Day 5 juice fast

Well, today was the easiest day I've had so far.

Hunger is becoming a non-issue, no headaches or fatigue at all, not even a little. My shoulders hurt less than they have recently, which is good. Was having a bit of a fibro flare for a week or so there. Joey is doing well too.

So as of this morning I weighed 221, down 7 lbs in 5 days. Joey is down 8 lbs. Go us! Now that I'm through the worst of it I might stop blogging daily about it and only blog if things of note happen while fasting. I am going to post some tips tomorrow though, so for anyone interested in juice fasting keep an eye out and be sure to click 'follow' over there on the right.

Although I am not pining for food, I do miss the actual act of cooking, although I don't miss the act of doing dishes. ;)


  1. It sounds like you are having great success with the juice fasting. I know it would be too hard for me. I tried Optifast about 7 or 8 years ago and lasted three days.

    One thing I would not

    Best wishes for more success.

  2. For some reason, I haven't been able to comment for the last several posts. I don't know why, it just won't let me post. Let's see if this works - and congrats on your success with the juice fast.

  3. I'm on day 7 and down 10.6lbs. How long are you fasting for?

  4. anewertammy: thanks!

    jackie: It worked! Sorry it's been messing up. :( and thanks.

    sue: congrats! I'm on day 6 and down 7. I'm not sure how long I'm fasting, maybe 15-20 days? Maybe more? I'd kind of like to go until I get below 200 and am currently at 221.

How Intuitive eating (did not) work for me

So I have spent roughly the last year and a half or more trying to lose weight by eating intuitively. I'm not really great at it. I have lost 30 lbs in a year and a half, it's moving at such a snails pace that I have finally decided that the only thing that works for me is tracking, and even though in my head I know I won't possibly do it forever, I have to go back to it.

So, Joey and I are tracking again, so far so good. It's only been a few days, but it at least hasn't been a struggle. I figure we will stay where we are calorie wise and after about a month and hopefully some loss (not being too focused on the scale though, it's been my downfall in the past) we can reduce our calories a little bit at a time.

I know this is the right thing to do, but I feel kind of down that I did so poorly with intuitive eating. Then again I probably wouldn't be fat if I were good at that sort of thing. :P Here's to being "On Plan." :D

Also, my job has finall…

I Was a Fat Bride

Our wedding pictures are the first thing you see when you walk into our home. 

Joey and I have been together for over 22 years. We've both gained and lost a lot of weight over the course of our relationship. Then we regained, and re-lost, you know how it goes. We got married on our 19 year anniversary, which is in March.  We had decided to get married just four months prior. So after what our friends teased was a 'brief 19 year courtship", we decided to just go ahead and do it. I know there are a million blogs and articles about losing weight for your wedding. This is not one of them. I had four months to lose weight. I don't really even remember what was going on, but I had NO desire to diet or attempt to lose weight and so I just...didn't. Joey lost a bit of weight so he could wear that fancy vest. I appreciate the effort, he looked handsome in it. :)

We thought we would never get married. We didn't see the point, we kind of still don't, and luckily, be…

Fluvia Lacerda....or, life's short, have fun.

So I just read this post about 'letting it all hang out' in the summer, by Fluvia Lacerda, a Brazilian plus size model. She. Is. Gorgeous.

First, let me say, my 'thinspiration' pics are always plus size models. I have no desire to be skinny. I want to ROCK my curves.

Anyhow, this is what the lovely Fluvia Lacerda looks like:

So she writes this blog post about how you should accept your fat body and don't care about the judgements from other people, etc, etc. I'm thinking to myself, she looks amazing, who is judging her? Then I google her and find a 'celebrity weight gain' site that is talking all kinds of smack on her 'chunky arms' and her 'expanding waistline'. I want to cry. Seriously. If you can look like THAT and still get insulted by these people (who are the equivilant to me, of frat boys yelling "fat bitch" at me from their porch) then I just hate this world. 
I ASPIRE to be as 'fat' and 'chunky' as Fluvia!…
