The way to succeed is to decide what you are going to do and stick with it. The last two times I was not as set on sticking it out for the whole 10 days, and came up short of it. This time I decided to do it, unless something happened unforseen. I have two more days after today, and am glad I stuck it out. A bunch was having an Italian dinner tonight, groan, groan, but it will still be on the earth when fast is over, although I do want to avoid that type of food that got me so fat to begin.
