Sorry I have been pretty quiet as far as online stuff goes of later. Troubles at home basically the house is like a war zone for the last few months... You know what families are like Im sure how those closest can drive you to the brink of sanity... but anyway thats just usual...Getting back to work got my mind calmed from the conflict at last and a new calm from my fasting.
So Im fasting to loose weight, this is a liquids only diet. Basically no sugar tea with milk (10 years it took me to give up sugar in tea one of the hardest things to adapt to) and a cup of cocoa at night or a 2nd if I feel like a treat.. This was basically like a water fast but I was unwilling to give up a proper cuppa. (I have not given up toke or cigarettes either but have cut down my tobacco consumption massively)
Been on it 7 days now and well what can I say about not eating for 7 days just drinking liquids..... well the first couple of days were pretty easy slightly raised stress, little tired on 2nd day, literally no big deal at all no real hunger though food obsessed.
Day 3-4... well these days were rough, had myself a few full scale anxiety attacks.. this very much also to do with conflict going on in the house at the same time too. Can feel slight pins and needles in my fingers which I find very irritating. Did not really sleep as well on these nights...
Days 5-7. At this point I feel in a calm and high energy state.. too high energy I cant hardly sit down keep walking about being at the PC is a nightmare. I have a desire to eat but no hunger.. spent lots of time watching food videos and fasting and weight loss videos. Been doing lots of exercise..have increased my lifts another rep from 8-9 feeling better and more energized than before.
So will continue this while I feel good from it... up to a possible of 30 days and see what weight loss result I can get. My goal now is to drop my fat percentage to around what is considered to be athletic level built percentages.. at this time I will be working to tone and sculpt my body, this is to deal with the dreaded nightmare of any person losing over 130lbs.. loose flabby skin... Im already reasonably muscular built under the flab anyway, with doing squats, weights and lots of walking.
Basically got to get rid of as much fat and get my body small and lean as possible for maximum skin tightening then wait 6- 12 months to see what the end result will be or how bad... Honestly the truth is that its mostly somewhat dire the results for 80% of people and you can see why many great weight loss photos have the lower stomach covered up.
The top of my arms and legs is much improved from when I was heavier before with my building up muscle to pick up the slack, breast are looking deflated saggy 32d UK size lols I think they will suffer the 2nd worst. Ass rounded and firmer from the squats but I never had much fat on my butt it was all on my tummy.. Which is my biggest problem area and at this weight is starting to get that really saggy bag of loose skin look sadly. Even getting to 135lbs and a UK size 8 (USA 4-6 depending the guide) still have a massive flabby gut and funny to think without the flabby flesh would almost be not far of from hitting the coveted size zero (I have 27 1/2 inch waist and 36 1/2 inch hips) I still have quite a lot of fat under the skin so hence my trying to shift as much of it as possible to get the skin to tighten as much as it can at least... but yeah my boobs and tummy will start to worse as I push my weight down to the bottom of the healthy weight range as they will get even more deflated looking which I'm really not looking forward too then the 6-12 month wait to see how much the skin will tighten back. This is like a never ending nightmare but at least gives me something to work at. Lols I look pretty good in my clothes where it can hold all the flab in place
