End of 2 Week Fast


After breaking fast at 7.14pm yesterday, I could proudly say that I have completed 14 days of solid food fasting.
However, I shamefully regret that I have to end the fast.
I have been losing body mass since I started the fast.
Even though I think the majority of what was lost consisted of fat, I should stop before I lose more than I can gain back.
I will be taking part in a pageant in November & casting for some TVCs soon so I will need to look & feel my best.

This 14 day fast is the longest time I have ever fasted in succession & also my first fast in 3-4 years!
After completing 14 days, I have found the fast to be very beneficial to my lifestyle & wellbeing.
I think I will continue to enjoy the benefits long after my fast.

Being hungry for the whole day has helped me appreciate food more.
I started savouring each bite & enjoying my food more.
Even the most tasteless & plain of foods can provide great satisfaction.

I have also begun to consciously make more healthy food choices.
I knew that I was going to have limited food intake every day so I decided to make my meals as nutritious as possible.
I significantly reduced my intake of rice & refined carbs.
I made up for the loss of tummy filling with extra vege, meat & fruits.

Having a large group of good friends enjoying a meal with you is a rare joy indeed.
We share laughs & day's experiences before, during & after the meal!
The company of my greatest buddies at the end of the day has been something that I look forward to every day.

Upon reflection, I think that this fasting month may be the only month of the year where some families have dinner together!
I also think that this month is probably the only month in a year when food is truly appreciated.

I had a wonderful fasting experience!
And I would like to thank my Malay buddies for being supportive & accommodating.

To all my Muslim friends,
Happy Fasting!
Sorry I cant accompany you all the way!
=D

    Oh, I only fasted solids in the day time...
    I consumed solids in the evenings.

    I'm not sure what I will be involved in...
    It depends on who wants to be involved with me.

    Vio:
    thanks, vio!

    Van:
    Hebat~~
    Well done!
    But it doesnt count as a fast because its not more than 12hrs since you last meal!
    But... good attempt by Van & Step...

  10. Good on u!
    Yeah fasting does make u reflect on the basics in life.. i.e food, water,family ties. I think that's what Ramadhan is for..its suppose to make you feel a lil bit more humble in life ;)

    Anyway, congrats on making it for 2 weeks! ;) But hw is it u've been losing weight, yet the needle on my weighin machine refuses to budge on me! haih. haha

    ps-Jarod.. what pageant? hahah Could it be..Cleo Most Eligible Bachelor? lol ;)

  14. Have you even read what I have written?
    I fasted for 14 days, dear...
    I have no reason to want to fast for 30 days.

    I'm currently trying to work my body into the shape it was in before I started fasting.
