Much to my amazement, I made it through the 10 day master cleanse without fail. I lost 12 pounds in that 10 days and my stomach is flatter than it has been in a long long time. My pants are practically falling off of me.
I'm easing my way back into food. Fresh squeezed orange juice yesterday and today with veggie soup tonight for dinner. I cannot believe how excited I am about having vegetable soup! Tomorrow it is juice for breakfast with a bowl of leftover soup for lunch and a salad for dinner. No crackers with my soup, no blue cheese with my salad. I have to keep it to vegetables and fruits for 10 days following the cleanse. I'm still losing weight, another pound was gone this morning, that makes 13!
All in all, I'm very very happy with the way things went and I'm planning on following a schedule of a 10 day cleanse every 10 weeks. My next one will start on March 13th. I'm hoping the initial reaction will not be quite as bad as it was this time as I'm not going to be stuffing myself with crap. I've worked too hard to get it out. I really feel like my body is back to working the way it should and I want to keep it up.
