Mines is when I step on that scale and its teetering into larger digits. Also how fat I feel and look to myself. My stomach is bigger and from the high salt intake my feet and hands are swelling. This is my breaking point and or cue to get back to fasting again before its 10 or 15 lbs to lose, and that is much more defeating and disheartening to me. I am back after a solid 5 lbs. gained to my fasting.

It was consuming the junk food, its the devil incarnate I tell you. I believe this is a life long change to choose healthy foods and drinks, there just cannot be any turning back once you lose the weight to go back to what put you in an unhealthy state to begin with.

Also, it wears and tears your body down steering away from a healthy lifestyle.

We all succumb from time to time to the crafty chemical engineering of the \"food industry\" where their additives are designed to sell their products.

But then again, a change is as good as a holiday and why deprive ourselves of experiences? When we look back at life after many years, the distinction betwen good and bad experiences fade.. they become potent or mild experiences instead.

I have found the best way of maintaining control is to fast absolutely regularly. I do so once a week at least (minimum 30-40 hours, usually around 48, sometimes up to 4 days).

This gives you the opportunity to a \"new beginning\" 52 times per year.

We all know how potent a fresh start can be.

I reserve the \"junk\" for the last day or last meal before the fast.. this actually \"primes\" the process of processing junk, which enhances its elimination during the fast. So.. another reason NOT to have a bad conscience about \"giving in\".. a bad conscience, after all, destroys enjoyment and without enjoyment, a craving is never really resolved.

For me, my breaking point is my belly fat. When I start to see that belly bump that requires me to suck in my gut in order for a flat belly, then I know it's time to fast. I just bought a set of full length mirrors because I realize that I haven't been paying attention to these changes in my body. It's like they sneaked up on me. I also have a number on the scale that I don't allow myself to go beyond. Unfortunately, I moved and my bathroom is too tiny to put a scale in there so I hadn't even been weighing myself. So I find myself needing to shed 10 lbs or more and I choose fasting because in my experience and for my body, that is the most effective way to burn off the fat and get my body back where it is supposed to be.
