Day 8 ... Pineapple bliss and a special note...

Ok , so yesterday I had to cook spaghetti with meat sauce and made corn bread while 4 people enjoyed it as I sat there with my green juice lol.  That was HARD! I have 3 more days thats what I was thinking.  Skinny ankles, feeling good and just need to keep the momentum.  Well now I am on day 8.  Got up a little late this morning.  I went inside to make my morning juice thinking only 2 more days.  Time seems to go by slow when you have food on your mind lol.  No weight loss this morning!  So how can that be?  Maybe I got more calories in my juice yesterday then I should have? Not sure, or maybe I am building muscel from my dancing...whatever it is I can still feel the difference when I put on my cloths and it feels great.  So let the battle continue and this is truly a life change just not a 10 day thing.  It is helping me to see I can make the right choices just need to stay strong and not give in to temptation!  I found a special note this morning on my juicer see photo for what it says!
