Day 24 on Weight Loss Challenge

Today was a day of fasting for me. I don't normally preach fasting as a weight loss tool. I think you can fast and lose weight quickly. But, at what damage to your body? I recommend you find a good balanced eating habit and exercise program. Weight is directly related to what you eat and how much exercise you do everyday.

I remember the first cruise I went on to celebrate our 15th wedding anniversary. One of the people at our dinner table was telling us about his use of fasting to cleanse his body. He said he would go as much as thirty days with drinking fruit juices and eating vitamins. He looked healthy.
I think most of us eat too much and many of us have sedentary lifestyles. Our forefathers would be out in the garden for many hours a day, chopping wood and didn't have easy access to food. Today we sit around an office all day. We are talking on the phone all day, working on a computer or sitting in a conference room. We go out for lunch at a fast food restaurant. It is late when we get out of work, so we go out to a restaurant for dinner. We lack the exercise we need and we eat too much food.

I went for a walk today. But only walked for one mile. Some of the path was good. But it had snowed overnight. There is still ice on the path from the melting that had occurred for the last 4 days. So we have a thin layer of snow on top of ice. Very dangerous. After almost falling a couple of times, I decided it was in my best interest to cut my walk short. I may have to stick to walking on the road for a couple of days until it is safer to walk on the paths.

Breakfast today was an 8 ounce glass of milk and 8 ounce glass of orange juice. Lunch consisted of a 16 ounce bottle of Sunny Delight. It tasted like Tang mixed together and placed in a bottle. Dinner was a bowl of tomato soup.

So you see that fasting for me isn't really that bad. I have a friend who is Jewish and his definition of fasting is much more strict.

I am going to try to eliminate candy from my diet this week. Feel free to join me in this quest. Good luck today and have a great day!
