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.
