I spent most of Hawaii eating malasadas and loco mocos.
Then, right after Hawaii, it was M’s Lalaloopsy birthday party. Of course I spent most of the party budget on the awesome dessert table. I think I downed about 10 -15 cake pops that whole weekend. I know that the Sunday after her party, I ate about 6 cake pops for breakfast..
So naturally, I gained weight.
I told myself, and my coworkers, that after all the September fesitivites I’d do a cleanse.
And I did, along with two of my coworkers.
We decided to do the lemon, water, maple syrup and cayanne pepper cleanse. We had done it before, and I didn’t see any results. That’s probably because I totally cheated for most of it.. I didn’t lose any weight at all! This time was going to be different. And it was.
Also known as the Master Cleanse, we were supposed to drink only this, day and night. However, we modified it. We drank it all day, but had a small, sensible dinner.
Some mornings, I had two hard boiled eggs for breakfast. But I stayed disciplined. I didn’t binge on food when I got home from work. I controlled the amount of dinner I ate.
I started the cleanse on dinner of September 8th. I weighed in at 151lbs. I looked like it too. Have you seen my Hawaii pictures?!
We planned on doing it for two weeks, but I’m continuing until I finish the bottle of organic lemon juice I purchased at Costco. So I think it will take me into part of this week.
I weighed in this morning at 143lbs. I lost all my Hawaii weight AND some of the weight I’m trying to get rid of in the first place.
I definitely see the results as well. I no longer look bloated, and I can walk uphill during our walks with no worries at all!
I’m a little bit worried eating regularly again. I know that I really have to make a change. I have to change the type of food I eat, and the amount of food. I’m looking into a more natural approach. More veggies. More natural things. Just overall healthier choices.
I hope I can keep the weight off, and lose more weight.
I used the Master Cleanse as a way to “jump start” the weight loss and get my stomach used to smaller amounts of food. I’m hoping that I can continue the weight loss by make smarter food choices and doing the walking.
Yay for getting to that pre-prego weight!
