January Water Fast – Day #12 {My Last Day Fasting}

January Water Fast - Day #12Admittedly, I’m going to miss fasting and our decision to end it I’ve turned over and over in my mind – I can’t say it’s the right time to end it, but I can’t say it’s the wrong time either. This is definitely a bittersweet goodbye to the calmness of a food-free life.

I’ve officially been in ketosis for 10 of the 12 days I’ve been fasting, with most of my values over 3 – today was my 2nd highest day. 4.7 is pretty awesome.

Tomorrow we will eat. And assuredly the food will taste more flavorful and be appreciated far more than pre-fast. I can’t wait. (see Day #11 for the details on how we’ll be breaking our fast)

I received an email from a reader who admits to initially thinking I was “off my rocker” for water fasting, but after some thought, realized that this may, too, be the answer she has been searching for. She’s embarked on a bone broth fast and I’m excited to keep in touch with her during her fast.

I wish I had magical powers to take the yucky fasting feelings away, but the hard truth is that the worse you feel, the more you needed to fast.

Tomorrow, after my final weigh-in I’ll be doing a full recap as to how effective I feel my fast was and how much total weight Ray & I both lost. … and if we’d consider doing another water fast again in the future.

  1. I’ve been following your daily blogs, and did a 3 day water fast/cleanse myself… Over the 3 day period I was able to lose 10 lbs… The only reason I stopped at 3 days was due to family being in town. I am taking a 2 day break and will attempt to do the fast for a longer period of time…
