Since around 1/2 PM yesterday, I've had nothing but water. Juice just hasn't exactly interested me. We went to check out the wedding expo today and it was terrifying. We didn't even go in. It was packed, and there were a bunch of girls hovering around where the place where the fashion show was to happen, yikes!
Everyone was there with their moms, the few guys that were dragged there met my finace's eye with a terrified look, he told me. It's all wedding business. What a racket. I wanted to go to win a door prize, but when I saw how packed the lot was, I realized that would never happen.
Yikes. That's all I can say.
Weight loss. Now the underlying reason I'm doing this fast is weight loss. I need to get jump started for the spring of heavy exercise and light eating, so I can look awesome at the wedding in July. I don't have a scale, cause I hate scales. I have to go on how I look and feel. I am going to try to stick to that till the wedding. If I can get in shape that I like by then, that will be good enough for me. I know when I look and feel well. I don't really care what the scale says.
Now as of yet, I haven't noticed much of a difference. I think my tummy is shrinking a bit, but what I'm really looking for is movement on the hips and thighs. I have a total hour glass figure, with a very small waist and thunderous hips and thighs. Child bearing, my fiance says, lovingly. He likes me just as I am, which is awesome.
I just want my wedding pictures to be something I'm totally proud of, for the rest of my life. I don't want to be hiding, or trying to make myself look skinnier by hiking the dress a certain way, or trying to hold in my breath all day. I want to be free and easy and feeling good, with slender, toned arms. I'm not going for twiggy here, I don't have to. But I want to get out of buying clothes that drape just so or whatever. It makes me feel old.
Doing water for 24 hours on the weekend is something I'm going to continue. 1 PM - 1 PM Saturday to Sunday is good, as then I can get some juice in me and not feel totally wiped out Monday morning. I don't feel like I have much energy to exercise when I do the water, and that is something I need to get in the regular habit of doing, so I can continue it after the fast is complete.
My count - from 5 days of pre-cleanse, it's been 6 days after that. I technically started the fast on Tuesday, though I haven't eaten since last Sunday. So I'm thinking, let me get through two more weekends. Then I'll start coming down from the fast slowly on the third weekend. We're planning a trip to see some friends the first weekend of February and I want to be able to eat like one normal thing, mostly salads otherwise. The thought of salad makes me salivate like crazy. That's about all I want - salad and plain brown rice.
1/9 Monday through 1/15 Sunday
1/16 Monday through 1/22 Sunday
1/23 Monday through 1/28 Sunday
and that Sunday I'll add some stewed prunes, and salads the day after that. I really really really can't wait. Not because I'm hungry so much, but because it's really making my life at home awkward.
