Juice Fast Day #1 here we come!

JuiceFastingFor anyone that knows me personally or has followed some of my weight loss journeys knows that I have struggled with weight loss most of my life. About 4 years ago I lost 80 lbs in 6 months doing WW, went from a size 22 down to a size 6! Today I have gained all that weight back and then some! After watching the movie “Fat Sick and Nearly Dead” my husband and I were very inspired to do a juice fast. We feel the same way, we’re overweight, we always feel sick (my husband has diabetes and I have high blood pressure and liver problems) always making it feel like we are almost near death.

We have tried many different things to lose weight and have not been too successful as of yet. I’m very excited to do this juice fast because it’s new and something I have never done before. At the same time I’m a little scared because I have never done a fast before and not sure what to expect and may not be ready for the effects of it.

Before we started we picked up a juicing machine and tons of fruits and veggies. We will be documenting our experience as we go. I know these first few days are going to suck!


My starting weight is 271.8 lbs and my husbands is 169.6 lbs.

Have you ever done a juice fast? How was the outcome? How did you feel after?

    In the past, I seriously want to do this but I was unable to do so.. I wish I could have continued though.. it would be super awesome.

  • Camesha

    I haven’t done a juice fast. I wish you luck. What happens after the fast to maintain your progress? Sounds interesting.

    I’ve never done a juice fast, but I think it seems like it should avoid the problems of a regular fast, namely dehydration. Just be very careful to make sure you are getting the nutrient you need and that you don’t end up consuming too many calories because your body doesn’t know it’s full. Part of why I’m still struggling with my weight is because I’ve replaced the pop I used to drink with juice, which is better, but is still a lot of calories that sneak up on you.

    I have been looking at juicers lately!! I really want one and you juices look great!

    Thanks Jenni! =) We’re on day 3 and yesterday was really bad with headache and fatigue and wanting to throw up. Today slight headache and little more energy.

    Hi Tami
    We’re on day 3 and yesterday and today have been really bad with headaches. Ugh. Hope it goes away soon.

  • Jenni E. {Sweet Pennies from Heaven}

    My 2 sisters actually just came off of a juice fast. The same one you’re doing because I remember the name of that show you mentioned. They wanted to go a full 7 days, although some go much longer than that. She said day 3 was misery….but by day 5 you feel like a brand new person! I wish you all the luck!! Best wishes!!

    It’s great to see many people , just like you guys do, to live healthier. Goodluck on your weightloss journey guys.

  • Ann Bacciaglia

    I am looking forward to following your journey with juicing. I have always wanted to try it. Juice is such a healthy way to get your nutrients.

  • Jeanine

    I haven’t ever done a juice fast but I would love to. I’ve had a few friends who have had great results. When done the right way it will be great. After I’m done breastfeeding I will give it a try!

  • Raijean

    Oh you are doing yours the long way, I cheated and got them already packaged. I wish I was a disciplined as you are.

  • Shaney Vijendranath

    I really want to do something like this after my pregnancy. I’ve been hearing a lot about it.

  • Tami

    I have had many success stories with this. Everything I drank came back up my first day on it with a huge headache to start it off.

  • lisa @bitesforbabies

    Besides the losing weight factor, juicing is SO healthy for you and a great way to get in extra vitamins and minerals from all those veggies!

  • Fi Ní Neachtáin

    Good luck with your juicing journey. I hope it works for you and that you’re able to feel healthier from it all.

  • Mhie Lee

    I love to make my own juice and its more healthy than buying those prepared one. I agree with you, first is always the hardest one. Good luck.

  • Nina Say

    I have always wanted to go on a juice fast. My problem is that I can never actually manage to get my hands on a quality juicer. Good luck, I bet this is going to do great!

  • Marie

    Good luck on your journey, looking forward to your updates too! Yes it will suck but just hang on there, everything will be easier as you go.

    Good luck with the juice fast! I haven’t tried a juice fast before but I always wonder how they play a part in weightloss for good.

  • Michelle @ Dishes and Dust Bunnies

    I can totally relate! Back in 2008 I lost nearly 80lbs like you did but I did it way to quick (4 months) and gained it all back plus more after I had my son. You can do this! You did it once and you can keep it off!! I’m rooting for you!

  • rochkirstin

    Juicing really works to lose weight. My uncle also does that and he lost about 30 pounds in a month with everyday juicing and not eating much rice. That is also with the help of exercise.

  • Liz Mays

    I’ve never done one of these but I’ve read a little about them. I think it will be kind of fun to start juicing more often.

  • celebbabylaundry

    I have done this before, it is really tough the first three days! But you slowly get used to it and can really feel like you can make it.

  • Kisa Johnson

    I’ve wanted to do a juice fast before, but just couldn’t get myself to do it. If the juice was thick or had too much texture it just is a no go. So I’d pretty much not be able to manage. I hope it goes well for you anyway! I’ve heard great things about it.

  • Christy Maurer

    Good luck to you with this! I haven’t done this but I need to clean up my eating! I weigh more now than ever 🙁 It is so hard to KEEP it off!

  • Wendy

    I heard recently that a fast can get your sweet cravings under control. That along with the weight lose and cleansing of your system is making me consider trying one.

  • Alli

    I have fasted in the past. The first 3 days were rough, but after that, it was pretty smooth sailing. Hope you both accomplish your goals! Looking forward to watching your progress.

  • Stacie @ Divine Lifestyle

    I’ve never tried a juice fast before. I have friends who have and they gave it mixed reviews.

  • Robin (Masshole Mommy)

    I have been seriously considering doing something like this. I have been eating like crap lately and need something like this.
