Happy Valentine's Day! Day 1 of Juice Fast.

Well yesterday went fairly well for my first day on the juice fast. But it wasn't easy! Towards dinner time and all the way up until I fell asleep, I was craving all sorts of food. When I went to bed all I could think about was what I wanted to eat once I got off this juice fast and I tell ya, it wasn't healthy! I wanted pad thai, Tahoe Joe's steak burger, pasta with white sauce, and pizza. I went to bed at 11 but I didn't fall asleep until well after.
Yesterday I did all three parts of the bowel cleanse (the pills, the powder, and the tea at the end of the day), I took my vitamins, and I drank water, grapefruit juice, and vegetable broth that I made myself. I didn't have a bowel movment though, which was disappointing.
I know that yesterday, 199.5lbs. wasn't my normal weight. I was bloated and I could tell my stomach was holding in a lot of water. Even during the day I weighed myself 3 times and each time I lost a pound or 2. But bloated or not, the scale doesn't lie.
I went to the apartment gym and biked for 27 minutes and then I walked at Open Space for a bit. I don't know for how long because my left foot was really starting to act up AGAIN. I'm so sick of it. All I can think about is how I got myself to be this heavy that I'm starting not to be able to handle it.
The only thing that can get me through this is the picture in my head of the parasites and my own vain desire to fit into all those clothes I bought but can't fit. I have a lot of temptations though. For example I have to go and be with my sister while she cooks food for the restaurant. I'm sure they're going to want me to taste test and I don't think that I can say no. But we'll see what happens. If I go weigh myself right now before I leave with my sister and I lost a few lbs., then maybe that'll encourage me not to eat anything later today.
The only thing wrong with yesterday that I could have done better was to drink lots more water. Right now I don't even know how much I'm drinking. I just take cup after cup. I did go to the bathroom a lot though and eventually my pee started to look clear. Also, with my tea at night I ate a small piece of chocolate just to make myself feel better. Ok ok.... I had 2 pieces. !!!
Wish me luck!
Today's weight: 195lbs.
