Fasting Support for Christin L.
I am ready to undertake a 30 day juice fast. I plan to start on February 1st. I began eating raw this past Monday and my roommate and I purchased a Champion juicer which will be arriving in the mail tomorrow.
I am 29 and I live in San Diego, California. I am a solid 60lbs overweight and miserable. I have abused my body to no end. Like you, I was once an addict, though by the grace of God I have been sober now for almost three years. I have had my cervix removed due to cancerous cells, my hair has been falling out, and I can’t get up in the morning. I used to be a ballet dancer in great shape but drove my car off a four story cliff in Pennsylvania and shattered my lower right leg and ankle which are reconstructed with pins and a plate. (They saved my foot thank God…it looks completely fine now!) Anyway not walking for close to two years, and coming off pain medication, eating food at my mom’s house and feeling sorry for myself, all allowed me to gain weight that i have not shed.
I have a very addictive personality and I have been slowly improving my life and this is the final frontier. I am surrounded by good people, a great church, a wonderful successful job, and I am in school….though I have had to scale back my activities because i am so tired. So it’s got to stop.
I quit coffee and sugar and carbohydrates this week. I’ve just been eating fruits and veggies, all raw, and some raw nuts or an avocado here and there, and herbal tea. I’ve already been feeling pretty crappy but I know I need to hang in there. I think eating raw for another week will help cushion the blow of the detox a bit, which is important because i can’t take any time off work just now so I can’t afford to be too sick. My plan is to try to water fast one day each weekend (so I have time to rest) and juice fast the other six days. I am having my first colon hydrotherapy treatment on Saturday.
Anyway, instead of being on my space or something, I thought perhaps I would make a profile on your site and blog about my experiences so that hopefully by the grace of God I can help someone else, like the stories I have read that have strengthened me.
I would love any advice you could give me, especially since my primary goal is weight loss. I do not want to drink too much or the wrong kind of juice.
