introduction about my juice fast

My name is Rachel and this is the log of my first juice fast. I am on a path to better nutritional health. I am a committed vegan, having been vegan since Sept of 05, and largely vegetarian for the last 10 years. I've been raw for about a month before begining this fast.
I'm 28, a married mom of three. I work at Starbucks (but wouldn't dream of drinking or eating anything from there!).
I've had a long struggle with my weight. After having my first two children and gaining a lot of weight, I was able to lose a lot of weight and get down to what might have been my ideal weight (117 lbs, at 5'4", medium to small frame) in the Spring of 2000. Six years ago! I went back to college, things got hectic, and I basically abused my body. I went crazy with caffeine and terrible foods. I gained 35 in six months or so. By spring of 2001, I was over 150, and feeling terrible.
I tried the same route of a healthy vegetarian diet and running, but the weight wouldn't budge. I'd lose and gain the same ten pounds over and over. I felt really bad. I started doing bad things, including completely abstaining from all food for weeks at a time, abusing diet pills, and generally bad things. I got diagnosed with Hypothyroidism at this time. It explained my inability to lose weight.
I started convential hormone treatment, started to lose weight, then was in a bad car accident and ended up with bad PTSD and used food to treat it! I gained more weight, about another ten pounds, taking me to 160.
I finally got treatment for my mental issues but the drugs I took caused me to gain more weight. I dieted when I could, getting as low as 155, but then would continue to gain.
By September of this year, when I went vegan, I was 175! I was a rock bottom. I didn't go vegan to lose weight, but the weight started slowly coming off. By March 1 I was about 158 pounds, so I lost 17 lbs in five months on a vegan diet without really trying to even lose weight.
But I still suffered from fatigue, bad skin (acne), and a general malaise.
I went raw on March 3. I went raw briefly a few years ago and lost some weight (which I quickly regained due to readopting my old eating habits) so decided to give it another shot. Being vegan already, it wasn't a hard transition. And I lost 9 lbs, getting to 149, in 3 weeks. That's the lowest I've been in years. I started feeling better and looking better, and reading about juice fasting, and felt really drawn to it.
I think it could heal my thyroid and help my permanently help my health. I also think it could help me lose weight. I am my sister's matron of honor at her wedding in two months, and I would like to be as close to my ideal weight as possible before the wedding.
I'm also fasting from the scale, so I am not weighing myself til I break the fast. I started the fast Monday, March 27th. I hope to go til at least April 25, which would be day 30. I think I can do it. If I can go longer, it would be great.
So that's all about me!
