DESPERATE NOT TO FAIL - ADVICE?

Group Reboots

Posted by NewRach on 4 years ago

I have to admit- I am terrified. Not of being hungry... not of trying new things... of failing... of feeling sick. Feeling sick is my weakness- I HATE IT. I know if I push through the first 3 or so days I will feel better- any advice????

    I just finished my first week and while there were a few tough times, it's pretty empowering.

    Just take it one day at a time, one hour if you need to. You won't feel sick, and if you do have another juice with a little more fruit at first.

    Don't worry. It's not rocket science, the recipes don't need to be exact. You can do it!

    If you get a headache, drink more water. That was my problem at first and I think I was dehydrated.

    The forum is a great support. Best of luck!

    Thank you sooo much, Sherry- that was just what I needed to hear!

    What groups are you in? Any that you recommend?

    It's my pleasure. I'm in one other group: http://community.rebootwithjoe.com/discussions/top... If the link doesn't work it called February Reboot.

    I lost 5 pounds my first week. I don't have a huge amount to lose (25 pounds) so I was really happy with that. I did eat one small plant based meal and had a handful of almonds a few times.

    I remember what Joe Cross said in the 1st movie about a person who may have tried but failed, "good on you. Good on you for trying." Take on day at a time, one hour at a time if necessary. Somewhere between days 5-9 you'll have an epiphany, it's not that hard. :)

    Thanks pstar! You are right. :) I think it is all in my head (that is where BOTH success and failure live, right?). I just kept thinking, "What if I am the only person in the WORLD who physiologically cannot live on micronutrients for 30 days?" Since I have now heard myself say that out loud, I realize how ridiculous it sounds.

    It's much harder being fat! If you keep trying you haven't failed, you are learning. Read read read, try try try.

    Watch fsnd 1 and 2 for inspiration. Again and again. Go to bed early. Drink lemon water. Read all the posts on the website. Soon you will not be hungry at all.

    Hi NewRach. I am also terrified of failing. I just keep reminding myself that others have successfully completed 60 day juice fasts and if they can do it, then so can I. It's not going to be easy. Have you started your juice fast yet?

    Janet- I start 2/17 (tomorrow). I keep reminding myself of the same thing. "What one man can do... another can do!" We will have to keep reminding each other. ;)

    I just had my last juice a few minutes ago. Today is day 2 for me. My experience so far: I don't feel very hungry if I stay away from food. Not feeling very energetic. But overall it's not so bad and I'll do it again tomorrow. I want to do as many days as I can, but I'm taking it one day at a time.

    Before my first juice fast I always associated hunger pangs with pain, therefore I never would let myself feel a hunger pang and therefore have dealt with weight problems my whole life. I now can say "hello to my little friend" the hunger pang. It means my stomach is shrinking. I now know the difference between a hunger pang and a full blown stomach ache and also the difference between a hunger pang and just plain being hungry. They are not the same. When you get used to it, it doesn't hurt at all. You just hear it kind of.
