Hi, I've battled my weight most of my life. I actually weigh now what I weighed in elementary school - I was the fat kid back when not so many kids were fluffy. When I was in high school I lost 50 pounds the "right" way. I quit eating fried foods, ate lots of salads/fruits/vegetables, walked and did other exercises almost every day. Since then my weight has fluctuated several times - by anywhere from 10 - 30 pounds. I know that when I am mindful of my eating (only eat when I'm hungry, stop eating when satisfied, not full) and get somewhat regular exercise I fairly easily maintain my weight. Somehow life keeps slipping up on me and before I know it I've put on 10 pounds or more. I had finally gotten my weight back down, maintained it even through the holiday season, then somehow managed to gain 10 pounds in January, then another five pounds when I eliminated wheat from my diet a few months ago! Note to self - replacing wheat with processed products like gluten free cookies and corn chips is not conducive to weight loss! So now it is time to regroup once again. I still have limitations on exercise, but I'm trying to focus on what I can do instead doing nothing since I can't do the things I really want to.

    Thanks for the goodie :) I don't juice very often anymore, though I love my organic soy protein shakes. They are great. And in general I just eat clean in other forms, and fruits and veggies in their natural state (not juiced). But I love it!

    Hi! I saw you were in the clean eating forum and were completing a 15 day juice fast! emoticon . I am starting mine today! So I thought I would add you for support, advice, and motivation! Please share how it went and any tips. My goal is 7 days (ideally 10). But first to make it to 7. I have tons of fruits and veggies, my juice, and I do have a protein powder if I get desperate.

    I look forward to reading your blogs!

    Thanks for your support Teresa! I appreciate it. Yes, I've gained about 8 lbs., some from too many almonds. Kind of like your PB!
