The 21 days is now over, an ending, or for me just a beginning.
The three weeks went by so quickly and there have been so many changes! My brain functions better, sleep is much better, energy level is at an all time high, weight loss, (which practically fell off!) I have no idea how much weight I've taken off since I haven't stepped in a scale in months, but if I were to guess I would say its coming close to the 10lb mark.
Weight loss was never my goal for this journey, although I knew some needed to be taken off I was more concerned about feeling better and less lethargic, which is exactly what I've received. When you fill your body with so many nutrients and get rid of the processed food, sugar, etc, the body naturally returns to its optimum weight.
Three weeks to change so much, doesn't sound like a lot either. Three weeks in a year, 3 weeks out of 52, put in that scale seems like nothing. The rewards seem unsurmountable to me!
I've always had an issue with excema on my chin and mouth area since I can remember. It comes and goes, never really paying attention to what caused it in the first place.
Since I have eliminated both dairy and gluten from my diet its cleared up in the first week! I'm not sure which one is the culprit at the moment but with slow introduction I'll find out and which ever one it is bothering me will be permanently eliminated.
Another positive is my skin in general. My skin is glowing! Fine lines have diminished significantly, dark circles under my eyes are almost gone! I swear you could measure how much they've receded! I just don't look tired anymore. When I wake, even if my sleep was broken I don't have puffy eyes and my sinus's are draining properly.
All in three weeks through diet change alone!
It hasn't always been easy. The first week was challenging due to the toxins leaving the body. I did have headaches, mind fog, fatigue, and cravings but my goal was well planned out. My fridge stocked, my juicer ready, so when those points hit I just made juice to assist in the removal of what was trying to leave my body.
There were also some negative self thoughts, a bit of crying, and lots of journaling, rearranging of clutter, both mental and physical.
It was all worth it!
