Doing a Cleanse Update

Today is the start of day 9 on the cleanse. I'm feeling really great and my skin is looking much better. I lost 7 pounds the first week but have plateaued the last two days. I actually made it through my daughters birthday party without eating any sugar. I stared at her pinata candy all week but managed to stay strong. I'm thinking another week and then a few days fast (drinking water, lemon, maple syrup concoction), Then another few weeks of no sugar, gluten, alcohol, etc..
I should really just stay away from sugar all together, I think it really makes my allergies worse, or maybe it's the dairy??? I'm not sure. Anyway I'll do my best to limit it all for as long as I can.
That's the scoop here.

Could be the dairy. I know for me that gluten/wheat makes my allergies much worse. Without it in my diet (for the last year) my allergies are a LOT better. :) Good luck finding out the trigger!

Yes Gluten, it is evil. But I love my bread, so it is crazy hard to give it up forever. Luckily I have a friend whose a gluten free baker who can at least hook me up with cookies, that is if I start back on sugar... DAMN

What's that you're drinking in the photo? Are Bloody Marys legal on a cleanse?

That is a bloody mary. I'm just using the picture from the original post that sited my vacation of eating and drinking as a reason for my cleanse. Anyway, it's nice to remember the good old days, now that I'm 2 weeks into the cleanse.
