Have I Mentioned I Don’t Really Like Juice?

Since yesterday I have become fairly obsessed with reading weight loss success stories online. Lots of the ones I read from people who had juiced reported that longstanding medical issues or scars on their body had healed as a result of juicing. Honestly? I kinda chalked it up to the kind of wishful, hyperbole-filled thinking that flies online, a place where people honestly believe Bill Gates will give them $5,000 of his hard-earned money for sharing a post when he isn’t even leaving much to his own kids in his will. But this morning I glanced down at my thumbnail and stopped in my mental tracks. Just over a year ago I split my thumb nail almost down the middle. Nothing has worked to heal it- nail hardener, liquid bandage, actual bandages, etc. Once I thought I nipped it in the bud by cutting my nails really short almost to the crack. But when the nail grew out the crack was right there again. I have long hair and am prone to playing with it and so it would always get caught in the crack, annoying me and leading to mental schemes on how I could get it fixed once and for all- tea tree oil? Thumb transplant? But this morning after four loonnnnng days on the juice fast, it is almost healed. Only a small crack still shows and I can’t even feel it anymore. I still cannot believe it.

Sooo this is something. My flattening stomach is another. I am nearly at 8 pounds lost in the 4 days. I am honestly not sure whether the weekend will be harder or easier. I guess I will just have to wait and see.
