I'm so in love with this tea
I'm so in love with this tea
So I had a little set back, I was house sitting this entire weekend and Saturday was my first full day of juicing it went well. I should have drank more water but I wasn't hungry I even spent time with my ex and didn't feel like emotionally eating after he left. However on Sunday was a little harder because i was drinking all the each juice, I know it said 2 servings so when I brought the food I din't have enough and I went back to the market to get more and even though I was drinking them all I was still hungry. It wasn't in my head my stomach was making sounds, so I gave in and had the leftovers from Friday nights dinner which was roasted broccoli and quinoa/brown rice with cilantro and I added a lot of kale. I know it was wrong but it was late and I needed to eat something and I figured it's still healthy. Lesson learned to get enough food so this doesn't happen again.
Tomorrow is my the big day.... It's my first full day of juicing only, I'm looking forward to it. Lucky I have to house sit so I wont have any food distractions because my mom was going to have a Sunday dinner with the family. I just plan on laying around and enjoy this big step I hope I goes well. I think it will because I'm not going into this with a negative mindset.
So my mom just called me at work to say that she invited my unlce over for sunday dinner (I live with my mom since I seperated from my husband 2 yrs ago, figured she needed the rent money) and asked me what would I like to eat. I said I'm juicing so have whatever you want. She replies how about ham and rice and beans you can eat the ham. I laughed and said no I'm juicing that means I'm only comsuming veggies and fruit... I still don't think she gets what I'm doing.
Ugh where do I start... I have been separated from my husband for 2 yrs we still love each other but more like friends now which I guess is a good thing. This July I met someone and we started dating things were going great. So much to the point that I even told my husband about him (which didn't go over to well) I introduced him to some of my family members. I started to believe in love again and thought I could let my guard down and try to see where this would go. He said all the right things, flipped my world upside down, my knees would get weak whenever he touched me I couldn't think straight. I know 2 months is way to fast to love someone but I did. In the past 2 weeks I've noticed a change in him, he has been distant, I figured he's a full-time student and the fall semester just started so that must be it. I work at a University so I get the student life has a lot of demands. But this past Sunday he said that he doesn't want to be in a relationship because he's schedule is crazy with work and school. He doesn't want to date someone who he'll only see every other weekend so we should be friends or move-in together as friends/roommates and see where it goes from there. I told him I'm going to be 33 and I'm not here to play house or whatever that would be. It came as a complete shock because I didn't know that I truly was in love with him, I had a thought that I could fall in love with him in time but not that I was. But when he hug me I felt a huge black whole grown in my chest and it felt like "good bye" I wish the pain would go away and I could stop crying. So I have been heart broken since Sunday, I haven't been sleeping more than 2 hrs at max (I also have a sleeping disorder since I was a teen) I have been eating well, really well only fruits and veggies and juicing (doing the 5 day pre-reboot) I have to say this is the first time I'm going through a ruff time in my life and I haven't turned to food as a coping mechanism, so that's great and I have lost 4 lbs since Sunday, but I don't take pride in stress-weight-loss. I will be starting back at the gym this week like the saying goes "idle hands are the devil's workshop" so I'm going to stay every busy. I will also be starting my reboot juice fast on Saturday, I guess when it rains it pours. I believe maybe this had to happen right now, some would say it poor timing but it has made me really look at my life. I need to figure out if I'm going to stay married or what, hubby lives in NYC and i live in Miami, I'm going to our hometown this Christmas and he is going to see me which means we are going to have to have "THE TALK" which I hope goes well even if we get divorce I hope we can still be friends. Oh and this week I applied to school and I plan on taking classes this spring to finish my degree. So this detox or reboot isn't only about my health or losing weight it has transformed into a reboot of my entire life. My love, family, marriage, school, work life.
Maybe the reboot willtake your mind of things for a while.
Thanks that is what I'm hoping for, so far today has been okay. No phone calls/text from my ex and my husband which means NO DRAMA... crazy thing is I just had a thought (oh pizza would be great for dinner) as I'm walking back to my desk but then it hits me (no dont want that junk look at your belly you had enough pizza to last 2 life times) and I know I dont really want pizza it's just the "fat Reina" (by the way thats my name) putting up a fight to hold on to her power which she has none.
Remember: you're your best love story. Now you're the first, the protagonist !!! Best regards from Spain.
Thanks Newlife I'm trying so far I haven't cried all day.
I will be starting for the first time on Sept 22nd until Dec 15th which is also my deadline. I'm going back home to see my family for the holidays and hopefully work on fixing my marriage (we've been separated for about 2.5 yrs, he lives NYC) I want/plan to bring in the New Year right. I know an 80 day reboot won't be easy but I have to stop being afraid and hanging my head down and cry over my life. If I give myself half a chance I'll see my desire coming true because I have this burning inside of me that knows this is not the end and I will finally be the woman, wife, daughter, sister etc. that I'm suppose to be. I know I will have to work much harder than I have ever done and will resist the old me i.e. giving up.

This group is inspired by all the amazing people I have met in this community who, like me, have or had 100 lbs or more to lose when starting this journey with our wonderful Joe Cross:) There are special challenges in this world for those of us who are "morbidly obese" and there are some incredibly inspirational people around here conquering those challenges every day. Come be inspired and inspiring!

This group is for those who want to end the year strong by doing a 30-day+ juice feast starting Saturday, 11/30 and ending Tuesday, 12/31 or continuing beyond. Why the challenge through the "holidays"? Because we need to finally be free of the bondage we have to food. Who says we can't spend the holidays juice feasting instead of binging and becoming more unhealthy, heavier and more miserable. Together, supporting each other we can do this and start 2014 strong and healthy!

I just started Juice Fasting and Day 1 is almost complete. There were times throughout that were tough. I felt tired and an undescribeable feeling. I am feeling ok now though. Are there any other first time fasters here>

Have polar vortices and Joe's video from Hawaii made you yearn for summer? Summer….the smell of coppertone, beaches and showing more skin. Just in time for hot weather, mini dresses, shorts and bikini's (men are welcome - mankini's are not. lol) is a 100 day challenge.
Officially STARTS JAN 14 - JAN 19 and ENDS APRIL 24-28 but anyone can join the challenge at any time... just start and count to 100
This group is for people wanting to combine juicing with exercise for a initial 100 day commitment. Only 5-7% of people who lose weight keep it off. This group is for people who want to change their lifestyle and habits to achieve permanent weight loss and live a healthier active life.
Is this group right for you?
1. You take responsibility for your choices. This group is for people who are mostly juicing. If your plan is to plan for an occasional meal out with friends, have your meal and enjoy, thats great - IMO planning is key to success and health. Juicing is about long term health so learning to make healthy decisions in social situations is important. No confessionals! Guilt, shame, cheating do not belong in a healthy relationship with food.
2. You want to be active and lead a healthy life style. You aren't waiting to lose weight before you are active, you want to start today or have already started. You're ready to lose weight, tone, build muscle, and/or challenge yourself in a healthy way.
3. This isn't a race - realize that everyone has setbacks. When setbacks happen we get back on track immediately…Remember, the tortoise always wins the race.
4. You're an optimist - post positive affirmations etc
5. You are focused on juicing, exercise, and activities (aka life) not weight loss. Weight loss is great but it shouldn't define who a person is. If you need to lose weight, like me, take it day by day and focus on enjoying the journey not finding validation on the scale.
6. You're not an enabler - provide support and a swift kick to people to get back on track.
7. Hopefully, you already have some good habits in place and feel good juicing.
Hopefully there are others out there who are approaching healthy eating, juicing/rebooting and exercise as a permanent lifestyle change and want to join this challenge.
Those that are already at a healthy weight and have transitioned to an occasional reboot/ healthy diet are welcome to join as group mentors.
Please c/p questionnaire and repost with your answers
What is your juicing plan?
What do you normally do for exercise?
Do you have any special activities planned in the next 100 days?
How many pounds, if any, do you want to lose?
Upcoming special events you are working extra had for?
Best Self Affirmation or Tip

A group created for those of us caught in the toxic triangle of depression. A place where we can go to get help and information by talking to others that are going through the same thing. We all want out of it but the hardest thing for us to do is start somewhere. Well, you've come to the right place. Not only is a juice reboot the answer to overeating and overdrinking but it will help to get you in the right frame of mind to stop the overthinking (ruminating). It doesn't just reboot your body - it Reboots Your Life!

This group is designed for the individuals who would love to JUST JUICE for the next 60 days! This would be considered a "juice fast." If you are trying to lose at least 40 pounds, this would be the group for motivation and peace! There will also be workouts provided while juicing (speak with your doctors). Before and after pictures are welcomed! Come and join!

This group is for anyone who wants to do a serious juice fast for the entire month of September. My only request is that there be absolutely NO FOOD TALK. (Juice ingredients are perfectly fine.). If someone is struggling, it can run them right off the rails - and we don't want that. Whether you're young or old, timid or bold, have much to lose or a little....or just want to clean up your body, mind and spirit...ACCEPT THIS CHALLENGE.

Well I 've had a wake up call this week and definitely need to do this. I know Eric is having a another go, well so am I. If I fail this time, please will you all shout at me on here and tell me what a loser and quitter I am. If you are in the mood to start this again, please join me, need all the help I can get.
