JOIN ME!!! I have a challenge for us... Let's do this for 30 days!! If you fall off just get back up!! But see... We WON'T fall off! Let's prove to ourselves that we are capable of doing this. LET'S BE A TEAM! Let's start living a healthier lifestyle. You even being on this site is already a start. I need some motivation and I can motivate you as well. Let's help eachother out. Let's stop trying and start doing. It may be hard but it isn't impossible. WE can work together and push eachother. On our days when we feel like giving up, let's speak up and seek some words of encouragement. I'm starting today but even if you see this post late, STILL join. I will push you and help you reach your goals. If you're not joining, I would appreciate any advice or any words to motivate or inspire me. I'm on day one and I'm fighting! I'll be posting my recipes and experience day by day until WE reach 30 days. If you stop after 30 days, don't go back to old habits! EAT HEALTHIER and excersice. Do it for your own good. Love yourself enough to make this change. Question for you... Do you want to be happier? Do you want to feel more energy? Live longer? Be able to do things you were never able to? THEN START TODAY AND SEE THE CHANGE YOU WANT TO SEE. I know you want to look into the mirror and see a difference for once. Trust yourself and give this your all. Change begins with YOU. Remember that hard work pays off and great things require hard work. Btw, a BIG thanks to Joe! You helped me start TODAY and stop making excuses.

I want to check-in as often as I can..
It’s 9:31 am EST and just had a green smoothie.. I feel encouraged.
My next one will be at noon. I’m drinking lots of water and may have a fruit.. I’ll be having a carrot juice then.
This RyanBennett below is the i.d. of a spammer, ya'll. Just in case you are not watching "recent activity". For some reason this one added in a couple of replies to other posts. Usually they just join, post one link or so on their own wall, and disappear.
Those spammers are so irritating. All those movie things! I hadn't been on this site for a while and came back a few days ago and was surprised to see them still here. Thought they'd figure out how to get rid of them by now. Oh well, it's worth it to sift through them and find juicing buddies for support on this journey
im so excited! my omega parts for my juicer arrived so I can make them myself now. I bought some fresh made juices at my local grocery store but I ran out. luckily today I got all my ingredients for my mean green juice and a couple other ones.
Tessla, and others, when you get a chance, maybe you could add to the thread we started elsewhere for people who are looking for a juicer. Tell us about your juicer and what you like and don't like? I know I for one am probably up soon for a replacement. I have an expensive one I do not use and want to sell when I get myself together for doing that. I'm using an old cheap centrifugal for my hard stuff like carrots because it just works faster and is easier to clean. But it's not going to last forever. Anyone willing to contribute to the juicer thread (SHOW MY JUICING SETUP) , please do.
When I get a chance I will, mines an omega 8004 and its amazing, I just found out I can also make coconut oil, butter and cream with it. I read somewhere you need fat and eating coconut is good, so I can eat these to replace fat.
Day 2 didn’t go as I had planned..
Good news.. I drank a green smoothie and 2 other juices with fruits & veggies
Not so good news... I totally caved this evening and had some pizza, wings, and cookies.. I think the idea of denying them made me think of them more..
So new plan is that I’ll plan ahead when I can have my treats.. I’ve scheduled it for 2 weeks from now.. I’m not denying them but minimizing intake. Who knows when 2 weeks comes, choosing a healthier option won’t be such a hard thing.
Funny thing is after 2 slices, the other slices were superfluous.. I ended eating it all because I didn’t want to see them.. ???? lol
Another thing is making sure I’m prepared.. I had soups & fish at work (free food).. I think ???? it would be best to stick to food I cook because I know what went in it.. I think all the salt from those soups made me crave more.
Day 3 is nigh.. I have a 16-hr shift at the hospital. I’m arming myself with 2 green smoothies, 2 juices, & one healthy meal I made.
I’ll keep you updated. The goal is creating a sustainable lifestyle change.. It’s progress over perfection.
hang in there.you're not to the juice days yet.
same! i was out doing chores all day and was unable to make my juices so I had soup and I caved in to a slice of cake . But tomorrow is another day! lets get through it together! im not very worried as I finally have my juicing journal set up with my recipes.
Ebele and Tessla,
Hang in there and do NOT GIVE UP. Keep coming and posting and don't give up on the reboot even if you have a problem along the way. Have to be in it for a long term.
Another way to plan ahead for transition days is to find substitutes - plant-based and clean - for those treats. I'm thinking of this because a friend just sent me a photo of a gorgeous veggie homemade one of those things that she made for supper. There are plenty of recipes online.
The point of transition to me is to make it easier for our bodies to detox all the unhealthy junk by transitioning to vegan -- healthy plant based eating -- beforehand (and juice only days will be easier come that time). The point of a reboot is to super load the body with fantastic nutrition so it has what it needs to cure what ails us and get to a healthy state.
This can be done. You can do this. It sometimes takes awhile -- it did for me this last time and will again -- to get transitioned over. Sometimes we have to learn what it takes for us individually. Don't give up. Keep coming.
Keep it up!!!
Day 1 down!!!
Woah!! It was hard!
I had actually gone through the process of ordering pizza, wings, and cookies. What saved me was the fact that my card declined! I am so glad it didn’t go through!
I’m sticking to vegan, plant-based foods and juices. Here is to Day 2.
So far, I’ve had a carrot/ginger juice followed by pear and banana.
Lunch will be green smoothie & green juice
Dinner will be lentil soup and baked plantain
Night cap is tumerc tea with almond milk with vegan, homemade banana cookie.
I’m building up to the only juice days..
Great job!! Keep it up!!!!
30 days today and down 15 lbs. Going to try for another 30 days.
Wow! So proud of you!! Keep going. You’re inspiring me not to give up on myself.
I was pumped too! I think i made it through the first day. I know the next few days are the worst but I'll keep watching inspiring videos to keep me going.
Trying to stay busy at work! reading success stories are helping quite a bit. Made it through my first lunch, feeling focused????
For those starting their juice fast today, don't forget to take your favorite fiber supplement.
