Hello all. I began posting earlier on a different thread about how I was unable to keep food down. I was overwhelmed with the supportive replies and suggestions.
Since then, though, I have become very sick. Nausea and can't really stop vomitting. After speaking with my mom and sister, I've made the decision that My body is telling me this isn't right. I feel I need to stop this diet.
I have lost 17 lbs. 17 the first 7 days. I've followed the protocol to a T. Not a single cheat, vitamins, lots of water, etc. I felt AMAZING the first week. I want more than anything to see this through but I don't feel right.
My question now is - how do I safely come off the drops? What should I eat? How much? And while it doesn't seem that important when I'm writing from next to the toilet, with the least amount of weight gain. I am determined, and looking forward to a lifestyle of good for me foods and excercise. Ideally, I'd maintain my current weight and incorporate new habits just as I would have if I'd maintained the diet.
I am sorry to be a quitter. The success stories I've read are so wonderful and encouraging and I'd love to be one of them. But like my very concerned mom said...it works for some and maybe not others. But you have to listen to your body.
Anyway, I appreciate you reading this and will be neuroticly checking in to hear anyone's thoughts, experiences, advice or more questions to further understand What's happening.
Thank You so much.
