This is so hard!

Saturday, April 26, 2014

Today is day 4, and I know that doesn't sound like a lot...and it might not even be a lot...but I don't go a day without food let alone 4. I surprisingly found this juice fast pretty easy up until this very second. Right now...well right now I would really like a cake (yes,a whole cake), a steak & cheese, or something equally hideous for me, or maybe even all of the above. I have a taste for nothing in particular, yet everything at the same time. I am starving, but not hungry. Basically, I'm at the irrational point I get to during most diets where I feel it isn't worth it, and I don't care to lose weight anyway!!! I'm happy with myself, right? I talk myself into throwing the diet out the window and then feel ridiculously guilty later. Yes, I'm at that point...and I'm trying to talk myself out of it with this post. I am incredibly motivated but not so incredibly consistent and I'm trying to break that cycle. Mind over matter right? I mean in the large scheme of things 60 days is not very long. I have a 12 year old and I can't begin to tell you how quickly 12 years flew by...so why, oh why does 60 days seem like a life time? I'm trying to breathe...and I'm praying that tomorrow is a better day...and I'm praying even harder that I make it to tomorrow. I did not expect to come so close to utter destruction so quickly...fingers crossed :)

    Please be careful with fasting. It's only useful in very short-term situations. EAT. You must eat nutritiously to be truly successful in a weight loss plan.
    Track your food intake, follow Spark People's plan, and you WILL lose weight.
    Be safe. Ask questions.
    YOU are important to us all and YOU can do anything! emoticon

    Okay, so today would be day 5. emoticon
    There is a video being released today (you can watch on line for free for the next 7 days) called:
    Super Juice Me.
    Look it up.
    I'm off to watch it right now.
    And remember, the feeling you were having, WILL pass. I logged the calories for Joe Cross's plan and it is well over 1200 calories, so your body is just detoxing and pushing through this phase will be super rewarding.

    I watched FAT SICK AND NEARLY DEAD as well, and you "eat" about 4# of vegetables with the Juice Fast. (I don't know WHY they call it as FAST when you are taking in a good amount of calories, but I guess it gets more attention.)

    I'd chew sugarless gum if I were you. But do know this diet is about getting toxins out of your body, so you probably are at that point starting with day four.

    Well, I watched Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead and I felt really inspired. I've never fasted so I want to try it for 60 days and then follow a more reasonable approach that incorporates juice. THANK YOU SO MUCH!

    I am sorry you are having a challenge with this. However, I don't understand why you are only juicing. I personally need the chewing satisfaction to feel like I ate. I know that is not an issue with everyone.
    emoticon I hear how determined you are. I am sure you will find a path that works for you and reach your health goals. emoticon
