Today - this very day....
All is well, in a strangely wonderful way.
I took my blood sugar.... to be sure I wasn't going to faint off.
Strange I need a machine to tell me if I feel ok!
This very low calorie protein-fast experience /experiment is going well.
But then again, they all go well the first few days.
The problem is that some plans are not sustainable.
Unless you are a true Food Masochist.
And I guess a bit of a Food Sadist at the same time,
since we inflict ourselves.
Like true fasting. That was hard for me. The longest I ever went
was 21 days. Now, more like a week. Funny how life gets in the way.
I think an occasional fasting day (or days) is good physically -
and emotionally - especially if you want to see where you really stand
with food.... All kinds of "stuff" comes up! Ego stuff.
I started by just even skipping lunch.
(And boy, were my legs tired! hee hee)
Someone FaceBooked me a link on Protein Sparing Modified Fasting.
I just came to this conclusion on my own, that maybe too much fat was not
right for me at this time. And lots of people have Liquid Protein Diets - (link)
About half of my patients just have cans of formula. And they live for damn ever.
And lots of Bloggers, too. If they can endure all that! Boring, but effective.
I figure I have done much worse to myself, and I am learning
Frustration Tolerance as much as Weight Loss.... soo.......
It's all good.
I still have no hunger, and am getting things done by leaps and bounds.
Must be endorphins. I am in my Happy Place.
But I did borrow a page from that concept and upped my protein
to 4, maybe 5 servings. In the almost complete absence of carbs and fat,
I guess I could go a little higher on the protein.
In 3 days, I have probably lost a pound or two. The Girls are happy
(*ahem*) and not tired any more, and don't need to rest on the ledge.
They sometimes rest on the ledge. Pretty ample ledge.
Bra straps falling down all.day.long. (I'll take it, though!)
But since they are down from a 48DD to a 36C, I have no real complaints.
That is exactly the kind of progress I was looking for.
You can't exactly work The Twins out. What do they do, Push-Up (bra) ?
This is all about the last 10 pounds - the abdominal fat - visceral fat!
The kind that isn't like "regular" adipose tissue....
But, I digress.
My goal is to go for 4 days total. Because I like even numbers and
feel too OCD to stop at 3. Although I would, if needed.
So - Onward and downward!
By the way, Walk This Way - (hippie music for the day)
But please, don't do what I do.
(I have to say that, in case someone thinks I am trying to corrupt them.)
Remember that I am a Zombie, and the same rules don't apply to me!
Perchance. Although it truth, it's all good - and safe.
Yours Very Truly!
