experimenting. Have a good weekend!

    Yeah, dry fasting is a weapon, not a constant. Would have UTI issues, myself. Worried me a bit, but do believe it forced a swoosh. I’ll add cranberry to my rehydration mix next time.

    Let’s see, I started at 277 in mid February and am at 219 for the end August.

    58 lbs lost is a lot of weight, mercy. My endurance is 10 fold.

    Given my mistakes while traveling this summer, will take it.

    My wardrobe is wrecked. Digging up old clothes. Thrift stores. It’s a good problem.

    I would be jumping for joy if I loss 58lbs! :) That's one amazing achievement. I never like shopping last time as whenever I do go shopping, the number of the clothes depresses me. Imagine me from a size 6 (AUS) to a size 14 (at my heaviest). Right now, I love going to shopping as I can fit size 10 or even 8 depending on the cut. So, when you go shopping for smaller sizes, its a wonderful problem. :) Have a wonderful Tuesday! :)

    Clothes shopping opens up our insecurities. It's difficult when not feeling so good about ourselves. At my best, I'm the type that finds a style/brand that fits well and buys up different colors and patterns to make shopping easy.

    It's just a number, the sizes and weight. Luckily.

    Have a good one yourself! Congrats on feeling better about shopping!

    Congratulations on your weight loss. OMG, I really wonder if all guys are similar as my hubby does the same thing - same brand, same cut and just get different colours. Have a wonderful weekend☺

    From a small survey, most of my male friends hate shopping. So, if forced, they pull the mentioned stunt. 😂
