Reboot Time Once Again!

If you’re an old follower of this blog, “I’m back!” If you’re a new follower, “Welcome!”

`Tis February 2014. I did not hit my goal of 290 pounds. In fact, I gained twenty pounds back since my last blog post in November. As of this blog post I weigh… 360 pounds. I could blame this on a creative burst in my writing, or the fact that I uprooted my family and moved from Alabama to Georgia thus disrupting the fluid existence we had maintained for almost five years, or I could be honest and tell you that I’m lazy and love food. 🙂

Anyway, the point is, I’m back at it again. Starting March 3rd, I’m going on a carrot juice fast for seven days. I know a lot of you don’t think this works, but it works for me. That is a fact. Every time I kick start my weight loss with a cleanse (especially a juice cleanse) I drop 10 to 15 pounds of waste in the first week. That gives me the boost in energy I need to start exercising. Once I come off the liquid diet, I don’t crave the baked goods and confections and fried foods that escalated my weight to a point where I was killing myself at 410 pounds.

My weight will be a constant struggle for me. I was born fat and have been fat ever since. I never had my “Skinny Period” (whatever that means) and don’t care to have one. I simply want to be healthy. I kicked smoking and drinking, but for some reason food still controls me.

Reboot #3, here we go. Third time’s the charm, and all that happy horse [expletive deleted].

Oh, for those of you who don’t know, I don’t cuss in this blog because I want people of all ages to gain from it. 🙂

  1. I like that you call it “reboot.” With “reboot” (which I’m totally going to start using, by the way), it doesn’t feel like you (or I or anyone) failed. I like that. Much more positive then I usually do. I’m with ya, E. I can’t wait to see more posts – and to read this one through. (I’ve been kinda doing the same thing with My Pathway to Liberation – when I remember that the blog is there – and I hope to be doing more with it.)

    • You only fail if you let whatever you’re fighting against kill you.

      I’ll be doing weekly major updates and smaller daily updates during my cleanse. I suggest going back and checking out the older posts. I had quite a bit of success until I stopped doing the blog on a near-constant basis.
