Exactly seven days. I have made it exactly seven days. I have lost exactly ten pounds. Ten pounds!! I think the dramatic loss on the first two or three days were water weight, but now I think I'm actually losing real weight. Ten more pounds and I have a bunch of clothes that I have missed wearing for months. 

I have no doubt that I can make it to Friday. No doubt. I have even demanded a date night out on Friday night from the hubby. Hello, dinner salad and water with lime. I'm guessing most restaurants don't keep beets on the menus. 

This fast didn't require much self control. That's one thing I that got my weight to the amount that it was. No self control to keep myself from eating foods that are bad for me and not eating ones that are extremely beneficial.

I'm taking the juicer on vacation with us. I won't juice every meal, but I will juice at least once a day. I kinda like this healthy stuff. I really like how I feel this week. When we get back, I'll probably try again for the 30 days.....but after I do a little more research on the lack of protein in the juicing fast. I have bought a couple of books on this juicing fast craze and will do things a little different next go around. 

Energy is still up. I'm still doing the xbox Nike workouts and coaching softball is helping. I also went for a little walk yesterday. It was gorgeous outside. Temperature in the 80's outside is perfect to me. 

Sleeping is better. Before the juice fast I was waking up at least once to sneeze like crazy and another time to tinkle. I was also sleepwalking. (Still don't believe that is true and not the hubby and kids playing a prank on me.) Then I was waking up at 4am. Wide awake. The last two days I've slept without waking up and have struggled to get out of bed at 7:30 to take the high school kid to school. The old me used to be able to sleep anywhere and hard for a good twelve hours. 

I'm still using the restroom everyday. Not sure how that is possible, and you probably don't want to know that much about me, but there's plenty of fiber in these fruits and vegetables. I'm also still keeping up with the 

On Friday I'll go ahead and give out stats. I weighed and measured the day I started this and will weigh and measure again on Friday before I eat anything solid. 

Three more days. I really can do this.  Tomorrow I'm going to browse at shoes online. Yay shoes! Even better, yay weighing less and being healthier.

Can you tell us what brand of juicer you are using?

Inquiring minds want to know. Does it produce a lot of scrap to throw out?

From Another Part-Time Juicer: My dog loves the carrot pulp and gobbles it right up - I don't ever give him too much though. Other pulps can be used to make crackers if desired, or it's absolutely great for your compost pile.
