Look at me, drinking on the job...Let's not bring up the fact that I'm having a crap hair day okay (the lighting in here really sucks by the way, only fluorescents)? It's super windy/rainy/snowy here, so hairdo's go right out the window.
I wanted to tell you guys that I finally made a juice that I really enjoy! Well, I enjoy all the fruit juices but not really the veggie ones. I made a Green Lemonade! It's got Spinach, Cucumber, an apple, and two lemons. It's super zippy, but really delicious! I figured out that I REALLY don't like celery, onion, and pepper juiced. It grosses me OUT!
One more juice day to go and I'm back to solids..THANK GOD! It would take a lot of willpower to last more than 5 days juicing honestly. The weight loss is incredible though!
Stats: 2/29/12, Day 9
Weight Loss: 9 LBs
Jeans: Into a pair of jeans that gave me BAD muffin top before, without ANY squeezed adipose tissue anywhere!!
Mood: Great! I feel super good today! I woke up with so much energy. Marc even commented how awake I was this morning. I can tell he is very proud of me. I am proud of myself!
Other: So I have a couple of people who are worried about my abrupt weight loss. A lot of people are saying I'm going to balloon up. I have a BOATLOAD of problems with this thinking. I have continually lost weight since 2007-2008. I have done both slow and fast methods. In all of my experience, my only weight gains have been minimal (5-7 pounds maximum). I don't eat at all like I did when I looked like this...
(This was even after losing about 30 LBs) That picture makes me so sad. Who is that sad girl (with the TRAGIC haircut)?
Anyway, like I said, some people were talking to me recently about how I'm going to balloon up. Even some stated they were worried I was anorexic. Where does that even come from? Right now, even on a fast I'm getting ALL of my vitamins and minerals, most of the proteins needed, and all the carbohydrates needed. An average juice is anywhere from 250-450 calories. What's the issue? I don't stuff myself with food that I used to eat, I still love a cheeseburger but I don't eat one daily. It's a matter of balance.Telling me that I don't know what I am doing, when OBVIOUSLY I have lost this weight on my own, is just a wasted breath. Don't rain on my parade. It kind of makes me think, are you sad about your own life? I think these people might very well be. All this bullying (really that's how it felt) made me write a FB message that I wanted to share with you...
That is so true to me, and I'm glad I stuck up for myself.
On that note, here's my food list:
Papaya Pineapple Juice
Mean Green Juice
Green Lemonade! x 2
Cantaloupe something Juice...
That last one I need to juice when I get home and will have a serving tonight and a serving tomorrow morning. One problem...What should I put with cantaloupe? Apple? Lemon? Just by itself? Hrmm I don't know yet.
Looking forward to chewing!! Love you guys!
