I'm on day 5 today. Yes, I still have the temptation to eat and my stomach acts likes it's hungry. However, it is NOTHING like the ravenous hunger I encountered within those first 3 days. I also have so much motivation from getting to this point that it spurs me on. On the first 3 days I just had to bully my way through it. I had a sour attitude and was resentful that I had to do it in the first place. Yesterday and today, I feel like my goal is a certainty and nothing can stop me. I will say that I did a home enema of water only and that made me feel much better last night before I went to bed.
Should anyone wonder, I did not ease into this fast. I ate until 2:30a.m. before I started it. That's how bad my fear of being without food was, and why I was so desperate to do this fast. My body will have a lot of detoxing to do, so I know enemas will have to be a big part of this journey. I don't want all of those toxins creeping back into my system.
In some ways, I'm glad I had this weight struggle early in life. It gives me time to make changes and adapt my life style. I want to live a long healthy life full of activity. I've only been less active and obese for about 3 years. This gives me even more hope of being able to keep the weight off once I get it off. I used to eat mostly healthy foods, and I was a very active person. I will say that fast food has always been a part of my diet. Limiting my trips to the drive thru window will be difficult at this point, but well worth it.
Well, enough about me, this is about how YOU can do it. I am no pro faster. I am currently an obese person seeking ways to overcome my food addictions, like many of you. It is trite, but true, if I can do it, so can you. I hope this helps.
