I love resting when I fast so I thought this would be the most appropriate place for my blog...

happy to see all the support going on... Planning on doing a 20+ day fast.. would go to 30 40 but ill be on vacay in Florida so I dont really think its doable but ill be happy with 3 weeks ...


I weight 129 right now and am doing this fast for many purposes.. I look forward to everyones posts fasting or not fasting.. this place has held me strong and to my goals when I have fasted before.. I am excited to see new/old faces that now seems I have known for years!

Thank you fasting community

Day 1- hungry ... barely have drank any water just a sip or 2... helps me get into fasting when I dont drink the first few days.. I still have exams etc so I may do green tea and some spirulina power on the day I take my test just to get my brain functioning. That wont be till wednesday..

Day 2 here.. pretty hungry.. I have 2 4 page papers to write and a 2 hour test to take.. and a take home test and Im done! Finally a college graduate.. let me tell ya eating makes school wayyy easier for me!!

When I dont eat and take my tests I usually end up doing not so well.. because they are timed.. so I may take a short break 1 day to eat.. but then again I want the full 3 weeks of fasting! I may just plan to drink spriulina power... which has so many nutrients for the brain.. or green tea/coffee could work.

Symptoms today - BO smell :0 , hunger, a little thirst, skin looks very clear under my eyes even after a day.



day 3- BO smell is pretty much gone.... tongue is white but not that white... weight is 126.9 in the AM before drinking any water.. I sat in the sauna for about 30 minutes and sweat out a lot of toxins! Sauna made a lot of dead skin come off... I feel I need a massage or something but ill probably wait a little longer in the fast. Im not hungry at all and have no urge to eat.. this is a first to me.. usually I struggle but I literally dont care about food at all right now.. least of my thoughts..



4th day here... I have no desire to eat and am really enjoying myself.. was surprised when I weighed 124.4 today... I will be taking a test this after noon and my brain does not coordinate as well unless I have glucose which supports the brain... So ill be taking a teaspoon on spirulina which has 15 carbs and some caffeinated Tea... Back to only water tomorrow and I hope I don't have to go through the days 1-3 feeling again.. by the time I am at this point in the fast I know I am going to make it to 20+ days.... I am even thinking about extending this fast to 30 if I can while in Florida... I can tell everyone I am on the master cleanse and drink water with tea in it at times... but ill see how I feel after the 23rd (which I know im going to get too) that will make the fast 23 days - 1 day (today) of taking spirulina so 22 days... I feel great ... literally no desire to eat its so weird... I wish I felt like this on all my fasts...

Symptoms of water fast = white tongue, BO is pretty much gone, skin looks clear

Im going to go to the sauna tonight after my test and plan to drink about a gallon before and sit for 15-30 minutes and just sweat it out... I cant wait till school is over because I can just sit and watch funny movies.. do light walking and sit in the sauna... LIFE IS GOOD

day 4 still another post

Danielle thank you! I am much more pleasant when I don't eat too... I become clam minded and just almost in a meditative state all the time. When I did 801010 diet I felt floaty and meditated... and this past year I ate everything peak weight was 140's... I am so glad to be in the 120's again.

I feel when I am fasting my chakras open so much more... Its crazy its just like I am walking around so happy... Past fasts I have had so much temptation and wants and needs... for food that is.. but this one is really different.. I just took my test and did have a tad amount of calories but no solids... Normally I get the feeling to binge eat after I cheat even a little.. but nope not this time!!! The results are well worth the next 20 + days... I suppose I will get really skinny this time because I am already to 124ish... when I drink water I go back up to 126 but by the AM it evens out... The weirder part is I don't crave bad foods ! But talk to me after im home for christmas

Thank you Ockeghem I needed a laugh after today!

Day 5 - Today was uneventful.. I did drink a few cups of tea (non caffeinated) and one caffeinated cup.... It really helps me with school... I think I way about 124 with out fluid and 125 with fluids. I'll see in the morning.. If I go another 15+ days at least who knows where ill be..

Symptoms of fast day 5 - hunger is pretty much gone and desire to fast is stronger then any hunger thought (although I knew the tea did make my tummy growl)... Weird thing is I don't even care about eating right now.. I know I said that before but the feeling I am getting from fasting is so much stronger.. My mind is clear.. I feel spiritual (although emotional because of my doggy getting sick).. Tongue is white-ish... BO gone ...

On the note of my doggy hopefully she will be better by tomorrow. I have asked so many people to pray and I believe in the miraculous healing of God 100%.

I am fitting into old clothes and feeling a lot more comfortable in outfits then I did at 140's this year... My peak at the end of the day was high 140's so yikes! Right before I started the fast I was 129-130ish because I was eating healthy. Christmas time may be fasting time or eating time not sure but I will know when I am home with family... Like I said I can say im on the master cleanse and no one will really care.. to beat my old fast of 36 days I would have to go to December 5th... But I will be home from the 22 to the 7th darn it! I may be able to get away with doing a 10 day cleanse while in Florida which would be to the first.. But it is all dependent on how I FEEL at the time.. During my longest fast I was planning on 14 days... saw results spiritual mental and health wise and went to 21 days.. Saw more results in all areas and went to 30 days.. drank a tad bit like a tablespoon of watermelon juice and decided to go to 36 days on just water... When I got to day 36 I weighed 109 and knew I had to eat... I had no more fat left on my body to burn off... At that time I started the fast I weighed 136 and it was not for weight at all... it was all spiritual..

When I broke the last fast it was wonderful... I remember sipping watermelon juice after heating it on the stove... IDK why but I read somewhere you should heat it? LOL Not saying I will do that this time... Let me think when I break it this time I think I was POMEGRANATE juice! It is my obsession... but only the real kind (not store bought).. but I will be in florida and wont have my juicer so prolly wont have that... hmmmmmmmm Maybe just some good old green juice... IDK why im thinking of this on day 5 but I love the thought of perfect health after the fast and breaking it in a perfect healthy way! I will not binge after I break this fast... I did that one time and ohhhh noooo... Pizza yuck and everything else.. Ill be visiting my dad after my husbands family and we go to buffets... My goal this year is to be RAW vegan! Strong words but maybe 80% raw vegan and have cooked meals at night.... The past 2 years have been such an experiment and I have learned so much about myself. 1) I thrive on raw foods and my skin is perfectly clear, I am perfect weight (114), and look/ feel wonderful in exercise habits etc 2) when I eat processed foods I BINGE.... on raw you can do that but not on processed... so basically... I need and want to be raw... but I do love pizza and all the wonderful things about life! I think I will interpret more raw vegan ways to eat stuff like that though... Make my own version that is still so yummy!

anyways that is my 2014 goal... raw/vegan ... fast when ever I can .... study for MCATS or another test to get me into graduate school .. Be the best me I can be!

Hi Love.

Thinking of you. How is it going? I'm sure it's good ! You really inspire me.

I was wondering if you would touch on a bit of meditation, and what kind you do. Do you repeat mantras, listen to certain things, etc. I used to take yoga and meditate with a group, but I have fallen short. I try to repeat mantras and sometimes I count or just try to keep my mind in a loving place. Just wanted to hear about your experience. Also, have you encountered any "Vision Quests" from fasting? I'm always intrigued to know if the mind elevates to a new place, without all the sugar and food and carbs weighing it down. I have definitely seen/realized some cool things along the way

Thanks! X O

Day 8 - weight 121.4, made sure to drink over a gallon of water.. goal is over a gallon a day... I want to flush my intestines out! And renew my skin so I was thinking if I hydrate more then my skin will renew better...

Day 9- weight 120.2... weight went down a lot probably because I drank so much water... I know I usually can only get down to about 109 with out looking a little to faint... but when you get to a certain point the weight comes off slower... not sure when that will be but hope it doesn't come soon! OMG last night I almost ate a pomegranate... I was fighting with my self till 4 AM... could not sleep and just kept telling myself come on your on day 9 almost double digits... My mind was going crazy!

I'm at the point in my fast where I can not sleep well which I remember happening in all my fasts.. but ill be glad after this Thursday because no school means I can just sit and watch movies all day and NOT THINK! and be on 100% water... tongue is white... BO was kinda ehhhh again so I know im still detoxing all the meat I ate before this fast... I am so happy to be almost in the 119's again for weight.. Spiritual wise I feel so clear and happy most the time... but I do have bouts of emotions which last night I tried to cover with food but NOPE im strong!!!! ...

I also keep telling myself thou shall not judge! everytime a judging thought comes into my mind that all I think is dont judge just love... really cleansing my self mentally/spiritually and physically this time...

Danielle- It's going pretty good.. sorry for no posts have been doing school work a lot and didn't feel like blogging yesterday. I have done all kinds of meditation, silent, guided imagery, cds, youtube, in person etc. My best results have come from silent meditation with a group... when groups get together they can create a higher spiritual frequency.. its like this if you have one cord to a light bulb it may be very dim, but you hook up 10 and all the sudden its so bright! That is how meditation is if you are around other people who meditate all the time they can help you find peace through meditation.. I also love Kelly Howell guided meditation... Various youtube videos once in a while.. Guided imagery is great etc... but my fave is def silent.. During my fast I find my self doing yoga and meditating more. Your question regarding vision quests - im not sure what you mean?

Hi Loves.

Vision Quests are enlightenments. For instance, when you say don't judge, just love. To me, that's a vision quest. It is something you learn or stumble upon that wasn't in your conscious state before. That is very powerful, btw. No judgment is the way. Love everything, forgive everything, harbor no resentments or ugliness in your heart. I believe fasting can bring everyone to peace. Look what it did to Gandhi.

Also, Christian Bale, who grew up very angry and spoiled and entitled, went on a strict regimen for an acting role. He lost 63 lbs. and only had energy to make the movie. He said, during that time, he lost all anger and rage. He was so serene.

I have fits of rage and anger when I overeat. To quote another great man, Thich Nhat Hanh, he said some people aren't able to handle food. They have so much natural energy inside, the food adds to it and riles them up. I believe that is the case with me. My body has just learned to reject food. Now if my mind would catch up, and more importantly, my will!

Being on this site really helps. Just knowing everyone is out there, working on bettering themselves and trying to overcome challenges, is so great. I am thankful for you all.

Hope to report success again. I ate/grazed most of today. It was cold and rainy and I just can find an excuse for anything :) I did ride my bike A LOT. Not feeling too bad. Feeling pretty strong and since I stopped eating yesterday around 4, I feel like I can do it again.

For me, I need to establish routines and patterns and replace the old bad habits with better ones. I think I am ready to stop eating at night. It's a start!!!

xo

Danielle -

That day that I realized that was very impacting in my life... and now I am constantly reminding myself not to judge myself or others... I am really glad I went to the conference because I needed to see what was there so much...

I like what you said , " No judgment is the way. Love everything, forgive everything, harbor no resentments or ugliness in your heart. I believe fasting can bring everyone to peace."

I truly believe that too.. every time I fast I get closer to that place. I also agree with what you said about Thich Nhat Hahn. I feel I need little food if I eat everything - when i eat raw vegan I can eat unlimited and still feel light and floaty. You will fast again when its time... its just will power.. mind over matter and seeing the end picture.. what goal do you have to fast?

Day 10 - weight 119.2 ... symptoms white tongue and a burst of energy... went around and tried to exercise by walking in costco and wal-mart... there was something enjoyable about looking at all the stuff and getting exercise :) Hunger went away for the most part it came I think only once or twice over the past two days. Still cant sleep easy but getting 8 hours.. My skin looks translucent and beautiful. I have been drinking 1-2 gallons a day. For anyone trying to heal skin/digestion I highly recommend getting a ton of water as much as you can drink.

Today I had the urge to cook and back for my husband so I made him a special mexican pizza- and two types of muffins! I also got a few other baking mixtures and am preparing to cook more dishes! Weird when I don't fast i never cook... when I do all I want to do is cook and sometimes look at pictures of food.

Day 11 - weight stayed the same as yesterday 119.2 ... so now I am at the point where I will probably lose a pound every couple days or few days... I have a step counter on my hip that calculates calories and im burning roughly 1400-2000 + per day depending on my walking and sitting... (3500 is a pound of fat if ya didnt know) this includes resting burn... but im the faster who mostly sits lol... I did walk 2 miles today so about 5000 steps so far... normally I do over 10000 a day... and thats a slow day!

symptoms - white tongue... BO is kinda back maybe because I haven't drank my gallon today at all... all fasters know that water does get hard to drink sometimes.. I will drink it but haven't yet.. and it may be because I was wearing a sweater all day.. I also do not use deodorant. especially while fasting because I want no toxins going through my skin. energy is good... Tomorrow will be busy.. I will probably do 10,000 steps lol.. I have so much to do ... ahh!! bed bath and beyond, another store, and grocery shopping, paying 3 bills, post office... but guess what

IM DONE WITH SCHOOL!! graduated with about a 3.82 or so ill see after grades are posted....

anyways.. thanks for tuning into my fasting journal! also if anyone wants to look at my old blog posts I dont know if you can but I did post up until day 18 when there was the old blog.. maybe ill compile them onto here if I can find them

Elizabeth - thank you! It feels great to be done and great to be using this time wisely fasting... I have a feeling next year I will do a long 30-40 day fast again. Thing is not sure if I will have the reserves on my body to do it...

End of day 11- yesterday - did about 7,438 steps, 3.15 miles and burned 1677 calories. basically went against my own rule and didnt drink water that much maybe a half gallon and pee was dark yellow :0

Day 12-
weight 117 or 118... I forgot lol but I was suprised when I saw the number so I think it was like 117.8 or something..

symptoms = white tongue ... no BO again ... I do get boogers sometimes.. I feel I need an enema so I may do one

feelings = I have been detoxing anger for sure.... I am never one to yell or get mad but yesterday... I didn't see it has a bad thing just think all the crap is getting out of my system and my voice is one way to let it out! luckily my husband doesn't care because he knows im fasting :)
