the end of the cleanse
so i cheated for lunch.
i also cheated again with a cup of soup on friday
and an omelet on saturday
and every time i ate i felt soooo soooo sick. my body had started to hate food and that scared me. so i've gradually started re-introducing foods back into the diet because i don't want to feel sick all wedding weekend when i know i'll be eating several meals in a day (something i can barely imagine at this point).
i've lost some weight but nothing drastic. it was just enough to make me not regret that i've spent the last week drinking nothing but lemonade.
the times i ate over the last week and some, i didn't eat because i was hungry. i ate because i was in a social situation where i couldn't necessarily get away with sitting there eating nothing. rather, i could have, but it would have made me uncomfortable.
the less i ate, the less hungry i was to the point where i didn't even miss food. really strange.
as for the cleansing part of it, i messed all that up with every crumb of anything i put into my body. you don't want me to get into details, but for the most part, i'm pretty certain my colon was being flushed out.
in all, not a bad week. it would be ideal to do over a week where everyone you know is out of town so that you won't have to leave your house for the ballet, or the art gallery opening, or the broadway show, or the movie theatre where the popcorn smells better than anything you've ever smelled in your life, or any other social event that might later involve eating or drinking...
