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. The 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. Just so you know, I'm 21 years old and went from 163 lbs to 147. I want to get under 140 and stay under that. My email is email@example.com.
