OK... here's what I did. I've been doing really well on the fruit & veggie juices and could really tell a difference in my body's appearance. I was horribly lethargic and that effected by day and evenings since I work in a busy office and have 2 boys at home. I'm getting ready to start my period anyday now so that didn't help either. I wanted to have the comfort of food.
Anyway... yesterday, I gave in and ate a small breakfast, lunch AND dinner. OMG... I've never felt so horrible in my life. Not that I had headaches or anything but the sensation of being full was almost physically sickening. How in the world did I do it before. It's no wonder I'm fat!!!
So this morning, I'm up.. had my juice, had my cup of coffee (black)... bought some quickie V8 veggie juice at the store so I'd have some at lunch. I FEEL GREAT TODAY!! I don't consider this as cheating or falling off the wagon. I consider this another milestone in my change of eating lifestyle. After eating those things I've been craving ... you know what... it's not that big of a deal. They didn't do as much for me as I thought they would. So I'm sure, in the future, when that craving hits for Chinese or cereal ... I'm going to realize that it's really not worth it. Sure, a bit of something here and there won't kill me or stop the gravitational pull of the earth but 3 meals a day... just isn't for me anymore.
So here I am on day 12. Juice fasted for ~10 days and felt good. Ate food for 1.5 and felt awful.... hhmm... let me think.. how do I want to feel?? JUICES RULE
