Recently I have been noticing how my clothes are getting tighter. I am now happy or confident with the way that my body looks. I am fed up of hiding underneath baggy clothes and hating my full length reflection.
There is nothing to blame for my weight gain apart from me. However I do feel that my depression and anxiety has had a part to play. I have been less motivated and to be honest, I haven't really looked after myself. I have eaten more and have drunk more alcohol.
It is easy to hide under baggy tops, keep saying it's my baby belly, or I eat because I am content. I know that my hubby loves me as I am but I want to look better. I want to look like the person that he fell in love with and married again.
While we were away I decided to do something about it and started looking for a way to go.
As many of you will have seen, on the internet Juice Plus is everywhere. I will admit to looking at before and after pictures and thinking "yeah right" and thinking that there was some great photo editing involved. However when I found out that a childhood friend had lost 50lbs by following the Juice Plus programme I decided to give it a go. When I looked online for any reviews on Juice Plus there were very few.
I am going to be giving you a true and honest insight into the Juice Plus diet. I have taken some before pictures and I hope that I can show you that you can achieve the great results that I have seen. If I don't get these great results, I will tell you!
Today is day one of the pre Juice Plus shakes detox. I have got a huge list of foods which are now banned! No alcohol, no caffeine, no sugar, no dairy, no bread, no cheese the list goes on. However there is a long list of foods which I can have, fresh fruit and vegetables, fish, poultry, game, vegetable juices, nuts and milk substitutes. I do not use a lot of processed foods so preparing fresh, healthy meals will not be a problem. For a week I am having breakfast, mid morning snack, lunch, mid afternoon snack and dinner.
I now have the determination behind me and my hubby's support so I am sure I will succeed.
Here's to a healthier me!
