I will like to say that I made a decision after trying so many different methods of dieting, from pills to programs. I was disgusted of how I let myself go as I stood and looked in the mirror at myself, I didn't recognize who I was, honestly. I took it upon myself without asking anyone because I had no outlet at the time. I lost 100 lbs. I never fainted, I never went into the hospital. It cured me of my depression as well because my self-esteem had rose extremely as I lost significant weight. I feel great and fasting is one of the best things that has ever happened to me.

Encouragement begins when you look within and take steps to greet it with open arms.

That's awesome ephiphany. I've also lost a huge amount of weight, nearly 50 kgs now, through fasting and eating raw foods over the last six months or so. It was certainly the best way for me to lose the weight and still is my best option to get rid of the rest.

Thanks Andrew, and congrats to you for your weight loss. Like you I'm still on the weight loss path to lose 35 lbs. more. What can you tell me about the raw food diet from your perspective/experience? Thanks ahead of time.

Goodnight

You are both to be admired indeed. You are living testament of the truths of fasting.

The biggest danger is not persisting. Many people are looking for a \"quick fix\" without accepting responsibility for maintaining.

A car does need repairs from time to time, but more so if it is not maintained.

Your body may be called the vehicle of your soul. It also needs repairs of it has been damaged, but even more so it needs regular \"servicing\" and maintenance. Just topping up the oil all the time will result in a total mess in the sump of your car's engine.

Fasting is an essential component of this \"service\". Just like replacing your car's oil entails draining it first, you need to remove old tissues from your body before being able to replace them with new, young, vibrant ones.

Please make peace from the start that fasting has to remain an integral part of your lifestyle forever. Don't let things get out of hand again before trying to deal with it. Set youself a target (eg. both maximum and minimum weight) and never allow yourself to get out of that window again.

Happy fasting. Happy living.
