New Leaf - The Rancho Commons — LiveJournal
Note to self: no whining, no slacking
New Leaf
271.5 this morning.  After 24 hours of juice fasting and not eating any solid food, I dropped 3 pounds.  Water weight, I know, because I got up to pee about every 2 hours all night.  However, It's the beginning of something much bigger. 

I watched a documentary on Netflix called Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead. I thought about it a bit, got Allie to watch it because she is my voice of reason in many things, then went shopping for a juicer.  I ended up getting the exact model they use in the movie. I've set an initial goal of 15 days for my fast. The guy in the film did 60. I might extend it that long if I feel good, am getting healthier, and am losing a lot of weight. If it is difficult and I'm hungry, weak, or miserable all the time, I can suffer for 15 days to get some results. I'm not committing to more yet.

I expect that I will drop at least 15 to 20 pounds during my 15 days. If it's more, beauty. My long term goal is to weigh approximately 100 pounds less than I do now. The guy in the video looked about like me when he started and he lost 84 pounds during his 60 day fast. And, he's kept it off. So will I.

That's the spirit! I clicked on your link and because I am very tired, the picture on the upper left made me laugh uncontrollably. I wonder who designed that one? Teehee.

Wow. It's already a bizarre picture, but it gets worse the more you look at it!
