I'm on day 13 of 20+ MC (not sure if I want to go for the whole month because it feels very easy for me...). Started as directed, kept going as directed as well.
Smooth Move at night, SWF (32oz with 2 teaspoons of luke warm water, I can drink this at one sitting with no issues). 6-10 x 8oz LA (1,5 - 2 tablespoons of Maple Valley grade B syrup, Cayenne and fresh squeezed lemon), lots and lots of water throughout the day (Distilled or Smart Water). I haven't cheated not even once or forgotten any daily steps. I move and walk around a lot during the day at work and do some ab and upper body exercises in the evening. I sleep 6-10h nights with not much issues except occasionally waking up to go to bathroom.

I don't know exact start weight but it has to have been over 155lbs (I'm 5'8)... At day 11 I had courage to step on the scale... 150.4... and this morning, 151.4...
I feel bloated in my stomach, abdomen and thigh area. I am not really hungry and have BM every morning about 2-4 times. Passed some solid matter, usually lighter brown and usually accompanied by mucous. SWF makes me go after 45-2h a couple of times every day.

What is going on? I'm not losing weight.... I gained instead.. :( I feel discouraged because one reason for this MC was to lose the blob and give my digestion some rest after repeatedly abusing it for so long. Other than the bloat and weight, I feel good.

Should I get some lab tests done? Should I stop (I don't want to...) or what's going on. This is very frustrating and annoying!!!

Help :(

I'm really sorry to hear of your frustration. It sounds like you're doing a lot right.

Even though you provided a great description/explanation, I think it's hard for us other readers to tell from a written description whether you ought to be losing weight or what's going on.

Just a couple of questions to consider: That's not much lemonade or calories that you're taking in. Are you feeling hungry at all? If you're on that very low number of calories without being hungry, I'd guess there's something out of whack that needs to be addressed separately from a cleanse. If you have been feeling hungry, you need to be drinking more lemonade. Another thought is that you mention weighing yourself but not measuring yourself. Body composition (muscle vs. fat) may be shifting in ways that weight does not reflect. That's why I don't use a scale. A measuring tape or other methods might be a more healthful/accurate way of tracking it.

Those are just a few thoughts. At any rate, I wish you well with your Master Cleanse and health!
