Sunday Evening.

A failure establishes only this, that our determination to succeed was not strong enough. 
(John Christian Bovee)

The difference between the impossible and the possible lies in a person's determination. 
(Tommy Lasorda)

First of all, I was tagged in Elegant Thinspo's blog entry to answer the following questions, so here they are:

1. What are you wearing today?
Long black leggings, a boyfriend cardigan and a green boat neck top. Sunday comfy.
2. What is your favourite LP right now?
At the moment- Led Zeppelin's IV.
3. What strange things do you do?
In the morning, I always make sure my right foot is the first one to touch the floor; I make eye-contact with every single person that passes me by on the street and that's pretty much for the strange things I can think of right now.
4. When do you find it hard to resist food the most?
Evenings; my stomach urges me to give in and have dinner.
5. What are the first five things you do in the morning?
Try to persuade myself it's Saturday. If not, I look at the time, terrified get out of my bed, rush to the bathroom, brush my teeth and do my make-up. Hmm, that's six,  but they're all essential :).
6. Any creative activity?
I love to play the piano (have played for almost 12 years now), draw, sing, read and write poetry.
7. What are you doing when you go out?
Hang out with friends, smoke hookah, when at home (in Europe), drink beer.

And that, I think, is the end of this thread. Sorry about letting it die like this, Elegant Thinspo.

And back to the Sunday post. Yesterday was my third day of fasting, and, let me tell you, it was BAD. I had read a lot about the 3rd day being miserable, but I HAD NO IDEA... I woke up with a headache, felt nauseous and was sure that if I didn't have a bite of basically anything, I'd feel like that for the rest of the day. Well, so I had to eat breakfast, which, of course, helped immediately, though I felt horrible for breaking my fast so abruptly. And today, I ate a broccoli and cauliflower salad for breakfast and, even though I feel really ashamed, I have to admit I had to have dinner also (a cheese/ turkey sandwich). Yes, I know... I'm feeling VERY guilty.

Tomorrow I resume my no/minimum calorie intake plan. I know I've lost some weight already (and it makes me feel even more determined to lose more) so I'd really like to try out the water fast-- consuming nothing but water for 5 days, and on the 6th day, add some non-liquid food and keep the calories on minimum. Oh, and bad news- the battery in my digital scale died so I can't weigh myself until I get to go shopping (which will be who knows when...). Now THAT makes me feel anxious. Hopefully (if I stick to my 5-day water fast) it'll be a nice surprise in a couple of days when I finally get to weigh myself again.

Please wish me luck with my try number 2.


  1. good luck with your fast and please go shopping for scales soon, they're so important. and you could treat yourself with a face mask or accessories when you're shopping anyway :)

    i also try to make eye contact with passers by. haha sometimes they act so funnily when they really are scared to look into a stranger's eyes.

    stay thin and determined

  2. Gosh you're doing so well :) Tomorrow I begin my first fast in far too long, and I hope I can do as well as you.

    Chin up, stay strong
