Day 266

Thursday 22nd September 2016

Day 4 of detox was the worst day last time. It was the day I got the shakes really bad, my emotions were all over the place and I couldn’t concentrate at all. I think I spent most of the day in bed because I couldn’t cope. 

At the time I was going through cold turkey on sugar and it was the final stages of the sugar leaving my system which is why it was the worst day. 

I was also ready to quit on day 4 last time. I had hit a brick wall and I couldn’t see a way through it. If I hadn’t have rang Jenny I think I would have quit.

Today is day 4 of detox again. Things are so different – quite frankly I have hardly noticed. No shakes, no erratic emotions my cold is even getting better.

There was a time a few weeks ago that I didn’t think my weight was ever going to move. Lately though, even before the detox, I have been losing weight constantly. This hasn’t happened for so long. I feel like I have had a real breakthrough.


5lbs in one week is some going considering I have been going for so long now. That is the type of weight loss you get in the beginning of a diet not 9 months in.  I just hope it continues

Day 172

Monday 20th June 2016

I always thought I was addicted to sugar. Last year I put sugar on my cereal.  I would eat I don’t know how many chocolate bars a day. So I think last year I was addicted to sugar. 

For years I have been a secret eater. My philosophy was that if no one saw me eat it, it didn’t happen. I would have a stash of chocolate and sweets hidden in many different places and eat it when no one was looking. 

I did a lot of baking and all the things I made would contain lots of sugar


I always knew that sugar is bad for you but I said to myself that I needed it to survive. 

When I did the detox back on day 28 it was the worst thing that I have ever been through. For the first 4 days I went through withdrawals I had the shakes, hunger pains and I was incredibly tired. I went cold turkey from sugar. 

Since then I have not had one craving, I have not had one slip up, I have not been tempted to eat anything sweet. I very often sit around a dinner table and have to look at nice desserts but it doesn’t bother me.  I can take it or leave it, but I tend to,most of the time, leave it.

Even though cold turkey was the worst thing I did while I was going through it, now it is by far the best thing I ever did.

Day 31

Day 4 of detox

I am still eating food I don’t like, but I am going to persevere with it in the hope that I do get to like it.

By late morning I got very giddy and shaky and I couldn’t shake it off, not even after lunch. I was so bad at lunch time that I cried my way through it. I just couldn’t cope any more.


Had to go to bed in the afternoon but I was really struggling. I got to the stage where I wanted to quit I thought I would tell Jenny the nutritionist so I called her.

She said that I am doing really well and to keep going and that what I am feeling is natural because at the minute all the glucose is coming out of my liver and the shakes are like me going through cold turkey. She said tomorrow would be better.

So I didn’t quit.

After dinner a was a little better.
