Sorry I have not fulfilled my desire to post every day. I just haven't had time, and haven't had anything to say.
Right now, I am on the Mayo Clinic Diet. It's a pretty funky one, and Mayo Clinic does not claim to be the owner of the diet. In fact, there are alot of skeptics. But it has worked for me in the past, and I'm giving it another try. It's good for a quick start to get you going and motivated.
You can Google it and get all kinds of good and bad info, as well as the diet itself. Many people know this as the Grapefruit Diet.
I'm also using the Beck Diet Solution. This is the book that Northwest Weight Loss Surgery recommends to their patients, and I'm going to get down to work and follow it. It is a day by day tool to retrain your brain to think like a thin person.
So the scales are finally going in a downward direction, and I have set a temporary goal of 20 pounds. When I reach that point, I will set another goal, and so on.
