Back to Juice Fast - Day 1 of 5


Monday, August 29, 2011


Dear Sparkfriends:

I wish I could be reporting good news that I've been able to continue to lose weights even when I am not on Juice Fast. Sorry to say, that's not the case. I fell off the wagon big time. I think the problem was that I lost the focus of my "diet" life. On juice fast, the plan was simple. The choices were limited. Juice only. Once I stared to allow myself to eat food again, the old me showed up pretty quickly. For last Friday and Saturday, I was able to hold my ground and eat fruits, veggies and nuts only. Even though I was stuffing myself to the point my tummy hurts. Yes, lots of fruits and veggies. Then yesterday I just gave into the temptation and ate a lot of chips, chocolates and ice creams. I was having such a terrible time sleeping last night. It's guilt that I can't bear with.

I've come to realize that I was not having a plan that's workable for me. In order to get rid of my "evil twin", I need a detailed food plan and food allowance that I can stick to. I also found out that raw food diet is hard, really.... I was seriously wanting some hot food.

It's Monday. Fresh start of the week. I am going to make an effort to back to Juice fast again while rethink what I can do better come this Saturday. I'll be reporting my daily progress this week, so you all can be my accountability partners.

Thank you so much for being here for me!

    I like what TOOFATFORFORTY shared about her poster.

I have heard it said that when we eat and are stressed (like feeling guilty) that the food does not digest well, the hormone that helps store fat (cortisol) is increased and that defeats our efforts.

The solution...

WHEN YOU SPLURGE, SET A LIMIT, ENJOY IT THOROUGHLY AND GET BACK ON TRACK TOMORROW.

You are doing great. And you get right back on track.

You are an inspiration.

Keep Sparking!

    Hang in there. You are back on track and long before you gained it all back. Well done! That in its self is a plan.

I do agree with you on hot food, it is hard to give up, but you CAN do this.

    Having a plan and sticking with it is important for me, too (those unplanned snacks are killer derailers!). Raw does sound hard. There's no reason you couldn't do juice for one meal (like breakfast) since it works so well for you and make the other meals high in fruits/veggies/nuts/beans/etc with very little meat and just cut out the junk. It might take some experimenting but I'm sure you'll find a plan that works for you. Good for you for keeping at it!

    If raw is to hard, how about vegan with NO processed foods. Then there would be no chance of Chocolate, chips or ice cream.

I think you are still doing Fantastic!

    There's a poster at my work place, intended for something totally different, but I think it applies here.

View Failures as Opportunities
Seek the truth and end the blame game.
No real improvement can occur unless we openly acknowledge our failures.
After all, if we donít know when and where our processes fail, we canít possibly know what to fix. And we can never improve.

Sounds to me like you've got everything under control. Keep it up!
