....is it SO HARD to Maintain???
I did the hcg maintenance so absolutely perfectly, gradually adding a little more fats~oil, nuts, avocado, more salads, fruits etc... I was so careful not to have any breads or sweets or alcohol for at least 3 weeks, but even so, the scales crept upward! it was so discouraging! I felt I probably wasn't eating enough, from what I have leaned about dieting in the past, but I was almost scared to eat at all. I gained about 2 kg and then leveled off. I thot: ok, lets maintain here....but then Christmas came along, lots of parties and food and I was up another 2 kg. It would have been so easy to give up!
If I have to work SO hard to maintain, I'd rather be at my optimum size and weight, and then continue to fight for it! I need at least a 6 month break from hcg now for it to work, and by then I will be travelling again. I need to do something NOW!
By chance I happened to watch a movie, not even knowing what it was called ~ about this guy who does juice, has cured his disease and lost 200 pounds. It was very inspiring!! I even own a juicer, so I got it off the shelf, dusted it, and bot some vegetables and fruit!
I subsequently told others about it, and they had all heard of Joe Cross! Fat Sick & Nearly Dead: www.rebootwithjoe.com
Jan 1 2013 is day one of at least a 15 day juice fast!!
I buy fruit and vege every 2 days!! Pete has the odd juice and I have been giving my grand boys (staying here with me for a month) one juice a day too! So...I use LOTS of green groceries!!
Today is the end of day 5 and I'm feeling great. I feel so clean inside!! AND I'm watching the scales retreat back to where they are suppose to be, and when I get below that..... then I am progressing!
Pete and I and the boys did a bike ride across the harbour bridge and around the Quay today. I love it!
I didn't have my usual energy, but I did pretty good!
