Hi! Your situation sounds similar to mine! I'm just on day one of a 40 day juice fast. I've done 17 day fast before and lost 20 lbs. It went well but in hindsight I think it would have been so much easier if I had had support through it, because I was pretty much doing it on my own and was the only one who knew about it. If you or anyone else on here wants to be fasting buddies, I'm in!
