Doing 30 days of Juice/Water Fasting. Starting June 10, 2011
Reasons for Fasting:
Improve health, change habits, lose weight, and challenge myself
Past Fasting Experience:
I haven’t made any Fast. But I did a liquid diet for a month after a gastric bypass.
My regular diet isn’t healthy. Because of my surgery, I'm supposed to eat well and in small quantities, unfortunately I don’t follow the rules. That is why after losing 121lbs, I regained 44lbs. My lifestyle is a mess but just now I'm completing 5 days eating only fruits and vegetables, preparing my body to the fast.
Relevant Medical History:
I had surgery 4 years ago, a gastric bypass with a silastic ring around the portion of the stomach; it is assumed that this technique is more effective but you see I’m the exception. Initially my weight was 243lbs.
State of Mind:
I'm pretty anxious to know if I can handle this. I’m motivated and decided to do it. My relationship with God has been a little difficult lately and I want to take this process to reconcile myself with my spirituality.
I don’t know yet I hope none
I have a ring around the portion of the stomach that I use and that thing has been there for 4 years, I wonder if that would be a problem, if my body reject that thing. And I'm wondering if the bad absorption of calories and nutrients derived from the surgery is going to be a problem and how can I know when to stop because of that.
