My meeting is tomorrow so I've decided to start the orange juice today and abort the cleanse. I really only finished three days so the transition won't be too bad. At least this meeting didn't come along when I was on Day 20 or something. That would have really sucked.
I may be back to start another Day 1 soon, depending on what's going on. The 21st may be a better date for me to start again.
Good luck to everyone with your cleanses! Make sure you ease out if you are planning to stop. Don't cheat!

Lets see what tomorrow has in store for me., day 4 here I come!
Day two almost in the books and wasn't too bad today. Had a couple minor cravings and what seems to be a mild headache a few times during the entire day but I am good right now. I have been contemplating about doing some cardio but I think I may wait it out till tomorrow or over the weekend to see if I get the rejuvenated energy everyone is talking about.
I am focused and on track!
GL to everyone and keep it up!
I am on day 4 - so I hope the worst is over. The last couple of days I have been thinking about quitting every day - especially in the evenings. Right now I am at my bf's and I hate that I can't have meals with him, because he is very busy right now and lunch and dinner breaks are basically the only time we can spend together. I hope now that I am on day 4 it will be easier for me to accompany him to a restaurant and watch him eating
This morning I felt really ill after the SWF - dizzy and as if my head was wrapped in plastic. I also had a very strange but light headache. I think it might be due to too much salt in the SWF. I used to use 2 tbsps or 1 Tbsp but it never worked for me. Two days ago I found out (by accident ) that a little more than one Tbsp works just fine. I think, today I had a little more than a little more so I attribute my illness to that. I feel much better now. Has anyone ever experienced something like that?
I thought about quitting after five days but right now I think I might go all the way (lets talk again tonight ). Please back me up here!
I'm on day 2. Yesterday was fine until last night, I REALLY wanted to eat something. Instead, I drank 2 servings of lemonade, watched an inspirational movie followed by my tea and went to bed. Last night I dreamed that I accidentally ate food, I was relieved to wake up and realize it was a dream. I hope this is just a sign that I'm craving what's being released from my body!
Good Morning Fellow Lemonheads!!
This is day 10 for me and I'm planning on going for another 6 days. I have lost 8 pounds so far and hope to lose another 5 or 6. This is my 15th cleanse that I have documented and for me it gets easier each cleanse. Hope everyone has a great day today and remember to drink at least 6 glasses of the lemonade drink each day.
What brand of salt do you use? Different salts will have vastly different tastes. You should be using sea salt and the one I use is called "Celtic Grey Sea Minerals" and I use the "Fine"; I find this salt has a mellow taste and not a harsh taste like some salts. I get this salt at the health food store. Think of the SWF as drinking chicken soup without the chicken!! You have the right mental attitude I am sure you will have no problems reaching your goal and receiving the benefits of The Master Cleanse.
Feeling dizzy at times is very normal, your body is expelling a lot of toxins and that release can make you feel a little dizzy. The proper amount of sea salt is 2 teaspoons in one quart of water not 2 tablespoons, but what ever works for you is ok. Please don't quit!!! To get maximum benefit you must say on for a minimum of 10 days....you can do it, your are over the worst so sick with it!!!!

Day 5! Headache the last 1/2 of yesterday but with morning came no pain. Off to have lemonade and enjoy my day! 3rd cleanse definitely easier to do than 1st was. Still really struggling with swf and now just trying tea at morning and night. Got two baby showers in the next two days (for other people) so I will see lots of treats but don't worry, I will hold strong and true to myself. Woke yesterday morning with a pain in my sternum and it's still there today, anyone else ever have that?
I am on day three today and I am feeling great. I still have not really had any detox symptoms. I did thirty minutes on an eliptical last night and I my chest would hurt when I would take a deep breath. It stopped once I stoped working out, I don't know if that was a symptom because I worked out just fine on day one and had no problem. Have a good day everyone
Day 1. SWF was extremely difficult with 32 oz, but I made it. However, no activity after 4 hours. I was very careful with my measurements and lax tea last evening. Is this normal?
