So a little back history. I have struggled with weight issues all my life. Added to having 5 pregnancies, I saw the weight climb over the years. I tend to fluctuate up and down but the last couple of years I steady rode up hill. In the last few months I really decided I needed to do something drastic to shock my body, especially after deciding bariatric surgery was not an Avenue inward ready to go down. One day, a few weeks ago, out of the blue, I remembered a sweet old man i met about 20 years ago. He told me he had lost 40 pounds with this thing called the master cleanse, and gave me information about it. Of course at the time, i bought the book, the supplies and tried it....I lasted one day and never tried again. Until now, so I decided I am mentally ready to try it once more and see where it goes. As far as the cleanse concoction, I opted to order the packets online because I knew I wouldnt have or make the time to make them fresh. I had been working myself into it for a few days, easing on my food, drinking lots of smoothies and cutting back on food intake in preparation of the monday to come. I don't really have any goals, just hoping to shock my body into change. I am shooting for 10 day cleanse, but if I'm not dying by then, I will try to go to 20 days.
Day 1, I started today ready and although I thought it wouldn't be easy, It was not too rough. I didn't do any herbal laxative tea, nor did I do the salt water flush. Will see how that impacts me. I drank about 36 ounces of the concoction, but that is because i tend to drink a lot of water and kept forgetting to add the packets. End of the day had one normal bowel movement and I'm feeling okay. Down 2 lbs exactly.
Day 2, woke up today still feeling okay. Had a bowel movement, although not too much came out. My laxative tea comes tomorrow, so hope that helps. I had a few moments where I thought of food and a few times I felt hungry, buy after drinking my concoction, I was fine. Also I'm down 3 lbs for a total of 5 lbs.
Day 3, today was a mental struggle. Constantly going back and forth between how good I feel and I want to stop. It's not a physical hunger, it is definitely mental. Still had a bowl movement,but not much. My tea came in, so I am going to drink some tonight. Hope tomorrow is easier. Also down 1.6 lbs for a total of 6.6 lbs.
Day 4, so I woke up to a rumbling tummy. I assume the tea is working. I drank the salt water flush. Holy crap that is so disgusting 🤢. It took me almost 20 mins to drink it. Within 30 minutes I was in the bathroom. I pooped for about an hour and a half. Most was bright yellow liquids. But once it came out I was good. I drank about 48 ounces of the concoction. The first half of the day was tough. I felt tired. I had many random thoughts about what meals I wanted to cook. I noticed 2 things. One, y eyeballs are really white. Usually they are red or an off whitish color, but now they are really white. Second, I have a whitish layer on my tongue. Hope that doesn't last
Also, I feel cotton mouth no matter how much I drink water. Despite all, things changed as the day progressed and the last half of the day was good. I drank some herbal tea before bed. Also down 1 lbs, for a total of 7.6 lbs lost.
