Congratz on making it another day. Day 3 the body goes into cetosis, which means your body will start to use up fat cells for energy, this is the beginning of real weight loss.
Here is my first 10 day water fast diary…
Tue 21st “July 2008.
Day 1…I arose early this morning, knowing that today was the start of my water fast, i had mentally prepaired myself 2 days prior.
I read up on the benifits of water fasting ie…”Mind, Body, and Spiritually.”
Cleansing the body of “Toxins.
There is also the added factor of rapid waight loss.
Through out this first day, i have been constantly plagued by a rumbling stomach, and hunger cravings,food is allways on my mind
It is now 1.30am, i have battled the cravings and time to end my first fast day.
Day 2…i have awoken with a bit of a soar head, and the cravings for food are worse now, but i am drinking pleanty of water.
i walked 2 miles today, not sure if that was a good idea.
4pm i fell asleep for a coupple of hours, when i awoke i was so hungry.”I managed to stave off the hunger by reading a book.
My water intake is around 3 liters a day.
I stayed up until 2am, went to bed still with food cravings.
Day 3…I couldnt sleep last night, even though i was really tired.
I got up at 9.30am,I felt as though i had been hit by a bus,i feel really drained today, the hunger is subsiding, but i am a bit shaky.
later in the day i walked about 4 miles. I really dont how i maneged that !
I think that i am starting to find hidden abilities through weakness, i think that when you are at your weakest thats when you start to become stronger, maby thats why i started this fast….amongst other things, iv noticed that i am starting to feel a bit more peacefull.
Went to bed late, not really that hungry.
Day 4…I awoke at 7am, still having sleeping problems, when i did sleep i was dreaming about food.
I am starting to notice some improvement on my skin, i have noticed i feel a bit bloated,
I looked up the net about being bloated, so i have decided to take a salt water flush, 4 teaspoons of salt to 1 ltr water and drink all at once,
Its 8pm i have taken the salt enema….YUK…”This has to be the most revolting thing iv taken in my life,
“Later on the “Hevens opened up !
It has taken 1hour 40mins to work through my system, and is not nice.
Went to bed at 12.
Day 5…I have had a great sleep last night, this morning i feel energized, with feelings of being more a peace within myself,i feel as though i have a bounce in my step today, but i have niticed that my kidneys are soar today, but nothing really painfull.
Tonight i will be trying something new, “Meditating a 1st for me.
Its now 11 pm, i have “Meditated and found it to be very relaxing. I feel my “Mind body and, “Spirit are moving back into balance, its a really strange feeling, over the last 5 days i have been trying to heal myself from the inside out, and it is trully working, over the years, i have tryed to heal myself from the outside in, this was to no avail,
This is an amazing learning, and healing experience for me.
Its 1am now and time to finish another day.
Day 6…This morning i feel really refreshed and started praying to “God for guidance in my life, i feel so peacefull, almost to the extent of being closer to “God, this is the first time i have felt this, in a very long time.
This is similar feelings to when i was baptised, in the sea 4 years previously. I broke down crying, before i was baptised, but had the same “Spiritual peace within.
11pm, my reflection over today, my life is really changing, my water intake, is about 3-4 liters.
Time to end another day.
Day 7…This morning i feel fine, energy levels seem to be dropping a little bit, but nothing i cannot handle.This is an amazing experiance for me.
11pm i have been reading my bible today quite a lot and reflecting on my past, i am definitally getting deeper into myself and my veiws on lots of things.
End of day 7.
Day 8…This morning i awoke with a feeling of well being, food is the furthast from my thoughts, i have been starting to get cold hands,so iv made an appointement to see the doctor to have a check up,
3 pm back from the doctors, and given the all clear so thats good.
9pm my last log for tonight; iv been feeling cold lately, so iv cranked the heating up to keep warm, when walking long journeys i get breathless so i have to rest more.
Day 9…Real peace is now really hitting me, I have never felt like this before.
7pm I am thinking and reflecting now a lot ! I am even starting to think lots more on the childreen in other countrys still srarving to death,
I think now that i am closer with the inner “Spirit.
1am.. I have been lost in thaught all day.Past emotions are starting to surface,
tomorrow is my last day on water
Day 10…Its finally here,my last day on water, tonight i will finish with an salt enema.
11pm my final reflection !…this has been such a journey for me and glad i held on for this 10 days on water alone, i will do this again in the future, i have cleaned some of the cobwebs from the closet and more “Spiritually at peace with myself, and others.
This was a daily account of my very first water fast in 2008.
My starting waight was 13st 4lbs.
My waight afrer 10 days on water only was 12st 1lbs
Best regards keith.
