Still on the juice and finally down to 138 as of this morning! I was told that I was wasting away to nothing yesterday which pleased me of course. 11 pounds total from the start of the first fast. I can definitely see a difference in the mirror now. My stomach is virtually flat (as flat as mine can get) and I feel so strangely light. My new goal is to make it to ten days, and since tomorrow is day 9 it doesn't seem so impossible. The last few evenings I keep telling myself I'm going to eat a tomato but something keeps pushing me on and fine again all day until I get home. My boss had a surprise birthday party for her assistant yesterday and thank GOD I'm not a big sweets person cause the whole cake in my face for three hours thing didn't bother me in the least. (I passed on the champagne cause I knew it would go straight to my head.) Now if it were a plate of low-mein on the other hand I don't think I could have resisted. Well maybe knowing that the eating would soon be followed by an immediate need to use the bathroom in a place where there is one bathroom and a few people I don't know very well...ahhhh maybe that would have stopped me too.
I started having hunger pangs yesterday. Maybe I'm drinking as much juice as I had been? They go away as soon as I drink but it feels odd to have them. The other thing that is odd is that I've actually had to REALLY use the bathroom every day since I started. Maybe it's the small black coffee I've allowed myself everyday. I know I know, detox. I couldn't let go of just a little caffiene. Today at work REALLY seemed to drag. Made me keep wanting to quit. I think it's because I'm thinking about the juicing at most moments of the day. It is kind of all consuming. I've read that so many people are able to read and think and clean and do a ton of stuff but it takes my whole being somehow to stay on this and therefore I sleep, drink, dream and talk it. I FINALLY managed to focus enough to get some laundry done. I still feel really high energy. That hasn't stopped. But I really really am starting to crave food. I think 10 days, with a 5 day transition period, one day of free eating and then a strict diet are to follow... Oh and my skin feels ultra soft. I noticed this last time too!
Please excuse the lack of writing lately. I couldn't for the life of me remember the password I'd used on this account and then couldn't remember out of the many email addresses I have which obscure one I used, to even have my password sent!
