Over a month ago, I verbally tried to begin a second juice reboot with the hope of losing another 30 lbs. by the middle of May. Well, I'm sorry to say that didn't happen and with my goal date right around the corner, I'm feeling a bit disappointed and ...well, a little silly.
The good news is, I haven't gained weight. Which is so encouraging, but as I found out last week at my annual physical, I'm still 40 pounds overweight and my BMI (body mass index) is 30 which simply translated means = obese. In short, it's too early to celebrate. Though incredibly grateful for the significant loss and the nutritional re-education, my journey continues.
I've given it some thought and I'm ready to commit again. I've struggled to get my mind focused but I remember all to well how great I'll feel and how fast I'll lose the rest of this flab. I think my problem the past few weeks has been contentment. I've felt SO much better and enjoyed all the nice comments but when I imagine what it's going to feel like to lose 40 more pounds, it's easy to get excited!
So, the old calendar I used in January and February, is back on the wall. I'll take it one day at a time, eating and drinking and drinking all the fresh fruits and vegetables all day long.
Today was a tough. Truthfully, I didn't enjoy the juice...but I did enjoy imagining how great it will feel to drop 5 lbs this week. For now I'll focus on that and I'll let you know when it gets easier. Probably in a few days. Until then, I get busy cleaning out my closet again. It wont be long until everything in there will be too big.
