I just got a canker sore this evening for the first time in over a decade. I thought I remembered that a poster at some point said something about getting canker sores on the fasts, but don't remember what they said.
Question: Is the canker sore I just got from my fast? What, if anything, does it mean?
I don't know if it is from the fast or not. What are you drinking? Juice? Water? I've gotten a yeast infection before because I my hormones changed. I think drinking lemon water helps. My system became too alkaline. I'm not sure that will be good for your canker sore. Lemon water might hurt.
Just keep flushing it could be from detox. Drink lots and lots of water. I've had sore kidneys before because I didn't drink enough. As soon as I upped the water the pain went away.
Thinking of you this weekend. I have only got 8 days to go. I cannot believe it!!! You can do it!
I'm doing a juice fast. I generally drink 8 glasses of water a day, but I'll try adding more. Yesterday, which was the day I got the cancer sore on my tongue, was also the first day I drank tomatoe juice. Maybe that's what caused it.
You only have 8 more days!!!! Woohoo!
But sad for the rest of us if you leave this forum - I've been using your posts as a sort of fasting life line. :-)
Husband and I went out to run errands and had a good walk. We saw Billy Crudup and Parker Posie, not together, - that was pretty neat! He's extremely tall - like 6'4" or something and he was with his girlfriend who is extremely tall and skinny! She was with this really grungy disgusting looking guy - gross.
On another note, I bought an Acme Juicinator - husband told me it's the best one on the market - so I'm looking forward to being able to juice entire melons, cucumbers, etc at home in a few days - wahoo!
That's it really. Saw myself in a full length mirror today and could totally tell that I had lost weight - yeah!!!!
I'm not leaving the forum. I'll be on everyday when I am transitioning. I will only transition 4-5 days. Then I will start another 10-14 day juice fast.
I'll be doing this scenario through the end of the year. When I finish the fast I should be 165 down from 185. I'm going to continue until I am 125.
I hope you stay around and we'll take it all the way to the end!! I love this site and all the encouragement.
I went for a run today and my legs were tight. Hubby and I worked again on organizing the garage. I am having my garage sale next weekend. While he ate dinner I went for a walk. It really loosened the legs up. It felt good.
I hope that I'll be down a pound tomorrow. I stayed the same this morning.
Tomorrow is Sunday and after church I love a good nap. Nothing like a Sunday after noon nap.
Well, I've learned so much about myself in this past week and a half since I discovered fasting. I do know that I love juice fasting. I love the way it feels and I love the results I've already seen. I am so excited to get my Acme Juicenator in the mail later this week. Until then, I'll have to muddle along.
I did eat today, a couple of times, but I was/am extremely proud of myself in that it was CONSCIOUS eating. I thought about it for quite a while, discussed it with my husband. He asked me a few times that it was really what I wanted to do, and THEN we ate. I think I've really wanted and needed a full day of eating - to put a real break between a pretty successful week of fasting - the first ever in my life - and the next week of more thoughtful fasting. Originally, I just kind of jumped into the fasting on a lark, and I've been having to learn about it all as I've been doing it, which has been a bit scary actually.
I had a talk with my husband this evening after we ate dinner together to let him know that I am back on the fast tomorrow AM and that I appreciate his support, which he has begun to give the more serious about it he sees me be.
So, tomorrow, I'm not going to post "Day 1" again. This time around, I'll post without day numbers for the first three days to keep myself real....I now understand all of the posts that I read about how hard it is to really start and stick with it.
Your doing great! You've got a plan and it sounds like your sticking to it. That is the most important thing. As you continue to fast, transition and fast again I know hubby will be on board. juicing is soooo healthy. Your not starving yourself it's detox, cleansing, weight loss. Toxins are stored in fat so I look at weight loss as not just about looking good but about cleansing.
Day 14 here. I'm really proud of myself for stickng with it. I have 7 more to go!!! I'm anticipating my veggie soup. All in the right time.
