New Journey

 I am about to embark on an amazing new journey in my weight loss efforts. I have been there done that with a variety of diets, tricks, fads a college weight training class ( + 2 pounds) in the summer of 2009 and even administering my very own Byetta Diabetes medication injections twice a day for a weight loss experiment with very little results.(-10 pounds after 8 months and $$$)

 I finally  experienced a bit of success with the South Beach Diet. I had a whopping 60 pound loss. I was so excited and pleased with my results. After a while I switched to the next phase and thought that I would stay there to avoid a plateau.

Advance one 1, 200 mile move away from all of my family and friends and add a nice hearty Midwestern winter. I found myself enjoying the beautiful scenery of the midwest with a much thicker middle. My very first Michigan winter awarded me a 37 pound weight gain. I was shocked at my first step back on the scale. What was I thinking to allow a 37 pound comfort zone? Talk about fat and sassy!

I returned to a "modified" version of the South Beach Diet. I am now at a -12 pound loss. My Midwestern home-cooking winter bound scale now reads at a + 25 pound post South Beach Diet weight.

 I recently learned of the wonderful Herbalife program. While attending a soccer game, I noticed another soccer mom that I had to take a double-take to recongnize. She began the Herbalife program approximatley 5 months ago with a -59 pound weight loss to date. She looks amazing and feels so much better. Boy was I intrigued.

Today will begin my Herbalife program. Sunday will be my official start date. Today, I will sample my first meal replacement shake for my dinner. I am really excited to get my weight loss underway. Wish me luck. I invite you to join me along my journey and perhaps begin your very own. I will have a body scan on Wednesday to see the cold hard truth "magical numbers" that will tell me where my BMI stands, My lean ( ha, lol, me + the word lean) muscle percentage and necessary fat, bones, cartilage and so forth. My true estimated healthy weight will be revealed.
