Then today the pictures started showing up on Facebook. I'm not laughing that much when I am in the pictures. I don't look like that when I look in the mirror at myself. Where did all those chins come from?!
Yeah.. time to do something about that I think. I'm 43. I shouldn't have my grandmother's body yet.
I watched "Sick, Fat and Nearly Dead" on Netflix early this morning because everyone has been talking about the movie and a handful of my friends have done the juice cleanse and switched to mostly vegetarian diets and they all report good progress on weight loss.
I went today and got a ton of veggies, a few fruits, got a juicer and made up a schedule for exercise that starts Monday. I started on the diet part with dinner tonight.
This juice is called "Mean Green" and it is the main juice you drink for a 10 day juice fast. About 80 ounces of this a day, a good multivitamin and lots of water. No caffeine, no sugar, just juice. It isn't actually that bad, or that expensive to make. Plus I think going into spring, soon there will be fresh veggies at the local stand, and my daughter and I are putting in a big garden this year.
In the movie the guy, Joe, did the juice fast for 60 days. I don't think I will be able to go that extreme, but I need to do SOMETHING and according to my friends who've done this, after day 3 you start to really feel great and WANT to exercise you feel so good. I hope so. Those pictures of the Bunco party really depressed me.
Now for some happy thoughts..... I worked on the D9P this morning and got it to 40 inches square, quilted. I'm going to make it larger and the quilting is easy straight line quilting so it is going fairly quickly and I am loving how it is looking.
Hope everyone is having a lovely weekend so far and may your Sunday bring sunshine and joy. :)
