I will be starting a third attempt at a 40 day fast beginning March 9, the most I have did is 27 days. I need to fast for direction and for closeness with God. I really need advice and more importantly encouragement. Thank you!

Is it one day water fast and next day juice fast?
Juice fast is not really a fast, the body still has to process nutrients.

A little brain fog this afternoon... Water really is refreshing.
I worry about having to make dinner for the kids tonight.
I know I won't eat, but the smells are enough to kill...
At work, everyone seems to bring the smelliest stuff in for lunch,
Any experienced fasters out there have suggestions how to keep my ever-so-powerfull sense of smell under control?

It was a long day. Work, work, work...I feel good, I have a light euphoria that I walk around in like a blanket that protects me from the harsh reality. I think what I mean is, it's not a fuzzy head or foggy brain but my peripheral vision is broader and softer around the edges.
It has a glow. I'm not easily frustrated or upset. I have a better temperament. I smile more. I'm not as apt to apologize, and I have a clearer objective at the onset.
I remember this feeling from the past. It's worth the price of admission.
How are you doing Sandy7? I think about you. I was thinking, you know I got to keep going. It keeps getting better. These are the tough days. Keep going. It's early, we'll get the pace, the water start flowing like wine soon enough.

Hey Sandi7, how you doin', I had a long relaxing Sunday and feel pretty good today, day 6... How about you? I had a few stomach pangs yesterday, but I worked them out with a little stretching and yoga. I didn't feel much like heavy exercising, I took it easy, but this morning I got a "5 step" before work. I scrubbed all over with a loofa(?) in the hot shower and my skin felt very invigorated. Hope you're doing well, you're in my prayers...

Hello! Just chiming in here even though it's not my thread, will be following the thread as well as fasting :) I had a rather large and meaty breakfast before writing my original post and deciding to start today instead of some mystical future date, so tomorrow will be the first official fasted day. Thanks for the invite!!

Welcome! Free at last, its always hard to start, I'm with you there. That's why I pick a date. Its just easier for me to stick to. Water fast for me until I have to say " uncle" then I'll do juice for a bit to get through the rough patch. It's good to have friends in a time like this. The more the merrier.

As a total aside.... My teeth (have a few fillings) have been hurting lately. Would love if a decent length fast could help that!! I've also noticed some hard spots under the skin, they seem almost like tiny cysts or fatty deposits or something-- over my kneecap, another different one between the heads of my deltoids, and something else right on my elbow. I noticed on my other short fasts that my skin was great and almost unnoticeable skin tags all disappeared so I'm all for more improvements.

Another goal for the fast, sorry I'm rambling here but this is very important to me, I'd like to increase my awareness and the effectiveness and clarity of my meditation. I meditate with intention, a variety of intentions but intent all the same and stuffed full of food is very dulling to my inner guidance as well as my sensitivity for receiving information. It would be very meaningful to clean up things in that regard.

You give me incentive CM - keep up the good work!! I wish I knew something about yoga sounds very healing. As for me I'm barely hanging on - the spirit is willing but the flesh is weak!!! Thanks for the prayers, much needed.
