Hi! New to the team, I am an extreme veggie hater, but want to start juicing! For me, it isnt the taste of veggies and fruit, it is the texture. My goal is to go for 60 days, however , ill be taking it a few days at a time. Need a fasting buddy desperately!

I'm out, I'm afraid, but eating reasonably and losing bit by bit. I think I can only commit to 1-3 day cleanses at this point.
Good luck to you, Mr. Freeze! I'll keep up on your progress via your SparkPage.

Having trouble sticking to it, but I'm still doing juice for breakfast and lunch.

I've lost 8 pounds (from 341) though, so will just keep plugging and hope my dedication kicks in. I have to keep thinking that being lighter, which means less pain from arthritis and spondylolisthesis, is a much better choice than solid food.

I'm working on delaying gratification, but at 51, it's hard to break old patterns. But I can do it!

Is your fast still going well? Anyone lurking out there who is trying to do a fast?
Good luck to us!

I've been slow in getting there, but started today. I think I've been delaying because I'm not sure I'm 100% committed to 60 days. Well, I'm 100% committed to today. I'll start and take it one day at a time.
Hope things are going well, MFTAGGFREEZE. You're my role model...no pressure. :-)
Anyone else out there currently doing a fast?

SPRITLE..... I did the numbers and realized I'd be breaking the fast a day before thanksgiving and said Wow!

I don't believe that would be a good day to stop, so I will probably attempt to extend it a few days after.

This is not my first fast. I completed thirty day earlier this year and started and stopped two since then.

I really love the way this makes me feel........ so get your shopping done and join on in.

I think I'm right behind you. Hope to shop tomorrow and start on Monday.
Do you realize 60 days takes you right up to Thanksgiving? Great timing!
Have you done this before? I did a couple of weeks last spring and definitely saw the appeal.
How's it going?

I know it's not advisable to just drop the S.A.D. and jump into a juice fast, but I'll ask anyway.

If anyone is interested in fasting together, start whenever you want..... I am on board.

I am planning 60 days so if you feel the notion...... jump on in.

We can do this together.

Oh, I started today..... LOL

Hi Melt2beautiful,

I could use a fasting teammate - how are you doing so far?

Hi KatNip - sorry I didn't even see this post until today. How is your fast going?

I received my machine and decided to try juicing and eating for a bit to get into the swing of it. Today is my first day off the solids.

I want to do 60 days and I could really use a buddy on this journey! Anyone interested?

I started Juicing this past Tuesday but also ate some solid foods such as raw fruits and veggies and hard boiled eggs and cottage cheese. I'm slowly getting rid of the solids and trying for a 30 day juice fast. I have a weigh in at the doctors office on Aug. 6th and hope i have a significant weight loss by then. If anyone wants support or a fasting teammate, let me know! We can do this! The days and weeks are gonna go by if we are successful or not and I for one want to succeed! Good Luck Everyone! Stay positive! emoticon

Hi there :) I'm on day 1 here. My first goal is 60 days, and if possible I want to get to 90 :D 60 is minimum though, or should I say the main goal. :)

@bringyourownsun, when is your machine scheduled to arrive? And what machine did you get?

Hi Watchdaride1

I am starting the 60 day fast on Saturday! Would love some mutual support. Is this too late for you? Can't do any earlier as I'm waiting for my juicing machine to be delivered.

Let me know :)
