MJS, Prayers coming your way as well!
Linda, I'm with you there! I had about a day and a half of cookies and I gained 5 freakin' pounds! 5! lol I'm not putting them on my counter... I told Ivan that us women can gain by just looking at things... the water weight is crazy with us. I'm back on track today... just had my lemon water and going down in just a bit for my breakfast.... then I'm off to see a movie (Les Mis')... I want to be on track. I felt bloated all day yesterday.
I went to look at the mail today and I had 2 wrapped brownies shipped to me for my birthday... through the mail! Can you believe that? LOL From my upline through Avon... it was a "sweet" gift lol but I'm taking them with me to the movie and sharing with my son and his girlfriend...
I can't wait to share my new news with all of you but figure that time will come in it's own time and I don't want to jinx anything... so I'm going to reveal it when the time comes... but I do hope that this year will bring good things and that it'll be a super fun year for us all.
I'm looking to break out of the "comfort zone" as well and why not? We only live once, right?
Let's do it well! So happy to have you all as my friends!
By the way, someone here nominated me back in October (or earlier) to the powers that be (SparkPeople.com folk) that I'm a "success" story... they sent me a questionnaire to fill out, it was VERY intimidating at that time and was quite lengthy... talked of being open to outside media and the like... I hmmm'd and haaaaa'd over it but finally filled it out and sent them my before and after shots (heck, after I finally got to it, I was even more of a success story, right?)... anyway, that's what I did yesterday... so that is also a bit of news I had to share as well... wish me luck on that front as well... and thanks to the mystery person who nominated me... (must have been one of the coaches)...
Hugs to you all!
So excited about the 17 Day Diet. It has truly taught me new ways of eating and being healthy. Although I've not followed the daily cycles since I finished Cycle 2 at the start, I do tend to choose only foods from all three cycles. I incorporate the added carbs as I can and we are living a 17 DD Inspired life! Getting us to goal!
