Thank you all for your e-mails, help and support. This is my Day 1 -- the second time. I started fast 6 days ago but I gave up on the 3rd day. The craving for food (peaches, tomatoes and bread crust) was just unbearable. It was not just my brain playing mind games with me, but all emotions I've ever had were 'hungry' at the same time and my stomach was in a pain.
So, today I'm starting again. What will this time, that I believe, make a difference? I left my car at a repair shop. It has a few scratches and I decided it is time to have them fixed. Since, I live in suburbia, that means I am more or less immobilized until the next week.
I hope I will not be so desperate to call a cab, or friend to drop me to a grocery store and that I will have some self-respect not to call pizza or Chinese delivery. I have some veggie juices in a freezer but they are not tempting at all. This is just in case if anything goes wrong.
I'm very much encouraged by all your postings. The entire Water Fasting concept makes very much sense to me but if it is not for you and your attempts and successes (Vidda congrats!) I would probably feel like lunatic.
