Beginning again, for a much better reason

Day 1, Thurs April 22nd 2010 - Currently it's April 28th and this is my 7th day on my juice fast. However I began this journal privately on the 22nd and just now decided to post it here. I've never done anything like this before, but I've been glued to these CureZone blogs and I really do think they help. Dazzle's Blog was wonderful! So....my story begins like this: I went to see my Gyn on the 22nd for a routine exam and when I got on the scale it read 150. At this point I should probably tell you I'm a 5'5" 50 year old woman...who is apparently overweight. When I stepped off that scale I knew right then I was going to start a new fast. I'd been wanting to but was never in the right frame of mind. I could never plan a fast (like you should). It's always been some "wake-up call moment that catapults me into one. I've been on 2 other "serious" fasts. The first one was a year ago last Jan so about a year and a half ago. I completed a 30 day Master Cleanse. It was FANTASTIC. I lost all my excess weight and looked and felt GREAT. The next one was about 8 months later because I had gained some of the weight back and because of excessive partying felt I needed a cleanse, so I did a 17 water only fast. It was AWFUL though I do believe strongly in them. I didn't do a proper pre-fast (see above!) and ended up in bed almost the entire time with a horrid headache. Anyway, after having a huge and I do mean huge life change I had the opportunity to actually not work for a YEAR and laze around and enjoy doing nothing. My life to this point was extremely rigid and very very busy, so this was so new for me. The end result being I gained weight. About 20 or 25 lbs or so. ANYWAY, back to now- little did I know after I got off the scale I'd have a better reason to do this fast-my Gyn felt some weirdness in my uterus-specifically my ovaries, and the subsequent ultra sound proved there was a mass. Not good. I find out this Friday what exactly is up. Nuff said on that. SO, I'm copy/pasting my journal entry for Day 1 here: Starting this fast out with NO pre-fast as per usual. Probably not a good idea for a heavy drinker like me so we'll
see. Not drinking is what has been keeping me from beginning this fast. Bought a 25 lb bag of carrots and 3 big sale bags of apples from the Co op! I had 3 16oz juices today spread throughout the day consisting of carrot, sweet potato, kale (was great!),apples and celery. More "juicy" in the morning, while the evening was was very savory. Was not hungry today.
PS-while trying to post this it is asking me for "Abstract" no idea what that is? So I'll just fill something in. If anyone out there reads this could you please let me know? Thanks
