What are you doing awake? I thought I was the only one :P Where are you located? So about the cooking for the family, I know how that is. I cook for my husband, but you know, while everything smells good enough to eat, I don't want to eat. I have my weak moments of course where I consider it, or where I think WAY too much about food, but in the end I tell myself "Eat if you want. If it makes you feel good. Eat." But I realize that it doesn't, so I don't. I imagine how I'll feel afterwards, and the misery I'll experience just isn't worth it! To fast is a committment, but ultimately, one that feels good. Because to be honest, we all could eat whatever we want. We CHOOSE not to for our better health and bodies, and doesn't that feel great?
