Yep i made it! very happy and proud of myself!!!! Not a lot to say really, this fast was pretty straight fwd. My weight loss is around 8-9 kg, a bit hard to tell my home scales say one thing and other scales say another. i have definately dropped a couple of sizes and things are fitting much better. i have more to lose of course but happy at this size at the moment. feeling very light and clean, i am having wonderful sleeps, clarity of thought, very productive at work. i am not physically active apart from my job so that needs to be addressed. this fast was so easy that i am thinking i cou ... read more

well today and tomorrow to juice and then its back to the land of eating! in some ways looking fwd to it, fruit never tastes so good and cucumber and tomatoe and advocado and carrot ohhh yummmo...but i do feel like this has been pretty easy, and gone quick so i think i could go longer. but i always say that at this stage of a fast. i have many plans in the next month and i am looking fwd to eating with friends and family..so not this time!! yesterday wasnt a great day and mostly because i worked long hours and late hours and didnt have enough juice, so by the time i got home i was hungry a ... read more

Hoping the next 5 days goes pretty quick, starting to really look fwd to eating fresh fruit and veggies!! Weight loss pretty bloody slow! argh frustrating...one thing i have not done on this fast is exercise, every other one i have exercised nearly everyday but the complete oposite this one..and the weight loss is the same..mmm interesting.
I have let some people know at work (i work in healthcare) what i am doing and the reaction is predictable. so for anyone who is going to do a fast you will find that peoples reactions are usually as follows: i could never do that...you are crazy...oh ... read more

Day 22 6 mon
Feeling pretty good, weight loss is slow but i have experienced this in other fasts so nothing unusual. my bathroom scales say i have lost 7 kgs but not sure they are very accurate. i have dropped at last one size in clothes close to two. i am in my pants that i wanted to be in but hoping for a little more off the middle section. motivated to keep going post fast to lose all of this extra blubber, again same questions why do i let myslef put on soo much weight..arghh gluten for punishment. i am starting to get hungry so trying to increase the amount of juice i am having but finding it hard ... read more

- Day 17 6 mon
Not much change really, i do feel nice and clean and lighter. i am juicing oranges in the morning and usually apples, pears or pineapple in the avo then having master cleanse and herbal teas as needed. lots of water too. im not having many juices one large glass in morning and another in afternoon. i had the chinese massage, no sleeping during that suc***, it bloody hurt and i have a few bruises on my back, bu hopefully released a bit of tension. although i am feeling pretty calm. acupuncture in two days. looking forward to next few days of juicing, nice and easy routing, no fuss no worrie ... read more

- Day 15 6 mon
Half way thru and i am absolutley going to see this thru, very bored with juices, dont really feel like anything but trying to keep them up for calories. I have lost a bit of weight, as always heaps to go. My sleping is all messed up again, when i sleep it is so deep but just have trouble falling asleep. Or rather that i like to go to bed late and sleep in, which has happened on other fasts too. I wish i could just go with what feels right but not sure work would completely understand sleeping thru the day!!
I am using lax teas to keep things going and that seems to be working ok, again w ... read more

- Day 12 6 mon
well i am back again, this is my sixth 30 day fast and im on day 12. i havent kept a blog so far because i havent felt i needed one but on reflection i wish i had. i will try and post how it has been the last 12 days and stay up with it now. but right now i am trying to get to sleep so i guess typing on here is counter productive!
will post more tomorrow! happy to be back!! visit the page
- back at it again! yah hoo!!!
- Day 30 of 30 14 mon
Woo hoo completed my fifth 30 day long juice fast. I am guessing i lost about 8kgs, again i still have probably another 5 to go mostly my tummy but happy to work on it with low carb low fat diet and increase the exercise. this fast was relatively easy in regards to my willpower but i do not think i got the benefits i usually feel. next one i need to look more into different types of juice and take the detox much more seriously. i think it would be good to to start a 60 day one right from teh start. but now the hard stuff begins trying to ease into eating and not go overboard! lookign forwa ... read more

Woo hoo only two days to go and not even a broken juicer is going to stop me getting there! Yep unfortunately yesterday it just stopped working! i am going to make it thru on master cleanse and i queezed orange juice in a little hand squeezer - tedious but lucky only two days to go. weight isn’t budging at all which is again very frustrating. looking forward to finishing, but very glad i have done it! visit the page

- Day 23 of 30 15 mon
Still going ok some days are better than others, yesterday i ran and for the first time i had energy and was not really sore. i cannot wait to get to 30 days. the weight is coming off but very very slow, the scales have only moved a couple of pounds in 9 days. this is hard to cope with but experience has told me that this happens. my pants that i go by now fit me fine, my aim was to get to the point that they are too big. not sure if that is going to happen in this fast so again looks like i have more work to do after the fast. still need to look at why i continue on this roller coaster ri ... read more

well it is very strange for me posting so far into a fast. this is the first time i have done one without blogging everyday, the main reason i started to post is i really like looking back on how i was feeling and when i did previous fasts. it helps. and since i plan doing a 30 day fast every year it is a good record!
yep so i am 18 days in and feeling pretty good. i will say as usuall i am a bit bored with the fast. i really miss eating but i also love the light feeling you get with fasting. i am not sure what i weighed before i started i just know i was overweight. the last four months ... read more

tought nite last night between 5&8pm wanting to participate in normal acitivity..argghh its tough! glad i got thru it but man these early days really do test you! slept wonderful, very tired today - due to major detoxing hopefully. still not feeling any true benefits yet...these next few days for me are usually the hardest..the weekend is approaching! thinking of buying scales??? not sure the last few fasts i have not used them because i didnt want it to be all about the weight but sometimes it can motivate thru a difficult stage..mmm will think about it!

slept really well last night didnt want to get out of bed, thank goodness i have to work otherwise would have laid there for hours and then be awake all night. trying to avoid a bad sleeping pattern which has happened to me on previous fasts. starting to get those little voices in my head saying you dont have to do this, just eat, have fun dont worry about the cleansing. they come and go and really its just a matter of telling myself i want to do this! well hopefully that and sticking to it! my tongue is covered in white yuck which is good. not having enough bm’s so will have to have lax t ... read more

non eventful really...a bit of trouble sleeping but to be expected. first few days of the fast just a means to getting to a point where i feel fantastic, usually around day 7-10. sticking to apple and orange juice, water and herbal tea. this has worked in the past so going with what gives me the most sucess whilst achieving my goals and cleansing. no exercise as yet will work on this in the next few days!! visit the page
- just going thru the motions
- Day 1 of 30 20 mon
well here i go again - time for a cleanse and i guess there is no better day to start then today!! goals are as usual get thru each day and have milestones to achieve. this is again about weight but i dont have that much to lose this time - 10-15 pound would be good. this one is more about the detox and getting healthy!! christmas, new year and easter have taken its toll on me and i find i am eating food that i never use to eat - so i want to get back to that feeling of being clean and not clogged up. its also about taking control and exercising my power over consumption!!
i am feeling bo ... read more

- 2 month update 23 mon
my weight has still remained the same which is good that i have not gained any but i do still have a desire to be smaller but obviously not putting the work in to make that happen. christmas and new year was a big test and some of it was good some not so good. i did not overeat which i am proud of myself. i maintained mostly raw on most days and when i did eat cooked i really portion controlled. exercise was not good and still isnt. i only went for one walk in two weeks, i definately want to get back into it and just have to make myself do it. i am really considering another 30 day fast bu ... read more

friday - mostly raw, no exercise
saturday - cooked, no exercise
sunday - cooked, no exercise
monday - mostly raw , run 4 miles & weights
tuesday - mostly raw, run 4 miles
wednesday - cooked, walk little lake

Same story as last week really - i havent put on any weight and i havent lost any. I am ok with this at the moment but still have a bit to go to get to where i want, but i am still happy with my progress so far. My week went like this:

Saturday - cooked, no exercise
sunday - cooked, walk around little lake
Monday - mostly raw, walk around big lake
Tuesday - mostly raw, run 4 miles
Wednesday - mostly raw, run 4 miles

thurs - raw, run 4 mile
fri - raw, no exercise
sat - mostly raw, long walk on beach
sun - more cooked than no exercise
mon - raw, no exercise
tues - mostly raw, run 4 miles
wed - mostly raw, walk big lake and run 3 miles
i was hoping to juice three days a week but it didnt happen will try again next week. i wasnt very happy about having three days off exercise but will definatly fix that this week! when i say mostly raw it is generally raw all day and then for dinner raw salad and a piece of ... read more

Well with a banana and mandarin the fast is over - i finally weighed myself and i am 140pd. the last time i weighed myself ws a long time before the fast but i was 162 pd I am guessing i was around that weight if not a little heavier, so i lost 22pd - not bad not great but about average for what i lose on a fast. I may continue to post each week to keep track - realy want to continue on this path of health and well being and weight loss visit the page

I love posting that headline! Woohoo very proud of myself i have proven i still have it in me to do this!! Feeling really good, tonight i walked around the big lake and did some weights etc. It feels like the exercise is here to stay. I dont know my weight exactly but judging on other fasts and how a few things fit i would say around the low 140’s, with a loss of probably about 20 pounds. This is not really great I would love to be lower but i guess that is just how things work. I am nervous about ending in a sense but i know how to keep things on track so just have to put that into practi ... read more

Ran again tonight had lower energy than last night and my legs were a bit sore. Had to work thru lunch today so didnt get my juice which really didnt help with the run. Last day tomorrow as always mixed emotions about finishing. Very much in the fasting rythm it seems such a pity to disrupt it. But its will be good too start working on this weight the hard way - with food added! I am glad i am not weighing myself but it does make it harder to gauge how things are going and also in future to read back on- but will post more thoughts on that tomorrow and may even go and weigh myself somewher ... read more

- Day 28 26 mon
today was a good day feeling really great - ran four miles and did some weights situps and push ups. Definately getting fitter. The worse thing is the weight is not moving at all- i am not weighing myself but going by clothing and my smaller work pants dont fit me any better than last week. I experienced this last two fasts where the weight slows downs to snail pace at the end. it hardly seems possible when i am exercising so much. I guess the body is in protection mode or my metabolism has slowed right down..mmm not sure but very frustrating when you are doing all the hard work and not se ... read more

- Day 26 & 27 26 mon
Last weekend of fasting- it was very laid back. Saturday walked the big lake and sunday was a day of rest - completely! Back into running tomorrow. Starting to want food, i am not hungry just looking fwd to eating. Weight is not budging at all - i know if i kept going it would have to eventually disappear! Well three more days to go and time to get back to reality! visit the page
