100 lb. Club - Starting something new... OT
02-14-2008, 11:43 PM
I am taking a little vacation from my counting calories and have decided to do a detox! It's a really good one - and I cannot wait until I am done and am feeling good! It's called Wild Rose Detox (it's canadian too!)- and I'm doing it to rid my body of yeast and get my stomach balanced. It's not a huge difference from my normal diet so it should be a smooth transition. I am really excited! :carrot: 2008 is the year I get my body healthy and feel GOOD, I've had some rough years and don't want to be that person who is always sick.
Anyways - wish me luck! 1 day down, 11 to go! :)

Good luck Aimee! What is involved in the detox?
02-15-2008, 09:29 AM
Good luck...what is it you are going to do. Is this to detox from sugar?
02-15-2008, 10:37 AM
Good luck! What does this do and what do you take?
02-15-2008, 10:55 AM
Good luck Aimee!!!!

Thanks gals :)
What's involved in this detox is eating a balance of acid forming, alkaline forming and neutral foods, basically domestic fruits, all veggies, lean meat, but no sugar/processed foods. I also take vitamins with my breakfast and dinner. The point of the detox is to rid the body of yeast , as well as detoxing the body of toxins. And one of the other benefits is that it will balance my stomach - and thats a HUGE one for me!

Aimee - good luck with the detox!!! and let us know how it went.
02-15-2008, 12:21 PM
Good for you Aimee :)
I'd like to hear how it goes as well :yes:
02-15-2008, 12:40 PM
Let us know... I've never even thought of doing that. I was thinking that if you did you spent much time in the bathroom... humm interesting.
I have done that detox too! It was several years ago and I remember I did lose about 6 lbs that I didn't immediately regain the second I was done the detox. I had a hard time with the stuff you have to take (argh, those drops!) but you get used to it after a few days. Good luck with it, hope it helps!

Sounds interesting. I'm looking forward to seeing how you feel during the next 11 days.

Jen - the trick to the drops is to take them as a shot, and IMMEDIATELY put food in your mouth afterwards heh.
mez - I'm waiting for the bathroom trips to become more frequent, nothing yet! But I'm pretty regular.
Day 2 went great! 10 to go!

Aimee, I hope this detox makes you feel great and helps get your weight loss jump started again! Please keep us posted on your progress.

oh keep us posted Aimee and good luck!
I am curious, does yeast have an effect on weightloss?
02-16-2008, 01:41 PM
Good Luck Aimee !
I'm very interested in what your experience will be.
02-16-2008, 02:50 PM
How are things going Aimee? this sounds interesting.

Day 3! It went very well - I say this because I had to work alone from 8:30am-1pm.. was a little concerned about bathroom breaks. But it went just fine!
beautifulone - I don't know if yeast has any effect on weight loss? I just know when I have too much yeast I get other symptoms - yeast infections being the worst - but also bladder infections.
Rhonda - I don't know if it'll jump start more weight loss (I did well in January - lost 10 pounds!), but it wouldn't be the worst thing ever!
Just 9 days to go!
02-20-2008, 09:45 PM
I am at the halfway mark on the detox - I am feeling really good! I have some energy when I normally wouldn't! Tomorrow I'll WI to see what I've lost. My pants do feel a little loose - which is good because I was having issues breathing ;)
02-20-2008, 10:49 PM
Great job Aimee! :cheer2:
I hope it helps with those nasty infections...talk about two of the most annoying!
Really looking forward to hearing more!
02-21-2008, 11:57 AM
Woohoo Aimee!!! That is awesome. :bravo:
02-21-2008, 01:28 PM
WAY TO GO Aimee!

So I am down 4 pounds after 7 days! Not too bad when I really think about it! I cannot wait to see the 240's!
02-22-2008, 11:41 AM
WTG Aimee!!! Congrats on the 4 lbs. I bet your feel great!
02-23-2008, 12:22 AM
Something interesting has been happening on this detox. It's really kinda crazy! So - when I wake up my body craves exercise! You aren't really supposed to while on a detox - but I just can't NOT do it! And the cravings? Not thats bad - I sat and visited with people eating cake at work. Also - the other thing is I can SMELL, realllly smell everything. It's amazing truly. Just wanted to share!
02-26-2008, 12:33 PM
I am DONE!! I made it thru 12 days! It was definitely hard, but could have been harder if I hadn't been eating like this before I had started.
I am down 9 pounds total!! I am happy with it - esp since I am in the 240's again! I am feeling good, despite the fact I came down with a flu/cold in the last 3 days.. so yucky! But I am excited to integrate some of the stuff I learned into my regular diet! Very good experience :)
02-26-2008, 12:33 PM
That is awesome Aimee!!!!

Well done, Aimee! Now you're clean as a whistle! :)
