I suggest you lose the scale. Don't weigh yourself at all. Just notice that some of your clothes fit better and that it is easier to move around. Also have you tried the salt water flush? That will really clean you out if done correctly. Use unrefined Sea Salt . Real Salt is a good choice and can be found in most health food stores. Mix 2 teaspoons of unrefined Sea Salt in 1 quart of warm water and drink it down. Kinda nasty but what the hell. You won't have normal BMs. As the name suggests you wil get a flush of water. When I do The Master Cleanse all I ever have is the infamous "pee butt" effect.
