A New Beginning - Going on a 60 water fast

by Moonbeam
(Puyallup, WA)

I am a 29 year old female 5'4" and 290 lbs. My highest weight was 354 lbs in Dec. 2010.

I lost 18 lbs in 6 months through diet and exercise. The exercise was killing my knees so I had to stop.

I researched fasting for several months and decided to give it a go in July 2011.

Well after going on a 12 day fast I lost 22 lbs! Very exciting!! I was elated! Well as you may know if you deviate off of a fast it is very hard to begin again.

I fasted 2 other times during the summer, Aug. for 6 days and lost 12 lbs and Sept. for 7 days and lost 11 lbs.

While fasting for 23 accumulative days I lost 45 lbs. In the last 10 months I have lost a total of 64 lbs and kept it off.

I have been struggling to get back into fasting full swing ever since. I am making progress.

I have been fasting or just taking bites of food for the past 2 weeks with some success but as you know taking bites is eating and eating is not fasting!

I am ready to take the leap to full success. Ready or not tomorrow is water fasting day 1. Oh, I'm ready alright! If not now when?

I encourage others to join me. I find it easier to avoid food altogether than to try tempt myself with "tastes" since that's all it takes to say "I'll start my fast tomorrow after I eat this last meal."

I know this will be the beginning of the new me, a healthier more health conscious me! Good luck to me and all others ready to embark on this journey!

Fasting Update NEW
by: Moonbeam

Thank you for your interest. I failed this mission. I had lost 100 lbs. I got down to 251 lbs and then last month GAINED 22 lbs in 25 days! I can't eat anything processed. No fun for me but it's something I have to accept. I am beginning a new fast tomorrow on Friday the 13th. I would like to fast until the end of August. My ultimate goal is to lose another 130 lbs. My goal for the summer is 60-70 lbs. The toughest part for me is the first day. After you succeed you don't want to ruin your progress. It's too easy to just eat something and say to yourself "I will just begin the fast tomorrow." I am determined to succeed. Water fasting works if you commit. You will lose weight and save money. That's a win/win. I will do a better job of providing updates. Good luck to all! Share your success or backslides. Losing weight and lifestyle changes are a process. We are not perfect but can learn to be better.

Very cool on your progress. How did/is your fast going? I usually have 2 or 3 'day ones' when I fast. I dont kick myself to much because there's always tomorrow!
