10:00am - 192lbs, that puts me down 27-28lbs so far.
I almost can see my ribs! How exciting!
I have decided to make the switch today. Tonight around 10:30 I am going to start taking alternative fluids. I am excited and sad at the same time. There is something about a purely water fast that has been spiritually humbling yet exhilarating. I am feeling more at peace with my walk with God everyday. However, I am a little scared if I go on I (in my own mind) would turn this whole journey/experiment into an accomplishment. Its not really about what we do but about what God does through us. Its shameful to me to think about how much I have internally stifled and frustrated his will in the past. His will be done.
This fast is about thankfulness and dependence. I am thankful to be able to taste something tonight!!!!! Whooo Hooo!!! I am going to splurge on a broth......tonight... but try to do mostly juices my last 20 days. I went to the grocery store and got grape juice, apple juice, orange juice, orange pineapple, cranberry, blackberry blueberry.....you get the picture. Who would have ever thought some broth and a glass of juice could bring such joy....but let me tell you.....I'm hyped.
I love you beef broth. I hope this doesn't enhance my general temptation for food....but if it does... I guess... I'll deal with it then.
