Ninth day. Another day of starving. The days keep going by, but I'm not feeling so inspired now. I just wish I could weigh to give myself some hope. It's awful to have to wait a week. Yesterday I felt so weak and tired during class, I wasn't quite sure I could make it. Hopefully it will be better next week once I'm on juice.

My boyfriend and I are going to the zoo on Saturday and now his sister is going to be joining us. Apparently she mentioned going to dinner afterward, which would be great, except I'm due to be starving that day. I figure I can avoid food at the zoo, especially since I will have just come from a Saturday baking class and can say that I ate a lot of bread, but there's nothing I can do if we all go out to eat. So I had to tell my boyfriend that I didn't want to eat out with his sister. I still feel awful. And this is certainly not helping my motivation.

It's starting to not feel so worth it.

I just have to hold out until I can weigh. Good numbers will keep me going. I hope everyone is doing great and had a fun St. Patrick's Day. Stay strong and Thin!


  1. I believe you can totally make it through!! Just keep that low low number in mind that will be on the scale :)

    Day-2 of my fast is going well so far, I hope I have the motivation you do to get to a 9+ day fast soon.

    Let me know if you need anything!

  2. Great job hun, and I'm so sorry you had to make a hard sacrifice. I know how awful it feels to turn people down just to not eat. My old friend Angie asked me if we could go to lunch this week, just the two of us, and I had to say I was too busy because I'm on a fast too. :( I feel sad since I haven't been out to lunch with her since last April. So I def. understand the feeling!

    Stay strong, thin IS worth it in the end, I promise!!!


  3. I am so proud of you for fasting for so long! I do not have the resources/discipline to fast. My body just sends me into a huge binge. You are so inspiring to me! So please stay safe! and know that you are so cared for <3

  4. It will be worth it in the end! 10 days is very impressive. I'm not sure I have the discipline for that, but just one question, do you work out at all while you are on the water fast?
