Failures, Realizations, & Try Again!

I am back again, and giving this another whirl. So let me give you a little update since my last post. I realize it has been quite a few months.

update

After my last post, I went into my 2nd 30 day set of juicing. From my last post you can tell it had been rough, even my fiance noticed I was depressed. So he suggested I have 1 meal a day, I agreed. So, my 2nd 30 day began, I looked forward to the meal. At this point, i was doing fine, until the 2nd week came around. I then, couldn’t help, but snack on something here and there. By the end of the 2nd set of 30 days, I was at more than just one meal/ I didn’t lose as much.

What I did realized though, is that I didn’t lose more than I thought I would in the first month, much less the 2nd month. Basically what I am saying, I went through all that suffering, to have results that didn’t make much of a difference from my normal dieting. I was very disappointed to say the least.

Psychologically, the juicing screwed with my mind, in the sense of being deprived of solid foods. I know I did it willingly, but I wasn’t expecting the psychological trauma. I say trauma, because when those 60 days were done. I couldn’t, just go back to my regular dieting (lifestyle change). Because, it is like someone not having water for days, all they want to do is drink, til they can’t anymore. That is what happened to me.

I ate, just about everything, I had not ate while on my regular diet, I can’t even explain the feeling. I went on like that for about 3-4 months, during that time gaining weight. All the hard work in the previous year, I was knowingly sabotaging, in my mind, I couldn’t control myself. It made me sad, and happy at the same time. I know it is up to me, but until you have been there you don’t know.

I think this is well and good for some people, but not for others, it did not work for me, I think the cleansing was a good thing. And even though I lost a lot of weight the first week, there after it was as low as 2 lbs a week, which was not much in my eyes.

I think I will stick to my regular diet, and walking.

Speaking of walking, I have noticed as of late, I have not been walking as much. Now I can use the excuse that my cay gets behind me near the treadmill, and I have to stop, but I can easily take her to the room for 30-60 minutes without a problem. I need to stick to every aspect of my diet, or I will never reach my goal.

As it is a gained back about half of what I lost. Back to work, never give up! I am not sure if I will post my regular updates like before, if anything, perhaps once a month. So far, I have been back on my diet for 3 weeks, have lost 10.8 lbs, which is awesome, this is pretty much how it goes, I average 2 lbs a week, i weigh in now on Saturdays, but am thinking to changing to Saturdays like I was doing before.

Tonight I had a chat with my boyfriend, and we agreed that I should change it back to Saturdays. SI am going to do that, It just feels weird, nit doing it at the end of the week lol. Ok I have gone on enough, I am closing here.

Final thoughts: If you decide to go on a diet, be sure it is one that you can deal with, physically, physiologically and emotionally!

Until next time.

Holidays & Weight Management Update

So yeah I have seriously gone MIA, but have returned, have some good and bad news for you.

Bad news: I gained weight lol, I blame myself and the holidays hehe.

Good News: I have discovered serious juicing!

I was doing fine with my eating up until after my birthday, then I slowly progressed to not eating as good end of December I had already discovered juicing with Joe Cross after watching his 2 documentaries. Then found him on Facebook. He offered 5 day pan for free, we jumped on it, as my fiance since he stopped smoking, has gained weight, and he was never unhealthy, but it does cause me concern, so he will be trying the juicing, not as intense as I will.

So after joining his support group, and the challenge which will run for 5 days, I choose to go for 60, which is what he dod, and made it. If he can, I can and I will! I am determined.

Ok so I signed up, we would get periodic emails, I wasn’t getting any, at least I didn’t see them, there was 1, that got lost in old emails *sigh*, it was crucial, as it arrived on Jan 1st, and would show us how to prepare for juicing. Well, I found it 3 days ago, meanwhile since I knew I would be juicing, I ate anything and everything I had not been eating for the last year and a half lol, don’t get me wrong, I didn’t over eat, except for cookies and cupcakes LOL. I enjoyed what I knew was bad, especially after watching his documentaries, and one or two others. So disgusting what they don’t tell you about the stuff we put in our bodies, this definitely opened up my eyes.

Well I continued weighing in, as I always have and will do. I obviously gained weight. I an hoping to drop 50-60 lbs during my juicing, more if possible.

I will be logging my weigh-ins, and possible short posts about how I am feeling, for my own record On Monday I will weigh-in again, even though I will on Saturday, but it is for record keeping and keeping a more accurate record of my weigh-in on Day 1 of my 60 day juicing period.

Here are some links to the documentaries, which are found on Netflix, or you could buy the DVD, we got a free DVD with the juicer we bought. Will show that too later.
