  • About: Today, I am 5'11 and weigh 260 lbs, A little about myself, years ago I swam in college, distance freestyle, also did triathlons. Over the years, I've yoyo'd with the diets, seldom did I exercise and now, I'm overweight and motivated to get back to the youthful years. I'm gonna juice until Halloween 2015, hopefully get down to under 230lbs. To top it off, I am a sugar addict. There it is, I've said it. Lets See how bad I want to change!!!
  • Why I've Joined Reboot with Joe: Its time to get in shape, time to get motivated, time to stick to something longer than a few days. Time to get healthy.
  • Favorite Juice? Peach Pie Juice

    Breakfast went well with the grapefruit, ginger & cranberries. Lunch was dinner because I slept for 9 hours and it was carrots, ginger & apple. It's 10:43 so I'll end the evening with caffeine-free tea. Tomorrow is a new day.

    Hi Mateo, I'm starting a 60 day today. Even though I don't have friends where I live to encourage me I do believe this online friends will help me. I have you and a lady friend to encourage me on Reboot with Joe. I don't have a favorite juice at this time however when I find one, I'll post it.

    Take care. Oh by the way, I'm in Pittsburgh, PA and am willing to do all that I can to lose 120 lbs. or more.

    Hi Mateo,

    Thanks for posting the encouraging reply to me yesterday. I just read through your bio and feel even more inspired. Yesterday was particuarly hard day for me and I ate 4 pieces of cauliflower. Cauliflower has never tasted so good. Your suggestions to distract when the cravings are bad was good. I dd play outside with my dog for a while yesterday. And ofcourse I ht the bed early. Wishing you all sucess. Kepp updating us about your progress.

    Mateo thank you for your kind post on my wall. I am so enjoying this time of my life right now. I have tons of energy, I feel great and I'm seeing results that I could never have imagined. Today is day 54 and I am down 50 lbs. I'm considering to keep up juicing longer to help support my wife as completes a 30 day juice. How are you doing with your progress?

    Mateo, how is your weight loss coming along. Are you strickly just juicing or are you eating as well? Really hoping for all the best for you. Feeling better and showing your son you can do this will be quite the accomplishment.

    I am personally amazed by my own success and I can't even take too much credit. The cravings had disappeared quite early into my 10 day detox. I felt so good I decided to see what 60 days wold look like. I am into my 46 day and I am down 45lbs. I started at 229 lbs and now I'm down to 184lbs.I haven't weighted that little in 20 years. My family, freinds and co-workers are all blown away. They all know how much I loved my food, and can't believe I've gone this far , & neither can I. Mateo run with this as far as you can.

    All the best to you.

    Thanks Bruce the Juice, I'm amazed with your progress...I hope you wife tracks how she does, she you did amazing. I am only juicing. Its hard at work because my colleagues eat really bad...but I'm getting the hang of taking my juice and telling people no thanks when they offer me something bad. Thanks for friending me.

    I just read your bio and I am moved by you determination. Getting healthy and losing those extra pounds will make the world of difference in getting in shape. The pounds will just slide off as you continue to juice. It really is mind blogging that it can be that easy to get health and thinner. I'll be cheering you on, knowing that this something you can do. All the best, Mateo.
