I can't tell you how glad I am to be over with the Master Cleanse. Thursday night I started eating again. Well, not eating real food just raw veggies and fruit. I took it pretty easy as to not upset my stomach and it worked.
Friday, I had fresh orange juice for breakfast and some veggie tacos for lunch and then I hit the big time for dinner! We went to Panera!!! Broccoli Cheddar in a bread bowl never tasted so yummy!
Now, let me just give you a little bodily background and catch you up to speed. Since I stopped taking the laxative tea at night and in the morning and since I stopped drinking the lemonade I noticed that my body was no longer producing "movements". I also noticed that I started feeling pretty heavy. So, I checked the scaled and noticed that I had gained 8 lbs over night! I was discouraged but not totally disappointed. I simply waited it out and it paid off.
Well, as of today I'm sorta back to normal. I was finally able to "go" and that obviously helped with weight loss but I'm not back to 305lbs as I was right before going back to normal food. I think my body is holding on to water in a major way!!! I had to take one of my rings off because I was that bloated. I've easily had about 1/2 gallon of water today and I've only had to go once or twice since waking up this morning.
Ok, enough about my bodily functions!
Here are some interesting perks of the Cleanse.
On day 3 or 4 I noticed that I could smell so much more.
I could smell people's breath from 4 feet way (good, bad and ugly). I could smell their previous meal coming off their pores.
I felt more mentally alert. I could concentrate so much better.
I slept so much better. By 10:30pm I was more than ready for bed and by 6am I was up and ready to go!!
My morning breath so was different too! I can't explain it but it almost tasted OK unlike the norm when I can't wait to brush my teeth.
I was more perky that normal. And for those of you who know me I can't say that you'd characterize me as perky...
My body also began to feel clean. It's an odd sensation but it seriously felt clean. Hard to explain.
My sister did notice that my skin was "off" color. I think it looked better but she seems to think I looked sickly...I think she's crazy!
Oh, and this was totally great! For some weird reason I noticed that both my feet and legs were looking much smaller than normal. I remember checking out my toes and thinking "wow they look so much smaller". So I pointed it out to my sister and she told me to try on the "Shoes". You know that one pair of shoes that we all own that are total murder to put on and wear but we can't stand to give them up because they're so cute...yeah that pair. I went and grabbed them from my closet and it's awesome to report that my feet slipped right in. I loved it!!!
So, I'm off to start my weekend festivities. Thanks for reading!
