Today at work we had a Halloween potluck. I didn't bring anything because I am doing my fast and just tried to stay out of the kitchen to avoid people asking why I wasn't eating. It's funny the reaction people have if you tell them you are fasting. It's like they think you are crazy or have a serious problem. So, I just know now not to tell anyone when I am fasting. I went into the kitchen with tons of potluck food and had to really talk myself into staying on the fast. I was having thoughts like.... "ahhh, I'll just restart tomorrow. it's Halloween I should have fun.... I should restart sometime when I am ready to do 10 or more days". But, I stayed strong and just got a cup of water. Whew! Escaped that one.
I know 5 days is nothing in the world of fasting but I feel like it will make a huge difference in my dieting motivation. I just need to see the scale drop a little so I can have a feeling of..... hey I can do this! Eating healthy and getting on the scale every day for the past couple months seeing the same numbers has taken the wind out of my sails. So, yeah this short fast is pretty much to get some weight loss results to give me a boost.
And Wedding Dress shopping is coming up in January... yikes.. soon. Want to feel good for that too! Well, day 3 of fasting tomorrow!
Keep up the good work out there fasters!
