Down to 105 lbs. Thank goodness the weight is coming off relatively quickly. I'm back to Thursday's weight, and on Friday I reached 104 so hopefully I'll see the same progress.

I am now in the 28th hour of my water fast. I also have another Organic Chemistry test in 15 hours. My concern is that since I have to spend so many more hours *awake* so I can study I may be more tempted to eat. I usually sleep a lot more when I fast. I'm determined to make it to 48 hours at least though. After thinking about it, I would ideally want to stop the fast when I reach 103 lbs or below. That way, from November 1st to December 28th (my birthday) I'll have approximately 8 weeks to lose 8 lbs to reach my UGW which is DEFINITELY possible.

There's something that's starting to worry me. I'm not entirely sure if this is eating related but I haven't had my period in 2 months now. I never had it very regularly and it was more of a month-and-a-half cycle rather than every month, but still. Starting to freak out juuuust a little.

I'm hungry but one little glance at the mirror is enough to convince me that eating isn't worth it. It's funny that I started out thinking I would be happy if I lost weight through restricting a little and that I would never resort to fasting. Or starving as some would argue. Well... I guess all I can say is that people change. I've changed. I'm certainly not the same person that I was last year. It's a bit sad.

OH and I can't believe I have 10 followers! Thank you all for reading :) You all keep me accountable for my actions, so when I say I'm going to do something here I feel even more motivated to succeed haha.

I hope everyone is doing well <3

Weighed myself again after 6 hours. 104.6 lbs :) I know that weight fluctuates a lot when you fast due to water or whatever it is, but that's not going to stop me from counting it hehe.

104 lbs after another 6 hours. Hmmm really hope this isn't water weight because this is kind of sounding too good to be true!

41 hours in. 103.6 lbs!!! A new freaking low that I haven't had in years. I HAVE to be doing something right :)


  1. Congrats on how well the fast is going! I think I am going to do one this weekend, it has been so long. I would go to an ob/gyn and make sure that it is just low fat content causing the lack of periods, there can be other, more serious reasons. And it isn't necessarily cause for alarm for the doctor as long as you don't have a huge history and you come up with a snazzy excuse for losing a bunch of weight "I've been feeling really down the last couple months" or "I've been training for a marathon" (my current weight-loss go-to excuse :). Good luck!

  2. Hi there

    I just found your blog and we have a lot in common. I'm also 5ft2 and currently 104lbs. My ultimate goal weight is 95lbs too.

    I'm really sorry to hear that you're suffering though. I think you ought to go to the doctor about your period. Every period missed can result in serious bone loss and very quickly you can end up with brittle bones. Maybe just get on the pill or get the implant? They will regulate your hormones.

    Good luck with your test and take care of yourself. Looking forward to reading your next update.

  3. Congratulations on the goal reached. :)
    I'm fasting right now, too, and I hope I'm strong enough to go for a while..
    I got my period like an hour ago, and I'm sorry to hear about your worry. :/

    I'm excited to read your next post. :)
