    Hello all! What a wonderful feeling it was to find this group almost instantly when joining this community. Tomorrow is my first day of juice and deep inside me the worry was brewing. I am too big, I have so much too lose, such a long way to go. Seeing this group gave me hope. I am not alone! We can all do this and we are all getting there one day at a time. Yay! All my love x

    You can do it!! Just get through the first few days and it will be easier than you can imagine. Don’t be discouraged if you feel bad at the beginning, you’re just getting rid of the toxins you’re carrying. Around day 5 you’ll be feeling great. Drink at least 64 oz. of juice a day and drink lots of water. Juice on!!

    hey mainlyelle & robin: I bought (rather than make) my first juices today and was feeling quite a bit of trepidation about getting it together to start juicing- nice to come upon your post and find out I am not alone. It does feel scary to have "such a long way to go" but I am remembering the age-old Chinese proverb (which must have actually been different - since surely they didn't mark distance in miles!) about how a "journey of a thousand miles begins with the first step" -- good luck to you mainlyelle-- and thanks for the encouragement Robin! Baby steps...

    @ Michelle (high school healthy) and Laura, how are you doing? See you on one of the other active reboot groups.

    Doing great here! I think I'm finally over the initial shock of fasting. Today was my first day back to work since I started and it went much better than I had anticipated. In spite of rather stressful events. I'm finding I have more energy to deal with things. And seeing the scale go down is certainly inspiring me. I must say, so far everyone I've spoken to on this site has been super helpful. I really appreciate all the support!

    Hi RM and Fellow Juicers,

    I begin day 1 tomorrow. I completed four days before breaking my Breville and waiting for the replacement part two weeks ago. Tried buying juices but that got real expensive. Did well with my eating habits but I'm ready to go the 60 days. Glad to see others are doing great! Can't wait to get back at it with you all! Onward together!

    Ya'll want to come join one of the other active groups? Sorry, that's a screenshot --



    I'm not linking to them directly just at the mo, no time for inserting links. But we can invite you if you can't find them easily. Here are some of the ones I belong to... the Seniors not very active. I think we're missing some of the new people. [ Not to mention the returnees who have great experience to share! ]

    Excellent post Soose. Hey Laura, HighSchoolSkinny716, London Guy, and Treesee, we recommend you post on other active reboot groups for support, commraderie, sharing tips, and giving tips. Each group is slightly different and you can join as many reboot groups as you want. Some groups discuss Fasting and some groups discuss Eating after Fasting. People who are fasting generally do not want to hear or see all the wonderful healthy recipes people are enjoying after their fast. However those groups are fantastic for how to transition to healthy eating after fasting, so if you can handle it go for it. Juice On.

    Day two complete - I'm down 8 pounds! I go back to work today so I'm a little worried about slipping off the fast. Last night I had to eat some steamed cauliflower to get through. I was feeling really weak. I thought I blew it but then this morning when i stepped on the scale I couldn't believe the number! I do feel a lot better than I did a couple days ago. I'm starting to sleep better. Long distance hikers have a saying "Hike your own hike". Which basically means, do it your own way - whatever it takes to get to the end of your journey. I guess eating that cauliflower last night was me hiking my own hike. It worked, so I don't feel so bad.

    Whoo hoo, Laura! Day two and 8 lbs is very inspiring! Glad you're sleeping better, too. Do hang in there at work today and let us know how it goes -- if you can post from work at lunch or when temptation is around. At least know we're eager to hear from you when you are done and able! Be well!

    Thank you Soose! I do appreciate all of the support. My wife is cheering me on but everyone else thinks I'm crazy.

    Laura, what is CRAZY is eating the SAD way and eating ourselves into disease and death. IMO, that is. lol

    Have you found the other active groups? I think I may be able to send you invites, not sure? (Not a pro at this site.) There are some great people!

    Just started a new convo on one of them and ended up talking about how to talk about juice fasting to others so they don't think you're crazy given old info and trigger words like fasting -- well, I started it last night and so far Leslie has replied. But there's other good stuff there and on some other groups, somewhat the same community -- do come if you haven't, you and others here, as well as staying here... Happy Juicing 2018 :)

    Made it through my first day! I slept most of it. Feeling weak and a little cloudy. I’m sure some of it is from caffeine withdrawal. I purchased Joe Cross’s 101 Juice Recipes book. Looking forward to trying several of them. Got on the scale this morning and to my astonishment I’ve lost 4 pounds already! That has motivated me to push through day two for sure. This isn’t easy, but I have a feeling it’s goibg to be worth it. Will post again tonight.

    How did High School Skinny 716 and London Guy do today? I look forward to your next post.

    Hi RM,

    I'm Michelle. I have not weighed myself. I want to wait the 10 days. I know I've lost some water weight as my clothing is loose. Today was challenging but moving forward. How are you doing? I Hope you're having tremendous success!

    Day One has begun. I have the next couple of days off, which is good because I am anticipating a withdrawal from caffeine, and just food in general. Got up early and juiced. I have four mason jars of Mean Green in the fridge and am enjoying a carrot-apple-pear-lemon-ginger juice now. I really like this one in the morning. I figured tonight I'll do something with beets as my final juice. I'm not sure how much daily juice is appropriate, but I've planned for six 12 ounce mason jars for the day. I fill them to the brim, so it's probably more like 14-16 ounces. Anyhow, I'm blessed to have a very loving and supportive wife, who has actually lost over 80 pounds in the last few years. She's fought tooth and nail for it too. She didn't juice, she just followed whatever diet felt right for her. And she's very faithful with her exercise. Now it's my turn! Glad to be here.

    @ Laura, kudos on a successful Day One. I am so glad you are taking a few days off work. I did and it really helped me get from feast to famine. It is also great that you have support at home. That makes a huge difference too. I look forward to your evening post, letting us know how Day One ended.

    Hello, my name is Laura and I've been putting my health aside for 50 years. I have at least 150 pounds to lose. Blood pressure as of tonight is 153/92. I'm tired of being overweight and unable to do the things I've always wanted to do. On my 50th birthday this past April I decided to challenge myself with a 5 mile hike in the Georgia mountains to a lodge that is only accessible by foot. What should have been a 3 hour hike turned out to be more than 6 hours for me. It nearly killed me! BUT as painful as it was, I made it. Now I want to do more, be more. I'm missing out on too much. About a week ago I purchased a juicer, on whim. Figured I would give it a try. After a couple of days of supplementing my meals with juice I started to feel better - a whole lot better. I'm going to try a 10 day reboot starting tomorrow. I'm pretty nervous because I've never been great at fasting. I'm afraid I may just curl up in a ball for a day or so and then quit. But, just like that mountain I climbed on my birthday, I'm determined to conquer this. Nothing like turning 50 to make make me realize that there are more years behind me than ahead of me. I want to live them to the fullest. Looking forward to the turning point.

    @ London Guy, 36 pounds is 3 clothes sizes at least. Why to go. Stick to your goal and have fun. What is a Fitbit badge?
