Still Juicing...

So when I started juicing last Wednesday, I truly only committed myself to 5 days. That's it. So with that goal in mind I started the process with determination to make it through Sunday. And I did! And I'm STILL JUICING.

Friday morning, my third day, I woke up feeling SO much better than the 2nd day. The horrible headache I had the afternoon and evening before was pretty much gone. I had a lot more energy. So the 3rd day was pretty easy for me. I was convinced the 5 day goal was not going to be problem. And for the most part, it hasn't been. What REALLY spurred me on was the improvement in my allergies and the physical changes I started seeing with my body.

One of the first things I noticed was that my neck looked thinner. Once I noticed that, I started seeing other changes. My stomach was flatter, my face a bit thinner, my rings were looser, as was my clothing. So I am happy to say that as of this morning, I am down almost 10 LBS! Yes, in 5 days of juicing, I have broken that weight barrier that has been frustrating me for the past two years. And now that the ball is rolling, I decided I can do AT LEAST two more days of juicing.

One thing I did battle with over the weekend was the desire to eat. I love food, I really do. I watch cooking shows, read cookbooks and I really enjoy cooking. And eating. Because... I love food. So this weekend was kind of empty for me. After working all week, I look forward to preparing and enjoying a few good meals that I don't have time for during the week. So I had to keep my mind off food the best I could but it was tough. And being around people who were eating was tough. But I pushed through and I am SO glad I did.

So with the exciting results I've already seen and with maybe a few more to come, I'm going to stick with juicing at least two more days. That way it's a full 7 days of detox and healing for my body and maybe a few more lbs shed. I'll keep you posted!
