This was the Last.
This was my dinner smoothie. I was happy to end it on a good night, Balance Complete with Ningxia Red, almond milk, spinach and a banana. I'm glad it's done. I had a friend tell me, she did this Cleanse some time ago.
I hadn't lost any weight this morning. I wonder if my body got mad because I forgot to eat (drink) dinner last night. I hope it's not Starvation mode. Though Eric and I were talking about it over breakfast, he's lost 4 pounds. I lost 3, if you don't consider how bloated I was from the weekend weight, otherwise, I'll consider it 5. Somewhere in there, I guess. I hope the weight stays off.
I'm worried if I'm going to bloat and blow up again when I start eating real food tomorrow.
I feel more clearheaded. I see my anklebones, which had been disappearing for years.
According to the paperwork, this cleanse should be done 4 times a year. I don't think I could do that. But I could see doing it again sometime. It'll be a while though, I currently can't do anymore Balance Complete. If I do get a wild hair and try to drink a shake tomorrow, it will be Pure Protein Chocolate! I don't think I want to move into a new diet/lifestyle, like the Whole 30 or something.
Frankly, I'd be happy if I could just stop craving deep fried meat, or sugar glutens with dairy. My body is no longer craving cookies every two hours, which basically was my goal. I feel better about that. Instead of craving sugar to the point I feel like I've got the shakes, I just want Everything. I have been successful at watching others eat around me, and not join them. I'm Still craving pickles, I'm telling you, pickles will be Lunch tomorrow! I think I broke my coffee craving. That's good, because I was drinking a lot of coffee flavored sugar milk. Tomorrow, I might venture into adding honey to my tea. It's been getting a little boring. I want to go slowly, gently, so I can be wise. I don't know. We're supposed to have a Birthday dinner with my Dad tomorrow, not sure how Wise I can be.
