Yeast Cleanse Month 2
Monday, September 23, 2013
I haven't taken my measurements again, but I can at least report my weight change and how I feel.
I've stopped tracking my food, and am getting much better at listening to my body and not over-eating. I'm still working on the only eating when I'm hungry thing, but I've definitely improved. Not having wheat or sugar seems to have helped a LOT with being able to listen to my body - like when I have those things they mess up the communication between my brain and my stomach. And now that I'm not having too much of those (for the most part) I'm better able to really have just a little bit of something - which I couldn't do before.
Anyway, I started month 2 of the CandaClear4 at 177.1 and today I weighed in at 173.1 - 4 pounds in 30 days is pretty good! I ate a lot more wheat this month, but still not as much as I used to. I'm finding that safe and healthy balance between depriving myself and having too much. :) I also had a planned splurge last week for my birthday and am now back to what I should be eating. Overall, I'm feeling better and seem to be finding that healthy balance, and more importantly, finding things I can keep doing with less effort - a healthystyle I can maintain! I still need to walk more, but I have pulled my average daily steps up from 3000 to 4000. And on days when I'm actually working on it, I'm even getting in 5000. It's not the 10000 it should be, but it's still improvement so I'll go with it. I got over 5000 18 out of the last 30 days (which is up by 7 days from last month) and two of those were over 10000.
My osteopath wants me to keep taking the CandaClear4 (and stay with the no sugar/low wheat eating plan) for another 2 months and see if my system will regulate at this new healthy and balanced place. Since this is all working for me, I'm fine with that and have started Month 3 today and aim to be down to 168 by the end of it. I also aim to have even more days above 5000 steps and above 10000 steps.
Progress feels good!
