I had been expecting the worst - cramping, bloating, possibly even vomiting, but I'm surprised how easy it actually was. Getting the solution down wasn't bad at all (I actually added a tad of lemon juice at someone else's suggestion), and kept imagining it was chicken broth.
Perhaps it would have been tougher had I started Day 1 with a SWF. And maybe it wasn't rough today because after the SM tea twice a day, my systems' somewhat conditioned for it, if that makes any sense.
Nonetheless, I'm pleased that this wasn't the awful experience I was fearing.
