I did my first Master-Cleanse last month. I began at 147 too, and after 10 days was at 137.(I'm 5'7") The more you have to lose, the quicker you will lose it. Since I only have 10-15lbs. to lose, it will leave more slowly (not to say that a pound a day is slow!) I am beginning another Master-Cleanse today and am going longer (20 days).
Dont be discouraged! If you read the posts from people who have fasted for 15...20...30 days, you will see that some days they didnt lose at all, and some days they would lose like 2lbs! One post said that when the faster had lost 10 or 15 pounds, her weight loss leveled off even though she continued the fast. Your body will lose what it needs to, and then hold on for dear life to what you dont need to lose. I am curious to see what my weight loss is this time around.I have decided that I am not going to weigh in as religously as I did the first time, because on the days that I didnt lose as much as I was expecting, I would become discouraged and not want to continue. This time I will continue no matter what! I will keep you posted!
