Thanks Karen61...you've inspired me too.
I also felt alone about it & it was more difficult to have it in my awareness each week.
The last time i tried to fast it went amazingly straight-forward.
I made a start anyways and did it with some tea and bread..tea because it was cold but i'll try to improve my fasting as time goes on.
I could get about my business as usual because of having the bread-i often wondered what the idea of having the bread was,,,but obviously it helps to not get all weak or wobbly etc. i didnt' have too much of it & i used a 'pita' bread variety & i had some just before bed & again in the morning and afternoon. The usual fast is to start from 6pm the evening before..isn't this correct?
Best of luck with your fasting!!
