Hey, think of the benefits in the future. Think of how far you've come. What're you on now, more than a month or something if I'm not mistaken. You are now, farther than I had originally even intended to go(21 days).

Practicality and prudence insists that I will have to break my fast earlier than I intended to for the reason that I'm not the same at work and it is a physically rigorous job. From what I've since learned, that I've made it 9 days and then some, at something resembling my typical pace is not bad. I guess I really shouldn't be working at a physically demanding job during a fast anyways. I am starting to wear down and slow down and almost fell down last night, while deckscrubbing the kitchen floor.

I'm personally looking forward to the non smoking aspect of my post fast. All the things I love to do that smkoing was holding me back. I'll be able to run 3 miles, play frisbee or go swimming with my friends, climb a rockwall, have a sparring match, run a vigorous shift at the bar, and make love to a woman, all without getting winded. The now sucks for the better future. No pain, no gain.

And hey, I'm pretty sure you wrote somewhere you wanted to do this for weight loss, so think of it this way. Stick with this as far as you possibly can (and by that I mean not necessarily as far as you wanted, but neither quit early nor go as far as is unsafe), you've built so much self discipline. You'll have your recovery phase where you will probably continue to lean down. Then you take all this discipine you've forced upon yourself and translate it into a reasonable diet/exercise program and you'll be where you want to be in a period of months.

Some military mind of the ancient world(greece or rome, I think) said of new generals: Self control is the most important elment in self esteem and self esteem is the most important element in confidence. Funny how that works here.
