I will begin my juicing adventure today. I have seen the documentary Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead, which made me interested in juicing. It’s a really well done movie, worth watching even if you have no interest in juicing. I also have a facebook friend who has been juicing and looks great. Her skin is better and her body is rocking. She makes me excited to try it.
I weighed myself last night at work. I work nights in a hotel and there is a scale in our work out room. Right now I am at 226 and am 5’9. I would give you my measurements, but I don’t own a tape measure….or a juicer. I am going to buy that this afternoon. This is me right now. Ready to lose that tummy!
I want to keep this blog to show my journey into health. I am tired of going into stores and sometimes finding nothing that fits. I want to look good. Another thing, I’ve always had problems with my skin. Everything I have read or watched says juicing will help give you a better complexion. Most importantly, I don’t want to die early because of a preventable disease. If you don’t have your health, then really you don’t have anything.
There will also be posts about what kind of eating habits led to this overweight issue, what I wished I would have known at a younger age, and recipes I find very good or very bad.
I am very lucky that I already like most veggies and fruits. In the past two years I have included more produce than I ever had into my diet, and about three weeks ago started being a vegetarian, (I lost ten pounds, I was at 236.) I want to take it to the next level though.
I will also add, my last solid food that I will have for a while was a pizza with onions on it. I know pizza is very bad, but I wanted it as my last unhealthy thing.
I would love some comments or tips if you juice or have juiced.
