Juicing The Pounds Away

Hello everyone, my name is Courtney and I am 20 years old. After recent trips to the doctor, I have learned that I have to have my gall bladder removed. Although this is a step in the right direction, it has to be followed with very healthy eating, and a complete change in lifestyle. They say if it comes to you three times, it must be meant to be. The idea of Juicing as a way to lose weight came to me. My family sent me some juicing products, so that I can get my nutrients until the surgery, when I can eat again. These products are the closest thing next to real fruit.

Then I picked up this month’s episode of Ebony, which had an article about Juicing

Then my dad sent me a link for a machine called The Health Master, which Montel Williams has used to help manage his MS.

So I have decided to take this up as I share my journey with all of you. I currently weigh 178 lbs, which for my height is considered “obese”. After first hearing this word I thought “WHAT NOT ME?!?!” , but when you learn to accept your reality it becomes easier to handle. So my goal is to get my weight down to what is considered healthy which is around 130 lbs. Cannot wait to get started and learn from any suggestions you all have.

I too had the "What Not me!!" moment. Sometimes that's what it takes to get you motivated. Good luck and I look forward to reading about your journey :-)

Good luck Courtney. I wish you a speedy recovery with your surgery.

My 11 year old daughter is a vegetarian and loves when I juice. I make her icees and shakes with the juice. It tastes great and its good for you. I can also slip some must needed vegetables in her fruit juices. You'll enjoy it. I don't juice as often as I would like because of the time. You have to plan ahead, shop more often to keep your products fresh and the clean up, though simple, also takes time.
My advice is plan ahead. Take a day and test the juicer. Create recipes that you know you like the taste of so you don't spend a lot of time trying to get it "just right" during the week. Can't wait to follow your journey!
