Hurray! It’s The Last Day

I can officially begin to use a title I stole from Chinua Achebe’s ‘The Drum’… “I am tortoise (Makcit in this case) who doesn’t leave a fight (task) halfway”.
It is a thing of pride for me that 7 days ago I started this detox-diet amidst major rebellion from my head and today I’m done. One more thing to brag to my head about. :p
DAY 7
Today your food intake will consist of 1 cup of rice, fruit juice and all the vegetables you care to consume.

First couple of days, it felt like I was gonna throw in the towel, but I held on. My ambition was just to get through each day instead of wondering about day seven.

Lessons
Β» You can do anything as long as you set your mind to it. I told myself I needed to do this. Not for the weight loss it assured, but just to feel ‘cleaner’.
Β» Take the time to do you. If I had done this for someone I’m sure I would have given up long ago. The drive would have been nonexistent, but because I did it for me I was able to find the strength I need.
I’m currently feeling much better about myself, both inside and out. I feel lighter (maybe it is in my head) and my jackets didn’t feel so snug when I tried them this morning as I was looking for what to wear.
I can’t see a downside to the past 7days only pluses all through.

“What doesn’t kill you, makes you stronger”

I’m much stronger for it now than when I started. I want to appreciate those who cheered me on like Zeal… I’m grateful.
