How Iím feeling right now
Ok so itís about 11:00 and Iím hungry. Iím trying to not think about food but itís hard. It does help being at work so at least I can stay busy. Iím just going to have to be strong and tough it out. I feel terrible and I really have to get this weight off of me. I kept telling myself itís all in my head itís mental. How mentally strong am I. Also, from what Iíve read the first 3 days are the hardest. Can I make through? I say yes I can and yes I will. I already know the hard part is going to be when I get home and itís a Friday too. I decided to start on Friday because Iíd have the weekends off. Since this is my first fast I thought it would be easier to deal with the detox symptoms at home.
Iím going to try an fast for about 35 days instead of 40 because Iím going on vacation 2 days after that. So I want to gently break the fast. If I can get to about 190 pounds by than I would be extremely happy. Weíll see!!! During my vacation Iím going to stick to mostly fruit and veggies, but I know Iím going to have a few not so friendly meals. I going to watch my weight so that I donít gain more than 5 pounds during my vacation. Once I come back from vacation I plan on doing another fast. I would like to get down to around 160ish but no lower than 150.
Iím excited about this journey and Iím looking forward to being a much healthier and a lot lighter. I know I can do this. I have to stay positive. Reading other peoples blogs who have accomplished their goals is so inspiring. I know I can do the same.
Why I choose to fast
Well I have tried every diet out there and I just canít seem to stick to it. So I starting education myself on fasting and though maybe this is what I need. I have really bad allergies, overweight, fatigued all the time, etcÖneed I go on. So this is extreme for me but I think this is exactly what I need. I choose to do a water fast because this seems a lot easier time wise than a juice fast. Right now I donít feel like juicing anything. I want to take this time for myself to meditate and pray and get my mind right. I NO LONGER WANT TO BE A SLAVE TO FOOD!!! This is so old and Iím so tired of it.
Weíll for those who are reading I want to apologize now for all of my typos. Also, Iíll be blogging often especially the times I feel like I want to cheat. I guess Iíll be carry my laptop around a lot.
Stay blessed and you can do it.
So I was reading about using salt substitute to keep you electrolytes up. I think Iíll take necessary precautions since this is not supervised. Luckily I have a nice treadmill in my garage already setup and ready to go. Iíll be doing a lot of reading and walking on it to keep me occupied. Iím fortunate to have a support family so theyíre willing to give me space and not eat in front of me.
