“With all the buzz about “Cleansing”, I had always wanted to do one. It was like my body was telling me I needed one, but, which one? There are so many different kinds of cleanses and supplements to do cleanses with, it was overwhelming to me. Months, years went by and I had still not figured it out on my own. That was until, out of the blue, I got an invite from Tonya for a Group Cleanse. I felt a weight lifted and I knew that this was my chance to do a cleanse if I was ever going to do one! With the organized group cleanse Tonya told me the exact supplements/nutrients and foods that I was going to need. Every step of the way was laid out for me. It was not overwhelming because we did each step as we got there so it was not an information dump, it was done in phases. I loved the live group calls that we had, they were so powerful and really got me charged up to take this on and do something incredibly healthy for myself! These calls were recorded so if you missed them, you could just replay them, which was great for my hectic work travel schedule. I knew exactly what I had to do and if we had questions we all helped each other out on the Facebook group page, which I really loved all that support and sharing of information. All I had to do was show up for myself and commit to myself and I did. It was one of the most empowering things I have done for me! I definitely woke up a part of myself that I didn’t know existed… a Master Cleanse is no walk in the park and if I had known what I was getting myself into before I said yes; I probably would have never done it!
What did I learn? That you can re-train your body to enjoy nourishing food again. My taste buds and senses were awakened! Healthy food smelled and tasted so good! My skin and my body got its young shape and look back again; the belly pouch I couldn’t get rid of from two babies was gone! I slept so soundly and I was never hungry or felt deprived… In fact just the opposite, I felt amazing and that was what made the cleanse work, I was feeling so good, it kept me going! My positive mood and spunk for life was back!
In hindsight, I was really glad I told people what I was doing, I didn’t tell everyone, but I told enough people to create accountability for myself and create a support group on top of the cleanse group. I did this cleanse along with caring for my two little girls and traveling on the road and staying in hotels and flying on planes, so anyone can do this cleanse you just have to prep yourself for success. 11 days of the cleanse, I lost 8 pounds and I truly felt like superwoman!
