30 Day Juice Journey -- Day 2
Well, I decided to keep a log of my experiences during my 30 day juicing journey. I recently watched a film called, "Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead" that was very eye-opening for me. In it, a man named Joe Cross goes on a trip through the United Stat... Read more
I'm realizing this whole thing is a journey of greater magnitude than I thought. I've watched so many stories of weight loss on YouTube, here on SparkPeople and other places, and they all have one thing in common -- Everyone struggles to keep th... Read more
Back in the Saddle
I'm not going to say much today. Just that I'm working on getting my groove back. I never stopped working on losing. I've just been trying to do it without depending on calorie counting and Sparking consistently. I guess I'm not quite up to that... Read more
5 Things I'm Doing Right
Well, I've had some very slow progress here recently, but in the last week or so, my progress has picked up tremendously. So, I thought I would jot down a few notes on what I'm doing differently right now just in case I need a jump start in the ... Read more
Proud of Myself
I feel quite accomplished today. I had a 'dreaded' family dinner last night. These events always make me nervous, because I normally stop eating around 4 in the afternoon to give my food time to digest before I go to bed. I also get cravings whe... Read more
I reached an important milestone today. I officially weigh less than my husband. I've been trying to get him to weigh in regularly so I could figure out when the switch-over happened. He kept losing (for no good reason, like most men), so when I... Read more
Finally hit the 30 lbs. Lost Mark!

Learning and Accepting....
Well, I had a couple of setbacks this week, so I haven't hit my 30 lbs. yet. I have to believe there are things I still need to learn. I'm willing to accept that, and embrace where I am. 30 lbs. will come when it's supposed to. In the meantime, ... Read more

Sabotaging Self Sabotage
This month I've learned that weekends aren't free. I've gained and lost the same 2 lbs. for 3 weekends in a row. No more. I tightened it up this weekend, and I already like the results. I'm on track to lose 30 lbs. this week. I almost can't beli... Read more
Getting Used to Disappointing People
Well, tonight I was supposed to go to dinner with the in-laws. That didn't happen. I had all my calories by my usual time today -- 4pm. My husband was really disappointed when I called him to tell him I didn't think I should go, and that maybe t... Read more

Blocking my Own Progress?
I'm realizing I'm attempting to sabotage my own efforts by revealing them to my loved ones. I'm throwing my new found beliefs about weight loss and mind/body alignment out there, and waiting for them to be challenged or rejected. That gives me f... Read more
I find I'm becoming less of a brat when it comes to things I won't allow myself to have much of. I think. Like beef and pork -- and now cappuccino. I haven't really lost this week, and I think it's due in large part to the cappuccinos I've been ... Read more
