According to my detox literature, after Day 3, one can begin to feel euphoric on the detox. The only euphoria I feel is that I can eat some real food tomorrow and this 3 day fast of shakes, water and broth is over:-). For the last 3 days, my life has been ruled by the strict timetable of when to take shakes and tablets from these little sachets.
I am really pleased with myself for sticking to it. I wasn’t sure if I could when I started but I did it. I had a lot more energy today than days 1 and 2 which is a good thing as I was rather busy.
I had to go to London to sign some papers for my return to work in 3 weeks time. While there, I walked from Chancery Lane to Oxford Street and tried on a few jackets and suits for work. Nothing was quite right though so I came home. To be honest, although I felt more energetic than days 1 and 2, I was too tired to get excited about buying anything.
There is no snow in London! I slept most of the way home on the train and when I woke up at Marden it was a surprise to see everything white again.
This evening Fiona and Judy came for supper. I cooked for them (salmon and roasted vegetables) and I drank my broth and we had a lovely evening. I seem to be able to disassociate myself from the food around me and was not tempted to eat anything which is a weird state of affairs.
I went to Weight Watchers and lost 8 pounds!!! I realise there is a chance I will put it all back on but I am amazed I have lost 8 pounds after just 3 days detoxing. I bet I am the first person up for breakfast in my house tomorrow :-).
