  • Water fast: Days 1&2   by  #88701     15 y     2,917       3 Messages Shown       Blog: Journey of my water fast
    Hey yall,

    I am at the end of my second day of my water fast. I started a blog on another site (not health related) and I was getting really negative and rude feedback, so I moving my blog here to curezone!

    I am 48 hours into my fast, and I am doing well! I am going to include my posts from day 1 and 2 as one, so I can post my day 3 tomorrow afternoon.

    DAY 1
    Hey....

    I am starting a forty day water fast. I have prepared for the past two weeks by decreasing my intake of food, and mentally preparing myself for this fast.

    The reasoning behind my desire to fast are simple and complex at the same time. I have an 18 month old son, and I gained 70lbs during my pregnancy. Wow! And, I have failed to lose this weight. I am hoping to lose some weight (not nearly 70lbs, I know) and gain controll of my appetite. I want to change my eating habits, my emotional eating, and start new.

    This is day one, 15 hours into my water fast. As I said, I have been gradually decreasing my caloric intake the past two weeks down to between 600-1000 calories. So, I am not feeling hungry. I am glad that I chose to prepare myself as I have....even if it was by accident. I had dental work done, and decided to change my eating habits while I wasn't able to eat much. This decision evolved into my decision to do a water fast.

    I am not sure of my begining weight, I know it is around 230. I will update tomorrow with my actual weight so that I can keep track of my weight loss.

    I plan on blogging daily, even if no one reads this I know it will be benificial to my psyche to express my emotions and chart my progress.

    If anyone else is doing a fast, has done a fast or is interested in my fast, feel free to comment!

    DAY 2

    For anyone keeping track (me!) this is day two....technically I am 39 hours into my water fast.

    I feel fine, normal, and pretty much okay. The only thing I have to report is I had very vivid dreams last night, of food! In the first part of my dream, shrimp cocktail was involved. The second part of my dream, I was cooking scrambled eggs and bacon. Weird. I really don't remember even dreaming about food before. I know my brain is thinking about food, because I am not supposed to be thinking about food. The irony, right?

    Besides my dreams, I am feeling little to no temptation through most of the day. I don't watch much tv, but the food commercials are constant! I never really noticed before, but they are there. At least one or two per commercial break on network tv. Maybe food commercials should be banned, just like cigarrete commercials were. If obesity is such an epidemic in America, maybe we should stop tempting people. I will step off my soap-box now :) Anyway, I find myself thinking...oh, that looks good. Even cartoon characters eating popcorn got my brain going. I am actually surprised that my brain has nothing better to do!

    So far, cooking for and feeding my son hasn't been a problem, either. I am no more tempted than I am by the commercials. Actually, at this point, I wouldn't even call it temptation. Maybe a fixation. Because I don't feel the urge to eat when I see food, or cook food, but I am drawn in to the details, sounds and smells.

    For anyone worrying, I know that I have this planned as a 40 day water fast, but if I feel like my body is not doing well, I will stop at any point. My health is more important than anything else.

    Thanks for reading!

      keep up the good work!! i am a 23 year old female, about to embark on my second water fast here in a couple weeks. i did a 20-day water fast in the summer of 2006 while i was on active-duty in the army at ft. benning, ga. i know how hard it is and can be. i definitely understand what you're saying about the preoccupation with food.. i used to fantasize about baked potatoes haha. you should find that after day 5 things get MUCH easier. i used to go for short walks to get the blood flowing and i would always feel a little better.. but as time goes by, it gets exponentially easier. stay tough! ps- do not go to a movie theater!! the popcorn smell ALMOST got to me- it was my worst temptation the whole time. ;)

      Hey there fellow faster. Check out my blog on my water fast when you get a chance. I find that we are very similar in that we both have toddlers and weigh about the same, 230lbs. I am on day 2 of my fast but I have not determined whether I will go past 10 days of water fasting. I originally thought that I would do 10 of water and 10 of juice then 10 of water again but if day 2 is the hardest then this should be a breeze. My suggestion to you in terms of food prep for the baby is, see if you can get jar food during this time, if he/she will eat it. If not prepare food days in advance. Also, keep a bottle of water with you at all times. Some say to add a little salt for the PH balance and sea salt is the best. Stay motivated by reading other blogs and youtube videos on water fasters. One thing that has kept me motivated throughout today is a tip I read online which is to dedicate each fasting day to someone or something. Yesterday I dedicated Day 1 to my loving husband. Today I dedicated to a baby I miscarried 2 years ago and my brothers still born from 13 years ago, still a very sad and traumatic memory. I thought it was a strong enough cause to keep me focused. Tomorrow I might dedicate to our boys at war. Anyway e-mail me or hit me back on my blog.

      Happy fasting,
      KatsKlau
