Group RebootsPosted by Overcome smirz on 6 months ago
Hello everyone, I was asked by a few members to share a bit about my juicing journey. I started juicing Feb 26th, 2018. I had a lot of health issues going on. I had high blood pressure 180/100. I was pre-diabetic. I was having problems with my a-fib. I was tired and lethargic all the time. I couldn't drive my own truck because I didn't fit. I had a knee that was constantly swollen and I couldn't bend it. I literally had to sit in the back seat of my own truck while my 70-year-old crippled up dad drove me around and had to do all my errands. My mom and aunt had to do all my grocery shopping. I couldn't walk 10 feet without being out of breath and having to rest. My kids were starting to have to take care of me instead of me them. I basically couldn't get out of bed before the afternoon time, and then I would spend the rest of the day on the couch. I was so heavy that I had to sit down to go pee because if I didn't I would miss the toilet. I couldn't wipe myself so I would have to shower and wash with a long rag between my legs. I didn't care if I was alive or dead. On Feb 19th, 2018 I had a bad break down and couldn't stop crying. Days earlier My son had mentioned that he had seen a documentary at school and he wanted to start juicing. I woke up on Feb 20th, 2018 and watched fat sick and nearly dead 1 and 2. I decided I was going to do this. I was going to change my life. I want to live. I want to be around to see my children grow up. I found a juicer on eBay and it was delivered on the 24th of Feb 2018. On Feb 25th, 2018 my family went shopping for produce, later that night my daughter and I unboxed my juicer and gave it a trial run to see how it worked. I woke up Feb 25th, 2018 and made my first official juice. I have been living the liquid life for 9 months. I juice 3-4 times a day. My juices are 32oz each. I drink a braggs vinegar drink morning and night daily. I drink a gallon of alkaline water daily. I have 4 protein shakes daily. I have 1 scoop of fiber daily. I've been checking my blood every 2 months. I've worked side by side with my doc and two nutritionist since day one. My blood work is all completely normal now. In total, I've lost 300 pounds since Jan 2018. I can walk a mile or two now up hill. I can drive my truck. I can go to the bathroom normally. I can get up and down easily. The list goes on and on. I have a long road ahead still. I need to lose at least another 160 pounds. I will most likely need some skin removal surgery. I will not ever go back to who I was before. I will not stop until I reach my goal. Thank you all for the interest in my juicing journey. I promise you all that you can do anything you put your mind to. Good luck to all of you on your juicing journeys! You got this!!
