Day 34: Day 2 of 2 (cleanse/ detox)

Day 34: cleanse/ fast day #2 (of 2 consecutive).

So this evening, I was talking to a (Jewish) friend on the phone, telling him that I was on my second fast day. he said,"I do that once a year and that's enough."

Yeah, so far none of my friends have responded to the mention of fasting with "oh boy! can I join you? that sounds so fun!"

Well I'm about to go to bed, and when I get up… I eat! (well, not if I get up to pee in the middle of the night. But you know what I mean).

Had a doctors appointment today, and one of the first things she said was "you've lost weight!"

Interestingly, she said she could see it in my face. Which means to me I'm less bloated, because I'm no longer taking narcotics and hardly even taking any ibuprofen either (3 Advil in 34 days, versus taking it once, twice- even three times a day). 

My primary goal in starting this plan was to get healthier. To get my inflammation down. I need to get some new lab tests done to see if indeed I have succeeded in reducing my inflammation, but I do know this – I'm no longer struggling with the constant shoulder discomfort - The beast that is haunted me for 20 years and ruined many a nights' sleep.

Well of course, as soon as I start feeling better, my vanity kicks in, and now I want to drop a few more pounds. it's far more telling to use the tape measure than the scale. so, if I can control myself, I will only pull out the tape measure tomorrow and not step on the scale.

By tomorrow, I mean today, because it's 4 AM.

Cheers and well wishes!
