Does anyone else have the same burning desire to lead a healthy and prosperous active life? Are you currently acting on making changes? How is it going for you? I'd really like to hear your story...

Today has been a horrible day for me, I will be completely honest. I went to the store this morning to check my blood pressure and that was normal (thank God, I want to get off of my BP meds). BUT, I ended up purchasing strawberry candies and prunes. I got the candies because the toxic taste in my mouth was killing me. I intended to have 1 or 2 a day, the bag of 15-20 is nearly done (I am ashamed of myself). The prunes I did eat and I had a BM today (small but substantial and solid). Since the fast began 11 days ago, I have had only 1 BM (makes sense, nothing in= nothing out).

THEN, I went to the gym to work out (spent 2 hours there and the workout was fantastic). I came home and my hunger was killing me (it is all mental at this point, my body is fine with not eating- its my mind that I'm battling). So, I went to the Chinese place where I used to get shrimp and broccoli and egg foo young but instead I purchased a small egg drop soup. SO, this is REALLY not going well. I am supposed to be on my fast and I have failed again.

In evaluating this not to be hard on myself particularly but to build a stronger foundation for the remainder of my fast (YES, I am sticking to it- I wont give up, I just have to get smarter with this) I see that the temptation is what I must fight. I need to sidetrack my mind and spiritually remove my body from the evil and obsessive thoughts to eat and make the right choice.

I lost 10lbs since I began this fast and I don't want to put any weight that I lose back. In fact, during this very fasting period I WILL get under 200lbs. My trainer at the gym today complimented me on how good I look (refreshed, thinner, more vibrant, etc), others have too, but I KNOW the trick of the enemy is to keep me 200lbs+ and sick. I have not been under 200lbs in over 10 years. So, during this very fast I vow to keep the FAITH and claim VICTORY! The obesity giant has got to die and boy is he giving me a run for my money (1 life to live- health rather). BUT, I am the victor and he will not win...
