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!
