JOIN ME!!! I have a challenge for us... Let's do this for 30 days!! If you fall off just get back up!! But see... We WON'T fall off! Let's prove to ourselves that we are capable of doing this. LET'S BE A TEAM! Let's start living a healthier lifestyle. You even being on this site is already a start. I need some motivation and I can motivate you as well. Let's help eachother out. Let's stop trying and start doing. It may be hard but it isn't impossible. WE can work together and push eachother. On our days when we feel like giving up, let's speak up and seek some words of encouragement. I'm starting today but even if you see this post late, STILL join. I will push you and help you reach your goals. If you're not joining, I would appreciate any advice or any words to motivate or inspire me. I'm on day one and I'm fighting! I'll be posting my recipes and experience day by day until WE reach 30 days. If you stop after 30 days, don't go back to old habits! EAT HEALTHIER and excersice. Do it for your own good. Love yourself enough to make this change. Question for you... Do you want to be happier? Do you want to feel more energy? Live longer? Be able to do things you were never able to? THEN START TODAY AND SEE THE CHANGE YOU WANT TO SEE. I know you want to look into the mirror and see a difference for once. Trust yourself and give this your all. Change begins with YOU. Remember that hard work pays off and great things require hard work. Btw, a BIG thanks to Joe! You helped me start TODAY and stop making excuses.

DAY #21 - WEEK #3
well I'm a women...and you have to leave room for the week that your body is crazy, hormonal, cycle, moods...whatever your body is experience, "RIDE THE WAVE" but don't fall off...respect it, and you will be on board.
I experience the most craziest ride these pass few days and my body didn't want to eat, but wanted something different.....so I had to be creative with juices...but I just couldn't drink somethings, lol...they taste like "DIRT"...ok....then i tried fruits more in the juice....i didn't like them either, my pallet and taste buds had changed....
I tried a pinch of salt on my hand because my stomach was sour and weird like...so because I didn't want juice I had three days with water only.....now let me say...NOT ONE TIME DID I WANT a CHEESEBURGER...Not once did I want to stop...i just needed something different and I didn't know how to please my body...on one of the days I craved beefjerky...lol, I don't know the last time I ate that - my cells must've scrapped that off an organ....anyway
TODAY...i juiced everything in my fridge and began again my regiment....but one thing I hated and couldn't juice it (I drank an 8 oz glass but never again) was a red cabbage, carrot and celery...nope, never....So here I am with a red cabbage and I freeze all the vegetables that I cut like celery, carrots, any so when I need a broth I have them...(YT - Martha Stewart and TDG*.....looking for vegetable broth and today I made three ...(a spinich - good, a veggie- Good and a red cabbage carrot, celery - good) I will be adding broth next week as a 16 oz juice....

This was a long message...its Sunday, I'm on my last week + 2 days....so I had to share...forgive me...i hope this helps someone.
Day 2: I woke up still feeling under the weather, although I did have a better night sleep, and although I'm still feeling weak and fatigued, I'm definitely feeling better than the last few days.
I feel like I have hit rock bottom, physically, psychologically, and financially, so there is only one way to go but up. I have been praying for a support group to help me get re-energized and I think I found it.
Last night, I prepared this morning's juice (spinach, kale, ginger, necartine + Green Vibrance). Had it first thing this morning along with my vitamins. Also made myself chicken broth with cilantro. I'm resting in bed, which is something I probably should have done earlier in the week, but was too "macho" to allow my body to recuperate.
I consider myself blessed to have found this community.
I'm going to call today the first day of the rest of my life. I had a terrible cold this week and felt absolutely terrible physically and psychologically. I felt like the "biggest loser", but not like the TV program.
I'm a male over 50 and "skinny fat". I have experienced insomnia most of my adult life and take sleeping medication. I'm tired of being "skinny fat". I'm tired of feeling tired. I owe it to my wife, my business, and myself to be in optimal health.
I've been looking to find something like this for awhile now. I'm hoping and praying that being a part of this community will give me the inspiration I need to follow a plant-based diet that is proven to work. Like Joe says in the movie, I need to move from "I know" to 'I do!".

Hi, hope you're doing well! I just joined today, need to get to the store and start juicing. I'm approaching 50 (47) and "skinny fat" too. I used to be an aerobics kickboxing instructor, but when kids came along 11 years ago, I rarely every even walk, let alone exercise. I'm TIRED / EXHAUSTED . ALL . THE . TIME!!! I hate it. It's a struggle to get through every day, and I'm a mother, an elementary teacher, and a wife. I'm so tired of the struggle... just wanted to say I know how you feel and wish you the best!
okay....let me update you
...my past few days...
since 7/26...4 days ago, I was going through something and I just didn't and couldn't juice, my body shut down....okay that day I made sure I drank 1/2 my body in water...and i began to drink "Ballerina Herbal Tea" I purchaed online from Walmart....so the Next day....it happened again...instead of fighting it ...i decided to "RESPECT" what was happening and don't make a fuss....i didn't have a desire to eat food, so I wasn't tempted to eat....Well, it's been 4 days and I haven't juiced or never was tempted to eat, I made sure I drank my water and because I needed a quick pick me up, at 2AM....I had to go somewhere, I drank a glass of welch's juice.
Not once have i desired to eat or chew...i think the tea, took my appetite because I've been going to the bathroom and let's just say, i don't understand how my body was eliminating, when I wasn't eating a thing....so the Tea was working....
Tomorrow, no matter what I'm going to force myself to juice 64 oz....and my water...i only have 12 more days to go....
I wasn't sure if this was common or not, but I can tell you, in my life time, I have never went 4 days without eating....!
I saw the documentary this past Sunday. Did a little research on Monday. Bought veggies and fruit Monday. Started making juice Tuesday. I'm finishing my 5th day. Watched the second documentary and bought the book today. I'm at the part where it says sign up for community help - so - I'm here! In my head I hear 15 days. But in my head I hear, if I can do 15- I can do 30. We shall see ????????
