I am on day three of the water fast. Only it’s not actually a pure water fast (I’m still having two cups of black coffee). And also, I should be on day four because on the original first day I only lasted until 5:30 pm before giving in.
Was I discouraged on the first day when I succumbed to that toasted bagel with cheese? Sure. But not completely. My kids have witnessed me start a diet and fail many times. But I have never felt completely defeated. I tell them it doesn’t matter how many times you try and fail because one day, one attempt will take, and you will succeed.
As long as you don’t give up.
