While the statement "back in the saddle again" may remind you of Gene Autry OR Aerosmith, it means the same thing to me: I'm back at it. Daddy's all better (for the most part), and this Stella is finally getting her groove back. After nearly a month of food on the run, hospital food and restaurant food from here there and everywhere between Jackson, Mississippi and home....I AM BACK BABY!
Last week, my good friend Dot and I did the 7 Day (Detox) Diet. You fellow old school dieters will remember this as the old Cabbage Soup Diet. As hard as it was.....we did it! We both lost weight and it was just the jumpstart I needed to get back in the swing of things. I am still experiencing the "hangover". It happens when you take away all the bad stuff like processed foods, sugar, etc...but now into my second week, my skin is clear and I'm feeling much better!
I really do recommend that if you are in a slump...try the 7 Day Diet. I will tell you this: do not even try to do this if you don't have willpower, if you need to skip a day or rearrange a day, etc., you MUST be willing to make sacrifices in order for this to be a successful venture. Many say that they lost up to 10 pounds in 7 days. However, I want YOU to understand that the less you have to lose the less you WILL indeed lose. Dot lost 4 pounds and I lost 5 1/2. The point really was not losing the weight for me, it was ridding myself of all the unwanted toxins in my body. As always, please consult your doctor before starting any diet that may compromise your health....I'm professional dieter/lifestyle changer....NOT a doctor!
