Mini-fast Day 1 of 2

Woke up this morning at 7.40am and weighed myself immediately.
I am 10st 7.8lbs (147.8lbs) exactly. Seems I have managed to put on 0.8lbs since yesterday. Well, I did have an evening meal yesterday for the first time in two weeks. It consisted of four fish fingers in a pitta bread with ketchup and tartare sauce. I know, probably not one of the healthiest choices, but my pitta breads were going bad so had to find a way to finish them! Also had two alfonso mangoes - these are so sweet and delicious! So that was my fruit intake anyway. Stopped myself from touching those muffins in the cupboard by having the mangoes.
Anyway, I continued my morning by oil pulling with sesame seed oil. I think it is working but I might have to continue longer to see more visible results. My gums are definitely looking healthier so that's a good sign. My teeth do not bleed if I brush them immediately after oil pulling. However, they are still a little sensitive, so wondering if I should change my toothpaste...
I have started a mini-fast today and am wondering whether or not to go the whole two days (as have a party on Saturday) or drink mostly juices and then have one meal a day.
Juiced two massive grapefruits today with four naval oranges. Made about 2/3 of a litre. It is now 1.15pm in London, and so far I have not had a problem. As always, my mind is wandering to food.
Since starting a diet two weeks ago, I have noticed how much better I am looking, amazing what dropping a few pounds does to your appearance.
I am realising that my mouth is giving off a horrible taste, so that means that the juicing has started its work.
I will try to incorporate two litres of water, as I have been doing the last two weeks, as I think it will assist me better. It's 1.20pm and I have not drank any yet so better get started!
Anyone fasting at the moment? Feel free to send me a message and we can cheer each other on. Support is so important and it is great to have curezone for all this.
Must get on to drinking that water, so more tomorrow.
