Group Reboots

Posted by TeelaHerman.com on 6 years ago I will be starting a 40 day juicing fast to go along with lent. Is anyone else out there planning the same thing? This will be my first fast so I am going to need lots of support.

    Tovah, Yes, thankfully he is mostly recovered. We started out in June being told that he had very aggressive bone cancer. It turns out that it was not cancer, just a benign tumor. However, there were complications and what was originally supposed to be a 2-3 day hospital stay turned into an almost 2 week ICU stay. After about 9 blood transfusions, they were able to stabilize him but there was about 2 days in there where it got really, really scary. Then, when he came home he was unable to do ANYTHING. He needed my help just to urinate (never mind all the other things....) and having 3 small kids to take care of on top of that....it was a really intense 6 months for me. Anyway, he is almost back to 100% thankfully. Looking back, I had a severe case of caregiver burnout and I wish I had a support group to lean on at the time. I haven't officially started yet. I am going to start this Wednesday. I got my juicer a couple weeks ago and I've just been replacing breakfast every morning and then sometimes lunch or dinner. I don't snack anymore because if I feel like snacking, I'll make myself a juice. The the last 2 weeks without really changing my diet, I've lost about 5 lbs. I've been blogging my journey so far and I think it's helping me stay accountable. We are all in this together. I've finally realized that just because I've spent years and years making poor eating decisions does NOT mean that today has to be the same. Every single day is a new chance to start over. We can do this!!! I know that support is going to mean EVERYTHING! Teela http://my40dayjuicefast.blogspot.com/

    Tovah, I meant to ask, how is your husband doing now? Is he still in the hospital? I will be thinking and praying for you both.

    I am in....this will be my 2nd and my longest reboot. I am going for 15 days. I will officially start tomorrow and this time I will be with a group which should make it easier. A word to newbies I found that it would be easier once you have been on the juicing for atleast 10 days if you haven't achieved the results you want stay on the fast longer. It is a lot easier than beginning again although you are more prepared for the fast. Best to all...you can do it mind over matter!!! P.S. You're worth it :-)

    LFox7, welcome!! I can already tell that this is going to be an amazing group of supportive people. I actually thought the same thing about the 10 day + fast. I'm really looking forward to transforming my life. I can already tell the difference in my taste buds and I've not started the full fasting yet! Teela

    Hi Everybody! The Breville Juice Fountain came last night, and today I put it together and gave it a whirl! The juicer itself is pretty easy to figure out even for a mechanically-challenged person like myself. It's not the high-end Breville but it's excellent anyway. Before watching the movie I was going to save up for a fancy Vitamix and am glad I got this one. The pulp stuff is really dry, and you're not eating the "bulk," so I'm sure this is a big reason for the weight loss. ANYWAY, I decided to "prep" everything first. Yesterday I went to a farm store and got what they had--lettuce, tomatoes, grapefruit, oranges, a lemon; then I went to Vons for carrots, apples, cucumbers, a red pepper, and three orange beets. I figure I'll just get what I find and work with that. It took at least 10 minutes, maybe more, to wash and peel stuff. I peeled the cucumbers; the green stuff just seemed like PEEL to me--is that what you folks do? I made 2 juices: 1. 3 Carrots,1 Apple, 4 little Oranges, 1 beet. The juice was a pretty orange color, very appetizing-looking That made enough for 2 red plastic cups (disposable--the kind you get when you have a party) full, and I drank the juice with crushed ice, which made it pretty good. Note to self: Beets are not "All That." I didn't like the beet taste--it sort of took over. Juice #2 Lettuce, 2 cucumbers, 8 small tomatoes, 1/2 lemon, 2 apples, 1/2 red pepper. I have not tasted it, but it's NOT the pretty green bright stuff from the movie; it looks gross. Maybe peeling cucumbers is not the way to go. Will report on the flavor later. The 2 glasses of juice have filled me up for now. Will drink the greener one later and hope it also fills me up. Looking forward to hearing how all of you are doing!!

    Greetings everyone. I would like to be considered for this group as well. I did a 30 day juicing fast starting January 1 with another group on this forum, had great support, and lost 20#. I'd like to start another juicing fast (feast) and this group looks interesting. I still have another 40-50 pounds to lose. Look forward to sharing information that I've learned along the way and other information. Josie's mom in San Diego

    I'm going to start on Friday so I have the weekend to feel lethargic. I'm in nursing school and our clinicals are grueling so I can't be sluggish. Can you guys post your 2 favorite recipes? I need help formulating my menu!

    Hello @joisesmom look forward to hearing from you. I am going for a 15-20 day fast depending on when I reach my goal.
