Day 6: It is the end of day six on the 7 Lbs in 7 Days juice fast that my husband and I have embarked on this last week. One more day and we get to chew a meal! Woo hoo! I can't wait!
Today was actually a pretty good day. Work had me busy for most of it, my husband and I worked out in the yard afterwards, and then we watched Cinderella Man (oh, how I love that movie!) in the evening. It probably also helped that two of the juices today had a bit of plain yogurt in them. But, overall, it didn't feel too hard today.
Even so, one consistent factor has remained throughout this entire journey: No matter how great we feel, we can't wait to eat! Seriously, I think my taste buds and my sense of smell have heightened. I'm very in tuned with the smells of food around me wherever I go.
I think this fast has actually helped my sweet tooth too, because I'm not craving sweets. I want whole foods - meats, fruits, vegetables. Meat and salad, meat and salad, they're all I want!
I was down another . 5 lbs this morning for a total of 5. 2 lbs lost in the last five days. And don't underestimate the impact of five pounds. I mistakenly neglected to measure myself before we started, but by the way my clothes fit, I can tell that I have lost inches. I really feel good.
I joke with my husband that the best part of going to bed at night is getting to wake up and see how much weight I've lost.
And speaking of that, it's 10:28pm. Time for bed.
