So, my youngest daughter and I are embarking on a juice fast. We are aiming for 10 days. If, at the end of 10 days, we feel better, we will shoot for a longer goal. I am hoping that this fast can rid me of my cravings for carbs and help to cure my addiction to food. I am also hoping that it helps her to learn to make better food choices and enjoy eating healthier.
I won’t lie. I also pray that I can lose a fair amount of weight doing this, as well.
I have been thinking for a while that my eating habits and my obesity are sinful. That they are in direct opposition to what God wants for me. I am nowhere near the condition that He created me to be in. I am fat, unhealthy, depressed, disgusted. I am being further convicted that it is interfering with my spiritual health, as well. So, during this fast, I will also be seeking God and His will for my life in all areas.
I will be chronicling my journey, so hopefully it’s eye-opening for someone. If not eye-opening, at the very least, I pray it’s entertaining.
Down the hatch!
