I actually went over my 48 hours. After some sage advice on extended fasting (thanks Cat!) it was recommended I be close to home as sometimes you have tummy issues after. I wasn't crazy hungry, I didn't get dizzy or feel weak. I did have ... Read more

Yesterday at 1pm I started my 48 hour fast. Hubby had to go into the office today so he will be away during our eating window. No better time than the present to try my hand at my first 48 hour fast. We normally fast 23 hours a day and eat in... Read more

Confused
Thursday, March 22, 2018      4 comments

I made a comment that I wanted to lose 20 more pounds before we leave for the beach in May. I thought to myself, "I can certainly lose about 5 or 10 in February and lose the rest in March and maybe hit 30 or 40 more by the time we leave!" ... Read more
