Hi Tod – I’m on day 8 of a liquids only fast (about 400 calories a day). The first few days are the worst – if you can get through this it will get better. I’m blogging at http://victoriatrabosh.com/blog One of the ways I stay inspired is to continually watch videos (not like continually – but whenever I’m “weak” (hunger, attitude, spiritually, emotionally)) and I’m renewed in my commitment. I also work full time but am taking care of myself because if I become ill I’m doing those who suffer no good. I’m thinking that after this fast ends of the 17th, I may move to the refugee diet. But whatever you do or I or others do, it matters. Don’t compare yourself to others or think you need to do more. You need to do whatever you can do. Thanks for your words – they inspire me!
