Four weeks done…

Four weeks done… Only Juice, no solid food… And it worked…

I have been feeling better than I have in years and years… This actually works… And amazingly, yesterday (the first day that I indulged in solid food…) I was looking forward to eating vegetables, something that anyone who knows me would know is radically out of character… So I had a small arugula salad with mushrooms, and a lunch portion of grilled Ahi tuna on a bed of some kind of beans… and it tasted better than anything like that had in the past, and was very filling… My energy level seemed to be up in the afternoon, even better than when drinking what I have been for the last few weeks… Morning was still juice, and evening was the blueberry/green smoothie that I have been drinking… And when I weighed in at the gym, I was at 266, which is 27 pounds in 28 days… Right at my target, and as long as I eat sensibly for lunch or dinner, and keep on with the juice, the weight loss should stay consistent… we’ll see what happens over the next few weeks…

Change of lifestyle and eating habits… Who would have thought…? (the answer to that is no one who knew me over the last decade or so…) But I’m pretty happy with things so far…

Three Weeks down…

Five more days to go to finish off the first full month… Pretty much used to it now, and even over last weekend when I was at Lakehurst for 3 days, it really didn’t bother me too much… I actually missed my own concoctions last weekend, as we didn’t have power until Friday afternoon and I didn’t have time to freeze homemade juice for the weekend… So I just bought tomato juice and Naked Green Machine everyday during the weekend…

Down to 271 now, 24 pounds down in a little over three weeks… Basically a pound a day and it seems like it will keep on going… I think that I have decided that next week I will go to juice in the morning, and then either lunch or dinner will be a light salad and fish or chicken, and the other juice… at least for the week, and then check to see if the weight loss is still consistent… Should be, and I’ve heard that it might even go a bit faster, since I will be taking in approximately the same calories, and since my system will have to do some digestion, you might even burn more energy… If not, maybe back to juice for another month… Looks like there is a chance to get down 30 pounds in the month, which was my goal for the first month…
