The end of the fast

I never knew I'd become a cat person. This is Baxter.

I'm done with the fast. After three days (counting the day I tried to cheat, but vomited up the food instead) and after listening to the words of many a concerned friend, I have decided that this fast is not right for me. While, because of my lifelong obsession, albeit a sick one, with weight, I loved some of the 'effects' of the fast, I also love food, and I realize that three days are more than enough without food and that life is too short to deprive myself of said thing.

Of course, you have to reintroduce food back into the body slowly, so today it's all about soup. And my boy is still fasting, something that worries me, as he never weighed much, wet or dry, and now he weighs much less, but that's his trip not mine. Well, at least that's what I keep telling myself.

I feel good about what I did, I mean three days has to do some sort of bodily cleansing, and while for a moment, I felt like a failure, I now know that I am not. I also know that I'm not one to fast on a regular basis, even if my spiritually conscious boyfriend is, and while I love doing everything together, sometimes we don't have to do everything together.

Still, it's nice to have a partner, and I will be here to support him over these next few foodless days.

In other news, I may have some other big news to report this week. Stuff I'm excited about and stuff I'm working on. And it's a Saturday and tonight I'm planning on dancing, after I finish teaching a class. FYI - I love teaching, esp. bachelorette parties, so if you know of anyone having one, suggest me to them.

Okay, now I'm going back to other work. Sometimes I just have to stop long enough to blog. I'm a whore. What can I say?

oh, yeah, if you want to read more about what I wrote about the fast before I decided to quit it, read it here or just go to Souldish.com.
