Things are going fairly well. I feel better, that sausage feeling is going away. My face isn't so swollen in the mornings. Still haven't started the SWF. Now it's my own hang up, I really hate drinking that salty water. I find a cup of Get Regular to be easier to down, but I know that the SWF would provide a much better cleanse. I'll get to it. I rarely weigh myself, because I more concerned about how my clothes fit than what the scale says on a daily basis. The scale that we have at home is old and always a couple of pounds off of what the doctor's scale is, but that's ok I have a general idea of how much I weigh. About two days ago I checked and I'd lost about 5lbs. I'll probably wait until I'm done with the fast to check again.
The craving for food has gone. It's not so hard to watch people eat. My son offered me some french fries yesterday and I said they smelled good , but no thank you. I do have to remind myself why I'm doing this. A friend who did the MC years ago told me that the best thing that happened to her was the clarity that came to her after being on it for awhile. She did 18 days and stopped becuase she was losing too much weight. I remember reading somewhere the stages that your body would go through over certian period of time on the MC. I'll have to try and find that article or blog. I'm doing this in search of mental clarity. The weight loss would be a bonus, but I'm hoping the cleanse will help clear out this mind fog. I think that means at least around a 21 day fast. We'll see.
I'm having one issue. My tongue is killing me. It feels like I bit it and in one spot every time I drink the lemonade it seems to aggravate it. This morning I did an oil pull. I stumbled across that remedy on the cure zone boards last year when I bit my cheek and it wouldn't heal. Now whenever I have a mouth sore that wont heal I do the oil pulling. One day I will intergrate it into my daily hygiene routine. Hopefully a few days of the oil pulling will take care of my tongue too.
My period started yesterday. I don't know if it's the fasting but the cramps have been minimal. I still get the intestinal cramping from the tea, but significant menstural cramps. I did have a couple of days of bad lower back pain, but that's typical for me too. I need to see a chiropractor.
That's about it, still plodding away one day at a time.
