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.
