i wouldn't worry about your weight while doing this. my mom has done this so many times and she's ran into the same thing before. sometimes our bodies just fluctuates to much to even bother doing this while cleansing. your prob about done with the 10 days now right?

Yes Saddy ~

Weight plateau. My weight stopped going down for 3-4 days and now has started going down again slowly. I haven't been "pooping" much at all, very very small amounts here and there. I took the tea last night and it just gave me bad cramps and some gas, and then I finally went just a teensy bit this afternoon. I also started my period yesterday, so wondering if that had to do with part of it. I do certainly have extra weight to drop, so was surprised it wasn't budging for a bit.

What kind of plataue? If it's weight, I'd say you've emptied your body of all the food that was in process and probably peed out all the excess fluid...

Anyone have experiences with plateaus during cleansing and what may cause them?

Hi Sherry ~

Thank you so much! I'm so excited to be doing this again!

Saddy ~

Thank you for sharing your journeys with me. I love hearing about others stories, the good and the hardships.

I am on day 6 today!! Whoop Whoop! Feeling super good, and so glad to have today and tomorrow to sit home and relax! I lost around 9.2 lbs total, but the last 2 days it went up slightly, and then back down again to my lowest, 177.2. As much as I would love to see the number continue to go down, i'm not unmotivated at all to continue. I have had no headaches and no super bad side effects, other than when I tried to take a super hot bath.. Wow, I really really don't recommend anyone on the cleanse to do that. I almost fainted and it took a 1/2 hour for my heartbeat to return to normal.

I did the SWF this morning for the first time, way way worse than I remember it.. Little solids at first, then mostly straight liquid. Felt good to be "flushed" though.

great job april...i hope this go around is smooth for you. i've never made it past day 6 so i understand where your coming from with trying to stick to it the whole time. i think your mentality is great though b/c this really is a cleanse..not a weight loss program. my mom made it 40 days...crazy uh?! lol / i def find that i'm not hungry when on the cleanse. for me its more the chewing aspect that i miss. just having the taste of something diff in my mouth. hard to get use to. i know i need to try one again soon b/c i do 100% believe this is a great tool for cleaning out the body. wishing you all the best...good luck!!!

April-

I've cleansed 5 times. I have some digestive issues and it really helps. I feel like it resets my system and I don't have the same issues for a month or 2. That has been my main reason, but I also love how it makes me aware of my eating impulses, and breaks some of my habits. Three times I made it through the 10 days, as planned. The first time I cleansed, I had a work function that I broke it on Day 8 for (and then I learned to never break it without the slow reintroduction to food period), and the most recent time, I think I made it to day 5 or 6 and was just having awful headaches and heartburn to where I was not functional, so I broke it early. I don't think I would use a cleanse for weight loss, unless it was just as a break from old habits. When I start eating again, I usually only end up down a couple pounds, and I could lose a couple pounds in 2 weeks in a much more pleasant way by cutting calories and exercising.

I know that it is better to make the lemonade as you go, but I find that what works better for me is to make it up in the morning and fill up a bunch of 8 oz bottles and drink a whole one periodically through out the day. I make a schedule and my body comes to know what to expect. And a whole 8 oz bottle fills my belly nicely. I also don't do the SWF, since the book says you don't have to as long as you do the tea twice/day. I think the SWF is horrible.

I think day 4 is usually the worst for me so far as hunger goes, and then it's smooth sailing from there.

Hi Kari ~

I would love to hear about some of your past cleanses. Like how many, for how long? Were your reasons weight related or health related? What was the most positive part about cleansing for you and did you have any long lasting health effects for the better? If you want to answer :)

My Day 1 today is going fabulous other than feeling hungry here and there all day so far. I was expecting this though.. Sipping my lovely lemon drink pretty regularly today, haven't been keeping track of how much really since I keep adding to my bottle, but I know I usually drink over the recommended amount and not under.

Congrats on the new addition to your family!

~April

Good Luck! I haven't cleansed in a while because I was pregnant and now nursing, but I'd be happy to provide any support I can.

Starting my cleanse tomorrow morning, Monday May 18th! Would love to have any buddies for support along the way. This will be my third cleanse.

I've noticed this group seems fairly inactive, but hoping this will prompt someone to start posting! Will check back over the next couple days.
