It is April 9, Palm Sunday, and this is my 40th day on the ADF regimen. As I write this I have been fasting for 38 hours, but I slept pretty well last night: I need less sleep when I am fasting. I felt cold all day yesterday, though, except for when I was outside helping the boys build a fire for the rest of the family to cook their lunch.
I weighed in at 282.6 lbs this morning, having lost three pounds in the past week, and over 30 lbs since March 1st. Perhaps next week I will crack under 280.
Either way. The loss was slower this week, but I’m not concerned about the variable speed of weight loss as long as the needle is going in the right direction. Two to four pounds a week would be ideal. I lifted weights this morning and hope to take a brisk walk/light jog later.
