Just wanted to share my experience with you, to keep my self inspired and hopefully inspire others.
i started a juice fast on the 9th of March, just freshly made fruit and veggies and water, at the time i was smoking 60 odd cigarettes a day, had no intention of stopping although it was bugging me and on the back of my mind. Along with that i had terribly bad eating vegetarian but unhealthy, and drinking more than 12 cups of coffee a day.
So started my fast on Sunday the 9th, got up Monday the 10th of March and couldn't even look at a cup of coffee was most impressed about that, and the fact that i didn't even crave one at all from that moment on is absolutely amazing to me.
Continued my fast and prayed on the Tuesday evening to the Lord to deliver me from Smoking to take the smoking away and all its nasty addiction. The following day on Wednesday the 12th still fasting drinking my juices and water, at 6.45pm in the evening, i smoked my last cigg, and got my full unopened packet of smokes and drowned them and kept saying good bye for good.
Until now i cant believe the fact that there has been no cravings for either coffee or ciggs, at all NONE NIL ZERO.60 ciggs a day, it was part of my life, it was something i would forget my keys in the house but never forget the ciggs, it still amazes me totally ......... This is my path for life.Thank you God.:)
Today is the 19th day of my fast, and the second day of water only.
Here is a list of the changes i have seen over this past 19 wonderful blessed days.
My skin looks wonderful, don't need nothing on it ,it just glows.
My lines on my face are disappearing.
I have color finally on my face.
I am feeling direction in life and feeling positive most of the time
I am drawn closer to the Lord( i can feel and hear him speaking to me clearly)
I can breath great.
I have taken up exercise again and walking daily(something that was on the back burner for a long time) and feeling like I'm already toning.
Feeling so much more energy, and feel very positive about my future.
Feeling more love for me and others
Feeling calmer than i have been in a long time.
Have lost approx 9 kilos and many many inches
Just feeling super great 95% of the time.
This is my life from this moment on, i am going to purchase Alissa's books and get a dehydrator and once i have finished my fast in April i will go straight onto the raw life. fluctuate between Alissa's cooking and the 811 diet, which i am reading that right now, and find it very interesting.
That is it for today.
Hope to share more in the days to come.
consider it pure joy, my brothers, when ever you face trials of many kinds because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance. Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete. Not lacking anything.Thank you Jesus.
