Hey girls!  
Thought I'd join as well, because I really need some support. I have been out of shape in the last 8 months - study, moving, but most of all laziness. I am 32, 5'9, current weight is 181 lb. I have been doing juice fasting for 4 years now having acquired my 30-days programme from the Fasting Centre in the US. It seems the only diet that works for me, at least it gives me that necessary kick to get back in shape. Anywho, I started my 30 days' programme yesterday and my goal is 165 lb by 17 August. About my excercise - until now I did wind-surfing, water skiing, power walking (but not regularly) and salsa dancing once a week. From this week I plan to make my power walking more regular and to add to all of the above excercises with dumbbells/latina dancing/tai-bo in the morning, tennis once a week and cycling. Uph! Hope to become a regular member of this community as well. Good luck to all of you.

Re: thanks for your message
Oh, I see. It seems your energy is still up which is good. But is it fasting for a whole month? I guess I'm not used to the idea of fasting for that long. I've done a 2-3 day type thing to detox my system as well...

Yes, I know, if is quite unusual. I am a bit more used to the idea as I am from Russia and it has been quite popular part of healthy life style over there for years. But I must admit that when I tried it first time I was so surprised that I wasn't loosing my energy. Although if you think about it logically, juices are quite high in calories - so once you followed correct procedures to enter the fast then there should be no problem. If you are interested you may have a look at the site of the Juice Fasting International where I got my program from - www.fasting.com. They explain it better on their site. Water fasting is quite different, it takes more preparation and I imagine, would not allow one to excercise hard due to the lack of energy. I have also done short periods of water fast - 1-2 days at a time. Have been thinking of making it regular - have 1 day a week a water fasting - but never got around to it. Well, it is not over yet, I may still do it one day.
