Hey, I am in the same boat. Is this ur first long fast? I had done one earlier, 1.5 yr ago to be exact. I did it for 33 days and lost around 30 lbs. But, right after the fast, I had a host of parties, gatherings & whatnot and fell off the health wagon and back to my old bad eating habits. And now, I am at my heaviest ever. I used to have incredible will power and cud force myself to fast, but don't know somehow somewhere I have lost it. Have not been able to do it again. I just hope tat I can do it this time.
Abt me: I am an 34 yr married women with 2 incredibly hyper kids 6 & 3. I usually used to be around 160 lbs, but as I said earlier, I am at my heaviest ever now at 210 lbs. :(
