Thanks Martha, Thanks Sky. You ladies are an inspiration. Sky, you just got off of a long-term fast didn't you? Good luck on your fast thus far Martha!
Well, I started again today. I have made it about 24 hours so far. Better than I had been doing (would usually give in at about 14-16 hrs, but I still have a long way to go. I plan on going 10+ days. These first few days are certainly the hardest, but I know that I am strong enough, I just have to make up my mind and really do it.
To answer your question Sky, I tend to "break" the fast with a piece of fruit, and once I do that, it stimulates the appetite. I tend to overdo it, eating big portions of raw dried fruits and nuts. I've been reading up on the Raw foods as well, and would like to make these foods the staple parts of my diet.
I'm glad things are going well for the both of you. God bless you ladies!
