Day 6

I’m cruising right along with my juicing, and the pounds are falling off. It gets tough at times, but I’m coming to realize that the times when I’m most tempted to deviate are when I’m hungry or bored. I’m also a bit of an emotional eater, so if something is upsetting me, I tend to reach for comfort foods. I know I’m far from alone in that respect, but there’s something cathartic about getting it out there in black and white.
I’m feeling pretty good right now and I’ve been getting support from friends and family, which is awesome and very much appreciated. I’ve always been a smartass/cynic, so it feels good to be doing something positive and getting encouragement for it. While I’m on the subject of encouragement, now is as good a time as any to mention my friends Katie and Whitney have started a weight loss blog of their own. They’re both going to lose 40 pounds and document it at Be sure to check it out and show them your support.
The energy levels are getting back to normal, on the way to increased, so I’m going to start exercising. I have been walking with the dogs pretty regularly, but I need to step it up a bit. I canceled my gym membership last month, so I’m hoping the passcode I have for the fitness center at my old office still works. I think I’ll start off with the elliptical and gradually integrate some treadmill work. I really want to get back into running again. It’s probably the activity I miss the most from my fitter days.
Well, I’m gonna sign off. If you’re reading this, do me a favor and leave a brief comment below, even if it’s just “Hi.” It would be great to know who’s seeing this.


  1. WTG Andrew! You're inspiring me. What kind of juicer do you have?

  2. Thanks, Susan! Here's my juicer:

    Waring Professional JEX450 Pulp-Eject Juice Extractor, Brushed Stainless by Waring

    It's really good for its price range and cleanup isn't too bad. I actually have a YouTube video where I clean it in less than three minutes.

  3. Hi. I'm reading and enjoying tracking your progress... It makes me happy and slightly emotional, but I think I'm a sap :) I'm trying to increase how much I read, so keep writing, especially the big words like cathartic. Haha. Keep the juices flowing! xoxo

  4. Hi! I just like reading my friends' blogs, mostly because I have voyeuristic tendencies and I think I've become a bit of an internet stalker (of my friends, I'm really not interested in strangers). But I do really like the positivity, and I love when my friends do good things for themselves. Keep up the great work! :)

  5. Just wanted to make a note of.. My comment did not migrate over from the last blogger. But, hi and happy juicing!

  6. You rock! And how cute are those losers sisters? ;-)
