    My juice fast is over tomorrow, and i feel quite delighted with my-self, as i doubted my ability to see this thirty day juice fast to the end, but as i neared the half way point i knew i could do it, so with less than twenty four remaining, I'm replaying in my mind the fasting experience. i put my social life on hold, "haven't had beer in a month" stayed in my flat, walked a lot to make my-self tired so i would sleep at night. and slowly but surely time moved on, my general well-being has improved enormously i have lost twenty three pounds in weight, but only lost one pound in the last week? i feel much lighter on my feet, can walk faster and longer, my mental well-being is much improved, i feel more content, perhaps my nervous system has been re-set? I'am anticipating eating again with great fervor and am drooling at the prospect; I now have no doubt as to the merits of fasting, it causes a rejuvenation of body, mind and spirit. but fasting isn't easy as great resolve is needed. Will i do again? not for some time? And thank u Tom & your support team and my fellow fasting sufferers for your inspiration. a very happy christmas, p.s i will drop in from time to time.

    Hey! Way to go! I can’t wait till I reach my goal! It’s a great feeling of accomplishment to set a goal and succeed. Good for you!

    thanks for your comment Melissa, actually i have never planned anything in my whole life and fasting is no exception, I do most things in the spur of the moment, were i to plan something, all of my energy would be used up in that process, the planning it-self becoming the goal, but, ultimately, we get there in the end? Melissa i see you are starting your next fast in the midst of the festive season, and also the weather is freezing, do u think may-be its a bit untimely? well, perhaps i shouldn’t say that, as once one is committed to a course of action there’s no going back? so i wish u the best in your latest fasting adventure!

      Funny you should write that patrick. Yes I do feel it is untimely, right now I don’t know what is going on in this crazy head of mine… I feel not good enough, I have very low self esteem, especially when I’m not fasting and at the moment question is fast now or what until the 26th. I just don’t know what to do. I really wish I was happy with myself the way I am now but I’m not anymore, everytime I look in the mirror I see the same 220 pounder :(
