Adding LIFE to your years and years to your life!
If you have been reading anything about my blog you know that I have been doing this juicing (without pulp) with my husband where we can juice as MUCH as we want and I add in 3 meals a week and he adds in 4 meals a week. Plus 1 night (date night) we give ourselves a night to go out and have some drinks if we want to.
I don't weigh myself but my husband has been saying that he can tell I have lost weight. I on the other hand just don't see it like he does but I have been at this new way for 2.5 weeks now. That is drinking these juice filled drinks with all kinds of fruits and vegetables. I don't say no to anything that goes in them except our juicing does extract all the pulp. To add my meals have been all raw. That is I usually make a huge salad with nuts, goat cheese sometimes. raisins, dates, avocado and again I don't hold back because I want to enjoy what I wish for. I got to admit I feel fuller than I use to fill when I eat and my dear husband the engineer explains this is because our stomachs are shrinking. My husband on the other hand will eat meat, bread and all the trimmings for his meals and he too is losing weight. I think he has lost almost 7 or so pounds now. Either way, I need to take some pics of him and will share them here too when we can do this.
I was going to wait and show pics later but when I took the pics today I was like...wow, there is progress and without a scale I wouldn't know so the pics is all I got for show and tell. So what the heck..I figure I show you as I continue down the path because in truth...my husband and I have made the decision that this is our way now. I am really enjoying this idea and accepting it is easy since I feel so good juicing.
Let me add, I also started exercising again too so the combination of all of these things are good for me. I am someone who came off of HCG 3x's in the last 2 years and gained most of the weight back I fought so hard to lose. I have done Atkins too, primal eating and whatever else except never had I thought of raw foods until my husband pulled me in and suggested it. I decided to follow his lead and not mine for a change. I got to say I'm happy to see these pics and it feels good knowing I can eat, feel good, I am slimming down slowly and it's not as hard as I had thought because I dont crave foods like I use to. Truthfully, HCG was harder than this. My pics are not to scale and sorta hard to judge all the progress. but what the heck...I figure I post them anyways. Thanks for all your support!
