Ugh! The scale has been creeping up and more parties and restaurant food is still in the near future. Time to get serious and take off a few pounds -- and then probably do it again as soon as January gets here!
For me "getting serious" means pulling out the recipe for the "Cabbage Soup Diet" and that's exactly what I did today. Stopped by my favorite produce store (Sprouts) and got all the ingredients, and tonight it is perking merrily away on low -- all ready for me to begin bannishing those pounds first thing in the morning. The plan isn't too bad, really! In fact, I love the first day, the veggie soup is healthy and tasty, and you can combine it with all the fresh fruits and veggies you want also. But . . . . . no bananas. Most other fruits are OK, I think. I'll be doing apples and blueberries mostly, plus some fresh broccoli or maybe a 'sort of' salad (no dressing, but a bit of lemon juice is OK). Will also cut out any drinks except water, and there will be LOTS of that. I will pick a couple of lemons off my tree and have lemon juice squeezed into it and add a bit of artificial sweetener.
So watch my progress, and eat your heart out! Hey! It works for me!
