The scale has been good to me - 3.4lb gone since yesterday. So I'm happy, but cautious. I'm making sure I'm drinking enough, counting the ounces of water.
The brain fog of days 1 and 2 was awful, today is much better. Not great, but better. The hunger pangs are minimal - they're there, but it's not the "I'm gonna starve to death, my stomach hurts" pain like on day 1.
I do need to figure out more exciting juice recipes, otherwise I'll die of boredom instead of hunger. I feel good enough to make home made marshmallows with my dd (she has food allergies, can't have store bought). Yet not good enough to go with the family to Pizza Hut tonight. I refuse to sit around the table with everyone stuffing their face with pizza, while I'm drinking water or juice. I'm not strong enough for that, so I won't put myself in that position. I know the marshmallow baking will be hard too, but let's be honest - I'll do anything for my daughter. She shouldn't suffer, because I'm on a juice fast. Not that living without marshmallows is suffering, but it's hard to be the kid who can't have most of store bought candies, deserts and ice creams. So we bake a lot of stuff on our own. There are still 3 things we need to do - marshmallows, pop tarts and ice pops. Yeah, this juice fast is not a challenge at all
