Starting weight was 249.0. This morning's weight was 244.6, so I am down almost 4 1/2 pounds from yesterday.
I went to bed really early last night, at around 9:30, shortly after the kids went to bed. Fasting requires a lot of rest when needed so I made sure I got it! I woke up at 8 AM today and still felt quite tired. But it is Sunday, and church day, so I reluctantly got up.
I woke up with quite a headache, which is probably from my body detoxing. I took two Tylenol for the headache, and also my vitamins, a multivitamin and a B12. I checked my tongue out for toxins. It had a very light white coating on it. I didn't expect it to be too bad since I normally eat a low sugar diet and have done fasting and other cleanses before.
Spiritually and emotionally I am doing a lot better. Today's devotion was from Romans 5 and 6, which I really enjoyed but I find I have trouble concentrating on reading. Our pastor's daughter went to the hospital this morning to have her baby so I was asked to fill in during our morning worship service. I gave the children's Sunday school lesson which came from 1 Kings 5-9 which tells the story of building Solomon's temple. Due to fasting I had some trouble concentrating while teaching my lesson, but the Lord helped me through it and it turned out quite well.
Physically I am still having hunger pangs and feel quite hungry. I hope by the third day, which is tomorrow, that the feelings of hunger will go away.
So far today I have drank 3 bottles of water. It is Sunday and my day of rest so I plan on getting a nap in shortly after finishing this post.
I also want to mention that I am already seeing answers to prayer, which I think is awsome, although somewhat surprising.
