wow! i did not know i had it in me. actually, i did know but i had lost all confidence in myself that i could complete a worthwhile goal. i feel more authentically like myself than i have in the last 5 years. i'm getting in touch with something much deeper.
i got blood drawn today for the doc to examine. i intend to do another two weeks, as long as all looks well. i don't know why it wouldn't, i am in excellent general health.
i am still hungry frequently, but i attribute this to handling food all the time for my family. oh well, i seem to be dealing with it just fine. the white coating on my tongue is still there, i just brush my teeth to get a fresher feeling in my mouth. digestive tract is mostly quiet, oddly i have a tiny bit of gas now and then. how? i'm not putting ANYTHING in but water.
for the ladies- i lived through PMS week and cycle week with no ill effects during fasting. in fact, my PMS symptoms were nearly nonexistent. some irritibility was all, and they say you can get that on fasting anyway.
