I am so liking this diet. I went through the first 17 days and did not have any of the shakes, moodiness or other symptoms of other diets I have tried. I am now down 16 lbs. I had a customer ask me if I had lost 30 lbs and was shocked I only lost 16. Only LOL considering it has been 19 days I have been on this diet and 16 lbs is awesome. I can see my wrist bone. I am wearing rings I haven't been able to wear in ages. I noticed my knees are no longer ... Sun, 2 Sep 2012 22:36:01 EST Week One - 17 Day Diet http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5023901 Well week one is officially done. I weighed myself this morning and found that I have dropped 7.2 lbs. I am pretty happy with this. I managed to get through a poker game (had fun), a very stressful part time job (not fun) and a friend having a hard time. I will say the changes are bigger than the weight. My wrist is no longer fat. I can actually see my wrist bone, which I haven't seen in years, so my wrists are now at their smallest. I am not getting the nausea or the chest pains I hav...

It is a bunch of women who get together to talk, laugh and play a little poker. This host is very good at chocolate covered strawberries. She made chocolate covered strawberries, chocolated covered pretzels, and other really good goodies. I didn't eat any of the junk. I drank water all night. I still had fun and enjoyed my friends. I can't wait to go to another. Fri, 17 Aug 2012 19:33:41 EST and the Journey continues http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=776178 I just weighed myself this morning and my first reaction was "oh I gained weight". I was pretty upset and took a shower with a heavy heart trying to figure out how I could have gained. Then I went to record the weight and noticed I actually lost weight. Not only did I lose weight but I lost 2.8 pounds. Funny I had thought I weighed less the week before. Too funny. Needless to say I am not so upset. LOL Thank goodness for logging the weight right. Well I am on my way. Sun, 7 Oct 2007 12:18:42 EST Mini Vacation http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=739663 Well I just had a feat. I came back from visiting a ranch in New York on Labor Day. Usually I gain about 5 pounds when I come back but not this time. This time I only gained 1.5 lbs. I am pretty happy about that.
