Day one (once again!) of my complete Water fast

I had fallen a couple weeks ago from my water fast, as I was emotional distraught and became very weak from crying so much that I had eat some soup, as I was over at friend's house and she would have felt better if I had something. She was afraid I was going to pass out.
I am now taking this 40+ day fast(I started today on Ash Wednesday, but I will continue until after Easter if my body still doesn't show signs of true hunger.) Because I need to find myself with God again as well as I need to detox and refresh my body. I feel worn out, and sluggish, which I know it is because of bad eating and probably consuming cold medicine at times, when I have been sick. I need to purge those unneeded minerals and chemicals from my body.
I havent had any food since about 6:00 p.m yesterday. I wasn't feel particular up to doing what I am doing now, reading deeply of my Bible and fasting so my body is really protesting right now. I have strong hunger pains, but I know from past fasts during the Lenten Season, the one thing that gives me the strength to keep my fast going is that I promised God I would do this to show to Him that I want a closer relationship with him then just filling my body with food, I wanted to always fill myself more of Him. Right now, I don't know how strong my faith is going to be.
I weighed myself this morning as I was grumpy about being up too early for it to be a Wednesday. I am 125 lbs.
I have drank about 40 ounces of water, due to the fact, of the hunger pains, and drinking the water seems to help me quench them for a ti me being. I feel very achy right now, but I am sure it is because I didn't sleep well. I will have to do something about finding a way to make my body tired enough to want to sleep. Maybe I will do some exercise or riding my bike since it is has gotten nicer out.
I have already done a Bible Study of John 1:1-18, (Word) Psalm 1, (Praise) Genesis 18: 23-33 (Prayer) for the day, but I decided not to post it here, since my views are not the view of everyone and I don't want to start any disagreements. I really don't need that now, since I am trying to get a foot hold of my faith once again. Anyone that wants to read what I wrote you can find it here.
If people like what I have written in my Christian Blog, and I hear that they would not mind, I will just end up writing about my fast, as well as post here what normally would post on my blog so it will be one piece and one journey.
I know I will succeed on this. I do have faith that I will complete my fast, as well as find the well worn path that I once walked with God during this time.
God bless and encouragment to all that are fasting at this time.
