Praying for all of those who had storms/tornadoes,etc. I slept through the bad storm here last night. I always do in stormy weather..,freaky.
Now that I think of it, they will probably find my body still in bed that died oblivious of the weather if we ever get "the big one". I would not wake up with all of the storms around me.. oh well,,

PICKIE98,
I don't think you can decide where your body looses fat from first. It has its own order.

Great on the new car.

I bought my first new car in 1986 when I was 27 years old. I got other vehicles after that, but not another new one until 2011, so a 25 year gap.

Yay for you!

Thank you James, for the great pictures.
Beautiful place..
I live north of Holland, Michigan. They have a huge windmill there, actually it is on Windmill Island. My ex-BIL lived there and we visited often. I have pics somewhere on old-school photo paper. Miles and miles of tulips!

James, how wonderful. Take pictures.
I only lasted 21 1/2 hours on my fast, but that is okay. I read my body and it told me it was time to eat some protein. I had a cheeses stick and an apple.

The wheels are in motion for my new car being delivered. I have had my present car since 2006. 61,000 miles on him. It is time to get him a companion..

I fasted for 16 1/2 hours with no ill effects. If I start it after dinner and just drink water until the following evening, I do okay. I have not tried longer.. I did take some sea salt once.
When I break fast, I eat protein and a little fat.

Going shopping... more of a challenge here in Germany. My German really is good enough, but the genders on all nouns. In English we have he, she, and it for pronouns. But every noun has that in German. Cats are "she", dogs are "he", child is "it" ... every single noun, get it right or it's like taking about your mother and saying referring to her as "he". That applies to just saying "the" correctly.

My mother, he loves going on vacation. With my accent too.

Yes, I guess that is what that is, James. It was my highest recorded BS so far, but I am not concerned, as my charts show such normal ones otherwise.

Sounds like "the dawn phenomenon" where the body raises its blood sugar as part of the waking process. Yes, later in the day you are beyond this, plus by moving during the day you may have burned some blood sugar off.

I stayed at the same weight, but will begin another fast tomorrow.
My BS was 152 after not eating for 13 hours, no carbs for 16 hours. Weird.

I will fast again either tomorrow or Sunday. If I can lose one pound per fast, I will be happy.
