The pain has finally started going away. Now that I’m at 90% recovered from this joint & muscle pain I experienced my first week with CRON (calorie restriction optimal nutrition) I’m more and more convinced it had to do with either sugar withdrawal detox symptoms, or just overall cleansing/losing weight symptoms. Supposedly, when I started losing the weight the toxins start flowing through the body – ready for exit. But because I limited the amount of food in the body – the toxins had nothing to attach themselves to on their way out – and therefore attached my body (per se). But now they are heading out, and I feel so much better.
After my first full day of CRON (eating about 1081kcals), the next morning I weighed in at 164.6lbs. I wanted to weigh myself AFTER a healthy day, versus before the start of the healthy one. I knew that I would lose water weight, and the left over junk would have been weighed in.
After 6 days, or the full 7 week of eating the healthiest I have ever eaten in my entire life, I weighed in at 159.6lbs. This means I lost exactly 5lbs in my first week. I believe I experienced those painful detox symptoms because of this drastic weight loss. I did go to the doctor’s two days ago, just to make sure I was okay. I got my blood drawn, which is great, because I get to see what my starting CRON numbers look like!
But I’m going and keeping it going. This morning I weighed in at 158lbs, which is awesome. I feel pretty super, and I’m psyched to continue to eat my very best. I’m down a total of 6.6lbs and I feel so good.
My skin on my face looks so good. It looks tight, and clear, and healthy, and happy! The last few days, I’ve been eating so clean, and mostly just raw fruits & veggies, and two eggs per day. I’m having Kombucha as well, whenever I get to the store. I’m having trouble getting over 1K calories. I’m super satisfied, and not hungry at all. My mind is clear, and fast, and I’m not experiencing anything negative or unsatisfactory. I’m sure once I lose the weight, my body will figure out exactly the amount of calories I need, and let me know exactly what to eat!
I feel my body healing. I feel it really appreciating I’m feeding it just the raw, wholesome grub, and it’s totally taking care of me in return. I slept pretty great last night, and I want to stay motivated to keep eating this way. Last night we had a little celebration for my daughter’s 2nd birthday.
I purchased Newman’s natural frozen pizza pies, and we had cake and it was a really nice, easy fun mini celebration. Before I left work, I made myself a bowl of romaine lettuce, cucumber, avocado, grapes and carrots to enjoy while my family ate “the other stuff”. I felt good eating along, but also eating my grub! I’m actually super motivated to see how far I can take this, and hopefully continue it for a very long time.
The goal is to settle into a routine where I’m eating all raw, healthy, natural, wholesome grub, and I’m happily settled at a weight that helps me delay aging, delay all diseases, and just be absolutely right from the inside out. I also believe this diet will give me the courage, strength and motivation to go after everything else I want in life.
