Day before eight-day fast begins...

So, tomorrow, June 22nd, I begin my eight-day water fast. Eight days specifically because on the ninth I will be getting on a plane to Venice and will be interrailing (travelling by train) around Europe for 24 days, and I figure it wouldn't be a great idea to try that while weak and lightheaded. However, I think I can manage coming gently down from the fast while on holiday.
So, to cut a very long story short, I admit that my main motivation is weight loss - but tied in with that is a desperate desire to change my eating habits. My starting weight is 119 lbs (8 st 7) and while at first glance that may seem small, you must take into account that I reach barely 5-foot-nothing and I have a pear shaped body with lots of fat stored around my butt and thighs. It's not a good look and it's depressed me for a long time. So! I'm hoping that this fast will get me down to 112 lbs - eight stone, and a healthy weight for my height. I'll post every evening how each day goes, my emotional and physical state and my weight. Wish me luck!
