Well, I'm still here aren't I? Just kidding, I'm more than here, I feel ( ) awesome. Yes, it was hardish at times, and occasionally I was hungry, but overall it was as easy, if not easier than in the past. And I didn't cheat - not even once! (Confession: I cheated my second cleanse, eeksies) So, that might have been the hardest part: Going to lunch with my students and not partaking in any Rice Krispie treats (oh wait, how did you gain 10lbs?), smelling yummy food throughout my building - you get the point - and knowing I couldn't have a single bite. But it was worth it. Over all I don't think I lost much poundage (3ish?), but I feel really wonderful and my skin is clear and I'm don't feel like a balloon on the verge of popping - these are all very good things. Basically, I'll be really pumped to partake again after the holidays. And that's that.
