Ramadan officially began this evening !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
As you can see, I am terribly excited because my wonderful fasting begins tomorrow morning, before sunrise :]
As far as food consumption/fasting goes I plan to:
  • wake up at 4:45 a.m.
  • drink a glass of chocolate soymilk, a glass of water, and eat an orange
  • go back to sleep
  • wake up at 8 and do whatever I may do all day long
  • wait for the sun to set and drink a glass of V8, glass of water, and MAYBE an apple
  • finally feel starved after too many days of bingeing
  • wake up for the next month repeating this same eating schedule
In my jolly state this ridiculous plan sounds good, but I'm sure I'll see the utter silliness of it later haha....but I think I'll be getting enough calories/nutrition (veggies, soy protein, fruit) to not die. I'm abusing my religion...Ramadan is not a means of unhealthily starving yourself...however it is a means of disciplining yourself and that is precisely what I am doing. Disciplining my body.
What do you think?

Here's a new photo (actually, it's old. this is from December 2008, a few days after my eye surgery and the beginning of my ED):

I always wished I could fast for Ramadan.

Looks like a good plan... and sorry if this sounds stupid but i think it's awesome to believe in something that includes these periods when you can fast or "discipline your body" :D

Btw thanks for your comment on my post, i also think "One Hundred Years of Solitude" is an awesome book, i can't wait to finish reading it!

Take care

owie for the eyeball. that looks the same as the time i was in my car accident and burst a blood vessel in my eye. it was horrible. it didnt go away for a few weeks. and yes, i think disciplining yourself is good. because thats what you have to do anyway when you want to lose weight right? now you actually have a reason to do it and get on track!

ACK! I missed the picture!

I say do what makes you happy! That's MY religion! So I fully support this fasting extravaganza!

Stay Strong!
