Wrapped up my 30 day reboot two days ago on Sunday -- my starting weight on day 1 was 243 and on day 30 it was 219. 24 pound loss is just over 4 weeks is not too shabby at all -- particularly with no noticeable ill effects. A good start to my long term goal getting down to 180.
Two days later, after a day and a half of sensible meals of solid food, I'm still at 219. Happy that I haven't seen a bounce back which I had mentally prepared for. I'll be juicing for dinner this evening just reinforce it as a continuing habit and help with further weight reduction. After dinner last night, I can see that it would be VERY easy for me to slip back into eating more food than I need to satiate my hunger. I MUST get better about that -- I somehow need to constantly remind myself to eat slowly and thoughtfully.
Juicing got me used to spending time in the kitchen preparing (and cleaning up after) my own meals so I'm now helping my wife prepare meals -- something she is enjoying very much. Were putting extra effort into making the meals vegetable and whole grain strong, with an emphasis on variety and taste over quantity. Even better, our two teen kids liked my first post-reboot dinner, even though they didn't try everything. I was expecting them to be repelled. Perhaps there is hope for my whole family to join in on a much healthier diet.
