01:31 am - Glad to find support! I just joined this community after hours of tossing and turning in bed. Fasting insomnia is awful...
HT ----- 5'6" CW --- 145 lbs
Although a huge reason for me to water fast is weight loss, I also want to discipline my mind and detox my body. I suffered from EDs since I was 13, and I've had enough of it. I am exhausted from the roller coaster I put my body through.
I'm the kind of person who loses sight of her goals after a short while, and so I hope this community will assist me in staying on track and reaching at least 135 lbs by my birthday. I'm on day 2 and just taking it one day at a time. My only complaint so far is the insomnia.
A tiny bio: About six months ago, I had a traumatic experience which caused me to pull away from everyone around me. I slowly became a shut-in, and in May I was diagnosed with agoraphobia. It has gotten so severe that I have not stepped foot outside of my house in over two months. Due to my depression and excessive eating, I went from 120 lbs to 150 lbs between May and June. The added weight has further influenced me to avoid going out in public. I have made a promise to myself that I will FINALLY leave my house on the 24th of this month (my birthday) so that I can celebrate with my family. Until then, I am fasting for the weight loss and health benefits. Current Mood: awake Current Music: "Wounded" - Third Eye Blind
