day 13 - weight 116.6

symptoms - white tongue, good mood, no BO

Did an enema and I really needed one... I think I need another one and I may add coffee into it but it wont be for a few days.. This one was just water and really helps get some stuff out... I wouldnt want that sitting there for another week or two!

No temptations.. the hunger and mind games are gone.. no drive to eat at all :) which is great.. the first part of fasts are the hardest for me because it's all mental .. once i am past day 8 and day 12 for sure I know I wont break.. I have broken at day 9 so those days can be hard during some fasts.. but I feel like if you reach day 14 or 2 weeks.. the drive to heal and go longer is way stronger then eating... I am already at 116 and I dont want to get lower then 109 so ill have to see how this plays out... Still losing weight pretty fast.. Dont know if I fit into my old jeans yet though!

Happy fasting

Thanks Loves!

I love reading your posts. Love how you said "no more mind games". I think that's part of my life. I play mind games all day long with myself, and I think I'm afraid I'll be super lonely without my chocolate/binges. Guess I'll have to get used to a new way of being. I know it will be for the best!

day 15 - weight 116.2 - 116.0

symptoms - white tongue, good mood, no BO ... little less energy today. when I stand after sitting for a while I have to gram a wall, chair, or whatever is in my path... trying to up my water to a gallon or more per day again


spiritual notifications for today - we are our own creators! we create our lives! you want to be skinny - fast or eat healthy... you want to be fat - eat bread for a whole year (not speaking to anyone but myself here because I did that the past year) ... you want to become something - study or do it the non school route... we are our own creative directors in a way... we direct our lives, choose what we do, what we eat and so on... today I did something I haven't done in a while... i made a list with the title "positive changes I want to occur in me" and then another one that says "who I want to be, what I want to do with my life, and how I want to live each day" im straightening out my mind, my dreams... im dropping my self criticizing (trying so hard at least)... trying to direct my life that way I want it... for I am the creator and so are you! here is an example list in case someone wants to try... write what you want then write how you will get it

healthy skin- fast/ eat raw vegan
well kept nails - get pedicure
doctorate - go to school study

these are just a few examples but the lists are long and detailed... everything you want even as small as nice nails can go on the list (I usually let my nails go and never get treatments but it is something I would like to do) ...

happy fasting

day 15 - just want to add this for my future reference.. its posted in the december fast

going on day 16 here! I'm not quitting because after this fast I will probably get a few full/part time jobs and more college so I wont have another chance for a while unless its with a stimulant like tea... today I felt really good.. I think my anger has officially been detoxed out of my body because today when I got mad I just thought... this feeling doesn't feel good.. so change it!

weight is 116.0 - 116.2... I am fitting into old jeans!!! :) upped my drinking back to a gallon.. also thank you for the videos! I sent the link to my aunt and she watched a ton of them! Said some people do a re-feeding of 9 days... even if I go another 11 days till the 27th that aint nothing at this point.. or only to the 22 only 5 more days = 3 weeks! Would love to go for 27 or even more but I probably wont because of how much ill have to be doing.. re-feeding is going to be interesting too.. along with being around wine..

Well done! I'm finding the green tea, one or 2 a day help. Also on 2 particularly demanding days 4 oz of trader joes organic vegatable broth got me through it.
Low sodium less than 40 cals. My Dr's reccomeded it rather than break the whole fast.

Accept yourself as you are. Otherwise you will never see opportunity. You will not feel free to move toward it; you will feel you are not deserving.

Congrats Danielle! You are a success.

Marc, I'm glad you are being monitored by your doc...you are smart!

Hi Loves...just a reminder to you and Marc...after reading about fasting and the importance of monitoring...
Its important to know whether you are short on your minerals.
Any signs of irregular heartbeat or dizziness is a concern - especially low potassium is serious business.
Taking a blood pressure is a good idea but not enough for monitoring.

Take good care! :) and have a great day.

Marc - congrats on getting to day 16! However, including any nutrients in your diet gets out of the fasting mode... but I would be very interested to know if you skin is still healing the same with the broth etc... hang in another 6 days till day 22 and I promise more skin results! I am seeing major ones right now

Danielle - great job! Im proud of you

Elizabeth - I have done a lot of long fasts (36 days water only was my longest) . I'm not worried about the side effects because I have enough fat storage on my body to get energy from... about 7 more pounds at least.. :) but ty for concerns


Day 16 - weight 115. 8 .. weight is coming off slow but I fit in my skinny jeans!! YES... been waiting for that..

symptoms - white tongue, slight hunger today IDK why maybe because I did an enema... I do recommend them ... today I did coffee and I feel I dumped a lot of stuff that was just sitting ... trying to pack for a trip...

mood - happy just watching disney movies and staying in my happy place

im still debating on 22 days or 27 days... ahh.. since im basically at day 17 here it is only 10 more days which is nothing... which is what I really want to do... problem is I will be around people... and I look very thin right now... any thinner and people may wonder .. May just go to the 24th so 24 good days and break it with pom juice... but something in my mind really wants 27 days! maybe because I see my skin healing so much.. or maybe I can feel my digestive healing so much more .... each fast I do I heal more and more and more... its just amazing! getting amazing results this time around... I highly recommend water only, however if working or in school I do not recommend water only lol.... thats why I love this fast it may be my last water only for a good while... another reason I am interested to know the skin results while drinking tea etc becasue I will want to do another one IDK when but sometime while working etc and will have to drink tea or something on it

Happy fasting!

day 17 - weight - 114.8 ... woah that pound dropped out of no where! .... I almost gave in last night... my brain was back and fourth... welll... I should eat because... no im already at day 16.... fast more your skin is healing.... quit you are hungry just have a pomegranate .... fast you will regret it in the morning!

So in the end I won and I fasted... I remember one fast where I got to day 17 or 18 and quit ... and then regretted it... the skin healing for me really starts happening on these days so it is crucial that I at least get to day 21 - or week 3 ... the more I think about it the more I don't think I will get to day 27 unless I switch to green tea around day 23 ... what I may do through is go to day 21 22 or 23 and then move to a fruit fast for 4 days... which has the same healing properties just a slower process.. If I could lay on my butt the next 10 days I would go to 27+ but it is just not possible..

symptoms - white tongue... sniff out mucus sometimes... energy is good... mood anger yelling is up and down.. letting out more toxins I guess.. skin is looking smooth and wrinkles around eyes and farcical skin is noticeably smoother... skin is snow white no blemishes etc.. I remember when I first fasted I had about 20 on my chin from all the toxins... shows the more I fast the more I truly heal... I may have to get up to 140ish one year so I can go a full 40 days and have the reserves for it... but if I do that it will be highly planned out... but it would be a great accomplishment.. I know I could never go that long on my weight now.. I only have another 6 more pounds im comfortable losing.. im sure it is safe to lose more but I don't like to go lower then 109

all for now folks!

Day 18 - weight 114.2 ... did a 4 hour drive today.. no hunger but around my papa so it is hard to fast . he bought me a 35 pound watermelon! ahhh... ill prolly break it saturday after 3 weeks so I can prep for social events at home... By then I should be close to 109 which is my weight limit anyways.. I could always change my mind so dont mark my words on this!

symptoms - tongue is white but less white... did have a bowle movement last night which was weird? I think because I drank so much water... energy is great today could be the full moon

mood - happy

day 19 - weight 113. 8

symptoms - white tongue but less white then usual.. when I wake up it is hard to move around but after I am up and going it is easy.. its weird this is by far the most energy ive had during a fast... no caffeine no noting just water! then again I do sit most of the day but when I do get up or do activities im not tired

I usually get temped by fruit but since the whole fasting board is fasting with me for the next couple days I am sticking to my promises... I estimate I will be 112... 3 pounds away from my weight limit... Although this time I don't think I would have to limit at 109 because I still seem to have reserves everywhere.. I think the fact that last time I was all muscle and no fat before I fasted made a difference this time.

Mood - im happy overall.. glad to be around my papa.. I <3 my dad.. :) such a change of energy and I do cherish it so much .. I watched the Grinch cartoon last night that is only about 30 minutes.. I love that short cartoon! It's great.. I am really in spirit this year.. watching Christmas with the cranks... home alone 1 and 2.. etc..

Breaking the fast - I am not breaking it yet! I have come so far.. Still thinking if I should go with pomegranates or watermelon.. Wish I could bring that watermelon with me on the plane! I also have sweet oranges and bananas.. I tend to binge when I break but really want to do it proper 100%.. just juice the first day then fruits the 2nd and 3rd days.. then some vegetables and salad dressing ( is olive oil okay on the 4th day after a fast) what about key lime pie?

Hey Love,
Just re-read your entire blog. Such an inspiration. Thanks for sharing. I also love how you put your weight and your mood. It's neat to see how you couldn't decide how long to fast but you just kept going. Aren't you glad you didn't eat that pomegranate that one night you couldn't sleep? Look at what you accomplished.

I pledge to stick with you...as tempting as it is for me to end it today, I can wait. Thanks for giving me the motivation! What time does your fast end?

Lisa - thank you gratefully! THe reason I write these blogs is so when I fast again I can reread my old posts to see what I was going through on the previous fast. I really had no date in mind besides '22 days' which tomorrow will mark 21 - or the weight of 109 which I didn't want to go lower. I am really glad I didnt eat the pomegranate or watermelon... today the blessings have bestowed upon me spiritually... I have been happy... mentally clear... able to do art... just in an up mood... spiritually guided... content... no thoughts of food etc I am thankful for you and everyone else that is fasting... the main reason why I can keep going.. I dont know when my fast will end at this point.. I am going off of feelings intuition and not so much by time... through the fast time and space were a wall between me and the fast.. getting through the humps of 1 week 2 weeks and now 3 weeks are over.. but once I reach this point time and space seem to disappear and I just keep going not so much by numbers but by how much I am healing internally mentally etc... I could end tomorrow, could end the 24th? or somewhere inbetween... I could even go longer but probably wont lol ... if only I were alone but I wont be

day 20 - weight 112.8

mood - spiritual/happy/guided... words to describe clarity, grateful, content, unburdened, watching my thoughts but not identifying, smiling, tv, internet, artwork, dogs, animals, reading, bhagavad gita, God, love, joy, happiness, free, unburdened, skinny, not eating

symptoms - white tongue but less white sometimes the white seems to go but leave little residue, clear white skin, slight hunger when I dont drink, still have my gallon to drink and its 5 pm... funny I drink mostly at night lately IDK why... had a few bowel movements the past few days which was great.. it was running mucus (sorry for the graphics) but im glad its out.. it felt relieving and I feel so much better... I have a ton of energy.. spirit is finally coming through

days 21 - broke the fast

symptoms - weight before 112 I ate ... I broke the fast with the juice of a pomagranet and through out the day had about 4 more (just the juice) and the juice of 4 oranges... a bananna and a litle bit of mango... I feel so stuffed right now! But I just want to have a bowle movement.. which is why I ate the bananna because they are great for that.. Still drinking water.. When I frist broke the fast I got a slight headache which was weird.. didnt have a headache the whole time I fasted and I broke it and got a little one.. I finally feel tired at a decent time and hopefully can go to bed earlier tonight.. I have been staying up till 4 am every night.. when I fast I can not sleep.. Overall I feel great.. my skin did a great deal of healing as did my mind body and soul.

Mood-- really really happy!

I ate some soup last night with meat in it. I never eat red meat. did a real number. Have been trying to bike and walk it off, and can't wait for it to be out of me!

I realize, however seductive food seems to me, it is never worth it. I don't have much control, in terms of stopping once I start eating. When the food leaves my system, the cravings go away.

What I crave, more than anything, is emptiness. I'd rather be full on love and sunshine and FEELINGS, than icky stuff that I think is so important.

Thanks for listening, and as always, for support!

Loves,

I'm watching a meditation with Thich Naht Hanh. Oprah is interviewing him and he's talking about peace and love and compassion. I feel very relaxed and zen. Just thought of you and how you talk about power of meditation, and how it may help with fasting.

Thanks!

Indeed Danielle. My dear wife attended one of Thich Naht Hanh's retreats and was hugely impressed. Wish we could teach all people such values..

Feeling good. Lots of energy, I actually ran this morning, instead of walking. Amazing how good it feels when the guts starts emptying itself.

I feel like a different person. Slight craving for chocolate, but it's more mental than physical. just have to learn how to pass time differently.

I am so ready though. All I can think of is how long I've wanted this. To be sober and clear and consistent. No matter what happens, I truly feel ready for this fast.

Hope everyone is well. Happy Holidays !!!
