I did it!  I dared myself to do the 3 day detox juice cleanse!  I lost a total of 5.5 pounds and it was a lot easier than I thought it was going to be!  My little "a-ha!" moment from doing this 3 day juice and water cleanse was that if we really push ourselves beyond our comfort zones we can accomplish far more than we ever imagined.
I am competing in the St. Luke's $10,000 Weight Loss Challenge this year in the 'Kept It Off" category.  This year my "Before" weight is actually about half a pound down from what my "After" weight was at last year's challenge.
Even though I look okay and can comfortably wear smaller sizes, my next challenge is pushing myself to get to my goal weight.  This is not about vanity (okay, maybe a little) but it's to honor the memory of my father and his mother.
When my father was my age he had a quadruple bypass.  While he was in the post surgery recovery room his surgeon gathered the family together to discuss how it went  and what to expect etc.  That's when the Doctor point blank stared me in the eye and told me that heart disease runs in my family.  The Doctor told me exactly what I needed to do (maintain a lean healthy weight)  if I did not want to wind up in the same situation as my father or suffer the same fate as my grandmother who had her first heart surgery at the age of 30 and then died young from heart related complications. So much attention is given to pink this and pink that and breast cancer...but it's actually heart disease that is the #1 killer of women in America!
