I'm down another half pound. Last two days have been difficult, as I haven't gone to the bathroom since the beginning of the week. So I had a salad last night with balsalmic vinegar on it, in order to get things "moving" again. I really needed that. Because yesterday I didn't lose anything (and in all honesty, gained .2 lbs, so...) But I ended up going a little bit last night and that made me feel better and a little less bloated. I am bloated this morning too, but at least I am losing again. So I am officially down 17 lbs since March 1. I will take it. :)
Decided I will do this for 2 weeks instead of 1. I can do it. Its hard, yes, but I can do it. If you are going to take this one, the best way is to do it with a friend. It makes it so much easier. I don't think I could do this without my friend, who's doing it with me.
Made 68 ounces of juice last night for today's long work day. I am going to just keep on sticking to it and see where it gets me. Current issues: skin is dry, lips are bumpy (like sand?) and hair is dry... I haven't had these symptoms all winter, so not sure which type of mineral I am low in. I have been craving salt and protein. ESPECIALLY yesterday. It was a hard day, for sure, especially yesterday afternoon. I was ready to just eat anything salty or with protein. Very weird.
Tonight my tummy was hurting VERY badly. I would attribute it to the fact that I just couldn't go to the bathroom. Haven't been all week. Ok a tiny tiny bit last night after eating a salad for some roughage. So my fasting friend and hubby both recommended I drink some coffee. (EW! I HATE COFFEE). It was soooo gross. But I downed 2 cups, fighting all the way. And one hour later I had water coming out... no joke and since I am blogging everything just for me to remember, it smelled exactly like the juice I have been drinking. So I know there was just a backup of juice.. somehow. I am not sure how that all works. BUT I did get to go finally. My stomach feels really yucky after the coffee.... gonna be a long night. But I am so glad I finally got to go this week.
