I've lost 180lbs five years ago. I have an obsession with food for years. Five years ago, I finally resulted to a severe restriction in food by the ag of 20. I wouldnt call it healthy, but it did the trick. LOL I've mainted all except 20lb of my 180+ lb loss. Now I am trying to get my health back! Get my life back. I attacked the scale lbs but never fixed the root- my food obsession is still here! I need to free myself. I think a water fast along with meditation and prayer is the only thing I can do. I pray to have atleast a 14 day fast- once I reach that I will see if I can go 30!! Ive tried on several attempts and failed because of the power food has over my head. The reason I chose to water fast is also to read and learn as much as I can while I drink only water. Once I know more about this wonderful process I can then move on to more advance types of fasting. Im so exxcited and so committed this time around!!!

Lord give me strength, and friends PLEASE give me support!!

God bless you all!!

Congratulation Virtuous on you weight loss and maintenance. That you managed to keep 160 pounds off all this time is a testament to your strength. I am fasting also so I would like to be you buddy.

If you find water too tough going in terms of energy and effects on your daily life just know you can switch to fresh vegetables and fruits juices. The detox is softer and slower on juices and it is the least intrusive in terms of the various modalities.
What I am saying is be flexible and enjoy the journey.

I come from a family that equates food with love. It has been difficult for my mom now that I reject a lot of the food she used to make for me. Plus, now that I'm into fasting and I don't drink caffeine she can't just share coffee and baked goods with me. It makes it hard. But my mom is getting a bit more into healthier eating...she's about 10 years behind my journey, so for her healthy food means not going to McDonalds as much LOL. But at least she's trying. Plus she has lost 60 lbs and kept off 50 of those, so that's something.

Anyway, once you have a few fasts under your belt, you'll see the benefits and feel more confident to let people know what you're doing. At first, though, it's best to fast in private and just avoid gatherings. I try to time fasts so I am not fasting for events where people expect you to eat. Especially when I want to partake.

LOL I always say when I "came out" as a vegetarian, I think my mom would have rather preferred I change my sexual preference rather than my food preferences.

Glad to hear from you, Virtuous. I read your post in my email but wasn't able to get online. You should be proud of yourself for your accomplishment. I'm impressed that you can eat a watermelon and jump back into fasting. Great job!

It is really hard to continue on when people, especially those closest to you, are doubting and tempting you. As you become more experienced with fasting, you will have more confidence to not let that get you down.
