Day 18 8 y
Today is day 18 of my fast, suddenly I am feeling very hungry and feel like I want to throw up. The last four days were pretty good, occasionally I felt very weak that I couldn’t even climb up the stairs. Slowly my energy levels are rising up a bit. I weighed myself today and I lost about 27 pounds in total, which is pretty good. I think I am going to continue fasting as long as I can. I definitely want to go beyond 21 days.
Happy Fasting :) For me prayer is what got me through the rough times. visit the page

Officially two weeks of my fast is done, I feel pretty good but during the evening I get very weak and dizzy. My goal is to fast for 21days, if I can I will try to fast longer. I doing some light exercise by walking and stretching. So far everything is good, I still have some lower back pain. The fast got a lot easier and better since i first started. Now my body is so used to fasting that I sometimes forget which day I am on. Happy fasting everyone, stay focused.

Day 11 8 y
Today is day 11 of my fast, So far everything is good. Slowly my hunger pangs are disappearing. I was too tired to blog the past two days. Nothing interesting to report, besides that I walked for about 2hours and had a bm without any laxative tea or anything.
I feel great, I feel like I am finally at peace, even though I am not hungry anymore, there is a mental temptation to eat. I find that keeping myself busy, keeps my mind of food and sometimes I even forget I am fasting.

I am at the end of day 4. Today the feeling of hunger hit me so hard that I thought I was going to break my fast. I was able to re-focus with some duduk music. I am starting to get a very bad back pain and feeling a bit tired. I pray to god to carrying through out this fast. It is very important to me that I finish this fast as I planned.

I did feel very hungry last night, I just drank few bottles of water and tried to sleep. But so far everything is good, I just feel like my emotions are at it heights,
I feel like I would easily get mad, upset, sad, determined. Its interesting how water fasting can bring out all these emotions out. This time I am going to face my emotions and deal with it.
Good luck to everyone fasting, Those people who are hesitating to fast, please ... read more
Day 1 8 y
Day one of the fast
Today is day one of my water fast. I feel pretty good, I do have slight feeling of hunger. My mind is telling me ” oh its only day one, just eat something and you can start tomorrow”. But I have to stay committed and be strong. When fasting your mind can turn against you and tell you all kinds of things to make you feel like its ok to break the fast.
I usually find day 2 to be the most hardest, I find on day 2 temptation is the strongest. I am about 7 hours away from completing day one of the fast. I feel pretty good and keep reminding myself of all the benefits of fasting.

Day 3 9 y
Today is day three of the fast. I feel great and I do not feel hungry. Feeling little light headed but that is normal during a fast. I feel more alive and happy when fasting, rather than when eating. I am not hungry but my mouth waters whenever I smell food. Mentally I am staying strong and I think about all the reasons for fasting. I am trying to keep myself warm because it is freezing here. Some of the obstacles to fasting is temptation, boredom, fear and family and friends. When fasting you have to prepare yourself to face any obstacle and say to yourself you will not let your mind talk ... read more

Today is day 2 of the fast. Everything is going pretty good, I do feel hungry most of the time. I try to keep myself occupied, to get my mind of food. I was thinking what would be a good whole body workout. I came to the conclusion that jumping rope would be the best exercise and cheap. So tomorrow I am going to go get a jump rope. I know that when fasting plenty of rest is required. But I feel that you need to do some sort of exercise or stretching to help release toxins through skin. Overall, I am taking everything one day at a time and staying strong. visit the page
