Ok so as I mentioned in the description of the blog, i'm a female, age 30, 5 foot 7 and I weigh 170 pounds (77 kgs) I have decided to take control of my body and my life in the attempt to lose weight, gain self control, detoxify my body, gain energy, eliminate depression and just overall feel good about myself again. I have attempted this several times in the past and didnt last longer than 2 days, but I hope that this time by keeping a journal and hopefully receiving inspiring comments from readers, I can stick to it.
I have done this in the past. I wanted to do a 14 day fast and I made it 10 days. The results were amazing. After 4 days I had more energy than I had had in 4 years, I felt good about myself, the cravings were completely gone, so were the hunger pains. I was on a natural high. I lost 13 pounds in those 10 days as well. The only reason I stopped was because my mother threatened me, I made several mistakes when breaking the fast, like jumping into eating completely "normal" again. This caused everything I had done to reverse and I became more depressed than ever. This time mom isnt around and i'm grown up so I can take charge of my own life. I'm sure as you read this you can relate somehow.
another thing that I think keeps people from lasting on this or even trying is the immense fear of failure, why try when im just going to fail, right? I'm not thinking like that anymore. The human mind is one of the most powerful instruments on the planet and when it's set right it can do pretty much anything. So, i'm going to take it day by day and who knows, maybe ill be sucessful this time.
So I'm starting at 170 lbs (77 kilos) and we will see tomorrow what happens. Wish me luck everyone.
