    I just have one thing to add. I really must apologize to everyone who was so supportive in the last thread I started on nutritional cleansing. Alyssa kindly sent me a message explaining why the thread was moved. Apparently based on the website I posted, some people were under the impression I was spamming. I want to apologize to anyone who felt this way. Yes it is true, that I signed up as an associate with the company whose products I am using only so that I could purchase the products at the wholesale price, since I know I will have to use the products for a very long time in order to lose allllll the weight I need to lose. In no way, shape or form, was I posting the link to the company website to solicit sales. I honestly thought I was just being helpful to those who wanted to learn more.

    Alyssa, I really appreciate you bringing this to my attention, so I could clear up any misconceptions.

    Thanks again for all the kind words!
    Angela,

    thanks for clearing everything up and i am really glad the cleanse is working so well for you :)

        Thanks Alyssa!

        Just so there wouldn't be any more confusion in the future, I've deleted the website from post #22. That way, if anyone wants to learn more, they can google, or contact me privately.

        Thanks again!

          Well... today is my final cleanse day, and I feel awesome. I really do! I'll weigh again tomorrow... but as of this morning, in total I have lost 10 lbs and 10 inches. For any of you who have seen my youtube videos, you know just by looking at me that I have a long way to go. But it is a start. I almost feel excited about looking at wedding gowns... ALMOST. But I won't.. at least not for a while. Not until I lost alot more weight.

          I have sucky news though.... today I was diagnosed with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome. This is a condition where women who have this condition are at risk for developing Diabetes, because it messes with your insulin resistance/tolerance,... therefore most women who have this are overweight. Not ALL women, but most. So now I'm starting on a medication to help alleviate some of my symptoms. It should also help with the weight loss, because my insulin levels will be better controlled. Also, women who have this disorder also have trouble getting pregnant, and some will remain infertile. I can't stress out about it too much right now. I have a referral to see a gynecologist that works at my hospital. Since the floor I work on is General Surgery, Urology, GI, and Gynecology, I'm pretty comfortable with her. I realize this part of the post probably doesn't belong in this thread... I only mentioned it because other people who may have PCOS may relate to the weight issues.

          Anyway, take care everyone...

            congrats on the weight loss so far!!

            I'm sorry to hear about your diagnosis...I hope everything will be okay and you can continue to lose weight. I'm tempted to try the 9-day cleanse as a kick-start to my weight loss efforts. Please keep us posted!

              Ok... so yesterday was my last day on the 9 day cleanse (plus there were 2 days of pre-cleanse) so total 11 days.. and I got up this morning and was down another lb. So the grand total for the past 11 days was 11 lbs and 10 inches! WOW! I'm really happy with that. I can't believe that I am 11 lbs lighter than I was 11 days ago. I must have been really toxic! LOL

              LadyChesse, thanks for your kind words... I'm hoping that even though there is no cure, I can at least get treatment that will make life a little easier. I guess I'll just wait until I talk to the Gyne.

              Thanks again!

                Hi ya! Well, it has been a little while since my last post. Things are still going very well. I'm at 13 inches and 14 lbs lost so far. I'm still loving Isagenix! I've also been taking metformin for my PCOS and it has been helping a tonne with my cravings for sweets. They are basically non-existent now, which is amazing, because if I could've started an IV on myself and infused chocolate syrup - I would have. But no longer!! lol

                Anyway, that's all for now, just wanted to post a quick update! Take care!

                    Amy! Good for you! I hope it goes well for you. If you are planning your cleanse days, and are not sure how you will react, I definately suggest scheduling them on your days off (just in case). I didn't feel the need to have urgent bowel movements or anything, but I did go quite a few times on the first cleanse day. Just make sure you are near a bathroom just in case.

                    Also, if you are preparing for the cleanse, trying limiting caffiene, pop etc... I switched to decaff and don't notice a difference at all. It tastes the same to me. And drink LOTS of water. I drink 2-3 litres a day.
                    Good luck with the cleanse! Keep us posted on how you're doing! I'm still doing mine. I'm on the 30 day program now, so will just continue with it until I reach my goal. Take care!!
