    Today is your opportunity. Will you seize it or forgo it for something else, some easier alternative and if you do let go of this moment, will you be satisfied or left with regret? The choice is yours to make.

    Day 3 begins.

    I haven't been here it quite a while, I've been living a full and very unhealthy lifestyle and nearly all my gains have been lost, with the exception of being med-free. I'm still med-free and have been since my first reboot a year and a half ago.

    Lately I've been feeling foggy in the brain, slow and the heartburn has returned. Time for a real reboot once more to dial all systems back to green. This is day2.

    Start of day 4 and I'm down 6 pounds; yesterday was fairly hellish, but I got through it, feeling much better today.

    To date, I have been unsuccessful in shedding the final inches from my waist. I keep rebounding to a very specific weight, which I can only assume is my current body set-point. It's finally no longer snowy where I live and the sun is up, so I'm going to focus hard and endure the pain of shrinking for all of May, I want to start summer at my goal.

    I recently had the good fortune to find myself on vacation in the tropics. While there, my oldest son decided he'd like to teach himself to swim. We were on holiday for 2 weeks and for the first week and a half I stood in the pool next to him while he basically drowned himself over and over again, determined to learn on his own. When he was out of breath, I'd put my arm out for him to latch onto. He'd catch his breath and try again. Over and over, hour after hour, day after day. Finally, on day 9 of our trip, he jumped in, went under, kicked up, broke free of the surface and stayed up treading water. I smiled and had no words. I was just so proud of him and more importantly he was proud of himself. As I reflected on that trip after my return I realized my son had given me the recipe for success in life. Try until you get the result you want, no matter how long it takes and surround yourself with people who will lend a hand when you're completely "out of air".

    To all you juicers I say, juice on and don't fret about the stumbles here and there, don't worry yourselves with whether or not you binged on a meal or didn't quite reach the weight you wanted the day you wanted it. Don't worry about any of it. Just keep trying. Try everyday, try, try, try and when you feel you've nothing left, come here and read posts from others who will lend a hand and let you "catch your breath." Together we can succeed. Together we can reclaim our health and quality of life. Juice on!

    I just returned from vacation, I didn't do the best job of eating healthily, but I didn't exactly care either. I was at a place where juice was not readily available, but I did manage to eat whole foods (mostly). I gained five pounds back, but I think it will come off very easily. I decided not to weigh myself much anymore, because it doesn't really mean anything and it's quite frustrating at times. Instead, I've decided on a measurement I want my waist to be and that's my target, because once I reach that number, it won't matter what my weight it; my proportions will be correct. I have four inches to go...
