Doing 40 days of Water Fasting. Starting November 22, 2010
Reasons for Fasting:
I am fasting to reach a normal healthy weight. I think fasting can help me break some of my bad eating habits. I want to make this fasting a spiritual experience. I want to do some soul searching and finally reach my goals.
Past Fasting Experience:
I used to fast on a monthly basis, when I was at a healthy weight. But due to depression I gained a lot of weight. The longest I ever fast was 15 days water and 30 days juice. This time I want to go on a long water fast. The last time I fasted I was at 265 and came to 240. Now my current weight is 245, so from the previous fast I lost about 25 pounds and only gained 5 pounds.
I do not eat any fast food, only home cooked food. Staying away from processed food.

State of Mind:
I am in a really good state of mind. I am finally coming out of my depression. I am getting back to doing normal things. I feel that I can do this. I believe fasting can change my life.
I have no limitations. I believe my own mind and body is the barrier to my success. I have to take full control of my mind and stay focused.
How do you stay on the fast, when you get that urge to just put something in your mouth? How do you prevent mouth odor when fasting?
