    Totally a newbie here and looking forward to losing all this weight (once again) and reclaiming my health from an underactive thyroid and hormone issues due to my age. Depression leaving would be nice too. Just reserved a Breville juicer and will pick it up tonight. Next up….getting the right foods in the house and get juicing! Any suggestions for getting started?Thankfully the hubby and at least my daughter will be joining me, but obviously I will be the one more long-term due to the additional weight goal.

    Well aren't you one lucky lady to have both your hubby and daughter joining you in this venture!!! Are you going straight to juicing without the first 5 days of transitioning into it? Have you cut out coffee? I cut out meat and coffee and all pasta/bread/rice about 5 days before getting started with straight juicing, and found I had just a minor headache on day #1, otherwise the transition was pretty painless. Make sure you have that coconut water to have as your morning snack (16oz) it really does aid us in a positive manner. Have some vegetable stock on hand... I LOVED being able to sip on something warm 'cause you will feel cold for the first week or so. At least I did.

    Wishing you well on your journey!

    I'm on day four currently :) not particularly hungry, just foggy and missing food. Trying not to weigh myself again until next Monday when I hit the 7 day mark. Fingers crossed. I have well over 100lbs to lose so I'm aiming for the 60 days, taking it one day at a time.

    Good job on getting to Day #4 Oddly, I have found that researching recipes for when I come off of my 30 day reboot has helped fill the food void most days LOL Good willpower staying off of the scale. You're likely in for a lovely surprise come day #8 :-)

    93 lbs to go... my mom says you will look back next year and have it accomplished. I hope she's right!

    Hi Sick n Tired,

    I am just starting to get back into the idea of juicing again after 8 months away from a 60 day diabetic reboot, and I read that you are doing the elimination diet....assuming that is the 1st 5-7 days before juicing starts....I think that is great, and I am interested to know more...When I did my juicing reboots, first was a 15 day and then the 60 day, i did lose about 1/2 the weight I did lose on that first 5-7 days....not quite committed to a full on juicing regime yet, but getting into the mood!!! Cheers Roz

    Hey Roz, I am glad you are thinking of making some changes. Do you have diabetes? If so I would recommend reading up on some articles like this one for example.

    http://www.rebootwithjoe.com/sugar-shock-juicing-w...

    The elimination diet I am doing is something from my Doctor. It is similar to the 5 day plan before you reboot. Lots of veggies. I am trying to fix a thyroid issue. I wanted to do the guided reboot coming up, but will have to catch the next one. But if you just repeated that 5 day food plan, I am sure you will see a lot of differences.

    Today is Day 7 of the 2nd week on the elimination diet. I will weigh in tomorrow and see the score. I bought this Thyroid series called "The Thyroid Secret". I have watched them all and now I have friends that have been told to just take a pill for the rest of their lives that want to see it. Tonight we will all watch the 1st in the series. It was Dr. Wentz who told me I needed an MD that practices functional medicine. She put the whole series out there for free and answered questions. It was a relief to hear someone actually say it's possible for thyroiditis/Hashimoto's to go into remission. I really hope the series helps my friends relize they may need to change their MD.



    Here's a V8 juice I found online. Makes 16 oz:



    5 tomatoes



    1 beet (greens optional, but I left them out), cut in wedges



    4 long carrots



    1 bunch of spinach, equal to 2 cups



    5 celery stalks



    1 small bunch of parsley, about ¼ cup



    • Like it salty-er? Add more celery.



    • Like it mostly tomato based? Add more tomatoes.



    • Want more greens? A handful of lettuce or watercress won’t change the taste too much.



    • Add black pepper for a kick.



    • Add a lime wedge to the recipe or to the glass.



    • Add a dash of cayenne pepper or hot sauce for heat and health benefits.




    You may not like the strong parsley taste, so just add less and put kale or spinach in.



    Here's another one from this website

    Hi, everyone. Great to read your posts and catch up! <3



    Fin- I envy your new juicer! Gadgets are fun and a good juicer is so worth it. Mine's about 10 years old, haha.



    SDH & Sick N Tired - Shred it, girls! You are amazing!



    Wendy- What a great daughter. You are racking up a trove of karma! Hang in there and juice on!



    I am back from 12 days in Europe and stayed on my fast. Today is Day 30 and weight loss of 20 pounds. I can tell you the vacay almost broke me several times. The supervisor me who sets down all the rules, the ID me who wants to eat everything, and the me caught in the middle had to come together and have a group cry. It's astounding how many emotions surround food. At times I was furious, self-pitying, elated, apathetic - what a roller coaster! IT'S JUST A PIECE OF CHEESE! But it's not just a piece of cheese, it's all the mental and emotional content attached to that piece of cheese. My lord, the decadent European meals I had to sit through while sipping mint tea. I will never forgive mint tea. Do you hear me, mint tea?!! However I am going to offer thanks to the universe right now as it would gift me a juice bar - POOF right in my foot path - just when the situation was getting dire and I thought I would not be able to find juice. Now the new challenge is staying true to the 60-day goal even though my weight loss has completely stalled. I lost all 20 of the pounds in the first two weeks, and the last two weeks the scale has not budged. I'm wondering if I will even make a 30-pound weight loss on the 60-day fast...

    Maddog: I am astounded by your will power. That cheese would have made me cave. Good for you. Now that's commitment and determination. I am just wonder about your weight ... stall... sometimes we aren't drinking enough juice. I posted this elsewhere on this form, but it's recommended to drink 5 x 500 mls. and when you are hungry or just needing something else, maybe even more. Also, a variety is important. Where you able to keep hydrated with coconut water? Do you drink coconut water? And how about just water? How's that going? It seems strange that you didn't loose anything for 2 weeks, even though you have been sticking with it.

    Welcome back! I hope you had an amazing vacation.

    Hm I don't drink coconut water because it makes me think I'm drinking suntan lotion, living here in Florida! I guess I will have to try it again-- what does it do for you? Whoa, I drink nowhere near 5 x 500 mls = 80 ounces. I would say I drink about 48 ounces or (3) 16 ounce juices at meal times. I have never gotten a break from hunger, either. Variety - I mostly stick to green juices only. I struggle to stay hydrated but drink at least a half gallon of water a day. OK, let me try some of the things you are suggesting this week! Thanks!

  • Sick'n'Tired

    The coconut water helps to keep you hydrated because it has natural electrolytes. Like if you get leg cramps, they say eat a banana, but if you drink coconut water, it has even more potassium and is even better than a banana. I find the coconut water has to be cold or it's just gross.

    They say along with the green juices you should switch it up. One day have an orange drink, the next a red. Also, sometimes we want something savory. I find making a V8 type of juice with tomatoes, carrots, basil, ect... hits the spot. Or when you have a sweet craving, I make just a pineapple juice or an apple juice or just an orange juice. It hits the spot. Maybe we should start sharing recipes. I will add one to my post above.

    Increase your intake of juice, try coconut water and drink lots of water and watch that weight move. There are special plans for if you are diabetic and if you have a thyroid issue. There's a guided reboot coming up on the 30th I was going to join, but because I just started this new plan with a new doctor, I will wait for the next one.

    Sick'n'Tired, you are amazing. To go through all that on your vacation and you did it. What's wrong with just buying a V8 juice ? I have feeling that was a dumb question. Good luck and keep on juicing.

    seems like everyone is juicing on this week, im glad to be back from vaca last week, and my new juicer came in! people think im crazy to spend so much on annother gadget? they dont understand how commited i feel to my health, to get all those vitamins and mineral, to feel soo darn good everyday! one of these days im going to take a picture of all that produce before i juice it and show people because i got to tell you, no one eats that amount in a given day! no one! im starting a new 6 day fast, with cabbage soup, if i get hungry. hopefully ill transition to juice only, maybe by next week, but the soup guarentees ill have no problem getting healthier this week so im going with that plan! nice to be back!



    wendy- the vaca was one year since we had lost our dad, he was 87, was bittersweet. i miss the parents- alot! we toasted the old man as all my brother and sisters and spouses were there (family of 12 children) its good to miss them, its comforting in its way, but i dont feel they want you to hurt. god bless!
