Day 32-Still going strong but?

Group Reboots

Posted by Bob on 5 years ago

Today begins 32 days on the reboot. I have lost 25 pounds and feel wonderful!

My next goal is either 40 or 60 days.

I am stuck in my mind though because I am on a weight loss plateau. I have read several articles saying this will pass and I truly believe that.

In my mind, I am feeling guilty if I eat during Christmas because I wouldn't have reached my goal.

Has anyone experienced this feeling of regardless how much progress you have made, it's never enough?

Thanks,

Bob

    First off, yes, you WILL break through the plateau, just hang in there. I've coached a few people through long term juice fasts and it seems that EVERYONE who goes for more than 20 days or so, ends up plateauing at some point. It's so frustrating because we are so used to letting the number on the scale determine how much or how little success we've had. I know you didn't ask advice on breaking through the plateau, but I usually find that if you really switch things up for a day or two, your body will respond. For instance, when I hit my plateau, I was drinking about 3 servings of juice a day, mostly green juices, and a TON of water. So for one or two days, I had four juices a day, 2 of them being green based and 2 being more fruit based and oddly enough, adding an extra sweeter juice helped me. I think sometimes out bodies get "stuck" in a rut and changing things up seems to help most people.

    And yes, I think part of the "it's never enough" is just part of being human. We always want more, bigger, better, ect. Just stop and take a look at all you've accomplished. You've made it 31 days without eating food! You've made the healthy decision to pick juice over unhealthy foods and you know absolutely everything that went into your body for over the last month! Not many people can say that!

    You've got to listen to your body. If your body is telling you to keep going and to reach that 40 or 60 days, then do it! But if your body is telling you that it's had enough and you are ready to start reintroducing foods into your diet, then start slowly. Only you will know when you've reached your goal....and it doesn't have to be a certain number of days, either.

    You are a ROCKSTAR for going over 30 days! Be proud of yourself. It's quite the accomplishment!

    Bob,

    You are like my new hero for going 32 days! I like reading that right now because I'm on Day 9 and it's been a struggle. I've been feeling nauseated and tired.of juice but no cravings for anything else luckily...just blah....did it ever get easier for you? I am so hoping it does for me.

    I can tell you that I'm exactly the same way.....I should be thrilled that not only have I not gained weight in the last week but I've lost 10 lbs in just over a week. That should be something that makes me feel proud of myself but I've got 50 to lose and it just can't happen fast enough.

    Have you thought about your how you will eat now that you have lost so much weight? I know you want to keep it off and lose some more? I think you need to give yourself a break because you can enjoy your holiday any way you want and you know that no matter what you have the tools to see that you stay on your journey. The opening of your post says it all....I've lost 25lbs and I feel wonderful. You should! This is the hardest thing I've done honestly.

    2 golden delicious apples and half of a lemon as your first juice after a liter of water is yummy and may be helpful to add in the morning...it gets things moving. :-)

    Cheers, Ali
