Doing 10 days of Water Fasting. Starting February 12, 2011
Reasons for Fasting:
For the past six weeks, my spirit is advising me to have a spiritual fast - - to connect with God and lose the excessive weight. I've tried once two weeks ago and failed miserably by going to Panera Bread and eating a whole salad drenched in dressing. I'm ready to fast and I would love to get encouragement, support and suggestions to start on this path that will eventually break the emotional and excessive baggage I've been carrying since my late teens/ early twenties. This blog and the people testimonies and brutally honest of this holistic lifestyle change is helping me to jump on a leap of faith in less than 24 hours as take the journey to water fasting for 10 days. I would love to get everyone's input. Cheers!
Past Fasting Experience:
Two weeks, I did a one day fast and felt so in control of my life, body and spirit -- than I walked passed Panera Bread and reward myself with a Greek Salad sprinkled with heavy Feta Cheese and Dressing. I'm ready especially after reading Aarikha's and other testimonies.
I'm not a fan of fried foods but I love its liquidy sister Mountain Dew. Basically, I'm a meat and potatoes woman.
Whole Foods Multi Vitamines for women, potassium, and B-Complex Vitamins
Relevant Medical History:
My vitals are fine but with my weight at 206 with a height of 5'2, I need to make some real serious adjustments in my life.
State of Mind:
I lack focus and discipline in my life but from the bottom of my heart and my sleepless night I'm being told to reach beyond my life by fasting and hearing the inner voice.
I limit myself. I hate structure exercises and I use excuse not to walk but at the same time I love walking and being outside when the weather is warm.
Please provide insight into water fasting. I've tried everything under the sun from juicing to weight management programs -- now I'm going to try and listen to my spirit. Please provide me suggestions. Please. Cheers!
