Reasons for starting my water fast

I'm so ready and excited to start this fast tomorrow. I've done a few shorter fasts in the past, but I'm ready to go the full 40 this time around.
I haven't been in a good state of mind the past year. I eat like crap, I feel like crap, and look like crap, you know..the works! I'm ready for a change of lifestyle and better mental clarity and state of mind and I can't think of a better way to achieve that than a water fast. I'm ready for a new chapter and a new start. I want to feel good again. I want to chase my dreams. As cheesy as that sounds! I've just been really holding back with what I want to do in life, and it has to stop!!
I do have a bit of weight to lose. I've struggled with over eating all of my life, but especially with the depression I've experienced this past year. I am around 5'9 and about 165 pounds, so I'm not terribly overweight, but the job I'm pursuing does require me to be in great shape. I'll officially weigh in tomorrow morning though, just for records and progress tracking. I've also struggled with dry skin, acne, and extreme facial flushing to where my face is tomato red and hot. Not attractive! I've also had swollen glands and lymph nodes for awhile now, and just constantly feel sick and gross and overall TERRIBLE.
I'm really hoping water fasting will help with not just my relationship with food, but all of my other little problems as well. I've done my research for about a year now, and always wanted to fast. I never thought I could, but I'm finally ready now. I just want to be healthy. So anyways. That's the story. I will be updating frequently!
