weight loss by juicingAnother gorgeous day.  The sun is shining and it promises to be about 22C this afternoon.  I finally hit 20 lbs. of weight loss, although I seem to have plateaued somewhat.  I hear gurglings in my bowels for the last day so I suspect a movement is imminent. Having my first juice of the day as I type this.  

I read something last night about drinking some hot water with a piece of lemon, first thing in the morning.  I think I’ll need to see what that is all about and what its possible benefits are.

Today I will ensure to drink lots of water.  I try to remind myself, but it’s so easy to forget – I’ve set hourly reminders on my phone – I hope this helps. Tonight I will prepare a lemon so that tomorrow all I need to do is add warm water and drink up before I take my morning walk with the dog. can’t hurt 🙂

Later the same day…

Hi everyone. I’ve been on this juicing for 10 days now and I will admit, at times it’s tough. I was hoping the hunger would be gone by now, but today was especially difficult. I read that the most common reason for hunger is not enough juices and / or not enough water. It’s 7 pm here and I’ve already had 6 juices and at least 2 liters of water. That, along with almost a liter of coconut water.

What I do know is this. I’m sick and tired of feeling this way, so I feel very determined. When this feels almost unbearable, I go for a walk, take some deep breathes, smoke a joint…do what I need to do to make it to the next day.

I just made a huge batch so lots of supplies in the fridge for tomorrow.

  1. This too shall pass. A moment at a time. Have you thought of some gentle Yoga stretches. Also good for the bowels. Mindful walking. (Sometimes hard to do with s little dog). I could go on…..

    1. If you feel good and feel healthy, keep it up. Soon enough you’ll be at day 59 looking forward to day 60… and then what? Probably day 61 ! 😉
