Adventures in Juicing: Juice Fast - Day 3 of 5

Nothing really different from yesterday, except....

I have lost A LOT of weight.
6 pounds in 2 days.

This actually scares me a little.  I knew I'd lose some weight, but I'm already pretty small and didn't have to lose too much.  I didn't want to be underweight.

My tummy is flat, tho.

I never thought I was retaining any water or had much bloating, but I think that's the weight I lost.
I just feel... thin.  Like when I grip my hands together, my fingers feel... thin.

I don't mind the juice fast, but this rapid weight loss is definitely scaring me.

As much as I don't really want to, I think I have to adjust my juice fast for the last 2 days.

You see, H and I originally planned to do the juice fast a different way.  We were going to have juice as our meals and eat raw fruits and veggies as snacks whenever we wanted to.  I'm not quite sure when we decided to make this into an only juice (plus water) fast.

Anyway, starting tomorrow, I'm going to eat solid foods (raw fruits and vegetables) along with all the juicing.

I'm not doing this because I feel hungry because, believe it or not, I don't feel hungry.

I'm doing this because I don't want to be underweight and I don't want to get myself to an unhealthy place.

ANYWAaaaaaayyyy, here's a picture of my "dinner" tonight.

- Sweet potato
- Carrots
- Apple
- Orange
- Kale
- Chard
- Lettuce
- Ginger (not pictured)

It was alright.  I think we put in WAY too much ginger. hahaha.  It was kinda spicy. :P

I had no idea you can juice sweet potato, but I looked online and there's a lot of info about it!
It made the juice a little creamier, which was a nice difference from what we've been having.

2 more days!!!
