Starting my journey tomorrow....I'm nervous

Reboot Newbies

Posted by Denise on 4 years ago

I'm starting my quest to get healthy tomorrow. I'm nervous, scared actually. Scared to fail. I'm 50 years old & am really over weight. I'm also going through menopause. I have constant knee pain. My back hurts, I don't sleep well. I'm tired. No, I'm not tired. I'm exhausted. I've gone past the tired stage. I have high blood pressure & acid reflux. I take pills for water retention. I take 6 pills a day. I hate taking pills, but at this stage I need them. I want to be able to walk without pain & without shortness of breath. I allowed myself to become this size. I did this to myself. I need to change this. My youngest son told me, no he begged me to watch Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead. I did & what an eye opener. Today I bought the juicer & all the fruits & veggies I need. Saw my doctor & he's on board for me to do this. I'd like to go 60 days, but for now I'm going for 10. I don't want to put too much pressure on myself. So, any help or advice from any of you would be so appreciated. What have you found that has helped or hindered you?

    I read your story. I am so glad you took the step to open-up and to share with our community your life experience. But don't be too hard on yourself. You mentioned several times that you did this to yourself. While that may or may not be true; you've done the best that you can in a world where everything bad for you is readily available. Most people just haven't been taught to eat healthy. This is a learning process for many of us. But the victory is found in learning what needs to be done and then doing it! And that's where you are! God bless and I hope you achieve a better sense of wellness as you progress in your juicing.

    Warm regards,

    Oh thank you so much Kinisha! Bless you sweetheart. I just made some mean green juice & was surprised at how good it taste! You're right, I wasn't taught how to eat healthy. I'm learning & I will listen to my body from now on :)

    Hugs,

    Yes, and our bodies do speak to us! Not sure of how we miss what our bodies are saying but by the time our bodies are shouting, kicking and screaming; we need meds. Or even worse, there is permanent damage. God help us! Lol.

    Hello there,

    Remember there is no "fail"

    You will be adding lots of fruit an Veg to your life! How good is that?

    The first day is the hardest, get through that and each day gets easier. Just keep extending

    as you go.

    For me I needed the Ap as a tracker, also I got sick of cleaning the juicer so I'd make two barches at once, put the second in the fridge.

    They taste soooo much better cool to me, throw in a couple of cubes to chill.

    Just power through day one, your a mom you can do this....

    Thanks for your words of encouragement Dbrownie. I know I need to do this. I also know that the first few days will be tough. I have to do this! So I will :)

    Hi smokeless Joe,

    15 days? Wow! That's awesome! Keep up the good work. I'm going for 10. I'm hosting a party on the 24th & then again on Feb 1st. So my goal is to do 10 days & then try to go for 30 days or possibly 60 starting Feb 2nd. I made some mean green tonight & I liked it which surprised me because although I love cucumbers I don't like the smell of them lol. I am still searching for more recipes that appeal to me. So if you like other ones besides the mean green please pass them along :)

    Smiles,

    Denise

    I agree there cant be a fail when youre making a life style change. Our attitude has to change as well. Its gitta go from i screwed this up ....to.....I can do better, I deserve better, no?

    Yes the ftirst couple weeks are tough but I think you'll be surprised how great you feel and after the 10 days you'll want to continue that feeling of control, lightness and peace.

    Good luck!
