Doing 20 days of Water Fasting. Starting October 17, 2010
Reasons for Fasting:
Hello All, Just looking for a little support, as I post my progress and hope to get through this with only positive outcomes. Starting Weight 150 Current Weight: 141 No. of days on water-only fast: Today is day 3 Symptoms Experienced: Fatigue, slight dizziness when sometimes standing. Hunger pangs/tummy grumbles. I’m not sure what my goal is with this fast beyond the weight loss. I hope it becomes a spiritual journey as well. I have had some hunger pangs but nothing yet a little patience can handle. This is my first fast ever and though I’ve read the cautions, I’m in a remote location where it’s not possible to do fresh juice or even lemon fasts; I don’t have access to a juicer or large quantities of fruit even. Anyway, prior to this I was working out regularly, eating veggies, meats, legumes, and fruits but not really watching portions. I’m not addicted to any stimulants; I had already long ago stopped drinking caffeine or diet products. Just eating three solid meals a day. And the scale wasn’t moving. I had reduced calories prior to the fast and started looking up all methods of weight loss. Well, yes I’m a little impatient and stubborn and after researching extensively on water fasts, I feel I can handle it. I haven’t had any headaches or major symptoms yet, so I hope that’s a good sign. I will take it to 10 days, and see how I’m feeling and how the scale is. I have been concerned about hair loss if I decide to take the fast longer than 10-14 days. I wanted to get to 120 pounds, which may be unrealistic, but that will be to offset normal weight gain when coming off the fast. Hope I can make it.
