I am so happy this morning! I almost gave up last night! I fought myself away from my cravings. I wanted some hummus and pita so bad when I was watching tv last night. SO BAD! But I didn't give in! I kept it up. I thought I was just depressed. Having gone to Dinsey and seeing everyone eating all around me - it made me feel down. And of course, that bad weigh in didn't help. I think now that I must have been having a healing/detox crisis. Because I ended the night with a splitting headache, a neck ache, joint pain, depressed mood, anxiety, and more.
I woke this morning feeling so much better. I decided to check my weight again, just to see where I was at vs the terrible reading yesterday. It was risky. If I hadn't seen some sort of loss, I would have been very discouraged, maybe even would have given up. I almost didn't get on the scale. But since it was last Monday that I started this journey, it seemed fitting to check in. And I was way down!!! I was 142.5! That is a loss of 6.5 pounds from last Monday, 4.5 from yesterday alone! No wonder I felt so bad yesterday! My body must have been doing some serious work. I feel so relieved. This puts me on target for the weight loss goal I was hoping for for this fast. I really want to get into the 130s, because I haven't been there for a few years! I think, if I have another good week, by next monday when I weigh in again - it might be! That would be huge for me.
Now - juice details - this am was tangerine, carrot, and a quater of a canteloupe. I have the day off, so I can take care of some things. I'll do so laundry, but I'm also going to see if I can hit the pool and get some sun. It is going to be 89 here today! I'm still craving sun, too.
Glad I made it though my first fasting crisis, and I'm really recommitted to this now!
