I can't believe you survived! Good job!
I love your sippy cup, too!
Woooooo First Second buddies! (high five)
First Second is amazing, congratulations!
First Second! Congratulations! I have yet to read a book from them that I haven't fallen madly in love with!
Hooray! Congratulations on all counts, Lucy! Terrific! :D
Whoa, you totally got manga on some peas!
Also, how the hell did you not lose weight?!
Two ways: First, many people aren't as hydrated as they might be,
and so on the Cleanse they actually pick up a little water weight.
Second, you get a pretty fair number of calories on the cleanse from the lemonade/maple syrup. Since you're still getting calories, you don't necessarily lose weight.
It's more about cleaning out your guts (hence the salt water), and giving your body an opportunity to purge out toxins by giving it incredibly easy to absorb calories. It can also give you a chance to rebuild your stores of enzymes/bile/etc.
Great comic, and huge congrats for the FIRST SECOND signing. They only seem to publish pure gold, so you're in with some good company.
There is no way in hell I could to this, I would be sick all week. Go you!
Congratulations on signing!! And on completing the master cleanse! I keep wanting to go on a liquid diet to cleanse but then end up missing solid food too much.
Lucy, your journal comics have always been a big inspiration, and it was a blast you see you do the 4 panels a day style that I've been using!
My favorites were panel 6 of the lead in, and panel 4 of day 6.
Oh and very excited to hear you have a second book in the pipes.
Thanks for comics!
It's hard to praise people on LJ comments without sounding sycophantic I find... but risking that I have to say that I will most certainly purchase your book when it comes out. I love your stuff!
As well as another congrats for sticking to this...diet?
I've heard that having six small meals a day is better on your stomach and body than 3 big ones.
Congrats on the book! That's awesome! I would've never been able to handle going without food for a week. (Also because cleanses don't really work.)
Ha ha! My old roommate went on this diet right before the 4th of July. He was quite pissed that we had a party and grilled steaks.
Lucy that's such awesome news! Congratulations my friend! And awesome job on the comic, I always really enjoy your work
Congratulations! and Congratulations! Yay!
ns with First Second. Great Work!
Any chance of finding out about that cleanse? I recently was finally able to come off of my meds (anti-inflammatory) and I'd really like to do a cleanse.
Brilliant and fascinating. Makes me think of a friend who did a fast like that.
And is always nice to know someone who gets the entire food thing.
That's excellent news about First Second! They put out some pretty awesome titles.
Good work! I don't think I could have done it.
And I totally have that sippy cup, too. It's awesome.
I can say I'm a proud owner of the "preview" version when the actual edition comes out!
Good job, and I cannnot wait!!
Beautiful amazing comic, as always. I want to do the master cleanse as well. I have been thinking about it for a while now... It was nice to see a comic of what might happen!
Are you going to be at mocca?
And you gotta print up "The Fast" for MoCCA!!
Or is it too late? It is too late, isn't it? sigghhhhh...
See ya in the NYC...
