Opti day 8
on 8/8/13 12:20 am - Canada
Well I've made it this far after a very rocky start! I really thought I could not do it! The first 4 days were really rough. I had no energy, headaches and general overall malaise. (I was a little cranky too). Something happened on the 5th day. I popped out of bed like a daisy and decided to paint my deck. I did that for 2 days with more energy then I did when I ate food! I slept like a log too and woke refreshed. I'm NOT saying this has been easy, but it does get easier. Cooking for my family is an issue so I think next week they will have to prepare their own. I've lost 11 pounds in 8 days and I feel good!

It also takes a few days for our bodies to go into ketosis - so that is the stage you are probably at. I did the Core program from the OWMC in 2009, so had the shakes for 12 weeks. I am hoping I will be able to do them for 3 weeks, because I had tried doing them another time and kept on gagging - will be interesting to see how it goes!
