Day 3 - Juice redux
As is my habit, I’ve been absent.  Again.  I was posting last about my 60 day juicing effort.  I made it until just before my birthday when I had a planned break for Father’s Day and my 50th birthday.  After that, I just didn’t have the heart or the strength, or cojones, or whatever it was going to take, to return to juicing.  I went about 32 days and went from 273.5 to 248.

Since that time I have continued to eat a much improved diet, keep my blood sugar reasonably under control, and maintain the new weight.  Saturday I began a 15 day juice so this is day 3.  Juice only.  I started at 248.5 and am now 246.  My plan is to do shorter juice fasts so I don’t have to endure the misery of not enjoying good food for such a long time.  It is much easier to deny myself knowing it’s only for a couple of weeks.

I have worked the last 2 nights and I work tonight.  Tomorrow I begin walking again.  This is a short term plan to accomplish my long term goal of weighing less than 200, specifically about 180, ideally even less.  But realistically, I think 200 is a very reasonable goal health-wise.  If I never get much lower than that, I’m still going to be tremendously healthier than I was at my 314 max.

I’ve decided to juice a week or two at a time interspersed with periods of eating and maintaining, and exercising (again, ideally) during ALL of those times.  This seems to be the most effective method for me in reaching my goals.

Wow, great progress! Sounds as if you're doing well, Bruce. I've always figured it's a good idea to adjust your method to something you feel comfortable with. It's easier to stick to it.
