So here's a question. Last week, my pastor spoke about the discipline of fasting as a way to get insight into a particular issue into your life--a day of prayer, bible reading, meditation, and of course, not eating. It sounds like a good idea for me right now; for one, I have a personal issue I need to gain some insight on, and two, my daughter will be away at camp for part of the week, so I actually have the time and space to focus on my own stuff.
But I'm a little worried because of my weight loss journey. I've been going up and down with some binging and emotional eating, having about five days per week on track and a couple of days of overeating and feeling bad about it.
Maybe fasting would be a good discipline, but maybe I would get so hungry that it would send me into an eating frenzy (this has happened before with overly strict diets).
Opinions on fasting, anyone?
