I tried to follow an IF yesterday. Didn't go so well. This is my second try in a week's time.
I don't know if it's age or diabetes, but I used to love fasting and it made me feel wonderful.
I was fine until bedtime rolled around. I had a lot of nervous energy and was tossing and turning. My body felt electrified, if that makes any sense. I wound up eating around 1 am because I felt so sick and shaky, but it didn't really help.
I think I maybe had 2 hours sleep, interrupted. So, now I'm irritable, tired, aching all over, and hungry! Not at all the desired effect.
I'm not sure if I will try another fast. I want it to work for me, but I just don't know that it will. I could do shorter fasts, but then I suspect I wouldn't really be getting all the health benefits and would screw with my glucose levels too much.
I heard from my pharmacy today and got approved for Victoza! Finally. I've been waiting since December. I don't have health insurance and my doctor was trying to get me into a program where I it for free.
It's a diabetes drug, but has the wonderful side effect of massive weight loss. Yay!
I'm a little nervous about the risks involved but my doctor assured me they were actually negligible and that she thought this would ultimately help me get off medication altogether.
I have a friend with 2 coworkers that were fired for stealing the samples of Victoza from their office. They weren't diabetic, it's just that good of a weight loss med!
Can't wait to try it.
