I found a very helpful website, worth reading before starting a fast: http://www.freedomyou.com.
Start with "ten tips for a successful fast. there is a lot throughout the site.I found it gives some well needed strengh for when things get tough.
Yesterday was tough for me , which was strange since it usually does not get this tough before the third day. Days 3 and 5 are my dreaded days, when I get so bored of not eating and fed up with mental hunger that I usually throw the towel in, even though my resolve was strong to start with and I can manage physical hunger well. Actually it gives me a light-headedness which I like because I also start to feel, see, smell, sense things more, and my heart starts to love much better, I start feeding on love.
Yesterday I had the first hints of this but also difficult moments when I just was so fed up with deprivation and sometimes just plain depressed. Ups and downs all day.
Maybe because I have started this fast many times.
I know I must just hang on till day 7 with ups and dreadful downs, go over the hurdle, then it will get much easier. After all what is seven days? Those first few days are not avoidable, success is on the other side, so I must just bear with it until I'm on the other side. That's all. Reminds me of the movie where Tom Hanks is shipwrecked on a small island for years and decides he has to go out to sea if he is to have any chance of being found by someone. He hits the coral riff every time and his raft gets thrown back. but he must keep trying until he manages, success is on the other side!
