Last post was one month ago, the day of the CF event. I fell off the wagon for a month. I'm back on and currently on day 7 with a 8.4lb weight loss. Boom.
day 40, I'm still alive and 26 pounds less than I was on day 1. I've been busy with coordinating a two-day fundraiser for Cystic Fibrosis. Today was day 1 and everything went very well.
Thanks for accepting the invite!
Day 28. 22.9 pounds down.
I purchased protein powder for juice & will incorporate more exercise starting today. I found the mix was too gritty, so I'll be making a protein powder shot & not putting in my juice.
I use the Vega brand and the Vanilla is actually very good.
Day 23. 20.7 pounds down.
After two weeks of eating cereal (voluntarily) so I wouldn't be bothered by the smell of food, the boyfriend busted out the Mac & Cheese tonight. Buttface.
Oh well, I must overcome my temptations. The amount of support he has given me through all of this is incredible.
P.S. If anyone stumbles upon a juice recipe that tastes like Mac & Cheese.....
My share for 9/21/15:
Two people contacted me over the weekend to find out more about juicing. One bought a juicer from a yard sale (the one who swore she would not diet & would eat Cheetos until the day she died, happy.) The other called and said "I did it! I bought fruits & veggies and want to start tomorrow. Can I use my Vita-mix?"
I told them about us. Our community & wealth of information. No pyramid schemes, no charge, no subscriptions, - just support & answers to a variety of questions.
DOODAH - wazzap, girl? How's it going? I just want to say how much I love your post to me about not sucking at life. I've read it a few times now and I laugh every time. Thanks for being you.
ALSO - so you have this retro look going on, very 40s/50s glamour pinup thing. I have been trying to master that for years. I have the face for it but can't get the hair to cooperate, despite buying several pictorial books on the subject (true story!). How do you pull it off?
Thank you, TexasT! I am looking for the video that taught me how :) -I will be back with the link.
I have very fine/thin hair & this method works every time without falling flat.
I have fine but thick hair- exasperating combination. So much great hair that just lays there and refuses to do anything under its own weight. Maddening!
LOVE the video- great tutorial! Do you use these products as well?
Yes, I love the product. The curl holds all day! :)
Day 16. 17 pounds down.
I started juicing on August 31st, 2015. I live in a glorious rural town where there isn't any fast food (I know, I got lucky lol). I am headed to town today for a 5k Mud Factor run that takes place on Sunday. Heading to town for me involves travelling for 4 hours and staying in a hotel for the next couple of days.
I am posting this because I actually thought about bending my commitment the other night. Just one time, then I would get back on the wagon. ......lame sauce...... I decided to search for a reason not too on the internet & boom; here you all are! Struggling with exactly the same thing that I am.
What I have done to prepare myself for the next couple days in town with temptation. 1. Join a group 2. Be honest with myself & keep fighting temptation 3. I purchased a compact juicer, so I don't have to take the big mamojama to the hotel with me 4. Find juice joints & save the directions - just in case we are out & "get too busy to head back to the hotel for juice" lol 5. Love the way that I feel when I am strong 6. Believe that I have it in me, to conquer what makes me overweight 7. Ask for motivation when I need it 8. No matter what. Ask for motivation. when. I. need. it.
I can do this. I am going in the kitchen to prepare my juice for the day & pack the remainder of fruits & veggies in my fridge for the road. .....sigh..... 16 pounds lost, less of a double chin & I feel wonderful. I know why I started, I just have to keep going. I am invited to dinner tonight at a real restaurant (we don't have them where I live) & guess what bold move I will be doing? Bringing my own dinner - Gazpacho juice, and drinking it right at the table.

Ready to get rid of all that extra weight and junk we packed on during the holidays? I started and led a successful 15-Day Reboot this past January, which the group extended to 30 days. We'll do the same here: start with a standard 15-Day Reboot, and then extend if desired by the group, or not. I log in each and every day and offer my support to any of you who are new or struggling. You are guaranteed daily support if you join this group! Experienced Rebooters can also experience success and good times on your Reboot, so join in!

Welcome new Members! Finding the videos of fellow juicers has never been easier! On a Juice Fast, Modified Fast or Reboot? Share your daily or weekly videos with us. This is a safe environment - non judgmental and supportive to newbies and experienced juicers alike. I'm not asking for the kind of respect reserved for nuns, the elderly, and brain surgeons. Just be mindful of your comments and don't abuse the individuals in this group. This is a place where people can without fear share their journey. Even if you think that your comment might be funny or written in a joking manner, it may actually be hurtful and insulting to someone else. We don't all share the same sense of humor. Please comment only if you have something nice to say, an encouragement or advice. Questioning someone's practices, progress, validity or lecturing them is NOT permitted in this group! I trust you to be responsible & Let's follow this path towards health and happiness together! =) HERE IS THE LINK TO THE VIDEO PLAYLIST WHERE U WILL FIND MY ENTIRE 100 DAY JUICE JOURNEY IN CHRONOLOGICAL ORDER: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLptUyMqs2ID3c7ByocbnZPvTrAmwtEaic AND HERE IS THE LINK TO THE BREAKING MY JUICE FAST PLAYLIST: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLptUyMqs2ID3ggWVCt86ZLCAFmIWFTqnH

JOIN ME!!! I have a challenge for us... Let's do this for 30 days!! If you fall off just get back up!! But see... We WON'T fall off! Let's prove to ourselves that we are capable of doing this. LET'S BE A TEAM! Let's start living a healthier lifestyle. You even being on this site is already a start. I need some motivation and I can motivate you as well. Let's help eachother out. Let's stop trying and start doing. It may be hard but it isn't impossible. WE can work together and push eachother. On our days when we feel like giving up, let's speak up and seek some words of encouragement. I'm starting today but even if you see this post late, STILL join. I will push you and help you reach your goals. If you're not joining, I would appreciate any advice or any words to motivate or inspire me. I'm on day one and I'm fighting! I'll be posting my recipes and experience day by day until WE reach 30 days. If you stop after 30 days, don't go back to old habits! EAT HEALTHIER and excersice. Do it for your own good. Love yourself enough to make this change. Question for you... Do you want to be happier? Do you want to feel more energy? Live longer? Be able to do things you were never able to? THEN START TODAY AND SEE THE CHANGE YOU WANT TO SEE. I know you want to look into the mirror and see a difference for once. Trust yourself and give this your all. Change begins with YOU. Remember that hard work pays off and great things require hard work. Btw, a BIG thanks to Joe! You helped me start TODAY and stop making excuses.
