its been a while!

Sunday, July 28, 2013

I know that I have not had very much to say for myself for quite a while! I have been trying to deal with my anxiousness which has been much worse these past few weeks. I have managed to keep up with my exercise routine but that has been about it!!

I made a really big decision last Monday; I am trying the juice fast diet; its been six days so far and I have lost 12lb so far. I have not eaten anything else - no bread no meat no sweets no chocolate no sneaky cakes or cookies or pastries, no alcohol. It is actually working, I know its not a long term solution, but I was struggling even when I was tracking all I ate.

I am hoping that this juice fast will cure my addiction to toast, etc.!!

    Hang on there sweetie! I'm struggling with a bout of depressive state myself, but you seem doing better and you are proactive.

That's indeed a great and challenging decision you took. Kudos and congrats on your weight loss!
I should also try a one-week detox juice diet to boost my metabolism.

    Sorry you have been feeling anxious Sarah. I know what that is like, I suffer a little anxiety. But my daughter gets it really badly where she can't leave the house to do what she should be doing. I hope that is getting better.
That is good you have got back on track by doing the juice diet. Twelve pounds that is great. Do be careful though when you eat normally, as it could be really easy to put some of that back on.
That is funny we all have different foods that can make us go off track with/for. I sometimes even go off track having too much of my healthy eating foods. Biscuits are one of mine, and I have my first client every morning after her shower I make her and me a cuppa. And she has a few biscuits for her first meal of the day. I used to have a couple of bikkis with her. But now I don't and she keeps commenting on that. But at home if my cookie monster son leaves biscuits lying around, I can be tempted. It can be hard too living with people who are eating other food which can be dangerous for our eating plans. We haven't bought ice cream with the shopping for weeks-which is good for me.
That is great you are doing your exercises Sarah. And great you are back on track with your eating too. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    I saw the documentary "Fat, Sick, and nearly dead" recently. These 2 guys do an extended juice fast to lose weight and get tons of micro-nutrients. They both had a rare auto- immune disease when they started and, because of all the micro-nutrients, they were getting, their health greatly improved. I could never do a full juice fast but I would be interested in having one juice per day to get all those vitamins. I hope you have success on this fast. Keep us posted!

    Congrats on the weight loss! Plateaus are so frustrating, especially when you are tracking and exercising and nothing seems to help. Good luck reaching your goals!

    It seems like it is working for you - which is great. When you start to reintroduce foods you may find it easier to keep a more controlled approach to certain items. Really interested to hear how it goes for you.

    Much success to you. Sometimes, a juice fast helps to break a plateau or jump start your weight loss. You have to do what works for you. Keep up the good work!

    I've never heard of the juice fast diet. What do you have to do/eat? That's a lot of weight to lose - good for you!
