I hope it goes well for you! I have lost weight successfully eating only fruits, veggies, and lean meat (chicken or turkey only), though I didn’t do anything with juicing. I’ll be checking back to see if it works for you – I too have a little bit I want to lose.

@organizedbride11: Im in the same boat! I am in my friends wedding on 09/10/11 and I need a little more room in my Bridesmaid or Best Man Dress! Then I just want to keep it off until my wedding and honeymoon of course!

@thetraceface: So question… are the veggies consumed only raw?  Or can they be cooked. I try to be vegan as much as possible for weight loss and health, so this isn’t too far off but I am a vegetarian, so maybe I can do with it with tofu, tempeh or seitan.

@Mrs.Firefly1: I tried to mix cooked and raw vegetables, maybe 50/50 or leaning more towards the raw side. I do eat plenty of salads, raw veggies with hummus, etc. – but I also love roasting veggies, making zucchini noodles with sauteed mushrooms and marinara or pesto sauce, and so on. Before this my diet was full of processed food, so I really tried to convert to a healthier lifestyle without going so overboard that I can’t maintain it. Also – I tried not to eat carbs and actually went a long time without bread, rice, or pasta – but I did give in a little here or there.

As a side note, I did this last year. I have pretty much taken the summer off (I am a teacher, so my world revolves around the school year), but I am now recommitted to getting back to weight loss!

@thetraceface: Thanks for all that info!  Since I became a veggie a year ago, I committed myself to only become a healthy veggie.  Which is a great thing in the first place because being a veggie itself keeps you away from pretty much most fast food places easily.  I also decided to make fresh foods my priority.  I hardly go down the processed food aisles. And my grocery bill is such much lower! : ) 

I don’t mean to prey, but how did the weight loss go?  Did you also work out?

Is there a number you can throw out of there of pounds lost?
