Ended the fast today.

I actually didn't feel that bad this morning, and the desire to eat wasn't as strong as yesterday. However, after going to church, I got to thinking about some things, and I realized that my motivation was mostly vanity. I also realized that since I started, I've been thinking about food more than God, and I don't like that. I know that if I turned to God instead of food, I wouldn't have a food addiction to begin with. So I'm not going to worry about losing weight right now, at least not to the point that I'm obsessed with it. I plan to get more involved with the church and realign my focus to where it should be.
I broke the fast with a salad, and other than eating a little too much, everything was fine. I don't regret anything, I'm happy that I went this far, and I think it did me a lot of good. I may do a longer fast at some point, but now is not the time. I'm just relieved that my every thought isn't about food anymore.
