A group for those juicing until they hit their goal weight, regardless of how far that is.
Reboot to Goal

I'm back at it again.
I hope everyone is taking care of themselves.
I'm back after a long time , hope you are well.
I'm thinking of starting a new reboot in April.
I didn't do the full 30 in November. I allowed myself to be lured back to eating. Unhealthy foods. I went off the rails.
That was then, this is now.
Today is a new day 1.
Good health to all.
November 1st. Back at it.
I let my fitness routine slack. Got back on it again. Today is day 1 of 30.
The past 2 weeks were a disappointment to myself. I did and ate all the things that made me fat and unhealthy to begin with. I guess the worst part of the situation is the fact that I loved it. That's difficult to come to terms with.
Well, that's in the past. Today is a new day.
Day 7 of my fall juice fast.
I decided not to do the Jason Vale 5 day challenge. I think it's a great program. I just got into a good groove with my usual juices and shopping. If it ain't broke, don't fix it!
Missing my group :-)
I hope everyone is well and making positive steps towards better health. Feel free to email me at my yahoo account anytime. I'd love to hear from y'all. Don't forget to put something about juice or reboot in the subject so I don't delete you as spam!
June 1st, I'm back for another 100% juice fast.
Wishing my group was still around :-(
Hi Katy, Good to see you still going strong ! I started my reboot and failed horribly. I knew that getting back would be difficult but didn't imagine it would be this BAD :( The worst part is that I eat more bad food to get over the disappointment of not being able to stick to eating good. I have some friends coming over to stay with us for some time , planning to start the reboot once they are gone around the end of June. I have gained around 4 kg ( 9lb) on my lowest reboot weight which is not a lot but I feel a LOT worse that I used to. Feel tired and demotivated all the time :( and that's why I haven't been coming here a lot lately. It's nice to see that you haven't given up and continue to motor along , All the Best !!! anyone else still around in the group ??
I'm back! I had a bit of a boomerang effect myself. Facing some minor medical setbacks.
After returning from summer vacation, I was ok the first week home. Then I gained 19 lbs the next week. Everyone tells me that's impossible. Yet, I did it. It was all down hill from there!
I'm back to my usual walking program, but again hit with some minor medical obstacles.
I'm on day 2 of just juice. It feels like I'm ready for it. No prep, just dove right in. On Monday, 10/05, I'm doing the Jason Vale 5 day program. After that, back to Mean Green!
Posting in the morning due to leaving town in a few minutes.
Down another -2 lbs this morning. I'm -2 lbs below my lowest reboot weight.
I still have a long way to go, but this months reboot will get me a whole lot closer to my goal. I'm still a little trippin' over my hair loss. I'd say that it's about 3/4th of the way gone. I debated doing this again because I don't want to lose what I have left. I keep seeing the new Mad Max commercials with Charlize Theron and her bald head. Definitely much cuter on her than me! I think of my workouts as my "physical therapy". I can either do it now or wait until my health fails and struggle to do it then. Well, I'm trying to frame the hair loss the same way. I can lose it now as I gain my health before something tragic like cancer and chemo happens. Or, I can wait until I'm at deaths door and requiring treatments that cause it to fall out then. Morbid, maybe. But it helps me keep it in perspective. It's only hair. It will or won't grow back. It's worth the sacrifice to live a longer, healthier life.
I tried on some summer clothes that I bought a couple of summers ago, but got too fat to wear before even removing the tags. I'm actually too small to wear them now! I'm going to do a closet clean out when I return from vacation. I'm approaching the weight that I was after my second child was born. At the time, it was my highest weight ever. An unimaginable number for me. Now, as I approach it coming from the other direction, I'm looking forward to hitting the weight I was at after the first kiddo was born! Asking myself why so many milestones in my life are attached to "highest weight" memories. The birth of my kids should have been attached to "happiest moments in my life" memories. Not linked to how fat I was. Just goes to show how much emphasis is placed on weight instead of health.
See y'all at the end of the weekend. I'm expecting to be a few pounds lighter by Monday. I intend to stay on 100% juice while on vacation. I'll only be gone for the weekend!
@SD: I hope you're off to a running start!
Hey, sorry for the absence. I felt bad that I didn't have any real good news to post. And I still don't. After trying different things, and not getting a real answers, I decided to take some drastic steps.
First I gave myself some time off the diet. I've been eating like crap the past 5 days. I've kept track of calories. It's remarkable how on the salads it's a challenge to get up to even 1,500 calories. But a fast food place can throw on 2,700 calories in a single meal. I'm averaging between 5k and 6k calories per day. I've been keeping up on my swimming most days. I have not weighed myself yet, and I'm dreading do so. I'm just hoping to get a reset on my metabolism.
Second, I've been beyond frustration with the lack of help from the "pros". I've come to the conclusion most dieticians don't know any more than we do. I don't claim to be an expert in fitness and nutrition, but I've been in business long enough to detect when someone's full of s**t. But there are genuine experts out there.
I remember watching an interview with George Lucas about working on the original Star Wars. He talked about all the stuff he did that had never been done before, and all the problems he encountered. But he was able to hire John Williams to score the film. Lucas said he had hardly any input, but when he showed up he was thrilled at the results. And I don't think anyone of can imagine that opening crawl without the Williams soundtrack. It was the only thing that went right without a hitch. The moral of the story, according to Lucas, that when you can, hire the best.
With all that being said, I thought long and hard about who the best would be in this space. And I think I made a pretty good choice. I'll share who it is when I have my first meal/workout plan. But I'll tell you that we would all agree his results are superhuman.
He's currently putting together a custom plan for me, but did give me some initial feedback. According to him I was taking in far too few calories and wants me to keep my calories around 2,300 per day, as well as pump up my protein. So, I'll be going back to the salads tomorrow and adding a protein shake to boost the protein and calories.
I'll start posting here more regularly. Hopefully I'll have more positive things to share than these past few weeks.
So glad you're back!
I agree 100%. Most dieticians, nutritionists, personal trainers, etc that I have encountered make me wonder how they passed kindergarten. In fact, of late, many medical doctors that I've been to are the same as well. And, truth be told, I don't usually want to hear what some "pro" who has never been overweight in their life has to say. Even my own family members who have never battled with weight issues seem to have the magic cure for me: "just eat moderate portions of healthy foods" or the ever famous "if you cut out deserts you wouldn't be fat"...
Best of luck. I'm sure you have selected well.
Stay on board and keep us updated whether the news is good, bad or ugly!
I'm on day 3. I lost 11 lbs the first 2 days. Hoping our little group comes back. I'm posting on my wall and checking in here periodically.
Good job! I was so happy to see you in here when I cam back. Great job in keeping going.
This is it y'all!
Tomorrow starts my May 2015 Reboot. I'm ready. Enjoying my last solid meal of cabbage soup and salsa.
SD: I hope it's going well for you!
Everybody else: What's happening? Where'd ya go?
Let's get our "Reboot to Goal" back up and running!
