    HAPPY FRIDAY!!!! Day 5 here - 8lbs down and I feel great!!!!! Tomorrow I will begin to go to the gym. Pretty excited. I'm only doing the green juice for now- it's just easier for me. Is this ok? Also one concern I do have and this might be TMI for some but who else do I ask? So I started juicing only on Monday and it wasn't until Thursday (yesterday) that I had gone to the bathroom (#2) and haven't gone since. The only thing I could think of is I did do a cleanse the previous weekend to beginning the fast and I really cleaned myself out. Could that be it? I drink LOADS of water throughout the day (around 144 ounces daily) maybe even more. Should I drink some flax or something? Did I mention I feel so good? Less aches and pains already- it's hard to believe I could experience this change so early into my juice feast. I sleep so much better, I don't get up in the middle of the night to use the bathroom (use to get up 2-3x every night) and my energy has increased to where I'm more focused at work (less mistakes). I'm just in awe..... My goal is 10 days but if I still feel like I can continue I most definitely will. I'm going buy a journal and log this incredible journey of mine. I never want to forget it. HAPPY JUICING EVERYONE =)

    Hi, Viviana, just to let you know I was looking for you over on the Juicing Challenge for Beginners group. Hadn't forgotten you were there a few days ago. Maybe ask your questions over there.

    I dunno... my goal is to keep my bowels moving one way or the other, because the first water only fast I didn't, and when I started eating again I reabsorbed all the stuff I'd detoxed but in one fell swoop and got really sick for a few hours -- counterproductive to me and I don't want to do it that way again. (Should have done a cleanse or the coffee enema or something before eating finally.)

    But if you're really juice only, and did a cleanse up front (great idea), maybe there's nothing in your system. RM is doing a series of coffee enemas as she goes along to detox. I've wondered myself about using a psyllium fiber (Metamucil) type once per day or two to keep that happening, but haven't tried it, and don't know if it would interfere with the detox part of a reboot or trigger off the appetite hormones again? If you find out will you let us know on the other groups, please?

    DAY 5, that's just awesome! And sounds like you're getting some RESULTS!

    Been away two days as I battled the monthly She-Demon that lives within me. I was so hormonal you guys it took all my power not to rip peoples' heads off, juice them and make a big batch of idiot juice. LOL. But I'm back and juicing has made the She-Demon weaker. She only stuck around 4 days instead of her usual week. I tricked her with cacao nibs. She was like "CHOC-LIT!" and then she realized it was organic and not sweet and she was confused then I subdued her with peach juice. LOL.



    So I put on a new dress today a 3x (my usual size) and its loose in the belly and the boobs are totally sad. I feel like a 13 year old wondering where my boobs are. Good problems though. Good problems. I'll take these smaller organic boobs and work em! If I gotta get some spanx and some wonder bras at the end of my process then I'll be a taped up, pushed up, squeezed in diva. I'm already married and the saggy boob lady is his problem. LMAO!

    @ Shay, you are one of the few people that can get me laughing so hard it hurts. I am encouraged that your monthly missus was shorter and less painful. Why can't we figure out how to lose weight in areas we do not want, and not in the areas we do want to keep like the boobs? Your hubby is super lucky to have you. You are seeing positive changes already GF. Keep it up.

    I started last week and was on the cleanse for 4 days and then BOOM I ate a burger. I found that I need to reach out to others that are on the juice cleanse and going through what I am so that I have someone to turn to when the cravings become overwhelming. I started back on the cleanse today. I have 110 pounds that I would like to lose and I want to do the cleanse for 100 days, but I am going to focus on each day individually. I would love to find someone in the community to talk to on a daily basis so that we can give each other support.

    @ Sherry, congratulations on putting your health as the number one priority. Having support is critical, especially early on when those carb cravings hit. This support group used to be active and super helpful, but not so much anymore. I recommend you look at three other free reboot groups on this site. You can join as many as you want and most do. The three most active groups are SUNSHINE CLUBBE, JUICING CHALLENGE FOR BEGINNERS, HAPPY JUICING 2018.

    I recommend you post daily and share your goals and health challenges. We will be there for you. Do you have questions I can answer today?

    Hi Sherry. It happens. This is a process. Its not going to click overnight and long time rebooters have lapses. Its about being kind to yourself and working on the mental aspects of how you got to that point of the burger to your lips and what you could have done differently so when you run into that situation again or see it approaching you can swerve away from it. Ok you ate a burger. Or you eat something you should, then your next thought should be ok I ate the burger. I am not a bad person just a person. Lace up your shoes and go for a walk to walk that burger down and get right back on juice and flush it out. Its years of mental stuff we have to train out of our psyches.

    @ Shay, you are so right. Sometimes it is a day to day process, hour to hour process, and when it is tough it can be minute to minute process. Message to Sherry and Shay: you are worth it.

    Well Day 3 of juice only. OMG the demons flying out of this closet. I'm facing all my stuff. Each gram of fat has some drama with it. I have found I'm kind of attached to eating. I never looked at it that way. I have to figure out why I'm so attached to chewing. I'm getting all my nutrients but the at of just fork/spoon and plate/bowl is a thing. But on an amazing tip. Beet juice is like Cocaine. LMAO. I'm hooked on it now.

    Hi Treesee. I got on the scale after my "trial week" and I lost 2.7kgs ( 6lbs). I have not gotten on the scale again. I'm trying to not make this about what my scale says but how I'm feeling and how my clothes fit. I will step on the scale again on day 30 and again at day 60 because if it doesnt say what i want it to say then I dont want to feel like a failure and that's not what my journey is about. I am using this time to address the underlying reasons of why I'm obese. I figure if I get that sorted then the weight will stay off in the long run. Until then though, what do you think things will be like when you are 100lbs lighter. What do you see yourself doing?

    Hi ShayVibes,

    Congrats on completing your trial week. I'm also using the health benefit method to monitor my juicing. If i feel better and my clothing becomes loose, I'm on the right track. I like your comment about the scale and guilt. Personally, I use the scale to justify eating so, any loss is like a red flag to have a "cheat" day. Good luck and "carry on."

    Hi Highschoolskinny. Yeah. scale guilt sabotages me so I have to minimize its importance since so many factors have to be taken into account of a day's weight.

    Hi Shay,

    I am a former anorexic and had serious concerns about loosing weight before the reboot. Not because I thought I was in danger of a relapse but because I didn't want the, pardon me for saying it this way, brain fuck of how thin am I going to get and calories and all the rest that comes with that rabbit hole.

    I have been recovered from anorexia for over 10 years. I had to learn to eat again after forcing myself not to for years and years. I went through a period of time when I just literally could not stop eating sometimes. I hated myself for every binge, every craving, how fat I was getting, on top of feeling miserable because I ate until I was sick and had to sleep it off,. Since then I have reshaped my relationship with food and learned how to cook wonderful good for you food.

    I was recently diagnosed with food allergies to soy and I am also a celiac. I don't know how much of a label reader you are but trust me they're in everything. I kept rebelling against the restrictions because I wanted what I wanted and I just didn't care. That was the big reason I did the reboot. To reset my body and get nutrition I was starved for. Now that I am in the reboot transition cycle and getting off of medications and so on, I know it is truly possible to eat with the aim of feeling better and that I crave those things and am not interested in all the food I cannot eat. But the special bonus is that I am not obsessed with loosing weight. Don't get me wrong it thrills me to pieces, but its not a diet its how I live. Stick with it and the need to chew will fade. When it hits me hard, I dring veggie broth with razor thin minced green onion and lemon juice. I can chew the onion and its warm and filling. Oh and it smells like wonton soup. Juice on!

    Well, I started my journey on June 1st, here I am a month later and still going. At the end of my first month I am down 21 lbs and 19 inches. I felt great the first 17 days. Since then I have been experiencing issues, all detox related I'm sure. But, I'm not giving up or giving in. I am committed to see through my 120day plan. I'm 1/4 of the way there! Hoping to lose 100lbs during that time. Hope you all are doing well!

    Congratulations Treesee,

    That's awesome! What an inspiration you are. Hopefully, the detox related issues will pass and you will fully enjoy the benefits of juicing. Can't wait to read your updates. Happy juicing!

    WOW!! Congratulations Treesee! That is so impressive! I just started my 100 day journey today. The longest cleanse I have been on is 3 weeks. I'm really hoping to make it the full 100 days this time around.

    Anyone out there experienced candida/thrush while juicing? I've cut my fruit intake back to 20%. Any other suggestions, advice or experience with this would be welcomed! Thanks in advance.

    Hi, Treesee. Years ago, before the birth of my son, I pulled a foot muscle on a hike and it got inflamed... the doc gave me a steroid shot in my ankle (which helped the pain for 1.5 days total but suppressed my immune system). I started getting sick, caught 5 colds and viruses in a couple of months, for which he gave me antibiotics. Diff times. Either the steroid of the resulting antibiotics had ruined my immune system. Then, I ended up with the mother of all candida infections, systemically. My son was born with thrush.

    The obgyn at the time only gave us one dose of the most powerful anti-fungal meds of the time (Diflucan), then waited too long, then gave them again... while they had worked the first time, I ran out of the med before it was taken care of. The lactation consultants repeatedly told him and other docs that it would take a sustained 30 days worth to fix... but he repeatedly waited to extend it. (Insurance rules?). So I developed a resistance to those meds and anything they could throw at us.

    At the suggestion of the lactation consulting, I finally tried a homeopathic combination remedy of candida albicans and other candida varieties. It knocked it out right away, a miracle. And over the next six months, my immune system was restored. If you want to know more, or have questions, send me a message. I'll try to point you toward what helped me or some variety of it.

    Hi Treesee,

    No, not while juicing. Thrush can get nasty and spread to the throat or esophagus, you may need traditional medication on this one.

    Soose, thank you so much! I am going to make a trip tomorrow to see my favorite health and nutrition store and see if the have those homeopathics. I am sure this is related to my digestive system needing to heal after years of eating poorly. I just don't know how to fix it and I am frustrated!!! Thanks again!!!

    Highschoolskinny, so glad you made it back to start!



    Hey, did you see the thread I started, for those who don't have a juicer yet?




    (Started because I kept seeing people come in who were ready to start but they'd ordered a juicer and it was going to take awhile, or they didn't have the resources to get a juicer at that time.)



    Something there might also work when or if a juicer part breaks.

    Hi Soose,

    I did not see your thread, thanks for the heads up. Crazy, to break the housing, I accidentally dropped it while washing. Good to be back!

    So I watched my 600lb life last night to give myself motivation. I will not give up, give in or go silently into the night. Good morning rebooters! *Rattles the blankets* I'm going to keep posting until kindred spirits in the group speak back and even after then.
