Day 27 – today was so hard to me. My son graduated from high school so I was a little emotional anyway. But what was difficult was watching everyone have dinner, they all enjoyed some of my favorite food from a local restraunt. I was very close to digging in myself. But I knew I would end up sick–I can’t start eating regular food after 27 days. Furthermore I remembered something I read a while back. If you are really wanting specific food and think you might go off then consider going off with the orange juice or vegetable soup. If those things don’t sound good then it is only a food craving and you really aren’t hungry. This was the exact case for me. So I am still on for now. Coming off on day 30 is beginning to sound better and better.
Day 28 – Today was easier than yesterday. I have officially lost 28 pounds in 28 days! I have been researching different diets to see how and what I will be eating when I come off the cleanse. What I have realized is that I would like to keep my diet as clean (raw) as possible–at least for a month or two during the summer. You see, even if I loose 40 pounds in 40 days (if I go the distance). I will still have 40-50 more pounds to loose before I am a normal healthy weight. My tongue indicates that I am still only 1/3 of the way done cleansing, even after 28 days. This being said it would take me 100 days cleansing to clear all of the toxins stored in my fat cells. I truly believe this is why my tongue is still so white. By going Vegan and as Raw in my diet as possible (I haven’t decided the percentage yet), I will continue to cleanse, but at a much slower rate. Not only that but I am excited to try new foods and new ways of cooking healthy. Because of my loss of motivation the past few days I am excited for some of my followers to help me go the distance–to make it for a full 40 days–as they will be doing the last ten days of my cleanse with me! Thank you and please leave comments about your personal journey!
Day 29 – it’s Fathers Day today! I am grateful to have a father who brought me up with love and caring. Furthermore I couldn’t ask for a better husband or father to my children. I am especially lucky to know that I am a Child of God who loves me dearly. He blesses me each and every day in so many ways. I am ever so grateful for Him and that he is only a prayer away.
My cleanse went well today. We kept busy with Fathers Day festivities and it wasn’t hard at all. Tomorrow is day 30. I can hardly believe I’ve made it this far!
