Masshole--I like what you have to say. Thanks. And I hope you don't mind if I'm writing to you.
This is my 6th day--I've lost 17 pounds in six days...seems like a lot, though I'm happy that I'm losing weight. And I've felt fine. BUT is that too much too quickly? I've been drinking 6 per day: 4T lemon, 4T maple syr 1/10t cayenne and 12 oz water. Until today, I felt fine. Well, that's not true--yesterday (Sunday) I went to a festival and walked around a lot. I was pretty exhausted when I got home.
I'm trying to think of everything I can tell you about what is going on, because I'd like some help. I'm sure I haven't been drinking enough water. But ANY water is more than I usually drink. I'm liking water much better today.
Today started out fine, but by mid day I was very hungry. The thought of another lemonade was not appetizing. I'll still have two more to go in order to have six for the day. It's not my stomach that is hungry--I seem to feel hungry in my chest...that's the best description I can give you. Also, it's the first time I've been hungry during the entire fast.
I've bordered on indigestion each day, but this day it seems a little stronger.
I'd like NOT to stop this fast, Masshole. Do you have any suggestions for me? This experience has been spiritual, a cleansing, and losing weight. I am grateful for all three.
I am on the verge of eating, but I'd truly like not to. What do you think?
