MC, Day 11

No, no, I'm not still doing the cleanse.

I'm now weaning myself off the cleanse and onto regular food! Hooray!

Today (technically, yesterday- Friday) was all about pineapple juice. I had pineapple juice and pineapple, and that's it. And I feel great (it's a bit past 1:00 a.m. here). I had more energy, I wasn't as cold, and things seemed "normal" for me. Except for the thing where I was at work for just about twelve hours, but that's beside the point.

I weighed myself today, using the same scale as I did on Day 5, and I've lost 7 pounds. So in 10 days, 22 pounds have gone away. The average weight lost per day is supposed to be 2 pounds, so this is pretty much normal. I was not prepared for most of the weight to come off in the first five days, but that's okay, I can accept it.

Tomorrow, I'm seriously going to eat something other than pineapples (though I do dearly love them). Yogurt in the morning and whatever sort of soup I can figure out for lunch. There are errands to be run and things to do, so I'll need some extra pep.

I'm seriously thinking about doing this again in a while, probably just after Thanksgiving. I'll give it some thought and see how I adjust back into the wide world of food, then go from there. I want to observe how quickly my body goes back to craving and eating junk food- weigh the pros and cons again in a couple weeks before I make any hasty plans.

Meanwhile, there is a very cute bunny that is hopping madly about and he needs some love.
