Hello from this side of overwhelm

Hey all – sorry I didn’t keep up my promise to blog every day about my fasting experience – it’s been going great, and frankly it’s the one thing that’s probably kept me stable during this month of business overwhelm. In short, we had an issue with one of our clients (and with one of our contractors) that set us back a great deal in time and cash, and it’s been all we’ve been able to do to recover, and only now are we starting to see the light (but we’re not quite there yet). I don’t want to go into too many details, but let’s just say, I’m lucky I’m having enough time to post even now.
So, today is fasting day 55 (56 technically, but it’s 2am and I haven’t gone to bed yet), and I weighed in at 203 this morning. June 30th is my last day, and while I’m not having a struggle with the fast (I could probably go another 30 days without any issue), I’m feeling like it’s time to wind it down. I’ll finish up probably around 200 lbs, and I’ll gain back about 5-10 from just filling my digestive system back up, but my target weight is still around 170, so I’ll have another 30-40 lbs to lose with good old fashioned exercise and portion/content control. I can’t wait to go back to my doctor and see how my stats measure up now. I’ve been keeping my blood pressure periodically, and it’s dropped dramatically with my weight. I’ll have to get blood tests for my other stats.
I’ve been asked if I’m excited to be eating again, and the truth is, I’m probaby more anxious and frightened/concerned than I am excited. Don’t get me wrong, I *love* to eat, and really that’s the issue. I hope that I can successfully adopt good eating and exercise habits to hold on to the successes I’ve achieved over the last two months. It’s so very easy to put on weight, and I personally can do it at the drop of a hat. It won’t be an easy undertaking to continue to drop weight after my magic bullet cure is over. It’d be easier to just fast my way down to my goal weight, and perhaps in the future I might end up doing just that, but I want to try my hand at adopting a more conventional means of achieving my goal and at the same time learn healthy habits.
Anyhow, it’s late and I need to hit the sack. One small note – I went to see The Dark Knight tonight – FANTASTIC.
