Hi All,

I'm beginning a water fast tomorrow; planning on 14 days, but may extend, depending on how I feel. I'm going to do a little experiment and see if I'm able to continue to exercise as close to my normal intensity as possible (without sweating too much out).

Anyone else interested in doing the fast (you don't need to exercise lol)?

Hi! I am starting my fast tomorrow. May 18th. I think you started today? If so we should support one another. We will be a days difference and the duration of our fast won't be the same as I am doing a 25 days. I just signed up for this site today and I really am excited to get the support I need to be successful!:)

Hi Crinkle,

Welcome! I'm glad to have someone else doing it at the same time. :-)

Is this your first fast? Probably not, if you're doing 25 days. ;-) I've never tried going past 14...

I look forward to hearing how things are going for you.

Hi!
Yay my first fasting buddy! haha I am so excited to be talking to someone about fasting that isn't talking negatively about it! :silly:
I have done several fasts before but it's been a few years when I was alot healthier! Now I am 35 lbs heavier and just hate how I've let myself get to this state of health. I just know if I have the motivation to do something I can do anything! It's how my mind works. I just really want to have my old self back and I keep reminding myself...you only live once and you are only young once. I am the only one who can make a change for me. I have never felt so icky inside. I just feel horrible constantly. I'm convinced it's the toxins of fast food and junk food making me feel that way.

Anyways let the journey begin, I know it won't be easy! The rewards in the end will be well worth it!

Hi All,

How are your fasts going?

I was going great until today, when I went to a new friend's house (we know each other through the gym)...and she insisted I try her hummus. It was GREAT, but now my stomach is kinda hurting...lol I took a teaspoon...fortunately, the pita was made with wheat (I'm gluten free), so I didn't have any of that.

I'm not sure what to do now...I've never eaten while fasting...would I still be in ketosis?

Wsdrradiogirl,
I completely understand how bumming that would feel! I think if you had one teaspoon of hummus won't hurt you lol and I would say you are still in Ketosis! I am not a fasting expert but that's just my opinion for what it's worth! I love love love hummas and this makes me want some!! haha

So for as what you should do now...just keep on keeping on! You are getting closer and closer to your goal!! :) I started Saturday instead of Friday as I forgot I had plans to go to dinner with some friends. At least I hadn't started yet other than Friday morning! We got this, we're ladies so we can do anything we set our minds to! Right?! lol

I had a visit with a friend after 40 hours of fasting and had my kids eating her food in front of me and well, my resistance was weak. I decided to restart today at 6PM after having a 26 hour interruption. I am still in and this time, I'm going to focus on limiting social interactions that surround getting together for food/treats ect.

I'm glad to have fasting buddies.

Good luck!

I'll check back in tomorrow.

Caroline

Caroline,
You've accomplished 40hrs and so there's something to say for that! :) I wish I could taste food! :( 3rd day is not a good day for me, I feel like crapola! I don't think I will be doing much of anything today!

@Radiogirl Welcome back! Glad to see you. How is the fasting going? I would think that hummus wouldn't have too much carbs in it, so you may not have ruined ketosis. Think about it this way, how many grams of carbs can you have on Atkins diet and still be in ketosis? Don't let it ruin your fast. Dang people who would sabotage you fasts LOL.

@Caroline Great job jumping back into fasting. Hey, what is the story behind your photo? What is in your hand? I noticed your photo a few months ago when I was reading old bogs, and now you're back and fasting again, so I guess I'm supposed to ask. There doesn't seem to be a way to enlarge your photo to see it more clearly.

@Crinklemynose That food will be waiting for you when you're ready to end the fast and believe me it will taste amazing, but don't give up your fast just to taste food. Today is probably the hardest day of the fast for you....just get through the day. Tomorrow will be easier, and the day after a little bit easier. You can do this!

Thanks, lisa! I was unexpectedly laid off from my job a few weeks ago, so that's kind of why I fell off the face of the earth. Things are getting better (I hope!). :-)

I actually decided to break my fast...or, I think I'll call it 'suspend' my fast, as I do want to continue to fast, I just don't think I'm emotionally able to right now...my partner's mother is dying, so my partner went to be with her...about 2000 miles away. When it rains, it pours.
