MC8 - January 2013 (20 days??)
ATTEND A WEEKEND TO REMEMBER!!
I'm on my second day and am feeling spacey and ungrounded. Not hungry or craving anything at the moment, but mostly just spacey and unable to focus on anything. I was able to get all the SWF down this morning and am enjoying the lemonade. I'm feeling pretty good in general. It's just that I feel like I drank a shot of espresso.
Ok, so it is day 12 for me and I have not weighed myself once. I do plan on doing that on day 15 (once I have been on it for two weeks total) or putting on my jeans to see how they fit.
I don't like weighing myself a lot because I can tell just by looking at my thighs if I am making progress. The first week I didn't look any different, I feel like today I am just starting to see a little difference. For me, when I gain any weight at all it goes right to my thighs. I am very lean naturally and muscular so when I gain any weight it makes my thighs look bulky. Doesn't go to my face or stomach or anything. THIGHS!! So that is the last place I lose it too.
Does anyone else do things like this? I think we all know our bodies and we can see changes without needing the scale. If I don't see much of a change the first week I don't want to depress myself by weighing myself and just confirm it. For me, the weight does not come off until the end of week two. I see all of these posts where people are dropping weight like crazy (a ton of it) within a few days!
I am screaming! But then, I don't have that much to lose (just the weight I put on when I purposely indulged a few days before I started the cleanse. It's amazing how you can gain that within a few days of really eating a lot of bad, fattening stuff. But hey, I did it, got it out of my system and I am working on getting rid of it now!
Anyone have a magic no more crying eyes puffiness cure that I could possibly have in my house? I have a shoot tonight with bunch of rich holier than thous tonight - whom already do a fantastic job making me feel terrible about my existance - and I've spent the entire day crying and look like a mutant.
(I'm hoping I can get my make up on at the very least - but every time I try - and see my swollen eyes - remember why I am so upset - and the whole damn process starts over again! GAH!! I don't have TIME for this!!)
Cleanse the system so that purified mind is forever inspired.
