*high 5 back*

Thank you! I still can't believe it's been a week. It's been hard, but I'm feeling better. My skin is so clear right now. The post purge dark circles are gone. I don't have heart palpitations. I'm happy!! It's insane. The only downside is that I am retaining so much water. My face and body are really puffy. I'm not even going to bother weighing myself because that would probably set me back. Oh and now that I'm not insanely exhausted all the time, I think a lot and have a lot of energy...which only sucks because I have horrible insomnia now. But yeah after today it'll be 8 days.

The water retention will slowly go away and hey it definitly sounds like the pros outweigh the cons :) When you have some time have a read up on sleep hygiene, you might find something useful to help with the insomnia.

That's good to hear because the puffiness is killing me! It's extremely annoying and I just keep poking my face and whatnot because I feel puffy. But yes other than water retention, insomnia, and now learning how to 'deal' with my emotions, I can't complain. The pros definitely outweigh the cons. Later on I'll have to look into the insomnia thing though.

Thank you so much! This was extremely inspiring to read. :) After today it will be day 8, I'm happy I've made it past a week. However, I am not ultimately satisfied with only a week. I look forward to continuing to productively progress.
