Day 12...when to stop?
This weekend I put the Master-Cleanse
to the test of some major hiking in Mt. Rainier park. WA Everyone talks about exercising while on the MC. I did farely well although once home I had zero energy and my lemon drink wasn't helping to remedy that drain of energy. The Master-Cleanse
drink has it's merrit but I don't think it's the ideal thing to do while doing major physical exertion.
This morning I feel drained like I can't seem to get going. My intention is to keep fasting for atleast another week but I'm struggling with it. I've noticed my skin getting loose and that concerns me. I am 10 lbs.
from my goal lb. and had planned to continue until I reach this weight.
I guess I'm looking for support to keep going. Part of me thinks maybe it's time to come off because all weekend I've been hungry! I'm not sure if this is because I was around a lot of food and exerting my body extensively or if my body is ready to eat again. A little background is I've fasted several times over the years and 3x this past year alone...so I'm not a newbie.
Anyone out there on around the same day into their fast want to exchange support?
THe hardest part of going forward at this point is feeling like I'm socially cut off from connecting with others. I am recently single and want to get out and socialize. Doing this fast makes it difficult to relate to others. Food is a big focus in people's lives. I know my goals are worth it and food will be there I just wonder if it's time to stop in light of my hunger. I feel more drained now than I have for the entire fast.
Thanks for sharing your ideas.
