How many ways can I say Hungry? Day 9

I am STARVING!  I know, I know I sound like a broken record.  I truly am the hungriest that I have ever been in my entire life.  My stomach is continually growling, my head hurts from hunger and my brain is all obsessed guessed it, hunger and food.  I'm wanting to be positive and uplifting and tell you all how wonderful of an experience this is, but so far it has not been all I had heard it would be.  I do feel a little better physically but overall I'm weak, tired and not seeing too many benefits.  I haven't lost any weight the last 4 days which isn't helping me any. It's always so much easier to do the hard things when you can see positive results.

I'm going to have to try to focus on the facts in order to keep going with this.  The facts are that I am giving my digestive system a much needed rest while I am simultaneously flooding my body with nutrients.  I'm also getting to know the grocery store produce team much better.  They actually smile and wave when they see me now.  I have proven to myself that I can do more than I thought I could.  The longest fast up to this one was 7 days so I've already beaten my record.  My children are eating more produce since there is so much in the house now.

Well, I'm off to pray that tomorrow is a much better day and that I can sleep away quite a few hours of this fast.  Take care until later.

  1. Hope this phase passes soon Kay!!!

    I skipped "rice" for dinner tonight; just had various vegetables and a fried egg. I did have an amazing evening class and had more energy than usual... so I'll continue and see if losing carbs will help me shave off a few pounds!!
