My name is Mag. I am 48 years old and have one daughter who is in middle school. I joined SparkPeople back in 2007 in this long weight lost journey. I would lose some weight and then gain it back in the past 5 years.

I seriously started changing my way of eating in June 2012 after reading Dr. Fuhrman's book "Eat To Live" - I lost 15 pounds following his advice loosely.

Then in September I saw the documentary "Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead" and it changed my life. Then that I saw "Forks over Knife" and I was ready for the change. It has been a re-education for me on food that heals.

I started my 60 day juice fast October 1st, 2013. - I lost 28.5 lbs on the fast - making a total lost since June of 43.5 lbs.

I am hoping to lose another 47 lbs to reach my goal of of 145 . I am 5'-4" tall

I Just need to motivate myself to excersice on the Wii fit ach day or Wii Zumba. I have tried every diet under the sun that I have heard of, I lost a lot some weight, but gained it ALL back just as quickly. I did Weight Watchers a couple of time and like it, but never had great success with it - would always get stuck in a plato and then give up.

I am so tired of this yoyo and I am very serious about losing this weight. I am tired of been overweight and unhealthy. I used to love shopping and now I hate it - I want to love shopping again and feeling good in my clothes, not hiding in them.

    Hopefulhippo I have kept it off and I have lost an additional 14 pounds since coming off the juice fast. I have not gone back to eating the way I used to. I still have fruit juice in the morning and a veggie juice at least 3-4 times a week (trying to do it every day). I also have a big salad once a day to fill me up before dinner.

    Hopping to go back and do another 30 days of juice fast in March. I still have 47 pounds to lose to reach my goal weight. So many of my clothes no longer fit me - I have a huge bag of clothes to give away or donate.

    How's it been trying to keep off the weight since finishing the fast? I know that's where I would gain it back and more, but I've never finished the 60 days either...
