  • Why I've Joined Reboot with Joe: So, why am I doing again? I am even more ill than I was last time. I've spent days in the hospital with extremely high blood pressure, signs of an obvious stroke and spots in my bladder and kidneys. The only thing I've done right was to quit smoking and that was because my husband had a stroke. We both quit smoking that day. Well, I've got all my numbers as I was just in the hospital again this week. It's time to do the Reboot.

  • I AM SO OVER THIS!

    Hi, my name is Tovah and I began juicing about 30 days ago. (My juicing journey can be found at www.hautecurvywoman.com).

    I am writing this as just such an angry and frustrated person right now. I have been mostly juicing, having some yogurt and salads.

    In two weeks, I lost 11 pounds. I was thrilled with this. There has been no movement on the scale since then and I am just so disappointed in ANOTHER FAILED DIET!

    I felt that today, of all days, I needed some real food to eat. Some real protein, some real carbs. I jumped down my husband's throat because he said that I would be breaking my "fast". Well, I'm sick of the fast, I'm sick of the juicer, and I'm sick of fruits and vegetables.

    It just seems like everyone else has so many benefits from this and feel so good and I'm on day 30 and feel awful.

    I just made another stinking juice that I want to dump over my husband and dog's head.

    Please....if anyone can tell me how they got through the times like this, I would be so appreciative.

    My patience is gone at this point.

    Thanks,
    Tovah

    Hi all:

    I would like to thank everyone who took the time to reply to me with really thoughtful, constructive comments.

    So, of course, after I acted like a spoiled bra on these boardst, the next time I weighed myself (today), I was down another 2,5 pounds. This brings my total from the time I brought the juicer into my house (almost a month) almost 14 pounds gone and 5 inches off my waist.

    As I approach the end of this month, I am trying to figure which way I want to go with this. I do feel that I "rebooted my system" and I think that I will make better food choices.

    I go back and forth on the safety of juice cleansing for more than a few days, as I've been reading more and more about the bad effects of such a diet.

    Anyway, I still have a couple of days to figure it out and I know I'll make it to day 30, but it's been pretty rough, I must say. I'll be curious to see how many pounds I put back after I introduce some new foods into my system.

    I wish all of you the best.
    Tovah

    Hi everyone:

    So I made it my 30 days, mostly juicing and just having veggies and yogurt. on the side.

    I lost almost 14 pounds, which i was happy with.

    Unfortunately, Day 31 set me up for failure.

    Please check out my journey at www.hautecurvywoman.com and hit Juicing Journey.

    Do I stand a chance getting back on track?

    I'd love to see if any of you have faced this.

    Thank you so much,

  • AFTER THE REBOOT

    Hi everyone:

    I know that almost everyone on this board is doing their juice fasts.

    I completed my 30 day modified reboot with a total loss of about 12 pounds. Believe me, I'm not complaining. The juice fast/diet was very difficult for me, but I did make it to day 30.

    My body is not healthy enough to continue to juice for most of the day. Thus, I stopped at Day 40 (today) and went today with only my 2nd day of no juicing.

    Anyway, what I'm asking is if anyone would like to share our experiences with our food choices, health, tips, etc. on how we are actually doing AFTER THE REBOOT.

    I do feel that the reboot changed my eating habits. Salads taste wonderful to me; healthy soups are so wonderful on these cold days.

    Is this anything that anybody would be interested in?

    There wouldn't have to be a start date or end date and people could just jump into the forum when they are transitioning into regular food.

    For an idea of how I did for the last 40 days, here is my diary: http://www.hautecurvywoman.com/my-juicing-journey.html

    The first sign of stress and I lost it.

    http://www.hautecurvywoman.com/31/post/2013/01/day-49-juice-fastdiet-sunday.html

    Trying something different this time. Only juice; meaning that I will make twice as many juices as I did before so that I never get hungry.

    What do you guys think? Do I stand a chance?

    I just refuse to give up.

    I did do a modified fast for 30 days and I was quite happy with it.

    However, life got in the way and I gained all but 7 pounds (of the 13.5 pounds I'd lost), back.

    I felt like a new person when I was juicing and yesterday I went back to it, though I am now taking my time easing into it.

    If you're interested, here's the latest entry in my Juicing Journal: http://www.hautecurvywoman.com/my-juicing-journey.html.

    I would love to read about anyone else's successses or failures or to read other journals.

    All my best,
    Tovah

    So, I'm on my 3rd reboot.

    No. 1 went well. I lost weight, I felt amazing, and I looked the healthiest I have in a long time.

    Then, little by little, I fell back into bad habits.

    I would love for you to follow my journey and add in any tips and tricks you have found and I will share mine.

    Here's my Juicing Journal: http://www.hautecurvywoman.com/my-juicing-journey.html.

    I have been doing a modified juice fast/diet and I still lost almost 1 pound every other day.

    I would LOVE to read other's blogs, with what's worked and what hasn't worked.

    All my best,

  • Day 63: An Epic Fail

    I had done really well for 30 days.

    Once I stopped juicing, I introduced more and more bad foods into my diet. I know that it's not healthy to stay on the juice fast, yet I appear to be unable to switch my foods back into the healthy realm. It takes just a few days for everything to go back to the way it was.

    If anyone knows of any way I can do this, I would be so appreciative.

    Here is today's entry in my Juicing Journey Journal:

    Any suggestions will be more than appreciated.

  • My Progress after 15 and 30 days juicing

    For those of you who are new to juicing, I thought you might be interested in the changes that occured with me at the 15 day point and at the 30 day point.

    I admit that I was the worst eater and dieter in the world.

    After I bought the juicer, I was determined to make it work. There were lots of ups and downs, but I made it through.

    Here is my story.

    I wish all of you the very best.

    Trust me. I have zero discipline and I basically made it through the 30 days, with a couple of detours and the benefits for me were pretty immense.

    I know that I need to get back on the wagon again, but the dfference it made in my sleep, skin and mood was truly amazing.

    Anyway, I kept a journal if you want to check it out.

    Here's the first 2 weeks: http://www.hautecurvywoman.com/7/post/2012/12/summary-of-my-juicing-fast-1st-2-weeks.html

    Here's at the end of 30 days: http://www.hautecurvywoman.com/7/post/2013/01/finished-30-day-juice-diet.html

    I did try again a couple of months ago, which can be seen on MY JUICING JOURNEY and I did have alot of difficulties, but I tried to be extremely honest about how I managed through the ups and downs.

    I don't care what anyone says. It is NOT easy, but it gets easier. I did need to make a couple of modifications due to my own health issues, but I was very happy with the end results.

    So..I hope I've helped someone.

    I know I will be back on these boards again soon and I appreciate all the help that all the people here have given me and I would be so happy to help anyone else out.

    I wish all of you the best.

    However, I'm ready to reboot and I have a question:: Can I use the supermarket juices like Odwalla?

    I know that it wouldn't be exactlly the same? But would it be somwhat of a cleansing diet?

    I'm getting ready to start my reboot tomorrow and am trying to make up my shopping list. I'm finding just too much conflicting information. The first couple of weeks do I only do fruit juices or is it good to mix up both veggie and fruit? I'm not even sure what recipes are best to use. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
