I have fasted atleast 1x per year sometimes more for the past 20 years. These fasts were usually a week or two with one 3 week fast. This time around I set the intention to do a long fast maybe 40 days. Usually after the 1st three days my hunger subsides but this time around has been different. All day I have been wanting to eat. Perhaps this is coming up because I'm thinking about how long it's going to be before I eat again. Either way I will listen to my body.
My body has felt fine so far...tired at times and emotional. My lungs have purged a large amount of mucus and I'm beginning to get that incredible resonance to my voice that comes with fasting. It's a special opportunity to have this time of simplicity and see my body changing a little each day. I have about 20 lbs. I'd like to shed so I'm doing exercise every day and skin brushing which I try to do all the time even when I'm not fasting.
Thanks for listening and supporting me through the process.
