I slept like a rock last night. I woke up feeling so refreshed, I couldn't believe it was only 6 am. Now granted, I was tired so I made it to bed at 10:20 or so which is about an hour earlier than normal. But still, I feel good today.
Now for the "icky" part. I did end up with one bout of diarrhea yesterday. But it was not too awful. Not burning or painful. It was preceded by some cramping that definitely got my attention and was not comfortable. But as soon as I went to the bathroom I felt fine.
The same thing happened today and that is the only BM I have had today. I've had a little more cramping, at least this morning. I was a little worried driving home from my kid's school that I was going to have a problem. But it really is just the intestine pulling the water in that causes the cramping. And it does not last, just for a moment or so and then it passes.
So far, the only big difference in the way I feel is that I have been sleeping well - and normally I wake up a lot. I also don't feel bloated which is nice. No significant changes in my weight, but I have been dieting for a while so I didn't really expect that. I hear you feel a big difference in your energy level by the end of the week. So we shall see.
