okay... i'm on day 12 of my juice feast and i need some support. just a few choice words to remind me that i can do this.
it's a hard day. no energy... really feeling hungry (which i know is purely mental) and i know i can get what i need from you all.
so... may i please read your words of support...

Glad you pulled through Aleesha, you rock!

I'm just now seeing this...sorry I wasn't here last night when you needed support :(
I'm glad you got through okay. I've been reading your blog and you are so inspiring! You are going to come out of this feast looking and feeling tremendous! Just think of how you will feel on your birthday after completing all 92 days!

Hi Aleesha! I'm happy to hear you're still going strong despite temporary obstacles! I am now on day 3 of my juice fast. I have decided not to set a length of time, but to just allow it to unfold. When I feel done I'll stop.
You are my beacon of light! I read your blog each day and you inspire me!

thank you firicia, wendy and shash... it was a tough day. made moreso because my hubby is on his 14 day green smoothie feast and was really wanting food... so instead of me feeling the thoughts which were bouncing around in my brain and releasing them... they bounced over, hit his and bounced back :P terrible cycle. i saw it and decided i had to make it stop.
i grabbed a mango... one of my all time fav foods and juiced it with a pear...then i ate my juice with a spoon LOL made my mind stop the bouncing. i'll be keeping an emergency mango around for now on. it really stopped that chatter in my head.
i feel better this morning. i think the detox i was experiencing has passed but i'll know better as my day goes on.
shash, i've done the "day by day" feasting as well. for me (i'm just speaking for myself) that wasn't as motivating as this one is. knowing i'm going for 92 days keeps me from looking at each day in the same way. this is now a journey... an extended one... instead of one that can end anytime i have a day like yesterday.
i sat on the toilet yesterday and knew in my heart that if i didn't set this 92 day goal for myself... i'd be coming off the fast. i would be done. it was ONLY the knowledge that i knew (coming from a clear head when i made my goal) that i wanted to do more that kept me from stopping. just a thought for you - if you feast ends up not as long as perhaps you may hope in the end. setting a goal next time may assist you (or not LOL)

That is so true! I do the day by day fasting sometimes and I go a few days or so, once I went 20 days! But I like to set fasting goals because you seem to settle into an attitude where you just do it and accept that this is just how it is right now. You have less a sense of freedom to make excuses & opt out.
I am on day 7 fasting again right now, for 100 days this time. My longest was before Easter this year I did 34 days, then ate for 11 days, then fasted another 20, then ate, then off & on fasted a few days here & there. My problem has not ever been hunger, I have yet to know that sensation (it's a goal I have though! :D ) my problem is boredom and wanting to create recipes because it's so my 'thing'! I start making them and of course I have to have a lick to make sure it tastes good, then a lick here & there turn into more and then it's all over with! :rolleyes:

Day 12!!! WOW!!! WAY TO GO!!! KEEP IT UP!!! YOU CAN DO IT!!!
Just think of all the goodness and transformations going on in your body! Wonderful!!!
I am on day 2 of my first juice feast and am taking it day by day, but aiming for 20-30 days...I think I might do better if I tell myself...okay, for 5 days, then 7...after one week...go for the next week etc!!!
I'm a bit tired today, but I think that is more because my 2 year old woke several times last night...so sleep disrupted!..........I'm glad to see others who are juice feasting at this time...maybe we should have a special thread for "current Juice feasters" or something of the sort! Deb:D
05-23-2008, 06:17 PM
what a great idea deb. i'm going to go start one!!!
oh and today is day 13 for me LOL - i feel much better today... so i'm very very pleased.
*off to start the thread*

Can you hear me? Can you read this? GO GIRL GO! YES YOU CAN MAKE IT THROUGH TO AS MANY DAYS AS YOU WISH!
Sorry I didn't see this post earlier, but I'm on time as you are still here.
I'm proud of you hanging in.
Take a deep breath. Maybe some yoga??????????
Give yourself a big hug and send a hug to each person here joining you!!

ahhhhh thank you both *big squeeze*...
between my hubby having no coffee and juice feasting... and me fasting... i'm not finding a whole lot of support at home at the moment... you guys are my inspiration and motivation (other than my own internal motivation of course) so...
THANK YOU ALL!!!

There are always some weaker points. I've feel at some times I want to stop the fasting and go back eating, but only at peak hours... Most of the times, at the very first moments in the morning (like know... I'll get my tea and then the lemonade and it will go) and probably in the evening... but it's always for a shor them and then it's gone...
You can do it aleesha!!! Use that not support from home like, "Gosh, I'm the only one who can do this! I'm making a diference!" That's a human need called significance, very good feeling except if someone is abusing on that (if you do, you would become a jerk)

the hardest time for me is about 4pm on. i'm usually done my juices by then and a mixture of food prep and my own 'desires' (not needs) are what makes it hard.
but honestly, my fuse is short right now, my hubby's fuse is short... and so it doesn't take much for someone to become unglued. but... this too will pass. we had a good talk about it last night... knowing that we have to both work on extending our fuse LOL
tolerance - after all - is important all the time, but right now, it's at the forefront for us.
any of you ever fasted with a partner? i'm sure chicago is feeling this somewhat since both him and his wife are doing the MC.
