I feel good about losing almost three pounds! This is before SWF, so it will be interesting to see if the salt makes it go up or down initially. In general, salt is an issue for me. I love it and eat way too much of it. I'm sure it accounts for much of my weight a lot of the time.
Did not sleep well at all last night. I wanted to take something or eat something in the middle of the night to knock me out, but didn't do it. I have been using wine to relax me at night for years and this cleanse is making me come face to face with this habit. I imagine that I will suffer a little before that is out of my system. I notice that I have been able to drink more than a couple glasses without a problem lately....so want to nip that in the bud. I quit smoking a year ago, was a social smoker and one that smoked more when times were intense. So, I'm proud of being able to leave that behind permanently. I don't even think about it....except for the weight that I gained. Once this is gone and the toxins are out, I will be very happy!
I have become very aware of how I rely on food and wine when I'm bored or if facing an emotion or situation that I don't feel comfortable with. It's amazing how we medicate ourselves, whether it is healthy food or not. I always eat healthy except for some off days, but I eat too much. I don't eat meat, but can eat my fair share of cheese for sure. I can sit and eat a bowl of popcorn and be happy, but I know it has too much salt and olive oil on it. There are just little things that need to change.
Hi Janshope and Kndred!!!! I'm glad we are doing this together. It really helps to have moral support. Sometimes I just sit here and read every post I can find. It is an interesting human need to need to know we are not alone. And it is phenomenal how much we help each other when we do come together for support. Let's be strong together and get healthy!!!
