Welcoming Myself Back... And Juicing?
I used this board daily back in 2007- really helped to keep myself accountable. Now I am back- but under a new name... (long story- I was Patches... but lost all the info and log-in stuff and was just easier to start all over...)
Anyway- another long story and I have put on 30+ pounds in the past year. Husband has had non-hodkins lymphoma for 4 years, under went 2 stem-cell transplants in 2011-2012, and is still recovering from the most recent one- even though it is still a year later. (Fighting Graph vs Host disease...)
So- STRESS and lifestyle changes have packed on some pounds. I am currently going to a doctor who is doing a plethora of testing to see where I am with hormones, cortical, etc...
So- in addition to welcoming myself back into this community- I have a question... Are there any "juicers" out there? I have a friend in Phoenix who swears by juicing veggies and fruit. She has lost about 20 pounds and looks great!
Anyone out there also doing this? If so- how have you liked it so far? Do you see results you were hoping for? (not just weight, but feeling healthier...?)
Also- any good combinations/recipes you have done or really like?
I bought a cheap juicer at Target today- thinking that if I really like doing this- I could always upgrade.
I also bought a ton of different veggies- did a lot of cleaning and cutting tonight, and plan to start tomorrow.
Thanks for reading- and any input you would be willing to give is
PS- we are planning to take a Disney Fantasy Cruise in May- but waiting for the very last day to make our final payment- to be double certain hubby is well enough to go! Also- to add to my STRESS- my perfectly healthy, athletic, 25-year-old son has a non-cancerous tumor in his sinuses that will need to be removed- oh yes- life has been "fun" for me! Just a "freak" thing that he discovered about 4 weeks ago...
