Julliet,

Good luck with your fast. The posters on this Board are very supportive, whether the fast is short or long, dry or water, etc. Best wishes! :)

Hey Julliet, welcome and good luck with your fasting. I, too will be fasting tomorrow. I may try to stick with fasting for three days but I have a social/eating event on Saturday night. So I can't go past that. Have you done any previous fasts? I've done many 1-3 day fasts as well as fasts of 7, 9,10,and 16 days. I'm small so I can't do fasts longer than that. But I'm here to support you with your goal. It is a great feeling to set a goal and succeed at it. Tonight I'm having deep fried tofu and probably a swig of coconut oil as my fatty prefast meal. I promise to check in tomorrow to share our progress.

David,

I'm afraid I don't agree with this point of view.

;) :laugh:

Helloo.. glad to find that you are starting a fast tomorrow as I am starting one also and glad for the support. My last fast was a 7 day water fast about 2 months ago... Im not putting a time frame on my fast it will be dependent on how my body feels but I intend to pass 10 days.

I have been wanting to complete a 30 day fast for a while now but have not been able to.. my longest was 12 days.

I am 30 years old, male... and I will be sharing my experience as I go along.

Pleasure to meet you Julliet and all

This is a wonderul community and so inspiring! I love the knowledge and support that this site provides. Best of luck with your fast!

Hello All,
Thank you for the great meeting here. I haven't expected so much support.
I did 12 days of water fast on May 2012. I remember that I had enough energy for everything. I don't know how to be now...

WED, Nov 14
Day 1


09:00
I am starting my fasting with 166lbs (75.9kg). My stomach is full of food and I think in 2-3 days the food on it go out so I will lose some more pounds first days because of that. I am holding a water also so in 3 days I will have my real weight.

I am at work now, feeling strange and ugly, I don't have mood, I am a little depressed. I feel my stomach strange... I know that I will be "the other person" in some days and hope never feeling like now.

Where are you from, Ice? So you have started your fast this morning, right? Not from yesterday?

The great thing is the fact I started my fasting with starting this topic and I can see how many hours I am on fast. Till now - only 15 hours :) .

Hello everyone. Welcome Ice and good luck with your fast...funny, I did a 10 day fast in May this year...I wonder if we fasted together at some point. Cool cool cool.

Anyway, I'm a little over 36 hours into my dry fast. I took some photos of my belly...that helped me in my past fasts by seeing the comparison of my body on food. I wish I had taken photos before my 36 hour fast Saturday into Sunday...that would have been telling. Although I'm slim, I still need to lose some belly fat that wasn't there in May. You can see the picture in my blog from May...great motivation to reread your own blogs. I'm so glad David was able to reinstate my account.

About me: I am recently separated from my husband of 23 years...huge change in my life...all positive and creating tons of growth. So my focus has NOT been on whether I have fat on my belly. :laugh: I bought myself a set of boobs so now my belly bulges are not so noticeable :P

But I find myself well above the weight that I had maintained for years after losing 20 lbs...I refuse to allow myself to spread just because I'm in my forties. So I am back to Fasting Connection and I find it is just as wonderful as I remember with some old faces and some new ones as well. Hi everyone!!!

So back to my 36 hour dry fast...it went really well. The foods I ate yesterday were all whole foods and vegan as well. I had no refined flour nor caffeine. Nevertheless, I did have a tiny headache. Luckily it wasn't too intense and it's gone now. I slept for 10 hours last night, which was wonderful...both because it helped get me through the fasting hours and because I was feeling weak and exhausted.

I plan to continue dry fasting today and tomorrow. If needed I will have some water if my body cries out for some. But for now, I'm feeling great. I'm going to keep busy and if I do stop in to visit my mom or someone else, I'm going to let them know ahead of time I am fasting. My mom hates it when I fast, because she doesn't get to show her love to me by feeding me, but she usually respects that I'm fasting even if she doesn't agree.

Last night I was very tempted to make up some broth from this vegan chicken flavor powder that I just bought and haven't gotten to try. I remember Chelseagirl did a fast where she did zero calorie beverages such as broth and tea. But I wanted to keep the fast pure so I went to sleep instead. :o) ;) I made it!

I'm not as committed to these next two days of fasting but I'm going to try to stick to it now that I got that first day out of the way. Saturday night I'm meeting a friend for dinner, so I can't fast longer than that.
