The 17 Day Diet ... Day 2

I know what my problem is ... I'm so lazy.  I have known this forever!  It just takes way too much energy to exercise.  And cooking has become a huge chore.  After working 9 hours (plus another 1 hour of travel time) the last thing I really want to do is cut up veggies for salad.  Now, I'm bound and determined to fix this lazy issue of mine and do something about this "extra baggage" I have been carrying around!

I saw, back in August maybe, an episode of The Doctors when they teamed up with Dr. Phil to do a weight loss contest with 10 people chosen from letters sent to the show.  They used The 17 Day Diet.  Now, even I know stuff like this and the Biggest Loser are not typical of the normal, run-of-the-mill person.  I do not have the time or money to pay a personal trainer to exercise with me 12 hours a day, or a chef to cook and feed me exactly what I'm allowed to eat.  I mean that would be really cool, but not reality.  Anyway, so this 17 Day Diet sounded interesting, and that was about as far as that thought went.  Then recently G talked to someone who bought the book and actually lost weight following the diet plan!  Okay ... so, G and I decided to just buy the book.  Here we go!

I read through the first 17-day cycle.  I went shopping and stocked up on all the foods I need for the first week.  I'm getting myself psyched up!  I don't have a scale ... I'm not going to concern myself with weight right now.  I just want to look better in my clothes, and maybe go down a size or two.  Stay positive ... I WILL FOLLOW THE PLAN IN THE BOOK!  I can do this ... I can do this!  And, the hardest thing for me to do, I WILL DRINK 8 GLASSES OF WATER A DAY!

I just finished my grilled cod fillet and steamed green beans, and yet another glass of water.  YUMMY!!  Day 2 went well ... I'll keep you posted!
