Juice fast DAY 4

DIDN'T happen!

Atleast not for me!:)

Yep, I caved. I was SO MISERABLE and was just so sick of it. 

Dh is still going strong! (HE is so awesome and determined.)

Weight- 192

Milk supply- My baby is nursing and nursing so much through the night and I FEEL like their is less milk there. But I could be wrong. She is doing lots of gulping and her wet diapers are plenty so......

I ate normal food but did NOT pig out and didn't eat sugar/junk!

So the plan is for me to PARTIAL juice the rest of the week (MON-FRI) and then I will do 2 more days this weekend. That will be a total of 5 full juice days and 5 partial days. I am happy with that!

The partial fast

I will eat breakfast, lunch and my afternoon snack and that's it. The rest of the night I will have only juice with my dh.

Juice fast DAY THREE

Yuck yuck yuck.

Weight- 195 (no loss)

Milk supply- fine

I feel great. I felt a *tiny* bit weak and shaky when I woke up this morning, but not for long.

I even did some cardio and lifted weights today! I felt perfectly fine.

I felt SUPER motivated this morning. But then totally crashed this afternoon.

I DEFINITELY would have quit  if dh wanted to. So technically, you could say I quit. Because I wanted to, but he didn't, so I didn't. :)

I just want to EAT. I am so sick of not eating!  I am SUCH a bad fasting person!

Food and chewing sound so unbelievably good. Like, even plain and boring food. I take eating so forgranted!

Day three is *almost* over.

hmmmmm trying to think if there is anything else to report, but I can't think of anything.

Day TWO of our 10 DAY juice fast!


Milk supply- Great!


I am trying to not let my mind mope and whine. Just ignoring the food smells and trying not to dream about food all of the time. EVERYTHING looks delicious. Even just a plain piece of bread.

Well, ALMOST everything.

Juice most definitely does NOT sound delicious! :)

I chug it down, and it isn't that hard. (Although I do not enjoy it.)

We are doing about 80% non starchy veggies and 20% fruit/carrots.

My stomach feels SO empty.

But I still have plenty of energy! I have no detox symptoms whatsoever. NO dizziness, no headaches, no ACHES, nothing negative whatsoever.

Just plain old hungry!

I am so thankful for my one enjoyment. COFFEE.

I am also thrilled to have a nice drop in weight right away.

I feel SO FAT. It just feels absolutely horrible to feel chubby again because of gaining back that weight. Every time I put my hands on my hips, or see my self in the mirror, I CAN SEE IT/FEEL IT!

Why oh WHY do I undo my efforts like I do?

I will be ecstatic if I am just back down to 184 by the end of this fast.

And over the MOON if I see 183 or less! :)

10 Day Juice Fast


Because I want a nice cleans to start the new year. I have always wanted to do a 10 day juice fast, but because of nursing and pregnancies, never get to it. (I won't mention that I HAVE tried a few times, and quit.:) )

My baby is old enough now to do this! My husband and I and a few of our older children are doing it together!So I hope it will be FUN!


Weight- 199

(I am SO depressed to have GAINED weight over the holidays. I am up 15 LBS from my lowest weight since having Gracie. I can't even describe how that disgusts/depresses me,but I am trying to forget about that and just go forward. I am pretty sure that some is water weight from overdoing it on carbs, but STILL!)

I am doing fine. I have gotten hungry several times and had a slight depression that it would be SO long before I ate again! :) But I am NOT going to quit this, so I just try to put it out of my head.

My energy is perfectly fine/normal.

I am drinking about 50-70 oz juice, plus gobs of water.

I should also say that we agreed ahead of time that we are still having our coffee. 1-3 cups a day. We are all having coffee our REGULAR way. My husband is NOT willing to give that up and I am just thankful we are juicing at ALL, even though the coffee is a "cheat" because of the sugar/redi-whip/cream.

I don't have sugar in mine, but I do have a small amount of Red-Whip and coconut oil.
My dh has sugar in his. Oh well! :)

Here we go! :)
