    If anyone read that long winded post about my recent Vitamix Purchase this is the picture that changed in my order status.
    As soon as I seen that picture I was curious why it was out of the box and showed a plunger and is on some guys counter.
    Sure enough that pictured Vitamix is what I received with the plunger that wasn't supposed to come with it.
    If I'm not satisfied with the next Vitamix I will just have to get a refund and buy directly from Vitamix and wait a few weeks.

    Day 16
    8/11/2020
    Weight = 259

    Fasted 21 Hours
    Got a little extra sleep this day.
    Did a bit of cooking.
    Made a Butternut Squash Soup and transferred it to the Vitamix which works well.
    I let it cool down to 120 F to be a bit more safe.
    I also made a Chicken Chili with Sweet Potatoes with the last of the 2 Chickens I boiled a few days back.
    1 Mile walk with the dogs.
    Went out from 9pm till Midnight to watch the Meteor Shower.
    Not the best that I have witnessed but we did see one huge fireball streaking across the sky.
    Probably seen 20 to 30 total before we called it.
    Most likely a bit too close to the City Lights which hindered the viewing.

    Day 16 Intake

    1 Bowl Butternut Squash Soup (450)
    Big Vegetable Salad (350)
    1 Bowl Chicken Chili (450)
    20 oz Smoothie (400)
    30 Raw Almonds (210)
    1 Hard Boiled Egg (75)

    Day 17
    8/12/2020
    Weight = 259

    Fasted about 20 hours.
    I didn't get to weigh in on this day.
    I did just weigh myself at 2 am on 8/13/2020 and got a reading of 257.2 pounds.
    Played a very long session in two separate Casinos and didn't have much time to focus on the schedule.
    I cheated a bit, sorta.
    After being told at one Casino, that my players card has been revoked, I am now looking to Vacation up in Reno.
    Amazon sent me another Vitamix before I returned this one.
    I find it difficult not to just keep both but I am planning on returning one of them.
    They give you a month to do this but I don't understand why they sent me a replacement before I gave the first one back.
    It's an obvious test of my character to see if I've made any positive progress over the years.

    Day 17 Intake

    1 Roast Beef Sandwich (385)
    1 Pay Day Candy Bar (240)
    2 Cans of V8 (120)
    1 Hard Boiled Egg (75)
    1 Cup Cottage Cheese (225)

    Your really hardcore, with that 1300 cal avg, hope you can sustain it. That's usually the average caloric intake, for women in the 120-130 lbs range. If your feeling okay and dropping the weight, that's what ultimately matters. Lol for that payday bar.

    I'm kinda Gung Ho or Stubborn when I get my mind right.
    I grew up with a lunatic, crazed Vietnam Vet Father who was a LRRP and actually enlisted in the Army instead of being Drafted.
    I was pretty close to joining the Airborne Rangers at 19 years old myself but I didn't have enough commitment at that time in my life.
    I was worried I might be too erratic and end up going AWOL or get in some other mess so I opted against it.
    Let's not forget that I did do a 30 day Juice Only Fast and found that easy.
    I could of gone another 30 days on that or more but I thought I had it all figured out once I dropped 40lbs.
    Where I really messed up was not realizing you just have to eat a certain amount of calories per day and stop.
    Get your proper vitamins and protein and you should be fine.
    Most of my life I was a very thin to a somewhat thin Athlete so basically I still have that body type.
    I used to constantly play basketball. racquetball, workout and lift weights.
    I basically got very lazy 10 to 15 years or so ago.
    That sort of thing happens to some of us Americans when we are living the easy life.
    I just got a nice belly from Gravity and Eating whatever, whenever I wanted for 30+ years.
    I have always had a naturally high metabolism but I noticed that has changed after 40 to 42 years of age.
    I was busy playing a 15 to 16 hour VP session and sorta just cracked as I wanted some energy.
    That is why the dry sandwich with Roast Beef and White Bread from the Gift Shop and Pay Day Bar.
    Pay Day Bars are probably my favorite candy bar and I would figure they are the first energy bar before energy bars lol.
    That's also why the 2 V8s.
    They had Naked Juice but even the 50% less sugar ones are ridiculously sweet.
    That company has nice packaging and branding but I see no difference between that and soda lol.
    Too High in sodium but at 60 calories a can I couldn't say no.
    I don't find the intake of calories to be the problem.
    My main problem is being on a set schedule as it is always tumbling for me.
    My sleep pattern and eating schedule is constantly changing because I sleep when I want.
    So sometimes I go to sleep at 9pm and other times I go to sleep at 9am.
    I also don't worry about the fasting windows.
    I break that when I want and just restart.
    Sometimes I go over 18 or 20 hours and sometimes I only make it 10 to 12 hours.
    I don't think that matters as much as restricting your caloric intake.
    I haven't even started a somewhat serious exercise routine yet.
    I'm looking forward to that.
    I could increase calories as I burn more off if I wanted.
    Although, years ago I was on a kick where I was exercising twice a day and Juicing only with no food intake.
    I'm pretty sure I have the discipline down though.
    Watch your calories and get your daily nutrition.
    Eat Healthy and stay away from the Junk.
    Seems simple enough and I feel no cravings.
    If I ever have an ice cream craving which I haven't had but if I do, I will just freeze some fruit and make cream-less Ice Cream with my Juicer or the Vitamix Machine.
    It is amazing how just frozen bananas run through the juicer tastes just like Ice Cream to me.
    Sorry for the long winded reply.
    Just typing out my direct thoughts after reading your comment.
    Right now my body is eating its own fat.
    Things will get much more challenging once I get down to 235, 220 or 210.
    I do need to drink more water as I haven't focused on putting 2 to 4 quarts in me per day.
    Drinking more water is all around good IMO.
