Day 3 is a tall mountain I must conquer.

My computer froze for a few seconds when I was posting Day 2's blog entry so there are many entries for day 2 but they are all the same, sorry for that.
Day three I woke up and drank my usual cocktail of hydrating drinks and then was off to class. No headaches as today thankfully because I don't know if I would have had enough strength to be as hungry as I am today along with a headach elike yesterday's. Anyways, Around 2 p.m. full on hunger pains hit me hard. I wanted to wolf down anything that came within a three foot distance, but thankfully I didn't. I resisted some nachos that were offered to me by my friend while we were at a basketball game. I was soooo tempted but I it was truly not worth the guilt that I know I would have felt immediately after the nachos touched my lips, and therefore I held out my urge and responded politely with a "no, thank you". I haven't told any of my friends that I am going on another fast since last time it wa snot received warmly and they think it is some form of crash dieting. Whereas I see it as a healing of my body and a much needed break for my digestive system. But if they don't want to see fasting's benefits then I can't make them see it.
Right now it is 7 pm and I am starving. I am watching t.v. and I keep having to flip the channel as soon as the commercials come on because otherwise I would have to see the advertisments for all of the glorious food that I keep craving. Day three is so hard in comaprison to the other two days. I want this day to go by faster too. I am not enjoying today at all.
So I didn't tell my friends about my fast this time to avoid annoying comments and confrontations. Surpirsingly though it really isn't that hard to hide my fast. Right now is finals time and many tests that are going on for every college student at my school, so most people are consumed with their GPA's, test scores, and other things pertaining to their education. So instead of going to dinner wiht my friends a few times a week like I usually do I use the "I'm studying" excuse and it has been pulled everyday so seemlessly.
Right now I feel that I could stand to lose around ten to fifteen pounds, which is another smaller benefit of fasting that I hope to achieve from these 21 days. I'm not quite positive what my weight is at the moment because my scale had to be trashed a few months back, but going off of my own estimations I think I weigh 125-128 pounds. I would like to be arounf 115 pounds by the time the fast is over with. Also I am 5'2 so that weight may not seem like a lot but on my small frame it isn't huge but it is not what I am used to looking like. As soon I purchase a new scale, probably on Sunday I will inform you all of my official weight I can say how much I lose each day on my fast along with my other health benefits.
Hopefully day 4 will be a bit more endurable. I really don't want to have to live through another day 3.
