It was the strangest thing today. I hate to use the term "anti-climactic", but knowing I could eat today was kind of like Christmas morning: Half the fun of Christmas is the excitement leading up to it. Once the presents are open, then that's it.
Anyway, last night I had my last juice for the fast: pineapple, apple, ginger and strawberry. It was awesome! By far one the best I have ever had.
This morning, I took all of my post-fast measurments and packed--my lunch! I brought an apple to work for breakfast and peeled it, because I was concerned that the skin would be little much for my hibernating stomach. It was the best apple I have ever had.
For lunch I had a fruit salad, but I was only able to eat a little. I am so content, and suddenly sleepy! I wonder if it's because all of the energy is suddenly be redirected back to the digestive system. I have a feeling it will take a couple weeks for this to balance just as going on the fast did.
As for my stats:
Thigh: -1.5"/each = -3"/both
Total: -19.75" total...Holy crap! I had NO idea!
By the way, I like how my upper body loses more weight, but that butt just does not want to go down. Ha!
Also, I got my Ann Taylor suit in, and it is beautiful! The pants fit perfectly, and the jacket might be considered 1 size too big. And these are sizes I haven't fit into for more than 10 years.
As you know, I was on the SAD diet before the fast; therefore, I never really ate much fruit. The fruit was awesome in drinks, but I found out today, that I still cannot eat many types of fruit alone. BUT, the good news is that I love vegetables like spinach, broccoli, etc. along with seeds and nuts, which is good.
Anyway, I want to send a little message to Midge: I was reading through my journal, and you were right about the growing and ups and downs. But I also noticed how much you really helped me with your encouragements. Thank you!
Okay...enough mushy stuff. : )
I hope you all have a great day. I am going to try to make some dressing tonight. Keep your fingers crossed!
