Day 14...


I am not a dieter. I never have been... (cue the image of me to the right. In my simple I-live-in-Mary Beth-land  mind, the HUGE camera makes me look very thin...). According to a couple of so-called doctors that I've seen over the past few months, I need to lose some pounds (whaaaaaa?) and ...get this.. start exercising! (WHAAAAAAA?) Geeze Louise, I watch "Dancing with the Stars", "Survivor", "The Amazing Race" AND was a cheerleader in high school!.... What else could I possibly do?!!

Well, in an effort to get my blood work numbers looking better, I started checking out all the diet programs out there these days. Being a used-to-be-home-ec teacher (with a minor in nutrition... haha) I knew that my program would have to be  nutritional sound, easy to understand, use real food and hopefully not leave me miserable every day. From "The Doctors" show, I learned about a doctor developed "17 Day Diet" program that offered a plan that changes every 17 days and seemed to meet all of the qualifications that I was looking for. I ordered the book and started to get excited about the changes that might be coming in my direction. After reading the first few chapters, I was ready to begin. I am happy to say that this morning on day 14, I have lost ELEVEN pounds! ...and I have to say that I have felt very content every day. I already feel so much better and more energetic! Next 17-Days, I'm coming atcha....

Good for you! That is great! I should get that book cause dieting just does not excite me at all. I can't wait to hear how you do! Looks like you are off to a great start though.

Way to go! Keep at it, and your numbers will be down and you'll be feeling a whole lot better.

I heard about this book on Dr Phil and i was thinking about buying it, too....does it just discuss diet and meals? Certainly sounds like it works!! Good for you

It also explains the "job" of everything you're eating. It is very easy reading!
