It's my second day of juice fasting and I feel pretty good. I had slipped up last week, but I have started fresh... I got this wonderful organic pineapple/coconut/white grape combo that tastes just like a pina colada. I have been drinking that, and some heated v8 for when I feel like I need 'real' food. It tastes almost like campbell's tomato soup, but without the fat and other junk. :) I am sorry to see that you're not going to be here as much, Sandy.. but this is a new period in your life, one in which you can put 'losing weight' behind you, and start enjoying all the benefits that control over food can bring. I wish you good fortune and happiness on your continuing journey. :) Anyone who wants to correspond with me can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, or can visit my online weight loss journal at http://www.blurty.com/users/fizgig58 . I am always glad to hear from other people who are going through the same struggle.
