Re: Fasting for Gratitude

OK, I ate. Energy coming back. First, I ate rice noodles, and mind you--I wasn't mindlessly eating an entire big bowl, I was scooping half out and heating it too. Sometimes I wanted to eat right away, so I didn't heat it. So one benefit is that I am eating smaller portions. I used to binge right after fasting, but it didn't happen this time. Next, that Watermelon looked delicious, and I found that Watermelon replenishes my energy faster. I could feel energy seconds after taking a bite of watermelon. I ate about 3/5 of a cup of watermelon. Watermelon had never tasted so good in my life. But one thing though--I don't think rice noodles is nutritious for the body. I read that somewhere. No more rice noodles. I would rather eat a fruit.

Before I ate, I weighed 115.2 lbs, which is amazing because before the fast, I was 119.4 on an empty stomach.

Don't know what my eating plan will be for the future or the next few days. All I know is that I ate enough today, so no more food today. I would love to go on another three-day fast, but not sure whether I might feel the same weakness early on or worse. How about I will eat a little only when I am as weak as I was before I ate just now. I plan to eat 1/2 cup of watermelon each time I am that weak. We have half a watermelon left and it is huge. If watermelon is gone, I will eat tomatoes. We have like 60 lbs of tomatoes from grandma's garden. Not sure about a banana, because I have only appetite for half a banana. I will try one. One medium banana has 105 calories. Guess that would replenish my energy pretty quick. Anyway, I believe that my eating disorder and regret from eating is gone, and like I said, I don't overeat anymore.

Another amazing thing is that I could double cross my legs while meditating last night. I am usually too fat to do so.
