When I look at these two images and realize that I began the journey to change the way I eat almost 5 months Ago - it really hits me that there has been substantial change going on here! Look at those Chipmunk Cheeks in 2011! The photo thisyear/2012 I look like my younger self! (younger is a relative word - but which is appropriate as I feel younger!).
June 25- Next Monday, we are going to do another 5 Day JUICE ONLY Reboot. It will be interesting to see how I (we) do. I'm checking out my friends over at www.JoinTheReboot.com web site as well as the Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead face book page. When I began this in February, it was really helpful to be able to log on to those forums and read other peoples experience as they work their way through a multi day JUICE ONLY reboot. It's a supportive and encouraging way to NOT EAT for a week. Some people don't need the support, but I personally enjoy it.
This past Wednesday I did break a little - but I'm not worried about it, we had a sales meeting and Danielle French from Blue Water Mortgage came in to talk with our Associates about 203K mortgage programs for buyers (in case you didn't know, I am an Associate Broker with Weichert Realtors Points East Yankee Trader serving the Seacoast areas of Maine & NH), ANYWAY, Danielle brought in refreshments including cheese, crackers and Wine! I ALMOST had a glass of wine but then "chose" not to, but I did have some cheese and grapes....... I'm pretty comfortable at this stage not drinking (don't even desire it) and as far as the cheese - I just consider it a little treat, I try to remind myself that it's a lifestyle change, not a prison sentence.
It's Been Almost 5 Months - Down 30 Pounds (5 more to go) - No Meat, No Poultry, No Dairy, No Processed Food And Still NOT SMOKING
For those who haven't seen Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead yet, you can watch it on your computer by going over to http://www.JoinTheReboot.com - FOR FREE - or you can see it on Netflix - We watched that and Forks Over Knives again last weekend when we went for a visit up to a friends Camp.
Speaking of friends, we had a great time at camp and I actually took my Juicer with me. Ted and Tammy enjoyed the juices I made each morning and were excited to continue with it after I left. I gave them my juicer (the Waring Pro) so next time we go visit I know we'll have juice!
There is nothing quite like going to someplace else to relax and unwind - This place was amazing as are the friends who own it. Juice On!
