You can loose the weight for sure.
I'm on day 28 and I lost 26lb so far, it's about a lb a day.
I'm going for 40 days too!! I'll be done on June 11th.
I'm going to a party too today and I won't be eating, my goals of health and the weight loss are more important than some food.
+ I'm keep telling myself that anything I want to eat will be there after the 40 days!!
Good luck to you!
If I can do this you can too!
Ps: When I get discourieged, I pull out the clothers I'm going to wear when the fast is over, that always cheers me up!
