Okay, so I didn't quite make it to 30 days.. but I did make it to my original goal of 21 days! I decided to stop for a number of reasons I won't get into, but I will say I do not feel defeated and I'm glad about my decision. I'm eating mostly fruits and vegetables, a little bit of whole grains and a bit of nuts. I am going to continue on like this for the foreseeable future.
This summer I'm going to be living in a very small, very remote, town. In which I will be trying my best to eat well - but its very difficult. Fresh food is VERY expensive. My plan is to maintain my weight during this time, which is a goal in itself, I've never not gained weight while there. So, my intention is to maintain, and then when I get home in September, do another juice fast to hopefully get down to my goal weight. I'm really only 10 pounds away from my goal weight. So hopefully by this time next year I'll just be focusing on improving my fitness level! But if I've learned anything from diet-media, the last 10 pounds are the hardest. I think I've read upwards of 100 articles or magazines titled "How to lose those last 10 pounds", "drop those last pesky 5!"... etc. So we'll see! I'm hoping juicing will help with that a lot.
