Day 25

Wow. Only six more days to go...

Yesterday was interesting. I worked all day and then had dinner at my brother & sister-in-law’s house. They had lamb and I had my broth. I have a wonderful supportive family. We all struggle with our weight and never judge anyone’s diet plans. I love that about my family.  I decided not to drink my juice because of the tummy troubles I have been having lately. Throughout the day I was visiting the toilet to eliminate. I also took the advice of Lilly & Gigi to do a chamomile tea enema. Had a lot of trouble holding it in but was able to do so for a few minutes. Woke up this morning and headed straight for the bathroom again. My body seems to be dumping out everything and I feel better. I still don't want juice. And even the broth last night went right through me. My stomach gurgled throughout our competitive board games. We play to win! Ha..but it’s fun.

I’m really glad I have made it this far on the fast. The benefits have far outweighed the struggles. I don’t know why anyone would call this a quick fix plan. This has been and is hard work. I think it’s a wonderful start to saying “no” to myself and learning some discipline.  Each day that I wake up and decide to continue, each time I see something tempting to eat and say, “no” my confidence and self esteem rises.  Each day the clothes are looser. It’s a wonderful feeling. 

Also, up until very recently, I would lie awake at night in the quiet before drifting off to sleep and think about food.  I would think about what I craved: a cheeseburger being at the top of the list. Anyway, I enjoyed thinking of these foods that I take pleasure in. But was also disturbed by it because I thought, shouldn’t I be wanting more healthy options? How will I fare after this fast? Because for me fasting is not a tool I want to use for binging and then purging (fasting after I eat cheeseburgers for three days). That’s not healthy and abusive to my body.  The whole point of fasting for me is to get a healthy mindset about food and giving my body fuel to live on. No more gluttony. During this past week the food thoughts have tapered down. A cheeseburger still sounds good and always will because it’s my favorite food (currently). However, I have also been heavily thinking about what plan to choose when breaking the fast. That will be the most important decision I will make. Atkins? No way. Been there. Done that.  Eating to Live, McDougall, Fat Flush, Fat Smash? There are so many options and it can get confusing. A lot of fruits and veggies appeals to me with small amounts of lean protein and brown rice. That sounds like a good reasonable plan to me. I want to pick something I can live by and not a “diet” to go on and off of. I’m tired of that roller coaster ride.

Thanks Lilly & Gigi for the tips yesterday on my tummy. I am so glad I found Curezone and the wonderful people that are here. You have truly been supportive and your feedback is greatly appreciated.
