I did it!! 21 day juice fast!!!
:) I'm so proud of me!!! And so tired of cleaning that juicer!
For 21 days I juiced everything I consumed. Well, with the exception of about 5 grapes, 3 dried apple slices, and 4 dried peach slices. And I blended my watermelon juice, once with part of a banana ( I was really craving a banana.)
So how am I? Good! I feel clearer, cleaner, and calmer. I lost 8 pounds, which wasn't really necessary, as I was happy with my weight. Now I am at high school weight. I like it, but I also realize that once I start eating real food again, it may very well come back.
All in all the fast was rather easy, though there were days (not too many) when I prepared for the rest of the family, that I really wanted to dig in! And there were days that I just simply did not want to prepare for the rest of the family.
I think my body did a real heal. There were times I thought I had a cold, achey and tired. There were days all I could do was drag myself to get things done. I slept lots. I took hot sweating baths to help cleanse. I tried my best to take care of me and get the rest I needed.
I feel accomplished. My spirit is at peace and anxious to do what is next expected of me. I'm in love with life again, ready to move mountains. . .
But first I must go find something to chew. That is what I missed -- chewing. And now it is amazing how long I take to chew one grape.
Tha hardest part was reading all the really good receipes and seeing the pictures on here about all the good food you people have been creating. Now I am anxious to try them.
Actually I do not believe I have realized the full benfit of the fast. I think it will reveal itself to me in time.
I am so proud for you!! That is so amazingly wonderful! It is awesome to set your mind to something, and then DO IT!!
Your body, soul and spirit are in a much better place because you chose to do it!
Thats wonderful! I'm so jealous......I want to do a 4 day juice fast but seem to eat stuff by the end of the day.....
So what were your favorite juices?
Way to go - that couldn't have been easy, that's for sure. I'm so glad you're feeling so wonderful, maybe I should consider one myself....only a shorter one to start...
You go girl...lolol I am so proud of you!
Never give up on your dreams even if it take a life time
WONDERFUL BDraw!!! Wow, that's so good!
What an amazing accomplishment! Way to go. I loved reading your description and am very proud of you. There are tons of mountains for you to move in this state...lol
Thanks all of you!!! It is so nice to get pats on the back! I'm sitting here with this great big smile on my face. Had to laugh at Carmel's mountain moving comment.
Today has been grand. I feel so loved. Thanks for all of your love and hugs that manage to squeeze through this monitor.
Congratulations - it is a wonderful thing. I had to learn to "chew" my juice and drink my salad - it really does help. I admire you because my last fast, I did not prepare anything for the family.
So true, as well the benefits will reveal themselves by and by.
That is so awesome!
Today is my first day, again , I have tried in the past but failed
You are my inspiration , everytime I get week I will think of you and how you did it.
I'm scared that I will lose less weight than 8lbs cause today I am 119.5 I could see myself getting as low as 105 at the end of just drinking fruits and vveggies. HOw in the world did you stick with it? Especially when you had food in front of you that you prepared for your family. In situations like that that's when I fail so I really want to know how you remained strong and got through it. :)
