I am slightly overweight but my main concerns are- high blood pressure, terrible skin, hair loss

I have done few short term water only fasts - typically 3 days, all supervised
This would be the first time I am doing a 7 day water fast.
And I really want to get healthier and feel better in general.

I hope I get support and tips from sharing my experience with everyone here.
I will be updating my body stats after each post.

Good Luck Nini. It seems that a lot of us struggle with giving up food. It helps to visualize what you want most, and what the fasting will bring you.

Feel free to join the June Fast Thread. That is where most of us communicate and support each other. I'll do my best to keep you motivated !

Day 0-

I just had some watermelon and I've been preparing my body for the upcoming fast.
For the last 3 days I ate fruits and occasionally had salad and trust me, it was not easy at all.


What I hope to achieve from this fast are - clearer skin, reduce bloating/water retention, appetite for healthier foods and mental clarity. I've been feeling sluggish mentally for the last few months since I started my new job (4 months ago) , meeting new people, going out, eating late dinners, pizza nights, and of course, beer - all lead to some weight gain and I haven't been taking care of myself lately. I am what you call a 'social eater' I socialize around food or sometimes grab a cookie from the coffee room and before I even know it, I've had half a box of cookies down my tummy. I go home feeling stupid and eat some more to in my opinion, punish myself. Hmm I'm not very proud of what I've been doing and going through lately.

To be honest, this is the first time I'm sharing my fasting experience. I am a 28 yr old female, have no kids, only a husband :) :P I work full time in a not so stressful environment. So that's a plus.

Current weight - 155 lbs
Target weight - 135 lbs

I am not too focused on the weight part but I definitely would like to clean up my insides.
Until tomorrow
