Today is day one in my planned 20 days of fasting. I'm not all that religious by any means, but I am grateful and God's blessed me so I wanted to say thanks by making this huge sacrifice. I've never done anything like this before and I know it's going to be difficult, but I thought that if I shared what I was doing it would make me even more committed to seeing it through.
The rules: No food what so ever for 20 days. I'm allowing myself to drink liquids, so I can have milk, juice, and water- but no food during this time.
So last night I went to Denny's and had a Philly Cheese Steak sandwich for my last meal. I was sitting waiting for my food and I noticed the lady behind the counter kept stuffing tons of to-go boxes into a take out bag. I was the only person that had a take-out order, so I kept looking around wondering where all that food was going. She boxed it up and approached me and say, "Here you go". Confused, I said, "thanks" and went on my way. I know I should have said something but I ordered a side of onion rings so I started thinking maybe she put the sandwich in one box, the napkins in another, and the onion rings in yet another. When I got home I found out that I had 4 double cheeseburgers, 20 hotwings, onion rings, and a Philly Cheese Steak sandwich. Is this Santan's way of tempting me...
I ate half a burger, the onion rings, and the Philly Sandwich-
and gave the rest away. The only thing I've had today was water and thankfully I haven't had much of an appetite, I'm probably still full from my late night meal last night.
I'll update this thread probably twice a day. Wish me luck everybody!
