Day 6 14 y
Day 6 gone...4 more to go!
I added the syrup back in today...just a little bit, but I felt MUCH better than yesterday. I even worked a 10 hour day and then went for a walk afterwards. I did not drink enough lemonade, but I still had quite a few eliminations. I may do the salt water again tomorrow or the next day, but so far the tea at night and in the morning definitely gets me moving more than the salt water.
I woke up this morning (day 6) and weighed. I have lost a total of 10 pounds. It’s crazy because even the night before I was still only down 3 and this morning I was down another7 pounds to make 10. I ... read more
Day 5 not so good.... 14 y
I cheated tonight
Well, it was actually a great day for eliminations. I had quite a few bms today and I didn’t do the swf. I just did lax tea last night and this morning. I went just about every hour up until 3:00 or so. I was really pleased with that...it’s amazing to see results like that after having no solid food for 5 days.
However......today was the biggest struggle so far with wanting to eat!! So much so that I actually gave in tonight :( I had a granola bar when I got home. I went in the kitchen to prepare my tea for the evening and I was like a moth to the flame. I just wanted so badly to c ... read more
Days 3 and 4 14 y
Days 3 and 4...some graphic parts, read at your own risk!
The past two days have been pretty uneventful. I’m having a hard time getting enough of the lemonade and I’ve almost eliminated all of the maple syrup in my drinks...I just can’t stand it! I’ve been reading the main reason for the syrup is for calories, energy, etc so I figure I will keep it to a minimum unless I begin to feel like I need the strength.
Still no hunger...just really REALLY missing food. I didn’t pass anything on day 3 which was pretty discouraging, but I also didn’t start with the swf. The tea seems to do nothing for me, but I only drink it at night. Tomorrow I’m goin ... read more
Day Two 14 y
Still not hungry, but I'd like some gum...
I still feel great!!! I started the day with the swf and that’s probably the last time I’ll do it. Although I really liked the immediate results, I cannot stand the taste. I’m afraid the tea just won’t be the same though. Still no hunger at all and the hardest part has been not chewing gum as I usually go through about a pack a day. I’m wondering if I’m going to see all of the pieces I’ve swallowed over the years come out :)
I did 6 glasses of lemonade today. It’s not too difficult if you’re planful, but a couple of times I felt panicked when I realized I was only on day 2 and still had ... read more
End of Day One 14 y
Thoughts at the end of the day
I did it!! One thing I did not do, however, was drink enough of the lemonade. The day kinda got away from me and I had about 4 glasses...nowhere near where I should be. But I consider today a success....still, as I am about to crawl into bed, I have yet to feel any real hunger. Sure my body wants food, but I am certainly not ”hungry”

Day One, Morning 14 y
I can do this...
I really enjoyed my ”get regular” tea last night....reminds me of the tea I drink when I get my hair done at Aveda. Very calming. I will definitely enjoy that part.
I woke up around 4am for a small bm, but I think that was mostly due to it being the first day on my period. Luckily, I don’t have a hard time going back to sleep (which is good because based on some research I have done, I will have many late night ”wake ups” on this cleanse!)
Tried the SWF this morning...yuck. I did half of it and shortly after had another small bm, but nothing like what I have been reading about. W ... read more
The Night Before.... 14 y
My account of the night before the cleanse.
I’ve been waiting for this moment...wondering what it would look like. I just returned home from a ”one year anniversary” date. I’ve eaten everything today I thought I might miss having over the next couple of weeks...possibly longer depending on my eating habits after the cleanse.
I have taken pictures and decided to weigh myself in the morning for a more accurate number...sipping on my lax. tea as I write. After looking at the pictures, I am realizing I have been in major denial of how heavy I have become. I am excited about this mainly because I truly feel I have the right motivati ... read more
