    I was thinking the same thing, to just start juicing. I watched the webcam thing today, I think she said we could start juicing straight off but I'm too hungry and weak to remember LOL .. just kidding, she actually said she wants us to ease into the juicing AND she said we can eat fruit and vegs as they are part of the reboot, but she wasn't clear about doing this for the juicing part. If we can eat an apple, pear or whatever when we feel like falling off, then I can totally do this thing for months!! I'm a binge eater too, I think that's how I gained all this weight. I'm glad you're still doing this, we just have to do our honest best thats all we can do. Once we binge girls know we can still have something, I think that makes it easier for us. I hated the lemonade juice.. OMG.. freaking yuck!! The mean drink is great :) AND the soup I'm making, your kids would even like it. Lunch day 3 soup,. hehe.. talk soon friend and I bet tomorrow the scale will have gone down for both of us. xo

    Hey girl, are you hiding? :O you HAVE to do this with me :D I think being a single mom and having all the food the kids eat around is going to be a challenge for moms trying to juice. Maybe treat it like a medication thing, where your doctor gave you strict orders to juice for 10 days,.. it's just 10 days.. it's no different from having to do things post op, right? Believe me, I nearly bombed and I may still but fuck I hope not!! lol Not again, the only way I believe I'm doing this is because I feel so bad for my body and also I'm a bit selfish and want to fit into a nice soft pair of faded jeans!! Yeah? IF youve bombed, start the juice full on today as the 10 days hasn't started and that's when you're going to drop the big pounds.. so try to take it easy and don't binge today, you are gorgeous and funny and you need to "regain " your life right? I'm focusing on 10 days.. 10 days only, and we'll see after that. Plus, if I'm having a bad day I'm going to eat a few nuts or seeds it won't mess up the juice as whatshisname said we can eat nuts and seeds.. get out that saddle and buckle up hehe x J

    Not hiding :) Today was a little rough. Tired and a banger on a headache. I took a 3 hour nap! I was thinking of doing the straight juice, I'm a binge eater and when I get to eat it makes it harder. I hope you're doing great my friend and I am right here with ya! To health, happiness and looking smokin' in our jeans!

    Hi Phoenix Rising,

    I know you can do it, you are a strong single mom! I was a single mom for 18 years and it's tough, you do what you have to do because no one else is going to. So apply that strategy and let's change our life's together. All the best.

    Thank you Janis! My daughter is 22 and my reason for being. She is one of my main reasons for doing this. Since putting on all this weight (AGAIN) I have dropped out of living. I haven't done anything fun with her and when she visits we just sit at home :( I barely even have a couple pics of her and I together. Down the road, when we someday look back at our pics and fun times, it will seem like I disappeared for 3 years! Makes me sad!

    Today however, is about being HAPPY & Hopeful! Yes, let's change our lives together! We can do it! It's all laid out for us for the taking! Wee hee!
