Cleanse Finale Update

Well we did it!  Cleanse is officially over! 
My progress? Well I lost about 6 pounds and 2 inches from my waist and 1 inch from my hips.  I can tell a difference in how my jeans fit for sure.  While I know (I am convinced this is water weight) and realize how quickly it can return, I do plan on sticking to a healthier eating schedule.  This was my goal and purpose to jump start from the get go.  I think the cleanse helped a little bit, but honestly with eating fruits, veggies and lean meats only, and all of the fiber that provides, I think the eating healthy contributed to a majority of my success.  
No matter what (I believe in everything in moderation, but I plan on continuing to keep fruits and even more veggies in my daily eating plan).  And of course, water... water... water.  
I didn't have a chance to exercise much at all this week while on the cleanse.  I think I would have had even greater success if I had been able to work out.  
A majority of weight loss/toning (in my opinion) is finding the formula that works for you.  A lot of it has to do with metabolism and how your body breaks down what you eat.  I know I do better (when losing weight) if I up my cardio and cut carbs.  A friend of mine is opposite, she ups cardio and carbs and elimates (can't remember if it is calories or fat grams) to see success.  
Overall, I am happy with the cleanse and happy I participated in it in a group setting.  Definitely a lot  more fun that way!

  1. Great job! I'm so glad you were successful! My husband will be home tonight to take my measurements and I'm interested to see how many inches I lost. And I agree, I think 90% of weight loss is diet, and eating so healthy and drinking so much water for the past 10 days is definitely what did it for me. And I love the support of being in the group setting, too. :-)
