Summary of last (2nd and 3rd attempt) water fast as well as first day on this 4th attempt.
Date: 5/5/2014 4:14:44 AM ( 8 y ago)
My 2nd attempt to water fast I went to 3 days and my 3rd attempt I went up to 6 days. My 2nd attempt I'd say was real rough. I learned a few things and did better that third attempt. I did drink a couple of unsweetened herbal teas to help me and it did. I only sip water as I am careful not to trigger digestive reflexes when larger amounts of water are taken in too quickly. I felt so much better overall going up to sixth day. One thing to add that was tough during the 3rd attempt was the difficulty sleeping. We shall see how this fast goes. I hope with a cleaner system things will be less challenging than the last. I really want to make it to day 10 this time. I just want to try to focus on spiritual healing as well this time. I have been so bitchy when on the water fast. Deprivation/detox headaches made me so cranky. I want it to be different this time. It's 2am and I better get some sleep.
So my starting weigh in is 140.8lbs and 32% body fat (I am 5 feet, 3 inches). I woke up this morning almost 7am feeling very lethargic. I took some Walnut Hull/wormwood/clove tincture for parasite cleansing through the weekend and up the dosage yesterday. Perhaps that is what maybe causing the fatigue.
I started my morning with isotonic sea salt solution enema and coffee enema to clear things out for this fast.
I have to say I've been pretty emotional already. It's just carryover from the last 2 weeks. I feel overwhelmed and exhausted. I'm starting this fast in a very highly agitated state. I want to make sure I do some serious praying and meditation and get myself in the right place to do this. This fast is a physical/spiritual/emotional cleansing for me. I know my strength, conviction, focus must come from my spirit and not by mere will power.
Ohhh and just to clarify with this water fast, I will include a couple of cups of herbal tea (nothing added). I usually do chamomile or peppermint. As long as I slowly sip on it, I do not see it interfering with the process. If anything, Chamomile helps me relax and sleep while peppermint helps with all the funky internal odors that seem to come out during a fast.
I am off to do the spiritual work and have some healing delicious water. I am determined to stay positive and loving.
Love, light, and peace to all.
I took two extra naps. First one was at 10:30am for almost 2 hours. I just felt exhausted. I woke up and had a 2nd cup of tea and did a tub soak with epsom salt for 15 minutes. I just felt so much better after the bath. It definitely lifted my spirit. Unfortunately, things just got challenging when dealing with my kids and I was losing my patience quickly. By 5pm I was ready for another nap. It lasted about an hour but still didn't feel it was enough. I could absolutely go back to sleep right now and stay knocked out for the rest of the night. That's fine, I would rather be tired and sleepy rather than restless and unable to fall asleep. So long Day 1 and hello Day 2.
(After the fast I decided to go back and edit this info. I thought a little more background about myself might help for those people who have much much more weight they want to lose. I have had 4 kids. I started my weight at 118-123 lbs before having kids. With each pregnancy I gained 60+ pounds. The first time it was easier to lose the weight. All but 5 pounds. With each pregnancy after it just got tougher and tougher. When I had my last child in December 2009 my weight went up to 190s. It was really hard on my body. I have suffered with a lot of joint pain issues. I lost most of the weight with multiple attempts with the master cleanse. So, I just want to encourage many others who have much to lose that I do understand the pain, the aches, the frustrations, the physical/emotional/mental/psychological burden. It's been a long road and it's definitely far from the end. As long as I am in this body and not dead, it shall go on. I just want to say take it one try at a time. Each attempt is a step in the right direction. A learning process. There is no failure. As long as you are trying you are succeeding)
