Fasting to A Higher Consciousness?? Day 3

Yes, Carol has joined all those "Hollywood Fasters" and the thousands of men and women fasting for peace nationwide and here in DC.

TROOPS HOME FASTers at Gandhi statute on July 3 and Carol's weight (yes 191.8 lbs) on July 4th. See video my page on and more photos at
As for the state of my consciousness, the first thing I noticed when I started fasting was my constant desire to eat because I was BORED!! Yes, it is true, spending 8 - 10 hours a day pounding away here making revolution (even as a very handsome black male dog sleeps on my bed to keep me company) , as much fun as it is, is NOT enough!! Not enough to satisfy my inherent need for love, learning, and self-actualization! And so I cook (and I'm so good at it!) and eat as a means of diversion. I ate my way up to 230 lbs by late 2004.
And then I had my first GALL BLADDER attack so I knew I had to change my wicked ways. With a little help from a sweet and loving friend (but dang he won't marry me!!) I lost 50 lbs during 2005. (And gained 10 lbs back last winter.) So maybe with the help of TROOPS HOME FAST I'll lose another 20 - 30 lbs this year.
Weak gall bladders and hearts run in the family, so if at 58 - with NO health insurance, of course!! - I want to live to make the big revolutions of 2010-2015, I gotta get thin and healthy!
Thanks for listening guys!! Keep coming back!

Go, Carol!

I think my GB is also trying to making me into a potential faster, so maybe I'll join you soon.
