Halfway Mark

In a little less than four hours, I will be at the halfway mark of my cleanse. I'm feeling great...a lot better than I thought I would be!

I weighed in today (this was a day that I actually planned to in advance) and I lost two pounds from yesterday! So excited. Now I'm at 188.5, which is a milestone for me because (a) I broke the 190s, and (b) I'm pretty much exactly where I was 10 years ago, when I was at my lowest weight since my pre-teen years.

Today is Day 11, and it's supposed to be the toughest day of the cleanse, because I had to give up juice. All I can do is water until midnight. To me it's not that tough, because I'm seeing some crazy results! Also, from now on it will get easier, because instead of me giving up different foods, I get to slowly bring them back in.

I'm a little nervous about bringing food back in because I don't want my progress to stop. However, I know I have to get this negative thinking out of my mind...I don't want to fall back into old patterns.

23.5 pounds to go to my first goal. Sorry I'm not that chatty today. I'll be back later, or tomorrow, when I think of more to say :-D


  1. Doesn't it stink that it's so much harder (and less fun!) to lose weight than to gain it?

    What helped me a lot was to keep reminding myself that this drastic diet season is ONLY a season and one day (soon!) the time will come when a splurge can be allowed and it won't hurt the progress (or maintenance).

    It is SO worth it to have more energy and be able to look in the mirror and LIKE the view. AND be allowed to splurge every now and then too.

    Be encouraged!

  2. Lol exactly! Thanks for the encouragement and tips. This is REALLY helping, especially today on the water-only part of the cleanse. 10 days to go before my splurge! Haha. Keep it up.
