T - 8 days to the Ruley Reboot

In 8 days, we will be starting a reboot of our bodies.
Our life together started almost eight years ago. During the two years before our marriage, we both gained approximately 100 pounds. How did we gain 100 lbs each? Contributing factors included jobs in a call center, fast food, and no physical activity. Over the past five years, we have attempted to change, but nothing has made a lasting difference. We have tried all the usual suspects such as gym memberships, Weight Watchers, and most recently, a physician guided weight loss program.
We watched the movie Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead last week and it has inspired us to try again to regain our health. We will be starting a 60-day juice fast in eight days (Friday January 13th). We will be preparing for it by eating whole grains, nuts, seeds, fruits, and vegetables only for the five days prior to our fast. Please join us on our journey! We will need all the support we can get.


  1. I really look forward to hearing about your experiences; I know it won't be easy. I am looking forward to starting the program with my wife soon.

    Best of luck from Texas!

  2. Very excited to follow along! Do you plan on trying to post everyday during the fast to give updates?

  3. We plan to post every day during the fast, and every 2 to 3 days going into and coming off of the juice fast.
