102.6 lbs at the end of a 60 hour water fast for a total loss of 3.2 lbs. Not bad at all. In fact I wasn't expecting much of a loss in such a short time. It's also a new low :) However I have to say, the past 30 minutes have been hell.

I tried going back to sleep after a few hours and I woke up again at around the 60 hour mark. I felt extremely weak and achy. My heart was pounding hard and I was nauseous. Of course, my first thought was to go and pee so I could weigh myself. Anyway, long story short, I stumbled to the bathroom, thought I was going to pass out because I was so dizzy, and dry heaved into the garbage a couple times. Not exactly pleasant.

I still managed to take off my clothes and get out my scale though haha. I tried to eat a grapefruit but *someone* turned the temperature down in the fridge so it was literally frozen. I ended up eating some broccoli and rice. I feel so much better after eating :)

I really hope I can keep this weight off although I know I should expect that my weight goes up to the 103's tomorrow. Kate and Minus Human thank you for your advice and concern! I think this experience has taught me that 2 1/2 days is my limit (for now) but I think I'll stick to restricting for awhile before I attempt another fast.

I'm so so so close to my goal weight. I have 5 more days to reach it!


  1. Thanks for the comment :) Nice job on the 60 hour water fast! And the loss! Look forward to reading more from you :)

  2. Hey hun! Wow, way to go - you must be looking tiny right now *sighs* I can remember how I felt at 102 this time last I'm 112!!

    Maybe next time you fast let me know and we'll do it together? xxx

  3. Congratulations on your new low! I'm sure you are totally beautiful. We're the same height. I am totally jealous I'm not as skinny.

    Next time you might try a juice fast. I've had to switch from water fasting to juice on occasions when I got too weak and am always shocked by how much energy just a small amount of juice can give me.

    Thanks for your sweet comment. On a rough day comments like those are like getting a hug.
