Fat Chance - Day 2

After one day of fasting:

I went to sleep easier, slept longer without waking, and got up easier.  

There is no less pain.

My ambition is up quite a bit.  In spite of the snow, I got up and went to Home Depot - an errand I’ve been putting off because it just seemed like too much effort.

Stats: BP 111/71; pulse 72.  Down one pound per my scale, but of course that’s all water weight;

I ate about 2 teaspoons of coconut oil yesterday, and about 1 teaspoon of cheese.  This was all to help me swallow my pills.  I got somewhat nauseated anyway.

Not feeling particularly hungry, but I was getting really thirsty.  I find it hard to just drink water.  It makes me nauseated.  I was desperate enough to drink about 2 tablespoons of low-calorie juice this morning, but that isn’t going to be enough liquid.  So I bought iceberg lettuce and ate about ⅛ of it.  That should be about  2 grams of carbs, 1 of which is fiber.  And lots of water.  That buffered my stomach enough to swallow a lot of pills.
