I am half way now on my 10 day fast and it is going pretty good. I am not feeling any ill affects, and I toad my stationary bike for an hour tonight.
The first reason I am doing this is to increase my prayer power with God. The second reason is to grow in self-control. The third reason is to possibly experience some health benefits. The fourth reason is to be a model and an encouragement to others who might want to try this for the same reasons.
The fifth reason is to lose some weight, and so far I have lost 16 lbs.
