i am a lazy faster. i am definitely not one of those spiritual giants that fast for 24 hours. i do the two meal thing-kind of. i have only been fasting regularly(most every month, unless i forget.)for the last 2-3 years. i have been a member all my life, but my parents never taught us to fast. until recently(2-3 years ago), i would fast only if there was something big and important to fast about. you know, ward or stake fasts for someone to be healed or something like that.
since i have started fasting, its never really bothered me. probably because i am a lazy faster. usually i will eat dinner saturday night, then dessert a few hours later and then start my fast when i say my prayers before bed. i always break my fast when i get home from church. with most block times, this usually means i technically missed breakfast and lunch, but it also usually means i am eating a really early dinner. see? lazy.
last night i ate a really early dinner. i wasnt feeling so good, so i went to bed early. with meetings and everything, i wont be home until 4. i am already hungry. really hungry. this fast sunday is going to be a humbling experience.
