Weight Loss Update #1

Hey Ladies So I have some great news I'm still on my journey and I've started a Juice Fast. I completed a 15 day Detox by NOW brand to restart my body and prepare for losing weight. This cleanse was great.During this time I also focused in on my eating habits eliminating processed foods, sugar, and all types of liquids except for water.The one bad habit I had was Chips since I would eat a Subway for Dinner.

This week I started a Juice Fast which basically means I will be juicing my foods which are fruits and vegetables only. Juicing is very healthy, it assists in weight loss, helps your body to heal, provides vital nourishment, and straightens your immune system. So while juicing my seem like a extreme measure I've learned that sometimes we have to take extreme measures.Its extreme for me to sit here every day eating processed and all the other unhealthy foods that could eventually make me sick, cause a disease and eventually make me die.

Today is Day 4 of my juice fast. How many days do I plan to continue?  Really I'm not sure I guess it depends on my results Maybe 30 or hopefully 60 Days. But I have learned I have to take this 1 Day at a time.  So far I've lost 6 pds on this juice fast and I feel great. I still cant believe how great juicing taste I love it because I'm not sacrificing my health I providing my body with all the nutrients it needs.I actually slipped on day 3 and at a small Frito pie and as soon as I started eating eat I wanted to throw it away. The taste just wasn't appealing to me and its not worth it.I don't plan on making this mistake again.

Any questions on Juice Fasting let me know.

Our Deepest Fear

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”

----from A Return to Love, by Marianne Williamson.

Under-processed Relaxer/ Texlaxed

Under Processed Relaxer........ SMH 

I am so confused I've doubted with myself many times whether I should stay texlaxed or do a corrective relaxer. I've relaxed two times this year with Elasta QP Lye Relaxer both left my hair under processed and texlaxed, unlike when I used the No Lye version (last year) my hair was completely relaxed and straighten. Not sure If I should go back to no lye relaxer or just switch to another lye brand. 

Texlax is not for me I love to be able to easily style my hair and have smoothness with styles I cant even make my bun look nice and I sure don't want to try a rollerset like this. I've came to the conclusion I love more bone straight relaxed hair its easier for to handle and grow.

Corrective Relaxer here I come I am so scared but I guess I have to be a big girl. Wish me luck I'll let you ladies know how it goes. I plan on Relaxing later this week so I'll have time to find a better relaxer to try.

As for as my hair styling goes I just been buning my hair and I'm really getting tired of this styles so hopefully after I relax I can try something new.I'm really interested in trying some half wigs, we'll see how that goes.
I co-washed my hair last night with Elasta QP Intense applied my H20 leave in and air dried in a low bun.

I'll also be doing a update later this week on my Weight Loss
