Day 1 Wednesday December, 11, 2019
I read the day before about Abraham Lincoln.
“Thursday, the 30th. day of April, 1863, as a day of national humiliation, fasting and prayer. And I do hereby request all the People to abstain, on that day, from their ordinary secular pursuits,”
- Abraham Lincoln
Mom died at 7:16 PM that night, and I said prayers before she died.
I made a deal with God you tell me what I need to do.
I need absense of doing, so my mind can work.
This is a fight with God.
Tired of people ignoring the real problems.
Act like we are all perfect
Don't tell anyone
A prayer and humiliation
I am not going to stop living a life
Opposite of keeping busy
Food panic attack

I am not sure, urine is super clear. I know I lose weight from sweat, and exhaling, but still, super clear.
I am worried about my gastrointestinal microbiota, therefore will start eating a couple cloves of garlic daily. I did so, and suddenly I have had 3 stool movement today, as if I am getting cleaned out.

I am becoming worried about driving. I went to the coffee group at the corner, and was dizzy sitting at the chair, it is dangerous to pass out when driving.
I will leave the USA on January 5, 2020, and decided to start eating on Friday, January 3, 2020. I need 2 days of eating before the long, arduous trip to Guatemala; again, I don’t want to passout on a trip.
I am thinking about crispy bacon, I am thinking about Tacos, I am starting to plan on how to supply these foods quickly when I refeed.
Day 20 Monday December 30 2019 - 176 pounds
I am watching a lot of YouTube videos on refeeding, fasting, I think it is because I am winning.
