sml_gallery_201392_68121_2192.png

 

YouTube vlog for this thread and my 128 day extreme fast project starts in february

 

some of my before & after pictures from my 100 day fast

all before & after pictures and statistic tables in my profile: https://www.myproana.com/index.php/user/201392-oki/

 

my last extreme fast was 100 days, 0 calories, water only.

this fast will be 128 days, 0 calories, water only.

 

like the 100 day fast, this 128 day fast will be documented on YouTube, for our thread, the videos will be placed here in the thread.

in my vlog videos, i will be explaining how i control my mind during fasting to allow me to run extreme fasts, here on mpa since 2014, and also has allowed me to defeat my eating disorder.

i also will do videos of me cooking my favorite foods, and my little bunny Teemo will also be in the videos ( see my profile ).

 

all my videos will be published in private mode, available only to mpa, because i demand the strictest level of modesty from myself, thus i will remain unknown to the world except for mpa.

i have no desire for attention for a developed ability. to me, modesty is #1.

my sole purpose is to support mpa.

my 12 Keys for fasting

 

over the years i have been doing extreme fasts, i have broken my skill set of fasting down into its basic components, thus i have found for myself 12 keys to success in fasting.

i want to share them here with the mpa community in the hope of assisting others in the pursuit of Control through the skill set of fasting.

here are the best skills i have developed so far for fasting.
enjoy!

__________________________________________

 

Key 1

Detect / Eject

 

success in fasting is almost entirely mental.

any thought in your mind, that is counterproductive &/or threatening to your fast, needs to be detected as fast as possible, & ejected from your mind as fast as possible.

the thought may be cravings, a bullshit excuse to quit the fast, even people can be counterproductive &/or threatening to your fast.

never allow these thoughts to exist in your mind.

because it will spread throughout your thoughts & mind like a virus, & become catastrophic to the achievement of your goal.

 

be aware & on alert of what is going on in your mind, many of these thoughts begin in stealth or disguise.

this skill set of cognitive control, as it develops over time, can be applied to other areas of your life to help you achieve high level goals.

 

life is war, your mind is your primary weapon.

how disciplined is your mind?

__________________________________________

 

Key 2

Remember Your Hate / Remember Your Pain

 

remember that hate of yourself?

remember that hate of your weight?

remember that hate of your body?

remember that hate of failing weight loss goals?

remember that hate & use it.

remember it when your fasting, to help remind you why it's so important to keep fighting through the pain.

hate & pain are powerful tools, use them to your advantage.

 

in life, there are no better teachers than hate & pain.

 

( moving to 4 )

__________________________________________

 

New Key 2

**** Twice

 

( new Key 2 being written )

__________________________________________

 

Key 3

Play The Tape

 

so your thinking about quitting your fast, play that future version of your life out in your mind.

witness your anger at yourself because you made that decision to quit.

feel those emotions of failure.

live that out first, in your mind, before you quit.

do this over & over.

__________________________________________

 

Key 4

Rationality Shifts

 

prepare for shifts in rationality.

your mind will play tricks on you.

it will offer you terrific excuses to quit the fast.

it will trick you with new rationalizations of why the fast you are running is not worth it, or that it is a horrible idea for some good reason.

 

stand your ground.

__________________________________________

 

Key 5

Only Days Matter

 

weight means nothing, only days matter.

if you need to see your weight going down each day & you invest into that mentally & emotionally, you are setting yourself up for more pain & possibly failure.

only focus on getting through the day your in.

focus on accomplishing days, not accomplishing numbers.

your weight will do all kinds of tricks & fluctuations, don't let it beat you.

 

control your focus.

__________________________________________

 

Key 6

Hell Week

 

the 1st week of the fast is hell.

cravings, hunger, depression & the never ending search for desperate excuses to quit are boiling hot in the 1st week.

generally after the 1st week things get 100x easier.

 

be prepared.

__________________________________________

 

Key 7

Stress Triggers

 

stress weakens resolve.

while fasting, eliminate as much stress from your life as you can.

physical / mental / emotional.

__________________________________________

 

Key 8

Weigh-in Danger

 

weigh-ins can be dangerous.
the thing about weigh-ins, is water.
water retention swings are constant, and water weighs a lot.

a little bit of water weighs a lot, and can easily throw your weight numbers all over the place.

over time, you will witness slight weight gains from time to time, even in a 0 calorie fast, due to water weight fluctuations.

 

doing a monday weekly weigh-in is a really good idea to consider.

daily weigh-ins can be toxic to your mind.

 

choose carefully.

__________________________________________

 

Key 9

Momentum
 

this key is simple . .

when you have a goal of doing for example a 4 day fast, & you find that on day 4 you are supercharged & able to keep going, don't stop! keep going!

you have the momentum, it's important to always use it.

there will be other fasts where it's difficult to just get to the end goal, so always capitalize on momentum if / when you have it.

__________________________________________

 

Key 10

Beverages Are God!

 

controlling mood swings & cravings while fasting is crucial!

 

begin to train your mind to binge on diet sodas and/or flavored coffees.

you have to control your mood, and you have to kill cravings.

caffeine is the #1 tool to assist in these aspects of fasting.

 

while fasting, binge on all the 0 or low calorie beverages that you love, and tons of great tasting flavored coffees.

__________________________________________

 

Key 11

Electrolytes

 

electrolytes are chemicals that form electrically charged particles (ions) in body fluids.

these ions carry the electrical energy necessary for many functions, including muscle contractions and transmission of nerve impulses.

potassium, magnesium, calcium, and sodium are electrolytes.

safety in fasting is always priority #1. and electrolytes are a vital component to safety in fasting.

 

the best source for electrolytes while fasting are multi-electrolyte supplements that can be purchased off of amazon for

very low prices, or 0 calorie sport drinks that are specifically designed to replenish electrolytes, such as gatorade & powerade.

 

understand:

having stated all that i have stated here about electrolytes, understand that this is not cookie cutter. meaning . .

you have to learn your own body, because our bodies are all subjective individual cases, we're not all the same.

so . .

for me, i don't actually need electrolytes until i'm far into a fast.

but for you, you might need electrolytes right away!

you may start experiencing irregular heartbeat, or fatigue, or nausea, or muscle cramping, on only day 2!
 

you have to learn your own body, and there is no intelligent reason to take major health risks.

don't just blindly start popping expensive electrolytes because your fasting for 1 day, but don't ignore your bodies signals to you either.

 

remember . .

more is not better. smarter is better.

 

this is the brand i use:

electrolyte supplements on amazon.com:

https://www.amazon.com/stores/node/2600022011?_encoding=UTF8&field-lbr_brands_browse-bin=SaltStick&ref_=bl_dp_s_web_2600022011

__________________________________________

 

Key 12

Marathon, Not A Sprint

 

remember that fasting is a marathon, not a sprint.

the entire issue of weight control is a lifelong issue.

 

we all want to lose as much weight as possible, as quickly as possible.

but the key understanding is that, even if you could wave a magic wand and be any

weight you want instantly, tomorrow, you are right back into the fight of weight control again.

it will never end.

 

controlling your weight through fasting is for life.

so get you mind developed with these keys, and prepare for a long ride. this is not a sprint.

nice to see you here seasnake.

you deserve much respect with your blog that you run for mpa. thank you for it.

 

ok well . .

i don't have a scale right now.

ash bought me one off of amazon. ( ty ash! β€ )

i'm going to unbox it on YouTube for us here.

 

so . .

i have to wait a few days to weigh.

i think i'm about 175, by the looks of me. i'm fat.

 

i'm going to try to get up to 200 for new years day, to get as much safety margin as possible.

i'm going to be doing brisk walks in the night, a few times / week. 40 minutes+ . .

to get my muscle mass up also, for protein depletion.

 

128 days 0 calories / water is going to be brutal seasnake.

New home! 

 

Hi everyone! 

 

Day 1, only 24 hours complete and I found myself with a can opened and a tin of tomatoes about to ruin this - but I came here instead!

So gad to see the core community already in on it. You guys are now pride of place in my favourites bar, and I'm gonna bookmark this in my phone as well so I can drop in anytime. One thing that I know is that it takes literally seconds to lose the self discipline we've developed over our respective fasting journeys so you gotta have all the safety nets you can. Being accountable is a massive one for me. Hell week, where you constantly fight yourself over whether you want to fast or not... but I need rid of the fat before I wan properly work on toning up again. 

 

I've not taken any measurements or weighed for day 1, because I want to put this HW as far behind me as possible. I know what I weigh and I don't want to see it until it's significantly lower. I have a long way to go. Maybe there will be failures, but I'm going to get there. Someone said I should go as Ziggy Stardust for Halloween and I have no chance to lose enough between now and then but it goes to show how people remember me, and that's the kind of body I can get back. 

Persephone Nestis (an appellation for the Greek Goddess in her aspect as The Fasting One) had a beautiful dream of her Hades overnight, he gifted her with a bouquet of white lilies and red roses, in cobalt blue glass. When she woke she was full of relief and gratitude, because in waking life she knew her Crow was still breathing, and neither of them were ready of the final journey to the Underworld just yet. Perhaps they will never meet in waking, but she has her dreams. She spent the day drifting in slumber, much needed rest, and dreamed a Crow Black Dream... a fable told in Crow's familiar voice, in which she follows a corvid through green spaces of the world... 

 

On the subject of death and Persephone I put this up, and I want to share an aspect of myself with my fasting family cause I trust you guys and I think you will understand the secret messages that no one else does; the background info in the description, and the scenery, those are my little symbols, commitments to my change, my fast, and also a little bit of my silly romantic story about Persephone and Hades, Raven and Crow. (Pretty sure he's not coming back to MPA so hopefully he never realises the true depth of my insanity/fangirling.) 

Spoiler

 

Even though I won't be mentioning fasting directly in my videos I really want to work in the themes in such a way as I can cryptically admit and yet conceal the fact. If people irl knew what I was doing they would discourage me, but I know that I feel more at home in my body and my mind when I am less, when my limbs don't feel so heavy, when I am closer to the structures and the sinews of my self.

What I'd also like to see included would be mid-section circumference measurements taken at the natural waist (narrowest circumference between ribs and navel) and abdominal waist (narrowest circumference between navel and hips). The later tends to more volatile than the former, but I really like watching the difference between the two. For me they are normally 2" different, and when they narrow I tend to be bloated and when they separate I tend to be a bit dehydrated and can run into headaches. So I would personally be really curious to see their separation from the start of a really long fast and their separation at conclusion.

 

It would also be rather interesting if you could take your blood pressure at the start and at the end. I do that at store kiosks, though with Covid-19 they were all blocked from use until a couple weeks ago where I'm at.

great input seasnake.

i really like the idea of tape measurements. i probably will do that, because it just makes sense since i'm putting in so much effort & detail anyways.

 

blood pressure.

yeah . .

the blood pressure machine at my drug store is closed i think, due to covid, i will have to look again.

 

unless you can correct me ( i may be wrong ), my understanding is that blood pressure on & off

of fasting stays about the same, because the heart elevates bpm to maintain normal blood pressure during fasting.
