Yahoo!!!!! Good for you! Your hard work is paying off!
Way to go!!!! Wow, you're SO CLOSE!! I bet you can almost taste it already, eh? I can't really imagine what having only 1.5 lbs left to lose would feel like....I promised myself the fasting at least twice a week would start TODAY. So far, so good! (but, of course, the munchies haven't hit yet either!) Because I've got no fruit or veggie juice in the house right now, I'll probably allow myself a serving or two of real fruit and/or veggies, but nothing else until supper.
So just out of curiosity to you fasting folk...how often do you actually use your fasting time as getting closer to God? I'm not trying to insult what you're doing - but it just seems to me that fasting & spending time with God go hand in hand. To me it seems like fasting should be a once in awhile thing when you are really seeking God or waiting for an answer from Him about something. With it being just a regular habitual thing you add to your schedule...does it not lose its importance and meaning?
