Thanks for your company, WY. I have very much enjoyed your posts in the past and have learned a lot from you. Some say you are timid to start a long WF, that you hesitate much to do it. But then, your obvious persistence turns your hesitation into prudence. That to say you are a wise man..No one will know himself as well as you will know yourself the day you decide on a long WF. That will give you so much peace of mind and the certainty to fast as you wish to get your objective, whatever that is. This is important because most people who want to fast do not succeed out of ignorance and/or the fear this brings to them.
As of now, I decided like you to just think of one single day of fasting. In reality, I want to make it very long, or as long as possible, but I need to be true to myself and careful in my hopes. I want to be accountable and not set myself for repeated failures for having careless expectations because repeated failures would make any future long fast harder and harder.
I do not know how I will feel or handle my fast. I say I need it badly and some details about my health I will offer lately, but I want to be a little prudent and take it one day at a time, since I do not know myself much and this will be my first extended water fast.
