I recently organized a fasting group that started December 10th. There were about 5 or so of us and it was pretty great. I fasted for 8 days and lost about 17 pounds. I would like to fast again soon and would be more than happy to fast with you on the 28th. Even if I don't go 40 days, I think I could be of a help just because those first couple days are the hardest. Once you get through those, it's actually a breeze. I wrote an entry everyday on an online journal called xanga. Would you be interested in blogging on xanga? Let me know. I would comment on your blogs and offer encouragement.
