Checking in/Update

Yesterday was one week on my liquids-only diet.  I can't believe that it's been a week without any solid food.  I feel sooooo much better.  Who knows if it's the things I'm doing or not doing but probably both. Cold turkey on Coke, I know that has to make me feel better; I don't have the roller coaster of sugar highs and crash all day long.  The green tea capsules keep me energized if not jittery when I don't take it at the exact right time.  

Okay, so here's what I'm doing:  I'm taking green tea supplements, drinking Metabolic Restart, and on a cleansing supplemental therapy.  The first day I lost a couple of pounds just from the cleansing therapy-swoosh-sorry, TMI.  They say the first 10 pounds are the hardest and that's because if you are making all these sacrifices and you don't see any change you give up.  At least that's what I do.

So, I've lost five pounds.  Ten years ago it would have been 15 pounds.  But I am feeling better in my jeans-the ones I have refused to go up a size in.  They were getting so uncomfortable but I know by watching Hoarders that these things get overwhelming easily so I had come to a crossroads.  I need a deadline or crossroads to motivate you and I was at the end.  This is not to be skinny, this is to shed the 30 pounds I gained in the last six months supposedly from one of the meds I was on.  Of course I didn't loose the weight when I went off the meds.  Next is the gym.  It's been on my to-do list for awhile and still is.  

And I've been creating.  This is a yippie for me because I'd kinda lost the desire along with all else before those rascally holidays but it's back!  Just like most who create, I was worried that it was gone-silly me.

Stay tuned.  I'm moving into a new spot at The Pink Cabbage and I'll have lots of pics from that.  Have a blessed day.
