Thank goodness i got thru the 10 days. It wasnt that it was hard for me to do, i think my mind and will power are pretty strong and i just did it. but i did not enjoy it. i missed the juice i missed having some variety. and most of all i was pretty much hungry the whole time. last night i went to bed feeling really awful and didnt sleep well at all. so back on the juice tomorrow to see the last 5 days of fasting thru. i read on the mc forum what pepe had written about not looking at the scales and seeing fasting as a cleanse and not a weight loss program. it made me think about the reasons i wanted to do this fast. i wanted to:
1. lose weight
2. take a break from alcohol
3. eliminate or at least drastically reduce processed food
4. eat smaller amounts
5. restart a daily exercise routine, get fit
6. clean my system
The other thing was i noticed after my first 30 day fast i just couldnt eat certain things. things that were high in fat or salt. they tasted disgusting well actually i didnt even taste them the thougth was bad enough. i really preferred fresh veggies and fruit so i wanted to rid myself of wanting bad food. i also ate less because i just didnt need to eat very much food. so i am hoping these are there when i finish.
I dont look at a fast as a weight loss program or a diet. for me it is the fastest way to lose some extra pounds but also to put me back on tract. and that comes from being really cleaned out. my body just doesnt want those foods taht are bad for me and that is what i really want.
Yes i am a bit of a scale addict - but its not the only reason i fast. And it is a complete change that is needed not just a month. But it is what works for me.
So here goes the next 5 days, it really doesnt feel like i have been fasting that long. i could probably go longer but it is time to start the hard work. and i just feel like my body needs some food to up the exercise program. im not making any decisions until i get to 30 days and then i will go from there.
Oh and strangely enought today i have had feelings all day of wanting to stop. i really think it has to do with beign hungry - bring on the juice!
