Master Cleanse Days 18, 19 & 20

Day 18 – the intense food cravings I was having yesterday are gone today! I’m still having adequate energy and feeling virtually pain free–no back ache, allergies, or aches of any sort. My tongue is about 1/3 pink, starting at the tip.

Day 19 – I read today that the back pain I was experiencing was most likely from toxins moving through my body.  It was good that I had the bath to help draw them out.  I have added a nightly bath to my routine now.  Feeling good today…and I’ve lost the 20 pounds I had hoped to loose!

Day 20 – I’ve done it!  I’ve made it to day 20.  So glad that I have.  I have been really listening to my body and meditating as to what to do next.  Do I continue on?  My decision has been YES!  So here goes another ten day commitment.  I feel like I have nothing to loose at this point and only so much to gain. 

I have said before that I am a large woman–at 240 pounds and 5’9″ one can see that I had some weight to shed.  The 20 pounds that have come off have not changed my pant sizing.  What it has done is thin my face a bit, flatten my stomach a little, and help me to move more easily.  Being so tall it really does take me a good 40 pounds in the beginning to even drop a full size.  The idea of possibly being 200 pounds or less is exciting.  I haven’t been under 200 pounds for over ten years.

I feel as though I have been limiting myself in so many ways, hiding behind my obesity…and I am ready to enjoy and live life to its fullest.  I am grateful for a very supportive family through this process thus far.  It hasn’t been all fun and games, but this journey has given me the self confidence to know I can do anything I put my mind to.  I can do hard things!  You can too!
