Juice Fast Round 2
Well, the New Year has started and I am STILL fat... lol!! So much for reaching my goal & being skinny by the end of 2011...
That didn't happen, and I am ok with it. You know why? (Well, besides that fact that I love my life & and super thankful to God for all His blessings)
The reason I am OK with the fact that I haven't actually reached my 155 pound goal yet is because I know that I can. Yep. Before, I never actually believed that I could reach my goal and be skinny. But ever since learning about Juice Fasting from Valik & Jenni I now actually KNOW and BELIEVE that I can and WILL reach my goal!! And that makes me happy!!
My 1st Juice Fast consisted of 30 days juice fasting & 10 days water fasting for a total of 40 days of cleansing.
Overall I lost 24 pounds, which I was super duper thrilled about!! Since getting off the fasting... I sort of let myself go back to my old habits. I was "testing the waters", but ended up drowning... lol... I totally fell off the wagon and just started eating/drinking all the same old unhealthy stuff that I was trying to get away from.
It has now been 9 weeks since I ended my fast and I have gained back 13.4 pounds. (Gasp).... that's actually a shocker to me... lol.. this whole time, I kept thinking that I only gained 10 pounds back.
Well, obviously that is not the case... let me just confirm that it is MY fault that I gained the weight back. I just totally let go of any "control" over what I was eating or drinking.
I am happy to report though that I have decided to start another Juice Fast!! Honestly, I am so excited about it!!
At the moment, I do not know how long I will do this fast for. My 1st goal is to lose the 13.4 pounds and be back down to 168. I really enjoyed being at that weight. Stuff actually fit me!! AND I was getting compliments!
I started the juice fast yesterday, which was Monday, January 9, 2012 weighing in at 181.4 pounds.
The 1st day was great. I drank my juice and felt just fine... until I got home... and there was food... THEN I became really hungry.. but I just drank my juice.. Jenni and I sat in a Hot Sauna for about an hour... that felt really nice : ) I was hoping it would help me sweat out some fat... lol
Woke up with a HORRIBLE headache. Took 3 Fever-few & 1 Tylenol...the pain subsided... really enjoyed my Green Lemon Ginger Juice... eventually I gave in and had a cup of green tea rather than another pill... and that really made my head stop hurting.
I came home and had Green Lemonade (minus the Romaine Lettuce)... and just chilled.
I don't know if its too early too tell, but I think round 2 of the Juice Fast might be easier to handle than the 1st one!
Yay for Juicing!!
P.S. Day 1 I weighed in at 181.4. Morning of Day 2 I weighed in at 179.4 WooHoo!!
