Day 8 of my 60 day juice fast was pretty uneventful...mostly I slept a lot and thought about all the things I should be doing but chose not to do :o)
I weighed in today at 174 still 13.5 lbs lost so no change since Friday.
Last week was really tough emotionally, especially days 4, 5 & 6...those days bitch slapped me silly. I found it difficult to concentrate (I still do), I also had a lot of the feelings I have been supressing with food come up...things like depression, panic attacks, tension, worry, lack of self confidence, self consciousness, anger and irritation (boy I bet that makes you want to do a juice fast huh?). At the time, they were all really difficult to deal with (especially the panic attacks), but after reflection, I was grateful to have felt these things. These are all the underlying issues that I have been trying to ignore by consuming mass amounts of food...everything I didn't want to face. I am glad I am in a space where I have some time to go through the emotion, deal with it (without using food as a coping mechanism) and research tools that can help me in the future.
I guess last week has taught me that I have been covering up a lot of things with food and now is the time to really sort through it all and work through it all so that I can become a healthier thinking individual who can use healthier coping mechanisms in the future.

Happy juicing everyone!
