Lemon Cleanse

What is the big deal about being skinny anyway... Sure, you can wear the cute clothes and feel super fantastic about yourself, but is that really what the big deal is about?

When I was 50 pounds lighter I didn't feel any better about myself than I do now. I know that this is a sad fact, but the truth is that I haven't ever been happy with my body or face, or anything in between. That is my goal this year (even though its now March and I haven't done so well with it so far), but my goal is to try to change the way I think about myself. I want to start believing that I am a sexy girl and that my body is beautiful. So, starting this Friday I am starting a Lemon Cleanse...

This is my way of kicking myself in the nuts and seeing how I deal with it. I am doing this for the cleansing idea and not the weight loss idea... although, the weight that I can potentially lose isn't half bad either. I will be on it for 15 days starting Thursday, March 13Th and finishing on Thursday, March 27Th. This cleanse is supposed to rid your intestines of all the build-up that has accrued since you were but a youth, and since I haven't ever done a cleanse before... than that is exactly what it is going to do.

So, this is my way of trying to amp myself up to go on this cleanse and succeed. My better half doesn't think that I can do it, but I am going to prove him wrong once and for all. btw... this isn't the first time I have come up with an idea like this and I have always failed in the past... TODAY I am taking the step to change this, for the better. I am going to go on this cleanse and succeed with it... the full 15 days!

You go, Sarooo! I know you can do it. I think we all need to be at peace with our bodies- It stinks how horribly we view ourselves. You are so so beautiful, inside and out. And more than that, an amazing person and mom. I am going to try to view myself better, too. I wasn't happier when I was thinner, either. Good luck on the cleanse!!!

I KNOW you can do it! It sounds like I just wrote that whole blog all by myself! Sad really. I don't know why you feel like that about yourself, because it isn't true. But I know exactly how you feel. So, 2008 is our year! IT IS! You start off with the lemon cleanse, I really can't bring myself to do it.

Ok, I'm going to need some more information on what exactly the Lemon Clense is. Sounds like a new project by Pledge!
