I'm on day 2, technically at 41 hours with my last meal at 6pm Tuesday evening.
I go between feelings of feeling euphoric, mentally sharp and Wonder Woman strong at my emotional mental strength and feeling overwhelmed, frustrated and hungry - but I think most of the hunger is emotional, habitual.
My most difficult time was sitting at dinner with my family last night. The smells of the food and the fresh veggies espeically made me so close to reaching for one, but I didn't, and somehow that makes success all the sweeter. I feel empowered to know that my strength over food can be over-ruled, and I do have willpower. I was NOT exibiting my will power over the holidays and I needed this boost to feel fit and strong again. It's working!
People at work think I'm crazy and some think it's quite extreme. I assure them it's safe and I physically feel great. It's amazing how many people wouldn't even consider this easy, simple, and FREE method of clearing your head, and your body of toxins - both mental and physical.
When I'm struggling emotionally, I remember how good it felt to overcome my desire to eat and that seems to work.
I have been squeezing a slice of lime into my distilled water when I need something different - overall drinking about 1 gallon a day. I'll also put lemon into hot water and I like that better than tea, but yesterday did call for a Yogi Ginger Lemon tea in the afternoon. Black coffee this morning (1/2 cup) made me jittery so I stopped drinking that.
Thanks for the support! I plan on fasting until breakfast this Saturday, where I'll go all day with fruits and veggies.
