Will Power!

I DO NOT have the WILL POWER to do something that is consuming my every thought and making me do crazy things! I seriously don't know what I was thinking when I started this cleanse. I was so excited about it and knew that I could get through 10 days. Yesterday was great...I did just fine. Today I was craving solid food and gagging as I drank the "lemonade". I still felt fine but I got to the point where I wanted solids so bad that I would chew on something just so I could taste it and then spit it out. I know it's crazy but that is how I felt today....crazy! This is all that I could think about all day. I had to leave a playgroup because I wasn't feeling good. Anyway, I called my doctor this afternoon and I asked him what he thought of this cleanse...I didn't want to quit just because! I talked to my doctors nurse and she told me that I am starving myself and I shouldn't do it. So I am not doing it anymore. It sucks because I was so excited to accomplish something like this but I guess I will just have to eat!! I feel better now. Our bodies are made to withstand healthy eating and we shouldn't have to cleanse ourselves 4 times a year!! I'm laughing at myself for being so excited about this! Oh well...I did it, I stopped, and I feel great! Now you can really tell me what you thought when you found out I was doing this!!

I watched a study on those and watched all of these poor suckers suffer like you did and then they ran all of these labs on them and found nothing different.........keep in mind many of these people drank quite a bit and there was no change in their liver functions etc..... but they did say that a short (2 day ) cleanse was good to jump start a healthy diet. Our bodies are very efficient machines and should keep themselves clean.........part of the function of a few different organs............so skip the weird lemonade and go to stick-em-up....
At least you care about your body though.......I tried the Atkins diet once and thought I would die.

I'm glad that you stopped!!!! :) Don't feel bad that you quit either! Starvation, and will power are two completely different things!! You made a good choice. :)

Haha, I don't know why but I am just laughing because you called your doctor. That is not bad thing it is just too funny. You make me laugh. Well I am glad because now you can eat with me when we go to lunch. I don't think you are a quitter either, I think you did something I would have done after the first day. Plus you lasted until it wasn't healthy for you. Awesome!!!

Not that you asked but I agree with April. Our bodies can be very efficent if we treat them right. Instead of cleanses and weird fad diets we should concentrate on eating better (lots of veggies and what not) and exercise. What we SHOULD do is keep an exercise log together and make fun of each other if we don't do it =D. Not sure if Im ready to start eating right and exercising daily though....as I sit here and drink coffee loaded with sugar......sigh....

April must have watched the same oprah I did. Funny! I used to hardly ever eat when I was younger (hence the boniness), I ate to live. Now I live to EAT! I know if I tried anything like this, thoughts of food would totally consume my thoughts!

Seriously? What I thought was "I'm gonna try it if it makes a difference for Nichole." I could use some extra energy. But really it makes sense that you are probably starving yourself more than anything.

those cleanses are not good for you. My friend at work peed her pants on it. and it was neon yellow. literally.
