Wow! Good for you! You are doing fabulous! Or is it flab-u-less? I just made that up and it may sound a bit cheezy. Ok. It was cheezy.
Twenty-one days. Wow. You are truly an insperation. I am fast approaching my one week mark tomorrow of strictly water fasting with the occasional every other day cup of ginseng diet tea. I don't know you but yet I am so proud of you.
I really felt that it was God's will to go on a fast. I would have never venture this without the strenght I have received from our Lord. It is amazing.
I am also a mother, a married sahm to 3 wonderful kiddos. I have to preapre all 3 meals and snacks every day. I serve them their food. I clean off the dirty plates and put away the food. It is tempting at times. But I think, why do I want this food? This is what made me this way. It will still be here after the fast.
You are really strong. I know what you are facing. This is my first fast ever. I went head first with water only. I know this is a start of a new me. I can feel it.
All of the side effect you listed accurately fit me. The past 2 days I have felt back pain, discomfort in my legs, and nauseated. Thanks for sharing your experience and story.
I am also chatting back and forth with another woman who has entered her second week. I truly admire the effort put forth by the two of yall. I am sure there are many more out there, but I have yet to interact with them.
Yeah. My main goal was to lose weight. I am tired of being this way. But I instead of merely losing, I have gained. I have gained more spiritiality and a calmer sense. I am no longer the raging mother. Praise the Lord.
I am so excited about the changes. I plan to fast til Agust the 24th. I feel so guilty focusing on the weight though. I started dieting and exercising on 6-27-07 weighing in at 214lbs. I started my fast 6/21/07 at 200lbs. Today I am at 188lbs. My ultimate goal is to reach my 130s. I know I can do it.
