Just wanted to update you on my progress. I have to be honest, this whole detoxing for 9 days is not as easy as I thought it would be. Don't get me wrong....I love fruits and veggies. I just didn't think it would be so hard to eat just those everyday. So I have to admit, I have cheated a little. I am still eating mostly fruits and veggies, but yesterday I was craving mashed taters and gravy, so my wonderful hubby took me to Fred's to have some. And yes, Missy, that's all I got. Fred's is a southern style buffett, so it was soooo tempting to eat something else. But I did good.
I finished reading the second book of Dr. Smith's and I'm thinking that might be a better way for me to go. No detoxing. Just 3 weeks of cycles to stick too. The extreme diet is to take weight off more quickly but learn how to eat correctly while you are doing it. Its a very strict regimen that you have to stick to or you will not take off the weight. That includes the exercises and the amount of time to do them. So I am really toying with trying the extreme diet instead. I think it's more up my alley. I have to tell you that will power is not my strong point, so both diets are a challenge for me. But I am determined to lose enough weight to get back into my size 16 clothes and stay there. They tell you to lose weight for yourself and not for someone else. And I believe that. However sometimes you do it for others to better yourself. Here are the reason's I'm doing it for others besides myself:New Grandbaby Scianimanico.Layla and Diana.
Wade.Scott.And of course, Hut.
These are all great reasons why I'm trying to do this for myself.
