Day 10 - Incredible Journey

OK, you start off with this thing for different reasons, and yes I was the shallow one who ONLY wanted to lose weight to go on vacation. I’m not a vegetarian, and I’m not into non-mainstream things in life and pretty much just love my son and sports, in that order. But…..I never thought about the changes that your body undergoes in order to adapt to the world we live in. Most importantly, we must resist the urge to eat just because it’s there, if it’s really bad for you (save it for something special) and the portions are completely out of control. I think that is what I’ve spent the most amount of time (and dreams) thinking about what does food really mean to me. I adore it, I value it and I get more out of it than most people. But I don’t HAVE to have it and this has taught me that moderation, appreciation, giving thanks to God and the products that went into it should not be taken so lightly. Every item should be appreciated. Now that I’ve only had what 5 items in my system (water, citrus, syrup, cayenne, salt, tea) for 10 days, the narrow focus and repetition, while boring, freed me up to think about other things I want to do and be. NOT “What are we going to do for dinner..one more time” that I always ask my son. We never went out to dinner, I didn’t have to provide for him and we evolved into other conversations, which were exponentially more meaningful in the scheme of things. So I guess I’m surprised at where the journey led me and affected everyone around me. I didn’t get bitchy, as I thought I would, which was really good. I actually became more sympathetic and supportive. Maybe because I just didn’t have the energy to fight things! lol But I really do hope that these are permanent changes, that old habits don’t return and the healthy feeling stays with me to make better choices in my life. I’m worth it!

I was up many times in the night (the tea just works) so I’m not doing the SWF one last time (too bad). I will make my LA and truly just enjoy the finality of it for now. I am looking forward to the taste, texture and experience of the orange juice. Like a gift. Then tomorrow I’ll buy the vegetable broth and vegetables to get other things in my body. I hope it’s a smooth transition and then I’ll be rocking by Friday.

Finally, thank you so much to everyone for sharing yourselves and the intimacy on this board. I can’t wait to hear how everyone is faring.

Cheers!

Pamper Yourself Works!!!

I made it through the day after doing everything I was supposed to. The tea last night, the SWF this morning, and got down most of the LA. But I am starting to really long for texture and moving my jaws again. So I went and tanned and then got the most amazing manicure and pedicure I think I’ve ever had in my life! Just to be pampered after everything I’ve gone through, I would highly recommend doing something self-indulgent to get through the last couple of days. I know it’s worked for me! And I went to Vitamin Cottage and found organic orange juice so no more squeezing for me after tomorrow. Yippee! I think that’s just fine with me! So I have to go get the makings for the vegetable suit, but I realized if I had it here I would probably go ahead and eat it! Maybe I can make it on Wednesday so it’s ready to eat on Thursday and I need something easy while I’m packing. So I think I’ve probably lost a couple more pounds and I really do feel so much healthier and yes, lighter, in spirit and in weight! So let’s hope tomorrow goes fast and I get through one more round of SWF. I just can’t believe how fast and slow it went! But you have all made this journey so much more enlightening and enjoyable and I hope the next time I do this I have great people again to help me get through it. I definitely couldn’t have done it without all of you! GOOOOOOO TEAM!



Day 8 - End of Day

Well it was tough but I made it through the day, out and about and not enough LA to get me through. And I didn’t cheat at the birthday party either (not worth it for chicken spaghetti) so I guess the will power is still going strong. Thanks to Cie for the inspiration and just the right time. If I hadn’t read the email in the car, I seriously doubt I would have made it. Everyone in my family thinks I’m crazy, of course, and want to argue against everything you could think of: lemons and maple syrup can’t possibly be enough nutrition, chicken is not hard to digest, my mother would end up in the hospital (10 times she said this). You know, really encouraging words! lol So thank GOD for you guys! I may be crazy but at least I’m not alone and look and feel better than I have in years. So everyone who’s just getting started, I definitely recommend this as a completely lifestyle change, will power test and truly something worth doing. The benefits are too big to ignore but you definitely have to have staying power through some ups and downs to get through it. Thanks, nodromio and Cie. You guys ROCK! 2 MORE DAYS TO GO! GO TEAM!!!

Day 8 - And sticking with it!!!

I did the tea and was up in the night which I think is a good thing. Went again this morning and now I’m drinking water instead of the SWF so I can get through the day without spending it in the bathroom. I seem to have a very strong reaction to that stuff. And I go 15 times a day, not 1 or 2 like most of you. I’m going through toilet paper like crazy, too. Something else to remember for the next time. Yes, I did say the next time. I really have become a believer in all of the benefits. I don’t think it matters if you start off with one reason and end up with so many other benefits. It just matters that you set a goal, find your willpower and see it all the way through. Go the distance!

So I’m scheduled to go to my sister’s house for my neices 2 year birthday. Take the to go bag of stuff and hopefully I will make it through the day. I just have 3 more to go and I just can’t even believe its been 7 full days since I’ve eaten any food. Amazing! I am really bored with the drink and the limes have made a big improvement in my will power and attitude and happy taste buds. Just making a different choice seems to pacify my mind. And I really am looking so much better and starting to feel so much better that I just think this is worth all of the sacrifices you have to make. So let’s just pray this day goes well and I can overcome the cravings. I really do want to make it to the finish line!



Day 7 - A Great Day

OK, so I didn’t do the tea or the SWF. But I just could not afford to not sleep and to spend the day in the bathroom. I actually felt pretty darn normal, which hasn’t happened a day yet. I will definitely take the tea tonight but may skip the SWF again tomorrow as I have a ton of family things to do tomorrow and just can not afford to feel bad again. Hopefully that doesn’t count as too big of a setback, but since it’s the weekend, and I still have not cheated by eating any other types of food, I think it’s ok. I did go and by some lemons and limes and must say the limes ROCK! Anything other than the lemons for right now is better for me. The cravings have really been much stronger, though today, so I am on my way to drink 3 more glasses of LA before the end of Day 7. Hard to believe! Just 3 more days and I am definitely looking forward to eating small portions of food, but really believe I will enjoy it so much more, just in moderation. That is the beauty of eating at an All-Inclusive hotel, and I used to think to get your money’s worth you had to eat ALL of it! But now I think a spoonful of a couple things will be fine. I just can’t wait to eat real food again. I MISS IT!



Starting Day 6

Yippee! Just starting down the other side, which feels really positive. I must say the stomach pains at around 4:00 were terribly intense and I had to get up a few times but this morning I feel better. I have to say that was almost scary as I just didn’t know what to do to try to break this terrible seizing in my lower abdomen. So I guess there is still some junk to get rid of…so the fast lives on! Doing the SWF right now so hopefully it won’t be a train wreck like it’s been the last couple of days. Once I got the proportions right it does seem to the trick, many times over!

I hope everyone has a successful and productive day. GO TEAM!



End of Day 5

I was finally able to get out to my son’s Volleyball/Floor Hockey game (very busy night for 1 child) and my pants are much looser and I actually think this was the best day yet. Still a lot of flushing but the period is really the best it’s been in over a year, so maybe that’s a good bi-product to remember as well. If I do this in smaller amounts, maybe that will not only spur weight loss but help if I start getting a cold (prone to them) or anything else that ails me! I don’t think there is anything that would hang on for too long in there with everything that is pushing it out. It’s been an amazing ride, and not that many cravings. My son ate a huge burger and fries in front of me and I didn’t even think about stealing a french fry. Maybe this willpower thing is actually not as hard as we are led to believe!

So hopefully I will have another good night of sleep, too, since I only got up a couple times last night. Only 4 more days and the last 5 did seem to fly by for some reason (although the first 2-3 days were truly horrible). The weekend will be tough, but you know you have to ease back into normal life anyway, so it’s not like you really can just binge away, right? I wonder what would happen if you did…. Not worth undoing all this hard work so I think I’m here for the duration! Thanks, everyone, for being so supportive of everyone. It really does make a difference!



Day 5 and feeling MUCH better

What a difference a day makes! Of course, only getting up once at 4:00pm also helped a ton. I was so out of it yesterday I accidentally used 2 heaping TBSP not tsp of salt so it was almost unbearable to drink and boy, did it have an incredible effect, let me tell you! But I other than my dreams of what choices of food I will make on vacation and how I will try to stick with coconut drinks or citrus things (I’m open to drink requests!) I think this may not be an abuse your body vacation. Why go to all this work just to undo it so quickly, right? I have a lot more respect for my body these days, and what I put into it.

The other thing that is surprising to me is that I really have had no interest in food at all. And I LOVE FOOD! Texture, color, smell, taste, sweet, sour, cheese (my downfall), and yet nothing has really felt like it was pulling me to do the terrible and break the fast. Let’s hope that being half way, the next 5 days go just as smoothly.

Hang in there team, the strength in this board is truly incredible and inspirational. If you lean on us, you should not feel alone and slip. Just keep coming back for more inspirational feeding.



Day 4 - Florescent Yellow? What is up with that!

OK, I only got up 3-4 times after taking the tea last night. I am starting to get exhausted from lack of sleep. But I stuck to my plan (I read the posting about why do the SFW and it made a believer out of me) so I drank the stuff during my 7:30 conf. call and now I’ve gone 4 more times and it is bright yellow! What is that? It’s pure liquid, too, so I do believe the flush is doing it’s job, but not sure why the bright yellow color on day 4. If anyone has an idea, please let me know, ok?

I also have horrible back cramps/pain and started my period so I can tell the next couple of days are just going to be dreadful. I need to wear a diaper all the time! I did read that this seemed to help bad flows so I am hopeful as I had to put off a pelvic ultrasound until my new insurance kicks in. Maybe this will help, or I guess you just don’t notice the leakage since it’s competing with the NEW leakage. And someone else talked about the crud on the eyes and I did have some of that. Hard to see. So I’m just a mess right now. Let’s hope day 4 gets better. I’m still too stubborn to quit, and really have no desire to eat at all (the good news?) but just don’t know what to do to try to improve on things. I’m sipping cold water (no LA until noon) so hopefully the hydration will help. The other good news is this time next week I will lose the water, etc. and really see a big difference. For that, I can get excited!
