Day 3 - 6 pounds down!

Finally!  My weight is going in the right direction after all these months.  6 pound down in 2 days sounds great.

My tongue is coated white.  I hate this part of the fast, but know it's necessary.  I rinse with Listerine a few times a day to prevent canker sores, which I TRULY hate.  I fight cravings, especially at night.  Last night I wanted a buttery grilled cheese sandwich.  LOL  But I got a glass of water and went to bed.  I slept better last night than I have in a long time.

I also get headaches off and on.  They say the first 3-5 days are the hardest, and they are right!

My husband hasn't been sticking to the fast.  He went out with his co-workers last night and drank and had tons smoked pork.  He's paying for it today. LOL.   He also thought it was nice to buy me 2....not 1 but 2 Kit-Kat bars.  They are my favorite.  But I told him, "Aw, that's sweet but no thanks."  I really wanted to say, "You know I'm on this juice fast, you are so inconsiderate!!!"  LOL   I was nice. 

Which brings me to another thing.... Yesterday and today I've noticed that I have an attitude problem.  LOL  I'm easily irritated.  I guess because my mind really wants some fried chicken, lol.

He also informed me that we are invited to a party Saturday.  Great!  I'll be ok, I'm not going to let anything get me off this time.

Have a great day!!!!  Smooches!

It's been a long time... but I'm back at it! (Day 2)

Wow it's been a long time since I've written anything.

You won't BELIEVE what my family and I have gone through.  It's by the grace of God that we made it out of what we went through.

Within 3 weeks time, we lost our electricity, our gas service, and our car was stolen.  We got hit HARD.  We spent 2 months in the dark.  And that wasn't even the worse part.  I'm just grateful to be out of that situation.

Because of bad food choices, food addiction, and stress, I gained A LOT of weight in a little amount of time. so much so that I don't even want to give you the number.  (Yikes)

Now we have great jobs, living in a really nice condo and we bought a new juicer.  We went with the Jack LeLanne's Power Juicer Pro.  It works great.  Not only are we getting more juice, but we don't have to cut up all of our produce like we did with our other juicer.

So it's DAY 2, and I've lost exactly 3.0 pounds so far.  Yesterday I juiced for the majority of the day, but I also indulged in kale chips.  I made some for my daughter and I couldn't stop crunches those little fellas.  I love kale chips with lemon pepper seasoning.

So it's good to be back.  My brother's wedding is Sept. 29th so I have to stick with this.  2 days down, 58 to go!
