Ughh 8 y
screwed up ARGH!
Ughh so I ate again today! What?!?!?! not the plan! Iím feeling HUGE and worse than ever. Iím going to start with a 5-day water fast to quickly make up for the past few days which have me feeling awful. Hopefully this will get me back into a state of feeling okay about myself and then I can switch back to juice...
Iíll keep you posted! visit the page
Fast again 8 y
juice fasting again
Haha, sooo turns out I donít feel so great after breaking my fast. Iíve eaten very little and itís been raw carrots and tomatoes and things like that but I feel FATTTT so i think the feeling of hunger and emptiness let me feel thin but I loved that, so Iíve decided to fast again this week starting tomorrow. Again, Iím posting on here to hold me accountable. It was so easy just a few days ago to not eat and I felt GREAT up until I ate yesterday, so Iím going to go back on :) Iíll keep you posted visit the page
eating 8 y
eating for weight loss
So, since I really wasnít using the proper juice, I decided that since Iíve gotten a great jump start on my weight loss, it might actually be better for me to stop the juice and switch to just very low calorie foods, and eating very little so today I officially broke my fast after losing about 20 pounds (167-147) and lots of inches (waist: now 28). I broke the fast with tomatoes and avocados. I plan to continue losing weight so Iíll let you know how itís going :) visit the page
Day 20-frustration 8 y
frustrated with a stall in weight loss on day 20
Okay so today is day 20 of my juice fast and this morning Iím feeling rather weak and sleepy. I would almost be tempted to make it a 21 day juice fast so I have plenty of time to break the fast properly before going home but I donít think I will because of whatís going on with the scales. For three days in a row Iíve seen 149.5 on the scales in the morning. Donít get me wrong, Iím psyched to see a 4 in that place (just barely HAH) but I am not losing...and itís a stinker. Something tells me being in the middle of a bugger plateu is not the time or place to break the fast- I know that when ... read more
Day 17 8 y
Mmk so Iím currently on day 17 of my juice fast, still feeling great and strong and still losing weight :) I feel a bit tired but nothing extreme- Iím just more comfortable hanging out doing leisurely things. Iím still nervous about the end of the fast and would still love to get some feedback on when to break it so that i have plenty of time to break it right, so if you have any input, please give it to me! Have any of you done a fast before? if so, how long did you take to break the fast back to regular food (and no, I donít mean a crappy diet ícause Iím not planning on doing that, just ... read more
i did it! 8 y
weigh in 1
Haha, no I did not magically finish my fast yet BUT I got up the courage to step on the scales! You may all think Iím crazy for freaking out about this BUT I have had several bad experiences where Iíve thought Iíve lost weight before or been really disciplined with my calories in/calories out and such and stepped on the scales just to see the number hasnít budged OR Iíve gained. Well, the last time I was weighed was at a doctor in June and I hit 167-the highest EVER. I can only imagine that I had even gained some since then up until the fast since thatís what I tend to do unless I weigh my ... read more
when to end? 8 y
Okay, so I definitely want to do a 40 day fast like I planned, especially since itís day 12 and I feel GREAT! I know that I could go for 40 days at least but Iím starting to get concerned about Thanksgiving...I will have to go home and will not be able to fast- my family would freak out. That being said, Iím wondering if I should break the fast sooner so I can do it right, gradually building up with smoothies and raw food before I have to eat some of the traditional Thanksgiving fare. Or, is it better to just try to break it as best I can while home? Iím honestly just looking for your opin ... read more
Day eleven? 8 y
errghh, frustration with sizing, inches, etc.
So Iíve been really bad about posting and when I do, I feel like it is rather useless. The one thing I can say is that if you are looking on here to determine if you want to/ ĒcanĒ do a juice fast- you totally can. I donít ever think about eating anymore, I feel great, I just wish the weight would be coming off faster... :( errrghh
I mentioned in an earlier post that Iím not going to weigh myself until my waist is 28 inches, which I still plan on. At a 28 inch waist before I was really happy and fit comfortably into size 6 jeans. BUT Iíve been bumping around online and have found that a 2 ... read more
Day Six and Seven 8 y
day 6 and 7
One week! hooray! Iíve successfully juice-fasted for a week. I havenít posted for two days for the same reason I didnít post on day 4 or 5...I donít even feel like Iím fasting...Iím never hungry, never weak, sometimes tired but thatís me anyways hah. Again, itís a little disconcerting because I really feel like I should feel more...people keep saying when you feel ĒbadĒ thatís good because it means youíre detoxing, but I havenít really felt bad at all..hmmm.
Today was originally the day I was going to take measurements and weigh myself......but.......Iím still too scared hah...I know that ... read more
Day Four and Five 8 y
Days 4 and 5
So, I didnít write a post yesterday because I tend to write when I need a good distraction from being tempted to eat and in the past two days I havenít needed a distraction because I havenít wanted to eat. Itís very bizarre- Iíve been able to do everything as normal, including working out, and Iím barely drinking any juice either...somehow Iím running on empty and feeling fine, not hungry, not weak, no headaches, nothing. And to boot, in the last couple of days I havenít really had any cravings! Woohoo, hope this keeps up! Haha, I know it probably wonít, but it sure makes it easier! It wou ... read more
Day Three 8 y
Day Three of my juice fast
So itís day three of my juice fast. Iím feeling great today, no weakness and not as tired either- slightly hungry but just barely...I wish I were hungrier so I knew I was burning more calories and could tell my body is eating fat reserves (blech). I find I am craving food less and less and thatís what I really want to happen through this fast- I want to gain control over food and not let mere cravings make my body into something I despise: seriously! Thatís all that it is that stands between who I am and who I could be- stupid cravings for stupid snacks...Iím hoping that when I come out of ... read more
Day Two 8 y
Day two- feeling great! but I have some questions...
Alright, so what I really need right now is some assurance that I am doing the right thing. As far as weight loss, I know that if I lose weight, I have to come off of the fast VERY slowly and carefully so I donít put it back on, BUT is there some chance that I canít keep it off? No matter how little I eat after? And what about losing in the first place? I just read somewhere that a small percentage of people donít lose weight on a juice fast. Is this because they drink too much juice so the calories in/calories out doesnít work out? Or is there some weird thing going on... haha I know Iím ... read more
Measurements 8 y
Measurements from start of the fast
Okay so I bit the bullet and took measurements....resisting the urge to throw up or punch myself in the face (I have serious body issues Iím working on) I decided to come here and write them down instead, knowing that if I stick to the fast for 40 days I will hopefully see these numbers change, and my body will become what I want it to be. I have to say, it is actually quite freeing to finally know just how bad things are...it feels like Iím really taking a step in the right direction and I feel some control. I plan to take measurements every week and hopefully they will go down by the end ... read more
day one 8 y
Day one of my 40 day juice fast!
Okay so I didnít write anything yesterday but thatís because I had not started the fast and thus had nothing exciting to say. I think I am going to actually be able to start the fast earlier than I thought, as in TODAY! woohoo (weíll see if Iím still celebrating by tomorrow...) I will write again tonight talking about what I did consume throughout the day because so far itís been nothing... haha. I just wanted to say though that I am OFFICIALLY starting TODAY (this way I canít decide at dinner time that I actually want to start tomorrow and so on and so forth...
Happy drinking- hope every ... read more
Get Ready, Get Set... 8 y
About to start a juice fast!
Okey-dokey, so here I go... about to start a 40 day juice fast and my first ever blog :) I will be starting the fast on Thursday, October 13 and will be fasting, drinking only water, tea and juice until November 22- so, all you math whizzes, not quite 40 days but pretty close. I hope to find some supportive folks who will follow along with me throughout this entire fast- I plan to write every day to fill you in on my progress and how I am feeling. I am doing the fast for a few reasons:
1. weight loss (I am too scared to even step on the scales to give you a starting weight but its somewhe ... read more
