Glad you got that new perspective, D. It IS good. And I'm sure the detox or whatever it is will take some time. Maybe even get worse before it gets better. I know those 20's are right around the corner and will stick.

OMG, D. This is great! 2.8 is a fantastic start! At that rate, you'll be in onderland in like 12 weeks!! Just keep focusing on the good parts. You feel better, you are less bloated, you are sleeping better, and you are losing weight.

Thanks for the love ladies!

Amber, you are definitely right..all the ways I'm feeling better is definitely a giant checkmark in the "Pro's" column!

Doing well so far today.. I ended up not eating much dinner last night..I just didn't feel hungry but *had* to have a lil something cause I knew I needed that last dose of OoO before bed.. Noticing more die-off happening so I'm sure the scale is hanging on to everything tightly right now. Sucks rocks, but what can ya do, right? In the plus column in the midst of the die-off however, my ear is completely unplugged and the sinus stuff is completely gone..that weird ick in the back of my throat has totally disappeared. It's been MONTHS dealing with that!

Speakin of the scale.. not a budge either way.
...and clearly, I am in no way gonna make March's goal. Meh.

DD18 is sick and missing her classes today.. DD16 on spring break and off work today.. not sure how this day will play out.. the big one needs to sleep and the other needs busy.... Of course DH will be at work to miss all of it..

OMgosh, I'm soo glad your throat and ears are better. That's gotta be huge! How can you tell there's a die off? Just curious, you can say noneya if you want. You know one thing I'm learning is that whatever way you eat, it has to make you feel well, and if it doesn't then something has to change.

Hahahha ...noneya... I haven't heard that in ages..

Well um, for me I've gotten super super itchy everywhere even my scalp, and things that were issues before like these giant itchy patches of skin that almost look like blisters, at first, totally faded the first few days and are now back, plus some when I upped my dose another pill..thinking about adding another one.. my tummy's been totally cleaned out, not to mention the bloat from hell,.. I've gotten super lethargic at times during the day, mainly after I take the supps, and blurrier (is that even a word? ) vision than my old lady eyes already have...and I've got lil baby acne all over my cheeks..

For me, the payoff in doing this along with lc eating is all of the sinus stuff I had literally since November is finally totally gone.. the ear thing too, thought I was gonna lose my mind.
For months I've felt massive mucus buildup (head,throat,nose,face) that I could not get rid of..
Plus, these dark patches I get on my cheeks have disappeared..



The negatives of this will clear up once my body's purged everything that's not supposed to be there

....aren't ya glad you asked?

Sounds like fun, huh?

Oh boy! Sounds like quite the adventure . But on the upside, you can see and feel that the bad stuff is being dealt with and will soon be outta there. I'm so glad the mucus thing is clearing up. That goes a long way toward how you feel, I'm sure!

Wowza! No I'm not sorry I asked, but my goodness you are experiencing some really crazy symptoms! You are a brave girl, Danielle. I do think it's incredible how much we are affected by what we ingest on a daily basis. Again, really glad you are better...can I send you some clearasil?

It's been a boat load of fun! ..NOT.

I have to keep reminding myself that it's a means to an end and that I have been through worse feeling ways..

I am getting sleepy this afternoon. I'd take a nap but I've gotta head to the grocery store or no one will be eating dinner ..

Kinda half-@$$ed lunch because I wasn't all that hungry but had to take that dang pill.. .. One good thing however is I'm chugging that water like crazy!

The 20's HAVE ARRIVED!

229.4

Down 1 pound.

Last time I saw anything in the 20's was March 1...229.8

Praying like hell that this sticks and keeps going dowwwnnnnn!

Feeling good this morning. Busy afternoon with the kiddos and all their school and work stuff...mom's taxi never gets a break!

DS headed home this weekend! Miss that kid.
I think we're going to a movie tonight, but haven't decided if there's anything I really wanna see .. kinda boring movie-going out there right now.

Anywho, aside from the kids keeping me busy this weekend nothing else planned for me except keeping on track and working on getting to new numbers on the scale.

Thanks LCG & Christine!

Went out to dinner last night. Kept everything lc except the 8 tortilla chips I had. I literally counted out 8. Figured since I was being good about no beer then I'd have the chips Probably too much sodium in the wings and not enough water late in the evening. Meh.

Scale up .4 Please please please do not let it go up any more!
chug chug chug...guess what I'm doing today!

No movie last night..thought about The Host..glad we didn't, DD18 went and said it was just meh..nuthin special.

Overcast and very cool this morning.
It'll ramp up to near 90 today.
