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!
