Just a quick update...

First, I changed my ticker. A lot of people make small goals at the beginning of their journey, but I usually do things the hard way = ) Staring at that giant number of "pounds needed to lose" seemed to motivate me more than 10 pound increments. Now, it seems the closer I get to seeing my goal, that sadder I get STILL seeing that big number. In order for me to no longer be "obese" and simply just "over weight" I would have to lose half of my starting weight. What a great goal to focus on! Losing half of my starting weight AND becoming "just overweight" at the same time, excellent!
Also, I've been on solids for an entire week now. After juicing for 7 days and losing 6.5 pounds, I was VERY nervous about gaining the weight back. I continued to juice for breakfast but ate regular food the rest of the day. I'm happy to report I lost 2 more pounds this week. My workouts were the same both weeks, the only thing that was different was the juicing. I would say it was definitely a positive experience.
Finally, I just wanted to say how awesome my sparkfriends are. This is a tough journey, and being surrounded by people that get it, has made it SO much easier. All the support and love had made a HUGE difference. Thank you all SO much = ) I hope everyone enjoys the rest of their weekend!
