Ladies and Gentlemen, I am sorry that it has taken me so long to get started on my new 120 Day Broad Fast. Something came up after I wrote my "New Beginnings" post. I saw that I was going to need eating days soon and I did not want to just start and then go into eating days. I did have some days during this time that I could have counted towards my 120 days, but I wanted to get off to a good start. I view eating days as somewhat of a negative. I did not want to go there so soon after my start. It was better to let those broad fasting days go. During this time I did think about my new rules and made some changes to make my new plan even better. My Daniel Fast list got longer and my eating days got limited. I edited my "New Beginnings" post with the changes. I think I now have the perfect plan for me, but that does remain to be seen. I can always adjust my plan as I go if I think it can be improved. I am even allowing oatmeal on my Daniel Fast days if necessary. I hope to not use this too much, but I see wisdom in this choice. I know that just fruits and vegetables can leave me very hungry shortly after I eat. I think that by allowing oatmeal during these times it will help to keep me from giving in to as many eating days. Oatmeal fills me up and stays with me for longer periods. It may not be a cleansing food, but it is a healthy choice when looking at a 120 day goal. I want to stay away from eating days as much as possible because they can lead to danger and a complete falling off the wagon so to speak.
I have begun a water-only fast and I am currently on day two of the fast. Things are going well.
We should not live in the past. Let us dwell on that which is good. Our focus should be on today and on the future.
There is a time to forget; there is a time to remember.
Failure is not an option for me. It is just another step towards my success.
Usually there is no success without there first being a series of failures.
