Adding LIFE to your years and years to your life!
Hey there everyone!!! I'm so excited, I'm on day 4 of a new juice feast/fast. As you know I did another juice feast/fast last month and returned to 90% raw food, because of the price of the juicing.Well the arthritis in my lower back/tailbone has me running back to the juicing as long as I have a way to pay for it. The back pain lessened somewhere between day 2-4. I mean i could not get out of the bed during the night. In the day I was okay, after i showered but, at night I couldn't hardly move. So I said sorry I've got to go back to juicing. Thank God my coach bought me all of the items needed to make my juice and actually juiced it for me for the last 4 days. I hope that i will be able to have enough veggies and fruits to juice until the beginning of the new month, when I get a new inflow of cash.
I'm now one week into the third month of this new lifestyle, including my juicing time and have lost 26 pounds and 11 inches off my waist. This juicing is really turning out to be easy. I feel as though God has given me a miracle in my life with this juicing. I'm actually at 232.2 today, so that means hopefully, that I will be in the 220's by next week. I haven't been this weigh for over 7 years. I'm losing 2. something pounds daily.
I bought some cargo shorts at the resale shop last week and they are loosening up already. Today someone took me back to the resale shop to get some more clothes. I found two more cargo shorts ( Can you tell that I love cargo shorts) for 1/2 price (45 cents apiece) in sizes 42 and one 40, in anticipation, since I'm wearing a size 46 now.
Someone at church told me to stand up and asked me"what's happening to you?" you are losing weight and you look so good! I told them to keep praying that I would obey God in regard to my food, so I could get healthy .I was even able to help them put chairs up at church, something I hadn't been able to do since forever.
I have no idea how many days I'll continue this juice feast/fast, maybe for 30 or more days. I don't know. The way I feel now, I feel like I could go on for a long time, but, you know how things change.
I just hate that I can't exercise, I was sitting in a chair exercising for an hour, but, something tells me that all that sitting and walking, aggravated my lower back or shall I say tailbone to hurt more, so I stopped. I can't stand long enough to to exercise, so what do I do, since I have two knees, which need to be replaced, which is why I started this new lifestyle in the first place?? I am hoping for a natural healing to avoid having two knee replacements. I'm thinking about getting another cane and using it and the cane that I've tossed to the side together and just use them to walk for at less 30 minutes a day for starters. Anybody have any suggestions regarding exercise??
Well, I just wanted to update everyone on my progress, since some of you have been rooting for me and also praying for me, just as I have been rooting and praying for you. Have a great green week!!!
