juice fast day 11

Sunday, May 05, 2013

Hey! I tried on some smaller clothes and they fit. Woohoo. I am not going to weigh myself. I don't want to deal with that, but I am definitely getting smaller. It felt so good going out today in a smaller size. It was like wearing fancy underwear. Is that a silly analogy? probably. It is sort of like, others don't know me and know that the clothes I am wearing have been sitting around unworn for a long while, so it isn't special to them. It is just special to me, sort of like fancy underwear that is hidden and known by only myself.

The body image thing is still a problem. I know I am smaller, but I still see a heavy person. I can't really say that I see too much of a change. I do know that my skin is glowing. I don't even have to wear blush or concealer. Not a blemish in sight.

So I am staying strong and sticking with the juice. I think it is cheaper than eating regular food. A few bags of kale, spinach, carrots and you are good for a few days.

Anyway, I am not hungry, except when I am cooking for the family. So I am trying to get my kids to do some cooking or I am just trying to do things that don't have a lot of smell. I am also being careful to do the majority of my juice in the afternoon when I have the greatest difficulty.

stay strong

    SimCyn, I have the same issue with you. I don't know why when I was heavier I saw myself as thinner and now that I am thinner I still see my heavy self. I am hoping that with tapping and time things will change and we will be able to get things straight in our heads.

    Wayyyyyyyyy tooooooooooo Goooooooooooooooo on wearing smaller clothes. It takes a while for others to notice and it depends on how much you have to lose. My sis has lost 32 lbs in 54 days but the total since she started is about 75. People didn't say anything to her until she lost about 40 and it was mostly comments like: oh you look so nice, is that a new haircut? Now they stop her and go OH WOW... How much weight have you lost!!!
    So hang in there. Write down your small victories so you can see them pilling up. You are doing so great! And clear skin???? woohooo!

    Smell triggers memories too. So it makes sense that when you are cooking that you would have the biggest issues :D Keep it up and Keep juicing!
    Before you know it you will be at day 60! It goes by faster than you think.

    Way to go, needing clothes in only 11 days !!! I can't wait to need a smaller size. I don't want to go buy clothes for my fat size.

    Hey that Sweet potato juice tasted heavenly !!! I never have had anything like that. It made just under a quart and was super filling, very satisfying. emoticon

    I'm glad that you are doing well. It sounds as if juicing is really purifying your system.
    Hopefully in time, you will be happy with your body image and can go to eating three healthy meals per day and maintaining your loss.
