Yes, I've Been Called Both Cheesey AND Nutty

So the past three days, my lunch has consisted of a baggie of almonds (about a heaping handful) and a WW string cheese. Today I threw in frozen grapes for some fruit action, because I haven't had much of that. Lunch has been deliciously filling, right up until the time I got home. Of course then it's supper time! I have been super hungry at night, after dinner. HURRAY for WW desserts, although I've been eating a single serving bag of chips at night too. But I'm still dropping the poundage I put on last month, which is excellent.

On Tuesday I'm starting a 7 day cleansing diet that my co-workers told me about (although I will most likely only make it 5 days - day 6 and 7 I will be traveling for work and no access to the stuff I'll need to eat). I realize it's a fad diet, but it's all fruit and vegetables, so I can't see where it will do any harm, and those who I've know to have tried it have had a lot of success. So if nothing else, it will jump start the weight loss. The way I see it, at the best, I'll lose 10 pounds. At the worst, I've stuffed myself full of veggies for nothing - although my body will probably be happy with the veggies, so it's a wash! Fingers crossed, all will go well. :) I just have to figure out what I will feed the Beau while I'm doing this, because there is no way he will be up for doing this with me. The man likes to eat!

So I'm excited about this venture - I'm hoping it will give me the jump start that I will need! I will report back soon!

YAY Labor Day Weekend!

Don't make me beat you, cause I will...almonds and string cheese is not enough for lunch. you need at least one complex/heathly carb...wheat toast or something! you're killing me!

Hey Erin! I didn't know you had a blog! I recently started blogging in June--- at first I hated it because I felt like I was having a conversation with myself, but now I like it...even if I am talking to myself it somehow seems therapeutic. Anyhow I read a couple of your posts and I feel like we have similar thoughts on this issue of weight....glad to know I'm not alone. Good luck with your plan! If you find some instant weight loss secret, please pass it my way!
