It is finally the end of my 10 Day Cleanse, and I feel transformed completely. On my last day, I was full of energy and I didn't want to the end to come! I am excited to tell you my results. My weight is at 129 pounds, which means that I lost a total of 7 pounds in 10 days. My waist is at 27 inches. My chest is at 35 inches and my bottom is at 36 inches. I lost 4 inches in my bottom. I lost two inches off my waist. This all pleasantly surprised me, because I worked out daily, but didn't do anything extra strenuous, like lifting weights. My exercise program was simple walks on the treadmill and outside under the moon for 45 minutes to an hour. Also, I felt my muscles become toned and strong.
My agni was vibrant and beautiful; it is best described as a heated spark at the navel. It doesn't burn and it doesn't make you feel nervous. It feels so special to be able to connect with your Center (digestion, motivation, and personal power) in this way. I looked at the before and after pictures for the most insights. I couldn't believe how much weight came off of my face alone. It is really interesting how much your face tells your entire life story. In addition, the desires for sweets have deteriorated completely. I don't have the pull anymore for chocolate chip cookies and anything like that. In fact, my cravings were short lived during Day 7 and Day 8, where mostly I thought about Chinese food take-out and Mexican food comforts.
My state of mind is pretty clear for the most part, but I know I could do better. My mind stuff and the work to manage the mind is always a challenge, but it get's better little by little. I am a work in progress. Do I feel more confident? Yes. I do, but not because of my lighter body or lighter state of mind. I feel confident because I love my body no matter what. I realized that I needed to love my body and even my lack of confidence (Bridget Jones moments). Loving yourself and your body is a rebellious and controversial act! Join the rebellion and love. Love yourself unconditionally; every single part. You will wake up smiling everyday.
