Doing 21 days of Juice Fasting. Starting November 1, 2011
Reasons for Fasting:
Currently (4/1/2008): Weight loss. I've been asking God to call me to a fast. Although he's not said a resounding YES, I've not heard a no either. I've gained weight in the last 5 months that has been alarming. I was in school and maintaining okay, but all of a sudden I hit 30. Now I can't loose a pound even though I've watched what I've eaten and I've started an intense workout. I just know I need to get this extra weight off. I'm starting to feel the effects of over weight like when I was pregnant and couldn't loose the weight. I might not be patient enough with my self, but I also know a fast will show me where I despretely need God and where He needs to work in my life. Right now I feel like I'm doing O-K. But am I really in his sight?
Past Fasting Experience:
Starting in 2009, I've done multiple fast. Usually juice fast. Longest fast 21 days on juice. Partner with husband on some. Other's have been on my own. In 2009 was my longest and best. It's April 2013, our lives are in the process of changing in this Spring if only birthdays and changing of season, but changing. I look forward to the change and I hope I can stick with this fast until Penecoast!!!
Felt I'm doing well, but I think I'm eating too many dense calorie foods. So maybe that's where I need to focus change on. My kids are active and doing well. But I want to keep that the norm. Healthy. I don't fry foods or eat alot of junk food. But Pizza is a staple and so is hamburgers from the gril.
Relevant Medical History:
History of low blood pressure. Family history of high blood pressure and cholesterol. Diabetes and obesity.
Present Medication or Drug Usage:
State of Mind:
Depressed. Not optomistic about I'm doing currently. Weight is a huge facotr for my personal feelings, I'd love to be just in my size 8 again. I was doing well with m body image. But not now. I feel fat and ugly cause that's what I see. Time for a change. God help me!!!
Don't know of any limitations except maybe I need to be able to be alert for kids. They are more active than I am when I eat normally. 🙂
How do I get modivation to continue when all I want to do is eat that one piece of food?
