I am so happy to report that after 30 days (even though today is day 38 lol). That I lost 28 lbs juicing! I am so so happy, but oh so very hard. Omgosh. I got to the point of feeling depressed, and I didn’t like that feeling. I read that would pass, but it didn’t so when my next 30 days started, we agreed with my fiance that I would do one meal in the evening with him. So with Valentine’s Day approaching, I wanted to spend that time not worrying too much about what I ate. So we had a nice weekend, we had Subway, and then on Valentine’s Day, he made an amazing dinner. So, because of that, this week, I am only juicing, to make up for the weekend, and the 2 lbs I gained BUT hey I am just glad I am able to juice and get back on track. But I did lose those 28 lbs so that is something.
I have taken pictures of what I have been juicing, you can see those on my Instagram. I’ll leave a post here so anyone interested, can pop on over and check them out!
I hope that link worked, will have to see it after I post. In my last post, I had forgotten I wrote that post lol. And then noticed it and thought I better post this today, but postdate back to January, wow I cannot believe how time just flies by. Anyway, I did post some pictures from my juice making in the other post, but in this one, I have the link (that I hope works) to my Instagram. If anyone is so inclined to follow along my journey.
I have come to realize that I will end up having loose skin, which kind of bums me out, but hey I am 51, and well time has taken its toll. If I had started early in life doing what I am doing now, then it would have been a different story. I have been watching Skin Tight.
A TLC TV show about people from all walks of life, that had gone either through weight loss surgery or like me, did it through diet and exercise. And the aftermath, so many people are so unhappy, they feel as if they are trapped in the same body they were in before, because of the loose skin. I fear that is what will happen to me. In the TV show, they undergo plastic surgery, which I am sure is so very expensive, but that is the only way to get rid of the excess skin that hangs loose. How in the world am I going to pay for something like that? I will feel trapped if I don’t do the surgery. I so wish I had known what I know today. I hope one day someone stumbles on my post and gets inspired to start before it is too late.
I am such a private person, I cannot post pictures of myself, it is too embarrassing, and I just can’t. Call me a coward, oh well. lol. Anyway with that said, I think I will end it here. I have some catching up to do with that show. I think, once I reach a weight I am happy with, I am going to apply to be on that show. I think it is something I need and will help me. Because the loose skin will get me depressed, I see it already, and I hid it already.
