"Day 8" or "8 is Great"

Last night I woke up with my throat feeling constricted.  I flexed my tonsils over and over and bunches of little tonsil stones kept coming out.  GROSS...but GREAT to have them out!  They must've been there a while since I haven't had anything hard now for a week.  A WEEK folks.

Most of the day I've felt pretty good.  I didn't even haaaaate the SWF this morning though, as usual, it takes a while to make a reappearance.  I suspect I've got a lot more in my intestines and colon than I even want to know.

Oh, I DO want to know...I'm pretty sure I'll be doing a Dr. Natura cleanse of my guts after this.  Those pictures are so riveting disgusting.

In the last hour or so though a dull headache has come upon me. 

I still have super power smell.

Also...stopped by the gym this morning to do a quick weigh in.  9 lbs.  NINE.

First. How do you flex your tonsils.

Second. What the heck is a tonsil stone?

1. You know when you're trying to clear your throat and you kind of suck back with your tongue? I dunno...just flexing your throat...squeezes your tonsils.

2. A tonsil stone are those little white flecks/bits you get in your tonsils every so often? Maybe you don't get them...

If it weren't for A&P I wouldn't know where my tonsils are. I did google it after I asked (der) and I've never heard of them still...nor anyone who has had them...but you.

I second that remark.
Tonsil stone.
What?
Sounds really uncomfortable.

Yeeek.
I have missed that particular biological abomination.
May they clear and stay clear.

Also, I have no tonsils.
The medical community still believed in removing them during my childhood.
Get enough sore throats, and out they came!

I have one tonsil. Apparently at some point in middle school, the other fell off and I swallowed it.

(I thought the doctor was pulling my leg, but no, really, that's what they think happened!!)

You're inspiring me. One of my problems losing weight it that much of it comes from chemical sensitivity. I was exposed to a lot of toxic crap (benzene, formaldehyde, toluene, and more), and as a result lost about 15% of my lungs, developed asthma, and became extremely allergic to tons of chemicals.

Over time the sensitivity has reduced, but my body responds to it in food, etc., by hiding it in fat. The dr compared it to an oyster hiding an irritant in a pearl, except I use lard. So every time I lose more than 10-12 lbs., I start to get sick, because of all the released toxins. A good, thorough cleansing might be just what's needed to push me past all that.

Btw, when you say "super power smell," you mean your sense of smell, not your personal scent, right? Right?

Heh...yes, I can smell everything! I don't think *I* smell. I mean, nobody has said anything. My bro in law has told my sister who is also cleansing that she smells like lemons. :D

It sounds like a detox would be really good for you.

I've only had the Super Smell once (out of 7 cleanses), but the time that I did I could tell with total accuracy what people were eating in the other office wings. :)

You've done SEVEN? All Master Cleanses? What did you do?
aceofkittens
May. 22nd, 2007 06:19 pm (UTC)
Yeah, all of them were Master Cleanses. Most of them were 10 days - I did do one 14 day one and a couple that were random (like one time I went for 12, another time I only did 9). :)

The hardest thing about the Cleanse is coming off it into the real world. I keep hoping that the lessons will stick, and yet they don't seem to. :( But I don't mean to be discouraging - you are doing fantastic! :)

I'm hoping I'll be able to take this as a catapult into more healthy eating.

Honestly though I've been doing pretty well this year. I gave up dessert and that has helped a lot. No ice cream (my favorite!) or cookies or cakes so I've done pretty well on getting rid of the sugar cravings.

I know I needed to get off soda and especially caffiene so this cleanse has helped.

My BIGGEST downfall is chips. Gotta guard against THAT.

If you have a defined post-cleanse eating plan, I find that really helps. For me personally, I need structure, and I don't do well when I have too many choices. So even though I always end the cleanse with the best of intentions, I usually have only an amorphous plan and I inevitably stumble and fall back into my old patterns. Unfortunately.

But it sounds like you are already making the right choices, so I think you'll do well! :)
