UPDATE: I'm now at the 15kg mark lost since March 21st this year (15.2kg in 14 weeks... or 33lbs) and 25+kg down since my heaviest. I'm sure adding juicing into my diet has helped with that effort. Still attending osteopath and chiropractor appointments for my sciatica but they are almost at an end and I'm feeling loads better physically.
Good for you !!!!! I just bought my Breville Juicer and plan on starting my 30day reboot on Tuesday......KEEP IT UP
Good for you. So depending on where you are in the world, Tuesday could be today, or tomorrow. Good luck either way. You can do this :)
So this Saturday just gone the 8wk challenge I organise with friends and family finished and I'm pleased to say I won this round!! I managed a total loss of 11.2kg (24.7lbs) even while suffering sciatica and having restricted movement for much of the time. I am even more determined now to lose at least another 10kg in the next 8 weeks... and so on and so on :)
Yesterday I joined a 28 day workout challenge and although I won't be able to do all of the exercises due to back pain, I'm keen to give it a go and slowly build up when I can.
I've managed to have at least one juice a day, usually two and sometimes three. I did allow myself some celebratory blueberry pancakes on Saturday after my weigh-in but didn't put on any weight due to altering the rest of my food intake that day.
I haven't had a juice today yet and I've got a bit of a headache which is not at all common for me. I have had about 2ltrs of water already *its just gone 2.35pm* and have taken pain medication (also for back pain) but its still nagging. I'm looking forward to going home and making a big juice for my late lunch / afternoon tea.
I'm wondering if anyone has found they break-out when juicing. The only time I suffer pimples is just before its that time of the month, but recently I've found a new one or two every couple of days. I'm not overly worried about it but just wondered if it might be to do with the juice and if anyone else has found this.
Thanks to everyone who has messaged me and added me as a friend. I look forward to 'chatting' with you in the near future. Hope you are all well :)
I'm from NZ and joined this website last night. I thought I'd introduce myself. I'm currently doing a combination intermittent fasting, carb cycling, paleo and clean-eating. I've lost 10kg (22lbs) in the past 7 weeks since beginning my new personal plan but am down approx 18kg (39.6lbs) from my heaviest. I'm pretty pleased with that and know I have a long way to go.
I watched the documentaries (1st and 2nd one) over the weekend and downloaded the FS&ND book on Kindle last night then decided to sign up to this page. I've done quite a bit of research over the past 6 months while trying to find what works best for me. I've watched Fed-Up and other similar documentaries but I especially liked the information Joe gave about flooding the body with the right nutrients to repair the cells for optimum performance. It just makes sense to me. I like vege's but as I eat a high protein diet, it doesn't leave much space calorie wise for the vege's I feel I need. Currently I consume next to no fruit because of my calorie cap of 1500 - 1800 a day as well. I'm still sick and tired more often then I think I should be so I thought I'd start introducing juicing.
I've just purchased a Breville juicer for myself for mothers day so hoping it arrives today or tomorrow so I can start juicing this weekend and get the 'transitioning in' phase started over the next week or so. I'm not sure yet if or when I will do a full detox, or how long I will juice for as this will solely depend on the cost of produce and another discussion with my Doctor who I already know isn't too keen on eating plans like this. I'm a solo-parent so my budget is pretty tight, but I'm keen to start small and work up to it.
My goal overall is to lose another 80kg (176lbs) by the end of 2016. I'm 30 years old and its time I sort myself out for myself and my 4 year old daughter. I want to be able to purchase pretty clothes from regular stores, and be able to post full body photos (not just head-shot selfies at the right angle) and feel beautiful. I'd love to one day run a half marathon as well.
If you haven't already guessed, I a bit of a sharer. I'm keen to make new 'online buddies' and learn about you, your motivation and your goals, and about how you're starting your journey or how you've found your journey so far. I'd also appreciate any tips and guidance you think might help me on my journey.
Please reply here or send me a message / friend request.
Enjoy your day,
Cheers - Clauds

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!
