Reboot 2, Day 1

Ok... so apparently Brian and I have gotten lazy when it comes to update videos.  We're sorry for that, but I promise I'll have something for you next week!  Especially now that we're undertaking a 2nd Reboot!  That's right!  This will only be 30 days this time.  I will, as before, try to update daily on the progress.

After the Q&A with Joe Cross, Brian and I have learned some more fascinating details about juicing and where we might not have really gotten all we could've out of ours.  The occasional cheats, it seems, breaks the fast and reintroduces hunger as well as your body's process of storing fat.  So absolutely no cheats this time.  Even if that means going some time without juice or food at all.  Now that we both have juicers there should be no excuses.

For all those out there, both of you, thanks for the encouragement and if you are rebooting as well... Congrats!  I support you in spirit and offer my chronicle here of experience as a helpful guide in whatever form it can.  Juice on!

Original Weight: August 10, 2011 - 305lbs

Reboot 2 Starting Weight, Day-1: 255lbs

Edit:  It is now the end of Day 1 and it wasn't too bad today.  Got home and went to bed for a few hours to help stave off the hunger pains... but feeling decent overall.  I expect tomorrow/(day after) to be a little tougher as my body starts to yearn for dietary fiber and the usual energy sustenance.  But looking forward to Day 4+ when that goes away and the peaceful feelings begin.

Post-DAY 60

So we (Brian and Myself) apologize for being really bad bloggers and not keeping everyone up to date as well as no videos.  We've been celebrating and living it up!  We've both decided to continue with another juice fast as of tomorrow (Monday, Oct. 23) for a couple weeks.  The break has been fun, but old habits and old problems are creeping back up and I'm jazzed to start back and drop more poundage and feel even better!

Thanks to everyone who has followed along and helped with the encouragement.  I hope you guys/gals will keep it coming and check in from time to time.  I've still got about 35lbs to go to reach my ultimate goal of 220.  Hopefully by the early part of next year.  I've dropped the bulk, now time for the chunk, and eventually the trim up.  I'll try to update frequently.

DAY 52/53/54/55

Getting way too lax on updating this thing as of late.  Been real busy and not-home all week.  Finally finished the video which I'll probably upload before going to bed.  I feel real bad as this week has turned out to be an off-the-wagon week for me.  No money and cheap high-calorie food to stave off hunger have left me feeling bloated, tired, and in a general state of melancholy.

I get paid tomorrow so I intend to do right this weekend and next week.  I don't know if I will join Brian on a full 15-day continuation after Day-60... but I will be doing another reboot before the end of the year for sure.  Until then it's going to be a juice/mix diet focusing primarily on micronutrient foods, juices, and as few simple carbs, high fat, and high-sodium foods as I can.

I will also be forgoing the regular updates until the final day so it will be a surprise lol.

Sorry for the extreme delay, but been busy and out and about with Brian this weekend as well as lots of travel and playing Monopoly hours on end.

Don't have any stats, but gained a pound since last week and same waist size.

I will try to get the video up by Tuesday.

DAY 42

Day 42 went pretty good... except... I have a confession to make.  I was at Whole Foods getting some produce for a batch of juice and found myself summoned by the sirens' call at the other side of the store: The side that has fresh oven baked pizza.  The temptation, and my growing hunger, led me to purchase a slice of salami and cheese pizza.  It was incredibly fresh and delicious but carried the rather unsavory flavor of guilt.

I will not be detered from the goal though!  Sometimes we trip and fall but it's jumping back on the saddle that's important. 

Weight: unknown

Consumed:  Carrot-Lime-Spinach juice, a banana, a salad, and a large slice of pizza.
