Nov 2012 monthly fasting thread. Join any time of the month.
PLEASE... feel free to join this thread any time ... we loooove having new friends to fast with!!!
Here's are the 'rules' of this thread:
Please do not discuss specific food. Feel free to share "My hubby was eating and it was hard for me." Please don't share "My hubby was eating X, Y and Z..."
The reason we do this is so no one ends up getting a craving from a fasting thread. As a faster we can choose to click on a thread which discusses food but we need the safety within this thread to know food is not discussed. Juices are shared, M/C is shared, green smoothie recipes are shared... but not 'chewable' food.
Please join us... by listening to our theme song. We all come together... from around the world to fast together and support each other. Please join us!
There is a great deal of info in this stickie. Please take a moment to read it.
And here is a thread where we share our favourite recipes. If you haven't contributed yours, please do!
Here's my commitment:
I'm here to fast. I'm not here to eat. I will fast until I choose to stop but I will NOT stop my fast on a bad day, at night or today. I can choose to break my fast tomorrow in the morning but not today.
I'm here to gain health.
I'm here to gift my body the time and energy to bring my body to a state of health.
I'm here to release - whatever needs to be released. Physical, emotional, conscious or unconscious out-moded things... I'm here to release them all.
I'm here to bring a greater depth to my spirituality.
I'm here to support myself, my super amazing husband Parz, and anyone here who wants support.
I am here to continue to be mindful - focusing on this moment and not anticipating the next one.
I am here to share my experience and gain knowledge from what others share.
I'm here to feel whole. I'm here to give my beautiful, cherished body a break from digesting food!!!
This is the "Fellowship of the Fasters" - unlike the LOTRs fellowship of nine, we are a fellowship of many. We welcome newcomers daily and embrace everyone no matter what they are fasting on or their personal beliefs.
Yes you can prefer green juices to fruit. Yes you can use agave instead of maple syrup or raw honey. Yes you can juice in your Vita-Mix and use a nut mylk bag to extract your juices.
We don't care how you fast... we want to support you... and in turn, we ourselves get supported... so please... join us!!!
Come on everyone.. join in the fun and grab your Elf, Dwarf, Hobbit or Human names for our "Fellowship of the Fasters"... you just make them up, it isn't from the book/movie. (if you want to participate) and put it in your signature line!
Ever wonder how the Fellowship began?
Back when I first began fasting there were the Fasting Bandits. This was a group of amazing people who fasted together all the time. The 'theme' was a convoy of truckers. I was the water tanker! Over time the Fasting Bandits moved on with their lives and weren't around much at all. A few of the members are still here... but seldom fasting anymore.
I was missing the camaraderie of the FB and was always hoping to find a new group to fast with, find support with and to support myself. The Fellowship of Fasters began because Cathy and I watch the movie Lord of the Rings a LOT and we fast together a LOT as well. We began speaking to each other as though we were Golum - and our juice was our precious.
And then the Fellowship of Fasters was born!
So to be a member... you simply need to choose a name, put it in your signature line and love fasting. You can become a life-time member or one for a short time... it's up to you.
I'm here for the long haul. My water tanker is here beside me - because I'll always be a Fasting Bandit... but now my precious walks beside on a slower path than the truckers... enjoying the grass at my feet and the flowers growing out of the cracks and crevices in the rocks around me.
What a lovely introduction. Going to start the november fast with an enema. I wish everyone good luck.
That was a really nice introduction Aleesha:)
I'm in. Today is day 3 of a 30 day juice fast, so I'll be here with everyone most of the month
I'll be here periodically but certainly every Sunday night through Tuesday morning :)
Yes I am in too! Yes it is a very nice introduction.
I am on day 5 of a juice fast (with the occasional green smoothie if need be). I joined the October fasting forum a few days a go.
Gianni are you around for November? I really appreciated your support last month.
Mystic Tree it is good to see you here. Thank you so much for your comments on my blog.
Wishing you all well,

Hey Cristal! I'll be lurking around, but I'm not due to juice fast again until the beginning of December.

Thanks Gianni, I will be looking out for you. I posted some questions that I have for you up on your visitor board. I will be going to Brazil for 6 months come December and I was hoping you could give me some tips and tricks.

So today is day 7 of my juice and water fast! After tomorrow I think I will be ending my fast for a few days.
I am just wondering how is everyone's fasting going?

I'm going for a three day water fast tomorrow, longer if possible. I have so much emotional/physical junk that needs to be released.
Cookie Monster, still trundling along here
Today is day 7 of 30
Yesterday had a blah day with a slight headache. Today feeling much better
Off to go for a hike
Have a great fasting day folks
Today is Day 1 of a juice fast for me. I finally found fennel at the store I go to, by pure accident actually. I'd thought it was a leek... XD
I had a carrot, fennel, apple and ginger juice and it was so awesome. Fennel has all these amazing benefits, too, from what I've read online.
