Thanks for the info, JudahFirst. I will definately try the SWF (Salt-Water-Flush) and see how that works. If it's not great, then I will do the Smooth Move tea- I know that works on me. You cleared up one of my main questions.
As far as taking it past the minimum, I fully understand what you are saying as far as setting a goal. I know that when at your lowest, you tend to want to give up more readily, because it is so easy. I've always been a trooper, but I will read up and consider what I feel is a good point for me. I am reading pepe's Detox stages post, and it's funny that it mentions a broken arm in stage 3, because I had one about 12 years ago, and at the time, my diet was horrible. In summation it says that old injuries may resume healing, which I think is great! I have had problems with that arm ever since, and would be ecstatic if I could finish up the healing.
The biggest reason for re-evaluating on day 5 is that I need to work the next day, and if I am incompasitated, there may be a problem. After reading both of your posts, I realize that I was basing my timeline on the reports of many people who had stopped before even the minimum with good results. I see now that to obtain optimum results, I need to take it even farther, to make it a journey, not just an experiment. This is a good thing- to know what I am up against! I know how to motivate myself when down, based on years of successful sales experience.
