Malibu Queen: Forty Days of Water Fasting, 44-Pound Weight Loss... The Journey Continues
This is Malibu Queen checking in with everyone. I hope all of you are doing well. I'm blogging in to give you an update on my fasting journey.
As I previously blogged that I was going to lose weight for my doctor's visit on 9/22/09, I wanted to give you all the results.
My last weigh-in last year in the doctor's office was 218lbs. The morning of my visit i weighed in at 174lbs.
Officially that is a 44lb weight loss in a total of 40 days of water fasting. But, I know my weight was much higher.
After my previous visit I was at least 20-lbs heavier. This is because i gained so much more weight last year that I had to go shopping for 4 pairs of new pants for work and i got sizes 16.
Also my weight ballooned when my mother died this year in Feb'09. I calculate my actual weight loss to be in the vicinity of 65+ lbs or more. And that's being conservative in my estimate.
My doctor was surprised to know that I take no medications over the counter or prescription. My initial blood pressure reading was 120/60.
I guess they questioned the reading and took my blood pressure twice. Needless to say my doctor was surprised and pleased.
She asked how I accomplished not only the eight-loss but freed myself from all medicines and my health issues. She wrote down the name of this website. But she was concerned about my fasting and requested blood work.
This has been a very satisfying experience, but I'm not through. I've got to lose another 30+lbs before November to reach my goal. Starting this Monday 9/28/09, i will do another 21-28 day fast.
