Down 30 lbs today, feeling good!

Monday, July 22, 2013

Hey all!

Today, I hit my -30 mark. I'm happy to be here.

I have mostly been juicing. It really takes a commitment, but I haven't cheated. There have been a couple of times that I've been out and didn't have juice with me, so I substituted melon or a banana. But that works for me.

I definitely consume wildly more fruits and vegetables while juicing. It makes me feel refreshed and healthy, honestly.

Things I've noticed:

* Tying my shoes doesn't make me huff and puff like it sometimes did.
* I don't pop Tums all of the time.
* I'm not constantly yawning and wanting coffee. I did give up coffee while I'm juicing, too, but that's been less of a challenge than I thought.
* I'm pretty awake as soon as I wake up. I don't grog around half the morning. I feel alert.

Grandma says I'm losing too much weight too fast. You know when I started? July 1. Seriously. I see her point, but I feel great, and never lightheaded or dizzy or anything. I needed something to get me going. I wasn't feeling like doing anything. At least now I like to go out for a walk.

Happy Monday everybody.

    Everyone does what works for them and this is obviously working for you. At some point do you plan to slowly reintroduce healthy foods besides just the juicing? I did a diet awhile back where I ate this soup and certain foods each day. It was amazing and I lost a ton of weight, but when I started eating normal again I gained back more than I lost. I don't want to see you get discouraged from backsliding later. What is your long-term plan?

    Heck yes! And as long as this is sustainable for you (and it seems like you like the benefits too much to stop, so it is) then you'll keep it off. Good for you. :)
