OK — so my more rational, practical self has decided that the best thing really is a healthy well balanced diet.  I will try weight watchers (again)….i have done the diet before and i have had success…but the weight does come off a little slow.  clearly, a healthier way to lose and better chances of the weight “staying off”.  at heart, i am truly a health-nut.  I eat mostly organic foods, i shop daily at my local health food store and local farm.  I think that my personal library contains probably every diet/nutrition book written.  I love to read about health, wellness and medicine.  I am very proactive about my health…i love getting a “check up”  i love acupuncture and I do take a ton of supplements (when i am in my groove)…my trouble is i do OFTEN slip out of my groove and find myself in the Italian Pork store or… i bake or cook…cooking is really my therapy…i get lost and it feels so good and feels just as good to eat…guess that’s why it’s called soul food…

so…today i am doing my personal best to be well…and make smarter choices… I am going to try the “core plan”.  i have never done core before, so i am not sure what to expect.  at least, with weight watchers, it is not so terribly restrictive.  there is a nice amount of “edible freedom”. and i think that i need that.   i will report back often and let you know my progress.

Isagenix day 5, take 2

August 23, 2008

this morning i lost another pound, for a total of 5 lbs!

i did eat more than i was supposed to yesterday.   i was supposed to fast but i ate 2 hard-boiled eggs, melon in the morning, walnuts and the isagenix chocolates. 

today i will have a shake for breakfast with the accelerator pill and a shake for lunch… a nice yummy dinner (probably sushi!) and another accelerator pill…  the shake days are pretty easy.  the shakes are HUGE, thick and filling.  pretty yummy…

isagenix cleanse, take 2!

August 21, 2008

ok, so it’s been about 2 months since the last cleanse…and yes i gained most of the weight that i lost back, BUT…i was terrible.  so I am going to give it another go…do the 11 day cleanse, lose the weight and then go to smaller, healthier meals and see if I can keep it off…

i am on day 3, i have lost 2 1/2 lbs already…
