7 days for your first fast is really impressive. When I first fast, I was really scared. It wasn't until later that I was able to go longer. When I did my 8 days, I stopped because I got really sick. The doctor said I had the flu, but people on here say that they think it was some intense detox. Whatever the case, I started eating.
I'm curious what made you stop your fasts.
Also, good job on keeping your weight down after the fast. I have a difficult time with that.
