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.
Hi there MamaPajama!
Good for you taking that first step and starting a reboot! I just completed 30 day Guided Reboot and you can do this! It really helps me to write down my thoughts, feelings and challenges and share with the group. Helps keep me on track. Remember- it's one day at a time and gets easier with each day.
Hello beautiful people. This is the first day of my first ofgicial reboot.i have about 130 lbs to lose so im motivated. Due to health issued over the last several yrs ive gotten so heavy sometimes its hard to just walk. Im going to change that. Im grateful ur all here. I dont feel so alone
Hi Tabicat, I'm starting today so will be 2 days behind you!
Great to meet you! It takes courage to start a reboot and make big changes, but there is lots of support and resources here. Just finished 30 day reboot and after the first 7-10 days, I was not hungry at all and had loads of energy. You must be on day 5 by now- how's it going?
All the best to you!
Hey guys! Summer semester is done and did like dinner. I have been able to take a few days to reflect what my problem is with my relationship to food. Honestly, I think it's the alcohol and I am not a huge drinker but when you think about it, even if you have a glass of wine or two everyday, it adds up. I am going to stop making wine. I am giving away all my bottles and that's it!
As for the rest, I start back at school September 6th. I am going to start back on a reboot. It will be so much easier. The temptation will always be there to line up at Tim Hortons for my cup of coffee and whatever else, but I am seriously not going to do it. I will have my herbal tea and coconut water packed and ready to go. I will just focus on studying and my health. When I need a breather I will sit in the sauna for a bit.
These are commitments I am making for September. They are down here in writing so I can reflect on my goals. Lots to prepare for.
Hi everyone! I just recently had a baby and have made up my mind that I'm getting this weight off of me and changing my lifestyle once and for all! I want to lose about 100lbs to be at my goal weight. I'm also here to help encourage others on their journey because we can do this!
Congrats on the new baby! All the best.
Hi Everybody, I'm new to the group. I started my juice fast today and I plan to continue for 30 days. I added the weight loss drug, Apidex, to help with the hunger cravings. I also added an all natural supplement called "Resolution", which I have used before to help lose weight fast. I have 110 pounds to lose to get back to my normal weight. I've gained almost 80 of those pounds over the last two years. Two years ago, I broke my ankle and was unable to do the normal workouts that I used to do. I would sit and eat and drink and sleep all the time. Things gradually started getting better, I would walk a lot and do Bikram yoga. Then in June 2016, my father died. I didn't realize how I was dealing with it, but I see now that was eating my feelings instead of dealing with them. Then in January of 2017, I slipped and ripped the muscles in the same ankle (I love heels). I went to the doctor and they said I had to have surgery to fix it. I had the surgery three months ago, in April 2017. Now I'm back up and walking again, but it's difficult with all of the extra weight. I'm ready to let it go. I'm ready to move into my best life. And I'm here to meet people just like me, who are ready to change and have changed their life. Today is day one for me. I'd love to hear from all of you and I'd really appreciate any support you can give. Thanks for reading. :)
Welcome back to the journey. Just never give up!
Bumble, in addition to watching Joe's Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead 1 + 2, I would advise watching other shows like Forks over Knives, Food Choices and What the Health, all of which are on Netflix. The last ones really gave me clarity on why i should become a vegan (not vegetarian). It's about a healthy life style and not really about weight. It's about eating things humans are really adapted to eating. We're not really omnivores, not many people can stomach eating raw from a freshly kill animal. All our consumption of meat requires us using tools to cut it because we naturally don't have these tools ourselves like true omnivores. Meat we eat usually has to cooked and otherwise processed, like grounding. So we can eat meat if it's heavily processed but that's like saying if we put ground beef into the feed for cows and they eat it, that beef is suitable food for cows. It's not, except maybe cows from hell.
Starting reboot today, definitely looking for accountability, I have done this once before, and lost 20 lbs first two weeks, then stalled, and was in the middle of a move, keep wanting to start but finally ready to try again. Weight loss is important, final # isn't, health and mobility is, but I have a good 100-150 to loose. I have 9 kids lots of babyfat to shed, and a few pieces of cheesecake...
9 kids! I bet there's never a dull moment in your house. All the best on this journey. It's good to think of yourself as a priority. If you are healthy your family benefits.
Hi all, it's been about a month since I started being Vegan and I've been able to keep it with only one exception like 3 days into the process when I had some shrimp and polenta. So essentially, it's still about a month. Like I said before, I've not really been juicing but rather making an intense smoothie each morning. I can't bring myself to waste all that precious kale and spinach in the juicing process. This is what I put in my Vitamix, give or take some different fruits:
1 basket of strawberries (fresh or frozen or mixed)
1 quarter of a pineapple
1 large slice of some kind of melon, cantelope, watermelon, or honey dew
1 large bunch of spinach
1 large bunch of kale
1 half of a large lemon, juice and zest but not the brine
2 cups of ice
It makes about 50-60 ounces of smoothie, some of which I drink immediately and the rest I sip throughout the morning
I can probably make it to about 4 pm without feeling any hunger or food cravings.
I've lost about 12 pounds since I started but more importantly, i feel great and I'm comforted by the idea that this is the best way to stave of heart disease and cancer.
Moreover, I truly believe that people were not really evolved to eat meat as we do. Our teeth and gut can't handle it. Sure we can eat meat that has processed but we could've just as easily mixed ground beef into the feed of a cow but we certainly don't cows have evolved to eat meat.
If we're truly meat eating, just imagine a smoothie with raw meat items it, how many people would drink that?
Look at all the new people posting! So great to see you all plugging away at living your best life. A little bit about me... I am a veteran rebooter. I have been around for a while.
SoonToBeSkinnyMe, I too have Hashimotos. Your relationship with food can go a long way to feeling your best.
Maddog, I am finished this semester on August 4th, 2017. I have 2 intense exams tomorrow and then one after another and 2 more presentations and then it's over. I am counting the days. I will have a whole month off. The first thing I am going to do is get myself back on track food wise and sleep.
It's really hard when you have a full course load... and then some... as well as family obligations. My son was admitted to hospital a few weeks ago, I have been trying to fix up my vacation home, I still have boxes from my move in January and I have been helping my youngest with all his applications for his start to school in September.
I found I did really well balancing everything until my vacation place opened up in May. I found myself slipping back into my old habits. I don't know why I do this every time, but it's my pattern. The good news is that I only gained 10 lbs. The bad news is that I gained 10 lbs. After the renos are completed I am selling my vacation home. It's better for me. I can always rent a place when I need to get away.
I Hope everyone else keeps plugging away. I started January 9th, 2017 and went from 267 lbs to 215 lbs. I am now 225 lbs. It's a constant battle, and the battle can be won if you don't give up!
In week 3
Hi Juicers! I am beginning week 3 of the juicing and have lost 14 lbs. I need to lose about 130 total from where I began. This is my second fast. Made it through 5 weeks last fall. I love the way I feel. Exercising is a struggle each day. I am committed to becoming healthy and happy. I want to take dance lessons and feel free of this burden. I wish you ALL the very best. Visualize who you want to be... and do it!
