Day 7 here, of my first MC, and no big issues to report. The dark sludge and weight loss keep encouraging me to go on, and I hope to go past the then days.
It's hard for me to drink extra water because I don't feel thirsty most of the time.
I tried for a couple of days doing lax tea both morning and night instead of the a.m. SWF, but the tea makes me crampier and keeps me near the toilet through the day, so I ended up preferring the a.m. SWF, even though it's not pleasant to drink.
I feel fine, a little hungry off and on, but nothing unbearable. My energy level has been reasonably good, although I'd love to feel all that "extra energy" so many have talked about.
At times I really want to not finish my 6 glasses of lemonade, but force myself to each day, because I really want to do this correctly and to best advantage.
The social thing has been a non-issue so far. If I'm going to be away from home for an extended period of time, I make extra lemonade and take it with me.
