    Hi everyone I bought a juicer today and I'm determined to get my health on a good path I really want to be apart of this group because you all are phenomenal and persevere and although I' do not have 100 pounds to loose I want to be apart of a group that's serious about health and understand the struggle of over eating, emotional eating and just feeling utterly horrible about ourselves. I'm 50 pounds over weight and feel embarrassed to be around people I have fat all over my body and it is disgusting I feel ugly and fat. I have not worked out in10 months and I've totally neglected a healthy diet. The last diet consisted of water only and I lasted 7 days. I'm ready for long lasting results. I hope I can be apart of this group!

    Hello! I just started yesterday. Over the past few years I have had some success but it wasn't permanent. SO this is day 2 of a 60 day for me. I'm also working on the ReBoot Certification with the heartfelt hope that it will keep me on track. This is also a journey toward loving myself. At one point in my life I was 324 lbs. Deprivation diets and eating disorders saw me reach 140 but as we all know that never lasts. I am now 225. Therapy and ReBoot are my tools of choice for health and longevity this time around. I have never had an issue with a plant-based or all-plant diet but I have always been a party girl so those vegan snacks, cocktails and lots of beer really mess it all up for me. *I* mess it up for me. So here's to healthy choices and 58 more days of this ReBoot. I know there will be more in the future. I am heartfully thrilled to be doing it right this time and so grateful to be here where I can get some support.



    Yes, I do want to lose 100 lbs, am cleared to do so, and want to do so in the healthy ReBoot way.

    Also, has anyone else had bloating after their first day? I realize there are probably layers and levels to what the body is cleaning out so it doesn't surprise me. I'm just curious about if it has happened to anyone else.

    I had all kinds of issues my first few days. I'm not even doing a juice fast, but I still had bloating, a little nausea, and had to be within a short distance of the restrooms. That was just the first few days, though. I put it down to a major dietary change and my digestive system having to adjust to it. At the end of just over one week it is already a lot better, and I expect it will keep improving slowly as I stay consistent.

    Keep at it! If it improves in a week or two, you'll know it was probably just an adjustment period. Welcome and good luck!

    Looks like our group is on summer vacation! I hope everyone is doing well and juicing on. In reference of my last post, I decided not to have a cheat meal in front of others in my family who also need to work on regaining health. And to be a consistent role model and encourage by example. Yesterday I had lunch with two morbidly obese family members who made fun of my black bean soup and garden salad while they ate cheeseburgers, but I held my tongue and stayed true to my health plan. After all, I wanted the cheeseburger too! But I found I just could not order it, for several reasons. One of them already has cancer. The other, diabetes, high blood pressure and a fatty liver. As the old adage goes, you can lead a horse to water but you can't make them drink. Perhaps one day on their own timeline, they'll step up to the plate and I will be there for them. Until then, it is just me, juicing on. Taking each day one meal at a time. Scale is not moving right now, but that will not deter me. In fact, that little bugger is going back under the bed for a week. Friends, don't let it anything deter you from reclaiming your health! Focus on health not weight, forgive your slips, and juice the heck out of this summer!

    It always amazes me that so many people make fun of others for NOT doing things that destroy their health. Good on you for sticking with your goals! You can only control your own life, after all.

    Hi everyone. I just starting juicing today (having a Micronutrient Madness as I type - it's so good!! ;) I currently weigh 368 and want to get down to around 135 plus or minus 5 lbs. I'm not planning on doing a juice fast, but I intend to have either 3 juices plus a little 'regular' healthy food or 2 juices plus a smoothie. I've tried eating salads and veg, but my digestive system really doesn't like it at all, which is I am giving juicing a try.



    Thankfully, my body has held up under the pressure of all this weight pretty well. I haven't been checked for clogged arteries, so not sure about that - but the doctor never felt the need to put me on medication for anything, and I don't have any chronic conditions. I am 44 this year though. I know my good luck can't last forever, and honestly, I'd like to go kayaking, hang gliding, biking and many other things either I can't do or are extremely difficult to do at this weight. It'd be nice to be able to go out with others and keep up with them, too. They have to slow down for me as it is now, and I hate it.



    Anyway, looking forward to being part of this community, and if the recipes are all this good, to drinking lots of juice ;)...now if I just had more room in the crispers....

    PrairieWest, get some high quality pro-biotics. They will help overhaul your digestive system and also help with weight loss. You most likely need a major bacterial overall down there. If you want to learn more about it, read the book "Brain Maker." Good luck, Prairie! You've taken a huge step, see it through to the end. You can do it!

    Hi, everyone! I'm still sitting around 205 lbs, which was my weight when I came off my fast about 5 weeks ago. I can officially say it IS possible to come off the fast and not gain weight. The scale is starting to drop again, telling me my metabolism has adjusted now. And phew! I can not wait to hit 199 lbs and a size 16 jean. That's my next short-term goal. Right now I am following my post-fast plan, which is vegan with lots of raw foods. 1-2 times per week I have a cheat meal and that is a hard and fast limit. Whatever it was that got me through the fast without cheating, I'm using it now to stick to my limit on those "cheats." It is non-negotiable. Period. Sometimes I think of a quote I read from Cher: Instant gratification is for babies. Sometimes I just remove myself from the tempting situation, or I totally ignore it. Whole meals can pass and I don't know what the other people ate. However I am starting to see that WHEN I choose to eat my cheat meals has an affect on others. People around me who are inspired by my weight loss have started choosing healthier options when I'm with them - but only when I also choose healthy. If I choose to cheat while among them, it's almost like a permission slip for them to revert. That's tough on me. Having total freedom about when I choose to cheat is a big part of my sticking to it. Now I have to reconsider my approach. Will I put more restrictions on myself in order to encourage others? That's what I'm considering this week.

    Hello there,



    I am new to the group and starting a guided 60 day reboot next week. Nervous if I can do it. I want to reverse diabetes. I am glad to have found this group as I think I need the positive motivation of others, looking forward to hearing about your challenges and successes.

    Keep posting as you progress even if you experience a set back. Life happens, I'll keep cheering you on!

    Michelle, you have come to the right spot. You'll find support and lots of great information here! In the end, it will come down to you. Stay motivated and determined and you will succeed. How to stay motivated? Read lots of books and watch lots of movies about food. They keep the information on your mind and give you new reasons to stick to it. How to stay determined? If you slip, get back up. Don't let a slip turn into a landslide. And second, when feeling weak try this phrase which another poster here shared: "I love myself enough to stick to my plan."

    It's been 3 years since I've watched Joe's first movie. I watched a number of other shows like Forks over Knives, etc. I've successfully done a 10 day fast and lost 13 lbs. But in the end, I couldn't stick with it and i ended up gaining weight. I now need to lose 100 lbs at least.



    I've since watched other shows which reinforced the same themes. I'm convinced that animal protein, i.e. meat of any kind and diary is detrimental to human health. So i'm reinstated a plant strong vegan life style with the goal of never eating animal products again. I started on 6/21/2017 and i'm feeling better each day. I'm not exactly juicing, even though I have a high end cold press juicer. Instead I'm making smoothies. I don't feel as bad about discarding all the fiber from juicing and I'm more confident about capturing all the nutrition that's locked into hard to juice items like kale and spinach. I'm also able to take advantage of other nutritional sources like citrus peels. I throw a whole lemon peels and all into the smoothie. I hope not truly juicing isn't taboo in this community.

    All are welcome, juicing or not. This is about gaining knowledge, sharing knowledge, re-gaining health, and supporting each other. I am also trying to transition to vegan. I take it one day at a time right now because I do fail, but I keep that overall goal strong in my mind and do not let a slip turn into a tumble. Keep posting, and good luck!

    Hey guys! How are things? I am sorry I haven't posted for a few weeks, but I had 8 midterm exams to prepare for and... only 2 more to go. It was a lot of work, but almost at the end of that... then there's August finals. I am not thinking about that right now.



    I am still weighing in at about 218 lbs. I have gained about 2 lbs. over the past few weeks because I succumbed to eating potato chips. Everything else was great, but I have been drinking some wine on the weekends and potato chips during some intense study sessions. It's not good at all because I barely eat/drink anything during the day and sometimes skip dinner completely because I feel I have to much material to cover and don't take the time out to cook something and I refuse to eat out. When I do eat, it is a very healthy meal with a good balance of protein and veggies, it just hasn't been consistent enough.



    I seem to do really well with breakfast. I have a smoothie or some steel oats with fresh berries and maple syrup, but I barely ever eat lunch and then when it comes to dinner, it's a hit and miss.



    So there's some good things and some bad things. I know in August I will definitely get back on track, but I really have to try NOT to eat potato chips and eat regularly. I know that once I get back on track the weight will just fly off.



    I hope you all have been progressing well.

    I hear you! Life is a juggling act. Maybe try making a batch of grab-and-go smoothies? They keep for several days. I am trying to cut down on fruit and have found some good plant-based protein smoothie recipes that use things such as hemp hearts and flax. Keep at it, SnT! Fuel that brain :)
