So I am done with my cleanse!
I lost between 8 and 9 lbs (scale said 8 this morning but I was weighing in at a different time than last time).
I lost about 11 inches overall.
To be honest the process really sucked.
The cleanse days I felt like shit. Saturday and Sunday were my last two cleanse days and I feel bad today even though I'm done with the program and ate breakfast already. I feel weak, shaky and have stomach troubles.
I will say that days 3 through 7 weren't that bad with the shakes and one normal meal. In fact, I was probably around my WW daily points those days as the shakes were 6 points each.
I did this cleanse as more of a quick fix before my trip. I achieved what I wanted because my dress fits me now. Most my other close are loser now too!
I started the cleanse at 178.6 and this morning my scale said 170.6. So being that most of what I lost was in my torso I'd say it's safe to say I went down about a size.
I am hoping to keep this weight off but have to be good on my vacation. I don't want to gain it back after that hellish 11 days (including pre-cleanse days) so that motivates me.
Would I recommend this to a friend? Not really. It wasn't fun at all. Then again, it wasn't the worst thing in the world.
If you know me, you know these fad-type cleanse/diets aren't my thing at all. I felt like I needed to do something drastic though.
In the end it shocked me how strict I was and how well I stuck to this cleanse. It made me realize I have it in me to stay on program and stay within points for WW. This cleanse also made me really evaluate my hunger signals. When I thought I was hungry before I was wrong! I think it will help me in the future.
Off to NYC on Thursday! :D
p.s. Learned the new Pro Points system on Saturday. I start today! I'll report on it later!
