Ok, I fell off the wagon... so to speak. My juice fast/raw eating venture fell to the wayside a few days ago. Well, I suppose I did give it a rather hard nudge, (smile). But, as of today, I am back. Fresh ginger tea this morning and juicing for the next 10 days. I felt wonderful for the 2 weeks or so that I juiced and ate raw. On last Friday, I prepared a delicious stuffed green pepper. I stuffed it with sauteed fresh red onion, garlic, and eggplant along with black beans and brown rice. I topped it off with fresh pureed tomatoes, seasoned to perfection. The whole family enjoyed it and didn't miss the meat at all.

I haven't stepped on a scale for a week. I don't feel like crying right now so I'll wait until perhaps Friday, or so, to log my results thus far. After the first week I lost 6 pounds, but nothing but a couple of ounces the next week; although I could see inches disappearing. Until next time...

Anyone else out there having a epiphany about their eating habits or going through a weight loss program? I would love to connect with you.

  1. Strangely enough, I'm on a 'weight gain' program this month. So far it isn't going too well. I'm hoping April will bring new inspiration. Will check the scale only by mid-April so it doesn't depress me!

  2. I do want to lose weight and be more health-conscious with my eating habits, as well as start exercising a bit. After baby number 8 (Yes, 8!) I kinda let it all hang out (literally!) but now that baby is 10 ms old, I figure I should try to be healthy again. I'm not on any kind of program, I just try to do little increments of exercise, like 5 minutes here and there, and I'm drinking a cleansing apple cider vinegar drink a few times a day. I probably should be weighing myself, but I haven't gotten that far yet, ha!
    Have a good weekend!

  3. Good for you! I've decided to try and get rid of that infernal post baby bump, but I can't see any results yet. Like Angelina, I was also drinking an apple cider vinegar cleanse but it was just horrid. Good luck with your weight loss program.

    Cheers,
