Water Fasting Success Stories?

Hi, I'm new here and I wanted to try water fasting for 14 days.

I just wanted to know, for those of you who have completed a water fast successfully: how much weight did you lose? Did you lose inches as well - as in, did your clothes become loose?

I was also thinking about walking for an hour a day for exercise because I'm assuming I'll be too weak to do any other types of exercise. But if you have any suggestions on what exercises to do, please share lol

Thanks :)

Day 2 of 10 day water fast NEW
by: Seek

Hi Folks,

I'm fasting for both physical and spiritual reasons. I do need to loose some weight but I'm also planning to spend some additional time in my bible and praying. I've only once gotten past the 1st 3 hrs of the fast so day 3 is all new territory for me. I'm kinda concerned about my bowels. Seems I'm always ready to poop. I dare not fart because it feels like I might poop in my pants. Plus today at work was kinda hard after a while. I had difficulty concentrating.
I'm glad I found this place. It's such an encouragement to read so many joyful success stories. Cheers y'all.

Fat girl needs a water fasting buddy! Summer is almost here! NEW
by: Katie

I'm Katie! First things first-
I weigh 235lbs.
I'm 5'3"
:(
I've never been thin, but this is so unhealthy! I'm a nursing student and currently learning about the heart. And every time my teacher says clogged artery, heart attack, blood clots.....and how weight is a HUGE contender in these issues it really makes me think how I'm living a terrible life. I'm 19 years old and a single mom. I need to lose this weight seriously! I have my whole life ahead of me and I want to keep up with my daughter. And an extra would to be able to wear a bikini for the first time and feel happy with myself :/
I think it would be easier if I had a buddy. Someone who will push me, and go through it with me!
I want to lose around 70-90lbs email me :) katelyntaul@gmail.com

fasting buddy NEW
by: Anonymous

I'm looking to start a 40 day challenge. I have water fasted since April, increasing the days each month as I felt comfortable. Last month I did a 6 day fast and followed with a 34 day 500 calorie diet. I am done with the challenge on February 27th and will start again around March 3rd. Anyone want to join the challenge with me? My email debpeters1986@yahoo.com. Lost 20 pounds so far. Only 60 more to my goal.

Day 2 NEW
by: Svitlana

Today is the end of day 2, so far so good :)
This is not my first time fasting. I'm planning on water fasting for 30-40 days.
I am 5'2, and currently at 175 pounds, my normal/healthy weight is 115-130.
My goal for the weight loss throughout the water fast is 35-40 pounds. Hopefully it will all work out :)

broke my fast NEW
by: stuart

Hi I am 66 yrs old, and today I broke my fast on day 6, even though I wasn't hungry.
I have been fasting for health reasons (hypertension, and acid reflux) the reason I stopped is my BP came down to 110/70 without my medication, ok so this is a normal healthy BP, but not for me I have been high for so long, that this is making me dizzy lightheaded and unable to do anything.
During my fast I was doing some cycling and found no problems with weakness, although perhaps I wasn't as fast as usual. I lost 8lbs, and agree with experts who say you will lose about a pound a day.
I plan to start another fast in a month's time, as this has been so good for me.

Fasting for a Better Me NEW
by: Akalia

Hi! I am 18 yrs old, 214.0 pounds, and 5'9. My goal weight is 170 because to join the navy you must be 175 for my height. Anyways, I have already lost 33 pounds through diet and exercise. It is the summer before my freshman year of college and I just really want to be healthier and feel even better about myself. My family has a history of high blood pressure and diabetes and I have never been told I was at risk and would like for it to stay that way. I started a 10 day water fast today. Hopefully, it will get me under 200 pounds so that I will be on a great start with my new diet plan. I would really love anyone's input or help. My email is nevaehangel@gmail.com. My cell number is 6015077974. Thanks. I really need the support.

Mixed Phase Fasting ? NEW
by: Anonymous

Greetings, I aim to detox my system and rid myself of as much excess weight as possible. I'm 29, 5'5' and 165lbs- I should weigh around 130lbs. I am determined get rid of this load and am ready to fast until my end objectives are reached. This being said, I want to know of any benefits and disadvantages to "phase fasting" (I just coined a new term). By phase fasting, I mean breaking the process of massive weight reduction into parts, i.e. 1 week-month of fruit/veg smoothies, next week-month raw juices, followed by a week-41 days of only water. I figure that this will allow the body to adjust to the process and as well as mentally prepare one's self to abstain from food all together during the final phase. This makes total sense to me, but I havent heard this style discussed. THANKS FOR SHARING YOUR OPINIONS and FACTS!

Beginning 10 Day Fast NEW
by: Moonbeam

I am happy for this safe place with members who know that fasting is not starving and is healthy! I am 30 5'4" and weigh 268 lbs. I have lost 86 lbs fasting on-and-off for the past year so I know that weight loss through water fasting can be achieved. On my first fast last year I lost 22 lbs in 9 days. I have been hooked since then. It takes a lot of will power but we all can do it! I plan for this 10 day water fast to become a longer fast. I believe it is easier mentally to break the fast down into smaller parts. I would like to fast until I reach my goal weight of 140 lbs. Please share your experiences!

Starting a 14 day fast today! NEW
by: Kristen

I gained a lot of weight while I was in a horrible relationship... Lost 20 lbs of the 50 so far just with moderate exercise and some small diet changes. That puts me at 200 lbs and I am looking to hopefully get another 20 gone in these two weeks. My long term goal is to weigh between 140-150 again. I went for a six mile walk this morning while I still have the energy. If anyone wants to join me email me at holliwoodgrl@gmail.com
Happy Fasting Everyone!

AN AMAZING EXPERIENCE
by: RAE

hello. my first fast was in 1983. it was such a wonderful experience. i fasted 4 days, lost 12 pounds and felt absolutely wonderful. my skin became clearer, i had more energy, my mind was also clearer. thru the years, i have continued this ''fasting'', sometimes for a day, sometimes for 5 days at a time. the most days ive ever fasted was 9 days. i went from a size 22, to a size 14!! yes, you read it right. it is truly an amazing experience. it does wonders for ones self esteem. i am now down to a size 12-14. it looks great on me because i am 5ft.9. the compliments never stop, and my new hobby is shopping. some people do not agree with fasting,(especially for weight loss)but i say, what ever works and this has worked for me. i wish you luck and dont let others poison your mind. try it and you decide. if you have health issues [depending on what they are, you may not be a candidate for fasting.- RAE
