    Hi Honey. I,m starting today as well. Wishing you every success for the 3 days. Did you start today? I am hoping to complete 30 days. Had my breakfast mean green juice this AM. Not bad. Have juiced enough for the whole day. Need to get the next 2 days done today. Then I can relax. Juicing is taking a while to do. Need to buy up for the next 2 days. Hoping to get it all done within the next 2 hours. :)

    Tammy! Ups and Downs seem to be order of the day for us this year. I think your friends scale is broke. haha. My doctor's scale is always higher. I think they keep the scale high so they can make us depressed and they get to order us depression/anxiety meds, and in turn get a free trip to the Caymen Islands by the pharmaceutical companies. (or not.haha)



    I bought an inverter for the truck and on the road with son traveling down in NC. Now I can blend on the road. Finally get back to healthy eating on the go. I am trying to out how to do walks in different towns we go into. Need safe walk paths, but being unsure of the location, I don't want to walk into a dangerous location.



    Hope to check in daily. Hope everyone checks in. Like to see some familar faces!

    Glad to hear you're getting back on track. Pictures to come soon. I have been working out since last week. There's another guided reboot foe Thyroid conditions coming up but I am not sure if I will join. I want to, just have to plan and schedule. My classes start at 8 AM this semester. I am so not a morning person.

    Hi everyone.



    I did a 60 day juice fast two years ago. starting at a weight of 370 lbs :( . I'm not sure how much weight I lost during my juice fast but as of today I weigh 257 lbs so over a hundred pounds in a two year period. I've gone up and down and up and down. Usually in a 10lb area. Meaning I would be 310 pounds bouncing around between 301 , 307, 309, 302, then finally falling between 290 and 300. then bouncing around from 290, 299, 294, 296, until i finally drop into the 280's. I find it funny actually. But at least once I drop to the next 10lb area I don't go back up. But it can take a while.



    I've had to come to terms with my eating addiction. and intense desire to have immediate results. I am not a clean eater by any means although I try eat plant based whole foods mostly, i still struggle with a sugar addiction. So I try to stay away from sugar, not always successful.



    I'm back to go for another juice feast :D. I'm going to do 5 days at a time. The first 5 days will be a smoothie in the morning and juice the rest of the day. I'm hoping to be just juicing the next 5 days. I have a tendency of setting goals I can't achieve so Im keeping it simple :D.



    I'm happy to be back, looking to drop my stomach weight as that is where i carry most of my weight.



    big hugs to everyone and here is to success

    So the summer hasn't been as bad as I thought. Since May I only put on 11 lbs. I just came into the city and weighed myself this morning. I went from 215 lbs to 226 lbs. I was worried because when I checked on a friend's scale last week it said 232 lbs. (YIKES) I think their scale was off.



    I have just about completed all renos, made sure I had all my registrations in and have a few more things to tie up then I am back to my summer home to finish the renos and start walking the hills there. The hills there are very challenging. I will have to post a video, especially B row. I'm not sure a video will do the hills any justice, but there are 12 rows and the majority of them have inclines of 15 to 25 degrees. I will be sweating, huffing and puffing. Getting ready for a juice fast after I come back from visiting the newest member of our family. My cousins daughter just welcomed her 3rd boy into the world over the weekend. He's just adorbs. I plan on visiting there next week and then the juice fast is on!



    I am taking out some of the shelves in my fridge and putting in buckets like they do at Booster Juice. I will rearrange my drawers so that all my green leafy goodness can go at the top instead of the bottom. I'll take a pic when I am done. Should be a great start to the school year. I hope my concentration improves.



    I hope you are all enjoying your summer.

    Hello, Rebooters! I just joined this group today because I'm inspired by your stories, commitment, and encouragement.



    I started juicing and transitioning (slow transition) to a plant-based diet back in July. Between Joe's films and the film Food Matters, I was ready to change my lifestyle. I am dealing with inflammation and diabetes, and high blood pressure as well. Back a few months ago, my doctor told me "you are going to die soon." My only option? Bariatric surgery. I think she was trying to scare me straight, but that didn't work with me. I am not getting surgery, and I told her that. She again reiterated that there is nothing she can do for me-that I will die soon. Not happy with those "encouraging" words, I left her practice and found another doctor. I also began in July to juice a couple of times a day, and eat a healthy plant meal. Slow and steady. It's been a gentle and enjoyable process as I've also begun to practice tai chi. The gentle approach has paid off, I am happy to report.



    Yesterday I visited my new doctor and in one month I've released twenty-four pounds. She was ecstatic, and how lucky am I to have a doctor who knows about rebooting, and supports my lifestyle choices! As I am an educator, we discussed how not to let going back to the classroom derail my efforts. That's why I am here. I need your support!



    I'll begin my ten day reboot when I return from a family reunion this coming Sunday. I'll start back to work on Monday, and I'll be rebooting then. Right now, I'm feeling very well, and am looking forward to approaching my lowest weight in the last ten years once I release twenty-seven more pounds.



    I've put this in writing so as to share my story and hold myself accountable.



    Thank you for being here. I appreciate your time, your courage, and your stories!

    So I'm on day 15 of my 30 days and I've only lost 15lbs. I getting discouraged. I should've been further along than this by now... I thought that by having more to lose I would lose it faster. I thought that the supplements would help. I haven't touched any food, only juice. Does anyone who has lost the weight have any suggestions? I started watching the first movie again but it was even less motivating when I saw that Joe got to 15 days and was down 26lbs. I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong. I don't want to give up but what else can I do to drop the weight? I don't feel like this is working..... any advice would be helpful. Thanks guys.

    Hello, mybestlife,

    I want to commend you on releasing fifteen pounds! That's wonderful! Please don't get discouraged. I've not lost the entire 100 lbs, but I am losing (24lbs in a month), and so I can tell you that slow and gentle may be the way to go. Have you tried exercising? Maybe a bit of walking might help. I walk and I practice tai chi. Every little bit helps.

    I do want to say that comparing yourself and your journey to others' weight loss journeys will make you feel like you're deficient or failing. Please don't be so hard on yourself. You're doing great, just stay the course and know that every pound gone (you're averaging a pound a day, by the way) is one more step to your own vibrant health. You can do this!

    Hello mybestlife,

    I agree with Sabrina about not comparing yourself with anyone. I have seen that men can lose weight much faster than women as they have more muscle mass and so burn more calories. When I started my 30 day reboot I was certain I would lose 30 lbs in 30 days. But I lost 14.

    I am not disappointed as I totally switched my eating habits and am able to stick with mostly juice, smoothies, soups and salads. I eat all whole plant based food, and about 80% raw or juiced. I feel great! I haven't tried eating grains or beans and legumes much, just small amounts. Part of me is afraid I will return to eating sugar, dairy and animal products, so I'm being very careful. Honestly the longer I stay away from those unhealthy foods, the easier it is to choose good things for my body. I'm trying to keep my focus on healthy living, exercise, stress reduction and gratefulness. The weight loss will happen!

    Keep imagining who you want to be, you can do it! Let us know how you're doing!

    Hello group!



    I am rejoining this group. I was around quite a bit in 2012-2013, did some 10 and 20 day juice fasts. I see some old friends on the member list and look forward to re-connecting with you! I am back in 100%. Last week I completed my first 30 day Guided Reboot from this site- it was great! Down 14lb and the best part is have confidence I can continue this healthy way for the rest of my life. I am a nurse and have always had an interest in lifestyle medicine and thought I knew quite a bit about nutrition. Well, I learned so much more from the webinars with our nutritionist and group communication.



    I have not completely transitioned to whole foods yet- had smoothies, soups and juice the first 2-3 days. Then tried salad and steamed veggies but was too hard on my system. The nutritionist suggested I continue more liquid diet until I feel ready to eat. Juicing is so much easier! No choices- just juice! One huge benefit of the reboot is totally lost my desire for sugar! There are so many resources on Joe's site. Wonderful recipes. Last night I made Creamy avocado mushroom soup. Very tasty.



    My plan for the next 2 months is smoothie for breakfast, 2-3 juices throughout the day and one vegan meal for dinner and fruit or veggie snacks. Late October I plan to do another 30 day juice, until Thanksgiving. I have about 80lb left to lose. I can do it! So glad to join up with you all again!



    Happy juicing!!

    Hello group! Today is day 1. I am excited and nervous both. I did 30 days about a year ago and then fell right back into the daily grind. I am hoping of doing a better job of transitioning this time. I was recently considering surgery but decided to eat and drink as if I had without actually doing the cutting me open part! I turned 50 a month or so ago and I figure things are only going to get harder if I don't make a major change. I took up boxing and love it! So here I go! I am looking forward to getting to know you and journeying together.
