THE RESULTS!

In 60 days: 35.2 pounds lost. 5″ gone from hips and belly, 4″ from my waist and 3.5″ from my chest! So, wow! I exceeded my goals in terms of size, but I ended a little heavier than I had hoped, but actually since I’m smaller that just means I have more muscle! This was the quickest and most enjoyable way of losing weight I’ve ever tried, and I’m actually looking forward to my next 30 day cleanse later this year (probably mid August or September). My ultimate goals are within reach! Now I just need to maintain my results. 🙂

07/04/2014 – Day 60! Last Day of this cleanse!

So, I tried posting yesterday and the day before with no success after the big update. So today I’m using my slightly newer PC laptop instead of my elderly Macintosh with hopes that this post will stick!

You may have noticed that my weight is now 163. Woohoo! It may be because I had an avocado last night instead of a third drink because I got home too late, or because I weighed myself later in the day than usual today (thank you, Baby, for sleeping in!), but wha-ev-ah I’ll take it!

Feeling really good about eating solid foods tomorrow, but MAN do I want to eat now too! Just a few more hours really. And I’ll post all my results tomorrow. 🙂

I am zen about my weight!

Hello! I have decided that my results are spectacular and that my body may have leveled out and I have accepted it! …And I almost fit into my size 10 work pants! Almost. I’m pretty sure if I don’t get really bloated when getting off the cleanse I will fit into them in a matter of weeks. My goal is to maintain the 30+ pound loss for a month or so, then go on another 30 day cleanse! I’ve reached a point where I feel so wonderful that keeping my health optimal outweighs excuses. So I’ll continue to eat healthfully, with room for some less optimal choices (Papadeaux, Red Lobster, Olive Garden… oh, those commercials…)(and I also have Burger King and Sweet Tomatoes coupons taped to my kitchen cupboards…) I’ve completely hit my goal for this cleanse in terms of size. I was hoping to end is size 12s, and the fact that I can foresee fitting into 10s so soon is just gravy!

My husband and I love to eat out. LOVE IT. We have spent a good amount on meals because we love to eat. And omigod Cow Appreciation Day is so close! We will feast on Chic-Fil-A! This year I’m making my Cowstume the best yet.

Lol… the Photoshop filter I use is called box blur…

Today was a challenge. There was a team building exercise at work today (bowling, super fun!) and I was surrounded by free food. And free food is my weakness. BUT since there are only four days left, I just drank a LOT of water! AND OMG LOOK AT THE AWARD I WON:

Feels good to be recognized for my achievements. And really, it was so easy. Just blend, drink, repeat. OTHER GOOD NEWS! I have figured out how to use the puffy vanilla protein powder! I tried stirring it in, which wasn’t bad, but tomorrow I’m going to shake it. I had my new favorite drink tonight: Chocolate Cherry. I will have to get some chocolate protein powder!

Not enough water again!

We were out and about today so I probably didn’t drink enough water. I know I’ll be on track Monday-Friday this week, and then SATURDAY I EAT AGAIN! I’m super excited about it. Ugh, my friend came over tonight and she’s wanting to start the cleanse soon, so I was showing her how to blend the drink, and tonight I decided to get fancy and we poured out the first portion because it got all puffy, and it was good, but then I added a whole lemon and a big ol’ hunk a ginger, and it was waaaay too much… she said that she liked it, which I believe, but I also know a good drink, and this one fell a bit short of the mark. But it is all a learning process! I blame the protein powder! It has changed the texture of my drinks and has taken a bit of adjustment to get used to, and tonight, well… I’ve made better drinks. Anyway, off to bed with me and the baby. I’ll check in tomorrow!

As I suspected…

Not drinking enough water again! Don’t think I drank enough today either, and I had 1.5 avocados. I’m going to skip my third drink today since it is late. Tomorrow I will make more of an effort to drink 5 bottles. I’ve been tired lately, so I’ve been taking it a little more easy on myself. I took a two hour nap with the baby. I love weekends! I’m also getting more and more excited about eating solid foods! My husband and I are thinking up meals we can have weekly. I have a freaky love for bangers and mash, so that is in the rotation. Mmm!

Woo! Down another .8!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Today was nice! I had the day off. But the baby got up two hours earlier than usual, so I waited to weigh myself until around 8:30 and drank no water so it would be as accurate as possible. And I’m now under 165. I celebrated with an avocado, which was amazing. The rest of the day was busy with errands, and I’m behind on my water consumption, so I won’t be surprised if I gain tomorrow morning. I’m so pleased with my results that it is okay if I don’t lose anything more in the remaining 8 days. I know I’m doing my best, and my body feels great. The few times that I’ve felt detoxification symptoms haven’t been very long and generally I feel amazing. I’m already planning my next cleanse! It was never like that on any other diet I used to try! Oh, btw, made a bunch of Strawberry Lemonade (sweetened with liquid stevia) in my Vitamix today. I put it into juice containers in the fridge. I don’t think it will last long with my husband around though. 🙂
