Hey all,
I'm gonna repost some of my other posts here and then continue to journal.

A little background, I was going to do a 15 to 20 day cleanse. However, during Day 14, I got massive pains overnight and ended the cleanse.


From Day 14 entry 1:
Hey all,
Had a terrible time last night. I only SWF'd once on my 13 day cleanse. Also, have only haphazardly took smooth move tea at night. Not sure if that was the cause but had a BM that I felt nearly killed me. It was so painful, I thought I had to go to the hospital. I didn't and in the end, I'm ok. But man, it was a rough night.

So today is Day 14, my last day. The weekend was a big struggle, wanting to eat comfort food as the rain was coming down in NYC. But I resisted the temptation. And I now feel my body is telling me, NO MORE.

One more day and then I'm done. And the real work begins.

Day 14 entry 2:

So I'm done. Finished today. Had to leave work because of the pain. Got home, had some OJ and water. Better now.

Final stats:

SW:207.1
CW:187.2 (19.9)
GW:180

I plan to get back the horse soon, not sure when. Maybe for a couple of days between Valentine's day (date with Wife) and my 40th Birthday, which is 5 days later. I hope to keep it off. Gonna follow the typical program:
1-Fresh squeeze aka expensive OJ diluted with water
2-OJ and some homemade veggie broth (got it from whole foods website)
3-The Stanley Burrough soup and some salad with fruit. Maybe a green smoothie.
4-Gorge myself, just kidding. Not sure the plan but something from the cooking light website. Keep daily cals under 1800, except I give myself 1 cheat meal a week to eat whatever.

Day 15:
Had OJ and some terrible broth I made the previous night. Veggie broth, recipe from whole foods. Awful. Mostly ate the OJ with water, had the broth and a lot of triscuits. Like a lot. 24 in fact. Ugh. But I read the brown rice triscuits are not processed and I kept my total calories under 1000. Plus I worked out a little. Did my physical therapy exercise, lifted a little and did a bit of cardio. Then came home and cooked my Dr. Burroughs veggie soup. Had a bit of that as well.

I expected that once I eat solids, I will immediately gain weight. But to my surprise, I was down .1. I was very surprised. My goal is to continue to lose weight.

Here is my plan.

1) For six days a week, keep my total calories under 1500 a day. I keep track using the MyFitnessPal app and website. Amazing app.
2) One day a week, for just one meal, I will eat whatever I want. I hope this satisfies any cravings I desire throughout the week. I will work out that day and try to make my net calories under 1500 but that seems unlikely.
3) I will work out 5 to 7 days a week. Workouts consist of physical therapy exercises for my back, weight training and cardio.

So, there you go.

Joe

Gosh, Joe, that's pretty dramatic. I'm glad you ended the cleanse when you did. You still did better than most!

Well done :)

UGH. OK, maybe ugh is more appropriate.

So this is what I ate yesterday (calories to the right) :

Breakfast
Stop & Shop Quick Oats - Oatmeal, 1/2 cup 140
Blueberries - Raw, 0.25 cup 21
Lunch
MC Soup, 1 serving(s) 102
Dinner
MC Soup, 1 serving(s) 102
Generic Bread - Ciabatta Bread, 1 Slice 170
Snacks
Homemade - Fresh Squeezed Orange Juice, 2 cup 234
Triscuit - Brown Rice Triscuit With Sea Salt and Black Pepper, 6 crackers 130
Triscuit - Brown Rice Triscuit With Sea Salt and Black Pepper, 2 crackers 43
Pacific Gold - Original Beef Jerky, Costco, 4 oz 320
TOTAL: 1,262

So maybe the MC cleanse soup, which I didn't add potato or beans, is too low of a calorie estimate. Or the jerky was too low.

I also worked out but didn't do much in terms of cardio.

so I'm not going to stress too much but my weight gain was high. This was the last day of breaking back into regular eating.

Pre Cleanse Starting Weight: 207.1
Post Cleanse Starting Weight: 186.8
CW: 189.8 (+3)
GW: 175

Three pounds, one day. Well I got a long day of working out today. Not gonna stress (eat). Just stay focused and continue to do what I do.

Wish me luck.

Keep at it, maybe drink more fluids, some vegan protein drinks maybe with chia seeds or fine ground oats should fill you up :)

Day 4 Post Cleanse:

2 more lbs up. Ate 1120 calories. Worked out for 45 minutes (-581 cals approx) and still up 2 lbs. There isn't much I can do. I'll just continue to work out, watch my cals and hopefully stabilize before losing more.

Forget about eating what I want for one meal. That is out the window. Just keep cals under 1500 and try my best not to get down.

When I'm hungry b/w meals, I'm going to drink my cleanse drink. That should keep my cravings down.


Here is my summary of food yesterday:

22-Jan-15

Stop & Shop Quick Oats - Oatmeal, 1/2 cup 140
Generic - Pink Grapefuit, 3/5 of (3-3/4" dia) 62

Didn't really count cals on MC. I'm sure it was low as I was only drinking about 3 cups a day.

Day 5 off the 13 day MC:

So good news!!! I had the most calories intake since coming off the cleanse and I lost weight. 1.7 lbs in fact. All I was looking for was leveling off. I lost 20 but gained back 5 in three days. So depressed. I was even working out.

So yesterday, the only difference I made were 1) no beef jerky and 2) had an MC drink mid afternoon bc I was so hungry even after lunch. I also did more cardio last night and voila! I'm feeling good. I think my body is adjusting to me eating regular food now. I'm taking the probiotics daily and it helps alot without any cramps of senna or the excesses of metamucil. Good stuff. Oh, I also ate a brownie....

Here is my food diary:

Thanks cayenne!

So weekends are always hard for dieting. This weekend proved no different. Ate a bunch on Saturday, including my first night out to a restaurant.

I really overate this weekend. Did work out on the elliptical for 45 minutes, in took 2390 calories (at least). Still, gained only 1.5 lbs.

Then yesterday, worked out for any hour, ate just as much and lost .2. Food details are below, if ur interested.

Biggest takeaway this weekend is the my weigh has finally leveled off. From the MC, I lost 20 lbs. Then gained back 5 asap. But now, I'm level. No more crazy weight gains and now its just work. What I mean by that is what I put in, I'll get out. Food, exercise, it's all in my hands. And that feels good.

Stupid snow storm. Stupid De Blasio making me eat sh*tty food at home during the snowpocalype. It didn't even snow that much in the city. Historic, my SWF BM.

Quick entry but I gain a bit for all the crap I ate on Monday and Tuesday. Up nearly 6 lbs from my lowest after MC. Still, feeling ok, worked out last night and hoping I continue strong.

Will post more later.

Joe

Super bowl. Ugh. Gained 5 lbs. But lost 2.2 the next day. Thank God work is so busy I do not have time to eat.

But I make time to work out and I think that is really to way to success for me.

Keep eating 1500 to 1800 calories and do cardio for a minimum of 45 minutes and I should hit my goal.

SPreMCW: 207.1
SPostMCW: 186.8
CW:191.8 (-15.3)
GW:175 (hopefully by 2/19... 40th birthday)

Up and down, up and down. Actually got down to 188.9 before the super bowl.
