Was it only a year ago!!! how time flies... and we are heading into winter (ok autumn but it seems like winter to me)... lost my stepfather and a good friend in the spring. Found myself overeating again and not juicing... Now, I've gained back 20 of the 40 lbs I had lost. Need to get this in check because none of my winter clothes will fit... going to do a 2 day detox on the weekend and start making juices during the week so I have some ready. I freeze mine as I can't make them every day.
- About: I'm the heaviest I've ever been in my life. At 54 and menopausal, I've have Fibromyalgia (24 years), and chronic pain for about 30 from several car accidents. I had a heart valve replacement 10 years ago. Add on a few more car accidents and more whiplash. I've always been an emotional eater. Nothing is working anymore (not that it did such a great job in the past).
- Why I've Joined Reboot with Joe: Trying this again to see if I can stabilize my sugar levels and make a life change.
- Favorite Juice? Beet-ini so far!
- Food temptation? Sweet and salty anything
My Dad has a juicer but really just throws anything into it that he has in the fridge. I think I'm spoiled by having so many great juices from Juicing with Joe. So, next step, teach my dad that juicing can taste awesome if you put the right things together!! (You might be able to tell I don't enjoy his juices! His style works for cooking but not juicing!)
Hoping I just had the last juice with Daikon in it! Never adding that again! It;s great in Miso Soup but not Juiced!!! At least not to my taste buds! About to shop for my next set of juices... here we go again!!!!!!!! So lovely to freeze and take out as needed! Makes my life easier except on the wild juicing day when it's a lot of work!
Wow so many juices, so prepared.... :-) juice on
Love my green juices... they are my favourite!
Boy I envy you lovin' those ghastly green juices. I shudder just thinking I'm going to have to drink another one. /giggle
Hope you've had a lovely weekend, CJ.
Day 3 of being back in routine! It feels good... someone at work told me that whatever I was doing was working because I had more of a spring in my step!! Call me HAPPY!! I was looking for that "spring" for decades!!!
Day 2... feeling good... amazing how the mind works... when I'm on I'm ontrack!! When I'm off, I feel like crap... time to remember who I really am and celebrate it! Really enjoyed my first glass of a new batch of Mean green!
Way to go!
Day 1... I now know to not use Daikon in my juices... It's great in miso soup and so good for you but has a much stronger taste than celery... must go grocery shopping and juice tonight!
Have a great and glorious weekend!
Today is Day 1 of my 60 day Reboot. :))) I am a happy juicer! I have to say that when I am not juicing, my body doesn't feel as good, I experience more allergy symptoms (pollen etc) and have more pain. So, HERE I GO!!! I saw a woman this morning in the prettiest summer dress and thought... next year, I can be wearing that!

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!
