Thanks Chris for your input. I absolutely have psychological food issues, which i am addressing in this fast. However, my fast is not strictly about weight loss, in fact, i view the weight loss as a bonus only. I am trying to get my head in a better place, spiritually, because I know the toxic life I have been living begins in the mind. I have been bankrupt, spiritually, and food has been a way to soothe that.
I am on day 14 now, and motivation is still quite strong. It really helps knowing people are out there who have experienced what I am going through and can offer sound advice instead of the alarmist attitude I frequently encounter when anyone speaks of fasting.
