I started the 3 day Shakeology cleanse last Monday. During the cleanse I drank 3 shakes a day and a salad with white meat for dinner. I'm not going to say it was easy, but I survived. The best part (even more than any weight I lost) is that I gained control over my food. I broke habits, stopped cravings, and let my body rest from the processed, rich foods of a normal day.
It's been a week of working back into "normal" eating, although I'm not sure I will ever be normal again. Now I know that I can say no to the licorice being offered to me or the enticement of a Pepsi. Now it can be my choice to indulge in these types of things, not a failure.
Going through this cleanse with our group of 46 people, including my mom, husband, sister, and more really helped me stay the course, too. Being encouraged and accountable to others is powerful motivation to stay the course. Thank you Chloe Gibbs for inspiring us and leading this group. I look forward to another 3 day cleanse this fall!
