  • About: I'm 53 and have lost the same 15 lbs at least half a dozen times. And there is more to go after that barrier. I've done a range of diets with pretty good success but much too easily I gained the weight back. I've had a lot of changes in my life in the past few years. I have been relatively fortunate with my health and have now really grabbed onto the idea that I can make it hugely better by my choices. I have grandchildren, with more to come and I want to be a happy, healthy, vibrant role model of good health for them.
  • Why I've Joined Reboot with Joe: I want to be permanently successful in my weight loss and learn how to maintain good eating. I don't want the diets anymore and I want to enjoy life and living without worrying about what I can't and shouldn't eat. Joe makes sense and has set up a plan for success.

    The night job is over and done and I am looking forward to whatever work comes next. Weight loss is 20 lbs says my new scale. Enjoying my Elliptical regularly and am on 40 minutes now. It's taken a lot longer than I expected but I can say that my thinking is clearer, the energy barometer has risen and my whole body system is running cleaner.

    In Walmart lineup the other day I noticed many of the people around me were very overweight. Looking in their shopping carts at the pop and junk food and white pastas, I felt like asking them not to do that to their bodies!

    This Reboot is doing more for my living along with losing weight. There are so many good things we can do for ourselves to make our days that much more enjoyable. Even setting and achieving goals transfers a confidence to other areas of my life. I truly do believe that I can do so much more. My life really is about ME! And that is very exciting.

    Day 37 for real! Well it would seem that I have lost count of my Reboot days and have added a week somewhere along the way! No matter. I'm not ready to let go of the juicing yet. But I did say 60 days was the new goal so... big breath in....and on I go!

    Work has been wearing on me and I'm about done with the 11 days of 11 hour night shifts. I lay in bed one morning longer than usual feeling a bit down about a few things. It wasn't until later that I realized that I didn't once think of food to comfort my mood. THAT is a hallmark of change I'd say. Juicing has changed my body's way of reacting. Oh ya!

    I've had a few bites here and there and although they're health choices, I don't like the bargaining I tend to do with myself to legitimize my indulgences. Looking good in a new pair of jeans I bought today that are two sizes smaller but better is still my goal.

    My green juice is the star of my day and I will reach for it before anything else. I used to think it smelled like grass and tasted about the same. Now I think it smells alive and I often want more when I'm done my glass. I drink three every day and two of another varienty My tolerance for sugar has diminished as I don't enjoy a juice that is too sweet. My daily coffee craving is gone and I seldom even think of having a cup anymore. I never would have thought that hot lemon water firtst thing would ever replace my coffee. Organic lemons are way more amazing than organic coffee beans. The posoriasis is at bay, just a hint of it left. My hair in incredibly shiny using the same shampoo as before. My sking is cleaner, clearer and I've had compliments about it. I would say that most of my food tempatations are gone, but I still have a few food habits I need to get rid of. I'm excited about the new foods I'll explore when I start regularly eating again.

    I tightened up my belt another notch today and my work jeans feel a bit saggy in the butt. I'm good with that! Feeling energized and determined.

    I have passed the 30 day mark that seemed like such a huge challenge at the beginning of it all. Juicing has become a part of my life and I can scarcely imagine how not to continue. My weight loss is around the 15 lb mark. My scale is so wonky that is weighs differently no matter where I set it. I wanted to see results in numbers I must admit and trying not to dwell on that hasn't been easy.

    I was so inspired by people's successes and the turnaround stories of living in pain and discomfort and damaged by medications and health issues. My own challenges were largely to lose 35 pounds and embrace a new level of healthy food choices. The psoriasis I had been plagued with for years is nearly gone and that is totally unbelievable.

    So I continue to 60 days.

    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.
